Summer Dream Smoothie

Image

It’s zero degrees here right now. I can’t think of a better time to have a smoothie, can you?! Cold outside, might as well make yourself cold inside as well. I know that might not sound fun but I drink smoothies every day so I’m used to it. And by used to it I mean I drink it and then lay on the couch covered in blankets for the next hour. But that’s okay. Totally worth it.

This smoothie is a combination of all of my favorite summer fruits. Yes, I know I should buy seasonally. But I think we all need to splurge every once in a while. Fruit splurge!

I actually got a really good deal on the blueberries last week (actually my dad got them, but still) and that inspired this summertime blast.

Watermelon, mango, blueberries, pineapple = perfection.

Summertime Smoothie

I got my wisdom teeth removed on Monday. I have been in misery this past week. It was definitely worse that I expected.

So I’ve had such a limited diet this week and I’ve basically been living off of this smoothie. It’s summery, chilly, and yummy. Strawberries, blueberries, and watermelon. You can’t go wrong with this! Especially when you’re mouth is the size of a watermelon.

Simple recipe. Simply delicious!

This is great if you’re in a hurry, if you’re in need of relief like I’ve been, or if you just want something to enjoy. 🙂
