Recipe: Sunshine In A Glass (Cremesicle Smoothie)


I think we all could use some happy vibes right now...

What do you think?!

February is almost here, which means a step closer to spring and all things warm and fuzzy and Valentines. But right now, January has provided little more than a major dose of cold weather and winter doldrums... making us all wish we could run away to some tropical island. Or stay inside all day and cuddle on the couch with a fuzzy pup piled under a stack of warm blankets.

Yes... exactly like that!!!
I was inspired to make this smoothie by the pile of clementines sitting on my counter top. I LOVE clementines. They're little nuggets of juicy happiness in their own special wrapping paper. Peel one open and you're immediately overtaken by the sweet smell of citrus. If you close your eyes, you can almost believe it's summer again ... but alas, reality check here: We still have many months of cold ahead!

So while you're waiting for warmer weather, make this tropical smoothie full of immune boosting Vitamin C and happy-vibe boosting Vitamin D that is sure to make you and your taste buds smile ... because life is what you make of it!



Ingredients:

8oz vanilla soy milk
2 clementines, peeled
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 banana
Juice of 1/4 lemon
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp chia seeds

Optional:
2 tsp maca powder

Directions:

Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. 
Sip slowly and enjoy a little taste of sunshine to brighten your day :D

Can I get a "GO Hokies" ?!?

Kenya enjoyed playing in the snow while I was busy taking pictures.

P.S. Happy Hump Day! 

You're halfway through the work week... wooohooo!
