Smoothies may be more of a summer drink, but when I have a fridge full of the ingredients for a perfect smoothie I don’t have another choice!
Seriously, just LOOK at those strawberries. B-E-A-utiful.
After my Saturday morning workout this past weekend, I came home sweaty, red face and all. I knew exactly what I could make. Just a few short minutes later, I had a flavorful, fruity smoothie to cool me off.
I spent a lot of time at Planet Smoothie in high school. Captain Kid anyone? Brooke–I know you know what I’m talking about 🙂 There is a Planet downtown, but not any place like it too close to me anymore. I really miss those smoothie days.
While smoothies can be full of added sugars and pack on the calories, a homemade smoothie can be very low cal and a great way to start the day. This particular one comes out to around 180 calories.
