Is Winter over yet? Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, and snowflakes, and the magical atmosphere surrounding this season. But…I don’t know about you, its so hard to get my butt out of bed to a foggy and dark morning, being forced to leave the warmth of my blankets.
This morning was just like that. Fog was surrounding our windows, so thick I couldn’t even see the border of our balcony. I grabbed my blanket off the bed, ran to the thermostat to turn the heat on, and then ran back into my room, jumping into bed. Ugh…
I decided I needed some sunshine. And since the weather wouldn’t cooperate with me, I had to create my own inside. I painted my nails a bright lemon yellow color, and made a tropical smoothie that tasted like summer in a glass. I think I will start my mornings like this more often. After tasting this smoothie, I had so many different fruit combinations and flavors running through my mind that I cannot wait to try.
This smoothie is super healthy, thick, and delicious.
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 banana, sliced
the juice of 1 or 2 oranges, freshly squeezed
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 or 2 tbs of honey for a hint of sweetness
Handful of ice cubes, to make the smoothie icy and thick
Blend all ingredients in a blender, pour into a glass, and enjoy. Picture sunshine for the full effect 🙂
