It seems like spring has finally arrived – hello gorgeous weather! And I could not be happier. It finally inched above 65 today and we had the glorious sun shining all afternoon. I took full advantage and sat out on the patio for a better part of the afternoon reading a book and relaxing. Speaking of, I’ll be doing loads of that the next few days as I nurse an aggravated lower back joint. I’m on bed rest with light walking per doctor’s orders – in other words, “we gotta baby this, Maris.” Alrighty, Doc – I’m on it! Pinterest and blog ideas, here I come!
On another note, I’m totally into smoothies. They’re my go to, no matter what the circumstance. I was craving a little something sweet the other day and decided a smoothie would do the trick (of course!) so whipped up this incredibly easy, and not to mention pink (!!), mason jar of yum. Between the sweetness of the bananas + just a tad of cocoa, this choconanaberry smoothie did the trick.
Smoothies are such an easy way to get loads of the nutrients you need packed into one drink that’s easy to sip on the go. And don’t we all need ‘on the go’ these days. Sometimes, we just don’t know exactly how to blend it all together or what ingredients/flavors compliment each other well.
So – with that sweet deliciousness, I’d like to introduce a new series on the blog: THE SMOOTHIE BAR! Think of it as your virtual “smoothie king” destination, only healthier, fresher, and DIY. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite smoothie blends and ingredients, and taking some of your questions and “mystery” ingredients and blending them up for some sweet smoothies! Weight in in the comments (weekly) on what ingredient you’re dying to know how to smooth together and yours could be the featured ingredient in the next Smoothie Bar post. My goal is that you all will become fancy-shmancy smoothers!
*Next week’s featured ingredient will be based on a reader suggestion or question. Leave yours below!*
