There’s nothing like an ice cold smoothie on a hot day when you’re working from home in a flat with no A/C. Am I right?! Smoothies make a regular appearance in my kitchen during the summer. The ingredients are cheaper in the summer months, so it’s easy to stock-up and prep things ahead of time (or at least as much as I can with a freezer the size of a shoe box).
Lately I’ve been *attempting* to both eat more vegetables on a daily basis and cut out sweets and junk. Not just because of my fitness goals, but also in hopes it will help with the terrible acne I’ve been dealing with for the past year. This whole “more veggies, less sugar” thing has been way harder than I anticipated. I’ve had a lot of set-backs, but I’m trying not to get hung up on that and just keep pushing forward.
That’s why I love this smoothie so much: it’s got tons of vitamin C, vitamin A, antioxidants, and healthy fats (to make you feel full!) which makes it a super hydrating, energy boosting, healthy skin concoction. There’s not a lot of fruit, which keeps the sugar count low, and no banana. I’ve been making this at least twice a week for the past two months, and I crave it now after an indulgent weekend. Give it a try! I hope you like.
