Hello and happy Friday, my friend! Here, have a Pink Power Smoothie. 🙂
It’s a good day — no, a GREAT day — for an open thread, where we’ll talk about anything — makeup, cats, skincare, food (although I don’t know how much help I’ll be in that department), blogging, photography, pineapples, what have you… It’s like coffee talk, except we’ll have smoothies.
Warm up those fingers, and I’ll meet you in the comments! The open thread starts right meow…
How to Make a Pink Power Smoothie
Adapted from Oh She Glows
Incidentally, I feel ready to take on the freakin’ world when I have one of these bad boys for breakfast, and it holds me over till lunch. My version leaves out the coconut oil…because that was just a little too rich for my tum, but even without it, it’s still filling.
- 1 cup water or coconut water
1/2 medium avocado (pit removed)
2 celery stalks, diced
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 small/medium lightly steamed beet, ends trimmed and diced
1 lemon, juiced
1 tsp of honey (or to taste)
Wash and lightly steam the beet (you could leave the beet raw, but my blender can’t handle that ish), then chop, chop, chop it!
Place in a blender and blend on high until smooooove.
Add more honey if you like.
Slurp it all up, YUM!
