It’s the summer. It’s kinda really awesome.
When I think of summer, among many many cool things, I think of smoothies. And how I always feel really good about myself if I have one for a meal. So healthyyyy, woot woot!
Well, I did that ^_^
I went a-searching on Pinterest, searched for strawberry smoothies (cause strawberries were what we had the most of. Totally cool, strawberries are ammmmazing ^_^)
and I found… the Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie
So delicious, oh my goodness. I didn’t completely follow the recipe, haha. I didn’t include the cashews, all the strawberries I used were not frozen, so I upped the amount of ice I included. And I just kind of eyeballed how much lemonade I put in.. Thankfully we had some from.. whenever we made it last, haha. It’s not like regular lemonade, it’s Lavender Basil lemonade.
I couldn’t really tell a whole lot of difference by using the non-normal lemonade, I think it’s amazing both ways.
Plus, it’s got lots of good nutritional things in there.. like vitamin C, fiber, potassium, a little bit of protein (depending if you use the nuts..)
But I had a huge cup, almost finished it (I tried! I seriously tried, haha!) and had an awesome amount of energy so I then worked out for an hour. And wasn’t too tired when I got done.
So yes. Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie? Ohhhh yeah.
