Is it me, or is this week seriously dragging? Maybe it’s because I worked on Monday, or maybe it’s just hard to get back into the swing of things after a week off. Either way, I am so ready for the weekend.
Another thing I’m ready for? A vacation. Somewhere warm, sunny, and on the beach. Preferably with a fancy cocktail in my hand and a good book.
But alas, I’m here in Boston, with temps in the 20s during the day and single digits at night. Oh, and I have a puppy that needs to pee every hour and a half. At least she’s speedy about it though. Honey, on the other hand, has to survey several blocks before choosing a suitable patch of grass. And heaven forbid anyone walks by, a car stops, or the wind changes direction. Then it’s all over and I’m guaranteed another twenty minutes of wandering the neighborhood.
You’d think all of this time freezing outside would steer me towards a warm beverage, but I just haven’t been able to get a tropical smoothie off my mind. Pineapple, orange, banana, and just a little avocado to create that perfectly creamy texture. This smoothie is like a little taste of vacation.
- ½ C. Non-Dairy Milk (I used plain, unsweetened almond milk)
- ¼ C. Pineapple Juice (or fresh/frozen pineapple)
- 1 Banana (preferably frozen)
- 1 Small Orange
- ½ a Small Avocado
- Juice of ½ a Lemon
- Handful of Ice
- Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a fancy glass and pretend you’re on vacation somewhere tropical.
And now I’m craving a hot chai latte…if only Starbucks would deliver.
Is it freezing where you are too? Anyone else feel like it should be Saturday (or at least Friday night) already?
