It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday! So how many of you hate me now for getting that song stuck in your head? Your welcome!
Ok, so how many of you have been obsessed with smoothies now that it’s summertime? MEMEMEME! It’s weird. I VERY rarely eat smoothies in the winter, but as soon as it starts to get warm, they are all I eat. Almost daily. My blender is getting a serious workout!
The great thing about smoothies is that there are so many varieties right? And lets face it, it’s kinda hard to make a nasty tasting fruit smoothie, unless you are adding in a bunch of stuff or nasty flavored protein powder.
So what are my faves? I keep a stock of bags of frozen fruit in my freezer for starters. Outside of that, I use two main kinda of frozen mixes. Jamba juice and Yoplait. The yoplait is milk based, and the Jamba juice is well, duh, juice (apple) based. Depending on my mood, I sway back and forth on which base I want, so I like to keep both kinds in my freezer.
I also like to keep spinach on hand for green monsters. Honestly as much as I like the taste of these, I can’t handle the consistency too much, especially after a run and I just want a nice cold smoothie.
My favorite “store bought” smoothie is of course from Smoothie King. My two favorite flavors are slim n trim strawberry and immune builder. If you haven’t tried these, you are missing out!
I would love to experiment with some new smoothie flavors (I have a couple on my recipe page) one day when I have some time.
Yesterday I ran 3 easy miles at my parents house. I had some running skirts sales appointments over in their neck of the woods. I tried running in some racing flats to see if it hurt my knee, and WOW I am not used to running in flats! My calves and feet were SCREAMING and I am sure I will pay tomorrow!
QOTD: What is your favorite smoothie combo? homemade or store bought?
