Try this incredibly refreshing and invigorating drink today!!!
I think I’ve shared this piece of info several times before: I was never a smoothie drinker.
I was too busy, and considered it a waste of time. I could hardly get healthy meals on the table nevermind THINK about a drink.
But then came quarantine, and I started drowning even WORSE in keeping my family together in the best way possible. (Can anyone else relate?)
Thankfully, school started winding down and I could see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
And it was getting hot.
Add the immunity issues a pandemic brings, and I got my girls to experiment with me in the kitchen, and this is what we came up with.
I call them “special ingredients” because I had to order them in order to make the smoothie what it is. But you may already have them on hand, or may just want a new grocery item to try with the change of seasons.
These grapefruits add a great twist to the smoothie and give it that tart, fresh flavor. I was not a huge fan of citrus until the heat started cranking outdoors and my waistline wasn’t where I wanted it to be. So if you are in either of those camps with me, I highly suggest you give it a try if you’re game.
The other “special” things we needed were baobab and collagen, but if you’ve been on the THM train for any amount of time especially during corona-time, you PROBABLY already have these on hand.
So once you’ve ordered and collected your ingredients, PLEASE do yourself a favor and try this smoothie.
