July is upon us! Oh boy, did that come quick. And how? One minute we’re ringing in the New Year, the next thing you know we’re half way through and it feels like it all happened in a blink. But 2013 has been so good so far, sometimes it just makes me want to take off my shoes and dance.
July will be a stay-put month for this girl as June was heavy on the travelling adventures, leaving me with the desire for more easy CL summertime fun with Cleveland family and friends.
If a few weeks at home are just what I need after a whole lot of summer travel, then a diet heavy on fruits and veggies is just what I need after a whole lot of summer travel eating. So, let’s whip up a smoothie!
This smoothie is wonderful. Not just because it’s packed with many good-for-you ingredients. It also happens to be red, white and blue. What could be more appropriate on July 4th? Hot dogs, burgers, corn on the cob, watermelon, potato salad, cold beer, ice cream…nope, nothing I can think of.
Red, White and Blueberry Smoothie
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
Pop all of your ingredients into a blender, top with the lid and blend at high speed for 30 seconds or so. Pour into a small glass. Serve immediately.
