20140616-140446-50686018.jpg

Nothing like a beautiful sunny day to catch some healthy rays. But what could be a more perfect addition to relaxing in the sun than a strawberry banana smoothie? I don’t know if there could be anything better. What’s your favorite smoothie combination?

Here’s an easy Strawberry Banana Smoothie recipe:
Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup fresh strawberries, diced
2 ripe bananas, sliced
3/4 cup milk or substitute soy, rice, almond, or coconut milk
1/2 cup ice cubes
Sprigs of mint (optional)

Directions:
Place strawberries and bananas into a blender.
Add ice cubes and choice of milk.
Mix ingredients on low until well blended (if needed, occasionally stop the blender and stir mixture away from sides and blade).
Serve immediately.
Optional: Garnish with a sprig of mint and slice of strawberry.

Berries in the Backyard

Berries in the Backyard

Nothing like a tupperware filled with strawberries and raspberries to freshen up on this hot hot day. The only thing that would make this combination better would be some berries of another color. Blueberries, perhaps? Too bad those were all eaten.

It was a cloudy day in New York and with everyone taking the train and subway to work at the same time this morning, it was pretty hectic. But nothing like a little nudity to keep a fast-paced morning feeling calm, cool, and collected. And by nudity I mean Naked juice. Sips of this Berry Blast smoothie are enough to make any bustling morning feel relaxing.
