Remember how I was talking about my recent citrus addiction? Well, it’s not just hitting me in Flourless Lemon Cake form:
This Raspberry Citrus Smoothie is a pretty fair representation of my kitchen right now, and I don’t regret it for a moment. The mandarin oranges plus the sweet tang of the raspberries makes this a perfect spring breakfast….or lunch….or both. I drank 1-2 of these every day this week because every moment not at work was spent outside. I’m almost certain Sam is going to start complaining about the amount of blender food we’re eating soon, because his inner meat lover does not jive with all of my smoothie and sauce and guacamole loving self all the time. He rallies, but he’s not 100% on the I-drink-my-meals train, you know?
So this is more for me and you, the people who understand Spring means SUNSHINE and a Raspberry Citrus Smoothie and probably time outside < time inside cooking. You and I, we understand each other. You’re ok drinking a raspberry smoothie for 7 days in a row straight because a) DELICOUS and b) EASY and healthy to boot.
Cheers to spring vibes coming your way!
