Summer Afternoon Smoothie

i have been into smoothies these days and i think a lot of it has to do with it being summer! smoothies can be a lot of things, filling, tasty, healthy, but one of my favorites is refreshing. a breakfast smoothie is perfect for when you are rushing out the door in the morning but an afternoon smoothie is just that – refreshing.

i came home from work last week and needed a breather. i whipped up this afternoon smoothie in less than 10 minutes and took it out to my back porch. i thought about trying to also answer blog emails or even bring a book, but i just sat in the sun and sipped on my smoothie.

  • I always have a breakfast smoothie alongside my coffee, but definitely have days where I am maybe eating only smoothies…

    Also, cute glasses! Look just like these ones at a coffee shop I recently discovered: http://deutsch-bitte.net/2014/05/26/berlin-giro-coffee-bar/

  • This sounds lovely, it would make a great adult smoothie maybe with a good quality gin :- )

  • You are reading my mind with this smoothie recipe! Sometimes you do just need a little time to unwind and relax with a little refreshing drink and alone time.

  • This looks so tasty! Adding a splash of coconut rum and pineapple juice would make this the best little adult smoothie 🙂

  • OMG! they totally are! I got mine in Norway at a coffee shop! (http://larsenhamar.no/) They look super similar in style! I love that!

  • Yum!!! I love smoothies and have been drinking them at different times.

  • This looks so refreshing! I will definitely be picking up these exact ingredients on my next trip to the grocery store!

  • Yummmmm! This sounds like the perfect summer drink. I would definitely want this in the afternoon when it's the hottest out.

  • How funny! I will have to ask next time I am there where they came from.

  • yummy! this one looks delish, too!
