Smoothie Yumminess

I thought I would take a different spin on beauty products and share the recipe for a smoothie I made today. A lot of people think beauty is all about what we see on the surface, and even go as far as to say make-up is the only answer to looking and feeling pretty. The truth is, the food we eat plays a huge role in our appearance. I’m all about enjoying life and trying out different types of food, especially when traveling, but we must never forget to load up on fruits and veggies.

You know that feeling you get after over-indulging in a chocolate cake? It makes you feel like a million bucks while you’re eating it, but you then just feel ‘bleh’. Trust me, I love a good chocolate cake, but this treat is absolutely guilt-free. This is a super easy smoothie that not only tastes good, but will make you feel great.

After thoroughly washing the strawberries and blueberries, throw all the ingredients in your blender. (If you’re shopping around for a good blender, I highly recommend a Ninja. It’s amazing!!!) Get it to your desired texture and voilà – yummy goodness!
