Tropical Pitaya Smoothie

2/16/18


So, I think I'm over winter now.  Yep, ready to move on.  Let's go, spring!  Show your face.  Oh, it's only mid-February, you say?  I need to be patient, you say?  STOP SAYING THINGS.  Let me vent about winter for a second.  Let me whine about grey skies and puffy jackets and unmatched mittens and dry skin and chapped lips and cooooold.  Ok thanks, I'm done whining.  I'll talk about food now...

Like this tasty and nutritious tropical smoothie that will make you feel like you're on a Hawaiian beach (sort of).  I've recently discovered frozen Pitaya (AKA dragon fruit) smoothie packets and they are delicious (I use this one).  They're subtly sweet and packed with nutrients.  The best part?  The smoothie possibilities are endless.  Actually no, that's not the best part.  The best part is they will turn your beverage into a punchy pink that no child can resist.  It's like drinking a unicorn!  

This particular recipe couldn't be easier.  In fact, you don't even need a recipe.  Just throw your favorite fruit into a blender, add something green (or not) and a liquid (almond milk, coconut water, juice, etc) and voila... the feeling of warmer weather in a glass.  Recipe below :)
