Earlier today on the radio I heard that we will be approaching 90 degrees this afternoon.
While the idea of 90 degree temperatures may send some of you running for cover, ready to amp up your AC and lather yourself in sunscreen, this little piece of news actually made my Wednesday. I’ll be delighted when temperatures actually hit 100 degrees.
Why? Because it means summer time, the smell of coconut, the end of 10K/10Q crazy season, Saturdays at the pool, extra sweaty long runs at 6am, and lots and lots of smoothies. I’m pretty sure I could happily live off of this Blueberry Colada smoothie all summer.
Place all ingredients in a blender and whirl it together until smooth and creamy.
You can choose to garnish it with some coconut flakes or additional blueberries, although the blueberries do sink right to the bottom.
Delicious and totally refreshing, leaving my fingers with the faintest smell of coconut extract on them, which makes getting through the 9-5 that much easier. I can pretend I’m at the beach when I’m actually in my little CPA world, practicing my ten key skills and calculating yields.
Thank goodness for an active imagination.
What are your favorite smoothie recipes? I am going to try adding spinach to this one just for the added veggie factor. Except for the tiny green specks it will leave in my teeth, I think it will go unnoticed.
