Hello Monday.

Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was blah - most of it was spent in bed trying to get over a flu/sore throat/cold combo - not good. I have not bee sick in a long time. Plus, laying about not doing anything was surprising difficult for me - but I had to listen to my body and take some time to rest - not quite 100% but doing a whole lot better. As you ca guess, kitchen time was non existent except for recreating this smoothie which was the only thing I could keep down. 

Also with the temps in these parts clocking 100 degrees and above - it was helpful to have something cool and refreshing.  I  am obsessed with smoothies. I did a whole summer series of smoothie recipes over on the lifestyle blog last summer and I still refer to those recipes to get through hot summer days and/or get healthy eating habits back on track.  - This recipe is the perfect escape from the heat.
