It's safe to say that Kendall and I are obsessed with our blender. Every few weeks we go down to Superstition Ranch Market to buy fresh fruits and veggies so that every morning we can make a new kind of smoothie to delight our taste buds. Usually they turn out green because Kendall thinks spinach will make me healthier, but sometimes I'm able to convince him to make my smoothie an acceptable color, like today.
Today, my smoothie was pink.
Brittany & Kendall's Raspberry Lemonade Smoothie
2 cups lemonade
2 1/2 cups ice
1/2 pint raspberries
3 drops natural vanilla extract
First, blend together lemonade and ice. I used Simply Lemonade because it is the closest to freshly squeezed lemonade as you are going to get...besides freshly squeezed lemonade...which you could do too...moving on. Then blend in raspberries and vanilla (if you want a sweeter flavor). We like ours pretty lemony, so if you want yours more raspberry-y, add another half pint of raspberries. Pour into mason jars, add straws, and viola! Delicious, natural raspberry lemonade!
Smoothies, to me, are a good way to be healthy without actually committing to being healthy. I still feel like I'm cheating and having a treat, even though I'm really having fresh fruits and water. Win win!
