How’s your fridge looking these days? Overflowing with bright berries & fresh seasonal produce? Mine is packed to the brim.I mean seriously guys, when you have an obsession with buying all the fruit on sale from Peapod, finding room in the fridge becomes a real problem. Flavors just seem to dance around in my head all day and the next thing I know, I’ve got more than just a few grocery bags to unload.
So what’s a girl to do? Well, sometimes it’s just necessary to throw everything in a blender and enjoy a refreshing smoothie. Often, the random ingredients create the most delicious flavors. Case in point: this watermelon smoothie packed with cherries, berries & creamy almond milk.
Here’s a fun fact: When I was in college, I use to enjoy a smoothie or protein shake every single day. It consisted of me dumping seasonal fruits in the blender, along with protein powder and usually a few heaps of peanut butter. Obviously not much has changed; I’m still the same girl who enjoys gulping down thick smoothies with a spoon and drizzling PB on top.
Or errrmmm excuse me, a bowl. Because smoothie bowls are the latest and greatest. Duh, Monique. It’s 2016.
I’m pretty confident you guys are going to LOVE this smoothie. Watermelon lends such a refreshing finish and the berries pump the smoothie with all the antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber you could dream of. Chaaaa ching, you win at breakfast.
Also, no judging if you want to throw in a shot of tequila.
What? I’m just saying… it could be really, really good. Of course, you might want to wait until the weekend, or just any time after 5pm.
Alright, I’m off to see what else I can make from that crazy fridge of mine. Make sure to check out more recipes on Peapod’s site FromThePod.com!
