Good morning, sweet peeps and happy first day of summer!! We’re getting our green on today with two of my favourite warm weather foods, turn smoothie.
Who among us does not like a hot-pink, juicy slice of watermelon when it’s steaming hot out? And when it’s too hot to think of cooking, what spins in to save the day? Salad, of course! I particularly enjoy a big old bowl of baby spinach topped with fresh fruits and nuts.And if it tastes good in a bowl, why not through a straw?? Welcome to J-logic…
So on command, into my trusty little blender marched all the things – organic baby spinach, watermelon, mixed frozen berries, spirulina powder, mangosteen powder and a little passion fruit. Press button, cause a commotion, pour, top with chia seeds and enjoy!
Now, I love all things green – kale, asparagus, broccoli, artichoke, kiwi to name a few. For those who aren’t so fond of green food, the addition of watermelon and passion fruit will be pleasantly pleasing to your tastebuds.
A perfect start to Summer and Saturday!
