15 Smoothies in 15 Days, Day 14: Sunrise Smoothie

Well, it was my first day back at school today with an institute day, so I needed a quick smoothie to give me some energy. I wanted some bright flavors to kickstart the day. I feel like I’ve done a variation of this in the past, but it’s so good, it’s worth making a million times. Plus, it’s EASY!

15 Smoothies in 15 Days, Day 9: Berry Brain Blast Smoothie

This is an old favorite, and a lighter option for those days when you just want something refreshing, but don’t necessarily want all of the add-ins and calories of some of the heavier, creamier smoothies.

It’s called a “Brain Blast” smoothie because avocados (and berries!) are really great brain foods. All of those good fats in the avocados work to help your brain function at tip-top shape.

15 Smoothies in 15 Days, Day 7: Banana Berry Citrus Smoothie

I don’t know why, but I’m really digging the pink smoothies! They are just so pretty and bright and they really make me happy. Plus, I could eat strawberries all day, every day. Seriously. Give me 24/7 strawberries and I’ll be happy. I would almost not be surprised if this baby girl came out with red hair just because of all of the strawberries I’ve consumed.

This Banana Berry Citrus Smoothie is like a taste of summer, which is perfect for a warm, sunny, August day like today. In fact, I’m enjoying it whilst sitting on my patio in the sunshine, making it even more perfect. It’s really a simple variation on yesterday’s smoothies, but tastes oh so different.
