So I bet the first thing you're wondering is, Lauren, what the heck? You're a teenage girl, where is all the pumpkin, apple, spice, coffee, fall leaves, and warm sweaters that the internet has been obsessing over since August 31st? Well I wanted to take a little break from that, because if someone else freaks out about fall, I honestly don't know what I would do. I need a little time to ease out of summer mode, before heading over to the "all so magical" fall land. Don't get me wrong, I love fall a lot, but seriously people, it's still like 80 degrees outside some days. Definitely not what I would call sweater weather if you ask me.
The ironic thing is though, once December comes around, I'm a complete Christmas fanatic. Like I'm that one really annoying person that just randomly bursts into Christmas carols at any moment. But you'll find that out about me soon enough (4 more months to go...) :)
Anyways, sorry for the rant, lets head over to smoothies...
I love kiwi, especially in smoothies. Raspberry is also one of my favorite fruits too, so I decided to combined the two. This recipe has raspberry yogurt along with orange juice, banana, and a few pieces of ice.
I really like this recipe because it's a really awesome healthy breakfast idea if you're on the go in the mornings. The fruit also looks really pretty when its all layered in the blender, which is a bonus.
So I hope this smoothie will make your mornings a little more bearable, especially with school starting and all that. I also apologize in advance, the measurements in this recipe are not exact because I kind of just threw it all in the blender:) but go with what your gut says, it's usually right.
