I’m just dropping by for a quick hello today in the form of a smoothie. There’s a lot going on right now as our wedding is in two days (!!) and photographing a smoothie bowl isn’t really on top of my priorities, but I tend to take on even more tasks when I’m already super busy. But I somehow managed to make a really good smoothie that gives a lot of feel-good energy and I felt like sharing something before we take off to our honeymoon and forget about the internet and everything else for a while :)
I rarely share a smoothie recipes nowadays, as I feel we all have so many of them and I never take exact measurements, but maybe we have room for one more? It’s a good one, I promise! Frozen pomegranate seeds are my new love from the frozen foods aisle and lingonberries are in season now, so I decided to combine them two and add a couple superfoods too. I don’t use that many superfoods on a daily basis, but when life gets hectic I like to add a bit of boost from those powders to keep me going. Maca powder is my favorite, as well as ashwagandha lately, but I added camu camu powder to this smoothie, as it’s loaded with vitamin c and my body is craving for all the vitamin c (+sea!) it can get. But this one tastes wonderful without them too if you’re not into that sort of thing!
Enough of my babbling, now I need to go and get some dried flowers / buy a bunch of stuff / pack for our trip and get my bridechill mode on :) I’ll be back in a few weeks, talk to you then! Take care and eat well! xo
