Smoothie // Raspberries, Peaches, Fig, & Banana
I can't tell you how excited I am that it's Friday! It has been a world-wind of a week... I started the week off on the west coast for the 2nd week in a row, then my travel plans for work changed tenfold, really knocking me off-balance. Everything that could go wrong, did, and sleep was something of an afterthought. But here I am, back in NY, and ready for the weekend. Originally I wasn't scheduled to be back until Saturday afternoon, so all in all, the craziness worked out for the better.
I still owe you this weeks pumpkin recipe, but unfortunately that will have to wait until the weekend. I rushed home last night hoping to be able to make Pumpkin Chicken Tacos (which I did) but the sun was a little faster than me and by the time I was finished, so was daylight. Nevertheless round two will be this weekend and I will have a special edition "Weekend Post" so stay tuned...
I do however have a lovely smoothie recipe to share with you today! Giving you a strong finish for the week and helping you get a nice jumpstart on the weekend. The great thing about a smoothie is that you can still continue to enjoy many of your favorite summer fruits, well into Fall as frozen is the best way to get the perfect consistency.
