Can you believe that Valentine’s week is upon us?
I don’t know whether to be excited, because hello chocolate or panicked at how fast this year is whizzing by us! I will be running errands like a mad mama this week prepping for all of the V-day festivities our family has going on. That means I’m going to have to get creative with my scheduling and really organize my time if I am going to get every thing done.
A girl still has to eat though right?! During crazy hectic times like this I like to indulge in liquid lunches. No alcohol here folks, just a super delish pomegranate and mandarin smoothie with lots of vitamins and electrolytes to keep me going strong all day no fork required!
- 2 cups frozen pomegranate arils, see note
- 2 cups mandarin oranges, if using frozen let thaw for 2-3 minutes
- 1 banana, sliced
- juice of 1 lime
- ½ cup coconut water
- ½ cup ice
- Combine all of the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until completely smooth.
