I made this smoothie on a bright and sunny day that happened to be so cold that I was wearing pants, thick socks, a long sleeved shirt, a hoodie, a jacket, and a winter hat indoors. I threw all of the bright and delicious ingredients into my blender while imagining some place far warmer than where I was, parked my ass in front of a space heater, and had a mini mental tropical vacation.
The flavors were that good. Like, transcendent.
This recipe is a perfect one for grabbing immune boosting vitamins and minerals while remaining hydrated in the winter. It is full of probiotics, antioxidants, potassium, and Vitamin C. Plus, it tastes delicious.
