Now there's one good thing about Monday mornings, at least.
It was impossible, this weekend, to believe it was really still March. We had several gorgeous days that felt like they belonged in May or June, and I was the happiest girl on the planet. True to form, I took the warm weather as an opportunity to buy some fresh fruit and whip up a healthy, delicious breakfast smoothie.
It's hard to believe that we were skiing last weekend! I'm so looking forward to spring and summer this year -- I know I am a broken record on this blog about how much I love warm weather, but this weekend just shows how much happier our whole city is when it's finally warm and sunny out. (Finally!)
This smoothie has no added sugar and is a perfect, vitamin-packed breakfast. If every weekend could end with one of these, I'd have a lot more to look forward to on Mondays!
Mango Strawberry Smoothie Recipe
8-10 large strawberries, plus additional for garnishing
6 ounces vanilla yogurt
Wash fruit and peel the mango from its shell. Cut away the green parts of the strawberries. Puree the fruit together in a food processor or blender, then and the yogurt and pulse until blended. Serve cold, with a strawberry garnish.
