raspberry mango smoothie.

Now that I’m working from home I get to make lunch and snacks out of my kitchen every day, which is a lot of fun.

Sometimes I find a plain old apple or a handful of almonds to be too boring as snacks, so to jazz things up I’ve started to make mini low-cal smoothies as mid-afternoon treats.

I am in looooove with my Blendtec blender and highly recommend it to anyone looking to invest in a high-quality blender.

Yeah, it’s expensive, but I have used it practically every day of my life since I received it in 2009.

This raspberry mango smoothie is super delicious and will totally satisfy any mid-afternoon frozen/creamy/sweet craving you have.

And best of all, it’s HOT PINK!

  1. Beautiful color! And it sounds so, so delicious. Oh how much I miss working from home! There was nothing like being able to cook/bake in the middle of the day (with natural sunlight, of course!)

  2. I have blender envy! The smoothie looks wonderful and super healthy!
