 It’s been cold and damp outside  for a long time now.

Our backyard is in a perpetual state of wetness. The earth is cold and crumbly. The rain stopped a while back, but the mud just hasn’t recovered.

I’m painfully aware of the state of my backyard because I have a puppy and a white carpet.

Perhaps it was after this morning’s shenanigans where my muddy dog came tearing past me into the house, running laps and dodging my attempted side tackles, leaving a trail of her dirty feet like a horrifying dance-step diagram, that I really started longing for warmer and drier days.  She is currently on time out. She seems pleased with herself as usual.

It was at 8:30 this morning, on my hands and knees, cleaning up a trail of muddy paw prints, I started fantasizing about luxuriating out in the sunshine and sipping on mojitos and  piña coladas.

Don’t worry, this story does not take a weirdly uncomfortable and depressing turn. There was no early morning  solo drinking (However, if you are on a beach somewhere ordering booze for breakfast, can you please have some for me? Thank you.). I created you a healthy smoothie that mimics some of the tropical flavors of my favorite vacation drinks. There is lime and plenty of coconut flavor with some sweetness from a nicely frozen banana. I made it green because who are we kidding, we could all use more greens in our diet. A smoothie is a sneaky way of putting a couple of cups of spinach in your body without realizing it.  Hooray!

I hope you enjoy this hydrating and refreshing powerhouse!  I also hope that you are not chasing a wild-eyed, muddy-pawed animal around your carpeted living room. It’s rough. Don’t worry though, this smoothie will help. xo
