How is everyone’s guacamole hangover going? You know what they say… the best way to cure a hangover is to eat some guacamole in the shower. Or was that drink a beer in the shower? I can never remember. Perhaps do both to cover your bases. Tortilla chips in the shower are not recommended, however, as they tend to get soggy when mixed with water. You’re going to have to go at it with a spoon. NBD.
So, this weekend I made one of these:
And headed out here:
Where we were spoiled with a ridiculously delicious dinner by a visiting friend who happens to be a fantastic chef. Not too bad, right? I will totally share some more photos and the recipe for that Strawberry & Rhubarb Crumble with you later in the week. It’s serious. You are going to want to come back for that one.
Right now, I need something to get me back on track. This weekend was fun. I drank too much sangria. I ate a lot of carbs. I found gluten-free baguettes at a local bakery. All bets were off. I feel like I have a bit of a life hangover right now… so, we’re going to blend some stuff together and make things manageable. It’s going to be delicious. We are totally throwing in handfuls of healthy things like spinach and chia seeds. It’s that kind of smoothie. This might also help with your guacamole and margarita-fueled hangovers. Maybe don’t take that guacamole in the shower… maybe just make this instead. It’s totally up to you. No judgements.
Look at that cast of characters! This is going to be good. Are you looking at those beets funny? Don’t worry. I promise I’m not trying to kill you. They add a nice body to the smoothie and a subtle sweetness. We’re first going to roast them in the oven to get them nice and soft! My husband was extremely skeptical of those beets, but once I handed him his smoothie it was basically gone. Not to mention that color! Seductive. If you are of the vegan or paleo variety, you can totally swap out that yogurt for coconut milk!
Let’s totally beet up this Monday (puns, can’t stop). BAM! Wishing you a fantastic guacamole and tequila detox. Ooomph. Don’t worry… we’ve got this. xo

Your tags are cracking my isht up right now. And the smoothie looks amAHzing.
Thanks Emily! Is “Eating in the shower” totes not a normal tag? Weird. 😉
Eating in the Shower is the name of my blog so that tag is normal to me and how I found your site through google alerts! Nice recipe too,
Haha! That is an amazing name for a blog, Kate! I completely understand eating in the shower, as there are just not enough hours in the dang day. Real. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web! 🙂
Yummy! Although I don’t think you ever need to detox from guacamole. Tequila though, that’s another story.
HA! This is probably true, friend.
Gorgeous opening shot! LOVE LOVE it! Your photography is so gorgeous. I have to ask are you using your new lens for these photos? Also, what editing software are you using for your fonts? I have Lightroom so I didn’t want to purchase photoshop, but I purchased the photoshop elements and I can’t figure it out, so confusing! Anyway, this smoothie looks great and I can’t wait to give it a try. I actually made a beet juice a while back and used raw beets and tons of ginger, and you know what? I actually liked it. It took a couple of swigs to get use to the earthy beet flavor though. BTW, July sounds great for the photo shoot! I’m so terrible with emails! Have a great night! xoxo, Jackie
Thanks, lady-cat! These photos were totally taken with my new lens. I am in love. For editing I use a combo of lightroom and photoshop…depending on how lazy or intense I am feeling. I use photoshop to apply fonts. I haven’t used elements in a long time, so I am sure it has changed a bit, but I would be more than happy to help you figure it out a bit when we schedule our shoot. Ok. I am going to email you about that right now before I forget. xox
What a gorgeous smoothie! The beets give it the most incredible color!!
Thank you, Cate! The color of beets makes me want to do a happy dance!
this is a great recipe and the photography is amazing, very elegant. Here’s a smoothie recipe i have for mangoes, its all natural with no sugar too.
I think i’ll follow your recipe exactly, and make this for myself after my workout! Great idea! loved it.
