Nine Healthy Smoothie Recipes |

So, it’s officially 2015. Time sure does fly, doesn’t it? In any case, happy new year!

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I have done absolutely nothing for the past 2 weeks–not a dang thing. Except eat. I ate everything!

You know what else? I fell asleep at 10:30 on New Year’s Eve. We sure know how to rock an epic party…in bed.

You’ll have to excuse me if I seem a little rusty my first week back in action. Two weeks off sounds like a dream come true (and it was), but it made me extra lazy and forgetful. I almost forgot my login information for the site. I’m struggling to properly punctuate a sentence. Truth: It took me a few hours to compile this post. I basically had to re-learn the ins and outs of Photoshop (what a chore).

I spent my time off celebrating friends, family, and an abundance of good food and five dollar bubbly.
Yeah, about the bubbly. I stumbled upon a few cases Once Upon a Vine Enchanted Woods Bubbly at my local liquor store for $4.99. I’m now a firm believer in cheap wine. If you ever happen upon Once Upon a Vine, get your paws on all the bottles! It’s crisp, fruity, and goes down smooth…maybe a little too smooth.

Confession: I ate my way through festive cookies, cheesy dips, creamy fudge, and guzzled my fair share of homemade eggnog (the boozy version). I’m not going to lie, it felt amazing.

I slept in. I ate. I slept some more. I ate some more. It was an endless cycle of eat and sleep. Now I’m ready to conquer the world a few pounds heavier.

Cue the smoothies…

    Sounds like you had a very restful (and delicious) time off! I also went to bed waaay before midnight on NYE…does it count that I was actually back up at midnight to feed my baby? I can’t say I need to get back on track with my eating, but these smoothes ARE the perfect, quick meal seeing as I have very little time to eat these days. These all look yummy!!

    Of course I want the chocolate peanut butter shake! At least it’s the skinny version :)

    We did pretty much the same thing, other than the fact my office didn’t close for the holidays. But the hubs was so happy doing nothing and bugging me all day long. These smoothie recipes are da bomb and I totally love that peanut butter choco banana shakes. Who can say no to that?

    Oh I’m right there with you. I’m so thankful for the Mac remember username/password functionality, and drafting a post? That’s a whole ‘nother story! :lol:

    At least with all these smoothies you’d have the energy and brain function to actually get back into the jive. They’re all gorgeous.

    haha I felt the same way after just taking a few days off! I couldn’t remember my login for an ad network and just stared at the screen forever! And the putting together my first post after the break took forever!

    Great round-up – I’m on a smoothie kick like no other at the moment!

    What a fantastic list of smoothies! Thanks for including mine. :) I definitely need to make some of these–I ate too much over the holidays too!


Leave some love. It makes me happy!
