I’ve been in such a weird food rut lately, which isn’t very typical for me and I’m starting to feel it. At the moment I’ve basically been opting for some variation of avocado toast (generally on naan bread) as often as seems reasonable, because I’m just so bored with everything else. I love to cook, but behind the scenes I’ve been juggling a lot of huge projects (that I really really hope I can share with you in the coming weeks) so I’ve been eating on the fly more often. Frankly, I usually devote most of the food prep time to making meals for Em and then I just grab whatever is handy. This week I am planning to stock up on a bunch of fruit, frozen and fresh, so I can start working more smoothies into the routine. I’ve always loved smoothies and when I have fruit prepped in advance I love that they’re easy and quick to make, offer up loads of flavor combinations and don’t require me to actually cook or heat up the kitchen in the summer. Bonus! Little Em has made it clear that she loves smoothies, so I am looking at tropical smoothies and fun little smoothie bowls to keep us both getting our fruit fix throughout the summer months. To get us started and to help you kick up your routine, too, here are 12 super summery smoothie recipes!
