Much like what my parents say about me, this smoothie was the best accident that ever happened. I was out of ingredients for my usual sweet tooth stopper, so i decided to just scavange around my house for whatever i could find. What ensued was possibly the second best thing i ever did by accident, (the first best thing was this one time, while i was trying to find the newest episode of Grey’s Anatomy, i accidentally clicked on “The Mindy Project,” and stumbled upon my Guru.) Actually, much like Mindy this smoothie is sweet, quirky, and dressed in a smokin shade of pink-purple. It also couldn’t care less about convention (the ingredients get weird.) Try reaching for this as a dessert option instead of that bowl of ice cream, and your system (and abs, actually,) will be singing your praises.
So without further ado, i present to you, dolls, the Mindy Kaling (Omg, celebrity named smoothies? I feel a theme coming on…)
The Mindy Kaling
Handful Frozen Strawberries
(BIG) Handful Frozen blueberries
Half a Banana
Pure 100 percent Pomegranite Juice
As much kale as your brave heart desires
Half a Cup Ceres- Litchee Pear Juice**- If you don’t know what this is, close the laptop you’re on right now and smack yourself over the head with it. This is the best line of juices ever to be created, as they never ever add sugar and its just fresh fruit purees and juices. No added anything. They are swoon-worthy alone, and UNREAL when artfully used in a smoothie.
**If you don’t have access to this, i would use fresh pear or maybe a pure mango juice. Something with a high natural sugar content.
Top with Unsalted Slivered Almonds for a little craving-smack-down protein kick.
Try not to pass out from the sugary perfection.
