Sexy Smoothie Talk Series; Superfood Me.

Dark Cherry and Chocolate Chia Seed Superfood Smoothie

One of my very favorite things to do on this planet is to go into my kitchen with a degenerate top knot bun on my head and make smoothies. "Me" time in the kitchen with my Vitamix is seriously my ultimate stress reliever in life. My ex-boyfriends used to get so jelly of all the time I spent in there ignoring them for kale combinations, but whatevs.

Kale stuck around, they didn't.

I absolutely love to concoct nutritious superfood smoothies in the morning, refreshing all-fruit smoothies to take poolside, indulgently dreamy dessert smoothies after dinner, you name it. And you thought I had anorexic drinks at Starbucks down to a skinny little T? (reference: Forecast This; Anorexic Starbucks Drinks That Will Change Your Life.) Well my smoothies will literally change your life with an earth shattering bang.

And the coolest part about them? 99.9% of them are totally low cal.

The worst thing in the world is ordering an amazing smoothie at juice bar (or DIY-ing one from a recipe of one of your fav foodie bloggers), glugging down the entire thing faster than you could even shove a straw into it, and finding out that it calorically raped you. I find that so vulgarly offensive.

The last thing I want to do is effing inhale fat to my thighs without even taking a bite.

I protest 500 calorie plus smoothies and so should you. They're bullsh*t! There are tons of ways to make smoothies taste ridiculously amazing without having to drop a calorie grenade in the blender.

Here's a recipe of my own...and if you like it, I'll keep 'em coming...
