Shut Up And Smoothie: C-Blast Smoothie (aka Strawberry Julius)
Happy Shut Up and Smoothie day, you sexy beasts.
Not to be a total cliché, but the holidays really snuck up on me this year, and I’m freaking out just the teeniest bit. My book manuscript is due in T-26 days (insert endless string of profanities), I don’t have the faintest clue what to get my parents for Christmas (insert more profanities), and I haven’t been able to watch Elf or Love Actually yet (that one deserves an actual “fuck”). I also feel a cold coming on.
In short, OUR PETS’ HEADS ARE FALLING OFF.
Anyone else feeling a little holiday stress? (Anyone? Bueller?) If so, remember: you are not alone. (I am here with youuuu.) December is hands down the craziest month of the year, and God knows our bods need a little extra TLC to keep up. I’m all for giant bowls of kale and pots of chicken soup, but for a quick pick-me-up, this vegan C-Blast Smoothie has become my winter go-to. It’s bursting with vitamin C, and I can wholeheartedly vouch for both its cold/flu fighting powers and hangover reducing capabilities. Plus, it tastes like an old school Strawberry Julius, which is obviously bomb. Childhood nostalgia for everyone!
