Let’s just close out eyes and pretend we’re sitting under an orange tree. An orange tree heavy with fruit… but with the occasional late blooming blossom. There are honey bees too. Just a few. The friendly kind. The kind of honeybees that remind you that life is full of creatures big and small… and we all have tasks to do.
Let’s just hang out under our orange tree for a while. Right here in the shade, greeted by little spots of sun as the wind spreads the leaves.
It’s nice here.
Sweet. Thanks. I’m glad you’re here.
Simple. Big. Bright. Tangy. A game changer, taking your day from overcast to bright and shiny with just a sip.
Thank you to Tracy and Sunset Magazine for the inspiration.
Super Citrus Smoothie
adapted from Sunset Magazine
Here’s what you’ll need for one big smoothie:
2 Tablespoons Meyer lemon juice
the juice of 1/2 a grapefruit (save the other half for tomorrow’s smoothie?)
1/2 cup fresh orange or tangerine juice
2 tablespoons honey
heaping 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 frozen banana (they blend better when frozen)
1/2 cup ice cubes
In a blender, combine juices, yogurt, and honey. Blend for a few seconds. Add the ice cubes and blend until smooth. This recipe makes one giant smoothie. Yumtown.
