Raspberry Chia Cream Smoothie - a brightly flavored, satisfying and hydrating cream smoothie to power you through your day - use your favorite fresh fruit of the season!
some random thoughts in my head lately:
The "you catch more bees with honey..." sentiment really is true - I have had to assert myself several times lately, and I find the successful result is quick when I am calm yet persistent. And always nice.
The days I work at home, no errands to run, no reason to be out at all? GREAT hair day. When I have an important in person meeting, it looks like I just walked in from a tornado-cane.
What is probably the dirtiest, germ-iest place in a hospital? The dispenser you push for antibacterial gel.
I was looking at a list of art pieces hanging in the Hawaii house and Dad's house here. One piece is called "Diane Sloggett as Auntie Mame". Diane is my grandmother (I was named for her, my middle name being Diane) who died the day my parents found out I was a thing. Auntie Mame? Perhaps further proof I am my grandmothers reincarnation...
The super important phone call you have been waiting for after playing phone tag for a week? Comes in while you are on an equally important phone call that you cannot even put on hold.
My mood increases significantly when I am able to grab one of the small basket-carts at the grocery store. It really is the little things...
Lately I have been running indoors, upstairs on my treadmill. Now that the weather is simply beautiful, I went to grab my outdoor running shoes. There was a huge black spider in one! *shudder* Guess I shouldn't go so long between outdoor runs...
Working and re-working a recipe for weeks (um, like once a week for several weeks...) until you get it just perfect? Yeah, that's perfect.
Lemons. I cannot get enough lemons lately, I want to infuse that flavor into all the things. Like this smoothie. Lemon adds that brightness I love. I could drink these lemony sweet smoothies all day.

What a glorious smoothie, Kristina! So many chuckle-worthy and poignant points shared here. My hair always looks phenomenal right before I go to bed. No kidding! My hairdresser told me it's because the natural oils have come out/back hours after shampooing. Kind of crazy since my hair is a total disaster in the mornings with too much natural oil. 😉 Of course, you know that I love that expression "you catch more bees with honey." It can be challenging at times to carry that philosophy out though. Kudos to you!
Oh my! I made this with a couple of changes. soaked cashews, coconut milk, frozen berries. This was sooooooooo dreamy!! Oh my belly has been full and happy all day. It is way past lunch but I am still satisfied. It was like a raspberry shake!
This smoothie sounds great! I definitely need to experiment for with cashews in my smoothies. 🙂

There are not enough raspberries in the world for me these days. I love the lemon and casews in this too... it's making me think of a liquid berry-lemon bar.

I love lemons period. I'm that weirdo who bites into them like they were an orange wedge. And sometimes it really is the little things like the perfectly sized basket-cart.
Sounds so refreshing! I've never had lemon in a smoothie, but I love the sound of it. Can't wait for it to get warmer so I can drink smoothies all the time!
