Strawberry Acai Refresher Smoothie

It was late afternoon. Stuffy in my workspace. The sun had been beaming through my window – a dry heat – all afternoon long. I wasn’t hungry. I wasn’t thirsty. But I was craving some refreshment. Maybe I just need some fresh air? Nope. Maybe a stroll? Then suddenly it hit me. A smoothie! I had not made a smoothie in a good few weeks (crazy for me, right?) So I tossed some of my faves in the blender and sipped and slurped down that tall frosty smoothie. Yup, just what I was craving! Maybe it is what you are craving too. Try my antioxidant-rich Strawberry Acai Refresher Smoothie. And don’t worry, if you don’t have acai – you can easily sub with blueberries…
