Carribbean Sunset Smoothie

Today was my day off and I celebrated with a much needed mani-pedi and by breaking out the blender!

Now the closest I’ve ever come to the Carribbean is sitting on my couch watching Johnny Depp and Kiera Knightley, so I’m not sure if this smoothie tastes anything like a Carribbean sunset looks. The OPI color I put on my nails is called Carribbean Sunset so it just felt right.

Summer nails for a summer smoothie!

Ignore my freaky fingers!

I used CytoSport Vanilla Whey Protein powder. I had to throw in a few more berries after tasting it first because the vanilla was a little over-powering. Normally I’d add chia seeds or flax seeds but I didn’t have any on hand!

Ta-da! So much delicious and nutritious beauty in one little picture, who knew it was possible.
