Spring has arrived, but I’m already dreaming of long, warm summer days. Although, the only time I’m not dreaming of summer is when it has arrived. Or when it snows. (Hellooo I’m a Vancouverite, it hardly ever snows here! So exciting when it does!)
Summer will arrive in due time, and until then I will exercise patience (a challenge) and drink this summery smoothie (a pleasure!).
This recipe is pretty dang healthy as is, but if I’m totally honest, I usually add wheat grass powder. It’s weird for me when I drink a smoothie that doesn’t have a touch of earthiness to it. So if you’re in the mood for something green, add some wheat grass powder or spinach leaves.
Valencia, Navel, or Cara Cara oranges work great for this recipe. However, most oranges should do the trick.

Keep on sippin’ this sunshine and eventually the real thing will arrive! (I’m not saying there’s a correlation. It’s just a delicious smoothie. And statistically speaking, it’s bound to get sunny eventually.)
