I can assure you that cookie week isn’t over, it’s just sort of postponed for a few hours because I came down with a surprise case of food poisoning. I won’t go into details because this is a food blog and we’re all friends but let’s just say that yesterday all I wanted was something that was healthy and light on my stomach. Enter: this smoothie.

I’m not the best at taking care of myself. If Josh isn’t around to make me a smoothie and coffee in the morning, then I usually don’t drink a smoothie. (I always figure out my coffee situation.) But I’m trying to get better. This is a big part of an initiative I like to call “being an adult.”

Outshine Fruit Bars sent me over some fruit bars and I was pleasantly surprised when I looked at the ingredient list. No weird stuff. Basically just grapefruit juice, but frozen, so I figured it’d be an easy, nice addition to my morning smoothie.

My normal smoothies in the morning look horrifying. Like the most unattractive green color you’ve ever seen. So, I decided to skip the spirulina and maca and acaî in this smoothie recipe, and just keep it sort of classic and simple.

The coconut water is nice and refreshing, while the banana gives it a good texture. I love adding oatmeal to smoothies–it adds a nice crunchiness that I’m really into. And the grapefruit has a nice zing flavor. It’ll perk you up in the morning.

I think this smoothie was a nice break between the cookie-filled meals I’ve been having. I feel pretty good about myself right about now.

    Gluten Free Cowboy Salsa is an appropriately named appetizer for all the men in the crowd who lives on a gluten free diet. I found out I had a gluten intolerance before I became pregnant with my second son.

    That sounds fantastic! I’ve also never thought about adding grapefruit to smoothies, which is silly because I love grapefruits! I think I’ll have to try this one this weekend!

    Recently I’ve been completely into smoothies and am always looking for new recipes to try (so far my favorites are apple pie smoothie and pumpkin pie smoothie). So you can bet I’ll be trying this tomorrow morning for sure!
