KEYLIME PIE SMOOTHIE

Hello lovelies! It's been a while since I've showed my face over here. Life just got too hectic after I returned from Finland and I think since then I've had a total of 2 days off. I've also joined a gym and actually going there regularly (I only do classes, not a fan of gyms), bought a cute bicycle from Craigslist for $35 and riding it all around our island. Love this lifestyle.

I am determined to write more blog posts, but you can also see me posting lots of photos on Instagram, yapping away on Facebook, as well as doing a Periscope challenge(Soon!Follow katloveskale). So please tune in to my other medias for daily musings.

Since St. Patrick's Day just passed I'm in a mood for all things green. Today I had green juice called Ensalada from Urban Remedy and enjoyed it by the waterfront near Ferry Building here in San Francisco. It was such a beautiful day so I wasn't rushing anywhere. Well, ok, I was at first. I had made an appointment to get an ombre hair color at a large hair stylist institute, but work meeting I attended just before was longer than expected and I was 2 minutes past the 10 minute grace period they allow you to be late. 2 mins! So they cancelled my appointment. How gracious. To be honest I didn't really care because the thought of sitting there for 5 hours getting my hair done sounded horrifically long on a sunny day like this. So I just walked out happy and started walking.

Ok, back to the greens. I cannot remember where I saw this recipe but since I love keylime pie I knew I had to make this smoothie. 

Keylime Pie Smoothie

Ingredients :

1 ripe avocado 
¼ cup raw cashews 
2 dates, pitted 
1 handful of spinach
¼ tsp vanilla extract 
¼ tsp chopped pecans 
2 limes, juiced 
½ lime, zest 
1 cup almond milk
pinch of salt (himalayan or sea salt)

Mix everything together in a blender until smooth and enjoy with a smile on your face. It'll be even better if you soak your cashews, pecans and dates for a couple of hours so they soften. But if not, no biggie.
