Adventures in Smoothies: Cherry Smoothie on Instagram

And we continue on our smoothie adventure. See our earlier post on how we are putting together make ahead smoothies and freezing them to eat for breakfast throughout the week. We made this smoothie one weekend where we didn’t think to break out the camera (those who know Matt know how rare that is!) so you get the Instagram version taken by yours truly! While this one is a green smoothie with a good handful of spinach added, the dark red of the cherry covers up the color. This one might be a bit more palatable for anyone hesitant to jump on the green smoothie bandwagon,

I actually set up my Instagram account for a personal project I wanted to take on this year. I call it my Thankful For project or TF. Each day I try to take a picture and document something that I’m thankful for. I’m a bit of a grumpy person so I’m hoping this might help me to put things in a better perspective. So far I think I’ve done a good job of thinking of something every day and I’ve gotten a few good pictures out of it! (And a lot of just ok pictures ☺)
