As a blogger, I take a million pictures with my phone throughout the day. It’s one of the ways I try to spark content ideas. Sort of like journaling, but with pictures. My random pics throughout the day help me cure blogger’s block later when I can write. So yes, I’m one of those jerks in the restaurant taking pictures of my food.
Most days I scroll through and delete half of my “ideas” by the end of the day, but thank goodness for you, I saved the gem in this post.
A few days ago, I decided to make myself a smoothie for breakfast. Mmmmm….
I was in full blogger mode as I organized the ingredients for a quick pic of what I knew was going to be the next Pinterest sensation. You just never know, I tell myself.
I don’t know about you, but I love smoothies. Once I learned that I could put spinach in a smoothie and said smoothie would still be delicious, I was hooked on the idea of them.
So, I began throwing some things together and thought, Perfect!
But, you see sometimes my blog post ideas suck and it didn’t take long for me to see that this was one of those times.
I started laughing as my all star recipe recipe was being pureed into a black mess. It turns out I can make the ugliest smoothie you’ve ever seen.
Now that’s blogworthy.
My smoothie looks disgusting, may never be pinned, and makes you want to run and hide from smoothies everywhere.
Only I could create a smoothie like that!
Don’t be scared. It was actually quite delicious!
The Ugliest Smoothie
1 cup almond milk
3/4 cup frozen blueberries
handful of spinach
2 tablespoons flax seed
Blend, close your eyes, and enjoy!
Tonya at Letters from Lucas shared her post, Smoothie Love a couple of weeks ago. I thought about her pink strawberry beauty as I drank my swamp juice and chuckled at the idea of sharing this story with all of you.
