Somewhere in all of this, I've lost the urge to eat breakfast. Most mornings, I'd much rather sleep, run and/or shower in the cool, fleeting morning hours than take the time to prepare something, then sit and eat it. And by the time I've dealt with my morning list and fed and prepped everyone else, there is rarely time for that anyway. So my smoothie streak continues! And I've been really loving it.
I'm still following and super inspired by this raw vegan Australian Instagrammer and have been totally tantalized by all of her fruity breakfast creations, such as this lovely little number...

SMJ Summer Smoothie
Makes a quart-sized smoothie which, in my case, serves 1*
2 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
1 cup frozen organic strawberries
1 cup coconut water
2 mint leaves, roughly torn
1) Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. If you are going to make this last the morning, add a few ice cubes after blending.
*I've found that the key to making a smoothie breakfast last me the whole busy morning is to make a really massive one. A quart or more of fruit is an incredible way to start the day! I take this breakfast from the kitchen, to the shower, to the car...
To chasing dudes on to the baseball diamond.
It's a watermelon winner.
