Hi Sassy Peeps!
I love a tasty smoothie, especially during the summer! It is so hot in South Florida that anything nice and cool is always an EXTRA bonus. When I moved here 6 years ago I found myself spending a lot of time at different local smoothie shops, until one day I decided to learn how to make my own. I know, I know, me saying learn how to make a smoothie is probably hilarious to you guys, but if you know me, you know that I don’t really prepare or cook anything. However, I figured preparing a fun and flavorful smoothie is not rocket science and guess what, I was right! Now that I have done it several times I feel like an expert when it comes to the art of smoothie making! Yep, I got this!
I have tried making several different kinds, but my faves are always when I add chunks of different fruits, blend them, pour them and then add several garnishes. Although, the ingredient that always gives them that extra fizzy SOMETHING is fruit-flavored Sparkling Ice ZERO calorie drinks.
I not only love the way they taste but I love that they have 15 flavors to choose from and they are ZERO calories! Which is a great way to stay fit even after summer ends. Another thing that I love about this fruity water is that you can purchase them on Amazon Prime. Which I find to be pretty cool!
