Purple Rain Smoothie

img_7513Purple Rain, Purple Rain… this song has been stuck in my head since last Friday (when I found myself dancing to it at 1:30am) Cue smoothie inspiration!

Sidenote: Does anyone actually know the other words in that song?

Happy Food Post, Friday! I always start Friday with the highest hopes of productivity. While that often tends to fade by lunchtime, each week I still dream big and this morning is no exception. Cheers to inspired breakfast (and to the weekend!)

I spent last night sending emails, connecting with some other bloggers, cleaning the new place, and packing us up for the weekend at the lake (which is surprisingly tiring with a dog), so I would say that my dreams of productivity have been achieved, right?!

I am extremely excited for this weekend, not only to get out to wakeboard and surf (and hopefully not take in half the lake through the face, again), get that summer glow that I have been searching for months for, but also for the *~* solar eclipse *~* on Monday! Who else is catching the hype for that? Alex and I will be headed downstate to get as close as possible, and we are hoping to get some cool pictures – so stay tuned!


As for this productivity helper, here is the recipe!

Purple Rain Smoothie

  • 1 banana68cc5625-6bf6-48a2-ae4c-f8f26b47d9d0
  • 1/4 mango
  • a large handful of mixed berries
    • Pictured is the frozen organic mixed berry blend from Trader Joe’s
  • 4-5 florets of cauliflower (I freeze mine for easy blending and extra chill)
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of vanilla greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk
  • 2 scoops of protein (I used Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides)
  • ½ cup of water (may not need all of it)

Blend together for a few minutes until you get the consistency desired, find a cute little mug or mason & get on your way to work, because you are probably late.

  1. I never meant to cause you any sorrow
    I never meant to cause you any pain
    I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
    I only wanted to see you
    Laughing in the purple rain
    Purple rain, purple rain
    Purple rain, purple rain
    Purple rain, purple rain
    I only wanted to see you
    Bathing in the purple rain
    I never wanted to be your weekend lover
    I only wanted to be some kind of friend
    Baby, I could never steal you from another
    It’s such a shame our friendship had to end
    Purple rain, purple rain
    Purple rain, purple rain
    Purple rain, purple rain
    I only wanted to see you
    Underneath the purple rain
    Honey, I know, I know
    I know times are changing
    It’s time we all reach out
    For something new, that means you too
    You say you want a leader
    But you can’t seem to make up your mind
    I think you better close it
    And let me guide you to the purple rain
    Purple rain, purple rain
    Purple rain, purple rain
    If you know what I’m singing about up here
    C’mon, raise your hand
    Purple rain, purple rain
    I only want to see you
    Only want to see you
    In the purple rain
