I typically prefer chewing my food instead of drinking it, so I don’t actually make smoothies all that often. But for some reason, I really felt like having one a few days ago after my run. A few failed flavor combination attempts later (I was over complicating it, throwing too much stuff into the blender), I made this one.

It was simple, awesome and kind of tasted like it should have some alcohol and one of those tiny umbrellas in it… Not bad for a healthy post exercise smoothie, right?
