This healthy, mint tea infused cherry smoothie is perfect for summertime sipping on the veranda. Hoop skirt optional.
When I drink this refreshing cherry smoothie I feel like Scarlett O’Hara in a fabulous hoop skirt lounging on the veranda of Tara without a care in the world. Men panting in every direction. For various reasons.
This is the beginning of the book, obviously.
In this fantasy, my greatest challenge is how to look cool in this intense, Georgian heat. But I have a secret weapon.
This mint tea infused cherry smoothie.
You know, we Southerners simply require tea but, oh my goodness, in this heat and humidity!?! Well, we just have to get a little bit creative with it, don’t we, darlin’?
In real life, in which I may or may not still be wearing a hoop skirt, this smoothie is my little gift to myself. AFTER the kids are off to school but BEFORE I start my busy day, I pile these five ingredients in a blender, pour it in a glass, add a metal straw and give myself a moment of slurpy silence.
You might want to call it “smoothie-fueled meditation.”
Or you might just want to call it “breakfast.”
I call it bliss. With a southern accent.
