Berry Smoothie

in All Posts

Are you doing the Friday dance? I sure am.  So happy it’s nearly the WEEKEND!  Hoorah!


Because sleep is a hot commodity these days, I’ve started to sleep in as long as possible, which then leads to intense rushing around in the 45 minutes before I have to leave the house.  Case in point:  I stood outside (in the cold) in a towel and a winter coat to take my breakfast pictures (light is better outside), and then, while blowdrying my hair, I dunked my long strands into my smoothie.


Picture me behind the lens, with my towel slipping off for all the neighborhood to see my goodies.  Awesome.  I need a robe.  Or a brain.


Just PB toast and a wonderful smoothie.  In the blender:


Pineapple juice

Orange juice

Soy milk

Coconut water

Frozen raspberries

Frozen blueberries


So, now I’m clothed and working.  Friday success.


PS – A little shout-out to Melissa at U of Michigan – good luck on your finals! Smile

    I’m doing the Friday dance, but more because today’s my day off! Working a holiday retail job, so my weekends are very busy, but today I’m just hanging out, reading and writing blog posts, and planning to head to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s.

    Have a great weekend! That smoothie looks delicious!

    haha The things we do for the sake of our blogs…:)

    Your smoothie looks great! You’re inspiring me to pick up some pineapple juice this weekend.

    Mmmm that looks delicious! I’m totally doing the Friday dance today- it’s been a loooong week!

  • Christine @ BookishlyB December 16, 2011, 10:17 am

    Your smoothies sound so good this week! I think it’s because there aren’t any veggies in them 😉 I just can’t get over my “no drinking vegetables” quirk. I know, I know.

  • Annie @ Naturally Sweet Recipes December 16, 2011, 10:30 am

    That smoothie is gorgeous! And looks delicious. Happy Friday!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife December 16, 2011, 11:45 am

    oh WOW. That smoothie makes me want to bathe in a bath of berries!!!!

    Have a good day 🙂

  • Moni'sMeals December 16, 2011, 12:05 pm

    YUM on that smoothie! and Happy Friday my dear.

    I loved your pottery day yesterday, just took a look now. so fun!


  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin December 16, 2011, 12:09 pm

    Hah! I’ve gone outside to photograph my food in PJs before, but never a towel! You’re brave! 😉

  • katie @ KatieDid December 16, 2011, 12:11 pm

    brrrrr smoothies. I just can’t do them these days! But it sounds tasty, especially with a side of hair haha..

  • Cayce December 16, 2011, 12:11 pm

    Hey Caitlin…did Lovett find a home yet?

    • Caitlin December 16, 2011, 12:24 pm

      I don’t think so – you interested? 🙂

      • Cayce December 16, 2011, 1:33 pm

        I wish I could take him, but I’d have 3 very angry cats if I did. I do live in Nashville though so I was going to repost him to my FB page if he hadn’t found a home yet. You never know. Thanks for the update!

        • CaitlinHTP December 17, 2011, 9:35 am

          Aw thank you Cayce.

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb December 16, 2011, 12:15 pm

    ha. i have been sleeping too late in the mornings as well. am always rushing and yes, occasionally wet hair ends up in my oatmeal. whoops!

  • Megan Infantino December 16, 2011, 1:30 pm

    Haha! You crack me up. Is it the Pregnancy brain that’s doing it for you?

    Smoothie looks yummy by the way. Do you put ice in your smoothies? Just curious.

  • Yolie @ Practising Wellness December 16, 2011, 1:30 pm

    Hahaha! Classic. 😛 I can just picture it, lol! The breakfast looks delicious though! I love how vibrant the smoothie is – and that dunking, my friend, is why I always wear my hair in a ponytail! 😉 Happy Friday! xyx

    I really like the message on being your best for you RIGHT NOW. So often (with two little kids, a husband, my own business, etc.) life gets in the way of my best intentions. Sometimes I know I am not as good, fit or fast as I could be but I have to shake myself and realize that I’d trade 30 seconds per mile for those extra hours with my kids. Running longer distance takes A LOT of time and sometimes I have it and sometimes I dont. And (like you said) that’s okay!

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats December 16, 2011, 1:53 pm

    Haha I think a robe would be a good investment!!!

  • Khushboo December 16, 2011, 1:54 pm

    Going outside in a towel in December- you brave, brave woman!

  • Elisabeth December 16, 2011, 2:20 pm

    Not so much on the Friday excitement…I’m working (3rd shift) tonight. I guess I did have the last 2 days off, tho… 😉

  • Kelley December 16, 2011, 4:23 pm

    HAHAHA Apparently today was NOT the day to make a smoothie. lol I tripped and fell today and landed ON my smoothie. It was so sad. Smoothie EVERYWHERE!

    • CaitlinHTP December 17, 2011, 9:29 am

      OH NO!! Worst fear when carrying a smoothie.

  • Emily December 16, 2011, 4:30 pm

    That is a ridiculous amount of dedication to your blog!

  • Denise December 16, 2011, 5:21 pm

    The smoothie looks delish!!

  • Amy H. December 16, 2011, 8:15 pm

    I think the Husband should now have a *great* inspiration for what to get you for Christmas. Hee!

  • caronae December 16, 2011, 11:44 pm

    I would say that if you are “clothed and working” then Friday has definitely been a success. 🙂

  • Janna December 18, 2011, 8:31 pm

    Hahaha I can totally identify with this. Even though it’s winter, I can’t curb my morning green smoothie ritual. Sometimes I feel a little crazy walking outside carrying my two mugs full of frozen smoothies, only to encounter ice on my windshields.
