Kiwi Pineapple Turmeric Smoothie with Fresh Mint

Kiwi Pineapple Turmeric Smoothie with Fresh Mint is the perfect way to start your morning! Five ingredients is all that stands between you and a tropical breeze!

Not sure what to do.

On Thursday we leave for New York City.

This will be the first time Mr. B and I will both be away from Juniper. I’m kind of freaking out. Never thought I would be that person who would get worked up over leaving a dog at home. Is this foreshadowing what will happen when we have a child? I’m so screwed.

Anyway, since she is still getting over pneumonia and doesn’t have all of her shots yet, we have decided to bring in a dog sitter. Have you ever done this? I know she will be in good hands, but it’s kind of weird leaving your baby with a stranger, right?

The funny thing is Juniper is so freaking smart. We are deep in potty training and she has recently discovered “fake peeing” to get a treat. I love that she is so smart, but the sitter is in for a big surprise. Hopefully everything will go smoothly. We are only gone for three nights so fingers crossed! But seriously, if you have any thing I should know before we leave to prep let me know!

Alright, on with today’s recipe! We have been doing a lot of morning smoothies around the house for simplicity as well as convenience. Mr. B and I have been sticking to either Blueberry Banana or Berry Ginger variety until recently when I whipped up this Kiwi Pineapple Turmeric Smoothie with Fresh Mint.

It’s like a tropical breeze in the morning! Speaking of tropical breeze, I really need a vacation. Or just freaking warmer weather in general! Sighhhhhhhhh. Maybe that’s why this smoothie came to fruition? Just blend kiwi, pineapple, honey, turmeric, and ice in a blender. BOOM! Tropical paradise in 30 seconds.

Maybe I should leave one for the sitter?
