Raspberry Peanut Butter Surprize Smoothie


The days are counting down until my little baby girl arrives. Her furniture is assembled, her clothes are washed and her stuffed animals are patiently waiting to be squeezed and loved. I am waiting (not so patiently) to meet her, hold her and just stare at her little face.

At this point in pregnany it feels as if time starts to slow down. Every day feels longer than the last and the fact that any moment labor could begin is exciting and terrifying all at the same time. It’s also much harder to do yoga simply because my belly is in the way and movement in general is a bit more challenging. Walking however, has been a new healer of mine. I highly recommend it to women in their third trimester if your back allows it.

Walking is incredibly┬árelaxing. It’s a great time to pop on your favorite playlist, podcast or audio book and just go. Take new routes overtime to keep yourself inspired and stimulated and take your time, there’s no rush to get anywhere.

With all my walking, I’ve also picked up a habit of smoothie bowls after each walk to replenish on nutrients and to cool off my body. I came up with this Raspberry Peanut Butter Surprise yesterday and I know it will become a regular around my house for now on. It’s creamy, sweet and a bit salty and a great smoothie to pair with your favorite granola.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. ­čÖé
