Thanks to the Internet, it seems that “hating Mondays” has become a thing. As much as I love the calmness of the weekend (especially Sunday), I certainly don’t mind Monday. For me, it’s a fresh start. It’s a good reason to put my worries and the shortcomings of the past week behind me and start anew. There’s something about a clean slate that’s highly motivating for me. So, bring on your worst, Monday. I’m ready for you!

Today I’m just popping in to share a fun and tasty post I recently created for my friends over at Shari’s Berries. With January’s focus on fitness and healthful living, I had this idea to create a nutritious smoothie post for them this month. However, it quickly turned into something just a bit more decadent: a Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie.

It’s not all bad though. I guess it falls somewhere between healthy and indulgent. The perfect mix if you ask me. Everything in moderation, right?

Anyway, what makes this a Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie is that shortcake pieces are actually blended into the smoothie to give you the warm cake-y flavor that you love in strawberry shortcake. Some whipped cream and more shortcake crumbles on top help too. Say what!? Yes, this is happening.

So if you hate Mondays (or just want a treat without all of the guilt), pull out the blender, swirl up one of these smoothies, and treat yo’ self! You can find the full recipe here.

Have a great week!
