Screw humidity. Seriously. There is nothing I hate more than sticky, disgusting humidity. In the middle of summer when it’s hot as hell outside, add in that pesky humidity and what do you get? Bad hair and sweat coming out of every part of you. Literally. Thank God for living in a place where this isn’t a thing all year long. I don’t think I would be able to handle myself if I lived in a humidity all day every day kind of situation.

But wait Casey… I know how to cool you down on those hot summer days! How you ask?

MANGO SMOOTHIE!!!

Alright, I guess that works pretty well.

For anyone that doesn’t own a single serving blender… you must buy one. I think it is the most fantastic piece of kitchen equipment ┬áthat anyone can ever buy. When you just want to make a smoothie, a simple little smoothie, but you gotta’ lug out the giant blender, the one that when it’s out on the counter it takes up the whole damn thing, and it doesn’t fit properly in your cabinets. BOOM! Single serving blender appears! Small enough to store anywhere, and to keep out if you’re an avid smoothie maker like I am, it is seriously the best thing ever. I could go on forever about why everyone should get one of these. Not to mention it was cheap! 15 buckeroos.

There are a lot of ingredients in this smoothie, but I promise it’s worth it. Sweet and refreshing, packed with protein and vitamins. What else could you need on a sweltering hot summer day? When I’m going to the gym for a tough workout it really does me good for the walk to the gym. Oh, and also giving me enough fuel to power through my workouts without feeling hungry at all!
