The weather in Chicago has been absolutely bonkers lately. This past weekend it was snowing and then yesterday the temperature was up in the 60s. I'd like to the this indecisiveness means that spring is honest-to-goodness around the corner, but I know better than to think that Chicago will actually have a spring season. Every good Chicagoan knows we practically jump from winter to summer with maybe one 70 degree day thrown in for good measure.
Anyhoo, I am going to enjoy this warmer weather while it lasts. I made this smoothie a few weeks back, but it would be a nice little faux-spring treat. It could even stand in place of a breakfast if you wanted to get really crazy!
