This post is dedicated to my bff who means the world to me, Jhiane. So here is the story. She has a date with a neurosurgeon (LUCKY GIRL) next Tuesday and she wants to lose weight last minute. Hey, before you start judging a woman's desire to look good for a man, she's going out with a "neurosurgeon", heck I would try and look hot too if I had the opportunity. Hopefully he's not boring and full of himself... some male doctors are! Jhiane does these weird diets every now and then, but I keep encouraging her to stay on track and just eat healthy and in moderation. She has been lucky enough to try one of my smoothies and by doing so she was inspired to purchase a Magic Bullet for herself. Jhiane was blown away by how quickly I whipped up a smoothie, literally under 5 minutes. My bff has now requested that I add more smoothie recipes on my blog to help her speed up her weight loss process. I'll do anything in the name of weight loss, dating, and love to see my girlfriend happy.
Jhiane, I know how you love strawberries, and I love bananas. Together this is the perfect friendship combo... Strawberry Banana Smoothie! How cheesy am I? This one's for you Mama!
