OLLA smoothie

Only Lovers Left Alive… a vegan vampire berry smoothie

2018 is a year of seeking wellness. Doesn’t it feel like everybody is talking about wanting to live a healthier life? Of course, wellness is so important not only for this year but a lifestyle. Exercise regularly, relieve pressure from time to time, eat fresh organic foods, and always eat some fruits.

So here today I would like to share with you a lovely fruit smoothie we have almost 4 times a week. We are pretty addicted to it, it’s a little bit dark burgundy and my love likes to pretend it is the kind of drink of vampire would have, hence the name OLLA, Only Lovers Left Alive, after the Jim Jarmusch stylish vampire movie. Bloody pink but totally vegan-friendly! 🙂 It’s also very healthy and quickly made, it just takes 10 mins. So in the morning when we wanna enjoy a little bit sweetness from fruits, no doubt I will grab all the ingredients from the fridge, clean and rinse it, put them all in a blender and 45 seconds late, Voila! we enjoy it together!
