July Smoothie Inspiration: Amelia Earhart

"Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn't be done." –AE

For women in aviation, Amelia Earhart paved the way by taking off and landing on it! Throughout her amazing life, there were many firsts…first woman to fly solo over the Atlantic Ocean…first woman to win the Gold Medal of the National Geographic Society. From 1930-1935 alone, she broke seven aviation speed and distance records.

Ultimately in the end, she lost radio contact and disappeared somewhere over the Pacific while attempting to fly around the world. Her death has always been shrouded in mystery and intrigue yet the fundamentals could not be clearer: she died going after her goals, doing what she loved most, challenging the status quo and stretching the minds of naysayers.

In order to properly honor her, we decided to create a smoothie that’s not easily forgotten, something that might even raise brows, beckoning us to exude confidence. Do we actually think we can put hot sauce into a smoothie, and it’s going to taste good? Yes, we do, and yes, it does! Give it a try, see what you think.
