Snow. Ice. 18 degrees and a wind chill of 1 degree!
Schools closed. Our office officially closed too!
It is a gift of time.
Smoothie time and the thoughts of the tropics came to mind as I gazed out the window at the snow.
I cracked open a Thai Coconut and put all the water and coconut meat into the blender, along with an amazingly ripe, sweet mango. Added to that, a half of an avocado, 1 stalk of celery, a handful of parsley, chia seeds, spirulina and several handfuls of kale.
Then, my new favorite ingredient: freshly grated ginger! Blend! Blend! Blend!
I topped it off with a sprinkle of some organic unsweetened shredded coconut and grated some fresh nutmeg on the top, and there you have it . . .
. . . a touch of the tropics in the middle of winter!
Now to enjoy the gift of this day!
