I was even happier because it tasted so good. Healthy, velvety and not too heavy. I made a few changes to the recipe. I didn't have coconut water but I did have limes.
The recipe comes from a cookbook called Greens 24/7 by Jessica Nadel. I highly recommend you check out the review on Coconut and Berries with Emma's stunning photos to see some of the other tempting recipes in the book.
- Sylvia recently had a rock star dress up day at school. She was planning to go as Elsa from Frozen until the night before when I suddenly heard she was going as Katie Perry. As did most of her class. Fortunately she had her costume sorted.
- It seems she is not quite over Frozen as she was very happy to see the short movie before Cinderella yesterday. I loved how Elsa's dress became green. Elsa's blue dress has launched blue aisles in toy stores and department stores where usually they would just be pink. I sort of hope this dress might launch green aisles. Perhaps I am just being fanciful.
- E and I had dinner at a communal table in Lygon Street on Monday. We got talking to a guy who rode his bike to the cafe for dinner every Monday and then rode home again. He had another regular dinner spot and a regular coffee spot. Meanwhile we were in Lygon St to see Big Eyes, an interesting movie about feminism, art and family.
I am sending the green smoothie to Shaheen at Allotment to Kitchen for Eat You Greens event.
