Dear Fresh Readers,

The New Year has begun. Woo-hoo. And I’m feeling quite minty. In fact, I concocted a minty smoothie. I’ve been drinking it every day. Craving it. It satisfies my sweet craving, and it has lots of yummy ingredients. So, I thought to share with my fresh readers.

I guess you didn’t know that I like good food. I can’t be serious all the time. A girl needs to have fun and eat too!

THROW ME SOME MINT SMOOTHIE
(I guess you really can’t take the New Orleans out of me. Throw me something!!!)

2 Cups of Unsweetened Coconut Milk
1 TB of Agave
1 TB of Cacao Nibs
1 TB of Immortal Machine Superfood
1 TB of Goji Berries
2 Figs
2 Big Handfuls of Spinach
1 Big Handful of Mint
Lots of Ice

Throw in the blender and blend away dream baby.

It serves two in case you want to share with your lovey-dovey. I made it for Pierre and he said, “That is really good.” Lucas declared with a raised hand in the air, “I don’t do mint!” And Gabriel sipped it and replied, “Too much mint mom.” Well, I love it. And that is what counts!

It’s my blissful concoction made with some delicious superfoods. I tried it without the figs, goji berries, and immortal machine superfood… and it still rocks. Experiment and see what works for you. I like the cacao nibs because it gives a crunchy texture. But I’m sure the cacao powder works just as well. I accidentally grabbed Lucas’s lactose free milk out the refrigerator, thinking it was coconut milk. But I realized, it wasn’t an accident. It was an experiment. And a delicious one at best. Experiment and have fun in the kitchen.

Blare the music and dance. And if people are watching, dance anyway. They might just join you.

Refreshing,
Jennifer
