I'm feeling so much better! Still slightly congested, but it was a brief ailment just as I predicted! Yesterday morning/early afternoon I still felt pretty crappy. I didn't eat a whole lot yesterday but I had ice cream for breakfast-it seemed so wrong but felt so right!
It's made from 1 frozen banana, 3 frozen strawberries, 4 chunks of frozen pineapple, and about 4 tbsp canned coconut milk.
I used Sun Harvest brand coconut milk, it contains guar gum so it was extra creamy, perfect for ice creams or thick smoothies!
Last night I made my boyfriend (who caught the same cold) and I a large batch of whole orange juice.
It's amazing how much tastier this is than regular orange juice, it's sweet, thick, and creamy. It contains just a bunch of oranges or tangerines and ice. My boyfriend finished his two cup serving, then asked for more a few hours later! I'm sure this contributed to our quick recoveries.
I came home today and ate a bowl of Larry & Luna's chocolate and hazelnut Bliss 'ice cream' for dinner. Then a frozen veggie burrito. I made a green smoothie for dessert in hopes of balancing things out a bit!
Mmmmm, I'm so in love with these smoothies. This one is my favorite combo so far: kale, celery, cucumber, parsley, and apple. I find that I prefer my green smoothies and veggies to be at room temperature instead of chilled. I think it's difficult for my body to process cold foods. Or cold anything. I don't much care for temperatures below 60 degrees, I'm lucky I live in LA!
I also want to give a shout out to my brother for buying me these fantastic mugs! I've been using them for everything, smoothies, ice creams, soups, juice, tea, etc. I love them!
