Never would I think of putting an avocado in a smoothie.
Martha Stewart didn’t just think it, she did it. Providing yet more proof that she is a goddess among mortals.
Her Avocado-Banana smoothie is similarly out of this world. And while I’m no culinary visionary, I at least have enough common sense to know that this one was a recipe worth sharing.
I love coconut water. I love it so much that I, no joke, looked into attaching myself to a coconut-water IV drip. Turns out it’s a thing (number 8 on this list), and all of a sudden I felt a lot less lonely in this world.
Then I remembered that in my many conversations about the electrolyte-rich thirst quencher, I found that a lot of people really don’t like the stuff, my boyfriend and brother included. I couldn’t believe it, although I do have a theory.* But before I bore you with conspiracies, let me just say that I hold a glimmer of hope that people can become coconut-water converts, and I’m crossing my fingers that smoothies like this one might do the trick.
I haven’t posted a Thirsty Thursday in a while now, so today’s post is me easing my way back into the swing of things. Read: super easy.
As I said earlier this week, I’ve been keeping warm by alternating between green tea lattes and hot chocolate, so it was only a matter of time before I decided to combine the two. You know, for efficency’s sake.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I don’t care for eggnog. It’s just. so. weird. Whipped eggs in spiced, sweet milk & cream? Ugh. And yet, it’s so quintessentially Christmas that I always feel a little bad that I don’t include it in my holiday-food routine. Well, guess what. Always is in for a surprise, because I’ve found an eggnog drink that works for me and it’s called eggnog white hot chocolate. Thirsty Thurday’s back with a vengeance.
Slow-cooker season is here! If you don’t already own a slow cooker, I suggest you add one to your Christmas list immediately. The empowerment I feel when I come home to the fragrant smell of a warm, ready-to-eat meal after a long day at work is a feeling that can’t be beat. So go get a slow cooker and christen it with this recipe for ridiculously easy Mexican chicken soup.
If you own a slow cooker, you’ve likely already made this, and you’ll understand why I needed to share it in the off-chance someone hasn’t. The 3,800+ outstanding All Recipes reviews on what’s better known as a recipe for “Chicken Taco Soup” should speak for themselves, but let me tell you about it anyway.
This isn’t the best picture I’ve taken, but don’t let that deter you from giving this white hot chocolate a try. The lesson here is some things aren’t meant to be photographed, just consumed. And even ugly pictures are worth sharing.
