Another night of good sleep – almonds are 2 for 2!! I really have found myself on the verge of hunger as I read in bed at night. It’s so inconvenient to get up and eat a mini meal – I don’t have an appetite for most things. But the almonds are easy to munch (and I don’t worry about sugar on my teeth…although I’m a bit concerned with all the post-tooth-brushing-and-flossing night nibbling…hope it doesn’t last long).
We’re departing on our trip shortly, so Matt is home and made smoothies for breakfast.
The base was an unmeasured generous scooping of frozen berries, milk, raw oatmeal and ice. And the top was made with coconut butter magic shell! [Check out my coconut butter page for more info.] I picked up a jar of Artisana recently (the best) after a very unsuccessful attempt to make my own from unsweetened dry coconut. $11 is a lot, but not when it lasts for months!
It’s best in the summer when it’s naturally drippy at room temp. Just drizzle it on a cold smoothie in a bowl and you have yourself a hardened coconut shell!
Use your spoon to break it into bite-sizes chunks
And crunch that smoothie away : )
Have a great weekend!!
