Raise your hand if spring break is not going as you had planned... everyone, ok, that's what I thought. I was talking to my Grandma (on the phone), and she said, “in all my 80 years of life, I have never experienced anything like what is happening now.” The world has stopped. Flights have been canceled, schools are online, restaurants are closed, beaches and parks are closed and the Kennedy Expressway is WIDE open (I promise, that NEVER happens!) I found myself looking through an endless stream of photos from spring breaks of the past and checking the weather hour by hour for some kind of sign that spring was going to join us when it hit me. What are the flavors of “spring break?” Why can’t I at least recreate one of the 5 senses of Spring Break? Is it, fresh pineapple by the beach? Or coconut water straight from the coconut? Or strawberry daiquiris? Check, check and check! I got to work and created the easiest and most delicious Spring Break Smoothie! I promise, if you sip it slowly enough, lay your beach towel down and sit by the window (add sunglasses for effect) and close your eyes, you’re ON THAT BEACH! I know it’s not my normal, prepare for your week ahead, recipe. BUT, this will hopefully bring you some sunshine on a cloudy day. Enjoy!
Ingredients (smoothie for one)
1 cup of canned coconut milk
1 cup of fresh or frozen pineapple
