I love avocados, I love spinach… so when I came across some avocado shake recipes I decided to try out some of my favorite flavors all together. Here is how it went. Enjoy!
You will need:
one ripe avocado
a handful or two of baby spinach
3/4 cup coconut milk (I used the vanilla one)
1 tablespoon of sweetned condensed milk… but you could use any sweetner or honey!
the juice of one key lime or lime
3-4 ice cubes
then start blending!
If you live in a warm climate (like us at Sonoran Chic) you can walk out into your yard and get the lime and spinach fresh! But store bought is just as good;)
Now as most foo chic experiments go, we decided to expand on delicious! Though the above recipe is muy delicioso, I wondered what it would be like with some honey greek yogurt added in… So I blended in about a 1/4-1/2 cup and then put a dollop ontop just for some flare;) It was sooo good! Enjoy!
Take your favorite peppermint or spearmint tea (or a combo) and steep. Add in hot chocolate powder and top with steamed milk. Nothing warms you up better or feels more like the holidays, than peppermint and chocolate!
Melt 2 tablespoons butter and sprinkle in coriander, cumin, and a tiny bit o cinnamon. Add onions (caramelized ones work nicely), and some garlic. Saute some chicken in the mixture and add some spicy-ness… like chili peppers! Mix curry powder into coconut milk and then pour over mixture. (medium heat then simmer until it smells really good). Serve over rice.
Dessert gnocchi is soooo good! Pictured above with nutella & cinnamon sugar. It is such a delicious and simple idea and it can be done with a variety of toppings! With the right ingredients, it can be made for people with special diet restrictions. Not too mention, for those of us waching our weight, it is such a small dessert… you can portion it to any size!
