Not the best week, I ain’t gonna lie. But ya know what, it’s about over. And the hubs will be back home Monday after his Sunday race. Hopefully my stomach will be out of a knot by then. Or maybe I need to look into these tips, eh? haha.
Anyway, over the past few days the weather has started climbing its way up again. Oh Texas summer, you are brutal. But I WILL OWN YOU! It’s already hit 103F this week. I know EMZ, you have it worse out there in Arizona. And I heard its still snowing somewhere up north. Say what?!
But like I said, this weather…..its hot….BUT I WILL OWN IT! BRING IT ON! Up early for outdoor runs and teaching outdoor bootcamp before that sun and heat get us. It’s kinda nice. As Jessica and Heather would say, you get to see the world awake from its slumber. Very cool!
After an early morning outdoor sweat feast, I’m home for a second breakfast
. And no, I am not craving whipped oats, OIAJ, green monsters, etc. I want something lightly sweet, refreshing, and COLD!
Pumpkin Mango Smoothie in a Bowl
- 1 cup mango (frozen works best)
- 5oz plain yogurt (i used goats milk yogurt)
- ¼ cup pumpkin puree
- ¼ cup cream or milk (i used coconut milk)
- ground ginger (or fresh would be nice too)
- 1 heaping tablespoon coconut flour
- cinnamon and orange peel to garnish
Combine everyone into a food processor except for your oil and flour. Blend until smooth, then add in your coconut flour, pumpkin, and ginger. Blend again. Spoon into bowl and chill for a bit. If you used fresh mango, chill it a little longer. Then garnish with cinnamon and orange peel. [/print_this]
