Isn’t it lovely, isn’t it marvelous

Spent some lovely time this weekend perusing this blog, the beauty of it is by Katey Denno, a NYC celebrity Make-up artist with a yen for all things natural.  I was particularly fascinated by this posting since cold and flu season is right around the corner and I especially appreciated her disclaimer about coconut oil.  I have a few friends who are repelled by all things coconut and couldn’t agree more with Katey who says,

Not everyone will like coconut oil. I firmly believe that if your body tells you it’s not for you by making you feel turned off by the smell, or if you feel sick to your stomach when you ingest it, perhaps try another brand, and if you get the same response, listen to your body and pick up an extra virgin, organic olive oil instead. It’s always best to listen to your body!”

THAT said, if you ARE into getting coco-nutty, I’ve been adding coconut oil to my smoothies lately and HOLY COW it’s like a whole new plane of yumminess, here’s my latest coconut dream, makes enough for 2:

 

2 cups Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk

1 cup frozen mango

1 tbs gently melted coconut oil

1 scoop Vega (Vanilla Chai)

1 sprinkle stevia (probably 1/4 tsp)

Put everything in a blender EXCEPT the coconut oil, give it a whirl, when the frozen mango seems incorporated – pour in the coconut oil while blending.  You are done.  Pour into glasses and enjoy!
