I’ve fallen in love with a new fruit and that fruit’s name is Mamey.
I NEED to find a local fruit stand that sells this! It’s so tasty, especially in the form of a delicious refreshing smoothie. 🙂
That’s right I said smoothie!
My goal this morning was to recreate the wonderful Mamey smoothie I had at Robert is Here on Sunday.
My slightly healthified version of the smoothie contained
- 1/3 block of silken tofu
- 1/2 of the mamey pictured above
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- drizzle of agave nectar
My smoothie went in a bowl and was topped with granola and cacao nibs.
The silken tofu gave the smoothie the perfect creamy consistency I was striving for. This bowl was so good, I didn’t want it to end. Don’t be surprised if you see if again tomorrow! 😉
On the side I had a piece of pumpkin nut bread with almond butter.
Before my breakfast I did an easy 4 mile run around the block. I have hot yoga plans with Caitlin tonight and didn’t want to go too crazy running this morning.
Something to read…
It’s a well written article on a few Chef’s feelings towards food bloggers or the ‘food paparazzi’ as they so delicately put it. I find it interesting in the article that some chefs tend to be annoyed by all the photos, but none are willing to ban it because they understand that it is free publicity and the guerilla style marketing is keeping their seats filled.
I also thought some people may be going a bit overboard by setting up a tripod at a restaurant. I mean, seriously? I’m all for taking photos of my food, but it usually takes me less than a minute, I never use a flash, and I make sure my food doesn’t get cold in the process. 🙂
