January is officially over, which means the start of a new monthly theme on Como Water. This month’s theme is “Juices, Smoothies, and Superfoods” and I couldn’t be more excited for what I have to share with you (including a number of giveaways)!!!
I’m kicking the month off with a smoothie–made creamy by cashews, made spicy by ginger, and made sweet by peaches. In short–the perfect breakfast or snack! The recipe below makes a really rich smoothie, so rich, it was almost like dessert. If you want something a bit less decadent, I would suggest using 1/2 of the cashews or adding more liquid. I’ve also been playing around with Amazing Grass Flavor Packets. They have a ton of vitamin and minerals and add depth to any smoothie.
Lastly, I’m planning a juice recipe round up for the month. If you have any super yummy juice recipes you’d like to share, leave me a comment with the information and I’ll include you in on the round up that’s scheduled for later in Feb.
Happy Thursday everyone!
