2016 what???  Yes I am a little behind.

Thanks for the break you guys!  I took almost three weeks off and it was magical.  Just what I needed to get the house in order, spend lots of time with the fam, and get re-inspired with lots of fun recipe ideas for the new year.  I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season, and more on all that tomorrow!

For now, I’m starting things off with a lovely breakfast that will energize you and make you feel all warm and sunshine-y inside.

Winter is tough, am I right?  I mean besides freezing our tatas off, there’s not a whole lot to choose from in the fresh, locally-grown seasonal fruit department.  During the rest of the year, I like to plan my recipes around that, but in the winter you really can’t.  At least not in the northeastern part of the U.S.  So let’s give ourselves a break, and a delicious one at that.  We’re using gorgeous tropical fruits in this smoothie bowl, and it’s such a treat!

Juicy and sweet and full of fresh flavor.  Float your fruit, seeds, and coconut flakes in a pool of zingy green smoothie.  This one is sweetened with dates, fortified with Greek yogurt and oats, and spiked with fresh ginger to energize you and power you through your morning!  Find the full recipe and how-to on KitchenAid’s blog, The Kitchenthusiast 🙂
