Strawberry Mocha Smoothie
I’m enjoying this beautiful Sunday afternoon in my part of the country, chillaxin’ with this delicious, coffee-infused smoothie as I listen to smooth jazz, flip through cookbooks and become better acquainted with my Nikon (I’ve vowed to only post iPhone pics here as a last resort).
Yep, I’m getting my caffeine buzz on before I go into my kitchen to figure out how to transform this lovely, super sweet Taiwan melon (aka Golden Honey Kiss) that I picked up at the Asian market yesterday. Just thought I’d share this recipe with you guys right quick. I drink these about two or three time a week (sans the coffee sometimes) as a healthy alternative to satisfy my sweet tooth or whenever I need a quick lift. I’ll be back soon with the results of my melon experiment. Wishing everyone a smooth and relaxing Sunday!
