This week I feel like I’ve been swinging from vine-to-
An airplane monkey, if you will.
I’ve also been a room service monkey.
Forgetting my razor made me a hairy monkey.
The security line in Charlotte made me WANT to be a poo-slinging monkey.
Even after all that travel, I have to go into the office today
on a Friday and be an all-day meeting monkey.
It’s all good. This weekend I am planning an Italian wine tour with my wine-drinking monkey-friends.
First I need to satisfy a caveman-like craving. Due to travel, it’s been a smoothie-less week… and the last day of a loooong week necessitates the appearance of Coffee Monkey.
Coffee Monkey Smoothie
- 1 banana
- 1/2 C coffee
- 1/2 C unsweetened almond milk
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp maca
- 1 C spinach
- 10 drops vanilla NuNaturals Stevia
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp guar gum
- Ice + water, to taste
Toss everything in a blender/Magic Bullet/Vitamix and blend until smooth.
Try not to spill while monkey-swinging your way through getting dressed and running out the door.
2 months until Italy!!!
Anyone have any winery suggestions for the Veneto, Friuli, Piedmont, or Tuscan regions?
Are you planning to go to the FoodBuzz Blogger Festival? I signed up this morning!!!
