Bliss in a Blender

19 Jun

This time last year, I was hanging out in Thailand with my main squeeze. It’s a magical place, Thailand. The people are gracious, the landscape is lush and the cuisine is vibrant, nourishing and utterly fresh. Think mangos and coconuts still warm from the sun; think aromatic ginger, lemongrass and lime leaves; think potent green chilies that whirl up your inner fire. It was pure paradise for a yogini seeking to recharge and renew.

Recently, I asked raw, vegan chef Matthew Kenney for a post-yoga smoothie recommendation and—to my absolute delight— this is the recipe he sent along:

Thai Green

2 cup Frozen Mango
1 cup Young Thai Coconut Meat
1 Date
handful of Spinach
1 teaspoon Spirullina
2 tablespoon Agave
1 tablespoon Lime Juice
1/2 Thai Green Chili (seedless)
pinch salt
1/2 cup Thai Coconut Water
1/2 cup Raw Almond Milk

Blend well, at least 1 minute, until smooth.

I might add, sip slowly while contemplating your next, big adventure!

Pick up one of Matthew’s amazing raw cookbooks online or at your local bookstore. Your body with love you for it.
