So so good for breakfast

Bob's Red Mill flaked coconut

(You never know where you’ll find inspiration.)

If I’m counting correctly, this is my third ever post about what I had for breakfast. Today’s creation was so good, I had to crow about it. I wish I had taken a photo, but I’ll just do the product placement for Bob’s Red Mill coconut flakes instead.

This requires a high powered blender, though it would probably work in a normal blender if you chop things up small first. (My friend Sally moved to Australia last summer and I miss her like crazy, every day. The only thing good about her departure is that she sold me her Vitamix before she left.) I have made this without the coconut flakes, but today when I saw them, they called to me. I thought it would either be really good, or terrible. It was really good. So good, I want to make another one right now.

This recipe is approximate. My husband liked it, but I didn’t even try it on the child, because I know her by now. Maybe when she’s older.

Put in blender:

  • 1 medium apple
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 small carrots
  • 1 clove garlic
  • about an inch or so of ginger root
  • dash cayenne (don’t be shy!)
  • small handful of coconut flakes
  • 6-8 ice cubes, and enough water to blend (add more if needed)

Blend till it’s smooth.

Drink it down.

Notice the sensation: that feeling you might actually survive the day.
