Coconut Mango Dream Smoothie
Today's recipe for the morning green smoothie came to me as I was putting things into the blender. I was craving the combo of fresh coconut mylk and the sweetness of mango. Since I only had raw, dried coconut in the house and no young Thai coconuts, I improvised and added half of a Haas avocado to the mix to give the mylk its creaminess. I also added 2 T of fresh, blond colored flax seeds to pump up the creaminess and nutrition for the kiddos and me. The end result was spectacular! I really suggest you give this recipe a try. Enjoy!
+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for sitting on the sun drenched steps with my son helping him with his Saxon math correction. I have the best time relearning math all over again from a child's perspective when I "teach" my children. He does his lessons all on his own actually, but I do all of the correction/grading and in our house we "teach for mastery". So that means, they correct all missed problems until they get the correct answer. Works every time--we have some math wizards in this house because of that; and also due to the fact that the math program we use is one of the best! I am so grateful for that!! Considering I am brain dead when it comes to math :(
