Like most of you (I'm just guessing here), I too had planned on being über-productive this weekend.
Like crazy busy, but not in a bad way.
Never in a bad way.
Rather, like the-cookie-monster-gobbling-up-chocolate-chip-cookies-by-the-ton-in-a-matter-of-seconds kind of productive. You know, get stuff out of the way.
In a pleasurable manner.
Except, I did want to give myself the entire weekend to finish up. So much more healthy, kids!
Oh, and the cookies are in fact chores. Sorry.
On my to do list I see things such as tidy up, organize shelving unit and write at least two blog posts...
I really need to get that thing out of sight. Very distracting...
As I am sure you will have guessed by now, regrettably, this weekend, I have not managed to cross any of those things off of my list.
Yes, you are correct, you could say, 'Hey, no worries, you still have half of the weekend ahead of you'.
But you see, I can say with absolute certainty that my laziness will not be overcome anytime soon and that my to do list will in fact not be reduced in size in the pace that I had hoped and intended it to.
Which is ok, because as you know, to do lists never actually truly vanish. Instead, sadly, they tend to grow...
So, what's the rush really?
Which is why, instead of getting my cookie monster on, I have been sitting in the sun
Now all I need to do is figure out which recipe to try first. The one thing I might actually be able to get done, wohoo!
I believe it is the hottest weekend of the year so far, so while enjoying my light reading, I also decided to make a refreshing summer smoothie. I had planned to make my beloved mango smoothie, the recipe of which I had shared earlier.
But as we have already established, this weekend hasn't been going according to plan, now has it? So scratch that and get ready for a new and improved version of the recipe, which - trust me - will be your cool new friend on these hot summer days!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
1/2 mango, diced
1 banana, frozen
2-3 Tbsp yoghurt
1 Tbsp honey
1 big handful of fresh mint leaves
Peel and slice the banana, and place in freezer for at least one hour.
In a stand mixer, or using an immersion blender, mix the banana and diced mango with the yoghurt. Top with honey and fresh mint, and blend well. Add the crushed ice and a straw.
The fresh mint gives the smoothie that little something extra. I wouldn't want to miss it!
And may I just say, I am so glad something productive resulted from this weekend!
