The heat wave has finally broken here in NYC! What used to be 95+° weather daily last week has now plunged to near-frigid 85-ish temperatures this week- can you believe how lucky we are? 🙂
Disgusting humidity and insane heat aside, I’m really enjoying this summer. Wedding preparations are going swimmingly so far (knock on wood), I’ve been knocking a lot off my to-do list, and I’m getting ready to go on a long weekend trip to Montreal on Friday! As you may know, I lived in Montreal for 3 years during undergrad, and I LOVE going back as much as I am able to.
Montreal is a foodie haven for me- between the smoked meat sandwiches at Schwartz’s, authentic Lebanese fast food at Boustan, and (of course!) the bangin’ plates of poutine at La Banquise, I never leave hungry (or any skinnier) after my visits! It is one of my favorite cities on Earth, and I really can’t wait to go back in a few days!
But if you’re sticking around here this weekend, and are dying for a good way to beat the heat, look no further. Frozen mangoes, fresh mint, and cool almond milk blend together for a delicious icy concoction that helps keep you cool and tastes amazing to boot.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 mango, peeled and diced, frozen (can also use fresh)
- 1 banana, frozen or fresh
- 1 handful fresh mint (about ⅓ cup packed)
- 4-5 ice cubes (if not using frozen fruit)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour and enjoy!
As with all my favorite blended drinks on here, this one is a total cinch to put together and is guaranteed to keep you cool and refreshed!
Any good upcoming summer plans for you all?
Keep cool, and happy eating 🙂
