While interning at Sisco+Berluti, stacking is always on the mind. Finding the right colors and textures that will complement each other when layered together is a true delight. Every time I create a stack, I indulge in the endless possibilities of unexpected pairings of arm candy. I love changing things up and making a new creation from bracelets that I already own.With stacking on the mind, I was inspired to try something new: a stacked smoothie. I layered a thick blueberry smoothie over a ripe peach & banana smoothie, and let me tell you, the end result was a perfect stack.
Stacked Up Smoothie
1 c. unsweetened almond milk
1/4 c. frozen ripe peaches
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 c. frozen blueberries
5 ice cubes
Pinch of cinnamon
Stevia to taste
Combine the milk, Stevia, cinnamon, peaches, ice, banana & peaches and blend until smooth. Pour half of the smoothie into a glass. Add in the blueberries and blend until smooth. Pour the remainder on top of the banana & peach smoothie. Top with fresh berries or granola. Enjoy!
The ever so ugly ginger rhizome surprisingly has some pretty perks. Whether grated, pickled, candied or pureed, ginger packs a peppery punch to the palate. From warming up in the wintertime with my mom’s carrot-ginger soup to dipping the pickled slices in a little soy and wasabi, I have always had a love for this ingredient.
Not only is ginger known for its bold taste, but also its many health benefits:
Cleanses & refreshes the palate
Fights against the cold & flu
Detoxifies the body & clears sinuses
Aids in digestion & naseau
Reduces muscle pain & inflammation
So, enjoy it with your next salmon roll, blend it into your weekly juice detox, garnish it on your ahi tuna steaks, puree it into your bowl of soup, or add it into a cleansing cup of tea.
