Toasted Coconut + Banana Smoothie

Toasted-Coconut-Smoothie_lark-linen 

Though I may not always succeed, I really do try to not sit here and complain about the weather. I’m usually the type to try to find the silver lining in anything and everything I’m handed. It’s cold out? Let’s build a blanket nest and watch movies! Rainy? A cup of tea is just the ticket. But this year, winter has been brutal. Brutal! And there’s only so many blanket nests one can build! So this week I’m attempting another tactic: summer in a glass via this toasted coconut smoothie. If we can’t soak up the sun, perhaps maybe we can drink it? Note to winter: take a hint!
