Spiced Holiday Smoothie

Something about cold weather doesn’t just make us pull out the fleece blankets and grab a big fluffy cat for extra warmth. It makes us slow down and start taking time to look a little deeper.

  1. I loled at ‘grab a big fluffy cat for extra warmth’ – that cat does look like the perfect lap warmer! So gorgeous :) I definitely agree about colder weather forcing us to slow down, I think we all become more introspective when the weather is against us and keeping us all inside (at least it works that way for me every year).
    Thanks for sharing this recipe at Smoothie OTW – I’ve made it my mission this week to find Irish Moss somewhere local. You mention it in so many of your recipes and I simply must try it!

    • Hi Ally!

      I love my cats :D This particular one likes to plant herself on me and is quite insulted when I DARE move. She’s 12 lb. and gets a wee bit heavy after a while. LOL
