Batido de Mamey Recipe (Mamey Smoothie)

The Glass is Half-Full

My family and I are on vacation this week.

And I confess that I was going to skip posting a recipe (Shut up. I know!) because I was busy preparing what I’d take and planning what we would do.

But then, I started thinking of summer…

Ah, summer.

I started thinking about how I’m going to slowly savor that giant stack of books I have been saving.

See? I can’t even stop with the food metaphors for one post, but that’s not important right now.

I started thinking sandals and sunscreen.

Long walks on the beach and amazing sunsets.

Barbecuing every night and . . .

Batidos de Mamey!

You can take the Cuban mom out of the kitchen….
