I love instagram. It makes me all kinds of happy to see and post fun pictures. Snapshots tell mini stories that would otherwise go unnoticed. Or forgotten.
Posting on instagram is much easier than blogging. For example, I wanted to share my favorite new smoothie recipe with you. So I took a photo of my avocado coconut cream smoothie this morning. The photo is awful. It was still dark outside, the automatic flash went off, it’s out of focus, and the composition clearly reveals the photo was taken BC (before coffee).
Photos like this usually end up in my trash folder.
Because I love you. And I love this smoothie, I cheated and posted the recipe on instagram.
I used a new app called A Beautiful Mess. The app allows you to add quirky doodles and phrases to your photos before posting on instagram and other social media places. The app is super intuitive to use and adds a bit of whimsy to photos. In this case I was able to salvage a photo destined for the trash.
So, there you have it. A fun new app and a delicious smoothie recipe.
Do you have a favorite smoothie or know about a new app? Share!!!
- ½ avocado
- ½ - ¾ cup organic coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4-5 cubes of ice
- Blend ingredients until thick and creamy. You may need to adjust the amount of milk depending on the size of your avocado. If I need more liquid, I usually add a splash of water.
Happy Monday, friends!
