Tropical breeze

Or in this case, tropical mac nut freeze. That's the cooling effect I've craved in these warming temps. Being pregnant, it feels at least 10 degrees warmer than usual.

Yesterday was no exception, so I quickly whipped up this yummy treat. It's just a blend of raw macadamia nuts and frozen tropical fruit (I used a combo of pineapple, mango, peach, cantaloupe and kiwi).

I was so eager to indulge in this chilly concoction that I nearly forgot to take this pic. After a couple of bites, I was able to hold back long enough to capture its creamy texture before it melted entirely.

It was a race to the finish, as I did my best to polish it off while it was still somewhat frozen. But don't worry about me; I still enjoyed every last satisfying bite :-)
