Hawaiian Vacation Tropic Vodka Smoothie & Yoga Practice

Hey peeps.  I just got back from a family vacation in glorious Maui, Hawaii.  I found out the hard way that going on vacation with an infant is NOT the most relaxing way to travel.  Fortunately, Hawaii is still Hawaii, and it was as awesome as ever.  Our villa came equipped with a blender, so I was able to get my smoothie operations on in Maui.  Since I was on vacation, I decided to make this an adult smoothie and add some locally made organic vodka.  It’s organic, so that means it’s good for you, right?  I added some organic fruit from the local health food store for some tropic flavor and used good old almond milk as my liquid base.  Check it out.

Yoga Practice

The only yoga I was doing after a couple of these smoothies was extended savasana (resting) pose :).  Aloha!
