It has been pouring rain here in Floripa for almost 24 hours. Today became an unplanned swim-only day because my bike is perfectly dialed at the moment and I am not about to mess that up by taking it out in this weather . . .
Soooo let’s talk about food! Somewhere Amanda will be very sad to learn that our favorite acai place has closed. Since I don’t have a car, I am stuck with the home-made version. But since we are in Brasil, the ingredients are easy to come by. Above: strawberry and banana-flavored frozen acai, and plain frozen pureed mango.
I threw it in the blender with peanut butter, water, and Tropical Tango Vega. That mixture with some gluten-free granola and banana on top = almost as good as the café version!
Some of my other favorite Brasilian treats: peanutty deliciousness.
And of course, I will be filling my suitcase with lots of this to take back home!
