A couple of years ago, I grew tired of my breakfast routine and tried starting my day with smoothies. Fruits, Greek yogurt, almond butter and red kale growing in my tiny garden patch – all went in the blender, with the occasional toasted nut and seeds.
Is it my imagination, or did the ice cream sandwiches of childhood taste better? You know the ones – vanilla ice cream snuggled between oblong chocolate wafer cookies. Back then, there was a pleasant snap of the cookies and a melting creaminess of the ice cream.
