What Do Mermaids Eat IRL?

MÈR-MÈR  |  Mermaid Smoothie Mix 🍹

It's already a known fact that when mermaids decide to live their lives on land, they use Mèr-Mèr Monoï to maintain their magical flowy manes, right? ;)

But what on earth do they eat? The memorable scene from Splash comes to mind...you know the scene where Allen (Tom Hanks) takes Madison (Daryl Hannah) out to a nice restaurant for dinner - when the lobster is served, Madison immediately recognizes it and grabs it whole with two hands and devours it in a few crunchy bites!

Let's just say, Mermaids have learned to be more subtle nowadays. 

Inspired by our Mèr-Mèr Monoï ingredients, here's a smoothie dedicated to all the mermaids out there who are feeling homesick from the sea...and not to worry, this recipe does not require any lobsters! 

 

What you'll need:

1) Emerald Smoothie :    

- Spirulina (2 tsps, can put more but it does have a strong scent!)

- Kiwi (3, ripe for more sweetness)

- Banana (2, ripe for more sweetness)

2) Pink Smoothie :          

- Strawberry (8)

- Cherry (10, pitted)

- Peach (4, pitted and ripe for more sweetness)

3) Coconut milk (or other milks you prefer)

*Optional toppings / additives : coconut flakes (unsweetened), cocoa nibs, golji berries, granola, almonds, protein powder and/or honey. 

 

The benefits: 

-Spirulina: Strengthens the immune system and boosts the energy level. 

-Kiwi: A good source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects your skin from free radicals.

-Banana: Improves your mood, it regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation. 

-Strawberry: Great source of fibre and vitamins C, K. 

-Cherry: Slows the aging of skin, each fruit is packed with powerful antioxidants. It contain natural melatonin, which helps you to sleep better at night. 

-Peach: A great source of vitamin C and can help reduce anxiety, in Hungary peaches are often referred to as the "Fruit of Calmness". 

How to make:

(for 2 servings)

-Mix each smoothie (1.Emerald and 2.Pink) separately with 3/4 cup of coconut milk in a blender.

-Pour each smoothie mix into an ice tray, and leave it in the freezer overnight. 

next day...

-Throw 4 frozen Emerald Smoothie cubes into the blender, depending on how you'd like to have smoothie, add 1/2 cup of coconut milk if you'd like it in a bowl with a spoon OR add 2/3 cup of coconut milk if you'd like it in a cup.  

-Throw 6 frozen Pink Smoothie cubes into the blender, same idea, depending on how you'd like to have smoothie, add 2/3 cup of coconut milk if you'd like it in a bowl with a spoon OR add 1 cup of coconut milk if you'd like it in a cup.  

-Pour the Emerald Smoothie first into the cup, then pour the Pink Smoothie on top. 

-Sprinkle the smoothie with your choice of toppings! 

Et voilà! 

The perfect way to prolong the hazy summer days...We hope you enjoy. :)
