Mango Madness Miercoles.

The mangoes picked up over the weekend ripened up perfectly: not too sweet, not too tart. Solid, too. Blended them with pineapple, coconut water, ginger, among other good things.

Was a good pick me up, and not just for the sugar. Think I was working on a dearth of potassium today.

For two:

- 3/4 c. chopped mango
- 3/4 c. frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 c. coconut water
- 2 T. coconut cream
- powdered ginger, cinnamon to taste
- seltzer
- pomegranate seeds (optional)

Blend mango, pineapple, coconut, and ginger.  Pour into your highball glasses.  Top with seltzer, sprinkle with a bit more ginger and some cinnamon.  Add pomegranate seeds, if you'd like.  Thinking that they'd float, I tossed a few in as a garnish.  Well, they sunk.  No matter:  they did look pretty floating around in the drink, my little Dry January Garnets.
