Blue Lagoon Smoothie Bowl

This morning I woke up craving spirulina. I guess there are worse addictions.

More specifically, I was craving the color of this spirulina bowl. I’m *slightly* obsessed with anything sea foam green, and part of the reason I bought spirulina was to turn smoothies that color. For this bowl, I blended a little spirulina powder with a frozen banana and kefir.

The texture was a little thicker than a regular smoothie but not as thick as a slushy. I topped the smoothie bowl with some kiwi slices, coconut, chia seeds, and blueberries. The effect reminded me of stumbling into a blue lagoon, so that’s what I named this bowl.

In other news, Emmanuel Macron won the French presidency and I am SO relieved. I was on edge when I found out on Sunday morning that hackers tried to mess up his campaign, but luckily that didn’t sway the results.

Besides feeling happy for France that they’ve elected a sane, intelligent human being as their president instead of a demented, spray-tanned asinine baby, I felt confused. Why do I still live in America? I wondered. I’m still asking myself that question. Maybe soon I’ll find an answer.

Until then, here’s a song to celebrate Macron’s victory. Also, here’s a picture of some macarons that I ate yesterday. I will never not think of macarons when I see or hear Macron’s name.
