Since it’s 3 days until I get married (what!) you know that the fact that I’m blogging right now is for something super important. Whew! Z, I have to tell you, keeping this a secret from you was HARD but Happy Secret Virtual Baby Shower for Baby Blahnik!

Blahnik Shower Graphic {final}So, background story. Zainab (Z) of Blahnik Baker and I made a connection over a year ago over the blogosphere (could it be mutual love for food and fashion?) and ever since then we’ve had some pretty fun memories and long conversations, including sending numerous blog photos back and forth for help with title names or does this look a tinge too yellow to helping me finalise a new logo when I rebranded.   Last year even we did a blogger gift exchange in which I sent Z a Jamaican themed package (Jamaican savoury and sweet foods authentic to Jamaica) and I just received such an adorable American themed package with gifts I use to this day – including a cute spatula and oven mitten set!

Given our history, Z was naturally invited to my wedding which why I’m even MORE excited about how I found out she was expecting! She delivered the unfortunate news that she wouldn’t be able to make it to the wedding here in Jamaica…because she couldn’t fly so late…because…! I filled in the blanks immediately and told the Mr. Immediately (I’m known for being uber emotional re these things) and tears filled my eyes immediately. Z, I was and I am STILL so happy for you and Justin!! Of course we’ve been talking back and forth about wedding plans and baby plans so about a month ago why Allie from Baking a Moment, Jocelyn from Grandbaby Cakes and Alice from Hip Foodie Mom contacted me about participating in a surprise virtual baby shower, it’s fair to say I was just waiting on that email! Given that I’m writing this at 4:30 am during the only non-wedding filled time, Z you mean a LOT to me!

So I’ve blabbed away, and it’s time for the recipe. Sticking with the general coconut and tropical theme, I wanted a recipe that would be very very easy for Z to make when her beautiful bouncing baby is keeping her busy. A filling smoothie that could be made ahead of time came immediately to mind, and so the two ingredients Mango Coconut Smoothie was born! I’m very fortunate to have coconuts growing in my backyard and two mango trees, so making this recipe was a snap but pre-made coconut milk and bought mangoes work just as a fine.
I honestly thought I would need to add more ingredients to this recipe but one mango later (depending on the size about ½ cup of chunks) and ¾ cup of thick, refrigerated coconut milk later I was sipping away in approval. This recipe is basically the definition of easy, breezy tropical! It’s so  smooth and has a touch of creaminess to it but is very light as well. This would actually make a great tropical cocktail, which I would of course NEVER recommend for Z right  now but you should save this tip in your archives! A ‘toops’ – Jamaican for basically a little bit – of coconut rum would take this up a notch.
Z, I hope you enjoy my Mango Coconut Smoothie and every other one! We are all so happy for you and equally excited to be participating. Here’s to wishing you all the best with your beautiful little man – we’ll be in contact!
