It was a dark and stormy night on Halloween weekend. Well, not really. This is Phoenix and it was sunny and 85 degrees today. I just thought it would be a good spooky start to this post! Dark & Stormy cocktails are good any time of year!
Picking fruit in the desert in the dead of summer? Crazy, right? That’s what I thought, too. Prickly pear fruit are abundant in the Phoenix desert and ready for the picking. The reward of a prickly pear margarita at the end of a harvest was a great summertime surprise!
This creamy (and slightly crunchy) cashew and banana smoothie is tasty, quick to make and nutritious!
