maya’s rainbow juice

maya's rainbow juice

Hi everyone, as we’ve mentioned in previous posts on social media, our close friend Maya was staying with us for the past two months while she battles cancer, and yesterday she flew home to Oregon to get more treatment. We took good care of her, making organic juices every day, and we are honored to share our recipe with you. Thank you so much to Melissa’s Produce for delivering a weekly Organic Family Box of produce to our home, which we used to make this vibrant drink. These abundant shipments of fruits and vegetables have helped minimize our trips to the grocery store, and are a great way to have fresh produce delivered right to your doorstep—no masks or gloves necessary.

This post was created in partnership with Montmorency Tart Cherries. All opinions are our own.

We’ve all been there before. You have an early morning, you probably shouldn’t have said yes to that third cocktail last night, you have barely any time to get ready before rushing out the door, you’re hungry but there’s no time to whip up our winter shakshuka (although you could have pulled it off if you hadn’t hit that snooze button 6 times), and you need something nutritious that will give you the energy to last until lunchtime. Have no fear, the Husbands are here, and we’ve got your frantic backs! You may have gotten off to a rough start, but we have something to fix all of this – introducing our delicious Tart Cherry Vanilla Swirl Smoothie.

We all have food memories that make us smile. Maybe it’s a special cake that your grandmother prepared for every birthday, or the fall aromas of pies baking in the oven that fill the house during the holidays. Or perhaps it’s the entrée from a memorable romantic meal, and you can still picture the flickering candles glowing in the room. Everyone has special moments that we cherish because food is an expression of love. It brings people and families together and it’s a way for us to connect and learn about other cultures and unique flavors from all around the world. Since starting our blog in 2015, we have learned so much from our audience and the community, and it is truly inspiring to be a part of this creative space where we can all learn from each other, cook together, and drool over everyone’s photos on social media—even from opposite sides of the planet. We’re excited to share this recipe with you today: it’s cool, minty, chocolatey, and delicious, and the frosty emerald green color from the California avocados will look quite elegant in your hand at your next summer party.
