Nutty Sorbet with Mango and Flax Seeds

By Emily Smith

It’s been a busy week and it’s only Wednesday.  Banking, check. Mechanic’s, check. Dentist, check. There’s plenty on the to do list, that’s for sure.  On the bright side, there’s always sorbet. By that I mean sorbet is a good reason to slow down, pause, enjoy and then get back to the schedule.  This recipe is super easy to whip up, it’s totally delicious, plus it’s packed with healthy goodness. As I’m writing this, I want to go blend up some more...it’s that good. 

On another note, I’m sure you’ve received a friendly email from me asking for your vote to keep me in the running to be a Top 25 Circle of Moms Foodie.  I want to say THANK YOU so much for all of your thumbs ups each day this month.  Your loyalty and support has not gone unnoticed and I really, really appreciate it.

    what a super interesting combo of flavors Emily! blended goodness is something i feel is extra do-able; especially with such busy schedules…like you’ve been on lately. yipes! i feel rather whirly myself and could use a nice, fresh sorbet like that.

    you know, today at work one of the guys brought in his magic bullet and was making a berry smoothie with hemp protein powder. i was asking him about it and the benefits sounded amazing, gonna have to check into it further.

    hey, i’ve been voting for you daily, i totally dig those reminder emails with the link included, it makes it so easy to click on over and vote. wishing you much lucks and thanks for all the blog design love. i really appreciate your visits!!! wishing you a less busy time as the weekend approaches. xo ♥
