Mary’s Secret Ingredients Spring Box And A Smoothie Bowl
I need to apologize to Mary Frances, she was kind enough to send me her beautiful spring box of goodies. I told her I would include on the blog and post a recipe for one of the items included in the box. Time, life, stuff got me busy and I am afraid I am late in posting.
I have used just about every item in the box, and love how varied and versatile they all are. I always look forward to the kitchen gadget which is always included. The stainless steel soap bar is so cool. When you cut garlic the smell of the garlic is transferred to your fingers, I always knew that stainless steel removes the odor and pull out the nearest stainless steel utensil that I can find and rub my fingers on it using soapy water. It works every time but this handy gadget makes it easy, you fill with your favorite soap and rub away, it even comes with it’s own little caddy so no mess. Love it!
I really wondered what to make with the ingredients, I used the Get Dressed as a marinade for chicken, it was delicious but didn’t have good light and couldn’t take a photo. Honestly, I am not much of a mustard eater and don’t eat sandwiches so I still haven’t opened the mustard although I am certain it’s delicious. The whiskey infused chocolate truffles were so good I quickly downed them and, they were just fine on their own so why mess with perfection. That left the Soom chocolate tahini, I was a bit skeptical, I like tahini in hummus and halva is delicious but mixing with chocolate was something I never thought of. Tasting a spoonful of it, and then another I sort of became obsessed with the flavor, it’s delicious, not too sweet, you can definitely taste the tahini but it’s so well balanced with the chocolate I really liked it a lot.
I am on Instagram all the time and see these amazing smoothie bowls posted, every morning I have a smoothie or shake but never made a smoothie bowl. It came to me, use the chocolate tahini in a smoothie bowl, decorate with some fresh fruit and crunchy stuff and it would make an awesome breakfast. So that is exactly what I did. I always have frozen fruit on hand, for this smoothy I used frozen banana’s and strawberries, some coconut milk and the chocolate tahini. Blend it, pour it in a bowl, decorate. Simple and healthful and delicious.
Thank you again Mary Frances for the amazing box of goodies, I totally enjoyed it and apoligize again for the late posting. You all should give one of Mary’s boxes a try, visit Mary’s blog for amazing recipes and information about ordering her boxes, you will be introduced to some really great products, part of the proceeds goes to charity and I feel very strongly about always supporting small business. I believe the Spring Box may be sold out but you can order the box for Summer here. Hurray for Entrepreneurs!
Always happy to see you eat healthy Suzanne!!!

Hi Teagan, it really is a lovely box and I love the surprise factor. Really loved the chocolate tahini😛
Now I need to have a taste. An imagination for taste can only go so far, Suzanne. 🙂 You’re so creative. The box is such a lovely idea. Cheers to you and Mary Frances.
…are there any Whiskey Chocolate Truffles left…my dear…😏…
I didn’t think so 🌷
They were the first to go❤️
How fun Suzanne. I’ve seen the silver soap gadget but haven’t used one. That Smoothie bowl sounds amazing too!
Oooh I love fun boxes like this! The silver soap looks interesting, I think I’m going to go hunt for one!

How fun it must be to get a box of goodies like that in the mail!! Mustard is a tough one if you’re watching all those carbs, but I have have made a chicken salad with lots of mustard before….
