Celebrating women with smoothies!

Yesterday was Konudagur (Woman’s Day), an Icelandic tradition, roughly equivalent to Valentine’s Day in other countries. It’s a day where men celebrate their special someone with flowers and gifts, and sometimes other significant women in their lives too, like mother and daughters.

Aron definitely took me by surprise when he walked into the bedroom with a party hat on, threw balloons into the bed where I was laying, and then brought me a chocolate-strawberry smoothie (see recipe below), flowers and a gift containing an adorable glass jewelry box, a ring and earrings! 

Later we went on a walk to get some coffee together, and in the evening Aron cooked us a nut roast and surprised me with a new pair of shoes! Uhm, I think it's safe to say this was the best ‘Konudagur’ ever. And yes, my man is adorable. 


Here's the recipe for the delicious, mostly healthy smoothie Aron made me!
