Pardon the ugly phone screen shot but I’m not in front of my computer and just had to blog this *now*. Otherwise I procrastinate. And once I put it off I forget. Which usually means I never ever post it. Okay, I’m done with the justifying.
At any rate, I really love Instagram and every food enthusiast should too, It’s the best source to find recipes, new restaurants, take a peek at the inner workings of restaurants, see private lives of our favorite chefs and other food industry people. I really, really love it when chefs post recipes of what *they* eat.
Back when I lived in NYC, Boqueria was a super popular tapas place. In 2012 (I believe – too lazy to google), the head chef Seamus Mullen opened his own restaurant Tertulia in the West Village down the street from where I lived. I used to go at least once a week.
The other day I downloaded the Google Photos app for my phone, which pulled up all sorts of gems. This Tertulia photo was one of them ↓
I posted it on Insta and since my photos are geo-tagged I was able to pull up other (recent) photos from Tertulia and somehow ended up on Chef Seamus’ Instagram. From there, I noticed a post for a smoothie and when I clicked on the photo, saw he wrote the recipe in the comments.
So here it is:
Chef Seamus Mullen’s Blueberry Almond Smoothie
1 c. frozen wild blueberries
1/4 c. almond butter
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 c. unsweetened almond milk
1 handful of dark leafy greens or parsley
Pinch of sea salt
Some ice cubes
Throw above in a blender. Done and Done.
Chef Seamus also mentions he preps this the night before.

It’s next door to Soto and around the corner from Dan Barber’s Blue Hill and Mario Batali’s Babbo. Damn, I lived in an amazing neighborhood and miss NYC so much.
