In her novel “Love,” Toni Morrison explores the different facets of love, its proximity to hate, and its destructive effects on the psyche when it is missing from one’s life, especially the life of a child. She examines the different varieties of love: parental, self, perverted, platonic, sadomasochistic, and young, romantic love. Written with exceptional artistry both in style and content, "Love" is a book one needs to read at least twice in order to fully understand its meaning.
Because Vida, who is Romen’s grandmother likes pineapple, I decided to make a pineapple smoothie. In this way I am celebrating Novel Food, the literary/culinary event hosted by Simona from Briciole. Read something, cook something inspired by the work, and then write a post about it. That’s Novel Food!
HOW I MAKE A PINEAPPLE "LOVE" SMOOTHIE:
2 cups fresh pineapple cut into chunks
2 oranges, peeled, broken up into segments, any seeds removed
1 banana, peeled, cut into chunks
½ cup 2% Greek yogurt
1 cup coconut milk
2 teaspoons shredded coconut
Add all the ingredients except the shredded coconut into a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and sprinkle the top with shredded coconut.
IT'S REFRESHING!!! And it's smooth as silk, which reminds me of Silk, the fictional town in which "Love" is set.
