American Psycho - And Other Serial Offenders

Every once in a while you get a really fun brief from a client. Best Skin (UK) asked if I could style and photograph four very different smoothies that they had created. It was a great fun recreating, and shooting them - and tasting them was just as amazing. These are well worth trying - you can feel the Goodness Police flowing through your veins. To get the rest of the recipes go to www.bestskin.co.uk

The American Psycho.

You live in a big city, perhaps in a flat; somewhere like the American Gardens Building on W. 81st. You could be any age, but you definitely believe in taking care of yourself and in a balanced diet and rigourous exercise regime. When your stomach crunches are done (all 1000 of them) and the final moisturizing protective lotion is applied; the only thing left to do is drink your American Psycho - designed to be minimal yet effective just like your Eames Barcelona chair. Cold brew coffee is your buzz tempered to a slow release by organic coconut milk and cream. A pinch of maca for a spike of protein and you know you've started the day in the best way you can. Afterall, those video tapes won't return themselves.

Ingredients

  • 1 mug of black cold brew coffee (or black coffee from a cafetiere left to cool in the fridge overnight)
  • 1.5 tablespoons of coconut cream (organic and highest coconut concentration possible - use the solidified cream from the top of the tin, not the water).
  • Coconut milk (for pouring) - use as much as you prefer to create a stronger or more milky coffee.
  • A pinch of maca

Blend the ingredients together for 10 seconds maximum, or stir together briskly.
