Bliss Café's Mystic Mango and 2013 Lazy Bones Paso Robles Cabernet Franc

Green eggs and ham? I’m cool with that. Green has never been more appetizing than in this cool veggie-packed smoothie. Almond milk, frozen bananas, mango, fresh kale, coconut oil, white American ginseng, raw vanilla bean, and raw dates come together to lower your body temperature and your stress levels. Less money than springing for a yoga class, and you don’t even have to bend yourself into a pretzel.

• Bliss Café’s Mystic Mango—About $8; 778 Higuera St., SLO.

Cheap! Cheap! Cheap! No, that’s not the little birdie at my window. It’s the sound my brain makes when I find a bottle of decent cabernet franc for under $10. Was I skeptical of this wine, supposedly made from Paso Robles Bordeaux grapes? Oh yes. Was I surprised by its moody, black cherry hue, sweet tobacco notes, and soft tannins? Oh yes! Get this Trader Joe’s exclusive before it’s gone, and pair it with anything you can throw on the barbecue.

2013 Lazy Bones Paso Robles Cabernet Franc—About $7; 3977 Higuera St., SLO.
