Jason Mraz: “Million-selling artist”

Mraz_songwriterI just peeked at cnn.com to see if they had any more news about Michael Jackson maybe being dead and I spotted a tiny picture of our Mraz.

It’s a good thing I recognized him because his name wasn’t in the headline. It just says, “Million-selling artist intimidated by ‘Idol’“, which is a lame, non-search-friendly title. It also has almost nothing to do with the story, which only briefly mentions ‘Idol’.

I really should have been a headline writer.

Freaky about MJ though, hmm? And freaky about celebrities always dying in threes.  Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett…

Blame it on the boogie,


Jason Mraz, Avocado Farmer

My friends are too good to me. They see these little Mraz bits and pieces on tv or out on the web and they send them my way to make sure I’m not missing out on anything. This morning I hopped on to Facebook to see what was going on and found this gem:

Mraz CNN 

There’s an article and video on CNN.com, as well as Jason’s recipe for Chocomole! That’s just fun to say. Choc-oh-mole-ay, Olé! Memorial Day weekend may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t whip up something new for a crowd. 

Mraz’s Chocomole Recipe:

Note: This will make a huge bowl big enough for a family of four. You’ll want to share this with friends.

Mash up 5 ripened avocados
Add 1 – 2 cups of chopped or blended dates
1 soft cup of raw cacao
1 easy cup of raw carob powder
1 tbsp. vanilla

Add a few long pours of agave nectar to sweeten to liking. Then add half cups of cocoa and keep adding until chocolate taste is right. Careful not to overdo it — if you add too much, it can get bitter.

You will love.


Mmmmraz and chocolate and fresh avocado… life doesn’t get a whole lot better than this (unless there’s a cabana boy involved). I’m not entirely sure where to get raw carob powder, but it sounds like something Trader Joe’s should carry.  The beauty of creating kitchen art is that you can add or subtract to any recipe as you see fit, or depending on what you have handy in your kitchen.

Too much yummy avacado-y food on my plate,
