Coconut Almond Smoothie

Hello Monday and hello new smoothie recipe. By show of virtual hands, are you a smoothie person?  I could drink a smoothie every day and be a happy camper.  (I could also eat a bagel every day and be in heaven, but I digress.)  My husband is not a fan of smoothies.  No biggie.  Thankfully it’s super easy to whip up a smoothie for one. I tend to make the same smoothie flavor for a few weeks and then I move on to another one which becomes my new favorite.  Lately I’ve been into dairy free smoothies so I came …

Fruit and Oat Smoothie

Who had a crazy hectic weekend and ate or drank too much and needs to detox with healthy foods on this Monday? Not me.  I had the most boring weekend ever and I’m okay with that.  Low key weekends are a great way to recharge myself.  In fact, the past couple of weekends have been quiet and I’ve actually had time to catch up on some reading.  It’s rare that I actually start and finish a book (unless I’m away on vacation).  I read “It Was Me All Along” by Andie Mitchell.  It’s a memoir about her struggles with weight …

Peanut Butter Bomb Smoothies

It’s official, folks.  I finally found a way to enjoy almond milk!  Yes, I know, very exciting news. I have tried almond milk several times and in a variety of ways.  Each of those times I found it gross, which is weird because I like almonds and I like milk.  I don’t need to go dairy free (and I have no intentions of doing so either), but I want to expand my horizons.  So with the new year upon us I thought I’d give almond milk another try.  I’ve never tried it in a smoothie so I figure I’d give that a go.  Well, …

Eggnog Latte

I have one word for you.  Eggnog. Yes, I’m going there… already.  A couple of weeks ago I was standing on line at Starbucks and saw that they have an eggnog latte on their menu.  I’ve made an Eggnog Frappuccino before… which is to die for, but I’d never made a hot version until now.  After seeing how easy it was to make a pumpkin spice latte at home, I knew that I had to give the eggnog version a try. Do you recognize the glass of eggnog?  It’s from my favorite Christmas movie that I must watch every year. …

Pumpkin Spice Latte

I’m celebrating Halloween week with pumpkin spice lattes and orange nail polish. Can you believe it’s almost Halloween?  It felt like just yesterday that I was in a bathing suit sipping a prickly pear margarita.  Okay, maybe not literally yesterday, but it was vacation and it was hot in Arizona, so it wasn’t so long ago that it could already be Halloween.  Could it? Pumpkin spice latte is THE coffee to have for Fall.  Just ask every doughnut shop in your area how they feel about it.  I happen to love it so I’d do what what any ordinary food blogger would …
