Smoothies and cocktail recipes

Apple pie smoothie

Even though it’s close to 100 degrees, I can still feel a hint of fall in the air. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but I’m gonna roll with it 😉  Even though the weather in Tucson is always a little late to the “it’s autumn now!” party, there are always fun events to look forward…

My version of the Bowl of the Gods

You knows it’s serious when you can’t stop thinking about a smoothie bowl. I don’t even love smoothie bowls all that much. Sure, I like them, and it’s a way to shake up the breakfast routine, but what can be sooooo special about eating your smoothie like a soup? Apparently a lot of things. I’ve…

Homemade Kombucha

Even though I made kombucha at 105degrees, it’s always freaked me out to make it at home. I pictured our house being overrun by scoby mushrooms, engulfed in a vinegar aroma. I also thought the Pilot thought it would be the final ticket to the “my wife is a little ‘out there’” town. But, guess…

Homemade Almond Milk + flavor variations

I’ve never been a huge fan of drinking milk plain. Even when I was younger, if it wasn’t colored and flavored with the Cocoa Puffs I was eating, I wasn’t a huge fan. I’ve remained that way with milk, until I met almond variety. To me, it tastes so much lighter and milder than the…

Apple Pear Ginger Saketinis

Let’s have a cocktail, shall we? The last time I had a dinner party at the house, I was pregnant so didn’t get to partake in the libations. Now, girls’ nights are when the hubbies watch the babies and my friends and I will enjoy a cocktail together at a lounge or restaurant. When we…

Summer Sangria

I believe that it’s always a good time for sangria, so please feel free to replace “summer” with a season of your choice 😉 It’s a fantastic party beverage, especially if you can make it at home and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I made last night’s sangria at the BBQ we went…

Strawberry-infused sports drink

At a bar in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, they have the best infusions…. fresh fruit soaking in vodka, which tastes dangerously like candy. That’s all I can remember to tell you about those drinks. This infusion is a little bit healthier, and will help instead of hinder your next workout 😉 Strawberry-infused Sports Drink -3 C hot…

Banana Split Protein Shake

This is the reason why I never make oats in the microwave: OATSPLOSION! No matter what I do, how long I cook it for, how much water I add… it always ends up being time to clean the microwave. I was willing to make the sacrifice and try out these new-to-me oats: the half that…
