Smoothies and cocktail recipes

Vitamin C smoothie

Hi friends! I’m off to Boston this morning for a fun Reebok event. This post was supposed to go up much earlier, but as I was about to upload, we had a bit of a… situation. One of the engines in the plane malfunctioned and we made an emergency landing in Dallas. It was the…

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 😉 That’s where this apple pie smoothie comes in–it’s a great way to enjoy fall flavors even when the weather hasn’t gotten on board with what…

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 Saketini Recipe

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…

Chili Mango Slushy

I have a delicious summery treat for you today, inspired by my heritage: chili mango slushy. My love of spicy food could be explained by many different factors, but I really think my addiction is hereditary. My nana eats jalapeños like they’re baby bell peppers. I live for green corn tamales -our tamale guy makes…

Summer Sangria

I believe that it’s always a good time for sangria, so please feel free to replace “summer” in the name of this sangria recipe 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…

Sparkling tea lemonade

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a great start! I had an amazing weekend with amazing people. I’m also wicked sore from teaching on Saturday. My biceps are killing me! I guess that’s what two classes full of booty poppin’ and crazy arm movements will do to ya. Breakfast: Egg scramble with 2…

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…
