When I make smoothies, I almost never use a recipe. I toss ingredients in, taste, toss in more. I usually get stuck on something I like and just stick with that for a while--often it's a green like spinach with something creamy, like yogurt or coconut milk, and something sweet, like OJ or some fruit and honey. Bam, there's a smoothie, right?
It's such a simple drink, so why have I never even tried a London Fog before this month? It's the perfect month to enjoy one, isn't it? Storms, coldness slowy seeping away as winter fades into sping... I've had a London Fog latte at home every day this past week and I can't see myself stopping.
This St. Patrick's Day, how about going beyond the green beer and popcorn for something a little more special? I know I've got my keto Irish Mule planned for the weekend, but what do you have lined up for St. Patrick's Day?
Before reading this post at Elana's Pantry, I had no idea that such a thing as a rose quartz latte existed, but here is the recipe! It looks like a beautiful drink made from coconut milk, beet powder, rose water, vanilla stevia, vanilla powder and cacao butter. It's slighly more complicated than other keto drinks I've made (many just call for heating, blending and serving, which is one of the joys of keto cooking!) but it looks so pretty and yummy that I really want to make it.
Even if you're not a fan of the holiday drink, there's something about the yummy scent of eggnog that gets you into the spirit of the season. Sure, you can get any number of commercial nogs, many of which are flavored with everything from peppermint to sugar cookie, but everyone knows that it's like chocolate chip cookies: homemade is always better.
From limoncello to summer shandy, it is the season of the lemon! The season's almost gone, and while you can pretty much get limoncello year-round, if you are enjoying fresh lemony cocktails, now is the time to make your favorites before fall descends. Don't have a favorite yet? Try any one of these!
One of my best friends is having us over for a barbecue on Friday and I'd like to bring something to drink that's fun but affordable AND portable. I do enjoy making punch (spiked or otherwise) but I always do the sherbert punch that's quite messy and not at all portable. You can pack the ingredients and put it together at the event itself, but it just takes so much longer. I'd like to keep cleanup to a minimum!
When it comes to summer, there's a lot to love. From longer days to time off with friends and family, it's the favorite time of year for many people. One of the best things about the hot season is the number of fruity drinks that are available! With so much fruit in season, it's a great time of year to enjoy fruity beverages.
If you're a mimosa drinker, you may love the French 75 cocktail. It's quite similar but it's also got a tasty twist! A mixture of gin, sugar, lemon juice and champagne, it's on the stronger side, making it the perfect choice if you're looking to really unwind at brunch! The drink also has an elegant history of being created in Paris during World War I. The kick in the beverage was said to be akin to being hit by a French 75mm field gun, hence the name.
Over the weekend, I attempted to make some prosecco infused with plums and thyme simple syrup. Oh, was it a disaster. I'm thinking that I just bought the wrong bubbly (hopefully that was it), but maybe it's also just not the drink for me. My question is, do you have a great recipe for a fruity drink infusion that you can share?
