Golden Pineapple + Herb Smoothie

I went through a phase where I literally drank a smoothie every single day, and thus it left me feeling like I’d never want a smoothie again. Slowly, however, my smoothie taste buds are returning; and at the right time I’d say because as it gets warmer smoothies are often my breakfast of choice — with a couple of hardboiled eggs — or my favorite post workout snack. A long standing struggle with smoothie making…

Bulleit Bourbon w/ Basil + Grapefruit

The temperature is rising and so are my cravings for refreshing home-crafted cocktails. 2 years ago I would’ve cringed at the idea of bourbon, but after being introduced to old fashioned’s by my fiancé when we first started dating, I developed a pallet for a good bourbon, on the rocks even. We often make old fashioned’s at home, but this past weekend we strayed from the standard and experimented with the grapefruit and bourbon combination.…

Adaptogenic Matcha Latte

Have you tried Matcha? What about Adaptogens? Have you heard of adaptogens? While 80 percent of the time I believe in wellness by means of simplicity, sometimes I do like to enjoy some of the extra bits. While there isn’t any thing fancy about normal green tea, Matcha green tea has become increasingly popular and trendy in recent years. Matcha has many reported benefits, the main one being its super concentrated dose of antioxidants in…

Roseberry Mule

Last weekend was the official start of the holiday season for Corey and I! We broke in our new Christmas Pj’s, put on some Christmas vinyl, and decorated the apartment/tree. We’ve already started a tradition of decorating the house during the day, then going out for dinner before returning home to watch the Grinch, make festive drinks, and decorate the tree. Corey and I have taken an interest in homemade mixology over the last year.…

Honey Mocha Latte

Hello fellow coffee fiends — Im back with another latte recipe! This recipe is loaded with super food goodies like raw cacao, maca, cinnamon and raw honey. The collagen peptides are completely optional, but they do contribute to the frothiness and the protein content of the coffee. Raw cacao is chocolatey and full of antioxidants, fiber, and magnesium — all things that do wonders for the body. This took just a few minutes to whip…

Cinnamon Banana Butternut Smoothie

It’s certainly been a bit too long since my last post. My new job has begun and needless to say, hobbies quickly took a backseat spot in my life last week. Work will be much smoother and consistent in a few weeks once the school year begins but for now I am working at the mercy of the scattered schedules of fall sport preseason practices. This morning I left for work at about 6:15 and…

Almond Milk

Now that I have a hand-me-down professional grade blender (thank you mom!) I decided I want to start making my own almond (and soon cashew) milk. I have been drinking alternative milks for years now, not because I have an intolerance, but because I never really liked the taste of regular milk. My fiancé though, does have a lactose intolerance; so that makes it a no-brainer for us to use non-dairy items in our home. There…
