Much like a hot mugful of coffee gets me out of bed in the morning, a chilled glass of cold brew can keep me from crashing back into bed during that midday slump. The best part about this cold brew? You can literally make it in your sleep.
This cocktail gently whispers “summer” to me. It’s a little sweet, herbaceous, has a nice bite of ginger, and is gently bubbly. It’s the color of a summer dusk, and it’s so refreshing on a hot day.
If you’re wondering what “Black Forest” means, then I have a cake to introduce you to. A Black Forest Cake is chocolate-covered cherries in cake form: chocolate cake, cherries, and whipped cream. This Black Forest Protein Smoothie was inspired by that cake, and I love it because it seriously tastes like dessert… BUT IT’S BREAKFAST!
I was so happy to see how much love my Apple Carrot + Ginger Juice post got! Since so many people were thirsty for more, I’ve got another freshly-squeezed recipe for you today. My Green Juice may not sweet, but it’s bursting with nutrients and flavor. This isn’t your average celery juice, and that’s exactly why I love it.
This winter, we went hard on hot cocoa. One of our favorites was this very grownup version with sweet and salty butterscotch flavored with rum… yum!
Making your own juice doesn’t have to be complicated or hard. It’s fun to experiment and see what flavor combinations work and to incorporate fresh produce into your diet. This is one of our go-to juices. It’s packed with vitamin c, is naturally sweet, and has a little spice to it.
I’ve always been a very on the go person, and caffeine is my favorite food group, so this Matcha Protein Smoothie is perfect for me. This smoothie has it all — fruit, protein, a touch of sweetness from the honey, and a jolt of caffeine from the matcha.
When I’m home on a hot summer day and looking to relax and cool down, I want something no-fuss or frills. I want refreshing. I want light. I want fruity and botanical. I want is quick, and I want it while sitting in front of the AC or on the patio. These drinks are far from new and inventive. They are my go-to summer sips because they’re classics, but with my fresh take on them. They’re botanical, fruity, and bright, and I hope you enjoy!
