What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Not one but two frozen strawberry concoctions. Not many milkshakes beat a delicious, well-made strawberry milkshake, and this one my husband makes is one of my favorites. Remember, the better the ingredients, the better the result. Use delicious ice cream, ripe, sweet strawberries and high quality vanilla extract. […]
adapted from: Serious Eats makes: 1 mocktail In my opinion it’s hard to beat a well made cocktail, especially this time of year when you can muddle seasonal fruits and herbs for drinks like caipirinhas, smashes, and mojitos.

I love the bit of spice that the nutmeg brings. I use unsweetened almond milk, as this shake has plenty of natural sugar. […]
This is a nice treat to have for breakfast, for a snack, or for dessert when you are trying to stay away from the sugary goodies! It is deliciously filling. I prefer to use frozen bananas, so that the drink is nice and cold like a smoothie. I usually buy a bunch of bananas, let […]
