Strawberry Peach Smoothie

Rating: Unrated
Quick, delicious and refreshing on a hot day. If you don't have fresh strawberries or peaches, you can substitute with frozen ones.

Nutella Hot Chocolate

Rich, almost sinful hot chocolate!

Hot Banana Milkshake

Rating: Unrated
Me and my boyfriend love to drink it on cold winter days in front of the fireplace.

Milk Banana Smoothie

Rating: Unrated
Low fat, no-sugar-added milk banana smoothie.

Kale Orange Banana Smoothie

Rating: Unrated
Sometimes it tastes like Fruit Loops® cereal, but, of course, this is actually good for you. My 14-month-old loves this for breakfast. Furthermore, he can feed himself (with a sippy cup) while I make breakfast and lunch for the older kids. The texture is similar to pudding. If runnier texture is desired, add ice or milk.

Amy's Cucumber Lemonade

Rating: Unrated
Refreshing summer sipping drink. I had this drink at a local restaurant and liked it so much I had to re-invent it in my own kitchen. Serve over ice.

Elvis Smoothie (Almond and Banana)

Rating: Unrated
This is what Elvis would drink if he were alive and on a health kick! It's based off his love for the peanut butter and banana, but this has some substitutions and additions. Freeze the bananas the night before so that they take the place of the ice. If you add enough almond butter, this can taste exactly like banana bread. Or if you add chocolate or espresso, it tastes like bananas dipped in chocolate fondue. This can easily be a dessert smoothie!!

Peppermint Martini

Rating: Unrated
Martini for the Christmas party-animal/enthusiast. Garnish with a candy cane.

Chai Tea Latte

Rating: Unrated
This is really similar to the brand Oregon® Chai. Simply delicious either hot or iced! This will save you more money than buying the chai. In India, each family has their own way of making it, so you should experiment to find your favorite blend.

Breakfast Zinger Juice

Rating: Unrated
This is a delicious, cleansing juice that's great in the morning. Great way to kick start your day, while getting necessary vitamins.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Rating: Unrated
It is so refreshing and it's sweet and tasty.

Starbucks® Caramel Frappuccino Copycat Recipe

Rating: Unrated
This is my copycat version of the popular Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino®! Top each glass with whipped cream and drizzle additional caramel over the whipped cream. Serve with a straw. Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator!

Inspiration and Ideas

Mezcal Paloma

A paloma is traditionally made with tequila, grapefruit juice, and lime, but this version uses mezcal instead of tequila for a nice smoky twist! The smoke flavor is due to the underground ovens filled with volcanic rock, coal and wood that are used to cook the agave to produce the mezcal. I like to rim the glass with coarse smoked salt or black salt, but feel free to use regular kosher salt.

All Natural Strawberry Lemonade

Rating: Unrated
This is a tart, tasty lemonade with a sweet kick, perfect for the cook with garden access during the summer months. You'll need a blender with a 'puree' or 'high pulse' setting. Garnish with any leftover strawberries.

State Fair Lemonade

Rating: Unrated

I'm very excited to be showing you how to make real, authentic, vintage lemonade--the kind you might enjoy on a hot summer day at one of those stands at the state fair. Most of us make lemonade just out of lemon juice, but as you may know, the oils in the lemon peel contain a tremendous amount of flavor, and once you drink this, you won't want to go back to drinking it how you used to.
