Pumpkin Spice Latte

Hello hello and welcome to week 2 (of 2) of fall themed recipes on my blog! This week, my special ingredient is PUMPKIN which I think is the food most associated with the season. You already know how much I love squash but pumpkin sort of hits differently. It’s so creamy and sweet but a…

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Smoothie

Let me just start by saying I was never a huge smoothie drinker. I don’t know why, but I never really made myself smoothies nor did I really ever have the desire to do so. However, since making the cinnamon-almond green smoothie from the Love Real Food cookbook (link here), I’ve been on a smoothie…

Moscow Mules

I’m not a huge alcohol drinker, but I love a good cocktail once in a while. One of my favourite drinks (especially for the summer) is the moscow mule. If you don’t know, this is a pretty simple drink made with ginger beer*, vodka and lime juice – that’s it, only 3 ingredients. It is…

Oat Milk

I’m a fan of non-dairy milks. Many years ago, I went through a soy milk phase but that didn’t last too long. Then I discovered almond milk – I love the brand Earth’s Own (it’s a Canadian company) – this phase has been the past few years. But in between this current phase, this same…

Sick Days: Tea and Puzzles

Day 3: Berry Smoothie, Duo of Salads, and Rainbow Spring Rolls

Breakfast today also involved a blender. I made a smoothie with almond milk, oats and frozen blueberries, raspberries and coconut. I also added a little vanilla and honey for extra sweetness. I also ate a grapefruit. It was an alright breakfast, I just wish I had a better blender because there were so many seeds…

Fruit Smoothie

Here is officially my first post. I just made a super simple fruit smoothie with banana, mango, strawberries and almond milk. Super easy, nothing too complicated. You basically put everything in a blender and mix it all up! So good.
