Kiwi Colada

It’s the middle of the week, who wouldn’t want a nice drink to relax with. This is a super refreshing drink that I made without alcohol but you could add some rum which is what the recipe actually calls for. Based on the name, you can tell that this is a play on a pina…

Mezcal Meltdown

I finished last week with a drink and we are starting now with a drink too! This is actually the first cocktail I’m making from this cookbook. The drink is called a Mezcal Meltdown. It has pineapple juice, lime juice and jalapeno so it’s a mix of sweet, sour and spicy. From the name, the…

Agua Fresca

I am finishing off the week with a drink because who doesn’t want a nice refreshing beverage to celebrate the weekend! There were actually a couple other drink recipes before this one but I skipped them due to personal preferences. This is agua fresca which just means fresh water (or cool water). It is made…

Pineapple Cucumber Slushie

Who doesn’t love a cold beverage? They are perfect to keep cool in the summer, especially with the recent heat wave that has impacted many areas. This is the Pineapple-Cucumber Slushie from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I haven’t had a slushie in so long, I used to get them at the gas station when I…

Bubble Tea (Attempt #2)

A little while back, I attempted to make my own bubble tea. The milk tea portion was obviously delicious but the actual tapioca pearls were another story. They weren’t horrible but they just were not the texture they are supposed to be and the dough was not fully cooperating. I still had leftover tapioca starch…

Summer Berry Smoothie

I LOVE summer drinks. When you’re sitting outside, it’s so nice to have a cold drink in hand. There are many directions you can go, and smoothies are definitely one of the healthier ones. Smoothies are perfect for any day and you can pack them with any combination of your favourite fruits (or even some…

Hot Chocolate

It’s March which means winter is technically coming to an end very soon. But until the weather gets warmer, I will still drink lots of hot beverages. In the winter, when I want a hot drink, I will usually make myself some tea. So that’s what I will choose about 90% of the time. But…

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…
