The Very Best Breakfast Oatmeal Smoothie

A Breakfast Smoothie that not only tastes good but that will actually keep you satisfied and full. My favorite breakfast on the go.

The Very Best Breakfast Oatmeal Smoothie

I love smoothies. Especially since they’re so refreshing, healthy, and super fast to prepare.

Smoothies used to be more of a snack for me. A way to crush my cravings for something sweet and to get extra nutrients in my body. I never thought that I could find a smoothie that could actually hold me over till lunch and wouldn’t have me reaching for a snack in between.

I happily stand corrected.

My mornings have been completely changed. Before this smoothie came along, not much could motivate me to get out of bed in the morning. Now I can’t get up fast enough and hit up my blender as soon as I open my eyes. I never thought I’d say that I’m excited about breakfasts.

Again, this smoothie is rocking my world. [Read more…]

Skinny Mint Chocolate Chip Shake

For everyone that loves mint-flavored things. This Skinny Mint Chocolate Chip Shake is a must!

I told you mint was having a moment. So much so that I ate way too many of these cookies and needed to find a way to liquefy my addiction. Because there’s nothing better than munching on a mint chocolate chip cookie while enjoying a minty shake at the same time. Obsession at its finest, ha.

But just in case I run out of my cookie stash and can’t be bothered to whip up a new batch, I am more than satisfied with the shake itself. My blender has become my new best friend. It’s the fastest, freshest and healthiest way to get my fix and I cannot stop.

But when you find something that’s as delicious as this, can you blame me? Alright, let me tell you more! [Read more…]

Hey Everyone!

How did you spend your Christmas? I sure hope everyone of you had a wonderful time. I think it’s safe to say that our time off can be best described with one word: FAMILY. Not only did we devour some delicious food and shared plenty of gifts, but countless hours were spent around the dining room table playing Settlers of Catan. Christmas was everything we hoped it would be and so much more.

Now onto welcoming a new year and dealing with all things winter.

Believe it or not, but this year we didn’t have a white Christmas. Our Winter Wonderland happened exactly 2 days later and the temps started to drop lower than they had so far. And it has only just begun…

My favorite activities already involve taking a long hot shower, sipping tea and snuggling my hubby. Not too shabby if you ask me ;).

Plus, I’ve discovered a new hot drink I can’t seem to get enough of – Spiced Orange Hot Chocolate. Mmmmm! [Read more…]

Blackberry Sage Lemonade Sparklers

 Oh yeah. We are making sparkly lemonade today. Using beautiful blackberries and one of my favorite herbs – Sage. Can you say refreshingly delicious!?

This week was full of rainy days and some huge storms. I can’t even count how many times I was woken up by thunder, lightning or both these last couple of days. The hubby told me yesterday morning that I’ve been shushing the storms during my sleep with an old, grumpy voice that he didn’t know existed. I’m a pretty calm sleeper and usually I am the one putting up with Adam’s interesting sleeping behavior, but I guess stormy weather brings out my dark side – lol.

It’s been crazy, but I secretly love watching another storm roll in and completely change the sky. It’s so awe-inspiring and beautiful. I could watch it over and over again.

The humidity levels have been out of control as well and while everyone is complaining about the sticky air, I am doing my happy dance. Because Blackberry Sage Sparklers are waiting in my fridge and they taste best when enjoyed on a hot, muggy day. [Read more…]

Watermelon Lime Slushie

Hello again! Can I just take a second to tell you how much I’m loving summer so far?! Few things are better than reading a good book outside, taking nightly walks with my hubby and enjoying some amazingly flavorful food. I just love going to the grocery store or farmer’s market and seeing all of the seasonal produce in full abundance. I can’t get enough.

I bought our first watermelon a few weeks back and happen to have picked the perfect one. Completely sweet and perfectly juicy. We couldn’t stop eating it.

With only a quarter of said watermelon left, I needed to try my hand at a homemade watermelon slushie. I’ve seen them all over the internets lately and knew immediately that I had to whip up my own version as soon as I came across the perfect watermelon.

I wanted ultimate sweetness without any added sugar and just had to add a couple of limes… subtle tartness with the sweet taste of watermelon and crushed ice make for one delectable slushie! [Read more…]
