Triple Berry Spinach Smoothie

I drink a smoothie for breakfast almost every morning so I’m always looking to switch things up a bit. This smoothie is SO. FREAKISHLY. GOOD. Seriously. SO. GOOD. It’s the perfect smoothie recipe for the season as we head out of fresh berries and toward good smoothies that utilize frozen fruit. This smoothie features a mixture of frozen raspberries, blackberries and blueberries that I found at my local Costco. If you are like Famous Julie or Martha Stewart you’ve probably gro

Coconut Vanilla Smoothie

This smoothie is my newest obsession. Don’t ask me why there is a pineapple in the back of this picture… There are actually no pineapples in this smoothie. I just thought it looked good. But, if you like coconut, and creaminess and America, you will love this smoothie. Drinking it is like taking a virtual trip to the Caribbean or something. I actually don’t know. I don’t think I’ve ever actually been to the Caribbean, but I’m just guessing based on pictures from my friend’s a

Pineapple Coconut Smoothie

Have you ever heard of the smoothie joint named, “Orange Peel?” They make the best smoothies I’ve ever had from any smoothie establishment. My new goal in life is to make smoothies as good as theirs.And… not to toot my own horn, but I’m getting pretty dang good. Good part about it is that I never really tire of smoothie testing. I could drink one everyday for the remainder of my life and be perfectly happy. If that was a profession I would be totally set. Smoothie drinker/

Recipes for the Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July, tomorrow! I thought today would be a good day to remind you of some recipes that will be a hit at your Fourth of July BBQ. What shall we start with? Drinks! This Cucumber Punch is easy to throw together and super refreshing on a hot summer day. By far the most popular recipe on the blog. This Brazilian Lemonade will seriously blow you and your guests away. A few mushrooms, a few onions and a little bit of A.1. makes these sirloin burgers extra special. G

Raspberry Limeade

Remember how I told you that I’ve been obsessed with raspberries lately and I’ve been putting them into everything? I was seriously not joking around. I am indulging in the full bounty of summer this year. I just want to bury my face in a big pile of raspberries at all waking moments of the day. So… If I’m being 100% honest with myself here, this is kind of a cheater recipe. This is a twist on one of the most popular recipes on my blog but it was so good that it was worthy of

Cucumber Punch

I know, I know. The name of this drink sounds totally weird. Cucumbers? In my punch? Don’t cucumbers belong in salads? Or on my eyes? Well, trust me. This drink is so good that all the cucumbers you aren’t using on your eyeballs belong in this drink. They add the most crisp, refreshing hint that it makes me want to put cucumbers in all of my drinks. Oh, and who knew that a cucumber could dress up the side of a glass like that? *whistle whistle* Sorry. I have an inappropriate

Protein Packed Orange Julius

This is what I have for breakfast almost every morning and I STILL crave it every day. Some may call it a habit, but those people would be wrong. I crave it every morning because it is DANG delicious. I crave it every morning because it is healthy. I crave it every morning because it is SO easy to whip together. It’s something I look forward to having and it keeps me full for hours. Sometimes I add spinach to it and get my greens in for the day, but mostly I just love my plai

Strawberry Mint Lemonade

I’m a fan of lemonade. Especially strawberry lemonade. This drink just screams summer, especially since I used the strawberries that I bought from the farmer’s market. I made it easy and used lemonade from the store, but it could become even better if you made your own homemade fresh squeezed lemonade. But, this momma has had a crazy busy week, so store-bought lemonade just had to do the trick. And oh boy… did it do the trick. Strawberry Mint Lemonade 2016-01-22 15:18:09 A re

Brazilian Lemonade

[showad block=2] DRANK. I never understood why the name of this drink is Brazilian Lemonade because there are approximately ZERO lemons in it. Give or take. Why isn’t it named Brazilian Limeade, you ask? Just drink it, and I swear it won’t even matter anymore. This drink could be named poopoo lemonade and I wouldn’t even question it after trying it. Okay, I might be a little more hesitant, but still. It is THE BEST. I got this recipe from Our Best Bites, and it has become a f
