Mint Julep Lemonade

Mint Julep Lemonade.  Hot summer days and nights are perfect for this non alcoholic Mint Julep Lemonade.  If you have ever grown your own mint,  you know what I didn’t, that mint grows everywhere and anywhere and multiplies.  If you ignore it, don’t water it regularly, don’t prune it–doesn’t matter.  It grows.  With the abundant harvest of mint that I had, I decided that it was time to make a light, tangy refreshing pitcher of lemonade, and kicked it up a notch with the mint.  Try it for yourself–it will be a favorite for summer sweet drinks.

Super Alkaline Cherry Smoothie

Super Alkaline Cherry Smoothie.  Cherries are in season, so it is time to make all the deliciousness possible with these beautiful red fruits.  To make the smoothie as nutritious as possible, I look to the list of alkaline foods, and choose several to enhance the cherries.  Adding almond milk, kiwi, cashews, fresh grown kale, beets and almond milk, I then mix up some magic.  Try it!  Vegan, gluten free and diary free.

Creamy Chai Latte

Creamy Chai Latte is a perfect combination of spicy and sweet, and it is so silky, creamy and delicious.  There is nothing better than homemade.   Homemade from scratch food that is prepared with fresh ingredients is the best.  The same goes for candles, body scrubs, beauty products that you make without preservatives, chemicals or additives.   You can find Chai Latte at any coffee shop, but unfortunately, some are made with pre-made mixes that have preservatives or additives.  When you make your own Creamy Chai Latte, your spices are fresh and flavorful.  Most importantly, your latte is not packed with sugar, but has a light sweetness from the maple syrup.  Sit down, relax and indulge yourself.  Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
