Strawberry Watermelon Agua Fresca

Strawberry Watermelon Agua Fresca

Agua fresca is a fresh fruit-based drink that is very popular in Mexico. They’re typically made by mashing or pureeing fruit such as strawberries or melon and then thinning the mixture out with juice or water until it has a light, drinkable consistency and is easy to sip through a straw. They’re lightly sweetened, both to highlight the sweetness of the fruit to ensure that ... Read More »

Homemade Strawberry Julius

Homemade Strawberry Julius

I’m definitely awash in strawberries this summer – but I’m not going to complain about that any time soon. I love eating strawberries when they’re at their peak, and I also love the opportunity to incorporate them into all kinds of different recipes. With more strawberries than I knew what to do with in my kitchen then other day, I decided to give a Homemade ... Read More »

Decadent Chocolate Milkshake

Chocolate Milkshake

I usually keep my milkshakes nice and simple. Ice cream, milk, and a few extra fruits or syrups for flavoring, depending on what I’m in the mood for. Sometimes, however, I feel like making something a bit more decadent and I’ll use heavy cream instead of milk. I wouldn’t do it if I had a milkshake every day (unless I really needed the extra calories), ... Read More »

Tropical Pineapple Coconut Banana Smoothie

Tropical Pineapple Coconut Banana Smoothie

It doesn’t take much to put me in the mood to make some smoothies. A warm day and the motivation to pull out the blender are all I really need – and the warmer the day, the more likely I am to want to pull out that blender! Once it’s out, of course, you still need to figure out what to throw in there. Fortunately, ... Read More »

Double Chocolate Peppermint Mocha

Double Chocolate Peppermint Mocha

Around Christmas time, I tend to have a surplus of peppermint candy canes lying around. They also last well into the new year because they keep very well (and go on sale after the holidays!). I like this about candy canes because if you’re a fan of peppermint, they make fantastic coffee stirs and it’s nice to have them around to infuse a little flavor ... Read More »

Easy Homemade Eggnog (cooked)

Homemade Eggnog

I like eggnog, but I’m not a big fan of most store-bought eggnogs, even “organic” ‘nogs from natural foods stores. I find that many of them have an overly strong nutmeg flavor, and others are so thick that they verge on being pudding. I like eggnog to be light and refreshing, with flavor from all the ingredients in it. Eggnog is made from milk and ... Read More »

Caramel Apple Cider

Spiced Apple Cider

Once you’ve made some Spiced Apple Cider, or if you simply happen to have a bottle of storebought cider in the back of the fridge, it is a snap to make one of my favorite wintertime drinks, Caramel Apple Cider. I was first turned onto this drink on a visit to Starbucks, where it is generally available year-round but is often featured on the menu ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

I generally like my milkshakes in classic flavors like vanilla, strawberry and chocolate, with the former two being slightly favored over the latter. When you have a really good milkshake, these flavors really shine. But as with all things, variety is nice, too, and as good as a plain vanilla milkshake is, it’s nice to be able to dress it up a bit with other ... Read More »
