Pink Berry Lime Smoothie

If it’s as cold where you live as it is here in Canada, I’m sure the last thing you want is a smoothie. Believe me though, this berry lime smoothie is worth freezing for. If you’re like me and you sometimes crave a smoothie during winter, just make yourself cozy in a pile of blankets (maybe next to a fire place) and enjoy it. This smoothie is the result of a mid-winter smoothie craving and tons ripe avocados that desperately needed to be used. Honestly, I’m not sure why I keep buying avocados from Costco. They’re much cheaper, but I always end up with either 6 hard avocados or 6 overly ripe avocados at the same time. Perfectly ripe avocados, ready to use when you want them. That&#8217…

Vegan Cashew Eggnog (Sugar-Free)

I hope you’re starting to get in the holiday spirit because I have a delicious vegan cashew eggnog for you guys today! Where do you stand on traditional eggnog? Do you like it or not? Growing up, I was obsessed with it and so was my whole family. As soon as eggnog would come out at the store, my mom would buy a few cartons and we’d go through all of it within days. We were all eggnog lovers. It’s only later that I realized that not everyone is as obsessed with this sweet milk as we are. Some say it’s sickeningly sweet. I didn’t understand them… Until now. I will admit, it’s been 4 years since I’ve had eggnog (since I stopped eating added…

Soothing Lemon Ginger Tea + Coffee Break

Welcome to my second coffee break post! In these posts, I’ll be sharing a simple drink recipe I’m enjoying, along with a life update and other things I’m loving at the moment. For this coffee break post, I’m sharing a tea I’ve been making a lot lately – A soothing lemon ginger tea with turmeric. This is my go-to drink for when I’m feeling sick or when my digestion is bothering me. It feels great on my stomach and it helps me hydrate when I have a cold. Not to mention the ginger, which could help with nausea. This tea is so basic, that I actually hesitated sharing it. In the end though, I decided that it was a good addition to an already busy coffee break post, plus, others may find it helpful…

Cinnamon Butterbeer Latte

This is how I intend to celebrate Halloween this year: Watching Harry Potter and drinking a cinnamon butterbeer latte. If it wasn’t obvious before, it is now. I love everything Harry Potter. Proof: I have Harry Potter wands in my bedroom that Shaun and I got as a gift from his father. I have two Harry potter decorations on my walls (one with the deathly hallows symbol and the other is a papier-mâché on a canvas using pages of an old Harry Potter book). And of course I read the books and watched the movies countless times. So yes, I love the series and I love it even more this time of year. I’m not sure why, but there’s something about the cozy months that makes me crave those books. Whether or not you like…

Sugar-Free Pumpkin Spice Latte

Welcoming the first week of fall with the healthiest sugar-free pumpkin spice latte. When I think of a cozy fall drink, I immediately think of the pumpkin spice latte… Not because I drink it each year (I drank it a few times before I stopped eating added sugar), but because as soon as September arrives, pumpkin spice lattes are everywhere. The thing is though, they’re typically loaded with sugar, which is why I needed to find a way to make mine at home. So that’s what I did. As I discovered last year, you can blend cashews and coffee together to make the most delicious and creamy drink. Since then, I’ve been experimenting with many cozy drinks, including peanut butter hot chocolate, chai latte, peppermint mocha and mint matcha latte. Now I…
