Dairy-Free, Protein-Rich “Magical” Matcha Tea Latte (+ the secret ingredient to making any drink creamy & frothy without milk)

Dairy-Free Matcha Latte 3

I’m an unabashed one-a-day coffee drinker and have been, off and on, for over 15 years. I’ve always taken it with a little sweetener and most importantly, a liberal pour of cream. (These days it’s dairy-free cream but still…) In addition to the aroma, warmth and pick-me-up, my morning coffee ritual is all about comfort and […]

Creamier Mexican Chocolate Frosty (dairy-free, paleo & vegan)

If we can rely on the weather forecaster (and let’s cross our fingers that we can… for once), much of this week is going to feel like summer in June around here! Perfect, warm, sun-drenched days and I couldn’t be happier to get an extra dose of Vitamin D before the snow starts to fly and […]

I also love it when those drinks are easy and relatively cheap to make at home, supremely healthy and packed with antioxidants and […]

Lazy Girl’s Ginger Lemonade

Lazy Girl's Ginger Lemonade

This quintessential summer bevvy is a bit like me: refreshing, tart and spicy. Okay, probably more tart than anything! There’s nothing that seems to quench the thirst better than lemonade on a hot summer day, am I right? Except maybe a frosty cold b-e-e-r, but we’ll save that for another day. I’ve had homemade lemonade […]

Lean, Mean Peaches & Green Smoothie

Peaches & Green Smoothie

Don’t be fooled by this smoothie’s rather innocent-looking pale green hue. There’s a lot more nutrition under the hood than this picture might have you believe. You see, this smoothie is a lean, mean, brain-boosting, fat-busting smoothie of surprising proportions. Unlike the majority of smoothies many of us make, this one is not very sweet. […]

Couples Hazelnut Hot Cocoa (dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free)

On those days when you’re apt to sing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside…”, enjoy this hot, health-promoting beverage to heat your insides from head to toe! It’s rich, creamy cocoa with a hint of the hazelnut flavour that made Nutella famous and perfectly sized for you and a loved one. Here are a few reasons to […]
