Peach Banana and Pomegranate Smoothie

Pomegranate juice is very high in antioxidants, and has been shown to be even higher amounts of antioxidants than green tea and red wine. This makes it a healthy addition to smoothies. In this smoothie recipe, I use fresh peach slices, banana, oats and pomegranate juice. Adding juice to smoothies boosts the sugar content, so I like to dilute the juice 50:50 with water. Peach Banana and Pomegranate Smoothie Ingredients 1/2 cup pomegranate juice 1 banana 1 peach, pitted and […]

Banana Hot Cocoa

My favorite drink on a cool night is hot cocoa. The other day I had the idea of blending a banana with cocoa powder, milk and cinnamon, and warming it up in a pot. I call it, banana hot cocoa! It came out delicious. I love how the banana adds sweetness naturally to this hot cocoa drink. No extra sugar is needed. It also thickens it up, making it nice and creamy. Serve this drink hot right from the pot, […]

Brazilian Lemonade

It is a great mystery why this special Brazilian drink is called Brazilian “lemonade” when it is actually made with limes. Maybe somewhere along the way people decided limes taste better in the recipe than lemons, and didn’t bother to change the name. This “lemonade” is made with fresh lime juice and zest, with condensed milk to make it creamy. It is a special treat all year round! Brazilian Lemonade Recipe Ingredients 6 cups water 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup […]

Mandarin Smoothie

There is something about this warming weather that has me craving cold, citrus drinks. The other day my coworker brought in an orange smoothie from Jamba Juice, and it inspired me to make this mandarin smoothie from scratch at home with my Magic Bullet. This mandarin smoothie is incredibly refreshing, and made with simple, delicious ingredients. It is important to freeze the mandarin slices ahead of time, which will make this smoothie slushy after you blend all of the ingredients […]

These flavors combined with carbonation create a refreshing drink suitable for any special occasion. Pomegranate Mint Spritzer Recipe Ingredients 2 cups […]

Eiskaffee (Iced Coffee)

  Normally when you ask for an iced coffee at a cafe, you get a cup of coffee with ice cubes in it plus or minus milk.

I especially like to add ice cream to my iced coffee on really hot days, […]
