ROSEMARY LIMONCELLO SPRITZER

ROSEMARY LIMONCELLO SPRITZER

One of my favourite things to do is add herbal infusions into my cocktails. Last summer I went to Capri and they have this drink you can get all over the island. It was limoncello and soda water over ice. It was a nice refreshing […]

MANGO GINGER MINT SMOOTHIES

MANGO GINGER MINT SMOOTHIES

I recently started an herb garden so I have been adding herbs to everything. The mint in this smoothie gives it a freshness, and mixed with the creamy kefir and mango and a bit of ginger for spice, what you get is the perfect summer […]

APPLE JUICE

APPLE JUICE

  The first cold-press juice I ever had was at Urban Herbivore. I was doing these classes across the street from them and after one sip of their apple-lemon juice I was hooked. I swapped out my coffee for this sweet concoction every morning.  I […]

HORACHATA

HORACHATA

  Horachata is a rice milk drink popular in South America and Mexico. Each country has their own version but the base is always rice milk. This recipe is quick and easy and closer t0 the mexican version. You can even spike it with Rumchata […]

ELECTRIC ORANGE JUICE

ELECTRIC ORANGE JUICE

  Okay, I know the filters in this photo clearly play a part in the electric look of the juice, but so does the ginger. This orange juice is packed with vitamins and a great pick-me-up for that mid-day hump. It is pulpy, so if […]

DANDELION TEA LATTE

DANDELION TEA LATTE

  I love coffee, but this is a nice caffeine-free alternative. I use dandy blend. It tastes like instant coffee that’s a bit malty. This latte is sweet and creamy and the perfect caffeine-free beverage. 1 1/2 teaspoons dandy blend 1/2 cup water 1 1/2 […]

MINT TEA

MINT TEA

  The first time I had mint tea was in a hammam in Paris. While you wait in a room that looks like something out of Arabian Nights for your massage, they give you this sweet, fragrant tea to sip on. The traditional tea is […]

GREEN JUICE

GREEN JUICE

  I recently started juicing and this is my favourite. I hate cucumbers and it seems every green juice on the market has this gag-worthy vegetable in it. Yes, I know my repulsion to cucumbers is bordering crazy since I tell everyone I’m allergic to […]

LEMON SODA

LEMON SODA

  I was a big soda drinker a few years back. I sadly admit I was drinking at least one diet soda a day. Back then, I thought if it were calorie-free or sugar-free then it was fine. I now know better and if I’m […]

GREEN SMOOTHIE

GREEN SMOOTHIE

  Smoothies are my favourite everyday dessert. I use kefir for its probiotic properties. It’s a fermented milk drink that has lots of good bacteria. Coconut oil has so many health benefits and when I first heard of adding it to a smoothie, I was […]
