CHIA HYDRATOR

CHIA HYDRATOR

This is my go-to drink after swimming. It rehydrates me, replenishes my electrolytes, and gives me some protein and fiber from the chia seeds. Chia seeds have so many health benefits and this is a nice way of getting them into your diet.

CHIA LEMONADE

CHIA LEMONADE

Chia lemonade, also known as chia fresca, is lemonade with chia seeds for added benefits. Refreshing, full of fiber and perfect for hot summer days. So how is mine different from your average lemonade? I use stevia for sweetness which makes this sugar-free. Most lemonades […]

SPICED ICED TEA

SPICED ICED TEA

This is by far my favourite iced tea. It’s almost like to dessert. It’s sweet and creamy with all these wonderful spices infused into it. I look forward to making this in the summer, but can be savoured anytime of the year.

LIMONCELLO THYME COCKTAIL

LIMONCELLO THYME COCKTAIL

When I went to Capri I had a limoncello spritzer. This was such a nice refreshing drink. All it was was limoncello and sparkling water. I love to put an herbal note in my cocktails and make them a little stronger. So adding vodka and […]

GRAPEFRUIT THYME BELLINI

GRAPEFRUIT THYME BELLINI

This drink take a little bit a prep work, but it’s easy to assemble and a crowd pleaser. Did I mention it’s also delicious? Sweet, sour, and boozy, with bubbles, what more could you want?

RASPBERRY MINT MOSCATO COCKTAIL

RASPBERRY MINT MOSCATO COCKTAIL

I first made this as the signature cocktail at my cousin’s bachelorette party. It was a mix of a cocktail and dessert and looked really pretty. Everyone loved it.

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 jazzed […]

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 to the Mexican version. You can even spike it with Rumchata or […]
