Apple Pie Breakfast Smoothie

Apple Pie Breakfast Smoothie

This Apple Pie Breakfast Smoothie blends sweet and tart apple flavors with warm, fall spices and rich, buttery pecans for that fresh-baked apple pie flavor. Soft medjool dates lend just a hint of sweetness and light, caramel goodness, and the added almond milk keeps the texture smooth and creamy.

Warming Winter White (Spiced Wine with Orange)

Warming Winter White (Spiced Wine with Orange)

Now, I wouldn’t want to send you into the new year without a delicious drink in hand, and since it appears the high will remain in the single digits for the next several days, I figured a hot drink would help warm us all up a bit. Since the spices and oranges lend this drink its flavor, you don’t need to use top dollar wines. In fact, if you’ve got a lower quality bottle of sweet (or sweet-ish) white around, let this recipe give it new life!

Mango Pina Colada Smoothie

Mango Pina Colada Smoothie

Despite the fact that the first true day of autumn still lies a couple weeks away, the shift in seasons is already palpable. While I adore fall (it’s my favorite season) and am absolutely ready for sweaters, hot cider, and pumpkin spice or apple cinnamon flavored everything, I’m not quite ready to let go of summer just yet. I’d like one more lazy, warm day at home with Cory and the cats, but since time moves only forward, I’ll instead make one more delicious, luscious summer smoothie to bid farewell to the season of warmth and sunshine.

Sangria Slush

Sangria Slush

As we bid farewell to summer, it seems only appropriate to remember the warm, relaxing season with a simple, tasty sangria… well, that and I found a bottle of super cheap white wine in the refrigerator downstairs from some abandoned and now forgotten recipe. So here you go, a super simple way to rescue that cheap, lonely bottle in your fridge, making it both drinkable and delicious!

Pineapple Berry Smoothie

Filled with summer berries, sweetened only with fruit and coconut water, and with a little zing from fresh, juicy pineapple, this smoothie makes an easy, healthy breakfast on the go! Perfect for kids and teens too, this clean eating smoothie comes together quickly or can be prepped ahead and stored in fridge or freezer until ready to blend!

Habanero-Infused Whiskey with Mango and Lime

Habanero-Infused Whiskey with Mango and Lime

Crown Royal Whiskey gets quick-infused with habanero to add a subtle kick, and then mango nectar is added to accentuate the habanero’s sweetness. The drink is rounded out with lime juice and a few drops of bitters. Guard it closely, or make a pitcher because your friends might just steal it!

Mayan Mocha Smoothie (Coffee & Chocolate)

Mayan Mocha Smoothie (Coffee & Chocolate)

You simply must try this coffee-drenched smoothie filled with healthy chocolate, spicy cinnamon, and a subtle kick of heat from cayenne. As coffee addicts with busy schedules, creating a caffeinated breakfast on-the-go seemed the perfect solution to our frequently chaotic mornings. This also makes a delightful afternoon pick-me-up for those days when one (or two… or three-we don’t judge) cups of coffee simply won’t cut it.
