Frozen Mocha with Greens

While I’m loving that it’s fall…I have to face reality.  The calendar season does not dictate the weather here.  It’s heading back into the 90s this week and I’m wanting a cold drink.  A fun one.  But I’m trying to be healthy.  What’s a girl to do?  The struggle is real.     This is…

This drink.  Today is the first day of fall and this drink is what I’m loving. The ‘dirty chai’ refers to the fact that there’s both coffee and chai tea in there.  Lots of spices that whisper fall, a hint of sweetness, and comforting warmth in a cup. It starts with milk.  I use almond…

Hot cocoa is comfort food ya know.  And there are soooooo many ways to jazz it up, not that it needs jazzing up.  But sometimes you’re just walking through Trader Joes and see Bourbon Vanilla Extract and you think, that’d make a great whipped cream for hot cocoa!

Pomegranate Mocha
