Lola's Horchata Recipe. Peanut Butter Smoothie. Father’s Day weekend was busy like whoa for us this year.

Peanut Butter Smoothie

We hosted Andrew’s fifth birthday party on Saturday (more about that next week), and Sunday we spent the day at a lovely party celebrating Ben’s grandparents’ 65th wedding anniversary where I was the unofficial official photographer. So yes, lots of fun but overall exhausting. The kids and I gave Ben a few gifts but I didn’t get to cook or bake him any special Father’s Day treats. I made up for it though, by making him this peanut butter smoothie. Why is this smoothie worthy of a Father’s Day gift, you might ask? Oh, this smoothie.

Cake Batter Milkshake - Good Girl Gone Green

I found smoothies; milkshakes; juices; and finally a cake batter milkshake recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie. Please don’t tell my husband, most of the time I should be doing something a little more productive such as cleaning! If you have never seen Chocolate Cover Katie’s site or tried her recipes you are most definitely missing out. She transforms traditionally unhealthy foods to something deliciously healthy. Back to the cake batter- I was inspired by this simple milkshake recipe.

How to cook boba perfectly

YEARS. And I have finally found it. After hours of research and six packages of tapioca pearls, I can tell you the secret: It’s less about how you cook and more about what kind of boba you’re buying. I’m writing this post as a PSA for all likeminded non-Chinese-reading or -speaking bobaheads who have found the search for the perfect recipe as frustrating and inconclusive as I have. (My friends Sarah and Claire remind me that “boba” is slang for big breasts in Taiwan. As much as I tried, I was never able to recreate it at home, and I was too sheepish to ask the lady at Little Bean how they made theirs.

I saved every recipe I could find. I tried everything, but none of the methods were able to yield the texture that makes me crave boba. Thai Rooibos Iced Tea. Homemade Thai Iced Tea Recipe. ** we’ve updated the recipe below with an organic tea bag option along with coconut milk!

Homemade Thai Iced Tea Recipe

I had a “doh”/”ah-ha” moment last week when we were in Chicago to speak at BlogHer Viewfinder Day. During one of the conference days, we escaped out to lunch at a local Thai restaurant to explore more of the city’s culinary offerings. As always, we’ll try to order something new and different, and in the case of a Thai restaurant it normally involves a curry dish (only medium spicy, please! We’re not as young as we used to be), one noodle dish and an appetizer. On top of that, we always have to have Thai iced tea. Years ago, my Auntie Chung was telling me how easy it was to make Thai iced tea. I didn’t care too much about the profitability of Thai iced tea, but rather, more interested on how easily it was made and why we didn’t make it more often. Here you have it and all I can say is that if you’re a fan of Thai iced tea at $3.25 a pop, then you must make this now.

Chai Frozen Milkshakes Recipe

We harnessed both qualities for these refreshing milkshakes that should help you get through the muggiest summer afternoon. Chai tea bags are handy, but we suggest making your own sachet, using cheesecloth and a good-quality masala chai, a blend of loose-leaf black tea with whole spices such as cardamom pods, cloves, fennel seeds, black peppercorns, cinnamon, and dried ginger (one of our favorite blends is from The Chai Cart in San Francisco). 3 cups whole milk1/4 cup loose masala chai tied in cheesecloth, or 4 chai tea bags4 slices peeled fresh ginger12 whole black peppercorns1 cinnamon stick2 tablespoons sugarWhipped cream1 pint vanilla ice creamGround cinnamon, for garnish Place 4 tall glasses in the freezer to chill. Pour into the chilled glasses, top each with a big dollop of whipped cream, and dust with a little ground cinnamon.
