Nutella Milkshake. Have you been having Nutella withdrawals? I know I have! So I thought it was time for another Nutella recipe before someone got hurt (yes it’s that serious in my house LOL) I was lucky enough to get a 750ml jar of the luscious Nutella for Christmas and it was time to crack that bad boy open (I know such restraint right, don’t get too excited I have gone through 2 other smaller jars since Christmas tee hee)! I hadn’t had a frappe’ (pronounced fra-pay) in awhile and additionally I got a FAB stainless steel Cuisinart Immersion Blender for Christmas (Mwah, thanks Mom!) You might have seen in one of my previous Nutella Challenge Posts the evah so popular Frozen Nutella Pops.

Pssst, lean in…I’m working on a super deluxe recipe for World Nutella Day next month on February 5th. Baci! Frappe’ alla Nutella {Nutella Milkshake}What you’ll need:6 ounces whole milk 1 banana – sliced 1 tablespooon Nutella 1 teaspoon of pure Vanilla Extract 1/4 cup crushed ice What to do:1. 2. Buon Appetito! Perfect Sweet Tea. Sweet Tea... Just hearing those words make ya sigh a satisfied sigh... I am a Southern Woman... Southern women love their Sweet Tea... And... I have been told I make the BEST Sweet Tea in Texas! I'm gonna let you in on my little secret. I'm not kidding! I never gave it up. I never told. I was a good employee. Well, Guess what?!? Perfect Sweet Tea. Stacy Stowers. There’s a very good reason why it’s called the Happy Shake!

Though this creamy blend tastes like a delicious dessert, it’s chock-full of spinach, berries and super happy foods, like raw chocolate and maca. The Happy Shake is a meal replacement. It’s a key place to start when trying to lose excess weight, increase energy levels, and get healthier and happier. Before you get started, keep in mind the Happy Shake is more about technique than anything else. You can take these same ingredients, throw them into a blender and get a glass full of lawn clippings. Ingredients: 1/2 cup water 3-4 cups spinach 1 Tbs. coconut oil 1 Tbs. raw maca powder 2 Tbs. raw cacao powder 1 cup FROZEN blueberries 3/4 cup FROZEN cherries 1/4 cup FROZEN banana Optional: a little raw honey for those who like extra sweetness Optional: 3 ice cubes or a small handful of ice for those hot humid days In your Vitamix or blender start with: 1. 2. 3.

I have to say, in my experience, I have never met a bad egg. 4 . 5. 6. 7. Homemade Coffee Creamer. My friends tell me the one thing they can’t give up is their flavored coffee creamer. I can understand. Creamy, sweet, smooth, with all sorts of different flavors to choose from. The problem is the ingredients. Have you ever read what’s in those bottles? They are full of artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated oils.

As far as I can tell, most of them don’t even contain milk! So if you’re hooked on store-bought creamer then today’s your day. Next time you have friends over for a gathering, make a few batches of homemade coffee creamer, put them in cute bottles and have a coffee bar. A great alternative to regular coffee is herbal coffee. *Since posting these recipes in September 2010, I have developed a few new recipes: Caramel Coffee Creamer and Honey Vanilla Coffee Creamer, Sugar Free and Dairy Free Coffee Creamer **Teeccino contains barley, so if you need to avoid gluten an organic decaf would be a better option. Not so much a recipe… More of a “why have I not been doing this for years?” Post. Remember back when I made caramel sauce? For some strange reason, I haven’t made it since then.

I know, right!? The other day, I decided to make caramel sauce. I’d also been pouring the leftover coffee into an ice tray and freezing it in the off hand chance I’d have time to make iced coffee. See where I’m going? I didn’t have time to cold brew, so I made coffee in the french press, poured it into a pitcher, and let it rest in an ice bath. Once it was chilled, I took the caramel sauce and drizzled it in some glasses. Totally fancy, I know. Then I added the coffee cubes, my favorite creamer, then the coffee. Lovely. For this batch, I didn’t let the coffee cool enough, so the caramel drizzles disappeared when I poured the coffee in. So, now that I have the power of delicious iced coffee, you’ll find me out in my back yard, chillin’ with a book and sippin’ on love.
