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.
The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade. One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY!
I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved. Speaking of which, what gives sugar?! Sorry for the detour. Anyway, there was a summer there where I made my own lemonade every single day, making sure to rub it in my sister’s face that I knew how to and she didn’t.
The key to this being the ultimate lemonade is that you blend it up with the lemon rind in there. And any time of day for that matter. (makes 2 pint-glass servings with ice) 3/4 cup sugar2 large lemons, microwaved for 30 seconds2 cups water1 cup of frozen strawberries, microwaved for 1 minute (you could use fresh, but I think the frozen works better here) In a blender squeeze the lemons and add the rest of the lemon, rind and all.
Indian Masala Chai Tea Recipe - Made Just Right. Masala Chai Tea is one of the most popular beverages in all of India.
The exact recipes for chai tea vary by region and can be made with various different spices, though this recipe combines some of the most popular into one delicious hot drink… or you can even serve it over ice for a refreshing iced chai “latte”! Ingredients: 2 cups of water 1 cup Earth Balance® Original Soymilk 2 teaspoons black tea leaves (good choices: Assam, English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling) 1 cardamom pod 1 clove 1/2 inch piece of ginger 1/4 inch piece of cinnamon stick Sugar to taste In a sauce pot, combine the Earth Balance® Soymilk, water and spices, bring to a boil. When it begins to boil, add the tea leaves and keep on a rolling boil for 2 minutes or till the tea leaves are brewed and the tea has a dark golden color. Add sugar to taste. We love this combo of floral tea with warm spices, perfect for the onset of fall!
I'm totally going to use this, thanks. if you go to middle eastern stores, or even indian stores cardamon is waaay waaaaay cheaper. stop buying ethnic ingredients at chain grocery stores- they over charge!! Same goes with pomegranate juice... or figs... or dates. I love it when your comics take a turn to the psychedelic side... Holy cow I'm doing this the second I get home from work. Ok, yeah, definitely making a bigger batch next time. I used to get the best Chai tea from the cafe at Borders when I worked there, for some reason I've never had better! Yeah, they had great Chai...then their cafes became Seattle's Best and the good Chai could never be had again. Are you planning to publish a book of the various comic recipes you've been making? Twinings had a nice Indian Spice Chai in tea bags, which is nice.
Oh wow this is the coolest recipe ever! Cardamom is a lovely, lovely spice, and makes a fabulous spiced sweetened bread. I can't WAIT to try this recipe now.
