This smoothie looked interesting so I decided to try it. At first, I was skeptical because it contained carrot juice but it ended up being delicious! It’s a wonderful way to get fruits and veggies you need!
Side note: I took it to work one day. Some students asked me what was in it. When I said carrot juice, they all gave me a look of disgust. (They had thought it looked good until I told them carrot juice.)
This is our family’s favorite ice cream that my in-laws make. They only make it for special occasions At the end of the school year, my mother-in-law contacts my sons’ teachers and asks if they mind her bringing some of the ice cream to share with their classmates. It is a way for them to celebrate their birthdays because they both have summer birthdays.
Warning: You do need to have an ice cream machine to make this.
Cream Soda Ice Cream
Stars of the recipe:
2 cans of sweetened condensed milk
2 liters of red cream soda (You can use other flavors of pop. Lemon lime soda is yummy but root beer tastes flat.)
Combine the cream soda and sweetened condensed milk in the ice cream machine.
One of my favorite smoothies at Tropical Smoothie is the Blimey Limey. It has strawberries, limes, oranges, and pineapples. I love the tang of the limes in the drink. So when I found a recipe for a smoothie that used limes, I was had to try it out. Delicious!
After drinking it, I was super energized. In fact one of my students mentioned I was hyper. I don’t know if it was from the smoothie or from the two cups of coffee I had that morning. (Didn’t sleep well the night before.)
My husband has a cousin, J., who is a vegan. We went to his hand fasting (another new experience for us) a year and a half ago. The reception afterwards featured Indian food (another new experience for us) and vegan cupcakes. We were pleasantly surprised on how yummy they were.
J. and wife had their first baby in September. Since they live in Canada and we live in Ohio, we had not met baby S until last night. He is totally cute and very long for his age. J. is a tall man so it’s not too surprising.
Since we were going to meet up with J., wife, and baby S., I knew there was going to be Christmas goodies there. J. wouldn’t be able to enjoy the goodies so I decided to make him a batch of vegan brownies so he could enjoy some Christmas goodies.
These are very rich so a tall glass of water, milk, tea, or coffee is in order when you eat a piece!
