Golden Milk Mix

Nearly every single day, I make a golden milk latte. No coffee for me though, so it’s basically turmeric and other spices and adaptogens in the walnut/pepitas milk I make (1/2 cup walnuts/pepitas combined, 6 cups water, 12 medjool dates – blend) or my homemade cashew milk. But I thought I’d make it a little easier on myself by making a premade mix so I didn’t have to open up all of my spices and containers each time.

You know I’m all about food prepping these days, so it made sense to simplify this too. 🙂

Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk Latte

Finally! Not another oatmeal! And this one is PERFECT for the beautiful fall weather we’re not really experiencing here in Phoenix… LOL. Honestly, I don’t care if it’s still over 90F. I’m drinking this creamy, dreamy, delicious pumpkin spice golden milk latte anyway. Bet. 😉

I’m NOT a coffee drinker, so anything called “latte” in my book doesn’t have coffee. But if you want to add some, feel free to replace some of the water with it. My version has no caffeine, no refined sugar, and no hard-to-find or artificial ingredients. It’s easy peasy from start to finish, so let’s do this.

Plum Watermelonade

Y’all. I’m obsessed with Watermelonade. We all know this. I’ve made regular, Pineapple, and even mango. Also peach! But I bought some clearance plums the other day and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. Thus, Plum Watermelonade was born and it’s DELIGHTFUL! Goodness, life is amazing.

Apple Pie Smoothie

This apple pie smoothie, y’all. There’s something about it that’s super comforting. It reminds me of happiness and a simple way of life. It’s sweet and perfectly spiced, and though it’d be better in the fall, I’m all about bring fall to me right now (like we did with the Baked Apple Cider Oatmeal). So let’s go make this delicious smoothie!

Mine’s green because I add greens, but you don’t have to. Starting with a base of bananas is a good idea though. Then we add all the other amazing ingredients, like apple, dates (for sweetness though optional), cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts, oats, and flax/chia. You can even include maca or turmeric (+ black pepper for more turmeric bioavailability) for an even healthier drink!

Pineapple Watermelonade

Y’all. Several summers ago, I made Watermelonade and it blew my mind. This summer, I saw a post on facebook from The Chocolate Vegan about blending watermelon with pineapple instead of lemon and thought, Yeah, I should try that. Pineapple watermelon juice sounds good.

Holy moly, you guys. I’m so glad I went for it!! But I had to take it to the next level with some lemon juice. And YESSSS that’s even BETTER! So let’s get in the kitchen and makes some Pineapple Watermelonade, shall we? Come on!

Pineapple Mango Grapefruit Smoothie

A few months ago, we had SO MANY GRAPEFRUITS! A local group of kind folks volunteer to “rescue” citrus from trees in a couple of retirement communities. The people with orange and grapefruit trees in their yards can’t eat it all and don’t want to pick it, so we do it for them. In return, we get to keep most of it. We can use it or donate it, and it’s awesome. We tried to use a lot of it, but it was SO much fruit!!
