I Found the Key to Perfect Southern-Style Sweet TeaRecipes
Before my fellow Southerners read this and start thinking, “Are you kidding me? Who doesn’t know how to make sweet tea?” — hear me out. I am Florida-born and Georgia-raised, but when I moved to California, one of the first things I noticed was that no one drinks sweet tea out here! I always keep a pitcher ready in my fridge, and my friends inevitably ask me, “How do you make this?” Today you’re going to find out how.

How To Make an Orange JuliusRecipes
Orange Julius recipes have been floating around for years, but I was always skeptical about them. I thought they could never be as good as the “real thing,” and even though I haven’t had the real thing in at least 25 years, that drink was still on a pedestal in my memory. But I recently tried making an Orange Julius at home. Turns out, it’s not only as good as the “real thing” — it’s better.

Why I Drink Green Hot Chocolate for BreakfastSkills
I’ve been drinking bright green hot chocolate in the morning. This is, after all, the holiday season, where I could probably go to a party every single night, so I like to start the day right. I am an admitted jumper of bandwagons and this year, I’ve jumped on the bandwagon of spirulina and liquid chlorophyll. Why not mix them with chocolate?

Recipe: Vegan Tropical Paradise SmoothieRecipes
Many people tend to get excited about smoothies in the summer, when fresh berries and stone fruits are at their best. Not me. My blender usually gathers dust in the summer months (I never let those fresh berries sit long enough to make it into a smoothie), but in the winter, my body craves cool, creamy, fruit-laden drinks. And this smoothie in my current go-to. Smoothies don’t need much of an introduction. In general, they’re a dump-in-the-blender-and-blend kind of affair.

Recipe: Vegan Chocolate-Date SmoothieRecipes
You’re an adult, so of course you can have chocolate for breakfast when you feel like it. But this is different because this is how to have chocolate for breakfast without it being a piece of cake. Every sip of this creamy smoothie — made with dates, bananas, and almond butter — tastes rich and satisfying, and you can count on its wholesome and nourishing ingredients to fill you up. To get the smoothest, creamiest result possible, this drink is best when blended twice.

Recipe: Make-Ahead Eggnog French Toast CasseroleRecipes
Every single holiday season, without fail, this happens: I get a deep craving for eggnog, resist until I can’t resist any longer, buy a carton, pour myself a small glass, and find satisfaction in just a few sips. The problem is I leave myself with the majority of the carton left over after I’ve fulfilled my craving. What the heck do I do with all the rest? That’s when I end up scouring the internet for recipes using the remainder. Here’s the recipe I’ll now turn to.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Pumpkin Pie SmoothieRecipes
When temperatures drop, my smoothie consumption usually begins to taper, but this year I’ve been experimenting with adding fall ingredients to the usual blender suspects. My family’s most admired autumnal smoothie to date is this thick and creamy pumpkin pie version. It’s sweetened enough (with fruit!) that the pumpkin and spices bring pie to mind, but not so decadent that it strays into dessert territory. You can definitely still have this for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Banana Split SmoothieRecipes
When you go to an ice cream shop, are you a sundae or a milkshake person? I’ve always ordered a milkshake, but I have to admit, seeing the towering sundaes loaded with toppings has always made me a little jealous. Here’s a smoothie that meets both camps halfway! Fresh banana, a healthy dose of frozen sweet cherries, milk, and a spoonful of sunflower butter (to make this nut-free) get tossed into a blender with some vanilla extract to mimic the flavor of vanilla ice cream.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Cantaloupe SmoothieRecipes
While cool, crisp watermelon gets so much of the love this time of year, cantaloupe casually sits on the sidelines, waiting for someone to call it onto the field. It’s just as sweet and refreshing, but all too often lurks in the shadows of its pink counterpart, who gets blended into cocktails, tossed in salads, and more. Luckily, this smoothie changes that; it puts the orange melon right in the center of the action — exactly where it deserves to be.

Recipe: Banana Bread SmoothieRecipes
No matter how much you love turkey, mashed potatoes, and the seemingly endless stream of pies that come with the holiday season, there are times your body craves a break from the indulgence in favor of something truly nourishing. Smoothies to the rescue. Whether it’s the morning after Thanksgiving or any other day of the week, this smoothie full of bananas, dates, and cashews is a welcome respite from rich holiday fare.

How To Make Thai Iced TeaRecipes
Here’s the drink I’ll be sipping on all summer long: Thai iced tea! I used to reserve this refreshing drink for combatting the heat when I ordered spicy curries at Thai restaurants, but not anymore. I recently discovered that making your own Thai iced tea is surprisingly easy. Thai iced tea is a real treat. While regular iced tea can be somewhat mild, and served with the option of sweetened or unsweetened, Thai iced tea is more concentrated and flavorful.

Recipe: Cider-Chai SyrupRecipes
Apples and chai spices are a likely combination and work gloriously, especially when enjoyed in front of a fire. Add 2 tablespoons to a cup 
of boiled water for a drink that warms you. Add 1 tablespoon whiskey for a makeshift hot toddy that also warms you — perhaps even a bit more. Process these jars in a water bath to preserve the goodness for gifting all year.

10 Non-Alcoholic Drinks If You’ve Sworn Off Booze This MonthRecipes
Now that the holidays are said and done, you may find yourself wanting to step back from the alcohol a bit after all the parties and festivities. Dry January, or Drynuary as it’s often referred to, is exactly what it sounds like: quitting booze for the entire month. For many, it’s a way to reset and practice a little self-care after a busy past couple of months. It doesn’t mean you have to subject yourself to just water for 31 days, though.

This Is How I’m Drinking Less AlcoholPeople
It’s been a month since I decided to cut back my alcohol intake, and I owe you an update. Unlike those around me, who were eliminating alcohol completely for Dry January, my strategy was less rigid. The plan was to consider each opportunity to imbibe and make a conscious decision as to whether or not I truly wanted a drink. Not surprisingly, my “make a decision in the moment” approach wasn’t as measurable — or as effective.
