The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Latte

Liquid Cookie Dough. Imagine this: It’s a cold winter’s morning, and you hurry into the local coffee shop for a steaming-hot latte to counter the chill. The barista behind the counter asks, “Would you like a plain latte? Or would you prefer a rich and creamy ‘dessert’ latte that tastes like a warm chocolate-chip cookie, […]

Healthy Eggnog!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way Come July, I’ll still be drinking this sweet Christmas-y shake, because it is that good. Might need a new song, though. Let’s go surfin now, everybody’s learning how, come on and safari with meeeeeee… Or not. Maybe I’ll just stick to the Christmas carols in July as […]

Healthy Makeover: Pumpkin Spice Frappuccinos

This is what happens when Summer meets Fall: Hellooooo Fall. Yes, Fall is fast approaching, meaning it’s once again time for comfy boots and sweaters, crisp and juicy apples, tangerine leaves that get lost in the whistling breeze… And pumpkin. Lots and lots of pumpkin. What better way to welcome Fall than with a homemade Pumpkin […]

Chocolate “Protein” Milkshake

It’s the chocolate protein shake that tastes like a chocolate milkshake… And because there’s actually no protein powder in the recipe, you don’t get that chalky aftertaste present in most chocolate protein shakes. You just feel like you’re drinking a chocolate milkshake. Yes, a chocolate milkshake. Hopefully I didn’t worry you with my last post. […]

Green Lemonade

The healthiest drink in the world? Lemonade stands will never be the same. I don’t think I ever sold lemonade as a kid. I ran a cookie stand and a hot chocolate stand, and my friend and I once sold flowers we picked from her mom’s garden. (Not a good idea; nobody bought flowers, and […]

Healthier Wendy’s Vanilla Frosty

This recipe tastes similar to a Wendy’s vanilla Frosty. It’s like one of those thick vanilla milkshakes you’d find at a fast-food restaurant… but without all the empty calories and sugar to make you feel sluggish. The recipe actually came about by accident: I was working on a Tiramisu ice cream, and when I stopped […]

Chocolate Nutella Milk

Liquid Nutella. Who wouldn’t want to drink a thick glass of Nutella? Drink it, eat it, bathe in it… okay, maybe not the last one. Then again, perhaps a Nutella bath could be fun. I wonder if they sell such a thing as Nutella bubble bath. They should. I’d buy it. In bulk. Chocolate Nutella […]

Sugar Cookie Milkshake!

This tastes like you’re drinking a sugar cookie. Ok, that just sounds weird… but this is really good! Ensure? No thanks! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know I don’t really like being as skinny as I am. Although I create recipes that can be very low in calories, I usually […]

Vanilla Chai Breakfast Shakes

Have you ever tried chai tea? My college roommate got me hooked on chai sophomore year, and the spicy beverage helped me through many a winter’s bike ride to class. I invested in a stainless-steel travel mug, which I’d fill with hot tea and stuff into the side pocket of my backpack. Today’s recipe is a milkshake version […]

Chocolate Silk Smoothie

This is one thick smoothie… It’s so thick you might want to skip the glass… and use a spoon! Chocolate soup? Meeting my vegetable requirements for the day is never a problem. (Sometimes I have to make sure I don’t get too many!) Therefore I don’t normally seek out fortified products like powdered vegetable drink mixes. […]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Milkshake

Everyone’s favorite sandwich… is now a milkshake! Best Dressed No, I’m not talking about the Oscars last night. I’m talking about the milkshake I made Saturday afternoon; it was gorgeous! Earlier in the day, I went with a friend to find costumes for an Oscars party, and all that shopping made us thirsty. We saved money by […]

Healthy Hot Chocolate

Healthy hot Chocolate. Chocolate is the answer to every problem. No seriously, it is. —-Boyfriend broke up with you? Chocolate! —-No time to make dinner? Chocolate! —-Spilled red wine all over your tablecloth? Baking soda! Baking soda??? Okay, maybe chocolate is the answer to almost every problem. (Please don’t try putting chocolate on your red […]

Homemade Gingerbread Spice Latte

It’s a homemade and healthy gingerbread latte! Where’s my Coffee? My roommate, Emily, is one of those people who absolutely cannot function until she’s had her morning cup of coffee. So our kitchen is fully equipped with a Keurig machine and stacks of flavored coffee pods. Yesterday, after my run, I decided to play around […]

The Candy Corn Milkshake

I love Halloween. Haunted Houses, carving pumpkins, Creepy Carrot Cakes… I have freakishly-strong nails that grow like weeds, so one year I painted them to look like candy corns. They looked so awesome! (Of course, just one day after all my hard work, my pinkie nail decided to break. Eh, what can ya do?) This […]

Caramel Apple Milkshake

Like a sticky-sweet caramel apple. In liquid form. Caramel Apples This recipe reminds me of those gorgeous caramel apples on display at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Until I got my braces, I looked forward to caramel apples every autumn. (After the braces went on, I was probably more upset about not being allowed caramel […]
