Enjoy a Little Sweetness!

It has taken me a few years to realize that my eating habits are connected to my emotions. If things are not going well for me it is usually written all over my waistline. On those days when I need a little extra sweetness to conquer the stress I go straight for the container of Ben and Jerry’s.

Rest assured that Ben and Jerry’s is not a good companion for a lady who is already lactose intolerant!  

But over the year I have recognized that when I am beginning to crave something that disagrees with me not to ignore it but to substitute it with something better.

My better is the Sweetest Smoothie! A refreshing chocolate bar in glass that is a  nutritious beverage for post recovery after your daily yoga practice or  tough workout in the gym. It will satisfy your sweet tooth in an instant and fill you full of delightful goodness.

Give it a sip and let me know what you think! Did it hit your sweet spot?

The Espresso Special

This is my favorite recipe for when my energy is feeling low and I need a kick-start for the rest of my day. I call it the Espresso Special it is  a little coffee love with a blend of healthy sweetness to keep you breezing throughout the day.

I hope you can savor a  refreshing sip or two before running back into your day.

Coconut Love

Homemade chocolate coconut milk is one of my favorite and easy ways to thicken smoothies.It is the perfect base to add a little sweetness and flavor to your morning smoothie routine.

It usually lasts up to four days and is a fresher compliment to the usual boxed or canned coconut milk.  This drink is delicious and is a great way to add a little extra revitalization to kick start your day.
