BAM Smoothie Recipe!

So, this smoothie’s name is actually quite uncreative as it stems solely from the initials of the first three ingredients, but it’s tasty nonetheless.


Here’s what you need:

  • 1 REALLY ripe Banana
  • 1 ripe Avocado
  • 1/2 cup frozen Mango chunks
  • enough vanilla almond milk to keep it smooth and creamy (about 3/4 cup)


Here’s what you do:

  • Throw the first three ingredients into a blender with a splash of almond milk.
  • Blend until everything is mashed.
  • Add in the rest of your almond milk, and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into a glass (or mason jar) add a milkshake straw, and enjoy!


Have a Splendid Saturday y’all!!



Spiced Chai Milkshake!

I love chai tea, but it’s a struggle all through the summer to find ways to drink it chilled. I mean, iced chai is only tasty so many times. So, I tried something new today, and it turned out SUPER tasty!! 🙂

spiced chaiI’m calling it a Spiced Chai Milkshake, but it’s a bit thinner than your regular milkshake. More like a frappuccino in all honesty. Anyways . . . here’s how to make one.


  • 1 or 2 teabags of your favorite chai tea. (I used one bag of Tazo Chai Pumpkin Spice)
  • 8 oz boiling water
  • 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream

Now, to make it!!

  1. Pour your boiling water into a glass measuring cup and add in a teabag or two (depending on how strong you want your chai)
  2. Once tea has steeped (3-5 minutes) add in cinnamon, vanilla, and almond milk. Allow to cool in fridge for at least an hour.
  3. After your tea is cool, put your ice cream in a blender along with the tea.
  4. Blend until it’s creamy. Pour into a glass (or mason jar) sprinkle with cinnamon, and add a straw!
  5. Enjoy!


That’s it! Hope y’all enjoy! If you try it, let me know in the comments!! 🙂

Have a Tremendous Tuesday!



Fresh Orange Juice!

Orange juice from the local grocery is pretty yummy, don’t get me wrong . . . but do you want to know what’s even better? Fresh squeezed orange juice! The taste is amazing — not to mention there’s only one ingredient . . . ORANGES!

Contrast that with store bought orange juice with its 112 some odd ingredients and that all too popular disclaimer on the front of the package (Made from concentrate). Lol.

Anyway, my grandparents popped in last week on their way back from Florida and brought us . . . Valencia juice oranges! So, needless to say, we made orange juice! 😉 (That is right after stopping in to HomeGoods and picking up a juicer) Our juicer is pretty, pink, and best of all — it’s electric! That means you get juice far more rapidly than if you used one of these:

With far less effort than the juicer above and a couple of oranges . . . I got 10 ounces of orange juice. Yay!


It took me about six medium sized juice oranges to get more than 20 ounces of orange juice. So, I’d call that a success!! If you want a juicer like the one I found at HomeGoods, you’re in luck . . . it’s on Amazon! Next up . . . Ruby Red Grapefruit juice! Yum!

Have any of y’all ever made fresh juice? Let me know in the comments!
