Peanut Butter Banana Oat Smoothie

The recipe is actually Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie, but as I have one that is almost the same title I added oats to this to distinguish it from the other.

  • 1/2 Cup of Almond Milk (I don’t like almond so I use regular)
  • 3/4 Cup of Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup of Oats
  • 1/2 Tsp of Cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp of Peanut Butter

Directions:

  1. Combine all in blender and mix well.
  2. Add a dash of oats on top.

Thoughts After Making:

It was delicious. I loved the peanut butter and I loved the smoothie. It was delicious and I recommend it.

A great recipe from my sister blog

janeaustenrunsmylife

So you know me. I love tea.

There is nothing better than starting your morning, afternoon, evening-or every hour with a wonderful cup of tea.

You may or may not know that I also love smoothies. I get up early every day so it is nice to be able to run out the door and drink my breakfast on the run.

So as I was looking through Pinterest, I found a recipe Berry Colombo Smoothie, from RefuTeaI don’t have Colombo tea, so I had to use a different brand and I didn’t have strawberries, so I had to leave them out. Oh well.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of Frozen Strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
  • 1/2 Cup of Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup of Earl Grey Tea

Cinnamon Roll Smoothie

Blueberry Infused Water, Fresh & Frozen

So for my birthday last year, a friend of mine bought me a infuser type water bottle. So of course as the weather got warmer, I decided it was time to crack it out.

 

Ingredients:

  • A Handful of Blueberries, Fresh or Frozen
  • Ice
  • Water

Directions:

  1. Put the blueberries in the water bottle or pitcher.
  2. Add ice and water; infuse and drink.

Thoughts After Making:

It was alright. It didn’t really add any taste to it. Maybe if I had added something else. I don’t know.

Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

Yummmm! Smoothies! I love drinking smoothies, especially in summertime. Summer is hot and I’m so busy with Summer Reading at the library it is great to make one the night before and drink it on the drive over.

When I saw that it was a blueberry muffin smoothie I was very intrigued. Would it really taste like it?

I found this recipe on pinterest and it comes from Iowa Girl Eats. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Milk
  • 4-6 oz Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
  • 1/2 Cup of Frozen Banana
  • 1/4 Cup of Raw, Uncooked Oats (I used Quakers)
  • 1/2 Cup of Ice Cubes

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Thoughts After Reading:

When I first tried it I thought it tasted good, but not very muffin batter-y. But I put it in my fridge and the next day drank it. The oats had changed after being soaked and it made the smoothie much thicker. I wouldn’t say it tasted like blueberry muffins, but definitely blueberry batter. Kind of like eating raw cookie dough, but in a good blueberry smoothie.

  • Water

Directions:

  1. Slice the watermelons and put them water bottle or pitcher.
  2. Add lemon or lime slices

Thoughts After Making:

It was okay. Not really my thing.

Thoughts Before Cooking:

I’m borrowing this recipe from my sister blog JaneAustenRunsMyLife.wordpress.com as she is an avid tea fan.

It originally comes from Pinterest, but the source site is unreachable.

Oh well

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Vanilla Yogurt (I used Greek Yogurt)
  • 1/3 Cup of Almond Milk (I don’t like almond so I used regular)
  • 1/3 Cup of Earl Grey Tea
  • 1 Cup of Crushed Ice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla
  • 1 Teaspoon of Honey

Directions:

  1. Combine all and blend.
  2. Serve.
  3. Top with whipped cream if desired.

Thoughts After Cooking:

This was better than the Fauxccino as I think having the cup of tea added to it better than the ice cubes. It came out a bit watery so I really thinking combining the two would work best. It didn’t come out super sweet with the Greek Yogurt and regular milk, so I added French Vanilla Creamer to sweeten it up. Regular yogurt would have been a better choice, but I know for next time. The cinnamon was very strong too, I would have done way less-just a dash.

Otherwise, it was very good. And a great tea drinking method for the summertime.

Thoughts Before Making:

As I just posted a review of a Jane Austen inspired mystery, the best thing to go with it is a tea post! I love tea, and one thing I started drinking this winter is London Fog lattes.

As it is getting HOT here, that is something I will no longer be able to have…at least that is what I thought until I stumbled on this recipe of London Fog Fauxccinos from Traditional Cooking School by GNOWFGLINS on Pinterest.

Ingredients:

  • 8 Earl Grey Tea Ice Cubes
  • 1 Cup of Homemade Almond Milk or Milk of Choice
  • 1 Tablespoon of Raw Honey or 8 Drops of Stevia
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • Whipped Cream (Optional)

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in the blender.
  2. Blend on high until smooth.
  3. Top with whipped cream if desired.

Thoughts After Making:

I didn’t really care for it, I couldn’t taste the tea at all. Maybe I did the ice cubes wrong? Maybe I should add more of the tea in it? I’m not sure. Maybe a mix of liquid tea with the ice cubes would be better. I’ll have to try again and see. Either way:
