Frosty the Snow Goat

Ooooooh my goodness!

Watermelon Mint Smoothie

Is it summer yet? I'm so ready!

I made this on the weekend and it was so refreshing! This is an adaptation from Fully Raw Kristina. She has a video you can watch called "My watermelon juice secret" that you can watch.

I basically do the same thing as her except I actually blended the mint with the watermelon, but only used about 1/3 the amount she did.

I used one smaller watermelon, blended with a handful of fresh mint. Strained into a bowl and then transferred to a jar. Another tip (that I didn't do) is to maybe chill the watermelon first. I'm going to do that next time!

Fresh Spring tea - Mint and Vanilla

I was at a friend's house the other day and she served a lovely light homemade tea of Mint and Vanilla.

It was so light and delicious! I made some this weekend to sip in the sun while I read.. this would also make a lovely cold beverage as well.

All you need to do is roughly chop up a small amount of mint leaves and add in a scraping of vanilla and pour your boiled water over it and let it steep for about 5 minutes. If you don't have real vanilla, extract can work, but make sure not to over do it. Add a drop or two and taste test it first.
