Do you think you can handle two smoothie posts in a row? I couldn’t help posting this one tonight…it’s my favorite recipe yet! I’m so in love with the unique but fabulous combo of banana and lemon that I’ll probably making a vodka based version of this delicious sip very soon. I love the mellow flavor of the banana with the sweetness of the lemon curd – you don’t usually see the two together but they works so well together! Yum…

While I’ve been working on some juices for my upcoming cleanse, homemade smoothies have been dominating my diet! It started after bought one before work the other day with peaches, lychees and orange juice. I was hoping for something delicious, but ended up with a watery, bland smoothie made from canned fruit. I was so not pleased, so I started making my own at home from fresh, yummy ingredients. This is one of my favorite recipes so far – a little bit sweet, super fruity and low-cal. Enjoy!

I’m having a lychee moment right now. While I eagerly anticipate the arrival of the fresh bundles available in Chinatown, I’ve been playing around with the canned ones at my local grocery store. They aren’t quite as good, but I sure do love the no peeling & pitting part!

If you’re a lychee-phobe and aren’t crazy about the texture, this bellini may be perfect for you becuase I just use the juice here with an optional lychee garnish. I love the bright, crisp flavor of the mint here, too…delish!

Hi loves! I wanted to start off this post by apologizing (yet again) for the severe lack of updates lately. I’ve been tremendously busy over the last few weeks and am just trying to rebalance things on my end! Luckily I have tons of content up and coming over the next few weeks….

So I’ve been bouncing around the idea of a juice cleanse for a few weeks now. I’m finally going to go for it and share my whole experience with you! Take note that this will be a cleanse I’ve designed myself based off lots of research. Keep reading for more details…

Disclaimer: If you consider yourself a pizza snob, you should probably stop reading right about now. Otherwise, definitely keep reading.

You can probably tell based off the lack of recent posts I’ve been super busy lately on things like the new blog layout (you like?!) and a few other fun projects. Easy dinners have become the key to my existence and homemade pizzas are a newfound obsession. Turns out that the fresh pizza dough sold in little bags over at Fairway (and many other grocers like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, etc) is really delicious and perfect for a quick dinner with endless possibilities. I now keep a mini stockpile in my fridge to go with my recent pizza pan purchase (I use an Airbake perforated pan). Here’s my favorite variation yet: a simple white clam pie with minimal toppings and serious flavor. So simple and so delicious! Perfect to share while sipping on some cocktails.
