I was at a Red Rock Casino the other day with my girls, heading to a movie. Zoe asked me what an Orange Julius was. I don’t know where that comment even came from, because there isn’t one there. I do believe that she has not had an Orange Julius, since she was very little. I told her I would make one later, knowing very well that i had all the ingredients at home. This afternoon, I decided to make the Orange Julius for the three of us. It was very delicious. I forgot how good they could be. I’m so glad that i whipped these up to reminded myself. Plus, it’s vegan so it’s even better.

I’m ADD. There is no denying it. During the movie, I made this. I decided to leave it for the movie theatre cleaners. I hope it made someone’s day brighter.

Green smoothie

1 Sep

This afternoon I needed a little pick me up. For a while I was making this drink or a version of it, ever morning. It’s not always the same. It varies depending on what I have in the fridge. Sometimes I will add strawberries or pineapple. Pea or protein powder are also a great addition. About 1 Tbsp is a good amount to add. Most of the time I will make it with soy milk, but I’m almost out. I opted to us vanilla almond milk today. I think it tastes better then the soy milk I normally use.
