Cold Brew-Banana Smoothie

Rating: 5 stars
1
Who says you can't caffeinate and fill up on a hearty, wholesome breakfast smoothie all at the same time? In this cozy java concoction, prepared cold brew is blended into a banana and almond milk smoothie. Rather than using ice cubes which will dilute the flavor of the smoothie, the cold brew is cleverly frozen.

La Croix “Backwards” Bellini

Rather than a traditional bellini, which consists of fresh peach purée and Prosecco or sparkling wine, we flip-flopped the bubbly beverages and opted for a sparkling peach seltzer (such as La Croix) along with a sweet white wine, like Riesling or Moscato. Fresh, crisp, and irresistably summery, this fruity spritzer is practically made to be sipped by the pool or tended to after a long day out in the sun.

All it takes is a simple muddle of fresh mint and raw sugar, combined with your espresso and cream, to make this deliciously cooling sipper that any java-drinker is sure to love.

If you can't steam milk at home, warm the milk slowly in a saucepan and froth the milk by shaking it in a tightly sealed jar, using a frother, or whisking thoroughly while heating.
