Homemade Kombucha

kombucha-3

Kombucha is delicious, naturally fizzy, and full of probiotics that are fantastic for your digestive system. Unfortunately, a 16 oz. bottle of kombucha from the store usually falls somewhere between $3-4, which is a lot of money to spend if you want to drink it every day like I do. To cut down on costs, I’ve been making my own kombucha at home, and have now reached the point where I’m producing enough to share with friends and family members who are interested in trying it out for … [Read more...]

Almond Milk Recipe

Homemade Almond Milk from My Own Ideas blog #recipe #drink #beverage #healthy

Lately I’ve been trying to cut down on my dairy intake, so I’ve been replacing my normal cow’s milk with alternatives like almond milk. Unfortunately, most brands of almond milk that are readily available in my area tend to be made with ingredients (like carrageenan) that aren’t good for the gastrointestinal system. Plus, if you aren’t lucky enough to catch it on sale, a half-gallon of store bought almond milk can cost quite a lot more than if you were to just make it at home. In … [Read more...]

Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi recipe from My Own Ideas blog

During the hot days of summer, I often crave a cold beverage to help cool me down. This year, after ordering a mango lassi from a local Indian restaurant, I discovered how easy and tasty this beverage is to make at home. It is as rich and creamy as a milkshake, but a lot healthier for you, and the cardamom gives it a surprisingly delicious, cooling aftertaste that lingers long after the beverage is gone. You can make this drink according to the recipe to serve two, or you can double the … [Read more...]

Flavored Water Party Recipes

flavored-water-6

Low calorie flavored water is all the rage in grocery stores but you can save yourself the big bucks, and those artificial flavors, by making your own at home. You would be surprised how easy it is to grab a pair of scissors and head out to the garden to find a few things to jazz up plain old water. Herbs such as mint, lemon balm, borage, and basil all take water up a notch in an instant. Fruits and vegetables will also naturally add pizzazz without adding anything chemical. In addition to … [Read more...]

Mocktail and Cocktail Mason Jar Lemonade

(Used in this project: Circle Labels, Small Diamond Tags, and Heart Shaped Tags in Royal Suite Style.) It's not just the kids who enjoy a fun and fruity beverage in a pretty container with a bendy straw!

I like to make one welcome drink for my guests when they arrive, something seasonal and tasty that sets the tone for the event. For my summer season kick off BBQ, … [Read more...]

Hot Chocolate Truffle Balls

truffles-3

For Valentine’s Day this year, I thought I’d remind my friends and family how much I love them with a sweet chocolate treat to warm their mugs. These truffle balls are made with two simple ingredients, chocolate and heavy cream, and take very little time to prepare. Despite their simplicity, they make the best cup of hot chocolate you’ve ever tasted. Hot Chocolate Truffle Balls • 1 Trader Joe’s Pound Plus Dark Chocolate Bar (or 17.6 oz dark chocolate), chopped • 1 1/3 cups … [Read more...]

Hot Chocolate On A Stick

Who can resist a warm cup of hot chocolate in the winter time? When there's a chill in the air it always has a way of making me feel warm and cozy, so with the holidays fast approaching I wanted to pass on a little warmth to friends and family with some homemade hot chocolate on a stick. I saw this idea for the first time last year and knew that I needed to bookmark it for this winter. For a basic hot chocolate on a stick I used the recipe from More Design Please. It's easy and all you need … [Read more...]
