Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade - A refreshing and delicious Summer drink

For those of you expecting a new TWD recipe today (semolina bread), we chose to forgo today’s recipe, due mostly to excessive heat, making the idea of turning on the oven an unappealing one to say the least. However, we may redo it at a later time if the weather cools down. Also, unlike some of our previous experiments, semolina bread is much more difficult to convert to gluten free. No gluten free substitute flour will taste exactly like semolina, or comes even close. Since the general TWD recipe line up calls for two participations per month, and July happens to have three this year, we felt it would be okay to sit one out. Since much of the US is suffering under an incredible heat wave at the moment, we thought a recipe for an ice-cold drink, would be a welcome substitute. Continue reading


Sparkling Cranberry Juice with Green Tea

Sparkling Cranberry Juice with Green Tea

Recently we located two beverages at our local Trader Joe’s. No, we don’t receive any monetary rewards for saying this – we just like the place. One is a Green Tea drink and the other a Sparkling Cranberry Juice and we just couldn’t resist blending the two in roughly equal proportions. You could serve these chilled, with ice, or just at room temperature. The products are shown here on these pictures:

Update on our Green Lemonade

Update on Our Green Lemonade

Just wanted to give you a brief update on our Green Lemonade. Some of you wondered whether it would taste too bland with just the Romaine. Well, actually, it doesn’t – it just has a  slightly milder flavor. Our regular Green Lemonade/Smoothie does include kale, so we wanted to show you a picture of it. It definitely has a much richer color, and the flavor is excellent. For this particular one we used the same recipe posted earlier and added 6 good-sized purple kale leaves. Give it a try and let us know how you like it.
