One of our favorite places to enjoy a warm cup of something is a place in Canmore called Communitea. It’s definitely a popular place for Mountain people! Both Michaela and I used to study there years ago with a large pot of tea and a treat. Now we come to discuss exciting new blog ideas!
Lately I have been anticipating fall. Brisk mornings, warm drinks, big scarves, the turning of the leaves and of course,cozy sweater dresses. It has been unbearably hot these past couple of days to the point where I feel uncomfortable. I can hardly wait to get cozy and hunker down in leggings in the next couple months. Fall is the season of fashion; boots, leggings, big sweaters and scarves. Can it be any easier to look cute? When I think of Autumn, I think of pretty lattes with a friend, dark chocolate, a cozy scarf, windy walks. It’s the little things in life.
This chocolate banana smoothie is not only delicious, but healthy! It will provide you with a boost for breakfast or satisfy your dessert craving in a guilt-free way! Most chocolate banana smoothie recipes call for chocolate syrup, but I like to use cocoa and honey as a healthier alternative.
1 frozen banana (don’t forget to peel it before putting it into the freezer!)
about 1 cup vanilla yogurt
about 2 cups of milk
about 2 tbsp cocoa
about 2 tbsp honey
You can play around with this recipe, depending on how chocolatey, sweet, or flavourful you want it!
A yummy mid afternoon snack idea:
2 canned pears (tastes like candy melting in your mouth!)
1 piece of toast with penut butter, honey and banana
1 cup of mixed berry tea
