Hope you're all having a beautiful summer Friday today!
To celebrate the beautiful weather we're having (and to try to escape from it a little bit) I've created a delicious blended strawberry cocktail. I call it The Sorta Strawber-rita because it's sorta like a strawberry margarita as in it's sweet, cold, and goes down easy, however the liquors in this drink are different.
So why not use this drink as an excuse to invite a friend over and try this sucker out for your selves?! (the recipe makes two drinks)
It's summer, so you know what that means! Stone fruit!
Peaches, apricots, and nectarines were always a staple during my summers growing up.

First, mix 1/2 cup of water and 1+1/2 cups of white sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat....
I don’t know about you, but It’s starting to feel a lot like summer to me. The weather’s getting warmer, the air is getting dryer, and I’m seeing a lot more tank tops and shorts. That’s why I figured it was time to make everyone’s summer staple- Ice Cream! Yay!
The loquat / coconut combo was inspired by the awesome ripe loquats in my parents’ front yard and my love for everything coconut. If you’ve never had a loquat, they are sort of like an apricot both in texture and taste, but even better.
I also decided to go vegan/dairy free with this recipe for a few reasons:
I had cashew and coconut milk at home and wanted to use them (plus they are lower in f...
