Happy Monday folks.. hope all of your days went well, mine was every bit of crazy but hey I am here aren't I?

I was reading thru some of the blogs I follow and came across this from Fashion Meets Food.... seems fairly on point some of those lovely ice cold drinks look fantastic? I think pretty much no matter where you live right now, you are being cooked. At least down here in Florida is it firing up from 8 in the morning til it gets dark and even then it stays pretty humid..which leaves you reaching for the ice water or in a lot of other instances milk shakes, iced coffee and frozen drinks of any flavor.

I have pined after Dairy Queen, Starbucks and the like most days but in an attempt to keep things simple, inexpensive and health driven (sorta?) I try to make most of it at home.. after an especially sweaty climb up three flights of stairs with the weeks clean laundry in tow, the dog and a bag onTOP of said laundry... I was looking for iced and energy giving.

Ended up on iced sweet raspberry coffee..

  • organic Arabic coffee
  • fresh raspberries
  • almond milk
  • ice
  • agave
It......was......perfect. Sweet, creamy, roasty & a partly sweet, partly tart finish to each sip.

On another note, a recent picture of our furbaby.. regal, dominating, demanding, sweet girl. (hah...)

This is one combo I've never had! But it sounds dreamy...much better than Starbucks. The picture of your dog is very striking...he looks as if he wants to talk!
