Brandi is bringin’ on the serious sugar with this blended drink, featuring Monin’s fabulous caramel sauce and butterscotch syrup. If you’re in the market for a cool treat and aren’t counting the calories, this frappe is totally up your alley.
If we leave Brandi alone long enough, she always goes to a place of sweetness and light … and booze! But since we know our way around a mojito — no questions asked — we were very excited by her delicious take on this lovely cocktail. Incorporating a trio of Monin syrups and fresh strawberries, we think you’ll follow suit!
While the calendar reads summer, the seasons are already threatening to change on us here in the Pacific Northwest! Brandi decided to craft a lovely hot beverage using Bodum’s Hot Chocolate Maker. While using it makes it super easy — and fun! — you could also just heat everything up on the stove together and you’d get similar, albeit less frothy, results.
Muffins: The grab-and-go breakfast of champions! They’re slightly sweet and definitely delicious, with just enough carbs to get your day started but not so many that you fall asleep at your desk.
Now, I love pre-packaged muffin mixes with dehydrated fruit just as much as the next gal (have you ever tried those blueberries before mixing in the other ingredients? Yum!), but sometimes you want something different. Something less doped up with sugar and maybe just a tad more sophisticated, am I right?
Enter Glazed Chai Muffins. Oh yeah, breakfast just got awesome!
Looking for ways to pack more power into your coffee’s punch? How about incorporating fruits and veggies rich in anti-oxidants? Yeah, we said it. Watch as she puts everything from chocolate sauce to kale into the Vitamix … then we drink it — and it’s good!
If it’s made by Brandi, it must be luscious, right?! Well, that’s certainly the case for today’s cool concoction. Watch Brandi blend up this lovely drink, featuring Irish cream liqueur and Monin’s Coconut syrup.
Combine all the ingredients except for the chocolate sauce in a blender. Blend for about 20 – 30 seconds. In your serving glass, drizzle dark chocolate sauce for decoration. Pour in smoothie and get ready to rock!
This recipe has all the sweetness and light we need right about now. The Pacific Northwest is fighting summer tooth and nail, so while we huddle up next to the fireplace and scurry through rain showers (yes, in June!), we’ll nod to the summer weather no doubt happening elsewhere in the northern hemisphere with Brandi’s delicious concoction.
