Berrylicious Smoothie

I was inspired by the Berrylicious Smoothie at Kreation to try to replicate it at home. Their version is delicious, but mine came pretty darn close.

Blend together 6 raspberries, 5 large strawberries (I used Harry’s berries from the farmer’s market), 1/4 cup coconut water, 1/2 cup coconut milk, one small banana, one spoonful of almond butter, and one spoonful of raw clover honey. Blend until it becomes a smooth consistency and beautiful pink color. This is a great way to start your day or a midday snack. It is thick and luxurious and totally satisfying.

Thanks for the inspiration, Kreation. Don’t worry, I will still buy yours because it is packed with additional goodness, but this is a great substitute.

Raspberry Tart

I recently went to Vegas with my dad and my sister and we stopped by my favorite Patisserie, Jean Philippe, at the Aria hotel.

We ordered the cheese danish, vanilla eclair, and the Raspberry tart. The tart was our favorite by far as it was so full of flavor and light and airy as well. The sweet treat is composed of a delicate vanilla cake base, raspberry cream, pistachio cream, fresh raspberries, white chocolate curls, and candied pistachios sprinkled on top. The flavors go together so perfectly and get better with each and every bite. It isn’t over powering and just the right amount of sweetness. I loved every morsel of this dessert and definitely suggest that you try one should you find yourself in Vegas.
