WHO AM I RIGHT NOW? This recipe title sounds so very…how do put this? Los Angeles. This recipe sounds very “LA.” But the truth is, I make iterations of this drink all the time and I love it.
I’m not sure if you’ve heard but oat milk is all the rage right now. And in my typical bratty behavior, I snubbed it for months. I honestly drink my coffee black anyway but a few weeks ago, after I drove across town for a meeting and needed an afternoon pick-me-up, I stopped in a cafe and ordered an oat milk cappuccino. IT WAS GOOD.
It tastes kinda like nothing. It’s a really good texture—not too heavy or thick, not too thin. It provides some nice foam and marries with the espresso so very well.
I figured it was time to put it to test in a more sweet capacity so enter: this hot chocolate. I added a scoop of collagen to the blender, along with some melted chocolate, oat milk and a teaspoon of maple syrup. Blended right up and it’s oh so good!
I’m currently flying in the sky headed to Florida to visit some family for the 4th of July. It’s going to be a quick and snappy trip—just how I like it. But first, Aguas Frescas/Agua Fresca!
And I was going to wait to post this recipe next week but I’m having some flight entertainment issues. I downloaded a bunch of episodes of season seven Drag Race for the plane and they didn’t actually download, unfortunately, so I’m bored. I figured I’d share this recipe instead of being bored, so here’s to hoping you have time to make it before the 4th!! If not, then maybe you can make it this weekend or the weekend after. Summer isn’t going anywhere.
In fact, it’s just gearing up. This weekend it’s going to be 105 degrees F in LA. WHUUT! Yes, and I’m getting back just in time for the beautifully warm festivities. You best believe I’m making a big batch of all three for the weekend.
I feel like the holidays are my G-O time. It is cozy season after all and it’s really the time when I feel like I have to post all the recipes that I’ve been collecting in my little summer-hating brain.
This recipe has been on my to-make list for A LONG TIME. How can I have a blog about cozy food and not have a single recipe for broccoli cheddar soup?!?!
This soup is inspired by Panera Bread but not sponsored by them because they don’t know who I am. But let me tell you, your girl loves Panera.
