Adaptogenic Rose Latte

The rain has made a comeback. This change in weather has me craving something extremely warming and soothing. As I have said a million times before, I love making drinks. So, obviously this was going to happen. With each sip of this latte I could feel the tension leave me. The gloominess and the rain becoming more poetic and moody than frustrating because there should be sunshine. The mix of ingredients I used here make for a nourishing, wholesome and very luscious, frothy drink. Rose is read more

Fennel & Cucumber Juice

Any tea with fennel in it, I?m a fan. I find the taste incredibly grounding. It?s one of those flavours that just tastes like it must be doing you some good. I have numerous cups of herbal tea a day and there?s usually at least one blend with some fennel in there. It has a liquorice taste which I know a lot of people might find a little difficult to take, it can be one of those love it or hate it things. In this juice I?ve tried to balance out that flavour with some read more

Ginger & Sage Lemonade

It is most definitely Spring here. The sun is shining, little bumblebees are flying around and the herbs in my window boxes are looking super happy and bright.

She is the most adorable creature I have ever laid eyes on. We are both completely besotted over here. Her name is Anouk and she is perfect. Being a new cat mama is pretty tiring though. Lots of late nights and early mornings, she’s worth it though.

The weather took a very dull turn the last few days after some gorgeous sunshine read more

Vanilla & Cardamom Hot Chocolate

Hot drinks are my jam. You can pretty much always find me with a mug of something warm no matter what I?m up to (cue the nickname Multi Beverage McFarlane, because even if I?m sipping on a glass of water/a smoothie/kombucha/whatever else, I?ll still have a mug in the other hand). I?m not a coffee drinker of any form. No latte, espresso or flat white here. I prefer to stick to herbal teas and other warm tonics. Mixing up plant milk with spices, nut butter and other read more
