Happy Memorial Day!
Hi Hi everyone! I hope those of you who are having a long weekend are having lovely weather today and quite enjoying it!
I’m about to head over to a friend’s barbecue but I realized it’s been a few days since I’ve stopped by Hottieville to chat with ya’ll. Is it super hot where everyone else is? All I’ve wanted to do these days is drink, drink, drink my meals, and fruit has basically replaced all other food groups. Mmmmm carbs and sugar. I wouldn’t even be having chocolate if it weren’t for the cocoa powder I dump into my smoothies (seriously, where is my mind?)! My Magic Bullet has been getting so much play it doesn’t know what to do with itself!!
Today I whipped up this refreshing treat to cool down after tanning in the back yard for a bit. I heard the ice cream truck rollin’ and I got in the mood for something sweet and chilly! It’s an awful picture, I’m aware, but I use my BlackBerry to blog so whaaaaaaaateeeverr. If you want pretty pictures, this is not the place. This is.
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 orange, peeled and pitted
- 1/2-1 cup ice cubes
- 10 drops vanilla stevia or 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
Place all the ingredients in a blender and run til smooth! It comes out kind of creamy and fizzy and just delicious. Sooooo hydrating and soooooo good! I never even liked creamsicles as a kid but I have a feeling I’m making this again (as soon as I hit “publish”).
Oh, and what’s summer without some hot jams?
There’s something about 90-esque rock that just screams summer to me. Dave, Sublime, Sister Hazel, Third Eye Blind. Soooo happy. My boyfriend is especially digging “Champagne High” these days.
As usual, what’s on your playlist today? Ya’ll know I love recommendations! Give em up!
Also, I’m reading The Time Traveler’s Wife this week but I definitely am looking for summer book recommendations! I love to read EVERYTHING so gimme the 411 – what do you recommend!? I always used to only read classical literature so I’m a little behind on the popular literature of today. What are you reading? What should I read!?
Stay cool, hotties! I’ll be back soon!
