Whatโ€™s in your cup?

โ€ƒ

A companion thread to What's on your plate? 

 

I thought it would fun to share what weโ€™re all drinking. It could be your favourite tea or show of your crowd pleasing cocktail recipes. Whatโ€™s in your cup?

Right now, Iโ€™m enjoying a nice cup of ginger peach tea with milk and honey. Itโ€™s nice and calming before bed.

Spoiler
And shout out to the original thread  I kinda found out too late about this and itโ€™s been far too long since it was updated. 

 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

That mug is awesome @caitbird! Seems like you have quite the collection there!

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@JoSometimes  thank you! haha yes, we do like our mugs around here ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

That mug is too cute @caitbird โฃ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ Wait, what's this I just read? Chai spice honey?!!! That sounds delicious. Going to look that up! 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi  the honey is also by The Republic of Tea. It's really good!

I went for a haircut yesterday and got some mango-strawberry boba for the road. It totally matched my manicure! ๐Ÿงก

Todayโ€™s drink was a Strawberry Aรงai refresher from Starbucks with a side of Sephora and Shoppers. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

Love the boba and mani pairing @JoSometimes! It's really warm out today and that strawberry acai refresher sounds perfect. May need to grab one after work.

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi This past week has basically been summer 2.0 for us here. Itโ€™s supposed to cool down starting tomorrow and feel like fall again next week. 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

A cool down sounds wonderful @JoSometimes! Tomorrow is supposed to be our hottest day  this week. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@JoSometimes @Those drinks sound so good. 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

Thank you @SportyGirly125. They were delicious. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@JoSometimes love your drink and manicure ๐Ÿ’… โค๏ธ The Starbucks drink looks good too. I spy some bonus Sephora cute lil bag ๐Ÿ˜˜

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@blackkitty2014 I just ran out of setting spray and decided to make the trip into a Sephora to grab some more. 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

"...with a side of Sephora and Shppers."  That is so funny, @JoSometimes ! ๐Ÿคฃ  Both of these drinks sound good.  Many years ago, I believe it was in this Community's predecessor, Beauty Talk, we decided you are a makeup addict when you look at something and you think, "wouldn't that make a great lipstick color?"  Now that I'm polishing my nails, I find myself thinking this for nail polish (as well as lipstick).

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@Titian06 I guess I reached addict status a while ago. I remember eating a blood orange and thought, โ€œthis would make for a bold lip colourโ€ฆโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@JoSometimes - Bite Beauty had a lip pencil called Blood Orange.

Ingredient(s) Spotlight: Strawberry Kiwi ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅ 

Juice smoothie.jpeg

A homemade smoothie before heading to the airport. I considered packing my blender with me, but Iโ€™ve no idea how to take apart the blade and I know I wouldnโ€™t be able to reassemble it correctly once I arrive at my destination. ๐Ÿ˜† 

๐Ÿ“Strawberries 

๐Ÿฅ Kiwi

๐ŸPineapple 

๐ŸŽ1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar 

๐Ÿ’ฆCup of water 

๐ŸงŠ 2-3 cubes of ice 

๐Ÿฏ A light drizzle of honey 

 

- Add all of the above into the cup. Apply lid and place in blender unit. Blend for 10 seconds. Repeat. 

- Drink up! ๐Ÿ˜‹ 

 

@Titian06, have you had a chance to give your new blender a whirl? Discovered any flavor combos you love? Iโ€™ve been on a fruit kick with my smoothies lately, but adding some dark greens, like kale or spinach,  always adds a nice touch. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Landed. Went straight to the hotel - checked in, returned some work emails and phone calls, washed up - and then went out to dinner before heading back to the room for more work & phone calls, all while sipping on water and later, a cup of this strawberry kiwi flavored greens & super foods mix. 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi - I'm sorry!  I never received notification for your tag! ๐Ÿ˜–  I happened to be looking for our conversation about your blender and saw your post.  I finally made my first smoothie this morning! ๐Ÿฅณ  Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics.  I'll try to remember tomorrow.  Here's what I used:

 

Water

Spinach

Avocado 

Blueberries (frozen)

Peaches (slices, frozen)

 

It was not a very attractive color and it didn't have much flavor, but I loved the texture.  Boy does that blender have power (and loud too)!

 

I'll try a slightly different version tomorrow.  I forgot a couple of items this morning and I want to change up the fruit.

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

No apology needs @Titian06. Happy to hear you gave it a try. Interested to see how your next one goes. I wonder if the lack of flavor from the first smoothie would be resolved by changing the ratio of fruits and veggies to lean more on the fruit side or if there were a piece of fresh fruit included, maybe an apple? Or mango? Or swapping out the water for coconut water or orange juice? Those substitutions though would increase the sugar content in your smoothie. ๐Ÿค” 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi - Here's take 2 ๐ŸŽฌ

 

Nutritional yeast

Strawberries 

Peaches

Avocado 

Spinach 

Water

Distilled white vinegar 

 

I was a little heavy handed with the vinegar.  That's OK; I like vinegar, so at least it had flavor this time!  The color was better too.

 

Since I'm out of spinach and avocados, I'll have to be more creative tomorrow.  I have an idea.

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

This looks creamy and yummy @Titian06! Do you know Iโ€™ve never tried using an avocado in my smoothies? Me thinks that needs to change stat! ๐Ÿฅ‘
