London Fog Smoothie

So even though it is summertime, you all know I will not give up my tea.

Not for nothing or nobody

And pinterest knows this so they send me lots of tea recipes.

This one I found sounded very good, London Fog Smoothie. I love London Fog lattes, I love smoothies, why not combine the two?

The picture with the ingredients was saved from a site called womansbust.com, but when I clicked on the link there was nothing about tea on it, only enlarging a woman’s breasts.

Oh well.

Tea first!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Vanilla Yogurt (I used Greek Yogurt)
  • 1/3 Cup of Almond Milk (I don’t like almond so I used regular)
  • 1/3 Cup of Earl Grey Tea
  • 1 Cup of Crushed Ice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla
  • 1 Teaspoon of Honey

Directions:

  1. Combine all and blend.
  2. Serve.
  3. Top with whipped cream if desired.

This was better than the Fauxccino as I think having the cup of tea added to it better than the ice cubes. It came out a bit watery so I really thinking combining the two would work best. It didn’t come out super sweet with the Greek Yogurt and regular milk, so I added French Vanilla Creamer to sweeten it up. Regular yogurt would have been a better choice. But I know for next time. The cinnamon was very strong too, I would have done way less-just a dash.

Otherwise, it was very good. And a great tea drinking method for the summertime.

The NeverEnding Story

So I don’t know how many of you out there have ever read or watched the films (the first is the best), of The NeverEnding Story. The NeverEnding Story is about a boy who steals a book, and when he reads it actually becomes a part of the story. It’s REALLY good! I highly recommend it.

WATCH IT NOW!!

Anyways, I came across something on Pintrest, Classic Book By You, that is so similar to this. It is a company that will give you a similar experience of Bastien, the main character from The NeverEnding Story. You can choose to have your name be written in to classic literature and become a part of the story! How cool is that? Instead of dreaming of being in the Regency era, on a pirate ship, or in Victorian London you can actually read about yourself doing it. It is soooo amazing.

For Example let’s say I wanted to be in Pride & Prejudice with Mr. Darcy?

P&P

Or Northanger Abbey?

Love Mr. Tilney

Or perhaps Jane Eyre?

Something more macabre like Dracula?

For those of you who watch Supernatural you will understand why I did this for those of you who don't you'll just be confused. Go here to be unconfused.

Maybe mysteries are more your bag?
