Iced tea is so refreshing on those hot days of summer. Today, I infused fresh spearmint from the garden in green tea. The invigorating fragrance of mint makes it pleasing to even the most refined palate.

I just finished filming the cooking tutorial. You'll see how easy it is to prepare. Sit back, watch, sip and relax!

Blueberry Kiwi Smoothie Recipe Recipe

Blueberry Kiwi Smoothie Recipe

I've tried shedding a few pounds since our return from Florence, Rome and Paris. Almost every year, the girls join me during the summer in my workout and diet routine. Mimi, Lulu's 14-year-old little sister, surprised me this morning and prepared the fruitiest, packed-with-energy smoothie. She didn't use any additional sweeteners, except for the natural sweetness from bananas, blueberries and golden kiwis

Mimi used our powerful Vitamix blender. For a smoother flow, she also added almond milk. When I first met her, Mimi used to have awful allergies with almonds, but since her teenage years, she has overcome this specific allergy. Unfortunately, we've discovered new ones, especially during our trip to Florence. She's allergic to truffle mushrooms now; go figure!

This is a recipe Maman made for baby Aria. It's a quickly prepared homemade blueberry lemonade. She made it in a blender using blueberries, freshly squeezed lemons and loads of honey. 

Every year, Maman and Papa spend their summer in Camargue, in the southern region of Arles, near the Mediterranean sea. And every year they stock up on extremely flavorful, artisanal honey. 

This drink is not only delicious, but very healthful. Give it a try; it's easy to follow!

It's already our third day in Rome and I have to say the weather is really hot. So hot that pesky mosquitoes bit baby Aria and me so much! My husband Lulu says it's because we're so sweet. I like to think it's because of the things we eat and drink. Speaking of sweet drinks, I prepared a large pitcher of strawberry green tea for the family to enjoy after our visit to the Vatican.

The recipe is ultra easy. I steeped green tea leaves and added fresh, flavorful strawberries and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Things I can't Live Without: Green Valley Organics Kefir Recipe
This is the start of many more videos revealing the things I can't live without. I'm going to be sharing more products that are a must in my refrigerator, my everyday ingredient items and I'll also name the "secret weapons" that I simply can't work without in my cooking. Green Valley Organics kefir is one of the small pleasures I enjoy. Last weekend, I combined it with hazelnuts for their essential fatty acids, a few baby kale leaves and frozen berries for a wonderful, healthy smoothie.
