Grown Up Mocha Leches Shake

So now that I opened the bottle of Wineheart Tres Leches Vinoleche that I had purchased for a Girls’ Night In, I have been doing some fun ‘mixology’ with it and other things I already had in my freezer, fridge or pantry.

Today’s libation uses the Wineheart Tres Leches, some Café Con Leche Ice Cream (that I used in these Quick and Easy Chocolate Chip Mocha Tarts) and chocolate rice cereal.

Tres Leches Peaches & Cream Drink

I had planned to have a Girls’ Night In back before Thanksgiving, but things just didn’t work out.  It’s such a busy time of the year for everyone, between those who were traveling for the holiday, other events and sick children, I decided to postpone it for another time.  That however left me with a large bottle of Wineheart Tres Leches and a bottle of Peach Schnapps, which I was planning to make drinks with.

Iced Green Tea Crème Drink


This is really different than anything else I’ve used before.  For those of you who don’t know what Matcha is – it’s green tea, but not like the kind in a tea bag, or loose leaf as it were.  It’s powder that’s ground up from the green tea leaves.  Hence it’s very Kermit green hue.  This also means you consume the entire leaf providing your body and mind with a maximum concentration of Polyphenols and EGCG.  The difference between Matcha and brewed green tea?  UP TO 137x THE ANTIOXIDANTS!

Vanilla Nut Protein Shake made with the Nutri Ninja | Ninja Blender Auto-iQ System

I have a confession to make.  The only blender I’ve ever had in my home has been a cheap $15 one that we actually picked up to do a homeschool science experiment a number of years ago.  I never really felt that I needed one before, until I started making smoothies, iced coffee drinks, shakes and the like.  Only to find out that cheap blenders just don’t do well with the cups of ice.  At least not in a short amount of time and not without that smell of thinking that the motor is going to burn up on you.

Skinny Milkshakes – Only 50 Calories!!

Skinny Milkshakes Only 50 Calories

The temperatures have once again skyrocketed here in North Texas.  And we’re doing everything we can to cool down.  With a few trips on the horizon next month, I’m trying to not eat too many calories these days as I know I’m going to blow the calorie counts when I’m traveling. 

Did you know what the average 8 oz milkshake has in terms of calories?  256.  Yikes!  But I love them.
