CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BANANA BREAKFAST SHAKE

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] [embed]https://youtu.be/SrKg5uf-ud4[/embed] A shake for breakfast? Why not when it’s healthy, right? This consists of six basic ingredients you likely always keep on hand and it can be ready in no time. Chocolate for breakfast, count me in! How could this not be good, though? It has three of the best flavors, banana, peanut butter and chocolate all together in one decadent morning treat. Note that the sweetness of this smoothie comes from the ripeness of the bananas so be sure to use some that are well ripened. If you still would like it a little bit sweeter you could add in a little honey or cut back a touch on the cocoa powder. This is one creamy, protein-rich smoothie you are going to love!

Healthy & Delicious Pickle-Brined Turkey

Healthy & Delicious Pickle-Brined Turkey Recipe

Change up your usual Thanksgiving turkey routine. Using pickle juice in brine adds loads of flavor and guarantees a tender and juicy turkey. Swap options: The weight of kosher salt varies by brand. If you prefer to use iodized table salt or fine sea salt, reduce the salt by half to about 2 ⅛ ounces by weight. For a spicy version add 1 roughly chopped jalapeño, Fresno, habanero or Thai chile pepper to the brine when simmering (depending on your preferred level of heat), and use the brine from 2 jars of zesty or spicy pickles instead of dill pickles.

Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte Recipe

Matcha literally means "powdered tea." When you order traditional green tea, components from the leaves get infused into the hot water, then the leaves are discarded. With matcha, you’re drinking the actual leaves, which have been finely powdered and made into a solution, traditionally by mixing about a teaspoon of matcha powder with a third cup of hot water (heated to less than a boil), which is then whisked with a bamboo brush until it froths. Unlike traditional green tea, matcha preparation involves covering the tea plants with shade cloths before they’re harvested. This triggers the growth of leaves with better flavor and texture, which are hand-selected, steamed briefly to stop fermentation, then dried and aged in cold storage, which deepens the flavor. The dried leaves...
