Given that it’s prime berry-picking season, I figured that cobbler would be the perfect showcase for those amazing summer fruits. Sadly, the fresh berries I had got eaten before I could get this one photographed. Therefore, I had to use frozen fruit today! But the fantastic part about this cobbler is that you can swap frozen for fresh and vice versa. Today I used mixed berries, but this recipe also works fantastic with other fruits – sub in to your heart’s delight! Click through to follow along!

Let’s talk Starbucks. I do love me a tasty Starbucks beverage every once in a while (okay, so, I may or may not have a gold card that is currently good through 2018, that’s how much…). A few weeks ago, this secret menu item made the internet explode, so I figured I needed to get on the band wagon and try this thing out. It’s a Strawberry Acaí Refresher (or Very Berry Hibiscus, if you’re in Canada) with the water subbed for coconut milk. AND HOLY SMOKES IS IT GOOD. But being that some days I don’t feel like splurging for my fix, I decided to experiment at home a little, and I actually came up with a few delicious combinations. Click on through for this SUPER SIMPLE, delicious summer drink!

First things first. Throughout the entire writing of this post, I had Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” stuck in my head. Because if you spell “bananas” out without singing that part of the song, then you’re a liar.

This is one of my favourite go-to healthy desserts. It’s especially interesting for me, because I hate yellow and spotted bananas. But this recipe? Deliciousness. Click on through to join me on this warm, caramelized, delicious adventure.
