After our snowy trip to Sundance I’ve been craving a taste of summer. It’s clementine season so I picked some up from the market and made some clementine fizzes while planning our new tropical adventure.

Ingredients :

3 clementines

1 teaspoon honey

1 bottle dry white wine

1 bottle sparkling water

Makes 4

Directions :

Put a drop of honey and juice a half a clementine in each glass. Mix well until honey dissolves. Add  white wine, about 6 oz per glass, and top with sparkling water. Garnish with a clementine slice. Enjoy while pretending you’re on a sunny beach.

SUNDAY BITES AVOCADOS-1This Sunday I wanted to share a super easy recipe for a healthy snack I have been making all summer. These are avocado cups with grated cauliflower rice and tomatoes with red pepper. They’re technically raw and vegan but you can just ignore that part. Happy Sunday!

Ingredients:

2 avocados

Half a head of cauliflower

1 small red pepper

Handfull of cherry tomatoes

Green onion

Salt and pepper

Makes 4 avocado cups

Directions:

Start by grating the cauliflower. Mix with finely chopped red pepper and green onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cut avocados in half and scrape out a little bit of avo to make room for the filling. Fill each cup with the cauliflower mixture. Top with two small slices of cherry tomato and garnish with a few small slices of green onion. Serve and enjoy any time you’re in the mood for a quick healthy snack.
