This recipe came from a friend in my gourmet class from college. We did a beverage unit and we were to make a family favorite. She was from the southwest and her dad's family was from Mexico. I had never heard the word "licuado" used in a recipe before. I enjoyed the drink, but haven't made it in a while.
Ahh, summer and iced tea. This is a perfect way to enjoy both. The 1 hr cook time is stand time. As written this is quite a mild tea. If you would like a stronger flavor please feel free to use more tea bags.
The secret to this coffee is the earthy taste of chicory. A dark roast works best and if you mix the chicory in yourself you can vary the proportions to suit your tastes (20-40% chicory for most people). I recommend 25% chicory. The proportion of milk to coffee can also be varied to suit your taste. If you can't find chicory or coffee premixed with chicory in your area, both are available online at orleanscoffee.com/ and premixed is also available at cafedumonde.com/ or neworleanscoffeeworks.com/ or frenchmarketcoffee.com
This is a recipe my Dad invented that has brought my family many a pleasant winter evening. I have tried many different Irish coffees, this is by far the best ever. If you have a problem with caffeine you can substitute decaf coffee; or we have used 1/2 decaf and 1/2 regular grounds when making the coffee.
This is the best tasting, most satisfying, easiest homemade lemonade you will ever drink. What could be more satisfying on a hot summer day than the cool, brisk refreshing taste of lemonade? This is so easy with the help of a citrus juicer to juice the lemons.
Very refreshing summer hit. Got this recipe from a friend who used a combo of fruits to make fruit punch lemonade. The main recipe called for strawberries and I use fresh lemons. Use whatever you have on hand or the easiest.
From Cooking Light magazine. Spanish for "fresh water", agua fresca is a refreshing, fruit-infused drink that is served throughout Mexico. Depending on the ripeness of the berries, adjust the amount of sugar for desired sweetness. Frozen strawberries would be fine in this. I like this with 2-3 times the water or seltzer water for a thinner drink. I also increase the sugar.
This is adapted from Smoothies & Summer Drinks. Freezing the bananas ahead of time makes for a thicker smoothie. To freeze the bananas I usually peel, slice, and then place them in an airtight container and then freeze. This can be made in a blender or in a large pitcher and puree using an immersion blender.
When you order 'tea' in TX you will be asked 'sweet' or 'unsweet'. It will then arrive in a big glass with lots of ice! Here is the way we make 'Swayte Tay" or Sweet Tea! Oh soo goooodd! Dont like it sweet- just leave out the sugar- or splenda.
I love having this as a snack, dessert, or even for breakfast. I have at least ONE a day. It gets me energized and ready for the day. I use one Scoop of ground flaxseed that I purchased from www.flaxusa.com and a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream Flavored Whey Protein. These two ingredients are optional.
