I don’t like to admit this, but sometimes I can be a little… lazy. Recently I was feeling ambitious and decided I wanted to make some coconut milk kefir at home. I decided on some grains, looked up how to make coconut milk kefir and then I was like awwwwww hell naw.
As a hater of winter, I’ve been pretty lucky this year. It seems that winter pretty much only started this week here in Toronro, so I can’t really complain (although I most certainly do).
Stick it to winter with these warm smoothies to sip on while you snuggle up inside!
If you’ve never tried ghee, or clarified butter, get on it! Ghee is all the rage in the health world these days due to it’s delicious taste and healing properties, more on that below plus how to make ghee at home!

What the heck is a jicama?
Ji-what-a? Pronounced hee-kah-ma, this hearty root veggie is also known as a yam bean. It is part of the legume family and grows on vines in Central American, South Asian, and the Caribbean.

If you’ve never tasted jicama, imagine if an apple and a potato made a baby – not too sweet and just the right amount of crunch.
