If it looks like Summer…

…it must be Summer then, right?  *no jinxies!*

The sunny weather has been upon us a fair bit this last week or so and as such I’ve been trading my hot oatmeal and never ending cup of coffee for cooler eats and drinks.

Tiff and I used up an expiring Groupon for the new frozen yogurt bar in town…Qoola.  So glad Victoria got in on this new hot trend.

At first bite I wasn’t too sure about their “original” flavour, but by the bottom of the cup I was pretty taken with the tangy yogurt mixed with fresh fruit, coconut and a bit of chocolate for good measure. :)

I’ll try the vanilla next time.  Cuz you know there will be a next time.

Due to an overzealous purchase of yummy mangoes I had a few that were looking to be used up pretty damn quick.  What to do with almost overripe fruit?

Smoothies of course!!  Mango, banana, coconut, vanilla and almond milk.  Oh my yum!

A fizzy blast from the past!

Taking it to a grown up level. :)  Mixed with soda water, fresh blackberries, and a lime slice.  Sip that in the sun and tell me it isn’t fun!

Ripple chips scream Summer (which is weird because in our family they also scream Christmas) and Ranch flavour reminds me of the several hundred bags of Cool Ranch Doritos I consumed as a teenager. 

These are better.  But just as dangerous.

And hands down the most consumed beverage of the season thus far…iced coffee.  This one is homemade but my weekly spending dollars have most certainly found their way to Starbucks and McD’s as well.

Tomorrow I make iced tea.  I may just float away before Summer actually arrives.
