Have you seen this already? Probably.
I was a guest over at Camille Styles. earlier this week and thought I’d share my gingersnap milkshake with her and her friends. I think they were a hit.
Lame. I wish this were for reals. The parties and the FOOD would be out. of. this. world, I tell ya.
Little back story. . . the two of us met almost a year ago at Alt Summit, then had a girls [working] weekend in New York, and then met up again recently in San Francisco [that's me in the blue], where we finally met the spouses. Love this girl and if you don’t already, you will. Good times.
As I mentioned over at Camille’s, this is a great dessert option if you’re looking to switch things up a bit. It doesn’t matter how old you are, milkshakes freaking rock. ESPECIALLY if you’re like me and someone makes an awesome, creamy shake and there’s NO dairy or gluten. Life just got pretty amazing, didn’t it.
ps. I froze half the batch and for several days [didn't last more than that], I’d stick a spoon in it and make a nice little dent . You guys, I think it’s my new happy place.
My version here is gluten and dairy free and for the “regular” recipe, you’ll wanna jump back over to Camille’s.
Just a few things. . .
- Please go check out our NEW Health Coaching Facebook page and would love you even more if you “like” us. Pretty please? ps. Registration is now open for the January series.
- If you NEED a chocolate fix, I highly recommend this.
- I’m jumping on a plane early this morning and heading to Seattle for a party hoping weekend. I literally get off the plane, meet my mom downtown for a hair appointment, we change into our party dresses [the bathroom=klassy] and head to a Holiday party. THAT my friend is only the beginning.
- Want to follow my crazy, picture taking weekend? You can right here. Privacy is over-rated.
Cheers to a wonderful weekend and DON’T forget, make Sunday Count.
