Soothing chamomile tea with ginger, turmeric and honey

Vanilla matcha lattes (no special equipment needed)

Vanilla matcha lattes are one of my absolute favorite things to drink – they are so incredibly delicious, energizing and good for you! I have been obsessed with matcha since last year when I first discovered it and I drink a cup of matcha tea almost everyday (simply mix matcha and how water) + I love to come up with new exciting ways to use matcha, but this one will always be one of my favorites!

I didn’t really have any of the equipment (milk steamer, milk frother etc.) and it just seemed...

Fruit infused (detox) water

I already did a quick post on infused water here, but since it was mostly pictures I wanted to do another post to explain some of the benefits of infused water and why I absolutely love making it. Infused water is a great alternative to soda as it is all healthy, has no added nasties and is close to being completely calorie free, but still has an amazing taste and is a lot more exciting than drinking plain water. Personally I find that infused water helps me drink more water and stay hydrated throughout the day, which is very important as most people (myself included) struggle with drinking enough water. Drinking water has so many benefits for your health and...
