About Me

I started this blog to keep track of my kitchen creations. I love cooking and eating. In 2008 I was diagnosed with RA. Food started becoming a huge problem. I needed to find a better way to eat the flavors I love. All the recipes I create are driven by my desire to eat good food that won't create extra pain and inflammation in my internal ecosystem. While the recipes are wholesome, the language is not. I swear. I use the word 'fuck'. A lot! I make no apologies for that. It's just a fair warning. I'm raw and real. Happy cooking! Even happier eating! Cheers! Angie

Horchata Smoothie

Horchata or Orxata, is several kinds of traditional beverages from Spain and Latin America made with a variety of things including tiger nuts (Spain) rice, almonds, sesame seeds, barely, jícaro, (Latin America) and a variety of spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and rum. 

Horchata has become one of my favorite things to drink and I wanted to do more than throw some already-made shit in the blender with ice but I also wanted this to be easier to make than the real thing. 

The picture isnt the greatest. It was so damn good that I chugged it before I realized I forgot to take a pic. 

2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup of almond butter
1/4 cup of raw almonds
1 banana
6 Medjool dates 
3 tablespoons of cinnamon 
12ish ice cubes

Throw all that shit in the blender until it's blended!  Easy peasy!
