Energizing Matcha Smoothie

I’m a frappuccino addict. A green tea frappuccino addict to be precise. It all started years ago when I friend introduced me into the the world of these frozen delights. But through the years, I’ve come to realize that even thought they might contain beneficial green tea, the frappuccinos are also fun of sugar (or artificial sugar) and other crazy, not beneficial ingredients.

Thankfully, I’m also addicted...

Apple Pie Popcorn

Are you a fan of popcorn? I am! Seriously, I keep popcorn kernels in what most people would deem their sugar canister. Popcorn is my favorite meal… umm I mean snack!
