Coconut and Oreo Thickshake

Sydney heat has truly been awful this past week; way too hot for the last week of summer!

I came home the other day and honestly started to crave some sugar. Not just chocolate… I needed a cooling thickshake packed with oreos, and milk, and ice cream and delicious. This simple recipe is super easy and quick to make, and the best thing about it is that kids absolutely love it.

My baby sister always asks me for this shake whenever our mom let’s her have a bit of a treat. You can make these incredibly fun with toppings, and I will detail just how you can do that πŸ˜›

My favourite topping for a shake like this just include some melted chocolate, some sprinkles, an oreo, maybe some crushed pecan or pistachios, maybe some popcorn… the possibilities are endless! Head over to pinterest or instagram for some insane milkshake inspiration πŸ˜›

See. I told you… simple. I made mine in one of my 15 dollar bottle blenders from Kmart. I love Kmart… the point of saying this is that the recipe is easy on the pocket and is really quite delicious. Have a go at experimenting with different flavours, or chocolates and share your recipes with me! I would love to try them out πŸ™‚

Easy Spiced Strawberry Tea

Summer is well and truly here in Sydney with the sweltering heat, crazy storms, oh and a random tornado warning too. I guess this is what makes Sydney kind of special. It’s unpredictable you know. It’ll be cool and cold in the morning, humid by mid day, by evening the sun will pop out and say hello before nightfall when the horrendous storm begins.

For anyone planning to come to Sydney, keep a jacket, sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, an umbrella, boots, sandals, and probably your entire suitcase with you at all time.

I know I sound really cynical, but in all honestly, I do love the city. I grew up here, and it’s my very bipolar home. Now, in this bipolar weather conditions… I love making my own flavoured teas. Whether in winter or summer, I love having a cup of tea with me. For summer, I bring out the fun fruits to make these delicious infused teas, and they are so freaking easy to make!

These are a bit of a wonder for the big parties in my opinion. Tea is just such a standard in my house and they make for a fun non-alcoholic option for the crowds. I dunno, I think it’s important to serve some fun non-alcoholic options. Most events I go to its all fancy alcoholic drink and cocktails but nothing fun for those that just don’t drink.

This recipe is so simple though. Just boil up some tea and let the fruit infuse in the water. This sort of remind me of an episode of New Girl where Nick talks about serving ‘Tea water’ to drunk men. Don’t worry… I’m not giving away anything here πŸ˜›

But that’s just because I love tea. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. And who doesn’t enjoy strawberries? Actually, I do know a few people that don’t like strawberries… but seriously.. come on.

I hope you guys like this easy recipe!
