Spring in the Pluses

The weather is finally catching up to its season and I made my first cup of blended iced coffee (in 2013). Ever since winning the Keurig Mini coffee brewer, I've been making fresh coffee more often than ever! As you can see, I haven't busted out my warm weather cups yet, hence my beverage being served in a mug...a very pretty coloured mug, might I add! 

 If you make your own blended coffee drinks, how do you do it?

I like stocking up on strong coffee ice cubes and keeping them in the ice box. They're super handy to have around in the warmer (or sweltering hot) months when you want that coffee slush but hate that it gets diluted with meting ice cubes!


 The fastest way for me to make a single serving is to use my Magic Bullet along side the ice cubes and Keurig. I start by filling the blender cup full of ice cubes, then I brew coffee right into it. I toss in my add ins (syrup, sugar, milk, cream, flavoured creamers, chocolate etc.) and blend away! Perfect every time and doesn't cost $5. 

I'm thinking of picking up a cold tumbler similar to this one, so I can take yummy drinks with me on the go.  :D






It was a really nice day, so I took a stroll around the yard to check things out. Brought my camera along with me and snapped some pictures. Everything's melting, melting, meeeeeltinggggg!!

Tomorrow I'm heading out to meet Miriam, a good friend who I grew up with. We haven't seen each other in more than 5 years!
