I’m not ready to let go of summer… I know it’s nearing the end of September, and the weather today feels more like late October, but I’m still grasping on to the warmth of the sun and whatever summertime recipes I can easily whip up! Maybe you’re feeling the same way, which is why I’m sharing two delicious smoothie recipes from DRINKmaple. Forget coconut water – maple water is where it’s at! (Okay, I’m just partial to maple flavor anything. 😉 ) It’s a refreshing bottled water with just a hint of maple – perfect for a hot day.
I spent an afternoon this summer photographing these recipes with DRINKmaple co-founder Kate Weiler. And here’s a link to locations where DRINKmaple is sold. Enjoy!
