Poor Scott arrived home Monday morning, after being out of town for a week, with a terrible head cold that lead to the dreaded sinus infection. The first thing I made him when we got home form the airport was this lassi. Thanks to the sweet orange this drink is full of immunity boosting vitamin C, and healthy probiotics from the plant yogurt too. There is a little bite from the sesame, and the banana rounds it out to an all around creamy consistency. This was my first try at a lassi and I can see why they are so popular! It tastes like pure sunshine, and while I can’t help but associate it with golden summer, I know this will also be wonderful in the winter months when our immune systems are down and the sun is a bit weaker in the sky.
I hope you enjoy you’re weekend and make the most out of the last month of summer. Do you have any exciting plans? We will be embarking on our end of summer camping trip for a week coming up soon. More on that exciting adventure to come. Happy weekend folks! – xx
If I could have a few of my favorite bloggers feed me this weekend I would choose Renee’s starry night smoothie bowl, Emma’s apple + lemon + thyme crumble, and anything from #drinkthesummer thanks to the amazing Sherrie who put on this wonderful celebration.

Isn’t this dress just the cutest? I want to play in it in fields of daisies all summer long.

For the longest time it has been my dream to sell everything we own, buy and adventure mobile, and take a year off to explore every NP in America. Now The Outbound has done all the planning for me! I’m loving this road trip map.
I’m itching to try making my own water kefir, and think this fall I might finally take the plunge. It seems so easy and healthy. Plus, anything that makes me feel like a scientist I’m all about.
