Dairy free friends, rejoice!

Whether you're lactose intolerant, vegan, dairy-free or simply a hyper ice cream lover, stores are being fully stocked with delicious dairy-free ice creams for everyone to enjoy. Just in time for summer!

As dairy-free is becoming more of a thing, it can be hard choosing the right flavors. You're in luck. As someone who has been dairy free for the past 3+ years, I can tell you that this new trend in dairy-free ice cream is life changing. I asked my fellow dairy-free friends their opinion on their favorite ice cream choices and created the ultimate list of dairy-free ice creams, no matter what kind of ice cream you enjoy.

Pop off a top and enjoy a pint of your new favorite guilty pleasure.

1. For the chocolate lover

Häagen-Daz Non-Dairy Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle

This is so chocolatey that you will forget you're not eating real ice cream. It's almost like witchcraft.

2. For the health nut

Halo Top Dairy Free Oatmeal Cookie

Out of all the Halo Top Dairy Free ice creams, everyone I have talked to has agreed that oatmeal cookie is the best one. It's not overly sweet but holds the right amount of flavor to satisfy any sweet tooth. Plus, it's only 320 calories. Let's buy two.

3. For the classic ice cream fan

Breyers Non-Dairy Oreo Cookies & Cream and Vanilla Peanut Butter

If you're more of a single scoop, vanilla with sprinkles type, then these are the ice creams for you. These classic flavors are iconic original, but wait until you try them without dairy.

4. For the cookie fanatic

So Delicious Coconut Milk Cookie Dough

Your cookie dough dreams are not over simply because you don't eat dairy. The coconut milk gives it a little something special, too. It also comes in gluten-free.

5. For the fruit addict

Talenti Dairy Free Sorbetto Roman Raspberry

It tastes like you walked over to a gelato shop in Italy. Perfect for poolside treats or cooling off after a day in the sun. Plus, if chocolate isn't your thing, this will be your best friend.

6. For the carmel dreamer

Häagen Dazs Non-Dairy Coconut Carmel

Picture yourself floating in a sea of caramel, but it's not sticky or gross, it's calming and luxurious. That's what this ice cream tastes like. Think of all your girl scout cookie fantasies, but better.

7. For the ice cream risk taker

Ben & Jerry's P.B & Cookies Non Dairy

This isn't your average non-dairy ice cream. Ben & Jerry's are an explosion of flavor that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Plus, haven't you seen "Parent Trap?" Peanut butter and Oreos are a perfect combination.

Be kind to your baristas, they can make you some pretty great drinks. With the temperature rising and the days getting longer, it's approaching the time to find your summer staple to keep you cool (and caffeinated) over the next few months.

Starbucks offers a wide variety of cold beverages that really hit the spot during the summer months, from espresso drinks to fraps, smoothies, teas and refreshers. As a Starbucks barista, I've had the opportunity to taste most drinks on the menu and receive feedback from customers on the do's and don'ts of cold beverages.

While this is not an exhaustive list, I pulled together some of my favorites to give you, the "Ultimate Starbucks Iced Beverage Bucket List for 2017" that you MUST try this season:

1. Pink Drink

Three words: Basic white girl. If you want a photogenic drink that tastes like a Starburst and makes baristas happy, the Pink Drink is for you. It's a pretty simple beverage... this Strawberry Acai Refresher combined with Coconutmilk is sure to satisfy your hipster needs.

2. Iced White Mocha

This sinfully sweet iced espresso drink is not only one of the most popular beverages on the menu, but sure to wake you up at any time of day. Jazz it up by asking for half white chocolate, half mocha sauce, topped with a mocha drizzle, and you've got yourself an Iced Tuxedo Mocha!

3. Doubleshot on Ice

If nothing else, this quick pick-me-up looks classy while giving you the energy boost you need to get through the day. With two shots of espresso, a bit of milk and classic syrup, this drink is easy to enjoy in little time... it's like a caffeine I.V.!

4. Iced Caramel Machiatto

Surprise, surprise... Caramel Machiattos are actually made with vanilla syrup. Nonetheless, these espresso-topped beverages are absolutely delicious at any time of year, but summer calls for ice! Want to change things up? Ask your barista to make it with half vanilla syrup, half toffee nut syrup to make an Iced Salted Caramel Machiatto!

5. Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher

A sister to the Pink Drink, the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher is a fruit juice-blackberry combo that makes for a pretty chilled beverage to enjoy on the go. The caffeine content is minimal, making it a great option for any time of day.


6. Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Cold Brew is basically Starbucks' version of a smoother-tasting iced coffee with more caffeine. The Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is a standard drink topped with vanilla-flavored heavy cream to create a sweet taste and a marbled appearance in the beverage. Want something with flavor, but not in the mood for vanilla? Try the Toasted Coconut Cold Brew!


7. Mango Black Tea Lemonade

The Mango Black Tea Lemonade is one of the most popular drinks on the menu. Iced Teavana tea mixed with mango syrup and lemonade makes for the perfect combination

8. Iced Chai Tea Latte

Iced Chais - sound so sophisticated, yet so simple to make. If you order this drink, there is a 10/10 chance that your barista will love you for it. Milk mixed with a sweet and spicy chai syrup makes for a classy drink that can be enjoyed at any time of day.


9. Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto

The identifying characteristic that makes a macchiato, well, a macchiato is that the espresso shots are poured on top of the milk and flavoring. Starbucks' Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto is a combination of cinnamon dolce syrup and almondmilk topped with espresso shots, a caramel drizzle and a cinnamon dolce topping to create a delicious dairy-free option in the macchiato family.

10. Sunset Refresher

This secret menu drink is fairly simple to make with a cool lime base, lemonade, lime slices, and ice topped with black tea. When finished, the drink will have an ombré appearance that makes it totally picture-worthy!

11. Iced Caffè Americano

Calling all espresso lovers: Americanos are a Starbucks signature. The drink itself is pretty simple - espresso and water topped with ice, but if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can mix things up with a flavored syrup. This drink is sure to wake you right up, no matter the time of day.

12. Strawberry Lemonade

Want something cold but not feeling coffee or a frap? Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is definitely worth a try! While this drink is not on the menu, most baristas are happy to make it upon request. Just ask for a combination of strawberry flavoring, lemonade, and ice blended together for a slushie-like beverage!

A Love Letter To My Air Fryer

And why you would love an fryer too...

368
views

In a previous article, I wrote about how love to use Trello.com for organizing things. I'm still loving Trello. I've haven't grown bored of it and stopped using it (like I have with some other organizational systems). This time, I'm going to share another item that I love, and it's for one of my favorite things, food! I finally gave in and bought an air fryer, and after my first use, I literally said that it's wonderful! I bought a small air fryer. It only holds about two quarts, but it's perfect for quick lunches.

I thought I'd love the air fryer if it could dry fry food with little to no oil, and it does just that. I'm also in love with the air fryer, because I could simply put the food in it, set the timer and live my life for a few minutes until the food is done. I don't have to stand over it and watch the food cook. That makes the air fryer a winner! Did I mention that it really does work?! Yes, it does work. Now, you could buy foods that are already breaded and throw them in the air fryer, but if you want to go the healthier route, you can use bread crumbs, flour, and eggs to make your own crispy coatings for your foods. Dipping your food in your own homemade batter cuts out some of the salt and added chemicals in the frozen pre-fried foods.

You can also fry foods that do not even need a homemade batter. Without using the batter, I've made sweet potato French fries and burritos in it. The tortilla for the burrito turned out nicely crispy, but I didn't leave it in the air fryer long enough for it to be crunchy. The sweet potato fries came out nice. I've tried making crispy chickpeas with Italian seasoning, but they weren't to my liking. However, I have loved everything else that I've made in the air fryer. Sometimes I just put a quick meal in it, just to re-heat it, since I don't use a microwave. I just think that using the air fryer is healthier than using microwaves, and I love that I don't need to put my food in a special box or anything for it to be really crispy. If you love fried chicken or fried fish, you'd love this little machine as much as I do!
