What I Ate Wednesday #10 and Bailey’s Irish Cream Milkshakes

What I ate Wednesday: Wisconsin style. The past few days I have been home for spring break and have been eating all sorts of heavenly food. My first night back my sister and I went to the newly opened Smart Cow frozen yogurt bar by our house. You know I love my frozen yogurt. This time I went for a sampler platter of sorts, I think I tried triple chocolate, espresso, vanilla, cheesecake, cookies and cream and peanut butter. A little shredded coconut and cookie dough to top it off. Yes.

In honor of St. Patrick’s  Day we made homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream Milkshakes!

Unbelievable. So simple and tasty.

Bailey’s Irish Cream Milkshake

Serves 1

1 cup of natural vanilla bean ice cream

~1/8 cup of Bailey’s Irish Cream

~1/8 cup of almond milk

1 tbsp dark chocolate chips, melted

Just place the first three ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Melt the chocolate in the microwave and drizzle over top. In about 10 seconds the chocolate hardens into a luscious shell. Enjoy!

One of the last days in Green Bay my Mom and I went to Kavarna. My one true love. It is a phenomenal vegetarian restaurant and this time was the first time I had ever been for breakfast. Let’s just say I was not disappointed! For drinks, my Mom ordered a Mexican Mocha and I ordered a soy Chai Tea Latte. Delish.

My daily banana made its appearance with lunch. Better late than never!

For dinner we had a lovely African inspired Peanut and Vegetable Stew. There was sweet potato, kale, kidney beans, carrots, onion, bell pepper and more. Lovely seasonings and all was placed atop a bed of quinoa. Loved it!

A little pineapple and shaved coconut on the side. Yum!

Dessert for the night was a brownie. Nothing like warm brownies straight from the oven!

      Thank you! My Mom made them from a gluten-free boxed mix. It was my first time trying a gluten-free brownie and they were delicious! Super chocolatey and fudgy, just the way I like them :)
