Have you ever watched an episode of “Chopped” and think to yourself, “…damn. How do they come up with some of these creations?”
Well, I’m getting a mini-taste of that this summer, so to speak!
Candace and I have been doing a collaboration called the “YBC Ingredient Challenge!” Or, perhaps the younger generation might understand #SSxYBC better. (Ha!) But here’s the skinny: She wanted me to make three recipe posts for her site over the summer: June, July, & August. She mailed me nine ingredients, and I have to use three ingredients each month for each recipe. BUT! Here is the catch: I have to blindly pick them! I had a friend take out all of the ingredients, put them in a bag, and I videotaped myself blindly picking my first three for June’s recipe.
Luckily, I didn’t pick anything too outrageous on this first go-round: Vega One Vanilla Chai All – In – One Shake Mix, honey, and sea salt.
At the time I developed this recipe, I got a really nice summer cold – UGHHHH – and I was looking for something soothing to eat.
Hence, this nice cream! The flavor is really quite lovely; I had read some reviews of the Vega One mix online that were pretty polarizing, but I happened to love the flavor!
Be sure to check out the full recipe at Yoga By Candace! Be sure to check out her blog at the end of this month for the next recipe, as well! Who knows WHAT I’ll pull out of that bag…
