Mango Strawberry Mocktails

 

M is for Mango Strawberry Mocktail!

This year I'm participating in a bi weekly challenge with some blogging friends to post recipes using all of the letters in the alphabet.  It can feature a food that begins with the letter of the week or the recipe name can contain the week's letter.

 

For this week's letter M I did some freezer diving and pulled out my stash of frozen mango. Today's the first day of at least four that will be in the 90s so I thought a frozen drink would be lovely.


It's strawberry season here and I'd diced up a bunch for another recipe but didn't end up using them all. I added them to the blender with some honey, orange juice and ice and processed them til they were slushy.

I divided it between 2 glasses and then gave the blender a quick rinse and dry.  You can definitely just do it all together in one go but I really wanted the colors to sort of marble together.

I repeated the process but omitting the ice cubes because the mango was already frozen.

I gently poured the mango mixture on top of the strawberry mixture in the glasses.  It didn't quite give me the contrast I wanted, but it was still pretty.

I then topped the glasses with a few extra pieces of mango and strawberry. These are super easy to adapt. If you'd like to make them more breakfast-y and smoothie-like, then you can add a frozen banana and some plain Greek yogurt.

If you aren't in a mocktail mood, then throw in some of your favorite rum or vodka, adding a few more ice cubes if necessary to keep it slushy.

Your lovely mocktail reminds me of a tequila sunrise, Jolene! So pretty and refreshing.
It looks perfectly wonderful! I would totally love this. Looks like a Hawaiian Lava flow cocktail, but I like yours better because of the mango!

I often make mango and strawberry smoothie and serve it in layers for that pretty look. Now I will be trying out this mocktail as soon as I get back home. Just the right drink during the hot season.
This is one "M" recipe I can't wait to try...with a wee bit of rum, of course!!!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
