New York "Egg Cream" - Rawfully Tempting Style

Who remembers New  York style Egg Cream? My mom prepared these for us when we were younger using seltzer, chocolate syrup, vanilla extract, and milk.  I think the original recipe was made with egg, but ours never had egg in them. This was just a quick and  yummy beverage Mom whipped up! Well, I'm so excited because I created a HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE that is so very reminiscent of this childhood elixir!!!  When I took my first sip there was an instant recognition...and flashback.  I gave a sip to W and asked, "What does this remind you of?" Not being from NY, he sensed it was familiar, but did not grow up with it.  If you lived on the East Coast in the 60's...when the soda man actually delivered the seltzer bottles to your home, then you know what an Egg Cream is...

"Root Beer Float" Smoothie

As a little girl I'd get utterly giddy at the thought of a Root Beer Float, and to this day, it's connected to many happy childhood memories. As a recipe developer, my goal is to RE-create comfort foods, replacing processed ingredients with healthy ingredients. While visiting a local spice shop, I came across this Root Beer Extract and could not resist. The aroma alone, sent me down memory lane. I was inspired to create! While not an actual "soda" the flavor is quite reminiscent of Root Beer Floats. Just thinking about some raw vegan vanilla ice cream wiht this..YUM!  But for now, this smoothies, inspired by childhood memories, please this little girls' taste buds..I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Sunny Cherry Mango Smoothie

I had some leftover mango in the freezer along with delicious fresh cherries. On top of that, a tray of freshly sprouted sunflower shoots was smiling at me. Why not combine them all?

This was such a pleasant change and W and I enjoyed it a lot! Remember this is just a suggestion. Please feel free to make any changes, depending upon what you have available at home.
