Quick and Easy Allergy Free Trail Mix Recipe

Trail mix is a fantastic portable - and if you skip the kind made with candy and chocolate - reasonably healthy snack. That is nearly impossible to find. It's not that I don't like chocolate (I do,) but can't eat a trail mix containing milk chocolate. If a store bought trail mix doesn't have milk ingredients, it usually has a surgery cereal or some other junk food type ingredient which makes it the nutritional equivalent to diving face first in a bowl of Jelly Bellies and not coming up for air until you've finished the entire thing. Not that I have any experience doing that, ahem. Basic mixed nuts would be a simple switch if only the folks I'd be around didn't have nut and peanut allergies. I think it is totally rude to send your friends into an anaphylactic reaction. A real jerk move. Enjoy Life has a trail mix free of the 8 major food allergens (you can learn more about the allergy free Enjoy Life Seed and Fruit Mix here )

Arnold Palmer Drink Recipe

Hello warm weather. Hello picnics and BBQs. Hello icy cold drinks on hot, hot days. Heeeeeeeeeeeeello summer!

And a big hello to my new favorite friend, the Arnold Palmer, although many of you call it a Half and Half.




The Arnold Palmer drink combines my love of summer lemonade and stand by of iced tea into one yummy drink. The recipe is so simple, I don't have to write it out but I will for the sake of formal written down recipe lover people everywhere.

How to Make an Arnold Palmer or Half and Half




You will need:

Lemonade - choose your favorite. Homemade from lemons (or lemon juice in my case) and sugar, from concentrate, or ready made all work just fine.

Iced Tea - again, choose for your favorite. Homemade from tea bags or ready made will work. I usually leave my iced tea unsweetened but many insist on using sweetened tea for this recipe. Again, either is fine and you can do whatever floats your boat, or in this case, taste buds.

Make it:

1. Combine half a pitcher of iced tea and half a pitcher of lemonade. I'm using iced tea made from green tea because the box of green was at the front of the pantry shelf and moving it to the side to get to the box of black tea bags was too. hard. If you use black tea to make the iced tea for your Half and Half it may look a little darker than what I have pictured here.

2. Chill or pour over ice. Or both. Or not.

3. Drink, enjoy, and repeat as desired.

Sometimes I pour an Arnold Palmer in my reusable water bottle for those times when I am out and about and want something to drink other than ice water. Yum!
