Have you ever made a special drink from scratch?

I’ve made a few drinks from scratch, such as:

  • Starbucks-style frappuccinos. Back when Starbucks was closed during lockdown last year, I tried to make my own frappuccinos at home. They actually tasted pretty decent.

  • Dalgona coffee I tried this out at the beginning of lockdown in March-April 2020, but… that’s a time I wish I could erase from my memory. Now I can’t stand even thinking about Dalgona coffee, because I used an awful-tasting instant coffee, and it just reminds me of how awful that time was. (It’s also related to the reason I used to hate the song Psycho, but that’s a different story.)

  • Root beer We have this root beer concentrate here in Mexico that you can buy in a bottle and make your own root beer with ice and mineral water. It’s different than American root beer, but it tastes good. (It’s sold near my house, and the brand of root beer concentrate is my oldest nephew’s name. :yellow_heart: )

Yeeeee the classic Filipino chocolate drink using tablea. I made it with some extra milky, creamy, and sweet ingredients that were leftovers from some kind of shake my dad and sister made and has been my favorite drink for a while.

No :pleading_face: But I only drink water, tea, protein shakes and lemonade so there really isn’t anything else I’d be interested in

Said Frappuccino is currently killing me.

I make really good fruit tea. What about you, @Foodies?

I tried making milk tea, but it tasted weird.

I just tried matcha today for the first time. It’s very earthy.

My favorite is a smoothie, I’ll write a recipe. I’m really a fan of smoothies, satisfying and refreshing. I also do it in my juicer, because I don’t have a blender, but my Breville 10 Best Juicers (Summer 2022) – Reviews & Buying Guide works great without a blender
Green smotthie ingridients:
Milk– 1 1/2 cup of milk, or any nut milk
Spinach– 2 cups fully packed

mix and grinder in your juicer or blender, bon appetit!
