Good ol’ shave ice!

I love shave ice- it’s so refreshing! Can’t beat the top three flavors that make “the rainbow-” strawberry, banana, and vanilla. It makes such beautiful colors. What makes shave ice even more exciting to eat is the cool toppings you can add on top, such as tapioca balls, mochi balls, fruit, fruit jellies, custard, pudding, ice cream, azuki beans, condensed milk, taro, and get this, strawberry jam! Yes, you read me right- jam! Tried that with our shave ice and it was AWESOME! It paired so well. I thought it would be weird, but it wasn’t. It was really good! Genius!

Ordered this shave ice from Coffee or Tea? at Pearl Kai Shopping Center. They have two locations. The first location is based at McCully Shopping Center. This joint has amazingly delicious milk teas, and all different kinds of varieties to choose from!

Here is an article of the best shave ice joints on O’ahu: http://www.best-of-oahu.com/hawaiian-shave-ice.html. It’s all about the fine, smooth ice, that melts in your mouth, and the variety of flavors and toppings, too!

Happy new week!

Peanut butter smoothies for International Women’s Day!

Happy International Women’s Day! Today’s review is on peanut butter smoothies. Yum! It’s my new love when it comes to smoothies. I’ve been craving it so much lately.

Last week, I went to Extract Juice Bar in Downtown and ordered one of my favorite drinks from there: Peanut Butter Jelly Time. The smoothie consisted of: peanut butter, bananas, strawberries, and grapes. Yummy! I drank it so quickly. It was so good! Cravings satisfied! Ah!

The next day that same week, I was craving peanut butter smoothies again and decided to make my own. Haha! I had some frozen bananas in the freezer and decided to make use of them.

Bam! Bello!

My specialty consisted of: ice, soy milk and Lactaid milk,Ā frozen bananas, peanut butter, and grapes.

The grapes makes it so much better! Next time I have strawberries, I will definitely add those in. And maybe some blueberries, too. Haha! It’ll be awesome!

Cheers!
