The smell of cinnamon coming from the oven…

and a warm mug of Javazen in my hands.  Sounds like the perfect happy, healthy and hot winter afternoon!

If you’re wondering what’s in the oven, it’s snickerdoodles, made with a recipe that I just came up with.

coffee + matcha + cacao =

A dream come true for a health conscious coffee lover like me.

It’s no secret that I ❤️  coffee.

Javazen is the perfect drink for my happy, healthy and hot mug!
