I love a challenge. Sometimes, that challenge is to use a strange ingredient in a new recipe. And when my son found a carton of cactus water at the store, I had to use it in a fun new way. Now, I’ve been meaning to make a delicious maple drink for awhile, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! It may sound a little strange, but prickly pear cactus water is already free of prickle (since it’s store-bought), and this mocktail is all about that white chocolate maple flavor with a refreshing hint of that cactus water. Trust me, you’ll love every element of this Maple Cactus Mudslide frozen mocktail. It’s perfect for brunch!

The other day on Facebook, I was talking to a friend about how it seems that we used to only worry about summer bikini bodies. But now, summer bikini bodies start early so we can be ready for our kids’ spring break in March, stay fit all the way through summer, keep a lean body for Halloween costumes (which are mostly skin-tight, even for moms), and then of course, trying to still look good on Valentine’s Day. It becomes a never-ending cycle, and gone are the days about slacking off on a healthy lifestyle during the Holiday Season, or Season of Eating… luckily, you can still celebrate without giving up on your eating goals, because some of the best party food will fit perfectly in your meal plan… seriously! There is such a thing as a brunch that doesn’t break the Points Bank…
