It’s Giveaway time again! This is one I am sure you’ll be excited to enter because it is sponsored by KIND Healthy Snacks. If you know about them, I am sure you already are a fan. If you have yet to try their snack bars, you will soon be a fan. Home-made skinny latte

KIND makes the yummiest grab-and-go snacks. I personally am too often out and about and need a snack to get me through until I can get home. One of these bars and a cup of coffee and I am good to go for a while.

Kind Giveaway


I love that they are just nuts and fruit and don’t have any garbage in them, or ingredients you can’t pronounce. That’s why I am thrilled to be giving away a selection of their newest Nuts & Spices bars. They have 5 grams of sugar or less. One lucky winner will receive a ten-bar prize package including these flavors:

KIND Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt

KIND Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan

KIND Cashew & Ginger Spice

KIND Madagascar Vanilla Almond


With a selection of these at home, you can skip the coffee shop and make your own skinny latte. Rules for entry are below the recipe.

  63. Hi. Just found your site and am really enjoying your recipes – and food photography.

    Love lattes (yes, I always use my stovetop Italian coffee maker to make my espresso) and yours looks delish in that gorgeous mug…where did you find that cute thing?

    Thanks much!

    • Hi Rose! Welcome. Glad you found me. The mug was from the health food store here in VT. So random to find it at a place like that, but they have a whole bunch of eco friendly mugs there. I lost the lid to it unfortunately, so it is not a travel outside the house mug anymore.
