Cuckoo for Coconut: Coconut Chocolate Chip Snack Cake with Coconut Glaze

There is no denying that I have a crush on coconut. Wait. Scratch that. I LOVE┬ácoconut. I should probably marry it (except that would be extremely strange). So I did the next best thing. I made a gorgeous Coconut Chocolate Chip Snack Cake with a Coconut Glaze! This cake is extremely moist and bursting with that nutty and creamy coconut flavor (as there is coconut milk and shredded coconut in the batter and flaked coconut on top) and the glaze adds even more coconut flavor! This cake is awesome to make if you have leftover coconut cream from making my Coconut-Lime Piecaken. And to make this deliciously awesome cake even better, it is ridiculously simple and quick to whip up! I think this cake is perfect for brunch, dessert, or snack, so let’s get baking and chowing!

Something Healthy: Matcha-Banana Shake

What do ya know? There’s actually something healthy being posted on Mugs and Makeovers. Good for me! Now I’m not one of those people to eat (or slurp, or drink, or consume, or whatever) things just because they are the latest-and-greatest super-food. I will eat things because they are yummy and make me feel happy. And if that yummy ingredient happens to up that metabolism, then yay! And that’s exactly how I feel about matcha (but seriously, I can’t get enough of this green tea powder; best flavor profile ever!). Fun fact: I was considering naming this blog Matcha, Mugs, and Makeovers. (Come to think of it, why didn’t I?) Anyway, here is a delicious, fresh, fruity, and earthy shake that will refresh you make you glow!
