when Florida Department of Citrus contacted me to offer a mini-cookbook giveaway for readers, i was excited to participate, because citrus is one of my favorite “food groups,” whether as a snack or a recipe addition.

the cookbook is full of innovative ways to cook with citrus, including recipes like crispy gator salad (of course a floridian would name that!), beef short ribs (oh, my husband’s dream dish) with florida orange texas-style barbecue sauce, and florida citrus-peach mint julep (oh, my, southern-girl-heaven).

in the afternoons, i often hit a slump and get a desperate craving for coffee and sugar (i’m working on adding more protein through the day to help with that!), but this coffee frappe finished off my craving with a pop of citrus.

the original recipe calls for sugar and orange juice; we opted for fresh oranges we juiced, and replaced the sugar with raw honey.  i highly recommend this switch – the honey adds nutritional value and a deep sweetness that brings so much more to the flavor!

from their words:

·         Drinking just one 8-ounce glass of 100% orange juice has no added sugar and is an excellent natural source of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, a key nutrient that helps support a healthy immune system/overall health.
