Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Lisa Lillien (A.K.A. Hungry Girl) at her new gorgeous headquarters near Los Angeles, Hungryland!
It was part of a blogging event hosted by Hungry Girl and Dunkin’ Donuts — they were showcasing all of the delicious new flavors in the Bakery Series and I got to try some of the tasty flavors such as:
- Glazed Chocolate Donut (yum — this one was a fave!)
- Apple Pie
- Blueberry Muffin
- Pumpkin Spice
I am the kind of person who puts a lot of SF creamer in coffee, so trying the different flavors of coffee without any additional sugars or cream was interesting. Usually the creamers I use mask the actual flavor of coffee, so it was nice to try it black for a change and really get a sense for what coffee tastes like. I could definitely taste the flavors in each of my samples — the Glazed Chocolate Donut was my favorite one and there was a distinct chocolaty flavor in there. Lisa gave us a few demonstrations about using Dunkin’ Donuts to create low calorie, yummy tasting drinks (as that is how she is best known!) and my favorite idea was the Turtle Coffee Blended Drink. I love caramel and nuts, so this was a great idea that I am going to be recreating many times in my own kitchen.
The recipe for the Turtle drink can be found here, at L.A. Story — be sure to check it out! I loved seeing the different things Lisa used in the coffee drinks — almond extract, almond milk, SF Sundae Syrup — all things I hadn’t thought about adding to my own drinks. I typically go straight to the flavored creamer, so these were great options when I want something delicious, low-cal and fancy without spending $4.50 on a drink at Starbucks. Sign up for the daily newsletter at Hungry-Girl.com — today she shared another amazing coffee drink in the newsletter, the Low-Calorie White Chocolate Mocha — perfect for winter!
If you love Dunkin’ Donuts, you’re in luck! I’ve been offered the chance of hosting my FIRST giveaway — the winner of this awesome giveaway will receive 11 Dunkin’ Donut varities and a mug. How cool is that?!
