We’re headed into another long weekend! 🌴🌞So looking forward to chilling away. If your business is open maybe you can serve something refreshing. Or simply enjoy this recipe at home with your family. I so love to entertain CLIENTS.family and friends. I even wrote a book on it Entertaining in your Salon or SPA.

Strawberry Mango Lemonade

Blend and give it a whirl with 1 cup of  frozen strawberries, 2 cups of frozen mango chunks and 2 cups of lemonade that you made.Or cheat and use store bought already made.

This recipe makes 4 glasses of refreshing and delicious lemonade. More if you use smaller glasses.

Garnish with a pineapple chunk for a tropical twist. Since we can’t quite getaway at least we can pretend we are with a few of life’s simple treasures.

Stay hydrated!

I love to engage and entertain my clients and I like to also do it with food. These energy bites are just the thing and the recipe ingredients boosts with fiber too. A friend of mine who is a guest Chef on TV Danette shared this oh so easy recipe with me. I hope you enjoy it too.

1 1/4 cups raw almonds

1 /14 cups dates (pitted)

1 Tbsp honey ( maybe a bit more)

Pinch of salt

Grind almonds and dates in food processor until fine ( a little coarse is ok, too) add honey and salt.

Process until well combined. …it should be sticky enough to form a ball.

Press down in a 8×8 pan lined with foil. Make sure to press down hard, so it really holds together. Let sit approx 1 hour.  Pull foil out of pan, and cut into squares.

If it needs more honey to stick together, that is fine. You could use more dates in beginning if you like.

Enjoy for yourself between services with your clients, serving to your clients,family or friends. YUM!

1 1/2 cups of sugar

2 teaspoons of finely chopped fresh mint 🍃

Next add…

Mother’s Day is almost here …

And your clients who visit your spa or salon need some love and attention. Don’t just just serve the same old coffee,tea and spa water.Think about serving up some delicious fun!

Need a little inspiration? Create a few cute names for a few drinks.

What about a Momtini, MOMosa,Glamma or Pretty in Pink beverage!

They can be alchoholic or nonalchoholic.

Rose all day,Champagne.Sparkling anyTHING. My clients love our champagne and orange juice offerings but they REALLY love our pomegranate or cranberry juice mixed with sparkling champagne.It makes such a pretty looking drink too and the juice is good for their health!

Add a piece of decadent chocolate and serve them on a silver tray with a white paper doilie from  the Dollar Tree!

You don’t always have to go overboard or spend alot of money when showing your cusotmers some unexpected appreciation and love. Sometimes the simplest of things are the best!

Please note:

NOT all of your spa guests are MOM’S. Make sure your staff or you are not wishing all your clients a happy Mother’s DAY. However, you can say today we are offering you an unexpected treat today. Because we think you’re pretty special!!!
