Seriously. Is there anything better than pizza? I consider it to be one of those “perfectly engineered foods”. Kind of like tacos and brownies. It’s always good. And always welcome at my table. No matter what time of day.
This Grilled Lobster and Corn Pizza with Goat Cheese and Fresh Tomatoes is my ode to summer. Fresh corn, tomatoes and basil are in abundance at the farmers markets right now. So I piled them all high up on top of this pizza. And of course, I cooked everything on the grill. Because you know I love my grill. Also, it’s way to hot to be turning on our ovens.
But the real dose of summer comes from the lobster. Living in a seaside New England town means lobster is just about everywhere during the summer months. We even serve lobster at the McDonalds here (I don’t actually recommend you go out and buy this, just pointing it out for general interest). So it only made sense for me to put lobster on a pizza. And lobster pizza is kind of a sneaky way to enjoy lobster without completely assaulting your wallet. That’s some real talk for you.
Like I said, I grilled the heck out of the pizza. The corn and lobster that I used for toppings were both cooked on the grill, keeping my house cool AND preventing my house from smelling like a lobster shack (I have weird issues with fishy smells). But if you prefer to cook the corn and lobster in a more traditional way, go right ahead. I won’t stop you. Just get this pizza done and in your belly!

Chocolate for breakfast. Do I really need to say anything more?
OK, I suppose I could blab a few more sentences here. I wouldn’t want you guys to feel deprived of all my “Liz-isms”.
And I should definitely make sure to tell you that this Chocolate Almond Coffee Smoothie is my new favorite thing to have for breakfast during the week. It seriously has got it going on in the flavor department. You’re going to think you’re drinking a milkshake. But instead, you’re guiltlessly slurping up a good-for-you smoothie loaded with protein, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids and so much more. And did I already mention it has chocolate in it? Yes? Well, it’s a point worth bringing up a second time.
But do you know what this smoothie doesn’t have? Dairy or wheat. Nope. Those things just got right up and walked away.
I used Almond Breeze Almondmilk Chocolate as the base for this smoothie. It’s my absolute favorite flavor out of the entire Almond Breeze line. Because, well, chocolate. Have I mentioned before how I love chocolate…?
I am affectionately calling this smoothie the “Get Up and Go!” smoothie. Because not only does it have a little caffeinated kick, but it’s also made with only FIVE ingredients. Easy peasy. You’ll be ready to take on the morning in no time!
