Chocolate Veggiechino, Greens & Proteins

When coffee is your guilty pleasure, it can’t hurt to try to make it a little healthier. Greens & Proteins replaces the cream entirely with soy or almond milk, and makes a puree with cacao powder, dark chocolate chips, avocado and whole, flavored coffee beans. What you won’t realize is that there’s also your favorite green leafies in there, such as kale and collards, as well as raisins, flaxseed and vanilla. A bit of stevia sweetens whole deal. Your latte has nothing on this.

Have your teacake and champers, too

By Xania V. Woodman

The Mandarin Oriental Tea Lounge menu tells the charming if perhaps condensed history of the afternoon tea ritual. Lady-in-Waiting to Queen Victoria, the Duchess of Bedford, it says, experienced “a sinking feeling” at about 4 p.m. each day. A woman in need of a pick-me-up if ever there was! And while pots of tea and little plates of dreamy meringue cookies and dainty sandwiches may have helped set the Duchess back to rights, we find that nothing lifts spirits quite like bubbles. For $18 extra, you can top your tea service off with a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne.
