I can’t stop with the micro greens lately! This smoothie makes delicious use of them. It’s raspberry – mango base compliments the earthier flavor of Sunflower micros perfectly, creating a subtly sweet nutritional powerhouse. Have a great day!!!
Green smoothies have quickly become a regular part of our routine, (here are two that we love) so much so that it’s already time to shake things up a bit in the ingredients department. Which is why I’m so glad to have begun to learn about the super-high nutritional content found in micro-greens, the teeny leaves found in the produce section next to the lettuce. They are often confused with sprouts, and understandably so – while the name seems to […]
Here’s a question I wish I wasn’t asking myself right now: why did I wait so long to dive into green smoothies? I know the unfortunate answer, and I’ll admit it. It’s because #1) I love my berry smoothies, and #2), the unfortunate part, I didn’t think they would be good. That could be because at times they can look a little gross, which is entirely my own fault for blending green (kale), orange (papaya) and purple (wild blueberries) together […]
Early yesterday morning, I was setting up to make our new favorite blended breakfast, the delicious Winter Smoothie featured here about a month ago. I’d stopped by the Farmer’s Market on Saturday to re-stock our beet supply so we could enjoy several more of these citrus season optimizing smoothies and opened the fridge with a smile – I love reaping the benefits of planning ahead. I grabbed a fresh beet and set it with the rest of the Winter Smoothie […]
Happy January 31st!!! Even though we are looking at some seriously low mercury plus extra-icy wind today, I am so excited to share this smoothie, because it maxes out seasonal produce to the best extent I’ve seen all Winter. It’s citrus season, which means that right now we get to enjoy the best tasting oranges, grapefruits, limes and lemons of the year. Not only that, but also the best variety. Enter Blood Oranges, which almost taste like a raspberry crossed […]
Before diving into the warming holiday flavors of December, I took this morning to dust off the cobwebs after last week’s indulgences – Thanksgiving of course, leftovers included, and lots of ice cream – and started the day with this reliable smoothie. Add the following to the blender for a filling and delicious antioxidant breakfast: – 1 Cup frozen cherries – 1/2 Cup frozen blueberries – 1/2 Cup frozen mango – 1/4 Cup vanilla yogurt – 1/3 Cup plain Greek […]
This is one of the most delicious smoothies I’ve had in a long time, plus was a satisfying and sound way to start the week. It’s creamy, thanks to just a little coconut milk, and thick courtsey of some flax. Tastes a bit like pumpkin pie, with a gingery finish. Easy: 2 cups carrot juice 1 heaping cup frozen cherries 4 tablespoons flax seeds 1/4 cup coconut milk 1/2 inch of fresh ginger, sliced Squeeze of honey Blend, pour, enjoy! […]
Here’s a great coffee smoothie I will definitely make again. It’s pretty rich and can stand alone as a meal, or accompany a light breakfast. (In fact, it’s probably best viewed as more of a treat. A worth-it treat, but a treat none the less.) Add the following straight to the blender: – *little* bit dark chocolate bark (1oz or less) – 1/2 cup coconut milk – 4 dates – 4 ice cubes – 1 – 1&1/2 cups coffee, cooled […]
