3-Ingredient Creamsicle Smoothie

This is my go-to smoothie when I'm looking for a quick, refreshing immune-boost.  This recipe serves two, but honestly sometimes I gulp down the entire batch myself.  One batch has an entire orange in it (minus the rind).  This means you are getting all the amazing benefits this fruit has to offer including all the fiber [...]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

Each year, September rolls around and as I start to mourn the end of summer I also start itching for some pumpkin in my life.  Last year, my favorite pumpkin recipes included Pumpkin Pie Vegan Overnight Oats (the perfect, easy fall breakfast), Garlic-Maple Pumpkin Hummus (you just have to trust me on this one - amazing!) [...]

Healthy Chocolate Mocha Smoothie

This recipe title sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?  It is sort of like a copy-cat, healthy version of a Starbucks Mocha Frappaccino.  But without 9 grams of saturated fat and over 60 grams of sugar (!) AND over 400 calories (!!).  Woah there! This nutritious smoothie has all the amazing qualities of a mocha [...]

Tropical Green Protein Smoothie

My morning breakfast routine was in a bit of rut.  Coming out of an unseasonably cooler spring, we have now been hit with this hot summery weather and there is no turning back it seems.  I knew I needed my breakfast routine to sort of catch up to the sunshine.  Believe it or not, I now [...]

Creamy Golden Pineapple Vanilla Smoothie

This smoothie makes me feel like I'm on vacation.  Sweet and tropical frozen pineapple chunks are blended into a thick, creamy, refreshing and luxurious smoothie that is 100% raw, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free and refined-sugar free (with a nut-free option). As everyone in my life knows, I have smoothies daily.  Smoothies are an easy way to [...]

Healthy Strawberry “Milkshake”

I'm always pleased when a recipe comes together quickly and easily with just five simple (and healthy) ingredients.  And this one really tastes like the real thing but without the dairy and refined sugar.  This vegan spin on a strawberry milkshake is not only thick and creamy but is bursting with sweet strawberry flavor with a [...]

Healthy Matcha Frappuccino

Did you know a Matcha Frappucinno at Starbucks is over 400 calories and 65 grams of sugar!?  While matcha itself is super healthy, these blended sugary and high calorie beverages are not so much.  Here, I lighten-up and veganify (is that a word?) the popular matcha drink. I have been trying to like matcha for so [...]

Green Aid

Talk about a reset drink: Green-Aid to the rescue!  When I need to start fresh, I go for this five-ingredient, easy to make drink.  It reboots my systems and literally makes me feel like I'm glowing from the inside out.  It more than quenches my thirst and provides loads of beneficial nutrients.  I find cucumbers and parsley help [...]

Healthy Orange Julius

This drink is like a liquid creamsicle (think: vanilla and orange flavor combo).  I feel like a sophisticated kid drinking this frothy, cool, creamy, orange-y sweet treat :) It is not thick or quite as filling as a milkshake or smoothie.  Instead, it is lightly frozen, slightly creamy and very frothy.  A classic orange julius is made [...]

Beet Me Up Smoothie

Feeling beat up this winter already?  When I need to detox, feel energized and give my body a fresh start I turn to this cleansing smoothie.  It is sweet, refreshing and creamy and doesn't taste like you are downing raw vegetables.  It is easily the most vibrant smoothie I have ever made.  It's bright pinkish-red color says it [...]

Almond Butter Cup Smoothie

Who wouldn't want an almond butter cup smoothie for breakfast?  What if I told you that this smoothie is rich in antioxidants, protein, healthy dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals?  This smoothie makes me feel like I'm a total superfoodie and a kid all at the same time.  It is really a magical chocolate experience. This smoothie [...]

Pink Frozen Lemonade

Summer is not officially over yet (not until Sept 22nd at least)!  It is important to stay hydrated especially throughout thehot summer months. We are made up of roughly 60-70% water and it is important that we replace what is lost through everyday activities and workouts.  Even being slightly dehydrated can have a negative affect on [...]

Watermelon-Lime Berry Fusion

Health Benefits The star of this recipe is clearly the watermelon which is technically a vegetable and part of the cucumber and squash family.  Who knew!?  This vegetable in disguise also contains high concentrations of lycopene which is a powerful antioxidant that may reduce your risk of cancer and other diseases.  Enjoy the taste, immediate [...]
