Watermelon Mint Lime Slushies

These watermleon slushies are literally summer in a glass.  Nothing is better on a hot, humid, sweltering summer day than these frosty babies.  They have it all: sugar sweet watermelon flavor combined with zesty, tangy lime juice and fresh, sweet, herby mint.  The more ice you add the frostier they will be. This recipe is

Vegan “Nutella” Smoothie Bowl

Nutella, in smoothie bowl form!  Why didn't I think of this before? There is something addictive about hazelnuts plus chocolate with a hint of vanilla and a touch of salt.  It is the perfect combination and incredibly decadent. I basically took these star ingredients from Nutella and combined them with hazelnut milk, ice and riced frozen

Wild Blueberry Pie Smoothie Bowl

Wild blueberries are a nutrition powerhouse.  Here I blended them with creamy ingredients and added hints of vanilla and cinnamon to create a frosty breakfast bowl that is sure to satisfy.  It is a fun and healthy way to start the day. These smoothie bowls have a velvety, deep-purple color and perfectly sweet flavor.  It really

Vegan Healthy Birthday Cake Smoothie

Now that the girls are getting older, we have started some fun family birthday traditions and this birthday cake smoothie is one of them.  It is basically vanilla birthday cake in smoothie form.  I wanted to share this recipe with you because my girls quickly inhale it whenever I make it and think it is the

Healthy Shamrock Shake

It is March and McDonald's is already offering their St. Patty's Day signature drink, the Shamrock Shake.  The tagline for this drink is "cool, minty and full of luck."  Sounds great until you read the fine print.  It is not only full of empty calories but it contains chemicals, additives and food dyes.  The ingredients

Sunshine Smoothie

This smoothie is giving me brightness, life and all the good vibes lately.  It is simple to make and tastes so creamy, citrusy and refreshing.  When I'm craving something nourishing and fun this is what I make.  I usually enjoy it first thing in the morning or as a post-workout snack. To make this smoothie

Vegan Apple Pie Smoothie

I am a year-round smoothie kind of girl.  My morning just feels incomplete if I don't start it with a nutrient-packed smoothie. I just find them to be so easy and refreshing in the mornings.  Even in winter I love to cozy up to a smoothie with a sweatshirt, warm blanket and cup of steaming hot tea

Creamy Pitaya Beet Smoothie

This smoothie has been giving me life lately.  It is my go-to reset smoothie and it tastes absolutely incredible.  It is creamy, sweet, earthy and has the most vibrant magenta color.  I love when nature makes gorgeous colors like this. I'm loving this smoothie because it gets me a fruit, a vegetable, plant-based protein and

Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie Bowl (+ Vitamix Giveaway)

You can enter to win two Vitamix blenders at the bottom of this post (directly below the recipe).  Good luck! I have been into no-fruit smoothies lately.  Nothing against fruit at all (love fruit and eat it every day), but sometimes I like to use smoothies as a way to sneak more vegetables into my diet early

No-Fruit Smoothie (aka Purple Sweet Potato Smoothie)

This smoothie tastes like a thick and creamy (purple) milkshake.  It is naturally sweetened with dates and purple sweet potato and flavored with sweet cinnamon and vanilla.  It basically tastes like dessert. Smoothies are typically known for helping to sneak in fruits into your diet.  But, more and more people are using smoothies to sneak in

Chocolate-Covered Cherry Acai Smoothie Bowl

The chocolate-cherry combination has always been a winning one in my book so I figured why not put it in smoothie bowl form?  Smoothie bowls are a fun and beautiful way to cram in loads of nutrients into one filling breakfast.  I love to decorate mine with toppings that provide different textures.  Anything crunchy is great

Blueberry Veggie Smoothie

Sneaking vegetables into smoothies so you cannot taste them is my new favorite healthy food hack.  It sort of feels like I'm cheating at life.  Having something that tastes so sweet and decadent but is secretly full of loads of veggies seems so deceiving.  But, I'm very pregnant and the majority of this pregnancy I have

Creamy Citrus Matcha Green Protein Smoothie

This has been my go-to smoothie lately.  So many nutrients are packed in the most delicious, filling and refreshing smoothie I have had in awhile.  I never would have thought citrus in a smoothie would do such a great job of masking the greens and matcha, but it really does.  This green smoothie will hydrate
