Mango Banana Nice Cream

I know it’s the middle of fall, but thanks to frozen fruit, take yourself to the tropics any time of year 🙂 This is like a creamy sherbet made of mango, banana, and avocado! Strange right? You don’t taste the avocado, only the velvety creaminess it affords this treat!
You need:

2 cups cubed frozen mango

2 frozen bananas

1/3 avocado

1/2 cup plant milk of choice 🌱 
Simply blend on high.
Unbelievably creamy and delicious!

Berry Acai Smoothie

I’ve been on a daily smoothie kick recently, and this one stood out. I’m trying get more watery, raw, fresh produce in first thing in the morning, plus something to drink is so much easier to take to work! I sweetened this one up a tad with some stevia and some flavor extracts, and the result was rich and creamy!  Super tasty. Plus superfoods 🙂

You need:

-1 sambazon packet of Acai

-1/4 bag frozen mixed berries (so 3-4oz)

-Water to blend (about 2/3 cup)

-Ice to taste (about 1/2 cup)

-Vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp

-Almond extract, 1/8 tsp 

-Stevia, about 7 drops
Throw them all into a blender and pour into a large container (or into cups to serve two) and enjoy! I find a breakfast like this keeps me energized and not dragging through my morning. All that fiber, water, and micronutrients are surprisingly filling!

Sweet Spinach Strawberry Salad

Simple and delicious!! Truly satisfying and fresh!! What a spring/summer lunch time treat 🙂

 All you need:

-2 cups fresh spinach

-1/4 lemon

-5-6 large strawberries sliced

– about 3 medjool dates chopped (more or less to taste!)

I packed this for my lunch today, squeezing the lemon over just prior  to eating. It was heavenly and didn’t taste overtly lemon-y. Really the strawberries and dates shine here!! YUMMY!





Fresh Mango Salsa!

Oh yeah!  Put these on some black bean vegan tacos, a bed of spinach for a fresh, salad, or if you eat fish some lovely grilled salmon.  We had a feast today replete with power greens, fresh avocado, steamed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and purple potatoes, and grilled salmon. It was amazinggggggggg.  My guy does the grilling and I do the veggies in the kitchen 🙂  Does not get more summery or simple!!

You need:

1cup chopped tomato

3 green onions sliced

4tbs chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 lemon or lime juiced

1/4 chopped jalapeño or serrano

Blueberry Fig Morning Smoothie

Another super simple all fruit smoothie for starting out your week right!  Get yourself hydrated and full of all natural energy and antioxidants. I know you need it on a Monday morning!! I sure did 🙂

You need:

16oz frozen figs

6oz frozen blueberries

1tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp cinnamon

about 1L water

Blendo all in high power blender!

Serves 2!

Garnish with fresh mint leaves (I couldn’t find mine for photos!)





Simply Sweet Mangoes and Greens

2 ingredients, that is all I used. You could certainly doctor this one up with some sunflower seeds, cucumbers, diced tomatoes, etc. but I ate it with nothing but spinach and mangoes! Weird, but delicious in its simplicity 🙂

You need:

2 cups spinach/power greens

2-3 small ripe mangoes

Cut the fleshy “cheeks” off of each mango, and cut into cubes. Scrape off from the skin and place on top of greens in your bowl. Then cut away remaining mango flesh from sides and seed. Place these remnants in blender with 1/2 cup (or so) of water. (Alternatively you could use a nut/seed or ‘milk’ of choice). Blend until a creamy sauce results. Pour over your salad, toss and enjoy!! Tasty, summery, whole, real ingredients 😀  ❤
