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 🙂
-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!
This was so simple yet so delicious!! I was not expecting it to taste as good as it did 🙂 Optional add ins could include pumpkin seeds, cilantro, or sesame seeds. Enjoy with these or in the pure simplicity below 🙂
2 cups organic girl greens
1 large stalk celery chopped
About 6 small strawberries sliced
1/4 large lemon squeezed
About 1.5 cups chopped pineapple
Toss all together and be nourished!
Simple and delicious!! Truly satisfying and fresh!! What a spring/summer lunch time treat 🙂
All you need:
-2 cups fresh spinach
-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!
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!!
1 cup chopped mango
1cup chopped tomato
3 green onions sliced
4tbs chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 lemon or lime juiced
1/4 chopped jalapeño or serrano
Chop and toss, enjoy!!!
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 🙂
16oz frozen figs
6oz frozen blueberries
1/2 tsp cinnamon
about 1L water
Blendo all in high power blender!
Garnish with fresh mint leaves (I couldn’t find mine for photos!)
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 🙂
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 😀 ❤
