A Smoothie to Help You Kick the Candy to the Curb

Easter is right around the corner and images of pastel colored eggs, chocolates or sugary treats are front and center! This year try a pastel colored yummy, nutritious smoothie as a great energizing snack or light meal. This smoothie tastes a bit sweet but because of all of the fiber-full fruits and veggies it can actually help to curb sweet cravings.

Berry Oats & Goji Spring Smoothie

This refreshing spring smoothie is light, tasty, and packed with nutrients. The base of fresh or frozen berries provides a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants, while the flax and hemp add healthy protein, healthy fat, and fiber. Antioxidant-rich goji berries are also a highlight of this smoothie and adds a nice crunch as the garnish. This smoothie makes for a great breakfast, or post-workout recovery drink as it provides extra protein and carbohydrates for muscle repair. For added flavor try garnishing with cinnamon!

Green Pear & Walnut Smoothie

This is a take on one of my favourite salads! I always love to add one type of fruit and one type of nut into my salads such as strawberries, mangoes, apples or pears with almonds, macadamias, walnuts or any other variety you desire, this gives it great flavour and texture and mixes it up and makes for a more interesting tasty salad or in this case a great smoothie.

Nutty Bunny Smoothie

With a little inspiration from a new juice bar that just opened, I created my own concoction of carrot and ginger juice blended with almond milk and a banana and more healthy ingredients that make this a new favorite drink. It sounds a little nutty, but it’s a must-try! Get the recipe.

Blueberry & Goji Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls (also sometimes called Acai bowls) are becoming increasingly more popular, so I decided to give it a try, and was quite pleasantly surprised! These smoothie bowls seems to be less filling than a traditional smoothie and can be a great way to pack a lot of nutrients into a small serving. What’s also great about these smoothie
bowls is the variety they allow, because you can add virtually anything to them. Find out what I added to mine!

Very Berry Chocolate Smoothie

Enjoy this rich, creamy, chocolaty smoothie loaded with antioxidants and healthy fats. The cacao powder is all natural and comes right from the cacao bean, and together with the berries adds tons of antioxidants. It’s quick and easy to make and can be a great part of any breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon pick-me-up.

A Natural Way to Sweeten Coconut Water

Some people do not like the taste of plain coconut water and the flavoured sugared varieties are certainly a no-go zone. So, here is a recipe that is super easy and a quick way you can flavour your own coconut water to enjoy the high electrolyte content while also enhancing the flavour and adding extra plant based nutrients with your fruit selection.

Fig, Almond & Date Smoothie

The figs looked so plump and yummy at the market that I knew I had to make a recipe with them. What I came up with reminds me of and tastes like a biscuit (or some of you may refer to it as a cookie!). Enjoy this salty, sweet combination that your whole family will love.

Here’s to Your Heart Smoothie

This Valentine’s Day be good to your heart and treat yourself to a superfood-rich, delicious smoothie. A diet rich in plant-based foods and healthy fats may reduce the risk of heart disease. Now that’s something to love! Get the recipe.

Rich & Creamy Red Velvet Smoothie

This is a creamy red velvet chocolate smoothie — perfect for you to make for your honey on Valentine’s Day (or for yourself of course). It’s also perfect for those days when all you want is chocolate but also want to consume wholesome goodness! Get the recipe for this nutrient-dense, delicious and decadent smoothie.

Serve this super simple tasty dish as an addition to a healthy meal, or even as a meal by itself. The chickpeas are a good source of plant-based protein as well as a source of iron, folate, potassium, and fiber. When paired with the garlic, tomatoes and spinach, the garbanzo beans are tasty and flavorful.
