Smoothies

Summer’s Essentials in a Glass

When warm weather hits, strawberries and watermelon are a must! This smoothie combines both making it very hydrating due to the high water content, contains electrolytes, and is nutritious and super easy.

It Tastes Just Like Berry Pie

There are 3 different berries in this smoothie, so it is loaded with concentrated antioxidants! I also added in the superfood lucuma which adds a lovely creamy taste to the smoothie, reminding me of the beautiful flavors of a homemade berry pie.

Banana Mint Chip Smoothie

This tasty smoothie is loaded with potent antioxidants found in the cacao nibs, heart-healthy electrolyte potassium from the banana, bone-healthy calcium from the almond milk (but only if it’s calcium-fortified) and contains digestive properties from the mint leaves. Altogether this smoothie tastes like a healthy mint chip milkshake, so it makes for a nice mid-afternoon snack or as a part of any meal. Enjoy!

Turmeric Mango Smoothie

I wanted to put my frozen mango to use, so I decided to combine it with the powerful spice, turmeric. The amount of health benefits turmeric has blew me away, so this smoothie is super healthy, super bright, and an excellent choice when you want to change up your smoothie routine.

Coconut Cream Smoothie Bowl

Smoothies don’t have to be limited to a glass, mix up your smoothie routine by pouring it into a bowl! Variety is a tool to combat boredom in the kitchen, not only by using new recipes but also by putting a fun twist on your tried and true recipes.

Purple Watermelon Smoothie

Due to the high water content of watermelon you don’t need to add water or any other fluids to the blender if you follow this recipe! It’s refreshing and an added benefit: a new study is out that says watermelon helps relieve muscle soreness. Get this vibrant purple recipe!

Peaches & Cream

When you think of some of the best food combinations a few that come to mind are peanut butter and jelly, butter and toast, chocolate and sea salt, and yes, peaches and cream. This smoothie combines fresh peaches and banana for a sweet flavor and blends it with creamy coconut milk and chia seeds to get a smooth finish that satisfies the palate with Peaches & Cream

Cacao-Nut Mango Smoothie

I love to mix up my morning smoothie routine. This recipe is a new, tasty addition to my list of quick and easy, nutrient-packed smoothies. It’s packed with popular super foods like coconut, cacao, and goji berries, and it’s also an excellent source of antioxidant vitamin C, thanks to the mango.

Maple Mango Carrot Smoothie

I just learned about the coolest thing, Maple Water. That’s right. Pure maple sap from a maple tree that provides an abundance of electrolytes with minimal sugar and a sweet taste. For any juicers out there who aren’t big fans of coconut water this is a new liquid to try. It also tastes fantastic in this smoothie with mango and carrots. Enjoy the recipe!

Triple Berry Oat Smoothie

I love oatmeal. I love how much it fills me up, keeps me energized, and tastes good with just about any topping I can think of — berries, banana, almond butter, nuts, granola, etc. However, when the temperatures start getting warmer, my hair starts frizzing more, and one step on into the NYC subway platform has me sweating, I can’t say I’m craving something hot for breakfast. That’s why smoothies become my go to, especially this one when I want my oats, but don’t want to be cooking over a warm stove! Enjoy this fiber filled smoothie.

In the summertime I love to incorporate fruit into savory dishes. The summer months, when the best tasting fruits are available, are all too short, so in this dish, I took advantage of fresh pineapple to sweeten up a common Thai dish. Enjoy this delicious, easy, and colorful recipe.
