Pineapple-Avocado Green Smoothie Recipe with Pear

Pineapple Avocado Green Smoothie Recipe

I love this green smoothie! Not only are pineapple and avocados delicious, but they are both very good for you. Pineapples have anti-inflammatory properties and are great for people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. They are also a great source of fiber. Just one cup of pineapple contains 9% of your daily recommended value of […]

Healthy Coconut and Macadamia Nut Treats

I got the idea for these healthy coconut and macadamia nut treats when I moved from Massachusetts to upstate New York this summer. I needed to eat up the food in my refrigerator before the move, and that’s where this tasty little treat idea came from. I had a bag of Macadamia nuts and cashews […]

However, they can be stored in an air-tight container for up to 48 hours. Smoothies may separate when they sit, and the texture can change. Some smoothie combinations might […]

Papaya-Strawberry Beta-Carotene Blast Smoothie


This smoothie is absolutely delicious! I call these types of recipes “tropical fusion” because they blend flavors from the tropics with local, seasonal fruits and veggies. I added a carrot to this smoothie to boost the vitamin A content. Your body converts the beta-carotene in fruits and vegetables into vitamin A. Carotenoids in carrots also […]
