Not every smoothie I make is a green smoothie. Sometimes I just want some color, and to indulge in the unadulterated goodness of sweet, refreshing fruit – and chocolate!

Here’s a delicious green smoothie that blends my favorite tropical fruits with an ingredient you don’t usually associate with a smoothie – basil! The basil goes really well with the pineapple and mango in this smoothie. I only added 5 leaves and it didn’t overpower the smoothie. Adding herbs, such as basil, to your smoothies […]

A few of my readers have been asking for coffee smoothie recipes. I really don’t have a lot of coffee recipes on my site, so I thought I would create some that blend my favorite fruits with everyone’s favorite “bean”. Since I quit caffeine a while ago, I used decaf coffee for this recipe. It’s […]

This is a delicious green smoothie recipe that contains two of my favorite fruits – peaches and strawberries! I used frozen strawberries to give this smoothie a chill. For chilled smoothies, I prefer using only one frozen ingredient since too many frozen items makes it hard to blend, and the consistency turns out more like […]
