Peach Strawberry Green Smoothie

I made this tasty peach and strawberry green smoothie the other day and shared it with my 11 month old son. He is turning into quite the smoothie drinker! I can’t believe my baby is almost a year old!!! I added some chia seeds for the additional protein and a healthy dose of omega-3’s. Just […]

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!

Mango-Basil Green Smoothie Recipe

Mango-Basil Smoothie

Here’s a delicious green smoothie that blends my favorite tropical fruits with an ingredient you don’t usually associate with a smoothie – basil!

Strawberry Macadamia Nut Green Smoothie Recipe

Strawberry Macadamia Nut Green Smoothie Recipe

I love playing around with different types of nuts in my green smoothies. While I’ve used macadamia nuts in raw food recipes, I haven’t really used them in smoothies yet. I thought I would give it a try. Macadamia nuts have a nice creamy texture. They are a soft nut so it’s not necessary to […]

This is a great meal replacement green smoothie for weight loss, cleansing, or for when you just want something healthy.

Pineapples also contain nutrients that may have anti-inflammatory properties. Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple, may also support digestion. Broccoli is a great source of calcium and antioxidants. The pineapple and […]

Starfruit, also known as carambola), lends an apple-like flavor accent to this tropical green smoothie recipe. Starfruits are a great source of antioxidants and vitamin C. Before blending, remove the peel and seeds. The banana in this green smoothie provides the creamy texture and the pineapple sweetens the recipe perfectly, effectively hiding the mineral-rich, but […]

This green smoothie is excellent for both weight loss and cleansing. It’s also delicious! Fresh mint and sweet melon are one of my favorite combinations.
