Ginger Cranberry Smoothie (Banana-Free)

Ginger Cranberry Smoothie (Banana-Free)

Bet you never expected cranberries in a smoothie. That makes two of us. No, I’m not trying to start a new superfood trend. Honestly, this smoothie was born out of the abundance of leftover cranberries from the holidays that are now crowding my freezer. But, […]

Anti-Inflammatory Blueberry Turmeric Smoothie Recipe

Anti-Inflammatory Blueberry Turmeric Smoothie Recipe

Did you overindulge during the holidays? Me too. Two weeks later, I still feel bloated, heavy, and just blah. It seems as though it’s taking longer than usual to feel back to “normal”. It’s kind of like I have a really big holiday hangover. Please […]

Blackberry Smoothie with Walnuts (Banana-Free)

Blackberry Smoothie with Walnuts (Banana-Free)

I LOVE Sprouts. Sure, their selection can be limited at times, but you can’t beat their prices – especially when it comes to organic produce. Case in point, yesterday they had small clam shells of organic blackberries for 97¢. Yes, you read that correctly. Ninety-seven […]

Simple Avocado Blueberry Smoothie (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Coconut Mocha Protein Balls

Coconut Mocha Protein Balls

The Peanut Butter Mocha Protein Smoothie I made last week opened new doors for me. That usually happens. I find a new ingredient and I get obsessed with it for awhile, trying to figure out everything I can do with it. It’s led to some […]

Clean Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Clean Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Despite their not so appealing title, these almond butter fat bombs are the BOMB! (I seriously couldn’t help myself). What are fat bombs? Fat bombs are high fat, low carb snacks. Wait, you want me to eat a snack that is filled with fat? Yep, I […]

Mango Mint Smoothie (Banana-Free)

Mango Mint Smoothie (Banana-Free)

Looking for a creamy, satisfying banana-free smoothie? Look no further, because this smoothie is everything! Full disclosure: mango has never really been my thing, but a sale on organic mango at Whole Foods prompted me to give it another chance and I’m so glad I […]

Banana-Free Cherry Vanilla Smoothie

Banana-Free Cherry Vanilla Smoothie

I love bananas, but sometimes you just need a banana break. The problem is that bananas are the perfect plant-based smoothie ingredient because they help make it creamy without adding dairy. As it turns out, avocado has the same effect. But what kind of smoothie can […]
