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…

Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Banana-Free)

How many ingredients are on the label of your store-bought salad dressing? Seriously, check. I’ll wait. I’m willing to bet it’s more than three. One of them may even be sugar or some variety of it. At this point you may be thinking, “but, I use ‘lite’ dressing,…
