Green Smoothie Cubes

I wish I would have discovered the secret to super fast, healthy smoothie prep years ago! Recently, I discovered the technique of freezing my smoothies in ice cube trays in the freezer. When you are ready to make a quick smoothie, all you have to do is pop some cubes out into a Magic Bullet cup and add some water. No more chopping, measuring, or cleaning, and you have your smoothie ready in seconds. Here is a recipe for one […]

Brazilian Lemonade

It is a great mystery why this special Brazilian drink is called Brazilian “lemonade” when it is actually made with limes. Maybe somewhere along the way people decided limes taste better in the recipe than lemons, and didn’t bother to change the name. This “lemonade” is made with fresh lime juice and zest, with condensed milk to make it creamy. It is a special treat all year round! Brazilian Lemonade Recipe Ingredients 6 cups water 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup […]

Mango Apple Banana Smoothie

Vanilla Almond Smoothie

Almonds are the magic nut. They’re rich with flavor and nutrients, and can play both a supporting or lead role in so many recipes. Here, we’re using almond milk and whole almonds to add flavor and texture to a delicious smoothie that combines vanilla, dates, ground cinnamon and banana. It’s filling and extremely tasty!

Kiwi Berry Peach Smoothie

One of my favorite ways to use up kiwis that are getting too ripe and soft is by adding them to a strawberry peach smoothie for breakfast. In this refreshing breakfast smoothie, I use frozen peach slices and strawberries for the slushy effect, plus fresh kiwi, oats and yogurt to make it a well-balanced breakfast. I personally like to only add some water to get things moving instead of fruit juices, but adding orange juice or any other fruit juice will […]

Summer Sunrise Smoothie

Have you ever had one of those days where you just can’t decide which smoothie you want to make? I was having one of those days recently, and couldn’t decide between a raspberry smoothie and mango smoothie. Both sounded so delicious! I finally decided to make a layered smoothie using both! This layered smoothie reminds me of a summer sunrise from the colors. You can layer it more than just once like I did to make it look even nicer. […]
