Strawberry Date Smoothie

I love dates!  Medjool dates that is….and dates with my handsome husband of course.  So, you should try a strawberry date smoothie. If you haven’t discovered Medjool dates, you’ve got to run out and get some.  Don’t think of them as prunes.  Or, dried plums, whatever.  They are similar in nutrition, but taste so much better. These things relieve constipation naturally. With all the soluble fiber (the best kind) they keep things moving.  So, they’re a great compliment to a...

Frothy Chai Smoothie

If you’re craving a Frappuccino and you just don’t want the calories or get in your car and sit in a long line at Starbucks, this is a great alternative.  An ice cold frothy chai smoothie is just the ticket on a hot summer day. Sometimes, I want a little treat that isn’t fruity.  I know it has bananas in it.  But, I put a banana in nearly every one of my smoothies.  And, even if you’re not into them,...

Tropical Turmeric Smoothie

As you can tell I’m a big fan of smoothies.  I have to have restraint not to post every one I make.  Pretty much every day I have smoothie in the afternoon.  This one I call tropical because it’s got your mango and pineapple.  Of course I threw in some turmeric. Like all my smoothies this was made with stuff I had available.  It turned out awesome!  I’m remembering this one for sure. Right now pineapples taste like candy, so you definitely...

Banana Kale Smoothie

Banana Kale Smoothie

Follow Me! Banana kale smoothies have become a staple at our house.  Kale has been the it green for the last few years and for good reason.  It packs twice the vitamin-C as spinach. The problem?  Most people just can’t stomach it.  It’s kinda bitter right?  The best and easiest way to get our leafy greens is in a smoothie.  And we can hide the bitter flavor with other things like bananas. This is my go-to smoothie more than anything else....

Healthy Chocolate Smoothie

Follow Me! Who wants chocolate in the afternoon and it’s actually completely healthy?  I do! After a while, finding a healthy protein snack in the afternoon got old.  Honestly, I don’t think I can stomach another protein bar. So, after rolling in from a trip and no fresh produce available.  I found a few things to make a healthy snack.  And I had a chocolate craving. You know what happens when you get a chocolate craving….it turns obsessive! So, I dug around the house and found...
