It has been to cold in New York this last week to drink cold smoothies! So instead I though I’d share a recipe for nut milk. It is so much easier than you think to make it yourself. You can use the nut milk as a base for smoothies, make hot chocolate or chai tea, make chia pudding or pour it over your granola.
Raw Almond/Nut Milk
1 cup almonds (or any nut you like – Brazil nuts work really […]

Alkaline diets, PH and low acidity are buzz words I’ve been hearing a lot of lately. The alkaline diet is about eating more foods that are more alkaline on the PH spectrum to help our blood achieve a more balanced PH level. Even though there is a lack of research in this field, it is safe to say that eating more fruits and vegetables are good for you!
The modern wester diet tends towards a lot of processed foods that […]

Are you still scared of kale? This smoothie will finally make you a convert. With avocado for creaminess and pear for sweetness, the kale’s more bitter flavor completely dissapears. But the benefits are still there; minerals, vitamin A, C and K, 45 different antioxidants to fight off free radicals, detoxing properties and fiber for digestive aid.
Hail to the Kale
handful of cilantro
1 cup kale (packed)
½ inch ginger
½ cup coconut water
1 scoop protein powder (hemp, pumpkin or pea […]

After a few weeks of heavy eating and drinking (I’m just assuming here) give your belly a real probiotic and enzyme boost with this delicious, creamy smoothie. The coconut yogurt provides healthy fats and god bacteria to help restore your gut flora. And papaya is famous for it’s potent enzymes that aid in digestion.
Drink up for you belly!
1 cup papaya
1 cup coconut kefir, yogurt ( aka cultured coconut milk)
juice from ½ lime
1 tbsp raw honey

Time for another smoothie. This week I added some extra super power to help us all get through the Holidays! Spirulina is a good source of GLA – the fat our brain most desires, as well as protein and cancer fighting properties. Maybe best of all – it’s a real energy booster – something I think we can all need this time of year.
Oh yeah – and the Prince themed song titles continue.
1 tbsp coconut manna
1/2 cup almond […]

This week’s smoothie has got some green goodness! The avocado adds healthy fat and makes it super creamy and the coconut water add delicious hydrating sweetness. Pear is an under-utilized fruit in the smoothie world, but for no good reason! And I’m sticking with the Prince themed names….
(The Green) Kiss
1 cup Coconut water
1 packed cup of spinach
1 tbsp flax seeds
pure water – add enough to make it creamy but drinkable. Or keep it lusciously thick and eat it […]

Blackberries are packed with antioxidants and fiber. I love eating frozen ones as a fun snack and add them to my smoothies. In this week’s smoothie recipe the blackberry is the star.

1 -2 scoops rice protein (plain or vanilla)
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp coconut manna
pure water – until you reach your ideal consistency
a few drops stevia for sweetness if you need (we all have a different tongue and taste for sweet […]

Smoothies are one of my go to’s for breakfasts – especially when I’m in a hurry. I can quickly trow some nutritious foods in my blender, switch in on, take two deep breaths, switch off – and breakfast is served. If you don’t have time to sip it slow at home, pour it into a jar, and take it to go. Just don’t skip breakfast!
I thought therefor it would be a good idea to share some of my favorite, go […]
