Pineapple Ginger Green Smoothie


At this time of year I am always faced with a dilemma…

It is getting cold!

And…

Too cold for smoothies {it seems some mornings}.

Nevertheless, this is also just the perfect time for adding anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting ingredients like ginger to your cold morning or afternoon menu.

So when it’s cold, you still want an excuse to drink smoothies, and you want to feel like you sipping a smooth treat in a tropical region somewhere, what do you do?

I thought, why not have a pineapple ginger green smoothie.

Pineapple for tropical, and ginger for spicy, healthy niceness!

Turns out, it was tropical, it was ginger spiced, it was just perfect for what I needed!

Also, as a side note, this recipe tastes good with and without the baby spinach, so I hope you will give that a try too!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of almond-coconut milk
1/3 cup cold water
2 cups of baby spinach
2 ripe bananas
2 cups of frozen pineapple chunks
½ - 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger (start with ½, and add more to taste)
1 tbsp milled flax

Instructions:

Place all ingredients as listed into your blender, and blend until smooth (it’s a smoothie right?)!

Best,

Blackberry Strawberry Smoothie


Here is an antioxidant-rich sweet and tart delicious smoothie!

I was able to find some blackberries and strawberries and thought I would share :)

How sweet huh?

It is super simple, and berry yummy!

I decided to get fancy and place this smoothie in one of my pretty white German cups and saucers.

Finished this berry deliciousness with a dessert spoon because filled with fresh fruit, it is a dessert!

Ingredients:

3/4 cup to 1 cup dairy free milk (start with 3/4 cup...add 1/4 cup more if needed)
2  ripe sweet bananas
8 oz. coconut yogurt, I use So Delicious brand
2 cup strawberries, frozen or fresh
1/2 cup blackberries, frozen or fresh

Instructions:

Add ingredients to blender as listed, and blend until smooth!

Garnish: Extra fresh berries, if on hand.

I know you will love it!
