I recently made an AMAZING smoothie from a Vegan Smart Nutritional Shake packet, almond milk, blueberries, and banana. I added the blueberries last minute and I'm SO glad I did. I have a whole blog post about it over at

Berries and berries! Combined raspberries and blueberries with kale and almond soy milk.The sweet combination and the purple-pink color is something I must have twice a week. So Delicious!

My favorite is red grapes, banana, and baby spinach.

8 oz frozen cauliflower 1/2 c skim milk 2 T cocoa powder sweetener (your choice, to taste) 1 t. hazelnut flavoring 2 T cacao nibs In a small bowl, blend the cocoa powder & sweetener with enough HOT water to dissolve the powder, then mix in the hazelnut flavoring & the milk. Pour this into a blender; add the frozen cauliflower and blend well until smooth & thick. Stir in the cacao nibs. Who knew cauliflower could taste so yummy as a milkshake???

My best smoothie happened accidentally! A failed batch of freezer strawberry basil jam with chia seeds became the base when it didn't set thickly enough. Now I have 7 more jars in the freezer just waiting for their chance to do the blender dance!

I belong to a garden exchange (we exchange fresh produce and herbs once a month that grow in our garden. Different from food exchange! Every month I have fresh fruit which I blend up into a smoothie. But my favorite smoothie so far was when I received a box of hachiya persimmons. Which I added to my morning smoothie of plain yogurt, rice milk, seeds(mix flax, chia and sesame), frozen banana, and spinach or swiss chard! The color of the smoothie from the persimmons is amazing.

I love green tea ice cream but not the fat & calories so I make this instead: 1/2 of a banana, 1/2c. plain fat-free yogurt, 1/4c. orange juice, 2 tsp. macha (green tea) powder, 1/3 scoop of vanilla protein powder, a handful of fresh spinach leaves, and a few ice cubes. Perfect after a workout, but tastes like dessert!

I made an awesome one this morning, with 1 cup greek yogurt, two cups frozen strawberries, 1 cup orange juice, and 2 tbs chia seeds (all estimates). Otherwise I follow this formula: Add almond milk or coconut milk to blender, then orange juice. Next add spinach, followed by frozen fruit. Top with one banana and lots of chia seeds, and blend.

Vegan smoothie: 1 cup almond milk, one tbls. chia seeds, one tbls. ground flax seed. At this point i blend well to gel the chia seeds. Add a lot of spinach and alot of kale, you cannot taste either one in this drink. One apple, one orange, one banana, one cup of black or cannelli or any bean rinsed well to remove the salt and one cup of berries, (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries etc.)We do cut up the bananas and freeze them and use frozen berries for convenience unless they are in season. After blending all together we add 2 cups of ice and make it into a beautiful healthy shake that will hold you until lunch.

I look forward to summertime when I blend plain Greek yogurt and white peaches. I also use white nectarines. The fruit is grown locally and purchased from the Farmer's Market. I also just throw in any fruit getting over ripe with the yogurt rather than have it go to waste. Plums with the nectarines and/or peaches is a nice combination. Adding ice is optional and to taste.
