Zesty Sprouted Limeade Green Smoothie with Sprout Living

Are you including sprouted foods in your diet? Live sprouts are one of the most magical health-promoting foods on offer. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and complete proteins, sprouts are not only raw foods, they're live foods that transfer their alkaline life energy into our bodies. But, they don't always taste so great. The Sprout Living Sproutein powder is a great superfood supplement, and offers a much more palatable way to include sprouts in your diet. This powder is raw, vegan,…

Sprouted Strawberry Basil Lemonade Green Smoothie

Are you including sprouts in your diet? Sprouts are one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet, and I hop into them with reckless abandon. Sprouts are rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, and live enzymes. They're living foods that continue to grow in nutrients after you harvest them. Once you pick your sprouts and refrigerate them, their vitamin content increases as they slowly keep growing! This is very different from many fruits and vegetables which start losing their…

Grape Parsley Lemonade Green Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

I love parsley, I love grapes, and I love homemade lemonade. So, needless to say, this grape parsley lemonade green smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app ticks all the right boxes for me. It's full of delicious refreshing zesty summer flavors, and is loaded with goodness. Italian flat-leaf parsley is fantastic for adding into green smoothies because it's low in calories (1 cup contains about 20 calories), incredibly cleansing, and is a nutritional powerhouse. The levels of…

Apple and Mango Madness Green Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

Have you tried using baby bok choy in a smoothie? Include it in your green smoothie rotation as it's relatively mild in flavor with 1 cup going into most blends all-but unnoticed. In larger amounts it can get bitter. The flavor of baby bok choy is easily masked by sweet fruits like pineapple, mango, banana, apple, pear, citrus, berries, and grapes. Baby bok choy is rich in vitamins A and C, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, and fiber. It also…

Banana Coconut Cream Pie Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

This banana coconut cream pie smoothie is epic, and I don't mind sayin. Those of you who have been following me for a while are well aware of my penchant for vegan pie-in-a-glass smoothies. The apple pie, pecan pie, sweet potato pie, blueberry pie, peach pie, cherry pie, and lemon cheesecake smoothies are pretty special. While this banana coconut cream pie smoothie is not the most low-calorie smoothie on the site, it would be right up there with the tastes-like-ice-cream kale shake

Savory Sun-Dried Tomato & Cilantro Green Smoothie

A while ago, I talked about savory gazpacho-style green smoothies in the spicy tomato gazpacho grab post. Thank you for all of your emails, tweets, and facebook comments about these smoothies. Many of you commented on the garlic, ginger, and onion, and how you found it a bit too pungent first thing in the morning. My friend Katy recently discovered she has an intolerance to garlic. I secretly wept on her behalf, As devastating as I found this piece of news, (you'll be pleased to know…

Sweet Kiwi Green Smoothie

I love kiwi fruit. Growing up in Australia, we had an abundance of it. My mum was always cutting one in half and handing my sister and I a spoon, and we'd scoop out the creamy (but slightly fuzzy) flesh for a quick healthy snack. Originally from China, these fuzzy little balls of wonder were called "gooseberries", then later "sunny peaches” after they were brought to New Zealand by Chinese missionaries in the early 20th century. They were then discovered by a savvy American, who…

Vegan PiƱa Colada Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

I am so excited to share this piña colada smoothie. The reason why I am so proud of this little triumph is that the secret ingredient is one of the most bitter wild edible greens on the planet - dandelion greens. Most people who brave including dandelion greens into their greens rotation are usually repelled after the first attempt because of the overwhelming bitterness, that typically requires a lot of sweet fruit to balance out. While, I do not recommend drinking this pina colada…

Nifty Nectarine Smoothie

The simple things in life are the best. That sums up how I feel about this nectarine smoothie. This simple recipe is light, refreshing, and has a delightful sweet flavor and incredible creamy texture because of the ripe fresh nectarines. Nectarines come second only to mangoes for me in their solo ability to cream up a smoothie. Because of their natural velvety texture, nectarines are brilliant additions to smoothies. and you don't need to add bananas, avocado or raw nuts. Their…

Spicy Tomato Gazpacho Grab Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

I get so many emails from "green smoothie newbies" (as they refer to themselves) asking how to transition from fruit-based green smoothies to savory green smoothies. My answer is always the same: "Make vegetable green smoothies that taste like delicious gazpachos." I've found that this is the easiest way to transition into more alkaline green smoothies that contain less natural sugar. Sweet smoothies are delicious, and there is no doubt that mixing fruit with leafy greens is the most…

Vegan Lemon Cheesecake Smoothie

Ooooo....I am so excited to share this smoothie with you. It tastes just like a melted lemon cheesecake. I need to warn you, this one is hard to quit making. This has a tangy lemon taste on the front end, then a touch of sweetness and creaminess from the cashews and banana in the middle, and then a zesty lemon twist on the back end. I've fallen in love with the Sprout Living lucuma protein powder, so I've included that as an optional booster. That addition makes it even creamier. For…

Vegan Peach Pie Smoothie

To those of you in the U.S., Happy 4th of July! I'm celebrating with a piece of peach pie. Or, more accurately, a pie in a glass. Those of you who have been following me for a while are aware of my penchant for pie-in-a-glass smoothies. My apple pie, pecan pie, sweet potato pie, pumpkin pie, cherry pie, blueberry pie, and lemon cheesecake smoothies are s'blended. I love pie-in-a-glass smoothies because they satisfy a craving for a piece of pie without the need to bake. They're also…
