Cultured Almond Milk

Are you including probiotic-rich foods in your diet? Including coconut water kefir, cultured vegetables, and this raw almond milk kefir have helped enormously to rebalance my inner eco-system, and restore my health and vitality. Those of you who have been following me for a while would be familiar with my life-long battle with candida. You can read more about my personal story here. But, just briefly, I had tried every anti-candida diet known to man, and nothing really worked until I…

Chocolate Banana Maca Smoothie

If you want a protein-rich, energizing, nutrient-dense smoothie that tastes like a dessert, this is it! I very rarely create recipes using 3 bananas! But, what the hell. Here we go! This blend is rich and absolutely chock-full of nutrients and plant based protein. You could add more leafy greens if that makes you feel a tad less cheeky. I have used my homemade hemp milk as the base for this smoothie. As I mentioned in that post, hemp seeds are rich in vitamins, minerals, healthy…

Hemp Milk

Commercial hemp milks are dark in color, and have an unpalatable grassy flavor. But, homemade hemp milk is really fresh and delicious, is loaded with high quality digestible protein, and is super quick and easy. This hemp seed milk recipe is really basic, and you can adapt it to your taste preference. The best part is, you don't have to soak the seeds. So, you can be enjoying a glass of homemade hemp milk in minutes. Hemp is an incredibly powerful food, and I highly recommend…

Mango Coconut Curry Smoothie

This exotic mango green curry smoothie is one of the most incredible smoothies I've tasted. "Curry Smoothie?" I hear you say. Be open to trying something different, because this blend is epic! I get thousands of emails from readers saying that they feel cold and damp when they juice and blend in the winter. I always recommend adding warming foods like cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, chile peppers, and fennel to smoothies and juices. Add curry powder to the list, too. This curry smoothie…

Sunflower Seed Milk

Sunflower seeds are loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory agents. They're a good source of protein, fiber, essential fatty acids, calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, potassium, manganese, selenium, and vitamins B and E. Like pumpkin seeds, these sensational seeds also contain significant amounts of tryptophan to alleviate anxiety and aid sleep. Sunflower seeds have a high fat content and are subject to rancidity. Always purchase from a supplier with a high turnover…

Raw Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

After sharing my decadent chocolate hazelnut nutella smoothie yesterday, I wanted to share a more forgiving dessert for those of you on low sugar, low sodium, anti-candida, anti-cancer, alkaline diets, or for those of you health conscious foodies who want something delicious without all of the sugar. Well, I don't mind tooting my own horn and proclaiming that I have hit the jackpot with this pumpkin pie smoothie that is vegan, alkaline, and completely sugar free! I created this…

Pumpkin Seed Milk

Are you including pumpkin seeds in your diet? Pumpkin seed milk is a fun way to include these nutrient-rich seeds into your diet. Pumpkin seeds are one of the highest plant-based sources of protein containing all essential amino acids. A handful of pepitas makes up almost half of the recommended daily allowance of protein. Pepitas are also a rich source of iron, with one cup delivering almost half of the RDA of iron. Pepitas are also a good source of zinc, to bone health, and…

Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Smoothie

It is Valentine's Day this week, and I have been saving my most decadent make-your-sweetheart-weak-at-the-knees chocolate hazelnut shake for this occasion. Valentine's Day is a fabulous excuse to spoil yourself and your special somebody, and this smoothie that tastes like liquid nutella delivers in spectacular fashion. I am going to offer a disclaimer right off the bat and say that this is not a low-calorie or low-sugar smoothie. This shake is luxurious, decadent, and all about the…

Hazelnut Milk

Homemade raw hazelnut milk is a culinary gift from the gods! I don’t tend to "milk" hazelnuts as much as other raw nuts and seeds, as my mind always wants to pair them with chocolate for decadent treats like pralines, home made ice creams, hazelnut butter, and chocolate spread (Nutella)! However, plain slightly sweetened hazelnut milk makes a delicious treat on it's own. It is a wonderful chilled drink, or can be mixed with some raw cacao for a chocolate hazelnut milk that is divine!…

Vegan Blueberry Pie Smoothie

Those of you who have been following me for a while would be familiar with my penchant for "pie in a glass" smoothies. I love them. Liquid pie! What's there not to love? If you've tried my apple pie smoothie, pecan pie smoothie, sweet potato pie smoothie, banana coconut cream pie smoothie, or lemon cheesecake smoothie, you'll understand the obsession. Now, while these rich decadent smoothies are not the most low-calorie, healthiest smoothies on my site, sometimes it just has to be all…

Vanilla Chai Green Smoothie

This Vanilla Chai Green Smoothie is one of my favorite smoothies using the homemade Brazil nut milk I posted last week. The Vega Vanilla Chai all-in-one protein powder is so delicious you don't have to add much to get it to taste amazing. After trying almost every protein powder on the market, I still the Vega products are some of the best on offer, and they're constantly improving the flavor, texture, and nutritional profile. While I maintain that eating whole foods is the best way…

Brazil Nut Milk

As fond as I am of almond milk, I like to mix things up and make a variety of plant-based milks for nutrient and flavor diversity. Brazil nut milk is in my rotation because it's nutritious, and unbelievably delicious in smoothies. Brazil nuts are rich and creamy, and loaded with beneficial nutrients. They're one of the richest sources of selenium (about 2,500 times more than any other nut), making them a fantastic complete vegetarian protein with a full amino acid profile. Just two…
