7 green smoothies that will have you feeling like a goddamn super hero.

7 days of green smoothies

I’m pretty sure that green smoothies are the elixir of gods. They make my body feel vibrant, healthy, and, well, like that of a goddamn super hero. So I challenged myself to drink one every day for an entire week.  You guys. I discovered something a few days ago that made me want to bang my head against the wall. Repeatedly. The probiotic that I had been taking to help heal my gut and get my gut flora back in balance contained MILK. As in the stuff that I’ve known I can’t eat since I was a wee lass and have been strictly avoiding for the past two months. You...

Cherry Nectarine Smoothie

Cherry Nectarine Smoothie | gluten free, dairy free, nightshade free

Iiiiiiiiiiit’s smoothie time! What? You thought we were officially done with the smoothie recipes? Yeah right. You’ll have to pry my smoothie cup from my cold dead hands. This recipe is courtesy of Trader Joe’s having the most amazing cherries and nectarines on hand. You know, those big 5 lb boxes of nectarines that are so sweet and juicy and dribble down your chin amazing and are pretty much delicious on every single thing you can come up with. I will say that this one is a little on the time intensive side due to having to pit the cherries. If time is of the essence, I’d suggest you get a bag of...

Peach Raspberry Smoothie

Peach Raspberry Smoothie

I know, I know. Another smoothie recipe. But I have good reason to be posting this filled-to-the-brim-with-peaches-and-raspberries smoothie. IT’S FREAKIN’ DELICIOUS. (I say that about all of them, don’t I?) AND… With peaches being a part of the stone fruit family, I would go out on a limb and say that any of the stone fruits would be great. That means nectarines, cherries, plums, or apricots could all be substituted for the peach if that’s what you have on hand (or want to experiment with something new)....

Vanilla Almond Smoothie

I feel like my smoothie obsession has gone from healthy (and delicious) to I’ve got a serious problem and should start considering another option for breakfast. I’ll consider it … while I sip on a tall glass of vanilla almond smoothie. All joking aside, I wanted to play around with adding a dairy-free yogurt into the mix. So, this smoothie is the result of that playing. I’m not sure I’m a huge fan of yogurt in smoothies, but have a feeling that may have more to do with the kind of yogurt I was using versus an actual distaste of yogurt in smoothies. But that will require a lot of testing. And I’m 99% sure I’m...

Pineapple, Orange, and Mango Smoothie

I half expected that smoothies would have faded out of my life by now. But the truth is, they haven’t. It almost feels like the obsession has only gotten deeper. I have a different smoothie combination penciled in for each day of the week on our weekly menu plan. I’ve been taking obsessive notes about what has been going into each smoothie, and how much, so that I can come back here and share those things with you. I’ve even gone through my Instagram feed and looked over what smoothie combinations got the most interest so that I could recreate my haphazard throwing of fruit in the cup. And even...
