One aspect of raw veganism that I especially like is the beauty of just about anything you can prepare. And it’s not enough that blending all the gorgeous natural colors and flavors of fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts gives you delicious medley of aroma and texture; in those colors live unaltered nutrients ready to fuel a healthy, fit, happy lifestyle.
And on this Friday night, I thought what better thing to do than share some of this beauty in the festive mood of the upcoming weekend.
Just to boost the joyous spirit a bit, I offer you a shot. Greenish, sweet, very aromatic, rich in vitamins C, A, K, as well as iron, water, fiber, and some carbohydrates. For this beauty, take about 3 cups of kale, 1 large kiwi, and a large slice of water melon. Add some mint for even more flavor and…enjoy!
If, however, you are in the mood for a more girly kind of drink, I think a pinkish, sweet, rich cocktail just might do the trick.
This cocktail is bursting with vitamin A, amino acids, and antioxidants, is quite fruity, with a hint of fresh lime.
Blend together a mixture of cherries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and blueberries.
Add a cup of chopped up mango, a cup of almond milk, a little bit of kale, and the juice from one fresh lime.
The perfect refreshing deliciousness in PINK!
Finally, one of my favorites–quite the filling, potassium and fiber – rich, creamy treat. Add one banana to 4-5 cups of kale, 1/2 cup of ground almonds, a pinch of flaxseed, 1 cup of almond milk, and 1 cup of spinach. I would have this nutritious smoothie before, as well as after a strength work out any day.
I hope you are enjoying a lovely Friday night and looking forward to a great weekend. Cheers!
