How is this for breakfast? Kiwi, pineapple, cucumber, carrots, strawberry, lime. Very slightly sour, light and refreshing, vitamin C, A, B, potassium and fiber-rich, hydrating and nourishing. Ready for today’s 10k!
This green frostie is full of fiber, vitamins C, K, and E, potassium, a bit of protein, and copper, and is also hydrating, refreshingly sour, and light. The color comes from blending 3 kiwis with 1/2 a cucumber. Instead of water ice, I used ice made from mango and papaya juice. The juices from the fruits and the cucumber are more than sufficient to create a frosty, delicious drink. Enjoy!
Well now that you’ve completed a work out, don’t you deserve a sweet treat to refuel, speed up recovery, and give an electrolyte kick?
I made some blueberry sauce from 2 cups of blueberries, flaxseed, and a tiny bit of almond milk, and covered with it one banana,then sprinkled coconut on top. Very satisfactory!
I love Manhattan. No matter how many times I visit, it never gets boring, it’s never the same.
During this weekend’s trip to he Big Apple, I was given the idea to make my own frozen, raw, vegan desserts from a raw chef at a small vegan cafe near Central park.
I took 2 mangoes and 1/4 papaya and blended them with 1 1/2 cup of almond milk and 1 cup of water. You need the sugary, thick consistency of the juice to use as the “glue” for your Popsicles. I chopped up pears, strawberries, kiwi, and pineapple, and added blueberries, then placed the bits of fruit in a muffin pan and poured the mango papaya juice in each. You can anchor the Popsicle sticks in the chunks of fruit, then put in the freezer for about 1 hour.
Aren’t they beautiful? Not only are you enjoying the perfect summer dessert, but also getting great nutrients out of it!
Lemony, delicious, light, filling Greek olives and roasted red pepper hummus. I used:
1 large can of chickpeas
1 cup of olives
2 large roasted red bell peppers
1 tablespoon of garlic, minced
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Blend! This hummus has a strong flavor of olives and lemon. It goes perfectly with bland crackers and veggies.
It’s wonderful to be able to come home to a large sunny back yard, play with the pup and, as you are enjoying your brand new running monsters (new shoes–wooohooo!) and planning the route for your evening run, beat the heat with this:
6 frozen strawberries
2 cups of frozen blueberries
1/2 cup of raw almonds
1/4 cup of coconut
1 cup of almond milk
tadaaa! icy, thick, delicious, and very refreshing.
