This smoothie is SO delicious. You don’t need any additional liquids because the watermelon is made of more than 90% water- as soon as you blend it, it becomes a sweet, delicious liquid base!
Quick story: I have been working so much at the office (day, night, all weekends) that I haven’t cooked one meal for myself in two weeks straight. Instead of my normal healthy meals, I was drinking large almond and soy milk lattes like it was my job and eating meals packed with preservatives, soy, wheat and not enough fruits and veggies. The result?
Another recipe that is so simple and easy to make, but wanted to post it to share the idea. Strawberries are coming back into season and they’re so flavorful, adding them to your water is another great way to enjoy them! I call this ‘cool aid’ because after the strawberries soak in the water, it becomes a sweet fruit beverage.
Ever make coffee and realize you don’t have any non-dairy milk in your fridge or cupboard AFTER brewing your coffee? That happened to me today, however I did have some raw almonds on hand so I made this up on a whim and it turned out to be a happy accident! An almond-cinnamon latte is what came from the experiment and it was deeee-licious. So if you ever run out of non-dairy milk… before you run off to the store in your PJ’s or robe, check your cupboards for raw almonds, cinnamon and a little cane sugar and make your own instead!
A sweet tropical treat.
This juice is light and delicious. Refreshing cucumber will keep you hydrated and help smoothen your skin and hair, while clementines are rich in immune boosting vitamin-C.
Simple limeade in a glass makes a nice treat. Half the sugar of regular lemonade, plus vitamins and enzymes from raw lemon and lime. Stock up on limes and lemons at your local farmer’s market and store them in the refrigerator to last longer.
