It’s a beautiful November day here in Southern California so I whipped up this slushie to energize me for cooking all day (and cool down, it’s hot out today!) It’s super easy to make- only 3 ingredients! But it was really delicious so I figured I’d post it 😉 Strawberries are going out of season but I bought some 3-packs at the farmer’s market recently, de-stemmed and froze them for smoothies.

Sweet Green Smoothie
(Recipe updated Oct 8, 2014: I made this again this morning but swapped the fruit for apples (in season) and frozen pineapple- it was even better!)
This makes a very large, delicious green smoothie (I split it with my boyfriend in two 32-ounce mason jars).
Fruit & Mint Salad
This beautiful fruit salad makes a lovely dessert, snack or breakfast side dish. It is light, healthy and refreshing on a hot summer day plus it’s packed with lots of energy-boosting vitamins and minerals to keep you going. All ingredients are fresh at the local farmer’s market now, so enjoy them while they’re in season!
This creamy superfood smoothie is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber and even has a little protein to boot. Drink 32-ounces as an on-the-go meal or split it with someone for an afternoon snack! Maca, chia seeds, flaxseeds, coconuts, leafy greens, berries and bananas are all considered superfoods. Hopefully this smoothie makes you feel like a super hero 🙂
Rainbow Coconut Fruit Salad
Yesterday my friend Jenny came over for lunch and she made me this fruit salad that was so yummy I had to share, so I’m calling her my guest chef today on the blog 😉 This delicious and light fruit dish is perfect as a side or healthy dessert this summer. Feel free to swap out the fruits with any other favorite fruits you have that are in season. Jenny picked out the colors based on the rainbow.
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!
Green Cooler Smoothie
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?
Fresh Pico De Gallo Salsa
Strawberry-Mint ‘Cool Aid’
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.
