I have been feeling dehydrated lately, so on a break from work I stopped by home really quick and made this delicious fruit smoothie packed with electrolytes. All four ingredients in this smoothie contain potassium + the coconut water is filled with sodium, magnesium & phosphorus too.

Strawberry-Banana Slushie

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).

Vega Chocolate-Banana Protein Shake


This was super delicious and it reminded me of one of those Wendy’s frosty shakes I used to drink when I was a kid- only this version is way healthier, plant-based and protein-packed.

Hopefully this smoothie makes you feel like a super hero 🙂

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?

Strawberry-Orange Fruit Slushie

I used to love slushies but the ones I loved came from a machine and had no actual fruit in them. This slushie beverage is packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber. And unlike the machine-made slushies, this one only has 1 tsp of cane sugar per serving, the rest of the sweetness is from the fruit.
