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).

Strawberry & Blueberry Cobbler Pie


One of my favorite things to do is cook for other people. Whether it’s cooking a delicious meal for friends, family & co-workers, bringing a jar of fresh salsa as a hostess gift to a BBQ or baking sweets that’ll make someone smile. Last Friday a friend of mine helped me out with a project and I promised him a pie as a thank you, then asked him what flavor he wanted. He said he loved berry cobbler which is what inspired this recipe. You may notice in the photos I made two… one was for my friend and one was for my co-workers (I simply doubled the ingredients to make an extra to bring to work.)

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.

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.

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.
