Frozen Blueberry/Spinach Smoothie


I've always wondered...can you use frozen spinach in a smoothie? I've always assumed that was not going to taste good but I'm not sure why; you can freeze fruits and veggies and they taste the same as fresh. So today I used frozen spinach in this smoothie and it's all good :)

This is an awesome antioxidant smoothie: it's got greens, blueberries and some healthy fat. Check out these awesome ingredients:

1 frozen banana
1 cup of frozen spinach
1 pear
1 cup of frozen blueberries
1 generous helping of natural peanut butter (or any nut butter)
2 cups of filtered water

Blend everything on high and for about a minute. Make sure you're buying everything organic, especially all the fruit and veggies in this smoothie. I'm drinking this while I write this and then I plan on going for a quick run.

I plan on working on new recipes this weekend so keep an eye on the blog next week.
Happy friday!! What are you doing this weekend??

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
