Kiwi Colada

It’s the middle of the week, who wouldn’t want a nice drink to relax with. This is a super refreshing drink that I made without alcohol but you could add some rum which is what the recipe actually calls for. Based on the name, you can tell that this is a play on a pina…

Banana Date Shake

So here we are at the final section of recipes in the book – drinks and desserts. This shake is a nice start here. This could be a dessert or even a morning beverage. I have had smoothies similar to this one before, it is just made with banana, nut butter, dates, cinnamon and non…

PB & Fruit Smoothie

I’ve been eating quite a lot of berries recently, specifically blueberries. They’re just so good – taste-wise and nutritionally – and they’ve been on sale recently so I like to always have them on hand. A few weeks ago, I posted the incredible Blueberry Cheesecake French Toast and today I’m back with another blueberry recipe!…

Summer Berry Smoothie

I LOVE summer drinks. When you’re sitting outside, it’s so nice to have a cold drink in hand. There are many directions you can go, and smoothies are definitely one of the healthier ones. Smoothies are perfect for any day and you can pack them with any combination of your favourite fruits (or even some…

Instant Oatmeal Smoothie

You know I love oatmeal. You can find a lot of oatmeal posts on my blog (a mix of my own recipes, as well as ones from online and cookbooks). Also, it doesn’t matter whether it’s hot or cold, I can’t get enough of it. One thing that is newer to me though, is adding…

Jade ‘N’ Juice Smoothie

With all the smoothies (and smoothie bowls) in the two cookbooks that I cooked my way through previously (Yum & Yummer and Love Real Food), I’ve tried a number of different ingredient/flavour combinations. I loved those so much and I will include the links below for some of my faves so that you can try…

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Smoothie

Let me just start by saying I was never a huge smoothie drinker. I don’t know why, but I never really made myself smoothies nor did I really ever have the desire to do so. However, since making the cinnamon-almond green smoothie from the Love Real Food cookbook (link here), I’ve been on a smoothie…

Recipe #58: Banana Pecan Shakes

Ever since making the cinnamon almond green smoothies (link here) a couple weeks ago, I’ve been a little smoothie crazy. I made more freezer packs so I have lots of those ready to go whenever I want one. And today, I’m posting about this banana pecan shake that I really enjoyed too. Technically this shake…

Recipe #53: Cinnamon-Almond Green Smoothie

This book finds ways to add lots of fruits and veggies to almost every recipe. That’s one of the many reasons why I’ve been loving this cookbook. Everything is just so fresh and healthy. So this smoothie is from the section of “make ahead green smoothies”. The idea is to measure out the ingredients in…

Recipe #88: Build Your Own Bowl (Smoothie Bowl)

Smoothie bowls are a combination of regular smoothies and yogurt parfaits. They’re a great way to incorporate lots of fruit and healthy toppings into your breakfast. My bowl had a base of strawberry and blueberry smoothie which had a really nice colour. I used sweetened vanilla yogurt so I did not add any honey or…
