Dragon Fruit Zinger Smoothie

Most people associate smoothies with summer. To that I say – Not in a vegan’s life (or lazy person!), they’re a year-round thing. Smoothies are a great way to get some nutrition in without a lot of effort. Not to mention at this time of  year –  we can use all of the nutrition we can…

Orange Macaroon – A Vega One Smoothie

Depending on where I am in the month, sometimes my sweet tooth gets a little demanding. Often time, the sweets I am craving have little to no nutritional benefit and leave me feeling unsatisfied. Dried fruit is a good work around sometimes, but good organic dried fruit can sometimes be a bit costly, and can…

Peaches & Greens – A Vega One Smoothie

This past Tuesday, I posted a review of the Vega One Nutritional Shakes. I mentioned that they are versatile, and make a great base for a smoothie. This recipe is proof of those statements! (You didn’t think I would say that without sharing a recipe, did you?)  Green, giant and ge-licious? 😀 Well, two out of…

Hydro-Melon – A smoothie that hydrates from the inside

Hey pals! 🙂 I know I keep mentioning how dry fall is… but I can’t help but write about my own experiences. I am trying to move away from using lotion (using oil instead!) – and am finding that if I don’t get enough water in a day, I wake up feeling a bit dry….

Green Sour Slap Smoothie – Detox and De-bloat

I don’t know about you – but I get bloated from time to time. For me, there are a number of culprits – maybe it’s what I ate, maybe I ate too much, my digestion slows down, or maybe it’s coming up on my “time of the month”. Luckily, there are a lot of different…

Straw-Peary Kiwi – A thick and juicy smoothie

Strawberry kiwi – a combination that almost everyone can agree is delicious. This smoothie vibes off that agreeance and adds a touch of pear-licious texture (and fiber – *wink*) to the mix, that almost makes the consistency shake-like. This recipe makes about 500 mL worth – or approx 2 cups. Straw-Peary Kiwi  Ingredients 7 strawberries 1…

Grey-t Golly miss Molly! – A Vega One Smoothie!

De-bloat the nutritious way!

It’s no secret, nor am I embarrassed to admit that I get bloated somewhat frequently. Although going vegan and changing a lot of habits in my life has helped, the effects of my habits earlier on in life will stay with me forever. That all being said, I am confident I am not alone in…
