a glass of garden greens

Monday, February 23, 2015

One of my top tips for beating winter fatigue? Drink your greens, of course! This Garden Greens Juice is one of my favourites, since it tastes so fresh and lively and is filled with an abundance of detoxifying, good-for-you fruits and veggies.

It's one of the recipes I created for my "Smoothie of the Month" column in Canadian Gardening (where I'm the associate editor). It's been a joy to invent creative and appetizing ways to turn the things you can grow in your vegetable garden into delicious and healthful smoothies and juices. I'll be sharing some of my favourite ones here over the next few weeks or so. I hope you like them!

a glass of kale and almond

Saturday, February 21, 2015

So simple and so good – this smoothie has easily become one of my go-to breakfasts. The coconut oil has been a fantastic addition to my drink recipes, since it's great for fat metabolism and skin health.

A Glass of Kale & Almond
Serves 2

1 cup chopped kale
1 apple, chopped
1 cup almond milk
2 tbsps almond butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup cold filtered water
2 - 4 ice cubes, depending on desired slushiness

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth.

P.S. The health benefits of kale HERE.

Have you ever had an acai bowl? It's satisfying, energizing and so delicious. Acai berry is a Brazilian superfood that's crazy rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids; it also boasts essential vitamins (such as B and K) and minerals (potassium, zinc and iron).

I'm not talking about Snack Pack here. This is so much more than that: Rich and decadent; sweet and creamy; vegan and refined sugar-free. Does it get any better?

a glass of raspberry + raw chocolate

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Although Valentine's Day and sweet treats seem to go hand in hand, sugary confections will often leave you feeling bloated and moody (and definitely not sexy). On the other hand, my latest smoothie recipe boasts the best ingredients for the romance-filled day: sweet-tart raspberries and libido-boosting raw cacao (chocolate in its purest form) and maca root powder.
