Strawberry Smoothie

I haven’t made a smoothie in ages and now I’m addicted to this one. This strawberry smoothie is one of the simplest smoothies that I’ve ever made. I think for a while there I wanted to add every healthy ingredient I had into one glass. Honestly I think the fewer the ingredients the better because I’m more likely to make it and it’s still delicious. So strawberry and yogurt it is. There is some banana going on too, but I don’t taste it. The frozen banana makes the smoothie thick. Plus it makes it more filling, which is obviously a …

Berry Kiwi Smoothie

Happy New Year! I’m back to my normal eating habits, which means that my holiday cookie diet is over.  It’s a shame because a cookie diet is the only diet that I seem to be able to stick with.   😉  I could never give up sweets because I love them so much, so I’m all about moderation.  I try to eat healthy during the week and splurge a little on the weekends. Smoothies are one of my go-to healthy meals.  I’ve shared a variety of them with you on my blog and now I’m adding this new pretty one to the list.  …

3 Ingredient Banana Smoothie

It’s time to kick it up a notch. Spring has sprung officially, but thankfully it’s not warm enough in CT to wear shorts yet.  Am I the only one who gets anxiety wearing shorts for the first time of the season?  Anyone?  Just me?  Maybe you can’t go by me since I don’t like wearing shorts.  Anyway, the reality is I need to kick those winter pounds so I’ve stepped up my workout game.  I’m sore (a lot) and I’m excited that I’m trying something new.  Workout.  Check.  Food… well, that’s a work in progress.  I love food so it’s …

Berry Kiss Smoothie

Who else is stuffed from Memorial Day weekend (aka the all you can eat unofficial start of summer BBQ food bonanza weekend)? If you are like me then you’re looking to have lighter meals to try to help compensate for the damage done from the weekend.  I instantly think of smoothies as a sure fire way to a light and healthy meal.  Of course not all smoothies are healthy but this one is.  This one is dairy free (if that’s the sort of thing that you’re into or just looking to try something different).  Plus this one has got some “stick with ya” powers, …

Coconut Almond Smoothie

Hello Monday and hello new smoothie recipe. By show of virtual hands, are you a smoothie person?  I could drink a smoothie every day and be a happy camper.  (I could also eat a bagel every day and be in heaven, but I digress.)  My husband is not a fan of smoothies.  No biggie.  Thankfully it’s super easy to whip up a smoothie for one. I tend to make the same smoothie flavor for a few weeks and then I move on to another one which becomes my new favorite.  Lately I’ve been into dairy free smoothies so I came …
