Todays daily dose of pumpkin! This recipe is very simple and oh-so Fall! Sweet, thick and chock full of beta carotene, potassium and glucose to get your body moving.
We love taking part in Marlie Centawer's Smoothie Sundays! This particular creation can be made high raw with cooked pureed pumpkin OR do like we do and keep the pumpkin puree raw by simply blending up the flesh of sweet pie pumpkin in your blender until smooth. Hemp mylk makes a great base for this smoothie with its thick creamy texture, earthy flavor, and high nutrient content. Fresh banana and a few soaked dates help to thicken and sweeten things up and the spices add that spicy pumpkin pie flavor we all love this time of year.
While being incredibly simple, 100% fruity, and low in fat this recipe also manages to be incredibly rich, thick and satisfying; Exactly how we like our nog! No dairy, eggs, or sugar went into the creation of this lovely persimmon nog! Enjoy a glass while snuggled up to the fireplace with family and friends. We recommend using super ripe, water-balloon soft Hachiya persimmons or a combination of Hachiya and Fuyu.

To me, this Autumn Elixir Smoothie combines so many wondrous elements of fall; the warming notes of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, with the creamy combines of banana, freshly made almond mylk, and cooling fruits like pear.
You may be thinking, "broccoli and banana?!" Yes we know its an unlikely pair, however, this smoothie works out very nicely. The sweet creaminess of frozen bananas helps to smooth over any overly green flavor of broccoli. The spinach and spirulina are hardly even detectable, however they do contribute to the creaminess of texture. Maca and lucuma add a subtle maltiness that is quite delicious. The result is a thick, creamy smoothie packed to the brim with green nutrition! Top with bee pollen for an immune system boost as well as extra protein and B vitamins.
A smoothie full of good omega fats for everyone and specially designed with baby bellies and nursing mammas in mind. This smoothie makes a great breakfast or afternoon snack. And look at the frozen heart-shaped strawberry! How perfect for this for the Omega Baby Smoothie. It tastes a lot like a strawberry milkshake with a hint of kiwi, such great flavor and super good for you too! Some studies suggest you should avoid hemp oil during pregnancy and others suggest it’s a great addition, so use your intuition and consult with a nutritionist before using it as your omega source during pregnancy OR just switch to Chia Oil instead :)
Enjoy this smoothie as a delicious and super healthy alternative to chocolate which contains caffeine and can be over stimulating for the adrenals. If you’re allergic to peanuts – just leave the butter out for a carob-banana smoothie.
Marlie Centawer declares this recipe "simply and sinfully sumptuous" and we agree! The rich and deep flavors of cacao and coconut blend with creamy frozen bananas for an especially indulgent treat perfect for a filling and sustaining breakfast or for a post yoga class energizer. The flavors of this recipe mimic the rich robustness of espresso, and the topping of cacao nibs will remind you of crushed coffee beans. Delish!
I have finally signed up for a weekly CSA box and have been getting insanely delicious organic pears. Really, I never ate pears before because there was always such a high likelihood of them being all mealy and not that great. This organic, local food box has changed my life when it comes to fruit, and especially my opinion on pears! Bosc, bartlett, the other random type they've sent me...wow! Insanely juicy and sweet, and with an amazing texture! Looking for more ways to enjoy them, I started to experiment with making a juice. Well, really more of a blended fruit drink as fiber is one of my fave characteristics of fruit and I'm not about to give that away to a juicer! I also love that you can blend up the skin of the fruit, adding even more of a nutritional punch to this delicious and refreshing drink.
The maca helps to temper and balance out your adrenals, the bananas are an excellent source of quickly digestible carbohydrates (40-60 minutes), the lucuma powder gives the shake a nice caramel flavor, and the almond milk makes it super creamy and smooth. Plus, the cinnamon aids in digestion and gives it a nice little send off. What could be better?
Surprisingly, Basil adds an amazing flavour to this smoothie! Cherries are powerful anti-inflammatory fruits. Wild-blueberries have anti-oxidant properties that can keep you looking and feeling young. If you can get raw, unpasteurized coconut water (either in a coconut or from Exotic Superfoods or Harmless Harvest) it’s a great carrier liquid to use in smoothies. Coconut water acts as a carrier by delivering nutrients straight into the blood stream. It was used in WW2 for blood transfusions on the battle field and is the most similar liquid to our blood plasma on the planet. This smoothie just so happens to be a natural anti-inflammatory, and a great choice for someone with arthritis or pain.
I kept this recipe extremely basic for it to be as easy as possible on my stomach. If you want to go all green wild vixen and add all kinds of veggies, other fruits, superfoods and fun stuff, go ahead and do it! I´ll give it a few more days then add some raw cacao!
The taste of tropical paradise! A delicious, thick smoothie full of fiber, vitamin C, Vitamin A, minerals, enzymes, and the anti-inflammatory power of ginger root. While a Hawaiian vacation may not be possible in this exact moment, this smoothie may very well become the next best thing. Feel free to add a little coconut water for a thinner consistency.
Christina says that this is "a recipe for the wild souls who live creatively, curiously and sweetly!" This is a beautiful milkshake: sweet, creamy, and nourishing in every way. Anise is a naturally sweet spice with a similar taste to licorice. It is uplifting to the senses and also helps improve digestion.
Laura Dawn says, "Boost your energy levels, help clear up your skin and alkalize your body…these are just some of the health benefits of eating mangoes!" This recipe also includes plenty of hemp seeds for their creamy texture and wonderful abundance of complete protein and omega 3 fatty acids. Let your tastes be the judge of the exact amounts of ingredients to add to this recipe. If your mangos are especially ripe and juicy you may need less liquid or vise versa. The addition of chai spice gives this recipe an authentic Indian flare!
Sprouted foods will add a plethora of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytonutrients into your recipes! This smoothie by Tess Masters combines fresh (or frozen) strawberries with coconut water, lemon, dates and the green power of romaine as well as Sprout Living's freeze dried broccoli and kale sprout mix. This mix provides an abundance of minerals like vitamin K and calcium, as well as antioxidants and chlorophyll. This recipe is an easy way to get sprouts into your body, and you'll hardly even know they're in there!
Kristina says, "Start your day hydrating your body and mind with this blissful blessing! Oranges are a popular favorite, and basil is known as a holy herb that can instill healing and bliss! Enjoy this amazing smoothie!" Orange and basil may not seem like the most likely of paring, but we assure you the outcome is a deliciously refreshing blast of fresh flavor! Give these ingredients a whirl and enjoy an alkalinizing green smoothie rich in vibrant vitamins and minerals.
Pineapple, banana, raspberries, mache and vanilla combine together to form a magnificent display of colorful nutrition bursting with life force. If you're not familiar with mache it is a green leafy veggie very similar in taste to spinach. Feel free to substitute any mild flavored green of your choosing. Even the kids will enjoy this recipe!
A total meal in a glass with alkalinizing kale, plenty of ripe banana and pineapple for smooth creamy sweetness, coconut water for extra hydration and minerals, and Epic Protein Powder for strength building, immune enhancing and easy to assimilate amino acids. You won't need anything else for a healthy nourishing breakfast or snack!
Hydrating and nourishing your body has never tasted so sweet! These 2 smoothies are so quick to throw together and will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized. Kristina recommends sticking a little umbrella in your glass, grabbing your favorite book, and soaking up all this yummy goodness while in the sunshine.
