To Vegan Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie

Tofu in a smoothie?!?!?! That sounds very sketch. I’m pretty sure that was my response and thought up until I sipped on this.

After a week in Memphis with not the best and most healthy eating going on I felt like a semi-detox was needed, but with the weather still nice out and with a love for smoothies I wanted to mix it up and try something different, but healthy as an afternoon snack.Solution – tofu in my smoothie

This was super delish – nice and cool with a frothy and smooth texture – so delish I will probably have another today! Smoothies are appropriate each and every day…right?

Ingredients:

1/2 cup strawberries, fresh

1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks

1/2 cup almond milk

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup pom juice

3-4 tbsp. silken tofu

Directions:

Throw all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth. If you prefer a thicker smoothie just cut down a bit on the liquid.

Cheers to drinking your tofu too!

Fresh Strawberry Green Monster

This green monster is delicious – in fact I am surprised it isn’t blowing up across the world wide web (well maybe it did and I missed it). Nonetheless you have to try this flavor combination – it will have you squealing with excitement.

Make sure to add plenty of spinach – if you don’t want to be turned off by a brown color. While green and red work great together at Christmas, there is a reason they are not mixed, let alone next to each other on the color wheel and that’s because when they do mix together they form a murky brown color that is hinted more green than red – contingent on the amount of spinach you add (so add a lot because then you are just left with little flecks of red). This drink may not look like Christmas, but it sure is a nice present for your taste buds.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups strawberries (I used fresh, but frozen would work too, I would leave out the ice if using frozen though)

1/2 cup almond milk

1/2 cup water

1 tbsp. honey

1 tbsp. chia seeds

1 tbsp. ground flax

1 banana

4 ice cubes

2-3 cups of spinach

Directions:

Blend all your ingredients together and drink up!

Cheers to a power boosted morning

To Triple Berry Banana Vegan Overnight Oats

More overnight oats. They were just so good for breakfast yesterday that I knew they would be a great way to fuel up before piyo and my run this morning. This combination was delicious – but then again what with berries isn’t delicious? Rhetorical question I assume everyone says yes…

Continuation of last night with needing to use up my berries I figured I could use the the first recipe for overnight oats that I tried as a base for this one (I decreased the amount of milk though because I wanted to see if the texture would get thicker this way and it did – a texture I like even more) (:

You can make yours one berry, two berry, red berry, blueberry….Dr. Seuss – anybody?

But really, mix-in whatever berries you have on hand and it will be delicious!

Ingredients:

1/3 Cup Oats (old-fashion)

3/4 Cup Soy Milk

1 Banana (sliced)

2 Tbsp. Chia Seeds

1/4 Tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup berries (I used 1/3 cup mixture of blueberries and blackberries and then added three sliced strawberries)

morning mix-ins: honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, agave nectar, pecans, walnuts, other nuts –> top to your liking! (I used maple syrup and cinnamon)

 

Directions:

Mix dry ingredients with whisk. Add in milk and vanilla, mix well – stir in fruit.

Put in fridge overnight (covered or uncovered)

Cheers to a Happy Healthy Saturday
