Orange Sunrise Smoothie

As gross as it may sound, I love a carrot smoothie.  The sweet earthy flavor of the carrot and the ginger's spice adds depth to the tropical fruits' sweetness. I understand that many families cannot tolerate so many sugary fruits, so we have also added frozen cauliflower, frozen butternut squash, and/or yellow squash with little flavor change.  This, of course, depends on the ratios used.  We have also omitted the orange juice and just used fresh oranges instead.  Feel free to play with this recipe. Ingredients 1 c.            Pineapple (frozen) 1 c.  [...]

Pink Yogi Smoothie

Shortly after we moved, I discovered the Pink Yogi Smoothie, at a local juice bar.  It was so good that I immediately went home and tried to recreate this treat. A very sweet and creamy smoothie that tastes a lot like a milkshake- with less guilt and gastrointestinal distress.  While I haven’t made one of these for my son, it is very satisfying and I will occasionally use it as a meal replacement for those days I’m on the run.

Basil & Berry Smoothie

This simple smoothie works for a quick an easy breakfast, afternoon snack, or even a popsicle.   I will say that it is not very sweet, so if you’re just incorporating smoothies and are looking for a sweeter option, you may want to add a little unfiltered clean apple juice to make it a little more palatable.  I wouldn’t go overboard with the juice as it is a free sugar and can also contribute to yeast, imbalances, etc. This recipe can easily be modified to be used as a base for a smoothie bowl.  If doing so, [...]

Beginner Green Smoothie

Early on, the thought of a green smoothie was about as exciting as a trip to the dentist. However, we quickly realized they weren't as bad as we had expected. We grew to love them. Whenever we have overnight guests, I nearly always make them a green smoothie, shock them with the green, and prove how good they are. The sweetness of the fruit does a great job of masking the bitterness of the greens. Green smoothies have been getting a bit of a bad reputation recently due to oxalate load, but it is essential to [...]
