PB&J Green Smoothie

So delicious and nourishing you’ll crave it everyday.

Best Ever PB&J Green Smoothie for 1

1 cup unsweetened almond milk ( or coconut, oat, regular cow)

2 big handfuls of spinach

1/2 cup frozen cherry berry blend*

1 Tbs maca powder (Optional)

1 scoop plant based vanilla protein powder

1 scoop unflavored collagen peptides

1 Tbs peanut butter (I like one that is just peanuts, oil, and salt)

I blend everything in the vitamix until smooth while Buffy, my Saint Bernard, enjoys the leftover peanut butter from the spoon.

*The cherry berry blend I use contains strawberries, blueberries, tart cherries, and sweet cherries. Feel free to use your favorite blend. Think of the kind of jam/jelly you like and go with that or switch it up.

What’s your favorite flavor of jam/jelly for a PB&J?

Carrot Quinoa Salad with Spicy Chili Lime Vinaigrette

 

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone is having a beautiful week!

I have to say, as much as I love the warm sunny days we have been having, I welcome the occasional rainy day. You see, the rainy days are perfect for binge watching shows without feeling guilty about wasting a nice day. Lately, we have been re-watching Game Of Thrones in anticipation of the season 7 premiere July 16th. It is insane how much I missed the first time around!

Which shows do you love to re-watch?

Okay, now let’s move on to this gorgeous salad. I love a bright, hearty spring salad. I wanted something substantial and healthy, but needed to go to the store. I decided to make a clean out the fridge salad. First, I tossed some carrots with olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, and smoked paprika. Then, baked them in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Good Morning Ginger Berry Green Smoothie

This is not your typical green smoothie. It starts out similar to my other smoothies with greens, almond milk and fruit.

I have something to say that not everyone is going to like…. Ahem, back off of the pumpkin spice!

Okay, okay, please put down the torches and pitchforks. Let’s not get overly dramatic here.
