Citrus Smash

Posted on May 22, 2013

The Citrus Smash is a fresh juice that my younger son created and photographed on his own.

Looking for a refreshing way to start your day? Look no further. My younger son presents you with his Citrus Smash (which he both created and named). He loves using our juicer before going to school and after dinner to make delicious fresh fruit juices from scratch.

This fresh squeezed orange juice, spiked with grapefruit and lemon, is packed with vitamin C and bioflavonoids. He ... read more →

Mint Chip Protein Shake

Posted on August 21, 2012

Mint Chip Protein Shake, full of hemp seeds and kale to power you through the day.

I love a good protein shake. I don’t love eating a lot of protein sans vegetables or fruit. This shake solves that issue with a healthy handful of kale. Yes, you heard me, kale.

I’ve had this gluten free, dairy free protein shake for breakfast the last three days in a row. I used kale that I picked from my garden. Starting the day off with ... read more →

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Posted on December 2, 2011

Homemade and dairy free Peppermint Hot Chocolate to keep you warm and cozy on a cold winter’s night.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate is easy to make, and far better than the instant hot chocolate that comes in a package, which is loaded with sugar and definitely not dairy free. Additionally, I find this soothing and healthy beverage to be a great substitute for all of the peppermint candy floating around this time of year.

I make this dairy free hot chocolate with coconut ... read more →

Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Posted on August 4, 2011

This dairy free peanut butter protein shake is a great way to start the day.  I like to drink it before I go to the gym –the protein (about 50 grams) gives me energy during my entire workout, and then some.

I’ve been on a major peanut butter kick lately, in fact, this is my third gluten free peanut butter recipe in the last week or so.  Earlier, I posted my Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies, after that I posted ... read more →

Iced Ginger Chai

Posted on July 7, 2011

I love a good cool, yet spicy drink in the summer.  This Iced Ginger Chai recipe is based on one of my favorite products, Bhakti Chai.  It’s heavy on the ginger, cardamom and black pepper which I love.

While I love Bhakti Chai, it does not like me; there is way too much caffeine in this drink for my body type (vata). Even the decaffeinated product contains small amounts of caffeine, so in my version, I use roiboos tea as ... read more →

Ginger Lime Mocktail

Posted on May 31, 2011

Spicy ginger and tart lime team up to make a mean mocktail.

I don’t drink alcohol, however, I absolutely love fun, girly drinks in fancy glasses.  Hence, this deliciously refreshing, non-alcoholic beverage that I am calling a Ginger Lime Mocktail.  I think you could also call this sparkling zesty drink liquid superfood.  The ginger is full of anti-oxidants, good for digestion and is also anti-viral and anti-fungal.  The lime juice is packed with Vitamin C and bioflavanoids.

Today was our first beautiful ... read more →

Kale Creamsicle

Posted on October 6, 2010

This dark green, luscious shake is my go to drink when I need a little protein pick me up.

To me, the flavor of the kale is not that pronounced, what comes through is the creamy richness of the protein powder with the tart sweetness of the orange, thereby forming a yummy gluten-free, dairy-free creamsicle experience in a glass.  Enjoy!
