Berry Yogurt Smoothie

It’d been pretty hot (or maybe “stuffy” would be a better description; my apartment is like a steam room! I’m hoping this bodes well for winter; it’s all about the silver linings), so hello smoothies!

Berry Yogurt Smoothie

-2 handfuls of frozen blueberries (my hands are kinda small)
-6 frozen strawberries
-2 spinach ice cubes
-vanilla soy milk
-2.5 tbsp Fage 0% Greek yogurt
-1 tsp chia seeds
-1 tsp hemp seeds

1) Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth!


Strawberry “Green” Lemonade Smoothie

I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this one. It tasted a little too clean to me. I guess I’m a lot more used to blending my green smoothies with a banana and was half-expecting it to be a little more smoothie-like, but it wasn’t bad or anything. Just…green. haha. I used jasmine green tea because at the time, that’s all I had. :O I have since been gifted with some really awesome straight-up green tea that I will be putting to good use, especially when colder weather comes around.

Strawberry “Green” Lemonade Smoothie

-1/4 cup lemon juice
-1/2 cup water or green tea
-1 1/5 cup frozen strawberries
-1 cup spinach

1) Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth!

Green Smoothie

I imagine it’s called this for a reason. In my spare time, as you may well have noticed, I like looking at food recipes and wishing I were rich (because if that were the case, I could eat the world). Unfortunately, you can’t have it all in life. :[ So! I came across this recipe and really liked it because it’s so effing simple and adaptable. :D I’m almost certain that this came from ohsheglows.

I guess to some, it may look…”different” (or unappetizing, depending on whether or not you want to euphemize it.) When I first made it, Nadia retreated upstairs because she didn’t want to look at it. But! If you like the color green and aren’t a huge fan of raw spinach, this is the way to go. :O (I like spinach either way, but in this thing, you can’t taste the spinach at all.) I’m pretty sure it’s the banana that’s masking it all.

Basic Green Monster

Please ignore the drink recipe on the actual cup since it’s irrelevant, although I doubt you can read it. :O The cup was from Mekala! :D

-2 cups spinach
-1 cup soy milk
-1 banana
-1 tbsp flax seed

1) Add to blender in this order: flax, spinach, banana, milk.
2) Blend everything on highest setting for about a minute.

So, to be fair, I didn’t have flax here, so I went without. The milk can be any kind of milk (rice, almond, soy, regular, 1%, 2%…), but I’m a fan of soy milk since I may be mildly lactose intolerant (thanks a lot, Asian ancestry). You can also add ice (or a frozen banana!), but I’m used to not having that since our ice machine at home has never worked. You can also add all kinds of other fruits. Up to your personal preference! :O
