I love avocados, and ESPECIALLY in smoothies. This particular smoothie is rich with antioxidants, fiber, vitamin A, folate, and Omega 3 fatty acids. You can add a bit of sweetener if you’d like, but I enjoy mine as is. My three year old loves this “monster green smoothie”, but doesn’t like the texture of the Chia seeds. If I’m making one smoothie for him, I’ll just add the chia at
1 cup vanilla almond milk 1 cup frozen dark sweet cherries 1 cup frozen mango chunks 2 tsp milled flaxseed (optional) Add your cherries and mango to a food processor or blender, and blend until smooth. Pour in your almond milk and flax, and blend until well combined. Pour into your favorite glass, and serve with a straw and a few cherries for garnish.

Today we’re revisiting an old favorite: the dairy free iced mocha. I’m always looking for a pick-me-up in the afternoon, and I’m a total sucker for lattes, frappuccinos, and anything else that’s icy and coffee filled. This dairy free iced mocha whips up quickly, and is fantastic when topped with some frothy steamed coconut milk and a drizzle of dairy free chocolate syrup. It’s the perfec
Happy Friday, mamas! Hopefully the weather where you are is as beautiful as it is here in New England today (minus those pesky May flies). With the warm weather approaching us, I find myself craving all things cold; cold beer, cold sangrias, cold pasta and potato salads, and ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream (dairy free of course). My recent obsession for green smoothies has done an amazing job of satisfying my c
Spring is in the air, and this sangria is perfect for those warm days in the sun. Light, fruity, and refreshing, it’s the perfect cocktail to accompany some relaxing “mommy time”. For a lighter version you can eliminate the Grand Marnier, but it does add a nice touch to the drink. Don’t have any fresh fruit? Keep some frozen smoothie fruit on hand. Not only does the fruit help to keep the drin
I’m obsessed with kale and smoothies these days. I just can’t seem to get enough, which isn’t such a bad thing considering the health benefits! The other day I was happily sipping my kale smoothie and thought “How can I make this even healthier?”. So I tinkered around with it a bit, and mixed up this fantastic tasting, healthy concoction. It’s not much different than my original ka
I’m obsessed with green smoothies lately, but am often turned off by their grassy, “green” flavor. I whipped up this little concoction this morning for breakfast, and boy was I pleasantly surprised! The fruit does a great job of cutting through the bitterness of the kale, and in fact you can barely taste the kale at all. Frosty, sweet, and yummy! 2 cups rinsed, chopped kale, tough stalks removed 1 f
It’s finally warm and sunny in New England, and that makes me crave my long lost friend since going dairy free: the iced mocha. Being dairy and soy free makes a trip to my local Starbucks painful, but this ice mocha recipe is quick and about three dollars cheaper! 2 cups of ice 2 tablespoons cocoa or dairy free chocolate syrup 2 tablespoons sugar or agave syrup 1 1/2 cups of almond milk about two cups of HOT co
Who doesn’t love a little hot cocoa to warm them up when it’s cold and snowing outside? If you’re going milk free, Swiss Miss can be a thing of the past for you. But with three little ingredients you can whip some milk free hot cocoa up yourself in a jiffy. 1 1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar 1 cup almond, soy, or rice milk Heat milk in saucepan until warm. Mix cocoa and sugar
