Berry Beet Smoothie

Smoothies are delicious because they are so sweet. So what can be better than hiding some vegetables in that sweetness?

I drink many smoothies a week. In order to incorporate some more vegetables into my diet, my plan is to hide the vegetables into my fruit smoothies without tasting them. This Berry Beet Smoothie does a great job of that! Two carrots and one beet is hidden under the façade of apple and strawberries. With the added protein from the almond milk I added as well, this is definitely an all-around healthy smoothie that tastes great. (more…)

Mango Chili Smoothie

Seems like an unlikely pair, but let me tell you how super this Mango Chili Smoothie is! The ancho chili powder supplies the heat and the mango supplies the sweet in this unique smoothie!

The idea comes from the many Mexican students I have, bringing in snacks of mango slices dusted with chili powder. For years I have seen this snack in my classroom, and refused many offers to try it.  Just the other day though, I tried a slice.  IT WAS SO DELICIOUS!!!!!!! I couldn’t believe that I have not been tasting this goodness for so much time!  I had a mango that I needed to use up, and I was craving the snack, so I decided to make a Mango Chili Smoothie! You have to try it!  (more…)
