Juicy Pineapple-Cucumber Smoothie

Juicy pineapple smoothie recipe

A cleansing fruit and veggie duo — pineapple and cucumber — combine in a light, ultra-refreshing cross between a smoothie and a juice. This goes down easy, so I’ve devised this recipe to yield about a quart. Share it, or sip it down slowly when you need a day to have more liquid and less food. more→

Cookie Dough Smoothie

cookie dough smoothie by Julie Morris from Superfood SmoothiesEven though there’s no real cookie dough in this smoothie, it sure tastes like it! Caramel-like dates, rich and nutty pecans, and cacoa nibs with their hint of chocolate blend perfectly with lucuma powder — which has a natural “cookie-like” flavor — making this smoothie all kinds of fabulous. Reprinted with permission from Superfood Smoothies * © 2013 by Julie Morris, Sterling Publishing Co.

Mint Chip Smoothie

mintchipsmoothieTucked beneath a very convincing ice cream-like flavor, a wealth of beneficial spinach awaits you in this smoothie. It’s so good it almost makes a person wonder why spinach isn’t used in all minty treats. I love how the cacao nibs provide a bit of dark-chocolate crunch without being overpowering. Reprinted with permission from Superfood Smoothies© 2013 by Julie Morris, Sterling Publishing Co., Inc.

Acai (With Beet) Smoothie

acai beet smoothie by julie morris from superfood smoothiesThe benefits of beets are huge: They help to purify the blood, enhance circulation, and support the kidneys . . . and that’s just the beginning. Unfortunately, not everyone likes beets. This recipe leans on the inherent sweetness and creaminess of roasted beets, but is balanced with citrus and acai flavors. A delicious and unique healthy treat. Reprinted with permission from Superfood Smoothies© 2013 by Julie Morris, Sterling Publishing Co., Inc. Photography by Julie Morris. more→

Banana-Pineapple Smoothie

Banana-pineapple smoothie

With the dearth of fruits in winter, bananas and pineapple are a good standby. Both fruits are rich in  vitamins and minerals, and their flavors are quite companionable. The optional coconut yogurt makes a thicker, richer-tasting smoothie. more→

Blueberry-Coconut Breakfast Shake

Blueberry Smoothie

This breakfast shake is so thick and delicious that it reminds me of the malteds I use to get when I was a kid. And between the blueberries, coconut milk, hemp seeds, and almond butter, it’s a real nutritional powerhouse. You might find, as I do, that a couple of glasses will keep you going for most of the day.

Carrot Cake Smoothie

Carrot cake smoothieI know that pineapple isn’t a component of all carrot cake recipes, but the carrot cakes I liked the most were always those that included it.  Similarly, you can omit the coconut if you’re not a fan.  The walnuts add Omega-3s add more protein. Recipe and photo contributed by Ricki Heller, from Diet, Dessert and Dogs. more→
