My new favorite refreshment… ch-ch-ch-chia and citrus. I’ll just be blunt and say that this drink is probably not for everyone. The texture of the chia is weird for some, so be warned. It was a little weird at first, but I got past it quickly… especially after looking into some of the reported benefits of chia. We already know that lemon and water is a killer health combo, but the chia is the real boost here.
Moving right along with my Star Wars Smoothie Series! Obvious name for obvious reasons – C-3PO makes me so so so happy! Sara Day isn’t a Star Wars fan, but calls him the “gold guy,” LOL. Whatever, gold is pretty much unattainable when it comes to smoothie making, so I am settling on this yellow.
Okay, I know it’s the Star Wars Smoothie Series, but this juice screamed Skywalker. Who I love. Just look at him go – fighting evil and shit.
Oh, and it’s bright green because it will brighten up those senses and that complexion, baby. Not to mention your morning ;)
In college, we had this place called “Bubble Tea Time” on campus. The first time I had bubble tea (aka boba), I was kind of weirded out. What the hell were these things at the bottom of my drink? One after the other… chew chew chew.
Boba balls are tapioca pearls, derived from the starch of the cassava root. Once they are cooked, they have a chewy consistency. Sounds so weird, right? Yeah… but Lord, are they addictive. Every once in a while, I would treat myself to a boba smoothie on campus until the place went out of business. GAH. So I took matters into my own hands and ordered some boba for myself (along with boba-esque straws). It is surprisingly suuuuper easy to make, and it’s an awesome treat every once in a while.
Oh, and hello – Boba Fett for my Star Wars Smoothie Series.
I bought these mini pineapples for the cost of… basically an arm and leg. Ha – but seriously, so expensive! They cost more than a regular pineapple. But I obviously had to have it…
And then I opened it and had barely any pineapple meat, so I scooped it all out and made a quick smoothie out of it.
This gorgeous smoothie has a secret ingredient in it. Can you guess what it is before looking? I bet you can’t.
Juice vibes, all the time. What a flavor combo! I mean, there are some other pieces to this puzzle, but sweet potato and strawberries steal the show. Super refreshing on this gorgeous May day :)
Another simple post, because it’s Mother’s Day and hello – busy day ahead. Spending time with loved ones – especially my amazing Mama. She was my original vegan inspiration – vegan for almost 7 years now. She’ll always inspire me, in more ways than she knows. Love you, Mom!
Okay, simple recipe time :)
Is there really anything better than drinking juice that is THIS bold and beautiful? Call me a girly girl, but pink juice makes me all sorts of happy first thing in the morning. I actually never had prickly pear up until a few months back, and you can imagine my face when I opened it up and it was BRIGHT FUCHSIA. Life. made.
