Hey ya'll! Do you guys like smoothies? I LOVE them! They are the easiest breakfast to make. Just put a few ingredients in a blender, and ta-da! These smoothies are refined-sugar free (naturally sweetened with fruit), dairy-free, gluten-free, and most importantly, delicious! I didn't have any store bought "milk", but I did have coconut flakes and almonds, and made a super tasty non-dairy milk in just a few seconds! At the very end of both recipes there is a note on how to make your own "milk".
Let's get right into the recipes :)
1 c of blueberries
1 c of dairy-free milk
(I used coconut/almond milk)*
1 fuji apple (or any other apple, fuji apples are the sweetest!)
Blend all ingredients until well combined. To give it a marble look, take one tablespoon or two of milk or the other colored smoothie and pour it on the sides of your glass container and move it around with a spoon.
1 cup of strawberries
1 cup of almond/coconut milk*
1 fuji apple (or any other apple)
a little piece of beet (you won't taste it, I promise ;)
Blend all ingredients until well combined. To give it a marble look, take one tablespoon or two of milk and pour it on the sides of your glass container and move around with a spoon.
*to make your own "milk" add 1/2 c of coconut flakes, 1/2 c of almonds, and 2 tbs of hemp seeds in a blender with water and blend. You can strain the milk out with a cheesecloth, but I didn't want to waste any of it, so I put it all in the smoothie ;)
Now if you don't have any of these ingredients, no worries! Be creative and make your own delicious combinations. Choose different fruits with any dairy-free milk and that's it! If you want a thicker consistency, freeze your fruits or milk in ice trays and then blend them with a bit of water. If you want it sweeter, use some dates. The possibilities are endless! Explore and taste the delicious variety fruits and veggies provide for us :)
Hope you guys have an awesome week!
much love and peace!
