Basil Honeydew Green Smoothie

Basil Honeydew Green Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #green #smoothie #recipe

This is one of those five minute breakfasts that you can make quickly as you are running out the door and take with you so you get some good nutrition in your body, but it will leave you with a sweet tasting memory throughout your day. I made this as I was rushing off to […]


Banana Berry Passion Yogurt Smoothie & an Ice Storm

Banana Berry Passion Yogurt Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoothie #recipe

Blogging when you have a full-time job is done sometimes in bits and pieces. This smoothie was my speedy breakfast before yoga Saturday morning. On Saturday it was a nice spring day and I spent the entire day running around in my tank top with no jacket. On Saturday there was no time to blog. […]


Blueberry Gooseberry Yogurt Smoothie

Blueberry Gooseberry Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoothie #recipe

I have three big bags of frozen gooseberries in my freezer, from my friend who has a very lively and productive gooseberry bush. I was so pleased to have them because I ADORE gooseberries, but they are such a rich-tasting fruit, I’ve been a little puzzled about what to do with all these lovely green […]


Kumquat Creamsicle Smoothie

Kumquat Creamsicle Smoothie

I’m still making my way through my kumquats from the large box my aunt sent me … some of them are starting to go bad so I need to finish up the kumquats. I pureed a bunch of them to use in recipes last weekend, so I decided to try a little bit of that […]

Pumpkin Maple Cranberry Protein Smoothie

Pumpkin Maple Cranberry Protein Smoothie

I’m really getting into smoothies lately. I think it’s Linda’s fault. She has this Smoothie Tuesday party on her facebook page Project Healthy Ever After every Tuesday and I want to have something good to bring! Once upon a time I was a bartender at a Mexican restaurant, so we made lots of margaritas and […]


Tropical Kiwi Monster Protein Kale Smoothie

Tropical Kiwi Monster Protein Kale Smoothie

This morning I woke up at about 8 am and thought to myself “I am going to go to yoga at 9”. This doesn’t leave me much time, of course, to do my do my normal morning rituals … I did fit in a few minutes to check facebook and a cup of chai, but […]


Cantaloupe Lassi with Vanilla

Cantaloupe Lassi with Vanilla

My dad loves cantaloupe. He loves it so much that one time he even built a “cantaloupe accelerator” so that his cantaloupe plants would start producing fruit earlier in the season. He doesn’t do the “accelerator” anymore, but he still grows cantaloupe every year, and he has perfected the art of growing them to the […]


Watermelon Basil Chia Smoothie

Basil Watermelon Chia Slushie

It’s time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge and this month we are all making smoothies. The assignment is to find another blogger’s smoothie recipe, make it, and blog about it. I chose this watermelon smoothie (slushie?) from the Full Belly Sisters because as some of you who follow me on facebook know, I recently bought a […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Chia Smoothie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie ... Health-ified

(a.k.a. “Healthy Muck”) So far, I have a total of one smoothie on this blog. One. I guess if you count this one, that’s two, but it’s really the same smoothie (this one is a health-ified version of the other one), so does that count? I think it’s still just one. I do really love […]


Magnificent “Muck”

"Muck" = chocolate, peanut butter, and banana smoothie

My dad invented this wonderful creation. It’s a smoothie. A smoothie with all the things I crave all together in one. Chocolate, peanut butter, banana all blended together in a cold, creamy sensation. We have for years called it a “Grampa Smoothie” since Grampa created it. But then one of my son’s friends tried it […]
