tropical strawberry smoothie

My husband loves a particular tropical strawberry smoothie at a smoothie chain when we are on the road. I wanted to make something similar but with far less sugar; this recipe worked.

You must resist the desire to add rum to this healthy Pineapple Kiwi Smoothie. Think kale instead! Pineapple is knows for the natural enzyme bromelain, found in it’s core.

favorite strawberry recipes

all in one post.  Let’s be honest.  Nothing is better than local, freshly picked strawberries.  Not the organic strawberries from California or the first strawberries that start to appear in the grocery stores in April.  Nothing is sweeter or more flavorful than sun warmed, freshly picked strawberries…. I’m only saying this because it’s not peach […]

pumpkin pie smoothie

Seriously, this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie is good.  I love sweets and the flavor of pumpkin pie but not so much the actual pie.  I don’t like eggs and the thought of the wet/moist texture coming from the eggs grosses me out.  This is like enjoying the pie but so much better for you and far […]
