smoothies.

since late may we've been incorporating smoothies into our morning routine a few days out of the week. we don't have a blender but we did purchase a magic bullet from a while ago. it makes just enough for a cup of smoothie each for both yangkyu and me. i've been relying on this blog for recipes but have also tried a handful of others from around the web. below are some that we've tried! 

raspberry blackberry smoothie 
1 banana 
1/2 cup of blackberries 
1 cup of raspberries
splash of milk 
1 tbsp of honey 
4 ice cubes

tropical green smoothie 
1 tbsp honey {or desired sweetener}
1/2 cup of non-fat plain yogurt
1/4 cup of water {we used coconut water}
1/2 cup of chopped fresh pineapple 
1/2 cup of chopped mango 
1/2 cup of chopped spinach

avo-banana kale green smoothie
1 cup of fresh kale
1 cup of water 
2 bananas
1/4 avocado 

blue chia smoothie 
1/2 cup of plain non-fat yogurt
1/2 banana 
1/3 cup of fresh blackberries 
1/3 of fresh blueberries 
1/3 cup of spinach 
1/2 cup of orange juice 
1 tsp of chia seeds 

strawberry oatmeal smoothie 
1 cup of strawberries 
1 banana 
1/2 cup of oats 
1/2 cup of plain non-fat yogurt 
1/4 of water 
1 tsp of honey 

strawberry mango smoothie 
1 1/4 cup of apple juice 
1 cup of low-fat plain yogurt 
1 cup of fresh strawberries 
2 cups of chopped mango

  2. Smoothie is extra awesome in the summertime in my opinion. It is refreshing and an easy way to get your daily fruit/veggie intake. Yours look soooo pretty. The Magic Bullet seems to work great.

  3. That raspberry blackberry smoothie looks beautiful and sounds good. I'm typically a green smoothie girl when I enjoy smoothies and my favorite recipe is frozen mango and pineapple, two handfuls of spinach, and a cup of Greek yogurt - yum! I might verge a little out of my comfort zone though with some of your smoothie features

  4. Yum! Which one has been your favorite thus far? I like to freeze my veggies and fruits so that I don't have to add any ice and it's cold straight from the blender :) I also don't measure (just eyeballing it) so I can't give you an accurate recipe, but I my go-to is: a blend of kale, pineapples, bananas, coconut water, and chia seeds.

  5. I love strawberry and mango smoothies! I've also been really enjoying the combo of pineapple and blueberry. It seems sort of random, but it's actually super yummy. I usually add a Tbs of flax meal and/or chia seeds to my smoothies. Extra vitamins and it helps thicken them up!

  13. I found the smoothies being the best food for the mountains hiking and since than they become something I m not hiking without. They are not heavy, they are refreshing and with honey in it they boost my energy pretty fast. Thank u for the new ideas (-: xx

  14. Oh man, these smoothies sound delicious! I've got a NutraBullet I use every now and then, but not nearly enough. I gotta make some more green smoothies. ^-^

    Have you ever tried raspberry mango? The sourness really knows how to treat your taste buds.
