This is Thanksgiving in a healthy cup of yum! Seriously if you just added some
graham cracker crumbles you would have the whole deal. I made this for my little preschoolers and all of them asked for another cup full. It seems sinful... but it's not.
1/2 frozen banana
1 T. peanut or almond butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. pumpkin puree
1 T. honey, or more if desired
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 c. unsweetened almond milk
8 ice cubs
Add all to a blender and blend on up! Serves one so double or triple it up!
Thanks to the Green Smoothie Girl, this hot lemonade drink is a staple for me to keep healthy and fight oncoming germs. Keep these ingredients on hand for when you first start to feel anything brewing or make it a regular part of your diet! It's a super tonic for your liver and kidneys and we want to keep those happy!
4 cups hot water
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice (I used some limes as well)
1/4. c. apple cider vinegar (with the mother strain)
1 heaping T. chopped fresh ginger
2 T. raw honey
dash of cayenne
Blend all ingredients in a blender and drink a tall glass while hot. Keep the rest in the fridge to sip later. Do not reheat! It will kill the good enzymes.
This smoothie is a straight up dessert. This is honestly the treat I crave over anything else and the best part is that there is NO guilt! This smoothie is almost a daily occurrence at our home and I am quite sure I would drink it for every meal if it was allowed! You can use any type of milk, add spinach and even omit the honey!
1 frozen banana, in chunks
1-2 heaping T. peanut or almond butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 T. honey, more if desired
1 tsp. cinnamon (opt)
3 T. raw cacao powder or cocoa
1 T. chia seeds
4 ice cubs
1 C. unsweetened milk of choice. I use Almond
Spinach leaves, optional
Hemp seeds, optional
Blend all in a good, sturdy blender like a Vita Mix until smooth. Drink right away!
I also make this with non frozen bananas with lots of ice as well. I have also used the PB fit in place of peanut butter.
