Adventures in Cooking… more smoothies

Jul 29, 2012   //   by Yoga Lisa DC   //   Blog, food  //  No Comments

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I’m back to enjoying breakfast smoothies. Thanks to my weekly fruit deliveries, I’ve had a refrigerator filled with fruit goodness that I won’t allow to go to waste, so I’ve been playing with new combinations and enjoying some classic ones. Here are some of my latest smoothie recipes.

Note: serving sizes vary depending on the quantities used, but in general, most of these make enough for two servings. And for all of these, blend all ingredients and enjoy!

Cantaloupe Summer Smoothie


Cantaloupe Summer Smoothie – when I got two cantaloupes in my weekly delivery, it was a must to create something delicious with them.

- 1/2 a medium cantaloupe
- 1 peach
- 1 nectarine
- 1 orange
- 1 packet stevia
- water, adjust quantity to achieve desired thickness



Chocolate Mint Goodness


Chocolate Mint Goodness – a favorite blend that reminds me of the holidays, delicious with the perfect hint of mint

- Chocolate flavored hemp protein powder
- Spearmint or Peppermint leaves
- 1 packet stevia in the raw
- 3 nectarines (I had a bunch that I needed to use, so this was my chosen application)
- water, adjust quantity to achieve desired thickness




Going Green... again

Going Green… again – I’m getting back to my, almost, daily green smoothies. This is a particular blend that I’ve been enjoying.


- 4 stalks kales
- 1/2 peach
- 1/2 nectarine
- 1 banana
- 1 packet stevia in the raw
- water, adjust quantity to achieve desired thickness

This morning, I turned this into a bit of mint bliss, by adding some peppermint leaves to it.


I’ve been enjoying trying out new smoothie combinations. I look forward to enjoying some more new blends very soon. What have you been enjoying for breakfast? Do you have any fruit combos you’d like to share?
