Liquid Carrot Cake

Liquid carrot cake? Well, kinda. I only had one new years resolution; drink more fruit & vegetable juice. So, I ordered a juicer and been juicing everything I could extract juice from ever since I received it. So far the easy part. The cleaning up after every juice is the hellish part, but that aside. Had I known it could be this tasty I would’ve bought one sooner hoping these…

Fresh Green Smoothie

A friend and I were talking about the new trend in town; green smoothies. Well, our conversation was more about how foul some of them taste. A lot of them, really. It’s like gulping down a mixture of ditch water with fuzzy dead vegetation. No matter how healthy certain things are, and I’m sure they are, if they’re not tasty it’s a no-go area for me. I told her I’d…

Cereal Breakfast Shake

The kid and I have a new favorite breakfast shake. The first time I made this for him, he wasn’t really sure what to think. “Cereal in a milkshake is just weird, mom“, he whimpered as he sat there with a concerned look on his face, clenching his beloved Kellogg’s smacks box. In all honesty, he’s a great sport and always willing to try my somewhat strange dinner concoctions or…

Strawberry Fizz

I know, I know … it’s not the season! I just can’t help myself :) It’s simply one of the best smoothies around; strawberry & banana smoothie. So terribly classic, yet so good. I really crave one every now and then—even though the berries aren’t nearly as tasty as they should be this time of year. To make a great strawberry smoothie you simply have to find the right combination of fruits,…

Did I mention buying a juicer? I think I did. I must have, I mean, it’s a kitchen gadget! Fresh juice doesn’t just taste fantastic and is super healthy, it’s also really comforting to know that if I can’t get my toddler to always eat right; I can definitely get him to drink right. It’s the mommy in me! I sneak vegetables & fruit into everything these days. It just makes…

Breakfast Smoothie

  In my perennial search for the perfect smoothie, I stumbled upon this combination! Turns out to be the perfect breakfast. As much as I like the Tangerine Dream and Jayden’s Smoothie; I just need more fibres to get me through the morning. So I’ve added something I normally don’t care much for; muesli. Plain, unsweetened muesli (with dried fruit) works like a charm when combined with fresh fruit, yogurt…
