Blueberry & Grape Smoothie:

Originally I wanted to make a Blue Berry Sorbet, but since no one wanted to wait for it to freeze I just decided to make a shake instead. I went to the kitchen with no recipe or plan and created a Blueberry-Grape concoction that my family and I really liked, so I thought I’d share it with you. Here is the recipe:

  • 2 cups of Frozen Blueberries, or regular Blueberries whatever suits you best (I added a little more than 2 cups because I had just a small amount left and wanted to get rid of the bag of Blueberries.)
  • About ½ a cup of Water, or however much you want
  • 3 Cups of Spinach
  • 2 Cups of Red Grapes
  • And 1 Tbs. of Honey (I added this before the spinach and grapes because the blueberries were a little sour, but the grapes were sweet enough so next time I wont add any honey.)

This served three people, but the serving size was small so you can add a little more of each ingredient, or just add more water if you want to serve three or more people.

Now, I just made this spur of the moment so it might not be amazing, but I thought it was good so I wanted to share it with my light worker friends. Healthy eating or in this case drinking does wonders for the body, mind and spirit. Namaste to all of you, and hope you enjoy this if you decide to make it.

optional: diced banana mashed into the shake (or use a blender to puree a frozen banana)

Directions: Hand mash the ice cream, soy milk, fudge and 1 Tbsp of peanut butter. Mash until a malt-thickness forms. Then top with another scoop of peanut butter, soy whipped cream and some extra fudge sauce if desired. Serve with a tall spoon.

Sugar, in general, is not the enemy – you just need the right kinds. Sources of sugar like berries, dates, mangos, bananas, and the natural ingredients found in Shakeology, can help fuel your body. It’s the excessive added sugars that will get you, and your waistline. This is perfect for those like me, that sometimes ran out of time, or when you just don’t want to cook or want something light but fulfilling. 

Chocolate Vegan Shakeology and Vegan Tropical Strawberry contain only plant-based proteins and ingredients.

SNL Justin Timberlake ‘Bring It On Down To Veganville' 

I’m no JT fan (though i enjoy his last record) and I generally loathe SNL, but I caught just this last night, because I heard JT would be on SNL, and THAT combination is MAGIC.
