Drink the beach.

IMG_2504

Usually my daily Wonder Woman shake involves peanut butter because I am always craving peanut butter cups, but some days I think of the beach and want to bring it to me. This recipe was my quick solution today as I was looking at tickets to fly to Hawaii to visit my family.

Ingredients:

-8 oz coconut milk
-1/2 frozen banana
-1/2 cup frozen pineapple
-1/2 cup frozen mango
-1/2 scoop vegan vanilla superfoods mix
-4 ice cubes

BLEND and pour into glass.

Then…..

-6 oz water or coconut milk (I always go for a blend)
-1 cup blueberries
-1/2 scoop vegan vanilla superfoods mix
-3 ice cubes

BLEND and pour into glass. Top with blueberries or shaved coconut….even a little umbrella if you have one!

ENJOY!

Get your Unicorn Drink On!

You guys know I love unicorns…..right now as I am writing this blog I am staring at a mounted unicorn head. Don’t believe me? Here she is:

As much as I love my unicorn life, I equally love the daily superfood shake I drink. It helps to fill the gaps in my nutrition, eliminates some of the digestive issues I have suffered from in the past, and it allows me to bypass the multivitamin I had to choke down before. Beyond that, I love how creative I can be with recipes while still hooking myself up with a tasty treat that is the same as taking five BIG trips to a salad bar. Huzzah!

Recently I concocted a unicorn version of my beloved ride or die shake and loved it so much I had to share with you all! This recipe is great for summertime, especially since Farmer’s Markets are open and you can snag some amazing fruits!

Katie’s Unicorn Drink

Ingredients:

-1 scoop Vanilla Superfood Mix (I use vegan vanilla because I love the taste. You can grab it HERE in a combo box that also has chocolate!)
-1/3 cup pineapple
-1/3 cup strawberries
-1/3 cup blackberries
-12 to 14 oz water or coconut milk, divided into thirds
-Ice if desired

How to make:

-Blend 1/3 of your vanilla superfoods with one of the fruits and 1/3 of the liquid. I also blend in 2 ice cubes. Once that is blended, pour into glass. Repeat two more time with remaining fruits, superfoods, and liquid. As you pour each layer, a fun unicorn layered effect will happen.

-You can top with whipped cream and sprinkles if you really want to, or you can make your own using coconut cream! I prefer this option so it is still on point when it comes to my meal plan!

***Few things I want to share:

-I prefer water, but coconut milk is my runner up when it comes to liquid. You can use almond, soy, or whatever milk you like.

-I prefer milkshake consistency, so I tend to go heavier on the ice. You can omit if you like it differently.

-Someone will ask if they can use their protein powder. Totally up to you. I will say this: The superfoods mix I use is NOT a protein powder. It does have protein in it like what yours may have, but the OTHER ingredients in it that are all natural that make it different. Read your labels. You may be drinking something you think is good for you that isn’t loaded with emulsifiers, sugars, and crap. A $30 thing of protein powder is NOT the same, so I cannot guarantee that taste. If you do want to try mine, let me know so I can get you the best deal!

ENJOY, my unicorns!

You can’t BEET these recipes!

Yep, you can always expect a pun or two on the blog! Sorry, folks….just a natural comedienne here!

Earlier in the week I shared that I finally found a way to love beets, and that was by adding them to my daily Wonder Woman Shake. I was smart about it….I purchased ones already cut so I didn’t have to deal with any of that, and I did cook them for a bit to make them softer for blender.

There are actually TWO recipes I have been using, and I encourage you to try them both!

Recipe #1: Berry Beet
Ingredients:
-14 oz liquid (I use about 4 oz Califia Almond Milk or Coconut Milk and the rest water)
-1 scoop Vegan Vanilla Superfoods Mix (message me if you need some)
-1 cup Strawberries/Blueberries ( I freeze mine)
-3/4 cup beets
-3 ice cubes

Mix and Blend!

Recipe #2: Nana Beet
Ingredients:
-14oz liquid (same as above)
-1 scoop Vegan Vanilla Superfoods Mix
-1/2 frozen banana
-1/2 cup beets
-3 ice cubes

Mix it up and Enjoy!
