{drink the rainbow! – chartreuse vitamix smoothie}

30 Apr

this one is SUPER yum and i just love the colour!!!  another great post-workout drink!

greenmangosmoothie-1

– frozen mangos {about 1/4 cup}

– frozen pineapple {about 1/4 cup}

– frozen bananas {about 1/4 cup}

– coconut milk {about 1 cup}

– splash of orange juice

– handful of fresh spinach

– a couple pitted dates

–  sprinkle in some golden flax seeds

i’ve somehow almost got it down to a magical science now- that whatever i put in my vitamix makes *just enough* for this glass jar i drink out of {which i believe is about 12 ounces}:

isn’t that colour awesome?!?!

{missing NYC – cherry blossoms, the perfect portrait accessory}

26 Apr

i’m reminiscing about brisk spring foto shoots in central park like the one with this beautiful couple from singapore…

Cecylia and Sub

cherry blossoms just reek of spring – quite literally! 😉

and i think we are finally entering spring here in colorado – even though it’s doubtful i’ll see any of these here!  warmer temps are expected for our weekend, though – and i look forward to going for a walk by the lake, working in the garden, and having a smoothie outside on the patio.  i hope yours is filled with warmer temps also – among other delicious things!

{i heart the vitamix!}

this post is probably going to sound like a sales pitch or something – whatever!  i love love love my vitamix!

{kohlrabi is cool!}

kohlrabi-1

meet kohlrabi. i tried this yummy vegetable about a year ago when it first showed up in the produce department. it’s super-cool-looking for one, and it turns out it’s rather delicious and good for you!  kohlrabi contains loads of vitamin c as well as some fiber and potassium.  mostly i love the fun texture and the leaves are actually really good as well, so i saute them as a side… Continue reading

{drink the rainbow! – clementine creamsicle vitamix juice}

23 Apr

this is super delicious, as you can imagine!!

my only issue with this drink right now is that i want one, and yet it’s snowing outside, so it’s just kinda weird… have i mentioned how i’m so beyond ready for spring?!? – even though technically it ought to be here by now…! sigh…

randomvitamix-6
for this creation, i used some clementines i bought in a bag and just pre-peeled some for smoothies and snacking…

randomvitamix-7
– clementines {about 3/4 cup}
– coconut milk {about 3/4 cup}
– ice

blend on high until desired consistency is reached and ENJOY!
coconut milk is wonderfully creamy and makes drinks like this extra delicious and frothy.
