HAPPY 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY (or thereabouts!) to my BLOG!
I am so excited to be participating in Vegan MoFo 2014 as a celebration. I have come along way since starting this blog. From being so afraid to make up my own recipes (literally shaking while my first real recipe was in the oven!) My recipes at first did not usually come out all that impressively. But now I’m excited to be having some really delicious things happen, and recipes becoming the biggest focus of my blog. Since I’ve tested a lot of the recipes I created for Vegan MoFo already, I know you are all in for a big treat!! I can’t wait to see what this next year of blogging brings!
Cranberry Orange Dream Smoothie
So Fall is just around the corner and I wanted to make a new smoothie that features a famous Fall ingredient aside from pumpkin—cranberry sauce! The cranberries do not overpower this smoothie and are not the most prominent flavor. Overall though, they make the smoothie sweeter and give a unique, comforting taste. The flax gives it some Omega 3 vitamins, something I’ve been trying to incorporate into my cooking more but haven’t been able to find many ways yet besides smoothies.
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup plain flavored almond milk or water
- 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 cup baby spinach or other greens
- 1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
- 1/2 tbsp flax meal
- 1 scoop plain or vanilla protein powder
- 1 tbsp agave or liquid stevia to taste
Blend and drink.
