SWEET CHERRY ALMOND SMOOTHIE


Hey, beautiful people. How are you doing today? I'm fantastic. Yesterday I got a lot of good news, good luck, good food and good love. (Stay tuned for deets on that good news. Wink wink.) Sometimes I seriously am concerned that the universe made a mistake in sending all this positivity my way because I feel like I have more than my fair share! Having said that, you won't see me complaining. Heh heh.

Today I'm soaking up and soaking in the good fortune vibes with a DELICIOUSLY PINK smoothie full of only the best foods for your gorgeous bod. I've been making this baby every day this week after my morning yoga and nothing hits the spot better. My mom has been going nuts (no pun intended) with making nut milks lately so I've been able to reap the benefits of always having fresh almond or hazelnut milk in the fridge. I've been adding it to my smoothies, like this one. What else is in here? Cherries, dates, oranges, and a scoop of Jump Up and Go Go just because I love it so much and it gives me ton of energy. It's locally made by a real nice lady. All these ingredients are blended together to make one mean, pink, life-giving drink. For real yo - try this. You're gonna freak.


SWEET CHERRY ALMOND SMOOTHIE

1 cup frozen cherries
1 orange
1 cup almond  milk
3 dates
1 scoop Jump Up and Go Go (optional) 
1 banana (optional) 

Blend it all up and slurp it down! This serves one semi-hungry person.

  1. mhmmm this looks delicious! :) i know that my blender is too weak to process frozen bananas, but do you think it will be able to blend frozen cherries...? :S i really want to try this, but i've damaged the blender once before... well, i guess, i can always go for non-frozen cherries, right?
    oh by the way, have a happy second Advent :)
    all the best ~ maisy

  2. Dear friends, Brahmakumaris are vegetarian... and emphasize positive impact of vegetarianism on the environment. There is Brahmakumaris meditation...that relaxes the mind...nurtures a healthy balance between inner and outer worlds... recharge... rejuvenate the inner-self... From Gita
