Fruit Smoothies

I have decided to try some fruit smoothies with the added Alive nutritional shake.

I have created several recipes with fruits and vegetables based on some I’ve seen at fruit smoothie places and also my own.

This one is:

– 8oz of water/coconut water/coconut milk

– handful of kale

– A scoop of Alive pea protein

– Mango slices

– Half an orange

– A banana

Blend it, add some splenda if you wish and enjoy!

 

This one has:

– 8oz of water/coconut water/coconut milk

– A scoop of Alive pea protein

– A handful of blueberries

– Some pineapple slices

– A banana

– A handful of dates

Blend it, add some splenda if you wish and enjoy!

 

You can create any mix of fruits and vegetables for your smoothies. I have found that dates will naturally sweeten the smoothie and banana will cover up some of the after taste of the protein shake.

Here are some ideas: Bananas, apples, strawberries, spinach, dates, kale, blueberries, blackberries, oranges, mangos, etc…The possibilities are endless!

SUPER SIMPLE Vegan Apple Pie

I love apple pie but all the store bought ones have dairy. Forget them! This apple pie will make you wonder why we would ever need to put dairy on anything ever again!

What you’ll need:

– 6 cored, peeled, and thinly sliced/chopped apples (I use red apples because I like it sweet but you can use green apples for a more tart taste or a you can use a combination)

– 1 tbs of powder cinnamon

– 1 tbs of vanilla extract

– 1 cup of Splenda

– 1/3 cup of brown sugar

– 1/2 tbs of nutmeg

– 1/2 cup of apple pie crisp (optional)

– 1 tbs vegan butter (optional) – you can find this at your local grocery store

– 1 ready made pie crust (check the ingredients but they’re usually vegan!)

**Preheat oven to 350 degrees**

1. Core, peel, and thinly slice/chop the apples and put them in a bowl.

2. On a separate bowl mix in the splenda, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and vegan butter. Mix it well so that everything is combined.

3. Add apples to the mix and stir well so that everything is covered in the sugar mix. Don’t skip out on this step! Make sure your apple slices are all covered in the sugar mix!

4. Add the apples to the pie crust.

5. If you decided to go for the apple crusts, add that to the top of the apples.

6. Bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees.

7. Let it cool down and ENJOY!!!

Please let me know how it went! I want to hear from you!!
