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!



Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup, Rice, and a Banana

Tonight I had the Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup with some white rice and a banana.

Amy’s Soups never disappoint me. The soups are always delicious and do not taste canned at all. They are seasoned with onions, tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and other spices. The rice is instant made and the banana was just perfect.

Anyway, enjoy!


Ice Cream

You didn’t read that wrong! yes ice cream! delicious, healthy, fat free, low sugar, and vegan ice cream!

There are many ways to make a delicious vegan ice cream

One way:

– Freeze a banana or as many as you want for future use

– Put the banana in a blender along with 2 tablespoons or cocoa power and Splenda to taste (don’t use brown sugar, it doesn’t mix right)

– Add some soy milk or coconut milk or any other milk alternative

– Blend everything in the blender until the texture is similar to that of frozen yogurt.

– Enjoy!

Another way to make popsicles is by blending any fruit you want with some milk alternative, Splenda, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract and freezing the mixture in popsicle containers overnight. The next day you’ll have some delicious tasting and very healthy popsicles!




And if you don’t want to go through the ice cream making process, then you can buy vegan ice cream at your local whole foods. So delicious is really delicious and you can find many many favors. It is pricey though so making your own assures you’re using the best ingredients and it’s inexpensive.
