Green Summer Smoothie
I realize I never gave you my weekend recap LAST weekend. We got back Monday night and the week just sort of caught right up with me. I mean really, where are these weeks going? FLYING BY. Well, now that another weekend has passed, why not go back in time and chat about the previous one, right? Right!
We went to Toronto to visit Mike’s family and to celebrate his grandma (bubbie)’s 90th birthday. What a milestone! We had fun family dinners and a nice big brunch to celebrate 90 amazing years.
We spent time with Mike’s cousins, and went to his cousin Zoe’s new home (congrats, you two)! I love love love going to Toronto to visit! So many amazing people to see in always too short of an amount of time. Zoe’s new company, Schmooz, is all about connecting brands with social media, which is obviously right up my alley. Canada friends & brands— I highly recommend Schmooz for your business! While in Toronto we also got to spend some time with Davida from The Healthy Maven, who I’ve been great friends with since we met (e-met first, then met in real life later). I love love love spending time with her and her boyfriend, and the four of us just have the best time!
Now we’re back to this weekend and we laid low here in Boston! I hope you had an amazing weekend and I say we kickstart the day with a really really good GREEN SMOOTHIE.
You guys, I LOVE this smoothie. I first tried a variation of it from my local Whole Foods and thought about it way too much for days after. Naturally I needed to make my own little version of it.
Packed with flavor.
Tastes DELICIOUS (I promise).
And Packed with nutrients to fuel your day.

This Island Blast Green Smoothie is seriously the Best. Smoothie. Ever. It’s just the right sweet, packed with tons of greens, and is super refreshing. The combination may seem interesting, but trust me, it’s perfect!
Every morning at Round Hill Jamaica I got myself a green smoothie and some bacon and eggs. Never really being a huge morning smoothie person, I knew I had to recreate this amazing green smoothie.
Feel free to get creative with this recipe! I love adding chia seeds and flax seeds for extra protein and fiber to make this smoothie extra filling!
Island Blast Green Smoothie
- Place all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until completely smooth, about 30 seconds.
- Divide between two glasses and serve immediately.
If you do not have a high-speed blender, coarsely chop the parsley, cut the cucumber into chunks, and grate the ginger before adding them to the blender!
