Lately, especially after a long weekend away, I am back on my smoothie game and this Superfood Summer Smoothie hits the spot!

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.

Cherry Lemonade Smoothie

I think we can officially agree that it’s smoothie season

A few weeks back we shared with you my Island Blast Green Smoothie for Healthy Food Friday with American Express. Today, let’s switch gear to a drink turned smoothie. Cherry lemonade… smoothie style!

P.S. If you need a quick reminder on how to build the perfect smoothie, this is for you!

Build the ultimate smoothie
Let’s do this! My secret smoothie weapon? Chia seeds. They add that little extra creamy texture, plus are loaded with health benefits. They are packed with antioxidants, high in omega-3 fatty acids, and are loaded with Vitamin C, Iron, and Potassium.

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!

What are your favorite smoothie ingredients?

Creamy ‘Mounds’ Smoothie

Sometimes breakfast is just better with a little something sweet (that’s packed with nutrients), delicious, and made with good-for-you ingredients! I personally am a huge fan of the coconut/chocolate combination. Reminiscent of a mounds chocolate bar in smoothie form, if you will! Okay possibly a slight stretch to the candy bar, but the flavor combination- on point!

In this smoothie I tried out Silk’s new Cashew Milk. Oh the creaminess! When you can’t make your own, it’s amazing that these products have hit the shelves! Oh and P.S., If you sign up for their newsletter you can grab a coupon!

This smoothie is: creamy, coconut-y, chocolate-y, and delicious!

Chocolate Coconut Smoothie

I haven’t posted a smoothie in a while! Since I’ve been smoothie-ing-it-up (just ignore me) a lot lately, I thought I’d bring you a new favorite. Chocolate + Coconut = delicious. Nothing else needed to say. This smoothie gets extra creamy from the coconut/nut butter addition plus the chia seeds. Creamy chocolate shake with a hint of coconut flavor. I’m in.
