(3)
September 17, 2018

Back to Vegan Mofo 2018 again after Hurricane Florence! In my last post I wrote about creating a smoothie inspired by my Great Aunt Martha. Today, I write about the smoothie inspired by my Great Aunt Mary. Martha and Mary were less than two years apart in age and were as close as twins. Two… Read More ›

Bless Your Heart Smoothie (Green and Non Green Versions)

Welcome back to Vegan Mofo 2018! This week’s theme … Inspiration! I guess I am a little unusual in that, for most of my life, three of my best friends were a half-century older than me. I am talking about my great-aunts Martha, Mary, and Billie. Our family was close, and my three great-aunts played… Read More ›

Top Ten Tips For Green Smoothie Newbies

It’s Vegan Mofo 2018, and this week’s theme is … INSPIRATION! In my last post, I introduced myself and shared some things about myself  … including that I don’t like salads. Green smoothies have been a very effective way to get around that for me. It’s much easier to drink two cups of leafy greens… Read More ›

Cantaloupe Ginger Smoothie

Fresh cantaloupe, orange juice, ginger, and mint … I adapted this  recipe from a vintage (1997) issue of Veggie Life.  They were calling it soup; I poured mine into a glass and called it a smoothie.  Sweet, tangy, and zesty.  Refreshing and oddly energizing. Admittedly, this smoothie is not for everyone.  If you like your… Read More ›

Indian Lemonade (Nimbu Paani)

This summer, I am officially addicted to two drinks – Watermelon Smoothies and Indian Lemonade (nimbu paani). What makes Indian Lemonade different from … well, lemonade? Well, for one thing it has salt – usually black salt (kala namak), but sea salt will work as well.  Oddly, the lemonade doesn’t taste salty – it just… Read More ›

Watermelon Smoothie

In the quest for better hydration (and an attempt to up my fruit intake), I’ve been experimenting a lot with smoothies. As has the rest of the world.  But for me, it’s been a little more complicated, because … I don’t like bananas. I mean, I really do not like bananas.  But try finding a smoothie… Read More ›

A Perfect Cup of Vegan Chai

When my partner decided to go vegan, giving up chai was his biggest hurdle. Amrik is a boy who loves his chai.  Very early in our relationship, he taught me how to make the spiced, milky tea.  I honestly believe that if I hadn’t been an apt pupil, he would have shown me the door,… Read More ›
