Suicide Smoothie

(0)
August 18, 2020

No, this smoothie does not contain cyanide! The name comes from those drinks children make at the soda fountain, combining ALL the soda flavors into one big cup. Which is sorta what I do with this smoothie. I usually make it on Sunday – or whatever day I do my weekly grocery shopping or place… Read More ›

Halloween Smoothies

“What do you give a ghost for breakfast? A BOOBERRY Smoothie, of course!” – Great Aunt Martha My Aunt Martha was always the pun-ny one in the family!

Mary’s Mojito (Watermelon/Strawberry/Mint Smoothies – Pink and Green Versions)

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.

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.

Valentine’s Day is a great holiday for vegans! (Unless, of course, you’re a vegan whose lover just ran off with your new truck, the money in your savings account, and your best friend – then Valentine’s Day would suck.)

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 ›
