Go Bananas!


Yesterday was my wedding anniversary, and we went out for  a delicious vegan lunch of veggie-packed sandwiches and tea, followed by chickpea brownies for dessert.  We were stuffed!  By the time supper rolled around, we were not inclined to have a big meal, so I did some Gardein Golden Fishless Fillets (which are totally amazing, by the way)  with some roasted broccoli and leftover undressed samosas.

We weren’t looking for a heavy dessert, so I whipped up this smoothie and it was the perfect finisher. Try it; you’ll love it!

2 frozen bananas in chunks
2 fresh bananas
2 cups coconut milk
2 Tbsp. flax meal
1 heaping tsp. of cinnamon
2 heaping Tbsp. of peanut butter 

Add ingredients in order listed above.  Blend at medium speed until smooth.  Pour into tall glasses and savour.


Pop Goes the Smoothie!


What’s lemony, creamy, cold and delicious?

Lemon Cream Pie Smoothie Pops! 

1 cup chopped frozen banana

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 cup organic lemonade

zest of one fresh organic lemon

juice of one lemon

1 Tbsp. flax meal

Whiz up in the blender. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze.  Remove and enjoy on a hot day, or just as a fun dessert!

Big kids love them too!
