,,One of the delights of life is eating with friends, second to that is talking about eating.
And, for an unsurpassed double whammy, there is talking about eating while you are eating with friends. ,,

We all know that eating raw fruits and vegetables is extremely beneficial to our health. However, finding the time to eat enough fruits and vegetables per day can be difficult with too busy lifestyles. Smoothies offer unique health benefit and are loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. Smoothies made from fruits or vegetables are an excellent way to enjoy a delicious drink that offers good nutrition. This is the real fast food and I’m not talking about how fast the food gets to your mouth but how fast the body gets the benefits of what are you eating.A smoothie is a blended, chilled, sweet beverage made from fresh fruits or vegetables. In addition to fruits or vegetables, many smoothies include crushed ice, frozen fruits or yogurt.
Feel free to experiment; there are thousands of fruits and vegetables to be mix.
Here are some of the recipes I made. The recipes are for 4-5 portions:
1. Blueberries, banana and soy milk
- 200 gr banana
- 200 gr honey
- 300 ml soy milk
- 200 gr ice cubes
2. Mango and coconut milk
- 400 gr mango puree made from fresh mango pulp or from compote 400gr
- 400 gr coconut milk
- 100 gr honey
- 200 gr ice cubes
3. Sea buckthorn, tofu ice cream and pine syrup
- 200 gr frozen sea buckthorn 200gr
- 100 ml sea buckthorn syrup natural sugar free
- 125 ml pine syrup natural
- 200 ml soy milk
- 300 gr tofu ice cream – I used lactose free and sugar free
- 200 gr ice cubes
4. Strawberries, yogurt and agave syrup
- 200 gr frozen strawberries
- 500 gr natural yogurt
- 100 gr agave syrup
- 200 gr ice cubes
5. Orange, Carrot and Ginger
- 2-3 oranges (300gr) peeled
- 200 gr grated carrots
- 50 gr ginger
- 300 gr ice cubes
Squeeze one of the oranges into your blender to provide enough juice to help it blend. Then add the rest of the orange pulp and the second orange, grated carrots , ginger and ice.Blend on high speed until smooth!

Spinach - we all know the benefits of spinach - rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Spinach usually takes the flavor of other ingredients it is mixed with, so if you don't really like this vegetable, you will not feel it.
6. Spinach and pears
- 200gr frozen spinach
- 200 gr peeled fresh pears or from compote
- 100 gr agave syrup
- 300 ml soy milk
- 200 gr ice cubes
This is a combination that I want to do for long time and is amazing.
7. Cauliflower and chocolate ice cream
- 250 gr frozen or fresh cauliflower
- 250 gr chocolate ice cream
- 300 ml soya milk
- 200 gr ice cubes
- 100 ml agave syrup
Enjoy. Pin It Now!
