Strawberry ShortShake

See what I did there? This was the last shake of my 7 day shake bender.  I wasn’t feeling super creative and thought to myself: what dessert is virtually impossible to screw up? Answer: strawberry shortcake.  Vanilla cake with whipped cream and strawberries. Fool proof.  The shake come out not only looking great, but tasting […]

Mocha Shake

I can’t believe my week of smoothies is almost over! There are still so many more recipes and ideas out there I bet I could do a month.  I’m feeling great after the past five days.  Yes, at the end of the day I am definitely looking forward to a hot meal that requires chewing, […]

Berry Green Smoothie

See what I did there? I love a good berry pun. So, I’m beginning to think that the magic ingredient is the date puree. It’s not much, but it adds this awesome, rich sweetness to everything.
