Shake it, Shake-a-Shake Shake it!

This is my blender. I love it.



I am currently in love with making shakes, and not the Chik-fil-A/insanely delicious/add-five-pounds kind. I’ve been having some healthy smoothies to replace breakfast and as a snack here and there, and I’m loving them. Here are my two favorite healthy shakes of late:

The Breakfast Smoothie:

  • 1/2 Scoop Raw Protein Powder (I use Vanilla)
  • 2 Tbsp flax seed
  • 1 c. almond milk (or Soy, if you don’t like Almond – I love Trader Joe’s Unsweetened Vanilla almond milk!)
  • 1 c. frozen mango
  • 1 banana

The Sweet-Tooth Snack/Dessert Shake:

  • 1 banana, frozen in chunks in advance
  • 1 c. almond or soy milk
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa
  • 1 Tbsp peanut-butter (you can go healthy or not here, I just use whatever is on hand!)
  • 1 Tbsp truvia/stevia (optional, but it makes it more of a dessert)

Give them a try if you’re looking for some healthy goodness this spring/summer, I promise you won’t be disappointed (unless you’re expecting a handspun Chik-fil-A chocolate milkshake – my personal gold standard for unhealthily decadent shakes, which these are not). Enjoy! I would love any suggestions from readers for other shakes . . .

Do you have any favorite combos?

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
