Snickerdoodle Smoothie

Do you like Snickerdoodle cookies? Then your are going to love this smoothie!

Unlike the cookies, this smoothie is healthy; so you don’t have to feel guilty while slurping it down.

Warm Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

When the cold weather sets in I naturally turn to warmer food and drink such as soup, stew, broth, and tea. A cold smoothie is just not appealing.

Here are a few benefits of including peanut butter in your elixirs (and smoothies): Continue Reading →

Believe it or not this is my first recipe featuring walnuts. There will be more to come featuring this healthy nut.

Here are some of the top health benefits of this lovely nut:

Morning Sickness Smoothie

Morning sickness is not something I have personal experience with. The recipe and information in this post is based on research and my partner’s firsthand experience.

While I was hoping to be able to provide a silver bullet cure for morning sickness, it doesn’t exist. However, you can take steps to help prevent morning sickness and take measures to alleviate when it strikes.
