Five Favourites for Friday

I feel like I’ve been living on smoothies this week. They’re quick and easy to prepare, and a very healthy alternative to fast food.

Being back in school full time has made for a crazy busy schedule. Taking leftovers for lunch isn’t always an option depending on where I will be on campus. Refrigerator space is limited and microwaves can be difficult to access.

So far, I’ve been making fruit smoothies with almond milk or coconut water. I hope to buy a few items on my next grocery shopping trip so I can try a green smoothie. One of the yoga instructors I see regularly promises they’re tasty.

  1. To ease yourself in, use spinach instead of kale for a milder “green” flavour. Start by adding half of a handful to your favourite smoothie so you don’t taste it as much. Eventually, you’ll learn to love the green! I now add tons of spinach/kale/romaine, and sometimes add a wheatgrass shot or greens powder to that too. It tastes so FRESH! Like life. 🙂

  2. I just so happen to have kale, oranges and mangoes…I think I know what I’ll be trying Saturday post yoga 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love the idea of these healthy smoothies! I think I’ll start out with berries and slowly work into the green varieties 🙂

  4. Great smoothies! It’s juices, smoothies, and superfoods month on my blog! Do check it out! 😀
