Smoothies & ice cream

Bla bla bla detox bla bla bla smoothies juices bla bla bla healthy. I'm out.

I'm not really one of those people that do detoxes. I feed my body well. I sometimes go a bit crazy on sugary things, but I don't do it every day? It's okay to treat your tastebuds once in a while...errrr...often. Very often. Seriously, I'd rather eat chocolate for a week and gain a shitload of weight, than do another detox. I've done way too many of those in the past few year. I believe in a balanced diet and a daily exercise routine.

If you're rolling your eyes on me right now and thinking I'm an idiot, first - you're wrong, second - you're wrong again. BALANCE. YOGA. I DON'T KNOW? God, I watch The Ellen show way too much. Sorry for that...

I have a super weird love hate love relationship with smoothies and juices. Either I'll go crazy about them and have them every day, or I won't be able to look at them. I'm trying to get rid of that by making various different flavours of smoothies, yet it still never works. Do you have a technique for not being grossed out on smoothies for 6 months? If you do, pLEASE LET ME KNOW.

No matter how fruity I want my smoothie, I'll try to hide in at least some vegetables. Spinach and carrots are my favourites, but kale will do too. I'll sometimes add cooked quinoa for an extra kick of protein. Weird, I know.

Almost raw pineapple & lime ice cream

juice of a lime + zest of two limes

Blend all of the ingredients until the cream riches a superfine texture (NO LUMPS DUDES), than pour it into a glass bowl and put into the freezer. Mix every 30 minutes for the next 4 hours and then freeze overnight. I like to put mine in the microwave before scooping it, since I have no patience to wait for 20 minutes. But you could totally wait for that.

If you have an ice cream maker, by all means use it for this.

  2. Vitamix for smoothies is absolutely unbeatable! The ease of it, the quality of the result, and the health benefits are all wonderful! I couldnt agree more with your feelings....I wasnt sure owning a Vitamix at home would change my life...but it has. Hope to see more of your beautiful food soon!

  3. I rarely post smoothie recipes on this blog, mostly because they are a little out of scope for a baking blog. Smoothie Detox
