Today is RAWctober day 1. It’s a whole month of raw vegan eating. I don’t have a ton of raw recipes on here, but I’ll probably post more as the month goes on. Like this one! A seriously yummy and creamy chocolate blueberry smoothie perfect for some added sweetness to your day. Enjoy!
Y’all. I’m obsessed with Watermelonade. We all know this. I’ve made regular, Pineapple, and even mango. Also peach! But I bought some clearance plums the other day and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. Thus, Plum Watermelonade was born and it’s DELIGHTFUL! Goodness, life is amazing.
This apple pie smoothie, y’all. There’s something about it that’s super comforting. It reminds me of happiness and a simple way of life. It’s sweet and perfectly spiced, and though it’d be better in the fall, I’m all about bring fall to me right now (like we did with the Baked Apple Cider Oatmeal). So let’s go make this delicious smoothie!
Mine’s green because I add greens, but you don’t have to. Starting with a base of bananas is a good idea though. Then we add all the other amazing ingredients, like apple, dates (for sweetness though optional), cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts, oats, and flax/chia. You can even include maca or turmeric (+ black pepper for more turmeric bioavailability) for an even healthier drink!
I really can’t get enough of this one. I’ve made it before, but it was time to make it again – and boy, am I glad I did! It’s refreshing but comforting right now as summer continues to heat up my part of my world. Cheers to you if you make one!

A smooth, sweet, creamy, and perfectly spiced apple pie smoothie perfect for breakfast on a fast-paced morning. Throw in the blender and go!
- 1-2 ripe bananas (frozen works best)
- 1 cup water
- 1 handful greens (I chose power greens)
- 1 apple, roughly chopped (I prefer pink lady or honeycrisp)
- 1/4 cup oats
- (optional) 1-2 dates, pitted (for sweetness)
- 1 small handful walnuts
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- (optional) 1/4 - 1/8 tsp turmeric (+ a dash of black pepper for better bioavailability)
- (optional) ice (as needed)
Add all ingredients to blender one by one. Then blend until smooth and well combined.
Pour into glass and enjoy. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator for up to 48 hours, though best when fresh.
It’s still REALLY hot here in Phoenix, so something cold hits the spot. Something like this juice! It’s a yummy mix of orange juice and frozen mango that blends well together. It’s sweet, smooth, and delicious. So let’s go make some mango orange juice please and cool the heck off!
As you can tell, I’m in love with golden milk right now. It’s creamy. It’s smooth. It’s sweet. It’s spiced. It’s downright delicious. And sometimes it’s chocolaty, like the one we made last week. So let’s make a smoothie out of it, okay? Okay!
Y’all. Several summers ago, I made Watermelonade and it blew my mind. This summer, I saw a post on facebook from The Chocolate Vegan about blending watermelon with pineapple instead of lemon and thought, Yeah, I should try that. Pineapple watermelon juice sounds good.
Holy moly, you guys. I’m so glad I went for it!! But I had to take it to the next level with some lemon juice. And YESSSS that’s even BETTER! So let’s get in the kitchen and makes some Pineapple Watermelonade, shall we? Come on!
A few months ago, we had SO MANY GRAPEFRUITS! A local group of kind folks volunteer to “rescue” citrus from trees in a couple of retirement communities. The people with orange and grapefruit trees in their yards can’t eat it all and don’t want to pick it, so we do it for them. In return, we get to keep most of it. We can use it or donate it, and it’s awesome. We tried to use a lot of it, but it was SO much fruit!!
One of my favorite things EVER is juicing oranges and blending the juice with frozen pineapple. OMG, you guys. You get this deliciously refreshing, ice-cold, sweet drink perfect for breakfast or a summer afternoon cool-down. It’s tropical, juicy, and so freaking yummy! I could drink it every day. Plus, it’s so easy to do! Especially if you don’t juice your own oranges. But that’s how I prefer it. Totally up to you though.
I wanted something fresh, sweet, and really delicious, and a smoothie usually quenches that. Blueberries are a main staple in my diet, and they’re also fresh, sweet, and really delicious. So I figured I’d start there – with a blueberry pie smoothie. Smoothies are so refreshing! And it’s already heating up here in Phoenix, so this hits the spot.
(Sorry to the people who are experiencing snow! This was scheduled weeks in advance. My apologies.)
I aim to have a green smoothie every day. Does that happen? No. Of course not. Haha. I love to bake, so I inevitably end up doing that instead of making a smoothie. The good thing is that I usually put flax, walnuts, and turmeric in most of the things I bake, which is mostly why I like to make green smoothies: so I can hide those things and get them into my diet.
