Raw Mint Chocolate Green Smoothie

by Sarah E. June 22, 2013

Today’s Raw Mint Chocolate Green Smoothie recipe pays homage to two of my all-time favorite smoothies:  Cafe Gratitude‘s “I Am Cool” milkshake, a minty, cacao nib-filled dessert treat, and HipCityVeg‘s “Groothie,” a Philly favorite with spinach as the key green ingredient. I am really happy with the way this smoothie turned out, bursting with fresh mint from the Clark Park Farmers’ Market and packed with superfood flavor. I hope you enjoy my twist on two classics!

Ingredients:

1.5 frozen bananas

1 cup fresh spinach

3-4 fresh mint leaves (I used peppermint leaves)

6-7 drops stevia (optional)

3/4-1 cup frozen pineapple

1 Tbs cacao powder

1 tsp maca

2 tsp chia seeds

3/4 cup ice

Instructions:

Blend all ingredients. Enjoy topped with raw chocolate shavings, fresh berries, buckwheat groats, granola, goji berries, etc.

I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg Bake

by Femme Fraîche March 06, 2016

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
