It’s January -- out with the holiday treats and in with the healthy new habits -- it’s time to switch out your sweet potato pie recipe for a deliciously healthy Sweet Potato Pie Shake recipe.
August is peak season for fresh peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots, and cherries. These summer delights are commonly referred to as stone fruits because of the large, hard seeds. We added even more vibrant color to this summer smoothie by using a base of hibiscus flower tea. The tart tea nicely counterbalances the sweetness of the fruits and supports healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Sip on this as you savor the end of summer.
A shake-a-day habit is one of the easiest ways to stay clean for life. This week's shake will help you continue that habit as we head into summer. It is a super-hydrating treat loaded with potassium from both the coconut water and apricots. Feel free to mix it up by using other fresh, local stone fruit.
Shakes are a big part of the Clean lifestyle whether you're on the Cleanse or not. They are an ideal breakfast, a great snack, and can even be a light lunch or dinner when you're not very hungry or don't have time to sit down to eat a solid meal.
This is a very adjustable recipe, you can always use any kind of frozen fruit and make delicious variations similar to the crazy red and blue slushies you used to find at convenience stores when you were a kid. But we like these ones; healthy "treats" that won't make your tongue turn weird colors!
You'll have one word for this summery treat: YUM. Loved by kids and grownups alike, this is a decadent tasting yet incredibly nutritious meal that works anytime of the day or night. A great way to energize your morning, kickstart your lunch-on-the-go, or makes the perfect cleansing dinner. Switch the blackberries for raspberries or peaches or blueberries for an equally yummy blend, blend it up and go have a blast!
