Easy Ice Cream Breakfast

Ice cream for breakfast?! Yes, please! This idea was inspired by my friend Rick, who can't have anything acidic. I can't take full credit for this recipe, I've seen it online before many times. The flavors & colors (yes I see food as colors) I chose myself. Pick any flavor you prefer, the possibilities are endless for this HEALTHY, ANTIOXIDANT Easy Ice Cream Breakfast. Of course, this can be made for any time of the day. Frozen bananas are the base of this recipe. Add any flavor you want, I chose raspberry.
Tastes, looks & feels like ice cream but better!
You only need 2-3 ingredients for this & they're probably already in your kitchen.
Frozen bananas, raspberries, choc chips
For this I blended till smooth:
3 frozen bananas
4 handfuls frozen raspberries
Few splashes almond milk
It will probably be very thick, add more milk as necessary.
Go Ninja Go
Add dark chocolate chips to top
Feels like it's meh bday!
Now this is something my sensitive immune system can enjoy and eat as much as I want!
Medicinal food makes me feel gr8!
It does melt kind of fast. Any left overs just add ice, blend & drink as a smoothie!
Cheers to you, Rick!

Acorn squash & refreshing green smoothie

Went back to fall foods today, I just felt like it. So I went to the store for some Acorn Squash. I've posted how to make it before, but I will again cause it's so easy. Cut in half, spoon out seeds, sprinkle with brown sugar & walnuts, bake at 400 for 1hour 30 min.
So pretty!

To go with it I made a refreshing green smoothie I found online. It tasted amazing but had lots of pulp in it. Just strain the finished product before drinking.
Yes!
Refreshing green smoothie:
JUICE 1/2 cucumber
JUICE 1 rib celery
Blend with:
1 cup pineapple
1/2 lime
Water
Garnish with lime
(If you don't like it pulpy just strain it 1st)

This green smoothie is anti-inflammatory! Thanks to pineapples bromelain.

Rooted blueberry smoothie

Today my body was craving rooted veggies such as beets & turnips, as well as blueberries. I thought, How can i make these rooted veggies & blueberries into a delicious smoothie. Here ya go! By the way, I never measure anything for smoothies.
Bob was making me laugh.
For this smoothie you'll need a blender & a juicer. You'll need the following: beet juice, blueberries, strawberries, oj, mango, kale, lime. Of course you can eliminate & add as you prefer.
Kale leaf, mango & blueberries, frozen strawberries. 

Did you know kale juices? This is how much juice 3 kale leaves gave me this time. The fresher they are the more juice they'll provide.
Smells strong! Add sweet fruit to hide taste.

Add freshly juiced kale to the ingredients below. Blend all together, add lime, put on some good tunes like 311 & enjoy! :D

Rooted Blueberry Smoothie:
2-3 handfuls blueberries
Handful strawberries
1 mango
Splash beet juice
About 1/2 cup orange juice
2-3 juiced kale leaves
Splash of lime
Lime for garnish

Now I'm feeling famished for a 311 sandwich. 

Gluten free veggie pizza with carrot fruit juice

The other day I was feeling cheesy & craving carbs. I also crave my healthy smoothies & juices now. So I whipped up this yummy carrot fruit juice with produce in my fridge. It turned out amazing! Sweet, but not too sweet, and cool & refreshing. Give it a try!
Juice the following:
2 carrots
3/4 cucumber
1 orange (peeled of course)

Put freshly squeezed juice in blender
Add strawberries & blend till smooth
Add ice & cucumber slice for garnish

Now for the gluten free veggie pizza to the rescue! I buy Udi's GF cheese pizza. Just add baby spinach leaves & that's it!

It is really so easy being healthy, even when I feel like being bad! Nom nom nom
