Hey, friends! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, as they say. And what better way to celebrate than with eggnog?Continue reading “Vegan Eggnog Smoothie”
This smoothie will knock your socks off and wake you right up on a hot summer morning! Fresh mint and kale are hidden beneath a layer of chocolate, banana, and Medjool dates, creating a refreshing and sweet smoothie packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!
Some things were made for each other. Peanut butter and jam. Cam and Mitch. (Veggie) Burgers and (sweet potato) fries. Apple and cheese. A kiss and a squeeze. To that list, I will happily add chocolate and mint. Ever since I was a young one and discovered the magic that is the Girl Guides chocolate mint cookies, I have been hooked. However, my preference now is fresh mint over mint flavouring and raw cacao powder over processed chocolate. Cheers to maturing taste buds, lol!
This tropical-inspired green smoothie bowl is bursting with the sweet summer flavours of mango and coconut, plus it’s packed with calcium, iron, folate, vitamin K1, vitamin A, and vitamin C thanks to the generous amount of kale blended in.

It also has cooling qualities, making this smoothie bowl the perfect heat wave meal. I added protein powder to my bowl to turn it into more of a meal, but you can certainly omit it if you are not a fan. You might want to add some avocado or nut butter instead.

Hopefully you can enjoy it as much as me over the coming days, weeks, and months! I’ve had to take a few days off from running due to a calf strain and am feeling pretty antsy without my favourite form of activity, but I’m trying to look at it as an exercise in patience and mindfulness. :/
