Don’t look at me with those sad-clown eyes (wait… is that a thing?).  It can’t be all Peach Cobbler Cinnamon Rolls around here.  That’s unrealistic (though delicious) and downright daunting (though delicious).

When the day’s diet turns a bit too indulgent, I reach for a blender and try to coax whatever fresh ingredients I have into a healthy smoothie.  It’s not rocket science… it’s mostly just fruit and almond milk.  You know the old song and dance.

If you take away any little gem of inspiration from this smoothie concoction, please let it be the Green Tea Ice Cubes.  Though so so simple, these little blocks kinda thrill me.  All the antioxidants and good vibes of green tea, frozen into a smoothie friendly cube and ready for blending.  It’s a clever way to add more nutrients to our smoothie meal!  I’m into it.

My favorite smoothie boosters include:

•  Chia seeds for their omega powers

•  Maca powder for energy

•  Aloha Green Juice Powder for a major boost of green and minerals

•  Raw Meal Protein Powder for a vegan, gluten, and dairy free protein bang

•  Big handfuls of kale, cucumber chunks, and not bacon.  Whatever you do, don’t add bacon.

Into the blender we go with raspberries (fresh or frozen), almond milk, pomegranate juice (bitterness to balance the sweet), green tea ice cubes, and chia seeds.

The results are sweet pink simplicity.  It’s refreshing.  It’s summer.  I know… it’s not cinnamon rolls.  Let’s be reasonable people who eat reasonable things from time to time.

Note:  For the Green Tea Ice Cubes I brewed a Yerba Mate Green Tea Blend and froze them into cubes.

  1. Sometimes I’m really upset that I’m not a ‘drinks’ person. Give me a cocktail anyday or even a smoothie but when it comes down to tea, coffee, iced tea, mocha – anything Starbucks related and I’m not interested. But when I see how amazing they look and sound, I feel like I’m missing out!

  2. This sounds delicious and I love the addition of green tea ice cubes, but now all I can think about is what it would taste like with bacon…


  3. Yummmm… Need to make some flavored ice cubes, cause they always sound so good.
    Our favorite smoothie mix ins are cacao, maca, and avocado. Yes please. Chia seeds always get stuck in my teeth sadly. Lame.
