Smoothie with Pineapple Coconut Milk
Smoothie made with coconut milk and Greek yogurt.
- 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats (I have used Quaker oats)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons chia seeds
- 1 cup coconut milk ( I have used homemade.)
- 1/4 cup Greek yoghurt
- 1 cup pineapple chunks (frozen works as well). I made use of fresh)
- 2 teaspoons sugar (optional). (Adjust to taste for pineapple sweetness.)
In a blender or food processor, combine the oats, pineapple, sugar (if used), and chia seeds. Blend until smooth paste forms. Whip in the yoghurt and coconut milk until smooth.
Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
- 1 cup sliced frozen banana
- 1 pound of natural peanut butter
- a half cup of 1% milk
- 1 tablespoon honey
In a blender, combine all of the ingredients. Blend until completely smooth. Refrigerate or serve right away.
Strawberry, Chamomile, and Quinoa Smoothie
- half a cup chamomile tea
- 1 tablespoon dried chamomile flowers (or 1 teabag) plus extra flowers for decoration
- 1-quart almond milk (or regular milk)
- 14 cups quinoa, cooked
- half a cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- Chamomile flowers should be steeped in hot water for about 5 minutes. If you don’t want to include the flowers in the smoothie, strain them (or remove the teabag). If you want to add them for a more intense flavor, do so. Refrigerate until completely cool.
- Blend the almond milk, cold chamomile tea (and flowers, if using), cooked quinoa, and strawberries until smooth. If necessary, add honey to taste.
- If desired, garnish with dried chamomile flowers.
Kale, Berry, and Acai Power Smoothie
- 1 banana, ripe
- a third of a cup of blueberries
- a third of a cup of strawberries

- 1/4 cup almond milk (or water)
- 1 tbsp ground flax seed
- 1 heaping tablespoon hemp powder
- 1 tbsp of chia seeds
- 1 tbsp acai berry
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- Place all of the ingredients in a blender, remove the banana from the peel first, and blend into a delicious mixture. You may want to add a little more water depending on how liquid you like your smoothie.
- If you want to add some crunch, add some extra chia seeds, oats, and hemp seeds on top.
Note: Smoothies and shakes lose their fantastic consistency after about 30 minutes. So, don’t make it unless you’re ready to eat it.
