3. Coconut Mango and Lime Kale Green Smoothie. This is a great way to get all day energy as well as some extra kale in your diet! Of course, if you prefer other greens (or just have them lying around), feel free to exchange the kale for what you’ve got. The mango, lime, banana and kale combine in your Blendtec or Vitamix blender to make a sweet and tangy green smoothie that even kids will love!
4. Broccoli Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing. If you’re vegan and like to find recipes that appeal to your omnivorous family but still satisfy your diet, this recipe is the perfect middle ground since everyone will love it! It is light yet filling and it tastes decadent. The cherries and sunflower seeds are a great addition, but other seeds or fruits in season or that you have on hand can easily be swapped. This all day energy recipe is too easy and delicious for others not to try! It is also the perfect take-along dish for picnics or potlucks.
5. Cinnamon Toast Smoothie. This GUILT-FREE recipe is definitely an all day energy recipe! It will satisfy any sweet tooth, this cinnamon toast smoothie recipe works well as a breakfast, light lunch or dessert drink. For an even healthier version of this recipe amp up the nutrients by adding 2 cups of spinach or a kale leaf or two. Delicious cinnamon nutrition!
6. Awesome RAWsome Marinara Sauce. There is nothing more guilt-free than a raw, fat-free, (optionally) oil-free, dairy-free recipe like this amazing raw marinara sauce recipe. Our FAVORITE way to eat this is over spiralized zucchini noodles, but you can put it on pizza, gluten-free pasta, or pour over some raw or roasted cauliflower! Every member of the family can make something they will love with this simple five-minute recipe. Your high speed blender will whip this up in under five minutes and you can customize with whatever herbs or seasonings you want to make it go with your menu.
7. Green Monster Smoothie. Creamy, sweet and just a little bit tart, this green smoothie recipe is a great way to kick-start your morning routine all the while squeezing in a huge dose of fruits and veggies! With each sip, you get a jolt of vitamin C to boost your immune system and the dark leafy greens provide a powerhouse of antioxidants. It contains only whole fruit, and absolutely no juice or added refined sugar.
8. Frozen Berry Cherry Pops. These fruit-filled pops will not only delight your taste buds with their bold, fruity flavor but they’ll also nourish your body with healthy ingredients (without the added sugar!). They’re a rush of antioxidants and they’re also creamier than commercial fruit bars, which include more ice, making them much more satisfying. Avoid the mess by whipping them up in a Blendtec or Vitamix blender.
9. True Watermelon Blood Juice. We love to feature watermelon in liquid form and despite all of the beet-skeptics we love the nutritional superpower of beets, so we’ve combined the two to make Watermelon Blood Juice! Super simple to whip up in your Vitamix or Blendtec blender, the lemon and watermelon mask most of the beet flavor.
