1 apple, cored and diced

1/2 in. finger fresh ginger

1 1/2 tsp. honey (I used raw Acacia honey because it was on sale)

For a layered smoothie, blend the spinach, peppermint, cucumber, ginger, turmeric, apple, ice cubes, and 1 C water until smooth.  Empty into a glass.  Wash out blender.  Put raspberries and remaining water into blender and blend until smooth (you may need more water, so don’t be afraid to add more if you do, so as to not burn out your blender’s motor).  Add to green layer.  Enjoy!

Raspberry Matcha Nicecream

I kept seeing pictures of nicecream (banana ice cream) on Instagram, so I figured that I better see what all of the hype was about, and oh, my, am I glad that I did!   Nicecream is a great way to have a sweet, cold treat and eat tasty fruit!  It’s definitely going to become one of my go-to’s on a hot day, and I can’t wait to try making it different ways.

Ingredients:

2+ frozen bananas

1C frozen raspberries

1/2 tsp. matcha (next time I will use 1 tsp. because I want to taste the tea more)

1C unsweetened vanilla flax milk

Directions:

Add the bananas, raspberries, and milk to your blender and blend until smooth.  You can either add the matcha to the entire smoothie, or take out half of the smoothie, reserving it in a separate glass, and add the matcha to the remaining half of the mixture in the blender, and blend again until smooth, topping off the glass with it after you are finished.  Enjoy!
