Smoothie Queen

I feel like I keep posting about  fast and easy foods. I’m sorry if I seem repetitive or uncreative, but convenience seems to be the headline for my life lately!!! If it takes me five minutes or less to make it, then I’m all in!!!

I have been living on smoothies. I mean who doesn’t love them. They are a great way to incorporate some extra greens, protein, fruits, and vitamins! They also don’t give you an overly full/ uncomfortable feeling. Yup, smoothies are awesome.

Normally, I just take whatever frozen berries I have laying in my fridge, throw in some greens, protein powder, spirulina, and chia seeds and call it a day. Today I was feeling more creative and inspired by the fall weather.


Isn’t this color green gorgeous?! Usually green smoothies come out a muddy green/brown color, but looks so appealing to me :) Wanna know what went into it?


Still interested?? Ok fine I’ll tell you :)

Asian Pear and Pistachio Smoothie

  • 1 small asian pear
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 TBS pistachios
  • 1 cup coconut milk (or almond, rice, soy etc)
  • Spinach (as much as you want!)
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 TBS protein powder
  • 1/2 cup plain 0% greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 packets stevia (I like mine sweet, but add or subtract as you wish)
  • 4 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients and enjoy!!!!



This was so incredibly satisfying. I also was obsessed with the texture. It was so smooth and balanced. Try it out.. I dare you :)

Well, life continues to be absorbed by Big Fish. I suppose it’s not a bad way to spend my time ;)


Sunday Morning Pancakes

One of my fondest memories is pancake breakfasts on Sunday mornings. My mom would always make my favorite: Loaded chocolate chip pancakes. Of course these were topped with a whipped cream smily face, and topped with powdered sugar and more chocolate chips. This was my 10-year-old self’s dream breakfast.

…and perhaps it still is…

::Sigh:: to be a kid again.

Well, today is Sunday, which also happens to be my day off. This morning, for some reason, I was craving pancakes and my god did I have pancakes! I have been eyeing a couple of recipes and decided to alter/combine/customize a few to make the recipe my own. I was not disappointed.

Blueberry Pie Pancakes 

topped with Strawberry banana “Syrup”

  • 1/3 cup Flour (I used gluten-free brown rice flour, but any flour will do)
  • 2 TBS rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 2 TBS egg whites
  • 3 packets stevia (more or less depending on how sweet you want)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2/3 tsp baking POWDER
  • 1/2 sliced banana

For the syrup

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 3 frozen strawberries

(I think fresh would work too)

To make Pancakes, combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into a pan sprayed with cooking spray. Flip each pancake once.  You should make about 3 pancakes.

Next, blend frozen banana and strawberries until smooth. Transfer to a microwave safe container and microwave for about 30 seconds.  Pour on top of your pancakes and Enjoy!!!
