As much as I love baking for breakfast, on some of these summer mornings where you can already feel the heat coming at 8 a.m., a smoothie is in order.

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie | PDXfoodlove

I can’t believe the crazy amount of stuff we accomplished today and this weekend. We finished up some homemade orange liqueur. We made cake, scones, fish tacos, corn fritters, and of course, a cocktail. And, I got a ton of laundry done. But it’s been a hot one. The windows are all open and they […]

Non-Scary Green Smoothies

Green Smoothie

Ever since I’ve begun to widen my culinary horizons – I’d put the start date somewhere in high school – I’ve had one rule for myself: eat everything – even if I think I won’t or don’t like it (the only exception: insects/worms/slugs will be decided on a case-by-case basis). I’ve found that usually if […]

Blood Orange Mango Smoothies

Blood Orange Mango Smoothie

It’s been a while since I’ve done a smoothie recipe! Mostly because it is gross outside. But I was looking for a good pre-workout breakfast. I know I’ve been yakking about boot camp a lot lately, but I love that class! It’s like my favorite part of team sports practice – challenging yourself though conditioning […]

Apples in smoothies? Unusual, yes. But I thought it was worth a try. I threw a roughly chopped Granny Smith into this smoothie for a little extra tart flavor, and it totally worked – usually I have to add a bit of lime juice to make mellow smoothies pop. I think the apple added a […]

Fitness Focus: Vanilla Banana Berry Smoothie

Well, it is finally hot for real in Portland. Yesterday it was 103. Today supposedly the high is 93. I know it’s nothing compared to what the Midwest has been dealing with, but it still is not my favorite thing. The heat keeps me up at night, and it’s hard to stay hydrated and headache-free. […]

Fitness Focus: Papaya and Greek Yogurt Smoothie

I had this a few minutes ago for breakfast, and it was so tasty that I preempted the beautiful cake I had planned to post and used this one instead: It was the perfect post-run breakfast. This is my first adventure using papaya personally. They are kind of expensive, but different and fun – the […]

Peachy Pineapple Greek Yogurt Smoothie

Also known as Friday breakfast. At some point on Wednesday, a ripe peach was left on my desk. I have no idea from whence it came, but it smelled delicious and I took it home. And then, a few days later, I made it into this smoothie. I was also able to use the last […]
