Watermelon Slush

Summer has arrived and being 37+ weeks pregnant means I am particularly sensitive to the heat we’ve been experiencing.  This cool, refreshing drink is a big hit at our house these days.  It’s so easy to blend together and what a thirst quencher when you desperately need it!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of seeded  and chopped watermelon
  • 1 cup of frozen strawberries, peaches, melons (whatever frozen fruit you enjoy)
  • 1 cup of club soda

Directions:

  1. Put watermelon in the blender and puree until liquefied.
  2. Add frozen fruit and then club soda.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to serve so it remains chilled.

Enjoy!

Delicious Creamy Chocolate Smoothie (low-glycemic, high in Omega 3’s)

  • 2-3 tbsp of almond butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp xylitol or 4 drops of stevia (optional)
  • 1 ½ scoops of vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 tbsp of cocoa
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

This is an excellent smoothie for anyone wanting to decrease the amount of sugar consumption in their diet.  The creaminess of the smoothie offsets the fact that it has no added sweetness.  Ideal to consume on a candida cleanse as well.

Mix in blender until smooth. Enjoy!
