Happy Friday! I hope you have some fun plans for tonight. To help you recover from whatever fun plans you have for tonight, I’m giving you a treasure trove of vegan fruit smoothie recipes from The 30-Day Vegan Challenge by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. Try one tomorrow morning to cure your hangover, or just fuel whatever weekend fun you have in store. These are really good: I’ve tried them, even though I thought smoothie recipes were a joke (just stick some fruit and protein powder in a blender—how hard can it be?!). But I’m a convert because of these recipes, and I’m not just saying that to be nice because the publisher is letting me share these recipes. Try them and let me know what you think. More

Still, I appreciate the potential health benefits and undeniable convenience of a smoothie, whether blended at home or made-to-order from a smoothie stand. So, because Blisstree likes to explore both sides of an issue, this week we’re all about what healthy ingredients we should add to our smoothie-making machines. Here are ten faves from our Fearless Foodtrainer: More
Smoothies are tasty and healthy, but we tend to make about two or three at home before getting bored by our own concoction. The next time we go on a smoothie kick, instead of getting easily bored by our usual … More
