What you’ll need:

  • Strawberries, Bananas, Blueberries, or Apples
  • Kebab Sticks
  • Patriotic Plates

DIRECTIONS:

Get a pack of kebab sticks. Slice strawberries into thin pieces or just cut off the tops, you can also use apples which can be both for the red and white flag colors.  Red goes first followed by white aka (bananas or apples) each one can be sliced into semi-small pieces.  Finally, add the blueberries and repeat the pattern.

As you can see above, you can slice more or less depending upon what kind of look you want and which fruits you like the most.

Berry good green smoothie!

Smoothie, Smoothies rockin’ everywhere. In this day and age, everyone seems to be on the go and needs a quick healthy breakfast. Since, I first started eliminating dairy from my diet not only do I feel less bloated but I actually naturally lost weight. I get my daily servings of supergreens (kale, apples, kale, spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa, wheatgrass, barley leaf, broccoli, and spinch)via Coconut Greens and add a banana for extra potassium with berries that are full of antioxidants. Throw in cinnamon, flax seeds, and any other protein butter: peanut butter, cashew butter, walnut butter, whatever you prefer. Get your morning started right. It’s simple ingredients, non-dairy milk, frozen fruit, banana, coconut greens powder, flax seeds, and a dash of cinnamon and you’re good to go for the whole day. Say goodbye to those fast-food cravings, and hello to a more plant based diet that will have you feeling good and looking good. No joke! But as you can tell, I’m totally obsessed with my Coconut Greens inspired smoothie. Get scoopin’
