Smoothies are so easy to create...they are quick,
Grab a blender

One can simply adapt to their taste, flavors, preferences
and also thickness..light and smooth..
heavy and thick and rich
There are truly a Kazillion ways to make a smoothie
Everyone will of course have their own preferences of ingredients
*Use Bananas to create thickness

Whatever your food/beverage preferences are..create what you like!

Smoothies are wonderfully nourishing,
health enhancing
full of nutrition
easy to digest
simple quick energy boosters

They are gorgeous eye-candy too!

yet light

Awe-inspiring Goodness...
They pack a powerful punch!
Wonderful Color Therapy too don't you think?!

The Blueberries in this smoothie give it
this dazzling purple power..
and such a Color-Rush!

If you experience food challenges,
a smoothie may be something you'd like to try.
Or if you just have loved them forever..create away!
There was a time in my life, when I was not able to eat solid foods..smoothies were a real life saver !
Simple..pure...and nourishing..!

What a beautiful and powerful post! I have been drinking smoothies for quite a while, and I truly enjoy them.
I make green smoothies more often than any other kind, but looking at your luscious purple one makes me want one of those!
Your photography and composition, as always, are stunning : )

What a beautiful smoothie and the last one of your empty smoothie is a nice touch. I want to try blueberries in my next smoothie just so I can enjoy that gorgeous color. Also, I usually put my smoothies in a simple plastic cup--not too pretty. Why not use a gorgeous glass and enjoy the appearance of the juice while I drink it? Thank you for a visual smoothie boost. :)

Hi Kiki,thank you very,very much for you visit and lovely words.Your blog is also very inspiring and full of goodness.
I'm a strong believer that you are what you eat and I do pay special attention to what goes inside my body.Right now I am 80% raw vegetarian... and smoothies are a big winner when comes to eating healthy. I love smoothies,they are a fabulous, complete,heathy and powerful meal on one go.What is the recipe for this one and is it made with berries or beets?
lovely,lovely,lovely post!!!

Great post Kiki! Your photography is wonderful in this post!

I like smoothies too. . . my fav is rice milk, cacao powder and a banana. I like to use blueberries too with bananas and rice milk. Mango and coconut water is a good one for summer!

I need to get a cool glass to drink them out of like you have!

You have elevated the smoothie to a new elegance Kiki- I love them too and they are such a cleansing way to start the new year. I just bought a magazine called "Whole Living" that has an array of smoothies on the cover. None of them are presented as beautifully as yours though. Cheers!


LauraX said...

Victoria, these photos are the best!!! And now, in the midst of NH winter I am longing for fresh fruit...will have to deal with frozen berries from the supermarket with my bananas:(

Chandrika Shubham said...

I love Smoothies too and often put fresh Spinach in our Fruit Smoothies... the G-Kids like Spinach but can consume more of it in a sweet drink.
