Pina Colada Smoothie | Wolf Gourmet

Piña Colada Smoothie from Grandbaby Cakes

Lately I’ve been imagining that I’m on a Caribbean island relaxing on a lounge chair on the sand watching the perfect waves wash on the shore. This daydream of course isn’t complete without the perfect tropical drink. Pina Coladas always fit that bill for me. The tropical flavors just sing and come together perfectly.  I feel totally relaxed as I drink one. Recently, I turned my fave cocktail into a smoothie that can be enjoyed for breakfast or anytime of the day by the whole family, including the kiddies. The flavors are perfectly tropical and filled with fruit flavor. It… Read more

Blue Lagoon Smoothie from Sarah Fennel

But because my days are filled with cakes, cookies, and chocolate, in my “real” life I balance these things out with a pretty healthy lifestyle. I work out almost every day, doing a mixture of yoga, HIIT training, and cardio. I eat mostly vegetarian (though every once in a… Read more

Mermaid Smoothie

Mermaid Smoothie from Pineapple and Coconut

Summertime is our favorite time of year. Longer days spent in the sun at the beach and the pool. Collecting seashells and suntans, sun-kissed hair, wearing flip-flops and beach hats daily. Sleeping in and lots of iced drinks, slushies and smoothies to keep us full. This has been a mermaid summer for us so far with the amount of time we have already spent at the beach so I created this healthy and delicious Mermaid Smoothie to go along with it. I am a big fan of adding extra nutrients to fruit smoothies to boost the nutritional value. Often times… Read more

5 Smoothie Building Blocks

Smoothie ingredients can be divided into five broad categories. The first two categories—liquid and primary ingredients—are essential components. The other three categories—protein, sweetener, and intensifier—help enhance the flavor and nutritional value of your drinks. 1. THE LIQUID You need a liquid to keep things moving so the blender doesn’t cavitate. Liquids include all types of milk (such as dairy, soy milk, or almond milk), coconut water, yogurt, kefir, coffee, tea, herbal tea (like hibiscus or chamomile teas), and fruit and vegetable juices. Some fruits, like grapes and citrus, contain enough liquid to be counted as a liquid ingredient in the… Read more
