Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Posted on August 4, 2011

This dairy free peanut butter protein shake is a great way to start the day.  I like to drink it before I go to the gym –the protein (about 50 grams) gives me energy during my entire workout, and then some.

I’ve been on a major peanut butter kick lately, in fact, this is my third gluten free peanut butter recipe in the last week or so.  Earlier, I posted my Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies, after that I posted my […]

Kale Creamsicle

Posted on October 6, 2010

This dark green, luscious shake is my go to drink when I need a little protein pick me up.

To me, the flavor of the kale is not that pronounced, what comes through is the creamy richness of the protein powder with the tart sweetness of the orange, thereby forming a yummy gluten-free, dairy-free creamsicle experience in a glass.  Enjoy!

Strawberry Lime Shake

Posted on April 16, 2010

I’m loving this gluten free, dairy free Strawberry Lime Shake made of fresh homemade coconut milk.  My boys love it too.  After I took a picture of the shake yesterday and placed it in the fridge, the boys grabbed it greedily and drank it all down.  They have a certain penchant for consuming my photo shoots like that.

Here’s the recipe so you can make your own.

Ginger Cilantro Green Shake

Posted on March 16, 2010

The idea for this green smoothie comes from the amazing Sarma of oneluckyduck.com.  I recently purchased her book Living Raw Food and am loving it.  While some of the recipes can be complex, she has many that can be made in minutes. 

This Ginger Cilantro Shake is a hybrid of her Cilantro-Pineapple Shake and her Bangkok Baby.  Here is my version, a nice healthy green drink for Saint Patrick’s day.

Frank Zane’s Protein Powder Piña Colada

Posted on September 22, 2009

I love making smoothies for myself and the boys.  During the last few months, several people have asked me what kind of protein powder I use in my frozen drinks.  My favorite protein powder, in fact, the only one I use is made of egg white and stevia and is produced by the incredible Frank Zane.

Zane’s Frank Zane Egg White Protein Powder (or protein powder of your choice) is delicious any way you serve it.  I love making a fruit […]

Greeña Colada

Posted on September 4, 2009

Even though summer is coming to a close, I’m still into my green juices and smoothies; more than ever, in fact.  This is one of my favorites and I owe credit to Meghan Telpner as it is based on one of the recipes from the Green Cleanse on her site.

I’m running out to the airport with one of these in hand to refresh and revive me on the dash to Denver.  Soon I’ll be in NYC doing signings and I […]

Raspberry Smoothie

Posted on August 5, 2008

My birthday party last weekend was great fun. The only snafu? Excess victuals. There must have been 1 pie per person in attendance at our gathering. And while a good time seemed to be had by all –a couple handfuls of children jumped on the trampoline with the sprinklers going under it –my refrigerator was still overflowing by the evening’s end.

Luckily, our friends Chris and Larry had their own soiree the next night and were kind […]
