Blueberry Kiwi Smoothie Recipe

07.14.14 by Jackie

I've tried shedding a few pounds since our return from Florence, Rome and Paris. Almost every year, the girls join me during the summer in my workout and diet routine. Mimi, Lulu's 14-year-old little sister, surprised me this morning and prepared the fruitiest, packed-with-energy smoothie. She didn't use any additional sweeteners, except for the natural sweetness from bananas, blueberries and golden kiwis

Mimi used our powerful Vitamix blender. For a smoother flow, she also added almond milk. When I first met her, Mimi used to have awful allergies with almonds, but since her teenage years, she has overcome this specific allergy. Unfortunately, we've discovered new ones, especially during our trip to Florence. She's allergic to truffle mushrooms now; go figure!

This is a recipe Maman made for baby Aria. It's a quickly prepared homemade blueberry lemonade. She made it in a blender using blueberries, freshly squeezed lemons and loads of honey. 

Every year, Maman and Papa spend their summer in Camargue, in the southern region of Arles, near the Mediterranean sea. And every year they stock up on extremely flavorful, artisanal honey. 

This drink is not only delicious, but very healthful. Give it a try; it's easy to follow!

It's already our third day in Rome and I have to say the weather is really hot. So hot that pesky mosquitoes bit baby Aria and me so much! My husband Lulu says it's because we're so sweet. I like to think it's because of the things we eat and drink. Speaking of sweet drinks, I prepared a large pitcher of strawberry green tea for the family to enjoy after our visit to the Vatican.

The recipe is ultra easy. I steeped green tea leaves and added fresh, flavorful strawberries and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Turmeric Latte Recipe

As I've mentioned in the past, turmeric is known as a healing spice in traditional Chinese medicine. However, you don't need to feel weak to enjoy this delicious hot drink. I was able to buy fresh turmeric root at a local Indian market a few months ago and I've stored it in the freezer since then. After going through our freezer today, I decided make good use of it and prepared a turmeric latte. It's so delicious, soothing and relaxing, especially with the weather we've been having.

You could prepare this drink with the milk of your choice. If you decide to go with a lower calorie milk such as almond or cashew milk, you could add a bit of coconut cream, oil or ghee (Indian clarified butter) to the turmeric. A little bit goes a long way but it makes such a difference and adds extra oomph.
