Hi Everyone. How are your lives going?
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of leafleting for Mercy for Animals coupled with job searches. It’s a glamorous life I lead. I haven’t forgotten about my little blog, though. I’m constantly thinking about the direction I want to take my blog and how I’m going to make that happen. One big thing I want to start doing is vlogging. If you’re a regular reader (especially you guys who don’t comment very often), would you be into me doing vlogs? Does anyone really want to hear me rant? Eventually I’ll do non-vlog videos too, like DIYs and such, but for now I just want to get into the mindset of being in front of my camera and editing and all that jazz.
I’ve realized that I don’t want The Vegan Mishmash to be a recipe blog. I love sharing food porn, but I’m not a recipe creator. Following other people’s recipes is much more satisfying for me. I want this to be a lifestyle blog mingled with my day to day stuff. Two years later, I think I’m finally figuring out what I want here. Took long enough, right?
Anyways, one thing I do think I’m good at is making smoothies. So here are my top 5 favorite smoothies I shared here on the The Vegan Mishmash.
This smoothie is wonderful, and based off a smoothie at the natural food store near my university. Filled with antioxidants from the berries and omega 3 from the flax, this smoothie powers my brain throughout the morning.
Can you say dessert smoothie? This smoothie so satisfying after a savory meal, or for breakfast. Cherries and vanilla belong together. Just saying. Ben loved it too.
This smoothie makes me smile. With cherry juice, fuji apples, frozen strawberries, and hemp seed, what’s not to love? It’s sweet and smooth and full of nutrients, plus it’s a a little different from my usual smoothie as I didn’t add any banana at all.
I used a Vegetarian Times recipe as inspiration for this smoothie. Mango, strawberry, avocado, lime juice, and walnuts blend beautifully with coconut water, making the ultimate, nutrient-packed breakfast.
I used Macro Greens in this smoothie to give it an extra boost, but who doesn’t love the tropical combination of mango and pineapple. It makes me feel like I’m in the Caribbean.
What are your favorite smoothies? Leave a comment. And seriously, please let me know if you’d like some vlogs (video blogs). I want to know.
