Inspired by Katie and Angela, I decided to make my own Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie in honor of St. Patty's Day.
It's so pretty, right?! Here's what's in there!
- 1 banana
- 4 ice cubes
- Large handful of spinach
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
- 1 tbsp chocolate chips
It was really good! Light, healthy, refreshing, sweet and green! :-)
The soup I made last night magically turned out quite green too!
Creamy Carrot Chickpea Soup
- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 carrot, chopped
- 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 meyer lemon juice
- 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
- 2 cups water
- 1 veggie cube
- 1 tbsp cumin powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne powder
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
- fresh ground pepper
First, I heated a tablespoon of olive oil in a pot and added the garlic and onion. I sauteed them for a while until the onions were soft, then I added the water, veggie cube and all the spices. Then I threw in the chickpeas, carrots and cilantro. I brought everything up to a boil, covered it and turned the heat down to low. I let the soup simmer until the carrots and chickpeas were soft. Then I transfered the soup to my blender bit by bit and blended it until it was smooth and creamy. I put the soup back in the pot and squeezed in the meyer lemon juice. I then added cilantro and fresh ground black pepper.
This soup was SO good! It made me really happy because it tasted exactly like I wanted it to! It was kind of like a cross between split-pea soup and hummus. Very delicious!
I also made more Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Biscuits :-)
But this time, I switched things up and used coconut oil instead of Earth Balance. I didn't notice too much of a difference in taste. Both versions are delicious, moist, fluffy and sweet :-)
Yesterday morning I took a wonderful yoga class, got my oil changed and then went grocery shopping.
I was thinking about going to yoga again this morning but I'm so sore!! I think yoga yesterday and my training session with Gorden on Tuesday really worked me. I think I'm going to do some mellow yoga at home, some foam rolling and some light exercise today.
I hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll see you later! Much love <3
