Taste of Tie-Dye

Happy Friday! A new smoothie recipe and S+B stack… what’s a better way to start the day?! I thought I would change things up a bit, and try blending two of my favorite smoothies together… The end result: My tie-dye blueberry & banana smoothie.  The contrast of colors and flavors was a great new way to start the day!

Sisco+Berluti Stack of the Day! What are you stacking?

Tie-Dye Blueberry & Banana Smoothie

1 Serving

1 c. unsweetened almond milk

1/2 very ripe frozen banana

1/4 c. frozen mango

1/4. c. frozen blueberries

5 ice cubes

1 pinch of cinnamon

Stevia to taste

Combine almond milk, ice, cinnamon, banana & mango and blend until smooth. Pour half into a glass. Add the blueberries and blend until smooth. Pour the remainder on top of the banana & mango smoothie. Enjoy!

*Bulk it up by adding a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder or 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

Drizzle on the Balsamic

My favorite dressing is a simple drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar. I always find that its syrupy sweetness, yet subtle tang can complement any salad.

Whether balancing out the bitterness of a bed of arugula or topping a bowl of ice cream with macerated berries, its flavor can be used in both sweet and savory dishes.

Try enhancing the balsamic flavor with a sprinkle of sea salt or feta cheese.

Root for the Ginger

The ever so ugly ginger rhizome surprisingly has some pretty perks. Whether grated, pickled, candied or pureed, ginger packs a peppery punch to the palate.  From warming up in the wintertime with my mom’s carrot-ginger soup to dipping the pickled slices in a little soy and wasabi, I have always had a love for this ingredient.

Not only is ginger known for its bold taste, but also its many health benefits:

  • Cleanses & refreshes the palate
  • Fights against the cold & flu
  • Detoxifies the body & clears sinuses
  • Aids in digestion & naseau
  • Reduces muscle pain & inflammation

So, enjoy it with your next salmon roll, blend it into your weekly juice detox, garnish it on your ahi tuna steaks, puree it into your bowl of soup, or add it into a cleansing cup of tea.

Freshly Squeezed

Happy Monday! It’s time to refresh, rejuvenate, and revive for a great week ahead!

My go-to morning refresher is the lemon & water. I squeeze about half of a lemon into a glass of warm water before breakfast. This combination provides a burst of Vitamin C, kickstarts my metabolism and aids in a healthy morning cleanse.
