The-Blender-Girl-Cookbook

Okay folks, listen up.

It’s the end of May and June is just moments away.

Before you head to the local market to buy a jug of sugary lemonade, limeade or orange juice…take a gander at this incredible recipe below.

One of my best buddies, Tess Masters, just came out with a fabulous cookbook called The Blender Girl and it’s beyond amazing and gluten-free and delicious. So, to celebrate her success I’ve decided to share one of her delicious recipes with all of you.

the-blender-girl

The name alone will make you wanna whip out your blender. Tess is a blender mastermind. Honestly- she’s so talented and has been blending up gluten-free, vegan recipes since the day I met her. I’ve already made 28 of her new recipes in this book and let me tell you- she knows how to create an abundance of flavor and satisfaction with whole, real foods. I guess that’s why she’s one of my buddies….

Trust me, this recipe is a keeper.

You’ll wanna sip on this all summer long. I’m warning you now- stock up on chia seeds, lemons, limes, oranges and coconut water. You’ll need a bucket of them to sip on this mocktail until Labor Day.

It’s fantabulouuuussss.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. Hi! This recipe looks amazing and I am super excited to try it! I have a question and was wondering what you thought: I have read that some sweeteners can be hard on the gut to digest and can cause discomfort, especially for those suffering from Celiac or other, similar conditions. What are you thoughts on adding sweeteners to recipes? Are there safe options out there? Thanks!

    1. I have found after using different sweeteners that Truvia is the only one that doesn’t make me feel bad or even bloated. A lot more comes in a single packet and I only have to use one for my coffee and teas instead of 2 or 3 like other sweeteners. I use Truvia in my cooking when it calls for sugar, I use this instead.

      1. Thanks Kristie; but you’re better off using healthier Stevia brands because Truvia is made by Coca Cola and has numerous unhealthy additives in it. Hope that helps! Try Nu Naturals stevia or Frontier Organic Stevia!

  2. Chia seeds, citrus and smoothies, oh my! This looks AMAZING!!! I’m going to get the ingredients ASAP!! 🙂
