Today I’m sharing a fabulous new smoothie recipe from one my best friends, Tess Masters (a.k.a The Blender Girl)’s new cookbook called: The Blender Girl Smoothies. Now, you all know I don’t do product or cookbook reviews on my website, but Tess is my exception because she is an amazing friend and her first book, The Blender Girl, which I wrote about and shared a lovely recipe HERE, blew me away because the recipes were so amazing and clean and fresh! So, I decided to write a little something here to share with all of you about her new cookbook that’s filled with 100 smoothies. This book is completely free of gluten and dairy. Plus, it’s vegan (no animal products) and it’s paleo-friendly, too!


This Green Mojito is one of my favorite smoothies in the book. It’s a cold-and-flu buster and potent detoxifier, all in one zesty cocktail (or shall we say mocktail since there is no alcohol in here)! This is one powerful smoothie filled with fresh and flavorful goodness. I like to think of it as pure wellness in a glass. It’s beaming with vitamin C and fiber, which makes it an ideal any-time snack or treat. I like to enjoy my smoothies in the late afternoon as a sweet way to start winding down my day.

Scroll on down and take a sip of this mock-tail mojito to cool yourself off right before the August heat wave sets in. I know you’ll enjoy it as much as I do (I’m guilty of making this smoothie three times last week, hehe). It’s that good!

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 12 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.
