Smoothie with spinach, 1 frozen banana, frozen cranberries, chia seeds, and cranberry kombucha. I liked it a lot because it was less sweet than other smoothies I make.

Gorgeous and delicious fresh fruit salad. Ataulfo mango, blueberries, banana. Straight up. Sometimes I add flax meal or coconut to a meal like this, sometimes powdered ginger or cinnamon, occasionally a squeeze of lemon - but it's always good.

Spinach, blueberries, 1/2 vega packet (natural flavor), frozen banana, parsley, lemon juice. The parsley was just slightly noticeable. I added it for an extra green kick - and for the incredible amount of Vitamin K!
Yep, those are my fruity, raw breakfasts of late. I like to get most of my servings of fruit in early in the morning so as to not interfere with digestion later, and so that I don't really have to worry about getting in the fruit servings throughout the day.


  1. Yay for a breakfast post! I love breakfasts and yours look great, especially that fruit salad! That look so colorful and fresh and delicious!! The first smoothie sounds interesting too! I bet the added kombucha added and interesting twist! I still need to try cranberries in my smoothies! Beautiful green smoothie!

  2. I think tomorrow I'll have your fruit salad on top of oatmeal with a sprinkle of hemp hearts. Yeah.

  3. Love! I've not thought out adding Kombucha to my smoothies - although I am going to try it with coffee this week. The flecks of color from the cranberries and blueberries are the best part! Fruit bowls will soon be a staple breakfast in my house. I had a bad smoothie with parsley once, but I think it was due to the quantity. . .

  4. oooh a kombucha smoothie!! how creative! and i love that you put cranberries in it! they're such an underutilized fruit! haha...thanks for sharing! have a great week!

  5. Thanks, VAVA, I don't often make kombucha smoothies because I buy the kombucha rather than make it, and I always kind of feel like I'm wasting it by mixing it with other stuff instead of drinking it on its own, but it's a nice, subtle addition.

    Andrea, that sounds awesome! I have hemp seeds too - I ought to try that. We can have twin breakfasts!

    Ingrid, I love coffee in smoothies! Well, depending on the flavor I guess. I feel like it gives a super rush - of both green vibrancy and the caffeine, of course. Can't wait to see what you do. Yeah, the parsley can be hit or miss but the Vega packet did a good job of mostly covering it up.

    GFHT, yes, agreed! Cranberries are so healthy and really distinct-tasting but not used to the best of their abilities. I'm guilty of it myself - these were a frozen bag from Thanksgiving!

  6. That fruit salad is such a great combo! I've really been enjoying blueberries lately.

    Love the gorgeous green color of the second smoothie. So, so pretty!

  7. Definitely breakfasts one would aspire to.

  8. molly, thanks, I thought the bright green was very pretty too, especially with the flecks of blueberry!

    Shen, I wouldn't kick yr raspberry danish out of bed either.

  9. I love vega! What type of blender do you use?

  10. Fruit salad looks delish. :)

  11. BYOL, It's just an old Proctor-Silex from K-mart!

    Angel, thank you :) It was!
