Top Ten Vegan Smoothie Recipes

February 28, 2015

Now that the summer heat has started to kick in there is nothing better to battle the temperature than an ice cold vegan smoothie.  To be honest making a vegan smoothie is not a difficult task. Simply pick your favourite fruits, try and have something like an apple or a banana to thicken it, then place it in a blender or preferably a smoothie maker and you are done.

For my top ten vegan smoothie recipes I will be bringing you the best vegan smoothie recipes that I have found, from the fruity to the greenest of the green!

For each of these fruit recipes all you have to do is stick the ingredients in the blender, and let it rip!

When you are making vegetable smoothies you should always add the fruits first, then the watery greens, and then the vegetables for the perfect vegan smoothie!

You can also add things like raw sugar, ice, or other vegetables/fruits to get the exact vegan smoothie recipe you are looking for!

My only advice for any vegan smoothie recipe is to make sure that for every sour ingredient such as Kale, you include a sweetener to balance it out!

Patacones – a Delicious Vegan Treat

February 28, 2015
Serves 8 Patacones
Equipment
Pan
Stove
Prep time
5m
Cook Time

We visited Panama last week and had an amazing time, but one thing that really caught our attention was the patacones, double fried unripe plantains that are a favorite snack and side in Central America and the Caribbean.

The best part about this is that Patacones are incredibly easy to make, so easy that I even hesitate to call this a ‘recipe’.

You will generally get four patacones from each plantain, so when you are making these, use this as a guide for how many unripe plantains you need. By unripe plantain, you are looking for plantains that are still green.

They key to creating your own perfect patacones is experimentation.  People cook these very much to taste, so the thickness of the plantain chunks and the length of the first and second fry can have a  huge effect on the crispness, the chunkiness and the flavor.
