Strix’s Raw “Orange Julius”

2 large juicy oranges, peeled and seeded ( use the white part surrounding the orange — it’s good! Adds creaminess)…


Watermelon-Mango Smoothie

1 ripe mango, cubed
2 cups cubed seedless watermelon


Strawberry Smoothies

1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen bananas …


Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie

1 ripe banana
1 cup vanilla soy milk …


Ridgerunner’s Blended Spinach Salad

I started off just adding spinach to the carrot citris cocktail we all love, but gradually started adding more fruits. The secret is to have lots of sweet and fluidy fruits to overwhelm the subtle flavor of spinach. You CANNOT taste the spinach – I guarantee it!


Hot Spiced Pineapple Tea

I have some red and green mugs that are nice for serving this hot, fruity tea. Garnish with cinnamon sticks.


Hot Mulled Cider

2 quarts unsweetened apple cider
1 cup pineapple juice…


Hot Holiday Apple Punch

Recipe from Veggies Unite: A Vegetarian Thanksgiving email newsletter: Recipe from Karyl


Fruit and Tofu Shooters

1/2 pineapple, peeled and chopped
1 banana, peeled and sliced …


Carrot Citrus Cocktail

Blend all of the above in vitamix, first quickly turning from speed 1 to 10, and then flip to high speed for 1 minute. You could try this in a blender if you don’t have a vitamix.



Mix all ingredients well. I used a plastic container, with top, and shake like a palm tree during Hurricane Andrew. This drink is wonderful cold, but served steaming hot, it’s pure heaven.


Bryanna’s Vegan Eggnog

This is from my book “Soyfoods Cooking for a Positive Menopause”.


“Milk” Shake

Blend together in a good blender and enjoy! (you might need to add more liquid if your blender has trouble blending.)


Purple Mango

Puree in blender until frothy.


Pineapple Crush

Blend together until frothy.

    • Upside Down Oatmeal Sundae (and Getting My Goat)
      September was a bit of a bumpy month for me–literally. About 3 weeks ago, walking full speed and barefoot, I ran my left little toe smack into one of the hardwood claw feet on my couch. The impact separated it from the rest of my toes, and instantly I knew I was in very painful […]
