#JumpstartJanuary Detox Smoothie

So you’d think it was a little cold for smoothies right…

This is a video of people ice skating on the ROADS in Fredericton this Saturday (click for link):

We went to brunch around 11:30 and the freezing rain was just starting. We came out around 1:00 and the roads and sidewalks were sheets of ice. I’ve never seen anything like it! We could barely get up the driveway without sliding back down. Our vehicles were coated in ice and some sections of the highway were even closed. I knew the forecast called for freezing rain but I never expected it to have that much of an effect that quickly.

One bonus to the crappy weather? Our friends got storm stayed and we had a second night of games & food!

Games and Dip

If you’ve lived on the East Coast (especially near Halifax) or if you’ve ever had a donair, you will appreciate this: The Hot Donair Dip (aka HaliDip). I veganized the recipe using some simple substitutions and it was killer… I might have to blog about it in the future with Heather‘s approval 😉

Jenna and I escaped the freezing cold for some Hot Moksha Yoga – today marks day 11/30 of my 30 day yoga challenge! And regardless of the winter weather, I made yummy smoothies all weekend 😉

The January edition of Smoothie of the Month is inspired by the Juice Master’s  Super Detox Smoothie from the 3-Day Detox. I couldn’t think of a something more fitting for the month where 97% of the population is trying to start a new year off on a healthy foot.

The name, of course, is inspired by the #JumpstartJanuary challenge that Georgia and I are totally owning right now! Keep up with her progress here and check out her gorgeous new blog design.

The original recipe uses fresh juiced pineapple but since most people don’t own a juicer, I decided to create a smoothie that uses whole pineapple and a little additional liquid to thin it out.

For those of you who aren’t fans of bananas in your smoothies, this one is for you! Finally…. sorry, I kind of LOVE bananas!
