I’ve always been a good eater, interested in different flavors, and a lover of food. In high school I loved making my family dinner, especially stir fry! Things are still relatively the same. Stir fry is my JAYUM and I’ll pretty much cook for anyone. One of the best parts about growing up, is watching my love for food become even more intense.
I didn’t think I could be so in love with an inanimate object 😛
I know I’ve been a food lover since the whomb, but never in a million years did I think I’d be drinking avocado based smoothies! One because avocados are vegetables, right? (jk they are fruit) and two because avocados are full of fat.
That’s right. I use to be one of “those.” A fraidy f(c)at!
I wanted to make a green smoothie that had some personality. IE: wasn’t actually made with “greens” but other ingredients to make it green!
Insert: AVOCADO + MINT.
This guys is made with a banana base to give some sweetness along with a few juicy dates.
It’s whipped up with a big glerg of almond milk to smooth things out.
Options as always to use another form of milk or even water. If you’re getting fancy, you can even add in some protein powder for the win!

- 1/2 avocado
- 3 dates, pitted

Remember when Davida was in town a few weeks ago? We were working on a HUGE project for SHEuncovered and Aura Cacia. We did some freelance work for their team and their #MyPositiveChange campaign that launches June 1st! This campaign is all about making small changes to make your life and world around you a better place. Now this is my kind of challenge!
We got to develop 3 DIY All Natural Projects and shoot lots of fun footage of the weekend. Our first post went up today. If you’ve never made your own dish soap before..it’s super simple! The addition of lavender essential oil is delicious in it, too!
Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be participating in Aura Cacia’s #MyPositiveChange campaign. Follow along on Instagram, and if you participate, don’t forget to use the hashtag because they’re giving away TONS OF SWAG. #heckyes
