Why talk about ice-cold, frosty smoothies in November? Well, cause they’re just Berrylicious!
Emily Von Euw’s newest book,
is just what you need this winter to keep your taste buds and your waistline happy through the cold days ahead. She’s sharing her recipe for a delicious, creamy blueberry filled smoothie with us today plus a chance to win a copy of her new book for yourself.
First the smoothie:
Fortunately for all of us, perfect little blueberries in smoothies are great frozen or fresh. No reason at all why you can’t keep up the nutritional benefits of these deep blue antioxidant gems all year round. Wintertime stresses on our bodies just cry out for the goodness of berries where ever and when ever.
Emily’s got you covered on that one with her ‘Blueberrylicious’ smoothie from the book.
This delectable smoothie is quick and easy, yes. Full of fabulous nutrition, yes. But why not make it the hit of your Holiday party as well? Smoothie bowls are all the rage these days and I say, instead of serving that big bowl of processed sugar filled punch at your event, make it something they’ll all remember by fixing up some of these beautiful bowls for your guests.
Serve them a vegan treat worth every delicious spoonful that won’t leave them wondering how many extra miles on the treadmill will this cost me?

WOW. This book will take you there and back again in the blended healthy foods world. It has all the facts and figures but more importantly, it has a little bit of Emily’s heartfelt passion for eating and living the best way possible. I’ve had a chance this past year to get a lot more in tune with how Emily lives her life and how creative her ideas can be. She just returned last week in fact from a worlwin trip to Israel to explore all the Vegan aspects of their society today. Can’t wait to hear the details of her trip. From the few pics we got each day of her adventures, it should be a blast learning how the Israeli people are turning toward a cruelty-free lifestyle.
Emily has also moved into the YouTube production world this year. I just love how honest and informative her videos are. Be sure to check them out. She’s just posted a new one this week. Emily was also part of the Canned Time ‘Breakfast-In-Bed-Fest’ event. She created another luscious smoothie for her post in October. Check that out as well as her blog

1 cup Frozen Blueberries
6 Pitted Dates
