Happy Friday folks! What are your weekend plans? We will be hiking & playing outside a whole bunch.

We will also be serving up lots of healthy & cleansing eats. It’s the time of year for all kinds of spring cleaning…from organizing the home to getting the body bikini ready! I recently received The Blender Girl cookbook by Tess Masters. Featured here is her Papaya Pleasure Smoothie….and a quick thumb through her wonderful cookbook!

I have been a fan of The Blender Girl blog for quite a few years now & it’s a healthy favorite!

I’m so proud of Tess and all of her great success. I met her a few years ago in Santa Monica, CA at a TECHmunch conference I was speaking at. She is filled with life, joy and a great sense of humor. Her book captures her love for life & food (and the blender!)

Tess blends up all kinds of plant based recipes that are versatile, gluten free, vegan & mouth watering.

There are 100 whole food recipes in the book…that are all prepared in your blender. She also offers readers “cheat sheets” with nutrient guides, nut-milk guidance, superfood info & sprouting charts.

Her blender based recipes include snacks, salads, soups, appetizers & natural sweetener based desserts. There are quite a few ingredients in each recipe, but easy to swap things in & out…easily adaptable to items you might have on hand.

A few recipes that caught my eye…

  • Awesome Almond Crackers
  • Berry Seed But Cultured Breakfast
  • “Key Lime” Pudding
  • Raw Chocolate-Orange Tart
  • Sparkling Black & Blue
  • Sugar-Free No-Pumpkin Pie
  • & many, many more!

I love papaya, and this smoothie looks delicious! Maybe it’s because we share the same name, but Tess looks like she knows what she’s doing. I will have to check out her cookbook!
