Easy Fruity Soy Smoothie!!!

I started my Friday morning with this easy fruity soy smoothie. I actually used mango but I called it "Fruity" just because it sounds better, ha...ha..ha!!! :)


By the way, you can use any kind of fruit you prefer. For me, whatever I have in my fridge, it will do!

In blender, combine about a cup and a half of vanilla soy milk, 1/2 cup of mango chunks, 1/2 avocado, 2 Tbsp of agave syrup, and 1/2 cup of ice (if desired). Blend together until smooth and creamyyyyyy. Mmmmm!



What a perfect breakfast!!!


I loved my mango smoothie so much so I made another one for lunch, this time I used about 5 dates instead of agave syrup because I love dates and I have a LOT of them (3 lbs for $5.99 at Costco).
This amazing CLEAN book by Dr. Alejandro Junger is the reason why I'm craving smoothie. I bought this book at Magpie a couple weeks ago because I'm interested in the clean program. Before I finished reading it, I couldn't wait to have a peek at the clean recipes in the last chapter of the book. I found easy and healthy recipes especially for smoothies. I really wanted to make green smoothie from his recipe but I didn't have kale or Swiss chard today so I have to wait until my next grocery shopping trip.


Who is Magpie???
Magpie is a lovely gift shop, located in downtown Manhattan Beach where I have enjoyed working for over 10 years. Magpie will have a website very soon, so if you are interested in getting news from Magpie, you can send your email address to magpiecollection@verizon.net.

Last but not least, I have good news from Magpie for anyone who was born in September and October that you can enjoy 20% off your purchases during one visit at Magpie by the end of November'09 (Furniture & sale items excluded). Simply show us proof of your birth date.


Have a lovely weekend, everyone! :)

  1. What a GREAT deal on the dates! I've been using them a lot lately, but strangely I don't like them plain! They are perfect mixed in, though!

  3. Oh! I love smoothies! I made a smoothie the past two days but didn't take a pic of them because I drank them all up! :) I used strawberries, pear and banana with dates. Green smoothies are great. Can't wait to see what yours will contain. :)

    Rose,
    Believe it or not avocado is one of the ingredients of green smoothie from CLEAN book.
    I love working at Magpie, I always think of you every time I see pretty things in there. Thank YOU, Rose! :)

    Mary,
    Thank you so much! To be honest with you, I'm NOT a big fan of Costco, I just shop there once in a while mostly for gas, rice, detergent or good deal stuff like those dates! :)
