Everything old is new again, and here is some solid proof: You can now get a handy dandy camping-friendly blender (because a weekend without smoothies is no weekend worth having) at Without Walls that is powered by none other than—wait for it—a hand-crank.
We here at Be Well Philly like doughnuts as much as the next person—especially, what with some of us being gluten-free, the GF cinnamon-sugar donuts at Sweet Freedom Bakery. But if you’re looking for a way to celebrate National Doughnut Day that doesn’t involve a stop at Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’, there’s this: a jelly doughnut smoothie.
This so beats a Frappucino. Starting today, Honeygrow is slinging its brand new seasonal concoction: a Mocha Cherry Elixr Smoothie. Warning: The following description will cause you to drool uncontrollably. The vegan smoothie is made with coffee brewed by Rittenhouse’s Elixr Coffee, blended with dark chocolate chips, dried cherries, banana and vanilla. Drooling yet? I thought so.
I have at least one Sip-N-Glo obsessed coworker who will be psyched to hear that the South Street juicery’s bottled juices and smoothies are now available at Di Bruno Bro.’s locations in Rittenhouse and the Franklin. Twitter proof below.
In my house, the blender isn’t just for making summertime margaritas. It’s a kitchen tool I use almost daily year-round to make a nutrition-packed breakfast smoothie or a lighter milkless “milkshake” for dessert.
To keep with the spirit of the season, I decided to hunt down recipes for breakfast and dessert smoothies that capture my favorite holiday flavors: gingerbread, eggnog, candy canes and more. Check them out below, and indulge with me, will you? Happy blending, Be Wellers.
Not that I think I’ll get sick of my ridiculously delicious pumpkin-pie smoothie any time soon, but on the off chance that one day I wake up and think to myself, “Eh, maybe it’s time for a change,” I’d like to be prepared. Which is where this roundup comes in: Here are six other smoothie recipes to try, all featuring in-season fall ingredients. This way, you can celebrate the flavors of the season well into winter. Because Lord knows you’ll be pining for perfect fall weather come December.
