Tropical "fruit Bowl" Shake

"I didn't really think this combination would work, but I wanted to use up some excess fruits and surprise! They went together quite well. You'll want a straw for this one."

    This was very good, though I did find the kiwi to be a little overpowering. I used freshly squeezed oj and added a little extra water. I also added a little ice. The fruit was very sweet so no extra sugar was needed.

    Love, Love all these fruit flavor combo's. Have to be honest with you Amber....never had mango in a smoothie b/f. Actually have only eaten one in my entire life. Can you believe it?? Not a fruit I generally buy. It was awesome in this flavor of other fruits. I also added a bit of your flax/cinnamon/brownsugar combination to the batch. Just to sweeten it a bit. My bananas were frozen and I also added about 3 ice cubes. Was a little to thick and so added a bit more o.j. Fabulous. Hit the spot after a morning workout. Glad I tagged!!! Made for April's Bevvy Tag- 08'

    very very good! Next time I will freeze the fruit to get it even colder. It's ideal to drink it after a good exercise session on a hot summer evening. A bit pitty it's quite high in calories and sugar :)

    A very tasty "shake"! After tasting it, I decided to add a little ice since all my fruit was at room temperature. That did change the texture a bit, but it was still yummy. To my suprise the fruit was plenty sweet so no sweetener needed! Great Creation White Rose Child!


A teenager who loves to cook- weird or what? But yes, it's one of my passions! To me cooking is like an art form- there's always something new and exciting to try, and there are constantly more ideas running around in my head than I know what to do with. Now, to update this page- a little task I haven't done in about two years!! Much remains the same as when I joined what seems like "forever ago": I'm a vegan with many passions: music, yoga, volunteer work, healthy/tasty food (the healthy vs. the tasty seem to run in cycles, haha) - and perhaps most of all, I love the written world. My dearest happy moments are when I am reading, writing, and feeling inspired. I'm in my first year studying at Mount Allison university for a B.A., major in English. However, since this is RecipeZaar, I must note that I'm equally obsessive about food!! Six years have passed since I was twelve and sort-of accidentally converted my family to veganism. Yes, even dad and little bro now greedily dig into their tofu shepherd pie and soy ice cream (well, clearly, one AFTER the other). I'm always on the lookout for foods that will please, and maybe even be healthy for, all of us! Now that I'm in uni and living with my aunt, uncle and cousin in New Brunswick, I still try to help with the cooking a bit. My sweetie cousin, Bilious Pigeon here on Zaar, is a terrific kitchen buddy. We share a penchant for fine coffee. Thankfully, my family here has turned mostly to the vegan side and that makes university life sooo much easier! My posted recipes, those I haven't invented, might come from Vegnews magazine, another website, one of our awesome vegan cookbooks, or friends- but it's virtually guaranteed that I've modified them at least in some way, and if from a book or show, I always acknowledge the original source. After all, I'd want someone to do the same for me. Since returning to the public education system after eight years of homeschooling, I don't have quite as much time in the kitchen as I used to. But I don't let that stifle my creativity! One of my favorite activities is in the summer when I get together with another cousin ~Harriet~, who's also here on Zaar, and we cook as much as we want. Good times! One more thing about me. I'm a Zaar game addict. And proud of it, and I'd advise anyone to join who would like more reviews on their own recipes, not to mention spending time with fun people and trying recipes they might not find otherwise. Please Zmail me with any questions or just to chat. Hope you enjoy, and are inspired by, my ideas! <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="¤t=chefkoalas.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="tag"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=>
