blueberry breakfast smoothie

Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie

Happy 2024! Health experts have been saying it for years, but of all the fruits out there, you should seek ways to incorporate more blueberries into your diet. Blueberries are sweet, low in calories, nutritious, and incredibly popular. Blueberries are the most nutrient-dense of all berries. Just 1 cup of blueberries contains 4 grams of […]

matcha smoothie bowl

Dairy-Free Tropical Matcha Smoothie Bowl

This matcha smoothie bowl is the recipe you should be making all summer long on repeat. The tropical flavors of pineapple and banana blended with almond milk and matcha ignite feelings of relaxation and good health. What is Matcha? In Japanese, the word “Matcha” is the combination of “ma“, meaning rubbed or ground,  and “cha“, […]

blueberry papaya smoothie bowl

Blueberry Papaya Smoothie Bowl

I remember when smoothie bowls became a thing. And I’ll admit it, I didn’t fully get them at first, but now I do. Smoothie bowls are often confused with açaí bowls, but they are not the same, in fact, they are completely different in origin. And to clarify, traditional smoothies, made of pureed fruit mixtures […]

peaches and cream smoothie

Peaches And Cream Smoothie

It sure feels like summer takes forever to arrive. The tease of spring can be overwhelming. But then, one day, before you know it, it’s in full force. The sun is bright, the trees lush and the air is warm and encompassing. For me, summer brings a sense of calmness. Life is slower, easier, and […]

cold brew smoothie

Cold Brew Smoothie

The pandemic has led to many new habits, both good and bad. I walk a fraction of what I used to walk, but I get more accomplished. I rarely drive, but I’m saving a ton on gas and I definitely drink more wine and coffee. Those two last ones are the more questionable ones, but […]

raspberry smoothie bowl

Raspberry Smoothie Bowl

Valentine’s Day is incredibly popular in the United States. But most don’t realize it is also a popular day of celebration in Britain, Canada, Australia, Argentina, France, Mexico, and South Korea. In the Philippines, it is the most common wedding anniversary, and mass weddings of hundreds of couples are not uncommon on that date. I […]

chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie

Jamba’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

This smoothie is not healthful, but it is a tasty one. This was a special request from my oldest son. This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie is a copycat recipe of the Jamba Juice one my son has loved for years. I talk about my boys challenging me to cook things all the time. Often random, […]

tropical pineapple smoothie

Tropical Pineapple Smoothie

The wait for summer sometimes seems endless. It’s funny, I remember feeling that way as a kid, but I guess some things never change. Summer not only means warmer weather, it means longer days, more laid-back attitudes, and for me (and many parents out there), a temporary respite from making school lunches. Summer also brings […]

pineapple-peach turmeric smoothie

Dairy-Free Pineapple-Peach Turmeric Smoothie

Day 5 of my smoothie week concludes with another easy, tropical-inspired dairy-free smoothie packed with nutrients to keep you energized throughout the day (or weekend). This is my pineapple-peach turmeric smoothie, and it is delicious. I can’t say this is my favorite of the 5 smoothies I’ve posted this week, but I may be slightly partial […]

cranberry-orange creamsicle smoothie

Cranberry-Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

Smoothie Week recipe #4: a cranberry-orange creamsicle smoothie that’s completely addictive. Ever had a creamsicle as a kid? If you were a fan like I was, you are in for a treat with this cranberry-orange creamsicle smoothie that hits the nail on the head in the nostalgia department. In developing this recipe, I just had […]

blueberry-mango antioxidant smoothie

Blueberry-Mango Antioxidant Smoothie

Day 3, meet my blueberry-mango antioxidant smoothie. This is a more classic fruit smoothie packed with antioxidants. We already know the power of the mighty blueberry, but the addition of mango and coconut milk takes this fruit smoothie to a new level. With a subtle tropical essence, this fruit-forward smoothie is a great go-to any […]

pear-oat almond smoothie

Pear-Oat Almond Smoothie

For my 2nd post of Smoothie Week, I developed this tasty and satisfying Fall-focused, pear-oat almond smoothie. Even though it is not quite Fall, I am a bit obsessed with this smoothie right now. This is a great, go-to breakfast smoothie that is smooth, filling, and loaded with nutritional value. No time for a hot […]

green detox smoothie

Mild Green Detox Smoothie

The end of Summer is approaching, Fall is almost here, and back-to-school time is at hand for many families. After a long summer filled with indulgences, it’s to get “back on track“.  With that in mind, I am declaring this week “Smoothie Week” on Simmer + Sauce. This week, I’ll be posting a new easy, […]

energy boost smoothie

Changemaker Series: Second Harvest Food Bank And Their Energy Boost Smoothie

Changemaker Series: Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. As a chef, food blogger, and mom, food is important to me. Food is something we all need, and for many of us, good food is readily available. But this is not the case for everyone, even in an area like Silicon Valley. […]
