Tiffany from Don’t Waste the Crumbs shares a delicious green thickie recipe made with real food and easy to find ingredients. My favourite type! Tiffany always captures my interest with her blog posts as she constantly seems to be answering my questions on how to incorporate more real food into my diet.
Before I jump into a glass full of seasonal deliciousness that will make you think you’re drinking dessert for breakfast, I’d like to first graciously thank Katherine for hosting me. Babies are truly an incredible blessing and I’m honored to be here for the day while she enjoys precious time with her new arrival!
My grandparents used to take me camping when I was a kid. One of my favorite parts about the trips was the small ice cream shop on the campgrounds. Since there are very little rules when the grandparents are in charge, and even fewer when you’re on a camping trip, to say we ate a lot of ice cream is an understatement.
In all those years, my order never changed. Two scoops of orange dreamsicle on a waffle cone, please. You can imagine my surprise when I blended a smoothie 20+ years later that tasted very similar to that ice cream!

My accidental discovery began with a purpose – to only use fresh ingredients that were in season. Sure it’s easy to toss your preferred frozen fruit in the blender, but seasonal produce is so much better! For starters, it tastes better! Strawberries are ripe for picking and are as sweet as can be. Can you say the same for ones in the store six months ago (if there even was some in the store).
Seasonal produce is also more affordable than fruits and vegetables shipped from miles away. Quality fruits and vegetables take up a large portion of our meager grocery budget, but this smoothie recipe costs less than $1 per serving – how often can you say that you’re getting more than half of your daily dose of fruits and vegetables for less than a buck?
To top it off, the nutrients in seasonal produce are much higher than their out-of-season counterparts, allowing us to really get the most bang for our buck and our bodies!
So we have a smoothie that tastes like ice cream AND is extremely affordable? What’s not to love?!Print

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
