  32. My favourite smoothie is a green monster.

    In regard to your question about the cookie … it was very similar to Levain’s. To be honest, I can’t remember much about the Levain cookie, just that it was gooey in the middle and I really, really liked it, but could only eat half because it was a little sweet for me. The Levain-like cookie was the same way. It was super good! I would make it even bigger next time to get more of the raw gooyiness in the middle :-)

    • to get more of the raw gooyiness in the middle = that’s what I’m all about.

      The NYTimes Choc Chip cookie recipe that’s really popular the past year or so on blogs, it calls for HUGE cookies. That’s how I think they stay softer in the middle, the sheer size/surface area/cooking time, along with good dough of course.

  33. bananas & almond milk!

  34. I follow you on facebook!

  35. My two must-have smoothie ingredients are frozen bananas (I throw them in the freezer when they are on the verge of being over-ripe) and ice, I love thick icy smoothies and the more ice the better!

  36. My favorite smoothie is: berries + avocado + rice protein powder (or greek yogurt) + almond milk or coconut water (+ a handful of spinach/greens when I want to turn it into a green goodness!). The berries make it sweet and delicious and the avocado makes it as creamy as could be, pure love!!!
    And my 2 favorite ingredients to add in my smoothies is definitely berries and avocados, best duo ever! :-)

  37. Spinach/kale and strawberries/raspberries/blueberries – all of them are must-haves in some fashion or another. :-)

  38. I already like LV&Y on facebook!!

  39. I already follow you on twitter and twitted the giveaway!

  40. One of the best investments I have ever made was buying a Vitamix blender. It is a life-changing appliance! Fruits, veggies, you can blend anything! Fruit smoothies are the best way to wake up in the morning.

  41. Love to drink green smoothies myself and I’d love to win the ebook! I enjoy a large handful of spinach, unsweetened almond milk, blueberries, ice, and protein powder. It’s my delicious, regular breakfast.

  42. Spinach + avocado + mango & pineapple – YUM!
