    • 1 c. vanilla Greek yogurt
    • 1/2 c. frozen blueberries
    • juice of 1 lemon

  • Blueberry Pineapple Smoothie

    Ingredients:

    • 1/2 c. honey Greek yogurt
    • 1/2 c. frozen blueberries
    • 1 c. canned pineapple, chopped
    • 2 tbsp. sugar
    • 1/2 c. ice cubes

  • Mango Cherry Smoothie

    Ingredients:

    • 1/2 c. honey Greek yogurt
    • 1 mango, peeled
    • 8 cherries, seeds and stems removed
    • 1/4 c. orange juice
    • 1/2 c. sugar

  • Strawberry Mango Smoothie

    Ingredients:

    • 1 c. honey Greek yogurt
    • 1 c. frozen strawberries
    • 1 mango
    • 1/2 c. sugar

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients into the blender and cover.
  2. Activate the blender. If you have frozen ingredients that are not cooperating, use the pulse function and a little finesse to pulse your way into the perfect mixture.
  3. Taste your smoothie and adjust. Is there too much strawberry? Is there not enough pineapple? Is the smoothie too tart because you used Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt? Adjust the flavors just like you would do anything else.
  4. Serve in a glass, preferably with a straw. Garnish if desired.

This recipe is an Americanized version of the classic Mediterranean side dish, substituting couscous for the wheat, but it still maintains its texture, palate-cleansing effects, and pop of freshness.

By Chef Ryan Callahan
Beans are rich in protein and iron, making falafel an excellent substitute for meat. Done correctly, falafel is dense and heavily spiced. Try this recipe for a savory and aromatic treat!

Hummus
By Chef Ryan Callahan
Due to its high protein content, the chickpea is a main food staple in the Mediterranean and Middle East. This recipe is fairly authentic, and although it is simple to make, it is difficult to master.
