There’s no freakin way this smoothie is healthy…except that it is

You asked for it! Here’s how to make one of my favorite smoothies. It’s a mint chocolate chip one and it’s awesome…especially when you make it while rocking out to a Reba jam by Phish.


This smoothie is not only healthy, but it seriously tastes like mint chocolate chip ice-cream. It’s crazy!!!!

Here’s what’s in it:


1 handful greens (whatever you like…spinach, kale, chard)

1/4 cup pineapple (frozen or fresh)

1/2 avocado

1 capful organic peppermint extract

Milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk)

5 figs or dates

Optional superfoods (I used chia seeds, spiralina and nori seaweed powder)


Place everything in the blender and blend while rocking out. If using a vitamix start at 1 and move to 10 and then set the gear shift to high and it will go out of control. Then pour it into a glass and enjoy it because it’s soooooo good!

Why I Named My Ego Sheila


Does your ego easily get hurt? Does it whine and complain? Does it love to play the victim sometimes? Does it thrive on attention? Does it keep you from shining your light?

I don’t know about you, but my ego is a bitch sometimes.

Don’t worry.  This happens to the most spiritual people. As my friend Cora Poage likes to say, “We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” As humans we have egos whether we like it or not.

Instead of shutting down our egos we need to start embracing them.  Give it a voice. I named my ego Sheila. I tell her,”I know you’re hurt right now, but sometimes it’s not all about you. Don’t take things personally and I love you and your sparkly ways.” I give Sheila a hug and a moment to heal from whatever hurt her because her feelings are real and I let her know I acknowledge them. I let her know she may chill out and relax for a little while as my heart and soul are going to step up and make my decisions right now. Since I acknowledged her and her feelings she totally understands. Sheila is a rock star.

Now I’m free to live a life full of love, happiness and joy that is passionate, purposeful, based on heart centered choices, service, giving and receiving.

This quiets Sheila and keeps her happy.



What’s your ego’s name?
