Alllllrighty. Happy Friday, friends! The weekend has arrived once again. Let’s get down to business and talk black bean soup! The BEST vegan black bean soup to be specific.

I get it. Black bean soup is not exactly a revolutionary recipe. Nothing crazy or super out of the box here. But this one is very good. I wouldn’t call it the best if I didn’t mean it.

Of course that is just my opinion but we’ve been doing this long enough that I think you’ve got some level of trust in me 😉

I’ve been making this soup sort of on the fly for the last handful of years and it never gets old. Always quick, easy, healthy and filling! Basically everything you could ever want from a black bean soup.

And now, I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news.

I would ask you which one you want first, but since we can’t really do that I’m just gonna go good news first.

Good news: you can make the best vegan black bean soup for your people after reading this post!

The bad news: These pictures kind of make me cringe. But I’m hoping you guys have a more forgiving opinion of my photography than I do. Or at least don’t judge the quality of my recipes by the quality of my photographs 😝

What’s UP babes?! How’s your week going? You ready for this yummy healthy gut smoothie that I’ve got for you today?

Like probably all of us, this summer has been crazy busy. And whenever I’m on the go more than I’m not, the first place I always notice some imbalance in my immune system and overall health is in my gut and my digestion. Now that summers come to an end I’m really focusing in on that and doing everything I can to get back to feeling 💯.

Whenever my gut does start to feel a little funky something that helps get me back on track is switching my breakfast to a healthy-fat / probiotic / fiber rich morning smoothie.

If I’m winging it, my smoothie formula goes something like this:

  1. Grab whatever frozen fruit I have on hand, always favoring berries if I’ve got ’em
  2. Throw in some fresh veggies from the crisper drawer – fresh carrots in smoothies are my JAM! If you’ve never tried including them, you have to. Greens always win, too.
  3. A low sugar liquid such as water, coconut water, coconut milk, almond milk or whole leaf aloe vera juice (only the unsweetened variety!) for some extra gut soothing goodness
  4. A chunk of lemon with the peel cut away and/or some ginger for anti-inflammatory YUM
  5. A big scoop of collagen powder to not only support the gut, but also give a little extra boost to connective tissues, hair, nails and skin 👊🏼

But this specific recipe for this specific raspberry mango healthy gut smoothie has been on repeat as of late, and it’s really been hitting the spot, so of course I wanted to share it with youuuu ⚡️

All the iced coffee lovers in the house raise your hands! 🙋🏼 I am that girl that drinks iced coffee all year round. Maybe a little less in the winter than in the summer – but really only because most coffee shops stop making cold brew after Thanksgiving 🙄.

I do ALSO love a steaming hot cup of joe when the timing is right, but if I had to pick one – it would be iced.

How about you guys? Team hot coffee or team iced coffee? I feel like that could be a very polarizing question…

Not looking for a fight… just trying to keep it real babes 😝

I actually photographed this recipe forever ago.

Like probably the beginning of summer. Which is a little embarrassing to say.

But I was making it and sharing it on my Instagram stories and just kept getting all the questions about it – so I thought that’s probably a sign that y’all would love a recipe! But then everything summer happened, my life got stupid crazy, and now here we are tip toeing the line between summer and fall and I’m all – HERE’S THAT ICED COFFEE RECIPE, GUYS!

Oh well, I hope you still love it anyways. Because it’s pretty bomb dot com.
