Green Smoothie

This morning I woke up and realised just how much I was craving a Green Smoothie
SO i honestly insist that I share the recipe with you:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups leafy greens
  • 1-1 and 1/4 cup nut milk or coconut water
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp psyllium husk (fibre baby)
  • 1/4 cup crushed ice

Method

  • Blend it all together
  • ENJOY 🙂
  • Wash up all the dishes

TIP: I like to use Kale more than I do spinach, purely for the taste. If you’re using kale, not only be sure to wash the leaves, but also remove the stems (as they taste incredibly bitter!)

Coconut Mocktail

Each day, I hear the “BZZZZZ” sound from my Soda Stream as my parents attend to their morning fizzy water & lemon.

So yesterday, I was craving some sort of delicious tropical drink! And an instant idea came to mind…

Fizzy Coconut Milk!


Ingredients

  • 1-2 cups coconut milk
  • 1-2 cups coconut water (this is optional – I just love the taste of the two coconut liquids mixed together)
  • 1 tsp stevia (also optional)
  • 1/2 cup berries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup mango, frozen

Method 

  1. Combine the liquid and pour into a Soda Stream bottle
  2. Blitz the liquid for the recommended time (until you hear that finishing BZZZZZ from the machine)
  3. In a blender, mix together the berries and mango until an icey mixture is formed
  4. Mix the stevia if you are using it in with the liquid
  5. Pour into glasses, adding a dollop of the frozen fruity blend into the glass!
  6. Also optional: if it’s a weekend and you fancy maybe an alcoholic beverage, adding a shot of this would be divine (however, only for special occasions ha!)

Turmeric Latte

Oh baby it’s cold outside.

Turmeric; a powerful anti-inflammatory spice.


So, it’s a Friday afternoon, and I’m in need of a pick-me-up 

 

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1 cup unsweetened nut milk or coconut milk (I used half and half of each)
  • 1 heaped tablespoon fresh turmeric root, grated (or use 2 teaspoons tumeric paste – see note*)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (or 1-inch cinnamon stick)
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root (or 1 tsp ground)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Raw honey, Rice Malt Syrup or Stevia to taste

 

 

Method

 

  1. To make the turmeric paste, combine 2 parts tumeric powder with 1 part boiling water (I used 2 tablespoons turmeric powder and 1 tablespoon water, storing the extra in the fridge for about a week!)
  2. Gently warm the milk in a small saucepan, but please don’t boil!
  3. Add the tumeric, ginger and cinnamon
  4. Add the coconut oil, and allow to heat together until melted
  5. Use a whisk or fork to create a foam, stirring until somewhat frothy and heated through
  6. Stir in sweetner to taste

Enjoy!
