Magic Mornings Smoothie


As you know if you have been keeping up with us here at PeaceCrafting, we are totally raw and organic superfood manic and love to try new things especially if they are packed with superfoods!

I am slowly getting to know more and more of the named superfoods and my ‘pantry’ cupboard is now starting to look like the shelves in the local health store, expensive but yay!! Can’t put, a price on your children’s health right? I mean once your ethics agree with something you can’t just ignore it can you? If you’re like me you’ll get an icky sensation until you iron out the creases and follow yourself fully (seems to be the answers to all problems but that’s another post ;).

Besides family and nature, food has become my biggest passion over the last couple of years, well since I discovered the poison Aspartame actually and its disgraceful abundance in the public food market. More recently, since following a strictly vegan lifestyle, I have become obsessed with health and exactly what goes into my children. Respect for life and following the word being the main objective.

This is the first official smoothie to be worthy of a post, admittedly I was slightly daunted and put off by smoothies as I ignorantly thought they needed a tonne of fruit which would be a) a serious health problem for me and b) totally out of our budget so I shyed away and just didn’t do any. Recently my health has taken a turn for the worst which is extremely hard for me to accept and amend but I am determined to make the needed changes and sacrifice everything I am used to, surrendering to the will of God. Good thing I do have a fetish for Sauerkraut then.

All jokes aside it is time to switch out the overly sweet breakfasts and get in touch with these magic leaf powders that will actually help to heal me.

Yes this smoothie does contain 2 fruits that are high in fat and probably well over my fructose limit for the day but in my eyes it was a good start, albeit the wrong time of the moon…look out February New Moon your energy is mine! Anyways this little lot made me feel amazing and gave me a magic glow which definitely supressed all hunger until lunch time when the thought of more leaves (Bergamot & Rocket Topped Salad for Lunch) in the form of rocket popped up so yes it was awesome and I felt amazing as I didn’t have 3 breakfasts today! I could really and truly feel the natural high and happiness gifted from this elixir and I am overjoyed I decided to give it a go!

Sound good? Then why not get the taste of what was coming out of my blender this morning…

Trouble with a fussy eating child? Worried at the lack of nutrients? This Organic Moringa Leaf Potato Cake Recipe has the answer!

Organic Moringa Leaf Potato CakeWP_20140803_092[1]

What a hit with the kids these are! Healthy and packed full of organic goodness!
Not quite sure how exactly I ended up making these but I stumbled upon them one evening and my children have been enjoying them ever since.
I consider Potatoes (with skins still on) a good staple ingredient in a healthy diet, wholesome little beauties, rich in carbohydrates and providing a major boost in calories with a totally unique and earthy taste.
Potatoes contain valuable nutrients and much of this can be lost when skins are removed, I feel just giving them a good scrub with a vegetable brush before cooking on a low heat is the best way to ensure optimum nutrients are obtained.
For this simple recipe I used a type of Jersey salad potato but honestly any type or size will suffice.
Also in this recipe Organic Moringa Oleifera Leaf powder is used. We absolutely love this in our house and my eldest child even asks for it (so cute the way he pronounces it!), even at 4 years old he’s aware of its astounding benefits to humans and to this I am truly grateful as it is an excellent way to make sure fussy eaters get an array of different nutrients in one tasty go. I personally make sure I have at least 1 teaspoon in water a day. High in Vitamins A and C this dose will meet the daily recommended intake.
This wonderfully amazing Indian gift of nature really deserves its name “Tree of Life” as it’s an absolute powerhouse for nutrients containing Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12 and C. It also contains Minerals Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium! What a plant right! I’m so happy to have found this amazing powder and I love adding it to everything, bread, soups, smoothies etc. Its great and I recommend everybody should have at least 5grams a day! It’s a real taste of life.
This ‘cake’ is a simple and tasty meal which can be enjoyed hot or cold.

For this recipe you will require:

500g Organic Potatoes
3 x Organic Eggs
3x Tblsp Organic Coconut Butter
A pinch of salt

Cooking Method:

1) Preheat the oven to 350 F and glaze an oven dish / pan with some of the butter
2) Weigh out the potatoes then wash / scrub them thoroughly
3) Dice the potatoes well into small cubes
4) Steam or boil for around 10 – 15 minutes
5) Whisk up the eggs and the salt in a bowl
6) When the time is up mash the potatoes adding the coconut butter
7) Stir in the eggs and salt and mix together well
8) Scoop out the mixture into the oven pan then press and level it
9) Cook for 45mins until golden brown on top
10) Insert a knife around the edge to help it lift away and turn out onto plate.
Cut into quarters and serve. For children I recommend leaving the dish to stand for at least 3minutes before serving.

Enjoy.
