The Spicy Friday Smoothie

WP_20150522_074[1]

Lately, I’ve been changing things up to see how it effects me.
Tonight I enjoyed an organic smoothie for dinner! This is a great recipe if you like a thick and creamy smoothie and if you love to spice things up a little 🙂

Ingredients:

1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 tsp of each of the seeds below:
Shelled Hemp
Chia
Dessicated Coconut

1 tsp of each of the powders below:
Moringa Leaf
Mulberry Leaf
Boabab

2 stalks full of Kohl Rabi leaves
7 Blueberries

250ml Almond & Coconut Milk
50ml Cold Saffron Tea

Method:

Wash, chop and then steam the Khol Rabi for 1-3 minutes.
Add all ingredients apart from the Tea into a high speed blender.
Blend very well for approximately 2 minutes, you may need to give the blender a rest after 2 minutes, check the smoothie and then re-blend.
Fill a glass up and consume.
After that, add 50ml saffron tea and shake the blender jug making a lighter, very tasty and very frugal second drink.
I always love to do this after making my smoothies as it makes the most of the ingredients used and can be stored in the fridge for later too.

I really hope you love this creamy smoothie, morning, noon or night, as much as I did!

Enjoy!

Vegan Breakfast Minis

WP_20150428_002[1]

 

This is an absolutely adorable breakfast and after much fuss was an absolute hit with the kids!

It was rather early in the morning and it was an impulsive breakfast idea so the quantities aren’t very professional here but you get the idea 🙂 I know it looks like a lot of fruit but eaten with the peanut butter will slow down the release of fructose into the system so no hyper go go kiddies after this one!

To make these wonderful breakfast minis:

Ingredients:

Approx 1x tsp  CAROB
Approx 1x tsp MORINGA LEAF POWDER
Approx 3 tbsp PEANUT BUTTER
4x BANANAS
SMALL BUNCH OF GRAPES
A DASH OF WATER (you could use a cold herbal tea or a nut milk)

A SQUEEZE OF LEMON

HUNGRY BUBS!

 

Method:

In a bowl mix together thoroughly the peanut butter and the powders, adding tiny amounts of water at a time if it is too stodgy you want the consistency of dough.
Slice the banana into disks, try and make them as even as possible.
Wash the grapes and then slice them into either eights, quarters or halves depending on the size of them. You want them to be smaller than the banana.
Roll the dough mixture into little balls and top each banana.
Add the grape pieces to the tops.
Bless with love and serve!

Hopefully your children will love them as much as mine did.

If you have any left over, to stop the bananas from browning spritz a little fresh lemon juice over them (it really works!)  and pop them in the fridge for later, they are yummy cold too!

Please feel free to link to this recipe if you try it, I would love to hear what your kids thought and maybe see some pics?

Have a fabulously delicious day. Peace.
