My fave green juice that’s actually a “blendy”, I think I just made that word up? Hehe I just mean it’s blended not squeezes though a juicer, hello fibre goodness!! I'm have this baby daily at the moment and absolutely love it!!

Ingredients |

1-2 whole lemons (skin removed),

1 clove of fresh garlic (you could leave out if you’ve got a hot date)

1 tsp tumeric

2cm knob of fresh ginger

1-3 handfuls of spinach

ice and 1L of water

Parsley, is also a fab addition if you’re a hard greenie!!

Method|

1. You’ll wanna blend it till everything is all whizzed, it should be thin like a juice, not thick at all.

2. Pour in a glass/jar or two and pop in a couple of extra ice cubes and enjoy.

Sending you all the love, AL XO

Cinnamon choc cookie smoothie

So the kitchen applience I miss the most is most cerainly my blender, even though it's broken, bloody noisy (I put ear muffs on Cas or take it in the office to use it, not even kidding!) but I LOVE making smoothies, they're my fave any time of the day - morning, pre workout, post workout, lunch, dinner, supper, seriously anytime.  I've always said if Vinny proposed with a Vitamix I'd say yes in heartbeat... he didn't propose with a Vitamix but if he did oh I would have been bloody happy.

 

This is the first smoothie I've made myself in nearly three months and it did not disappoint. Blending the cacao nibs creates a cookies and cream kinda texture, I love it!

Ingredients |

1 small frozen banana

1 server your fave protein, I always go for a plant protein

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 dessert spoon coconut yoghurt, you could also use coconut creme

1 teaspoon cacao nibs

Water and ice

Method |

  1. Pop all ingredients in the blender.  

  2. Blend until smooth, but still thick!

  3. Top with Cacao nibs for extra crunch.

Tip, I always put a little water in my blender first, before the powders, so they don't stick on the bottom or in the blade, then I'll add the other ingredients and top with extra liquid if needed. I like my smoothies thick so I never add too much liquid.

Hope you're having a beautiful day Babes! AL XO
