Breakfast Boost Smoothie

Start your day with a GREEN boost!

Banana, Blueberry & Passionfruit Green Smoothie

Ingredients:
  • 250mL coconut water
  • handful baby spinach
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • fruit from one passionfruit
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 tbs coconut cream
  • 2 tsp honey

Blend & Enjoy

Caramel Banana Smoothie

This is one of my personal favourites that really hits the spot! Super creamy and energising. It contains mesquite powder which has a distinct flavour with a hint of caramel. Mesquite powder has a great mineral profile, is high in both calcium and magnesium and contains the amino acid lysine. 10g of mesquite powder will give you 1.6g of protein.
 
Ingredients:
  • 250mL rice or cashew milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp mesquite powder
Blend & Enjoy
 

How to make the Best Cashew Milk

Cashew Milk is absolutely delicious on it's own and is so sweet and creamy. Cashews are excellent for magnesium and copper.
 
Pregnant women take note - increasing magnesium intake is helpful in preventing those terrible leg cramps!
 
 
Ingredients:
  •  1 cup cashews
  • 2 medjool dates
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch Himalayan sea salt
  • optional: cinnamon and nutmeg
 
 
Directions:
 
Soak cashews in a bowl of water for 4 hours. Drain and rinse. Blend with 1 litre of water and remaining ingredients. Strain through a milk bag and serve icy cold.

Gooey Sweet Potato Brownie

This was a hit with all the family and would go perfect with a Chocolate Chiller Green Smoothie.  It's egg free, dairy free, gluten free and you could swap the almonds for sunflower seeds to make nut free if you wish.
 
Sweet potato in a brownie may sound strange but you can't taste it at all. Sweet potatoes are a good source for vitamins B6, C, D and iron and magnesium.
 

Ingredients:
  • about 2 cups mashed sweet potato
  • 14 medjool dates
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 4 tbs cacao
  • 4 tbs maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
 
Directions:
 
Preheat oven to 180°C.
 
Place almonds in food processor and process until finely ground. Add pitted dates and pulse until dates are finely chopped. Add remaining ingredients and process until combined.

Pour into slice tray and bake for about 30 minutes or until cooked in the middle. It will be quite soft even once cooked.

Allow to cool for 15 minutes before slicing. Best served warm but just as good out of the fridge and served with coconut yoghurt.







Chocolate Chiller Green Smoothie

This is a great summer afternoon green smoothie... and it's chocolate!
 

Chocolate Chiller
 
Ingredients:
1/2-1 avocado
Coconut meat (from a young thai coconut)
1-2 tbs cacao powder 
2 tbs Linseeds
2 tbs coconut Sugar
Lots of Ice
 
Blend & Enjoy
 
 
 
* Note: I find the shepherd avocadoes work best in this as they are more creamy and less green tasting
