Blackberry Jam and Cream Smoothie

20140604-051427 PM-62067620.jpg

Even though it is winter, I still need my frozen fruit meals. This reminds me of my childhood.
For the base:
Blend 1 cup of frozen blackberries
1 ripe banana
200 mls of filtered water

For the top:
Blend 1 ripe banana
1-2 frozen bananas
1 vanilla pod
1 tablespoon of cacao nibs

Pour blackberry jam into a suitable vessel and place a huge dollop of banana cream on top.  Stick your spoon in and push your ice cream top down into your jam. Revisit your childhood 😀

I wasn’t sure how this would turn out but I was pretty pleased with the result.

Another super simple smoothie. Sweet and easy to digest.

Blend
1 cup of frozen raspberries
4 bananas (2 of them frozen)
The juice of 1 small beetroot.

Enjoy 🙂

Dessert for every meal

Dessert for every meal

One of the best things about eating this way is being able to eat dessert for breakfast (lunch and dinner) and knowing it’s good for you.

To make this delicious chocolate sauce you will need:
5-6 medjool dates
1 vanilla pod
1 heaped tablespoon of cacao powder (or carob)
1 teaspoon of Acai berry powder
1/2 cup of filtered water.
Blend until smooth

In a mason jar, spoon in your banana ice-cream (made from 1 banana and 4 frozen bananas) and layer it with sauce.

Simply delicious 🙂

His n Her Smoothies

My husband is currently doing a bit of a raw challenge which is great, but it does mean extra work for me as well as coming up variations on smoothies and other meals. I’m happy with really simple food but he likes a lot more fat and chunkier food.  This smoothie was pretty popular on the day.

Blend

Bananas, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, acai berry powder, maqui berry powder, and chia seed gel in coconut water.

I topped his off with homemade organic peanut and coconut oil butter (but you could use any nut butter) and cacao nibs.

And to keep mine low fat, I topped it with berries and kiwi fruit 🙂

Mango Spag: His and Hers.

I got the idea for this dish from my amazing friend Freelee, you can find her over at http://www.thebananagirl.com

Dinner for 2 this evening consisted of:

6 peeled and spiralised zucchini, placed into 2 bowls

Add as many sliced mushrooms as you like and put aside.

For the dressing blend:

1 large mango

6 small tomatoes

1 handful of fresh basil

1 handful of fresh coriander

1 small chilli

fresh lime (according to taste)

Blend well and pour over the 2 servings.

I like to keep my meals very simple, mostly inline with 80/10/10 principles but Tom likes things with a lot more kick.  For that reason I added 1/4 of an avocado and a sprinkle of Italian herbs to mine but for his I added 1/4 of red onion, sea salt, black pepper and a generous sprinkle of hemp seeds.
