Breakfast Smoothie: Rasberry, Blueberry, Bananas, Kiwi, Lime

By on May 18, 2014
A few days ago I posted this photo of my breakfast smoothie on Instagram. It’s one of many I’ve been having lately, because I have become addicted lol. This delicious recipe is like your usual blend of fruits, but with a special ingredient, chia seeds.
Chia seeds (my new best friend) have a lot of health benefits, not only are they high in fibre, they contain Omega 3 (which has vital fats that protect against arthritis and heart disease). Most of all, It makes you feel fuller and reduces food cravings. A perfect ingriedient for your breakfast smoothie (or any smoothie for that matter).
Ingredients includes:
-Palm sized amoung of frozen Blueberries & raspberries
– Banana x 1 1/2
– Kiwi (sliced) x 1
– Lime (Freshly Squeezed) x 1
– Chia Seeds 1 Tsp
– Orange Juice 100ml
– Ice
Blend together in your blender / smoothie maker and then serve 🙂
Let me know what you think
Enjoy X

Cocoa Mint Tea: My perfect winter drink

By on December 19, 2013
I came about this recipe a few weeks ago, when I was trying to decide between a cup of tea and a cup of Hot cocoa. After deliberating for a while I just thought.. why not mix the two?. LOL and to my surprise it turned out great and I have been drinking it ever since. I enjoy mixing flavours and like trying new things so over the weeks I’ve tried to develop this recipe to be enjoyed by everyone. But seriously who would have thought hot chocolate and tea together lol!  I’ve added a few extra ingredients to this for the best flavours to leave you feeling warm/fuzzy and wanting more;). This will be perfect for those winter days/nights and of course christmassss. Hopefully you guy’s like it Enjoyy xx
 Ingriedients
Milk (Almond, Soya or Hazelnut) I like Hazelnut the best 😉
Whipped Cream
Cocoa Powder
Tea bag x1
Honey/Brown sugar
Cinnamon
Nutmeg.
Mint.
Method:
– Boil some water in a kettle.
– In a mug add 1 tea bag (Tetley Or PG tips)
– Once the water has boiled pour it in to your mug (just like you’re making normal tea). This time only pour about a quarter of water into the mug. Leave to brew for about 30-40 seconds and then remove the teabag.
Grab another jug and add about 3-4 fresh mint leaves the more the mintier 😉 pour about 3 quarters of extra warm Milk, (Almond or Hazelnut milk great for this) over the mint leaves and leave to brew for about a minute or 2. Remove the leaves once it’s brewed  (you can leave it in if you like) and pour the warm milk into the tea and mix well. Grab your Cocoa powder and add about 1 1/2  to 2 teaspoons to the mixture and mix well.
– You will need about  a pinch of nutmeg and  about 2 pinches of cinnamon, followed by 2 teaspoons of honey or sugarl. You can add extra milk if you want it milkier. Mix well and add your whipped cream on top sprinkle some cinnamon  and enjoyy!! x

Strawberry Banana & Kiwi Smoothie

By on

I recently bought a smoothie maker which I loveee as I can now make yummy smoothies and shakes. It’s definitely a kitchen staple especially if you’re looking to make some yummy healthy drinks. I made my first smoothie (above) which is a Banana, Strawberry and Kiwi smoothie with a hint of mint ;). It’s pretty easy/simple to make, all you need is: Ice, Strawberry’s, Banana, Kiwi and Mint leaves. Followed by 250ml of Milk (or soya). If not you could use yoghurt, I used strawberry yoghurt for this recipe. Chuck them all into your smoothie blender. Depending on the fruit, like the banana and kiwi you’ll have to chop them up first beforehand. Blend together for about 30 – 45 seconds, pour into a cup, jug whatever you like to use get you mint leaves place them on top then Serve 🙂 
Enjoyy x
