Hey guys, it’s been a while since I’ve posted but I’m coming back with the best vegan smoothie bowl! This recipe is very easy to make and you don’t even need a high-powered blender (I used my Nutribullet) it may take longer but it’s worth it. I usually like having this as a snack but it also makes a great breakfast. You can also add any supplements/protein powder to your smoothie bowl ( I was out of protein that day). So here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 Cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp chia seeds
1tbsp almond butter
Pulse the mango, blueberries and almond milk for about 30 secs.
Stir with a spoon, gradually add the almond milk and pulse again.
Blend until smooth and scoop into a bowl, topping it with anything you like. You can also use any liquid sweetener you like.
Thank you for reading, comment down any of your favourite smoothie bowl flavours, I’m looking to try out new combos. This was a quick one but let me know what you think and please like and follow for more, xoxo.
Hey guys, welcome back to my blog. In this post, I’m going to share the 3 snacks I alternate between in a week. I always aim to be completely honest with my content, because I believe that transparency is necessary especially with health/fitness influencers. So, as you can tell, my snacks are loaded with carbs. Now, let me first say that carbs are not the enemy, it is true that some bodies thrive on a higher-protein diet, but that does not mean everyone will or that carbs are evil. I love carbs, they make me happy and they fuel my workouts which is why I have them in every meal. You can easily add more protein to these snack ideas with a few tweaks, but anything works as long as you’re using whole foods with real nutrients.
#1. Banana Toast
I love this combo, it’s something I’ve seen my family have plenty of times and I am here for it. You may think carb on carbs is scary but it’s a great pre-workout snack, especially when you’re going all out. I sprinkle some cinnamon on top and if you want you can add almond butter as well. You can use any type of bread you like, but I always have gluten free bread, I either bake it (here is the recipe) or buy this one.
#2. Banana Coffee Smoothie
I’ve talked about this one a couple of times and you can find the recipe here. However, a few alternatives that I’ve been liking are cacao-coffee with raw cacao powder and cacao nibs and vanilla protein. I also have a new recipe coming up so look out for that.
I love popcorn, it’s salty and crunchy and just fun to eat. This is my usual late night snack; I use raw popcorn kernels (I like this one), pop it in a small saucepan with a little bit of olive oil for 5-10 mins or until the popping slows down and sprinkle in some Himalayan pinks salt or garlic salt.
That’s it for today’s post, it was a quick one but I hope you enjoyed it. I’d love to know what are some of your favourite snacks so let me know down in the comments. Please follow and like for more recipes and health posts, xoxo.
This simple recipe stemmed from my love of coffee and smoothies, it is vegan and gluten free. The flavour was exactly what I wanted, so if you’re tired of your usual smoothies and need a caffeine kick, give this a try. It can be a breakfast, snack or a pre-workout meal in my case, the best part is you can modify it by adding any vanilla protein powder you like.
I like adding cacao nibs and chia seeds at the end of making my smoothie because it adds fibre and nutrients, but also because I enjoy the texture. If simply drinking a smoothie is fine for you then you can omit this last step, but personally like the crunch.
1 1/2 frozen banana
1/2-1 cup almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
2 tsp instant coffee or 1 shot of espresso
1 tsp cacao nibs or cacao powder
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2-1 Scoop protein powder (I used Organifi’s Vanilla)
Blend frozen bananas, coffee, almond milk, protein powder and cacao nibs in a powerful blender. (I used my nutribullet)
Pulse your blender if needed.
Pour in a glass and mix in the chia seeds.
I hope you enjoyed this blogpost, thank you for reading. Feel free to like and follow for more recipes like this one, xoxo.
This smoothie is a great detox breakfast or snack, packed with antioxidants and a high content of chlorophyll (green pigment in the leaves) which cleanses the body of toxins. The green apples have a high fibre content, keeping you satisfied for longer and the mint not only adds flavour to the smoothie, but is also rich in nutrients such as; vitamin A, iron and manganese. In other words, this smoothie is just the energy boost you need in the morning, but without the crash.
1 large green apple
1/2 tsp matcha powder (unsweetened)
a few mint leaves
1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
4-5 stevia drops (or any sweetener of choice)
Throw all the ingredients in a blender, add some ice and enjoy!
I hope you all enjoy this recipe and please leave a comment below if you try it out, xoxo.
This refreshing smoothie bowl is a great breakfast idea and the best part is that it’s vegan and has plenty of nutritional benefits.
Pineapple- has both digestive and anti-inflammatory benefits
Coconut milk- is a healthy fat and is high in vitamin C and many more. (Plus it makes smoothies creamy and delicious!)
Banana- has a high fiber content and is loaded with nutrients such as potassium (plus it’s a great sweetener!)
Chia seeds- are packed with antioxidants and their high fiber and protein content makes them ideal for weight loss.
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
1/2 cup coconut milk
1tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp lemon zest
Pour your coconut milk into your blender first, then add all your fruit and ice.
Blend into a smooth consistency and serve topped with chia seeds, a drizzle of coconut milk and your choice of frozen fruit.
You can also add any other fruits you’d like to this simple recipe. One of my favorite combinations are frozen blueberries, banana and lemon zest (it tastes just like a blueberry muffin!) I hope you enjoyed this recipe, please like and follow for more. Thank you for reading xoxo.
