DRAGON FRUIT and Chia layered smoothie

Firstly, you gotta make sure you check out the Pink Power Tonic by Misty Day Plant Potions. The powder gave this smoothie those beautiful shades of pink and a sweet but refresssshing flavour.

100% VEGAN. 100% Dragon fruit (Pitaya) powder. 100% natural and contains NO sugar. You can add a teaspoon of powder into hot drinks, desserts, smoothies, drinks and baking in general for extra nutrition and colour! I love knowing that I have a completely natural and vegan food colouring for my smoothies. It’s quite pricey for 50g BUT it will last if you use it well and is very much worth it.

Click here to view the product, they also do a range of other tonic powders that help provide energy, detox, calmness and have their own individual benefits.

Berries and Mango frozen smoothie

I was in such a summery mood this morning, only because the sun was shining in london…it’s not now. It also lasted only a few hours (so typical), but I did get really excited which led to me making these yummy frozen smoothies. Unfortunately it really is COLD so I couldn’t actually finish them. Hot chocolate would have been so perfect. But here…


Berries and Mango frozen smoothie

1 cup of Frozen mixed berries
2 handfuls of Frozen mango
Handful of blueberries
Handful or Frozen cherries
A few slices of Banana
1 tsp of Acai powder
Half a cup of Coconut water

Avocado and Blueberry frozen smoothie

yummm

1 Frozen avocado
Half a cup of blueberries
Half a banana
1/4 cup of almond milk

Chia, Pineapple and Blackberry ðŸŒ¼

Note to self: NEVER drink coffee on an empty stomach.

I don’t even drink coffee but before making this smoothie, I attempted to make a cinnamon and chocolate latte for you coffee lovers. Yeah, it sounds nice but it really wasn’t. Thought it might have just been me as obviously coffee is not for me, but nope, my mum (who LOOOOVES coffee) also hated it.

Okay so, I currently feel really sick. Coffee does this thing to me where it makes my heart beat really fast. SO FAST! Not sure if that is normal…it doesn’t feel normal.


On a more positive note,

Pineapple and Blackberry combined together taste AMAZING!! You guys have to try it, if you haven’t already.

 

 

• The bottom layer is Blackberry

and chia seeds.

• Middle layer is blackberry, chia

seeds and a handful of pineapple

(The pineapple will make the

smoothie go a lighter shade

purple).

• The top layer is just pineapple.

Easy 😌

TIP

Chia seeds help to make smoothies thick enough so that you can layer them. Just add it to the fridge for a few minutes before using it.

‘Budgie Smoothie’ according to my mum…

So it kind of went like this,

Me: “Mum if I wanted to name this smoothie, what would be a good name?”

Mum: “Hmmm, I’m not sure”

Me: whilst holding it and walking next to my budgie: “Omg look, it matches lily(my bird)”

Mum: “That’s it! Name it budgie!”

Me: “No mum that’s weird”

Mum: “Oh shit, you can’t any way, it’s supposed to be vegan”

😂😂😂

This yummy smoothie contains:

• Two large handfuls of Spinach and 1 pear.

• A whole mango with half a banana just to thicken it up so that I can layer both flavours because my blender is absolutely rubbish that it can’t really blend frozen fruit. Should probably invest in one. I much prefer frozen fruit to layer. But the smoothie still tastes quite amazing 😌

• Blend the different layers separately and place in the fridge to thicken and cool before pouring it into your glass.

GRAPEFRUIT and GINGER juice

My mum came home about an hour after I made this, walked into the kitchen, looked at the other half of the grapefruit casually laying on the counter by itself, and laughed. She then said, “WHAT on earth are you doing with that grapefruit Christina? I hope it’s not what I’m thinking” and looked at me in the most dirtiest way. If you’ve seen the movie Girls Trip then you’ll know. We both just burst out laughing.
