This mornings booster contained spinach, a whole lottta mint freshly picked, some papaya, melon, pineapple, banana and date paste. I also added some pollen and flax oil.
When curly tops looked at it she didn’t want any, and asked for a pink smoothie. I suggested she have a taste of it knowing she would get past the color and enjoy it. And that’s exactly what happened. It was super sweet- too sweet for me in fact but densely packed with goodness.
Had an early morning start today, so I needed to get going early.
I soaked my greens the minute I woke up and hit the shower, by then the greens had been well soaked and ready for the blender.
I chucked in an orange, 2 bananas becoming over ripe, an apple and a mango
Then i added my greens, I had some spinach, beet leaves and coriander.
whizzed it up with flax seed oil and bee pollen
and I was ready to go
I made extra for me to take with coz I tend to feel hungry quickly, packed oats and fruit for curly tops, she doesn’t always fancy the greens in the smoothie and hubby doesn’t like the taste of banana- so more for me! At least that’s what I had thought.
Grrrr, curly tops helped herself to my one bottle, and her dad to the other. So I was left to have sips here and there. I could have packed more had I known but so thrilled that they chose and wanted to have mine.
Less for me but the smoothie fever seems to be catching on
Today I felt like trying something new for breakfast, just to break away from the monotony of oats each morning. I was avoiding reaching for the prepackaged cereal boxes, which we do have very occasionally. So I found something curly tops and I would enjoy 🙂
Together we made a delicious, decadent chocolate mousse, nutritious enough to have for breakfast and not feel guilty about it 🙂 You must be wondering how this is possible right? A Chocolate mousse must be loaded with cream, sugar and other hidden calories and sweets. Well it doesn’t have to have all this stuff in it…
This is how:
You just blend 1 avocado,
4 Tbsp Cocoa
4 Tbsp Honey
1/4 cup Almond milk or other milk
Dash of Vanilla extract
Once blended, I served it to curly tops with a sprinkling of oats, and organic blueberries and voila! Ready to eat 🙂
How ’bout giving it a try and letting me know what you think
