Super Sweet Deceptively D`elicious

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.

Smoothie-to-go

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

Chocolate mousse for breakfast. Yummmmm

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

Nuts (optional)

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
