This is my to go smoothie when I’m really short of time and I have some fresh home-made coconut milk in the fridge.
A handful of spinach and the rest is a raid of the cupboard.

A cup of Golden Milk is such a comforting way to end a hectic day and the health benefits are amazing!
The indian spice turmeric contains curcumin one of the most potent anti-inflammatories in nature!
And did I mention it’s delicious as well?

Acai and Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

20140803162456(3)

Starting the day with a yummy smoothie bowl is very satisfying especially in the summer as it’s so smooth and cooling and full of health boosting nutrients.
(the more good nutrients your body get’s the more you are protected against the sun-rays).
This is a perfect breakfast for kids I have yet to meet a child who turns up it’s nose to a nicely decorated smoothie bowl 🙂
Acai berries and blueberries go really well together and you end up with a concoction that is jam-packed with antioxidants!
You only need 4 ingredients (frozen banana, acai powder, blueberries and coconut or another nut milk) the rest is just for decoration and you can use whatever you want, nuts, seeds, goji berries, coconut yoghurt, fruit or berries.
I hope you like it!

Healthy Guilt-free Frappuccino (vegan)

20140705163824(3)I absolutely adore Coffee Frappuccino’s ever since I had my very first Ice-blended coffee at The Coffe Bean in Beverly Hills 1994.
I was working on a documentary with a less than uplifting subject, and sipping on this in the early morning sunshine as I watched the city come to life just made my time in LA very special.
Ice cream have always been my comfort food of choice , I guess I need to cool down…
The above recipe is my healthy version of  an ice-blended drink and It’s super yummy!!
I use dandelion as a coffee substitute, it’s good for the digestion it supports important liver function.
Hope you like it!
