Clean Green Lean Smoothie

20150726152457(1)

I could easily live on just this Clean Green Smoothie, It’s so fresh and smooth and packed full of goodness!
Because of the avocado It’s also very filling, so the perfect meal replacement if you don’t feel like eating to much.
And as with all my recipes it’s beyond quick to make, all you need is a half decent blender.

These Raw Lemon Bites are sooo addictive but also full off goodness!
I’m really into anything and everything lemon flavoured at the moment and these bites hits the spot.
They are extremely easy to make, you just mix and leave in the fridge for a few hours and voilà!
It’s the perfect dessert or serve it as a special occasion snack.
Hope you like it!

Zucchini with Lemon and Mint

20120328012821(1)

There was lots of Zucchini in the Veg-Box this week and I found a super easy delish recipe for baked zucchini with lemon and mint here.
I loved it!!!

Zucchinis are full of nutrients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C and potassium.
It’s also high in important fibre and really low in calories.

You need:
6 small zucchini (or less, I used all I had) halved lengthways and chopped.
1 red onion.
I lemon, finely grated rind and the juice.
1 tablespoon of raw coconut oil.
Fresh mint leaves.

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 220C. Place everything in an oven dish (except the mint leaves, which you sprinkle over just before serving) together with salt and pepper
.
According to the recipe says you should roast it for 18-20 minutes, this was a lie or my oven is not working!

After 50 minutes!!! I had to take them out to rush off to a parent-teatcher meeting, but I could easily have left it in for another 10 minutes just to give the veg a bit more colour.
I loved the dish though, even cold! (which it was by the time I got home to eat)

Love Lisa
