To be honest, I really like to chew my food, so having a smoothie can sometimes put me off. That’s not the case with this lovely smoothie. I call it my Healthier Green Smoothie.
Make every meal special, why not serve your fresh and healthy breakfast smoothie in a wine glass!
Well balanced using fresh spinach, fresh apple -with peel, good fats with flax seeds, hemp seeds, tahini and a medjool date for hit of sweetness wrapped up with fibre and iron. But what I really love is the addition of essential oils. For this recipe I choose lemon, lime and ginger. The lemon and Lime help with your metabolism in the morning and the freshness wakes me up. I used Ginger for the warming touch it gives and for digestion.
What a perfect breakfast smoothie!
Bright, well balanced Smoothie that will suit the whole family.
So balances…so fresh…loving the essential oil addition!

What a great concept, the healthy way to have bircher What a great concept, the healthy way to have bircher muesli! Overnight oats are healthy more accessible way to have Bircher Muesli and is a healthier alternative. muesli! Overnight oats really are healthy more accessible way to have Bircher Muesli – and because you are not using fruit juice and dairy – is a healthier alternative. Bonus, you are not restricted to using oats, I have created these wonder jars with quinoa flakes as well as rice flakes.
Building Breakfast from the bottom of the Jar up!
The basics are so simple – you need 1/4 cup (per serve) of raw/organic long cooking rolled oats, water, mason jar with lid. REALLY that’s all your need. Adding your touches is what makes this a killer breakfast. I like to add mashed banana, raspberries (fresh or frozen) Tahini, maple syrup and toasted nuts or seeds.
Last night I didn’t have all my go to ingredients, I used what was on hand. Here is what I created – 1/4 cup oats, 1 medjool date (diced and mashed), 1/4 cup frozen raspberries, 1 spoon almond butter, 1 tsp raw cacao, and to serve, toasted almonds and pumpkin seeds. I also heated my oats before eating – I filled a pot with water and put the jar in and heated both together (TIP: bring the cold water and cold jar up to temp together prevents glass from shattering). If you are short on time, you can always microwave the jar for about 1-2 minutes for the same result.
See the following recipe for your next FUN breakfast creation! If you want to create a larger batch easy also. What you can do, is use 1/4 measure per portion – for example you want to create 8 portions you would measure 2 full cups. I would then put this is a large bowl that will fit in your fridge and add the water, about 4 cups.

The simple joy of creating a Raspberry Smoothie bowl. Time to Wake up and enjoy the wonder of PINK!
I love raspberries so much I will put up the seeds getting stuck in my teeth. This week I decided to take a closer look at this little power gem of vibrant color and see why we should be eating them. I wasn’t disappointed; they are a great source of Vitamin C, K, E, fibre, magnesium and potassium. They have the right antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients for anti- cancer treatments and improve management of obesity.
I have been using raspberries for years as a simple dessert garnish and as the base for other sweet creations. After researching them this week I decided to create a simple yet effect away to absorb all their health giving nourishment and allow them to take centre stage. Breakfast perfection in a smoothie bowl YUMMY!. I think the picture says it all.
My notes for this recipe…are in picture form enjoy! The topping for this creation is toasted pumpkin seeds, some berries, toasted coconut flakes. I made the smoothie with 1/2 an avocado, frozen organic raspberries, unsweetened almond milk, rice syrup, sunflower seed butter and some ice all blended up.
