Well, this mango smoothie recipe is so simple it practically doesn’t need a whole blog post about it but the flavour is just so beautiful that I would feel selfish if I didn’t share it. This recipe came about as I am forever trying to get my little girl to have more calcium-rich foods in her diet. She is also not a fan of bananas unless I can sneak them into a smoothie so I decided to create a milk-based drink for her to have at breakfast time that was rich in vitamins and minerals. This smoothie is so delicate and creamy. The mixture of coconut and mango give it a really summery feel and it is very filling, making it the perfect choice for breakfast. So, a little bit about the nutrition. Aside from using fortified coconut milk which contains calcium, B12 and vitamin D the mango is a real powerhouse of nutrients. Just one cup of mango contains 76% of your daily vitamin C. On top of this it’s a rich source of B vitamins, vitamin A, copper, potassium and fibre. The humble banana adds to this concoction of goodness by offering a healthy source of potassium, vitamin […]
Time to relax and enjoy the lazy bowl of Sunday. What a week! We hope you’ve enjoyed your journey through our bowls of seven days. We’d love to know which one was your favourite. Happy Sunday one and all! Kiwi and Blueberry Porridge Now it’s up to you if you want to call this bowl breakfast, brunch or even pudding. It’s a close call. I’m not one to usually add any sugar into a dish if it’s not strictly necessary but here is my exception. Porridge. We don’t have this dish every day but when we do it’s beyond incredible. There is not an empty bowl on the table and when the kids know it’s a porridge day they run around like crazy, wild things as if I’ve just told them Santa’s coming for breakfast. (No joke!) This is the kind of bowl that you want to drag to bed with you and snuggle under the sheets with. The kind of bowl that you can close the world to and get your hygge on. The kind of bowl… ok I think you get the message. But really it’s super lush. But as I’m sure you know by now I’m not […]
Thursday’s here and the weekend’s just on the horizon. Let’s get into party mode and have a celebration in a bowl… Triple swirl nice cream I don’t know who came up with the idea of nice cream but I am jolly well taking my hat off to them! I have tried so many different ways to get Pops to eat a banana and have failed miserably until the joy of nice cream came into our lives. Our two love this recipe. I can not tell you the look of shock on their faces when I told them they were having ice cream for breakfast one day. They really did think that mummy had finally gone bananas. (Excuse the pun!) No matter if you’re young or old though this little beauty of a dish is really something to write home about. A delicious mix of fruity flavours, a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. Ingredients Mango nice cream 1 frozen banana Handful of mango Desiccated coconut to serve Blueberry nice cream 1 frozen banana Handful of blueberries A dash of dairy-free milk Desiccated coconut to serve Matcha nice cream 2 frozen bananas 1 tsp matcha powder A dash of […]
Right then you lovely lot we are sharing the love this week with seven posts for seven days. It’s in celebration of our new look blog and we are running with the theme of bowls! This is a cracking recipe and a perfect choice to kick off the week. It’s the energy boost we all need to get ourselves going on a Monday morning. Stay tuned for some delicious recipes and nutrition advice and have yourselves a wonderful Monday. Bowl of oats Ok, so this bowl we have at least five days out of seven. It’s our breakfast practically every day except for the days when we maybe have porridge, granola or a cheeky cooked breakfast. We even have it for supper sometimes too as put simply…it’s da bomb! This is a very loose recipe as it is entirely down to preference what fruits, nuts and seeds you use. We choose to start our day with these bowls as they are a great way to get as many nutrients into our family as we can. The oats are quite possibly one of the healthiest foods on the planet boasting numerous health benefits. They are a great source of fibre and […]
I am not a tofu fan. There I said it. I am a vegan and I don’t like tofu. Am I the only one? It does feel like it sometimes. I have tried it in many recipes but I just can’t seem to get past the fact that it doesn’t have enough bite to it. (Please feel free to contact me if you have any pointers!) Ok, so maybe the correct sentence should be I didn’t used to like tofu or more accurately I don’t like tofu when I’m using it as a meat substitute but something glorious has happened to my life recently and that is I have found a freaking awesome tofu scrambled egg recipe! I never really enjoyed scrambled egg when I was pre-vegan but this recipe is simply da bomb! If you are like me and want to get more tofu into your life for its mega health properties (hello protein!) then this really is the one for you. I have had a play around with this recipes a bit but found that adding the secret ingredient (I’ll get to that bit in a minute!) has made it something so special. So if you fancy a […]
