Banana & Cacao Layered Smoothie

Ingredients
3 Bananas (1 Frozen)
1 Tablespoon of Coconut Sugar (I use coconut magic coconut sugar as its the best 🙂 )
1 Tablespoon of Cacao
1 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup of ice

Method
– Place Bananas, Coconut sugar, water and ice into the blender and blend until smooth. Remove half the contents and set aside.
– Add the Cacao to the smoothie remaining in the blender and blend until smooth.
– If you want your smoothie to have the layered effect, firstly pour some of the cacao smoothie into a glass (however thick you want the layers to be). Then get a big spoon and spoon the banana smoothie into the glass, make sure you spoon the smoothie so it runs down the side of the glass, other wise it may mix up. alternate until you fill the glass. I hope that makes sense 🙂 (if not there are some great you tube videos demonstrating how to layer smoothies)

Optional.
– Cut up some banana and sprinkle coconut sugar over the top and place into the smoothie
– I also added some cacao nibs to the top for a bit of crunch

Watermelon, Cucumber & Mint Smoothie

image (1)

Ingredients
2 Cups of Diced Watermelon
5cm Chunk of Cucumber (I used a lebanese cucumber)
4 Big Mint Leaves
1/4 cup of Water
Ice

Method
– Place all ingredients in blender (except the ice), blend until smooth. (My blender has a instrument you can put through the top to push all the ingredients to the bottom which is important when there is so little water. Alternatively you can blend for a few seconds and shake the ingredients to the bottom of the blender, which might be a bit time consuming or maybe use a food processor).
– Pop some ice into a cup/jar/glass then add the smoothie and drink up

– Enough for 1 or maybe 2 if you feel like sharing

Chia Pudding Topped with Raspberry Nice Cream

Photo 23-01-2015 1 15 34 pm

Ingredients

Chia Pudding
1 tin of Coconut Milk (400ml)
1/4 Cup of Chia Seeds
1 heaped teaspoon of Maple syrup (feel free to use what ever sweetener you like, honey, coconut flower nectar, agave etc)

Raspberry Nice Cream
1 Frozen Banana
2/4 Cup of Frozen Raspberries

Optional extras (Toppings)
– 1 Mango
– 1 Passion Fruit
– 1 Banana

Method

Chia Pudding
– Open tin of coconut milk and place into a container or jar (any seal-able container), add the 1/4 cup of chia seeds, stir well and set aside in the fridge.
– After 30mins-60mins add your chosen sweetener and give the jar another stir to make sure there aren’t any clumps and then leave in the fridge overnight.

Raspberry Nice Cream
– Place Banana and Raspberry into your food processor and blend until smooth (My food processor is tiny so I’m not sure how it would go in a big processor, if there isn’t enough in the processor to blend maybe add another frozen banana).

Assembly
– Once the Chia pudding is set put the desired amount into the bottom of a jar. Then spoon as much nice cream as you like on top.
– If you’re not worried about presentation just chuck as much pudding and nice cream as you like into a bowl and top with fresh fruit.

*I like to chop up banana and mix it through the chia pudding

* enough for 2 or 3, with some left over chia pudding (which keeps in the fridge for a few days)
