Okay, let's share the first recipe!

Going with the "Fresh Start" theme, I am sharing a recipe for a healthy and VEGAN protein-packed blueberry smoothie bowl. It is an incredibly easy breakfast to make and looks gorgeous.

Just look at that colour! 

Smoothies are a great way to start the day as you can add whatever you like to them. I normally add: 

  • Fresh/Frozen Fruit (depending on what's in the fridge!) 
  • Fruit juice/coconut water
  • Sometimes I add oats/nuts/chia seeds for extra protein. 

Serves: 1
Time: 5 minutes 

You will need:
  • 2 handfuls frozen blueberries, plus a few extra for decoration
  • 1-2 tbsp oats 
  • A small handful of almonds
  • 50ml coconut water (you may need more/less depending on your desired consistency) 
  • Splash of vanilla (optional but completely reccomended!) 
  • 1 teaspoon roasted pumpkin seeds 

1.Add all ingredients to a blender, reserving a few blueberries and the pumpkin seeds for decoration. 
2. Blend until smooth. There really isn't very much effort required to make a smoothie. However making them yourself is a lot cheaper than buying ready made versions and you can customise them with your favourite ingredients. That's what I call a win-win!
3. Pour the smoothie into your favourite bowl or glass.
4. Top with the reserved pumpkin seeds and blueberries. Enjoy!

Best eaten ASAP, after you take a snap for Instagram of course :)
