A quick recipe which I literally couldn’t get enough of!
You will need-
6 (or more) frozen bananas
2-3 tbsp (depending on how many bananas you use and how much of an addict you are!) peanut butter (homemade is best!)
2 (or more) Medjool dates (pitted and soaked for a few hours in about half a cup of water)
2 tbsp Carob powder
1 tbsp Cacao nibs
2 tsp cocoa powder (optional)
Using your blender, blend the frozen bananas with a small splash of water until you get a beautiful ice cream consistency, now you can add the peanut butter after this stage or swirl it in after! Totally up to you!
Next blend the dates, along with the water they have been soaked in, you can add more but I like a thick consistency, then add in the carob powder and the cocoa powder (if you want a proper chocolatey flavour!)
Put in bowl, cup or hey you can even use your hands…I wont judge!
Sprinkle over some Cacao nibs for the crunch factor and wow, perfection in a bowl (or hands..!)
This was such a gorgeous filling lunch when I teamed it with some pitta bread and vegetable batons, alternatively it works with poppadoms as well!
What you need.
200g Frozen Peas (but defrost them before blending!)
5 Shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Chilli N Lime Sauce
1 Tsp Medium heat chilli powder
A Sprinkle of Chilli seed mix (Tesco)
A squeeze of half fresh lime.
Grab your defrosted peas, pop them into the blender, shake on the chilli sauce, the powder and squeeze in the lime. Turn blender on for about 3-5 minutes depending on how lumpy you would like your dip!
Sprinkle on the chilli seeds (these contain sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds), some extra chilli sauce (optional), you need to cut your vegetables up into batons and choose your pitta bread and or poppadoms! 🙂
I simply love the Chilli seed mix, which I bought from Tesco, it comes in a handy little tub as well perfect for those office desks when you get a pang for snacks, perfect to nibble on!
So there you have it, I think I have created a yummy lunch, it filled me up and was healthy all at the same time. Give it a try and you wont be disappointed, also a quick tip take out the amount of frozen peas you need the night before and leave in the fridge, that way you are good to go. It really does take minutes!
