Banana Chip Pardeee!

This I found was a really lovely idea for a get together if maybe you were worried about catering for vegetarians etc, it’s very quick and simple and great if you don’t have much time!

Peanut butter with banana chips= good times!

Banana chips with a teaspoon of peanut butter, sunflower seeds and a cheeky cacao nib. Gorgeous, I loved the the crunch of the banana chip with the smooth texture of the peanut butter, looks cute too!

Yummy!

The figs, prunes, nuts and raisins all work perfectly together and for a little party this is okay, as with everything and what I would tell anyone who asked me, I would say every thing in moderation but feel okay to splurge a little especially when it comes to fruit in any form!

Berry good for you Smoothie.

Berry good for you Smoothie.

Berry good for you smoothie

This smoothie, wow, firstly the colour once blended was this gorgeous rich deep purple, almost like a vat of blended beetroot! This really delivered on flavour, in it’s delicacy I loved the way you could taste each fruit, without having to add a banana. The consistency of this is rather thin but if you want it to be thicker then don’t add as much water! Also for a side note, blackberries have tiny little seeds as you all know, so if you want you can sieve out the seeds after blending everything together.

Ingredients-

  • 1 Persimmon fruit – Peeled and chopped.
  • 1 Cup Frozen blackberries.
  • 1 Orange – Squeezed juice only.
  • 1 Handful greens – spinach. (I’m going to look like Popeye at this rate!)
  • 3 Ice cubes
  • 1 Cup water – or less if you want it thicker!

Preparation –

Blend everything together and serve immediately.

Deliciously nutritious!

This is my morning boost smoothie that promises to deliver energy and a wake up call to those taste buds, to really start the day with a pow! I love that it tasted delicately sweet with a hint of lime, which made for a lovely after taste which was like a tangy explosion! Very refreshing and the consistency would be likened to a juice, so a perfect companion during a workout or even to have alongside oats with breakfast!

Ingredients-

  • 1/2 Juice of a Lime- You could do more if you like!
  • Juice of 1 Large Orange.
  • 1 Banana- Peeled.
  • 4 Plums- Peeled and pitted.
  • 1/2 Cup tightly packed spinach.
  • 3 Medium sized Ice Cubes.

Do all the preparation of the fruit before you start and then add banana, plums, spinach and juices to the blender, I use a Nutri Bullet blender and blend until you cant see the spinach anymore!
