Breakfast Time with Bee Pollen

Breakfast Time with Bee Pollen

I love having fruit for breakfast, especially when it was the summer I was having it nearly everyday, now we are in autumn I’m still trying to have it before I start turning to the good old faithful porridge (oatmeal)!

So this morning I had my usual fruit, my favourites, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries alongside Rachel’s Organic Vanilla Yogurt, this time I sprinkled some Cacao Powder and Bee Pollen on top.

Bee Pollen is meant to be a great source of proteins, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, so I’ve been trying to incorporate about a teaspoon a day!


Top 5 Great Vegan Smoothies!

Here is a list of my top 5 vegan smoothies!

Persimmon & Kiwi Smoothie

I have been meaning to write this list for a while now and by jove, I have finally done it! I have compiled a list of my own smoothies that have been building up and I thought I would wait instead of putting them on separately, I thought I would just show you my top five vegan smoothies! These are great if you are just getting into eating healthy, becoming vegetarian, having a meatless monday or even if you just want to get in more veggies and fruit!! Here goes….!

1. Beginner Smoothie.

This is such a beautiful smoothie, especially for beginners. (Tip: you can’t taste the spinach, like at all!)

  • 1 Apple- Peeled & cored.
  • 1 Banana- Peeled and chopped.
  • 1 Cup Frozen Pineapple & Mango Chunks.
  • 1/2 Cup Raw Spinach.
  • 1/2 Cup Apple Juice.
  • 3 Medium Size Ice Cubes.

Pile in all ingredients at once into your blender, mine is a Nutri Ninja Pro which I absolutely love as it blends everything together with minimal effort and with ice or frozen fruit!!

2. Detoxing Green Smoothie.


  • Half A Cucumber- leave skin on!
  • 3 Small Mint Leaves.
  • 1 Apple- Peeled & Cored.
  • 1 Cup of Raw Spinach.
  • 1/2 Cup of Water.
  • 3 Medium Ice Cubes.

Throw everything into the blender and blend, done in 2 minutes with a bit of pulsing and the consistency was like juice!!

3. Freelee The Banana Girls Datorade


This is my take on Freelee’s Datorade, I love all her recipes for smoothies, so tasty! I just added a banana to make it that much thicker and even more creamy! Thanks Freelee!

  • 4 Dates- Stone taken out.
  • 1 Ripe banana- Peeled.
  • Few Drops Vanilla Essence.
  • 1-2 Cups of Water.

Whiz everything together in the blender, this is a great recipe for if you have a smaller blender than Freelee’s, if you want to you could also add ice, I actually poured mine over ice to make it nice and cold!!

4. Mango, Pineapple & Kiwi Fruit Smoothie.


  • 5 Chunks Frozen Mango.
  • 5 Chunks Frozen Pineapple.
  • 1/2 Frozen Kiwi Fruit.
  • 1/2 Banana.
  • 1/2 Cup Pure Orange Juice.
  • 1/2 Cup Water.

Blend together, for a less thick smoothie please add more orange juice or water, the taste of this had oodles of mango aftertaste, as soon as you sipped you really get the flavour of the pineapple! Wow!

5. Chocolate CoYo Banana Smoothie.


A delicious salted caremel & chocolate smoothie that is bound to be a new favourite!

  • 1/2 Coyo Chocolate Yoghurt.
  • 2 Banana’s- Peeled & Chopped.
  • Drizzle Salted Caramel Flavouring (Available at Waitrose).
  • 3 Ice Cubes.

Blend together in blender, super quick and deliciously creamy!

I hope this gives you some inspiration to go and try them, always remember that you can always modify these to suit your own taste buds, don’t be afraid to add more or less ingredients and you will be well on your way to a fitter and healthier you.

Enjoy! x


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.


  • 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!

Berry good for you smoothie.

Preparation –

Blend everything together and serve immediately.

Enjoy! x

Kiwi fruit & blackberries make the world a sweeter place!

Today I had a gorgeously sweet toothed breakfast that consisted of beautifully sweet frozen blackberries that were huge, kiwi fruit that was so ripe it literally melted in my mouth and a sprinkling of banana chips!
I finished it off with a few nuts and lashings of almond milk over oats!

I feel like my appetite has been fulfilled and I now wont be hungry until lunch!
