This fig and blueberry smoothie is a variation of my blueberry power smoothie. The figs combined with the cashew butter, dates and banana makes the taste so deliciously sweet. This smoothie is simple to make and perfect when you need a quick power boost after exercise!
Creating delicious and nourishing plant-based food
My nutty crunch granola recipe is so simple and easy to make. It only contains four ingredients: roasted buckwheat, cashews, almonds and maple syrup. The combination of the roasted buckwheat and nuts gives the granola a crunchy texture whilst the maple syrup provides a delicious sweetness. This nutty granola is great for breakfast with coconut yogurt or chia pudding and served with fresh berries!
Chia pudding for breakfast involves planning ahead the night before but is definitely worth the effort. It only takes a few minutes to assemble the ingredients in a bowl and you can leave it to sit in the fridge overnight. In the morning, just add your toppings and you’re ready to enjoy!
This granola contains buckwheat instead of oats. Despite its name, buckwheat is not a grain but is actually a fruit seed that is part of the rhubarb family. As a pseudo-grain, buckwheat is a great alternative for people who are coeliac. It is also rich in minerals including manganese, magnesium, copper and B vitamins, to name a few.
A smoothie bowl is my ideal way to start the day through the summer months, topped with fresh berries, pumpkin seeds and goji berries. Smoothie bowls are a great opportunity to be creative with breakfast and personalise your perfect smoothie. Simply prepare a smoothie, pour it into a bowl (rather than a glass) and add your own choices of toppings. You can include anything from fresh berries, seeds, nuts, fresh fruit or granola. The combinations you can create are endless!
