Toppings to your smoothiebowl

So, about toppings… Those options are endless and I love how I can just play with it! A smoothie bowl topped with granola, gojiberries, coconut flakes and bee pollen takes it to another level. From my earlier post, I made this grainfree chocolate granola that gives it a great crunch with the clusters, then the gojiberries as well which are rich in antioxidants. The coconut flakes harmonies the flavor and takes me to the tropics. Then last but not least, the bee pollen, making it look even prettier with more vibrant colors in display! It’s also with lots of health benefits, it says that the ancient swore to it for vitality.

Other toppings I love are dried fruit like cranberries, dates and apricot. For a sweet tooth like me cacao nibs satisfy that need and gives it a great crunch too!

I encourage you to invest on toppings to your smoothie bowl since it will be an investment to your health and well being. In addition, it makes your bowl look so vibrant and pretty! Even though you might not think about it, making it a priority to invest on small things like these, means you care about yourself and that is so important for your own reflection and self esteem.

Where I get my favorite toppings are from organic and sustainable products produced by Helios & Supernature, check them out more here:

Green defence smoothie

I promise it’s worth to make this one a try!

I know it’s hard to believe me when I say green smoothies can actually taste good, but that is the truth if you make this one. Usually we relate green smoothies being hard to swallow, that we only drink them because we must, since they are healthy. However, guess what! You will on the contrary enjoy this one as it has a citrus taste, yet sweet because of the banana and dates. Altogether it balances off the greens and the super foods; chlorella and spirulina which by itself I admit isn’t nice at all. Oh, and let’s not forget another star ingredient; the defence drink from Vitamin Well! It contains B12 which prevents you from fatigue and tiredness, and is flavored with elderflower. I came up with the idea that this drink must be a good fit to the greens and I was right about that after I tasted it.

That’s why I am so excited to share with you guys this recipe, as it will benefit you with better health and well being, but the bonus being that it’s tasting good for you to also enjoy it! Let this be a new, fresh start on how you relate to green smoothies and may this be the first of many for you to make!

Ingredients

• 1 banana

• 2 dates

• Half an avocado

• One handful of frozen mangoes

• 4 cubes of frozen spinach

• 1 tsp chlorella https://www.super-nature.no

• 1 tsp spirulina https://www.super-nature.no

• Half a bottle of defence from https://www.vitaminwell.com/nb/product/defence-2/

• 2 dl plant based milk

• A squeeze of lemon juice

Instructions

In a blender, mix all ingredients and blend until smooth.

Ps: if you want it less thick, add more liquid like orange juice or the defence drink. And if you want it lighter, change the ratio on plant based milk with less and more of the defence drink!

Enjoy your dairyfree, glutenfree and refined sugar free drink, which only promotes good health for you.

This smoothie yields for 2 portions so you can easily save up the rest for the day after (hurray for saving time and cleaning up the day after) or make the other portion of smoothie to your partner, friend or family member. Let them be a part of this prosperous and wealthy lifestyle!

A great way to start your day and boost your immune system

Also I want to share the health benefits as I’m passionate about foods that are fuel to perform and good for your well being.

I introduce you the yoursuper mixes

First up is “Energy Bomb”. This superfood mix is made for long-lasting energy so that you can be at your best throughout the whole day!

Ingredients: açaí, guarana, maca, lucuma & banana powder.

Next up we have “Yellow Mellow”. This one is perfect as we live busy and stressful lives that can cause inflammation in our bodies. That’s why this powerful blend of Ayurvedic herbs and adaptogens that will help you de-stress and make you feel well rested rejuvenated. I love that this mix has added pepper as it helps us absorb better the turmeric which is anti inflammatory super ingredient!

Ingredients: turmeric, ashwagandha, ginger, cinnamon, lucuma & pepper powder.

Next in row is “Super Green”. This one is for immunity. It’s crucial for our health to have a strong immune system to function well. But it isn’t always that easy to cover all the greens and vitamins we need throughout the day as we may not find it interesting eating greens or are good at completing meals with all the nutrients we do so need. Therefore, this is an easy way to increase your intake of nutritious greens and natural micronutrients (with all essential vitamins and minerals) as one spoonful equals one handful of greens! How mind blowing is that.

Ingredients: wheatgrass, barley, grass, baobab, moringa, spirulina & chlorella powder.
