Cocoa, banana, avocado and almond butter smoothie with pumpkin seeds.

The thickest, creamiest and most delicious smoothie I’ve ever made. You could so easily fool someone in to thinking this was an unhealthy milkshake. I’m bad at photographing smoothies but I had to document this one!!

Recipe: 1 small avocado, 1 verrrry ripe banana, 1 tbsp cocoa, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 cup ~ish almond milk and a few ice cubes.

Raw, vegan and chocolate truffles! (recipe here.)

I changed a few of the ingredients to suit what I already had - in place of hazelnuts I used Brazils and almonds, cocoa instead of cacao, maple syrup instead of agave and flax instead of chia. They still worked perfectly, though! I rolled them in a little more cocoa and now they’re firming up in the fridge.

Spoiler: they’re scrumptious.

Finally, a kale smoothie I want more of! :D
Kale, cucumber, iceberg lettuce, fresh lemon, flaxseed, frozen mixed berries, cranberry juice, honey and almond milk, topped with honey nut clusters.
It’s also the most ‘green’ of all the smoothies I’ve made. I wanted romaine over iceberg but we sadly only had iceberg left. This tasted a little green with the first taste, but after that all I really tasted was the berries. I’ll definitely be having this one again!

Kale, frozen banana, pineapple and kiwi, unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla, flaxseed and organic almond butter smoothie topped with coconut and served with a pretentious side strawberry.
This mix was… not my favourite! The almond butter took away all sweetness. I thought it would make it more ‘tropical’ but nope. Bleh. I gulped this all down, nonetheless! Goodness is goodness, even if it’s not the most palatable of things.
I know tomorrow in Sunday - which means a day off the green smoothie wagon - but I haven’t been sticking to the exercise like I said I would, so no breakfast treat for me tomorrow. I’ll try and make a really nice kale monster instead. :)

Breakfast - Hulk smoothie! Aka curly kale, frozen banana, strawberries and raspberries, flaxseed, cinnamon and unsweetened almond milk. Topped with apple and honey oatbran granola. And decorative, poncy strawberry.

This didn’t taste of kale, huzzah! So many blogs say they can’t taste it, but I never believed them because kale is ~such a strong taste. There’s one large handful in here, so about a heaping cup. The after taste is a little ‘green’, but it’s not unpleasant! It was definitely palatable, so that’s good. The whole smoothie is a little under a pint - it’s three hours later and I’m still not hungry! :)

I think I’ll go with my fave green combo tomorrow - frozen banana, pb, cinnamon and flaxseed. Oh, and of course kale. Can’t forget that kale.
