Smoothie bowls are easy, delicious and nutritious. I will let you know what is in mine and the possibilities for a smoothie bowl are unlimited and you can use what you have in the house and create your own versions. I do not have exact measurements because I always just through them together and eat, but here's an outline/estimation of my bowl
6 oz coconut water
2 oz aloe vera juice
1 oz homemade pineapple juice
1/2 frozen banana
5-6 frozen strawberries
Maca boost powder
1 scoop grass fed protein powder from True Recovery
Chocolate Chia Paleo Granola from Forager
Bring a pot of water with it filled about 1 1/2 inches filled up to a boil.
Turn the heat to a medium boil (not a roaring boil).
Put a splash of apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice) into the water.
Crack the egg into the boiling water and do not touch for 3-4 mins.
The egg should look more of a solid white color. With a slotted spoon gently scoop the egg and let it drain over the pot.
Transfer to a plate with a paper towl and let dry for a minute.
Repeat this process with however many eggs you want, you can also crack the eggs side by side, up to three in a medium pot.
You may want to add another splash of ACV into the water if making another round.
So I always crave desserts and baking.
This is not always the healthiest option when baking things.
I decided to look up some good recipes that don't include sugar!
And yes I know it is possible because I have made a few recipes without sugar.
With the banana in this recipe it makes it sweet!
Yes there is natural sugars in this recipe but that is totally okay with me so that I don't have all that refined sugar in my foods :)
Enjoy this nice little treat and try not to eat them all at once!
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Coconut flakes for topping
-Preheat oven to 350.
-Smash banana and coconut oil together.
-Add egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
-Add coconut flour and mix well until dough forms.
-Pinch off some to make a small ball and put on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or greased pan. (Makes about 12 smallish balls, you can press down to make more of a cookie shape also, they don't change shape much).
-Top with shredded coconut.
-Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes (mine took about 17 though).
-Cool and enjoy!
I got this recipe idea from this amazing website HERE
So this is one of the best ketchups I have ever made.
Considering it's only the second time I have made ketchup, I would say this is the perfect recipe.
I decided to make my own ketchup because my boyfriend and I LOVE our ketchup. We love it with our potatoes, sweet potatoes, chicken, ground turkey, eggs, and lots of other things but I just feel like we eat ketchup every day. Instead of buying it from the stores and getting preservatives and other crap inside I know exactly what went into my ketchup.
Be careful not to eat it straight out of the sauce pan because it might be hot, just blow on it first...that's what I did :)
I got this recipe from here. I tweaked it a tiny bit but not by much.
1 1/2 6 oz containers tomato paste (You can use two cans also, but I only had 1 1/2, it will just make it more tomato-y and that is okay!)
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water (I ended up adding another splash of water once it was boiling)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder (more for taste)
1. Using a food processor, pulse the onion until it is in small pieces.
2. Add the apple cider vinegar to the food processor and pulse until pureed or finely smooth (this is so you don't have chunks in the ketchup. Adding the apple cider vinegar will help puree the onion)
3. Add all ingredients (tomato paste, honey, apple cider vinegar, onion, water, sea salt, garlic powder) in a sauce pan, stir well, and bring to a boil.
4. Reduce to a simmer and stir every few minutes. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes. This will allow the ketchup to thicken and all the flavors to combine for a flavor blasting ketchup!
5. Let the ketchup cool and transfer into a glass bottle (I reused an Annie's BBQ Sauce jar and it filled it completely)
6. Refrigerate! I am not sure how long this will last but I am guessing a few weeks since there is no preservatives in it and it won't last forever.
Okay, now I am obsessed with lavender-flavor anything. Some people think it tastes like soap or something but not me!
I was so excited when I found lavender extract at Savory Spice Shop. This store rocks because they have all kinds of goodies! You can order from their site or they have locations throughout California. I go to the one in Sonoma, CA.
I was slightly jealous of all my friends at our Easter party yesterday because they had some AMAZING (my boyfriend said it was possibly the best ice cream he's ever had) homemade ice cream.
WHATEVER I said. Just kidding..I pretended like it looked gross and I honestly didn't want any. Well I passed up the brownies also. That made me want to make ice cream today!
So that being said here is some amazing guilt free ice cream. Feel free to experiment yourself as well.
1 1/2 frozen bananas
1/4 cup frozen mangos (I use Trader Joe's frozen mangoes)
1 tsp Vegan Chocolate Shakeology
sprinkle of honey powder (optional)
splash of water
splash of lavender extract
1. Put the frozen bananas in a high speed blender or even a food processor (I use a Ninja) you have it.
2. Pulse a little bit so the big chunks of bananas break down (the bananas will be super hard and difficult to work with so you can let them sit out for 5 minutes to soften before you blend them.
3. Add the frozen mangoes, Vegan Chocolate Shakeology, water, and lavender extract.
4. Slowly pulse the ingredients until it starts to break down more and blend until creamy texture. About 30 seconds or so depending on your blender/food processor.
5. Add another splash of water if it is not creamy enough. (You can also add almond milk or canned coconut milk or cream for a creamier texture).
6. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle Vegan Chocolate Shakeology and honey powder on top.
2 scoops banana protein powder
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup blueberries
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp coconut oil
1. Mix all ingredients except coconut oil.
2. Heat sautee pan to medium to high heat. Add coconut oil in pan and let melt.
3. Cook pancakes about 3-4 minutes on each side or until bubbles pop on the first side then flip.
My batch made 3 pancakes.
1 scoop Strawberry (or Vegan Strawberry) Shakeology
1 frozen banana (or fresh)
6 oz almond milk
4 oz water
1. Blend with ice and enjoy! The more ice, the thicker.
Note: If you use frozen banana, no need to add ice unless you want a thicker smoothie.
1 scoop vanilla shakeology
6 oz almond milk
4 oz water
1. Blend with ice and enjoy! The more ice, the thicker it will get.
*to your liking
1 scoop Cafe Latte Shakeology
6 oz coconut milk
4 oz water
1/2 cup kale
dash (1/8 tsp) cinnamon
splash (1/8 tsp) almond extract
1. Add coconut milk and water in blender first (so the Shakeology doesn't stick to the bottom). Then add in Shakeology, banana, kale, cinnamon, almond extract.
2. Blend and enjoy! Add ice if you like your smoothies cold, the more ice, the thicker it will get!
