Berrylicious Smoothie

I was inspired by the Berrylicious Smoothie at Kreation to try to replicate it at home. Their version is delicious, but mine came pretty darn close.

Blend together 6 raspberries, 5 large strawberries (I used Harry’s berries from the farmer’s market), 1/4 cup coconut water, 1/2 cup coconut milk, one small banana, one spoonful of almond butter, and one spoonful of raw clover honey. Blend until it becomes a smooth consistency and beautiful pink color. This is a great way to start your day or a midday snack. It is thick and luxurious and totally satisfying.

Thanks for the inspiration, Kreation. Don’t worry, I will still buy yours because it is packed with additional goodness, but this is a great substitute.

Breakfast Sushi

My dear friend Lisa of @eatcleanla inspired me to make this breakfast sushi. It is absolutely delicious and looks impressive! Don’t worry, it will be our little secret that it is super easy to make.

You will need smoked salmon, spinach, and 2 eggs. Of course you can add more ingredients and use more eggs. Spray a non stick pan with coconut oil and heat to medium heat. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl and pour into the pan. Leave the eggs alone to cook in one flat layer, do not flip. When cooked through, slide onto a plate. Place a layer of spinach on top of the eggs, then top with a layer of thinly sliced smoked salmon. Carefully roll this into a sushi roll, starting from one of the edges. Tightly roll until you get to the other edge. Next, cut the roll into little section about an inch or so wide to make a cut sushi roll. The colors are vibrant and it looks and tastes so good! The added bonus is you are getting lots of protein and omega 3’s.

The posibilities are endless for flavor combinations. I’m so glad I tried this and you will be too!

Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Nibbles

A friend of mine posted a picture of these little vegan gems she was making for her daughter’s school. She eats really clean and has a fabulous yoga body so I decided to whip them up and see if I liked them.

As you all know, I love to bake and prefer to use full fat, from scratch recipes, but every so often I come across a great healthy alternative. This is exactly that kind of healthy treat that is tasty and totally guilt free. The recipe only has four ingredients and I super easy to make. You will need two ripe bananas, dash of cinnamon, 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, 1 1/4 cup oats (I used gluten free).

Mash the bananas in a bowl until they are completely blended. Add the oats, cinnamon, and chocolate chips until mixed well. Take a small ice cream scoop or two spoons and scoop out the batter onto a greased cookie sheet. I used coconut oil spray to grease it. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 mins and allow to completely cool. They are sweet and slightly crunchy on top. Perfect for a snack or even breakfast. The recipe makes 12 bite size morsels, so if you need more feel free to double the recipe.

Two Ingredient “Pancakes”

One of my favorite healthy breakfasts to make only takes two ingredients. Two eggs and a ripe banana. These make up thin, crepe like pancakes that are light and delicious.

Peel one ripe banana and put into a bowl. Blend well with a hand mixer to create a fluffy banana base. Crack two eggs into the banana puree and whip until frothy. Take a 1/4 measuring cup and measure out this amount of batter and pour onto a greased, preheated pan. The pan must be heated just below medium heat because these pancakes cook quickly and tend to burn fast. I use coconut oil spray to grease the pan. Use a metal spatula a flip the pancakes once the top is covered in bubbles and the bottom is a beautiful golden brown color. They will only need about 30 seconds to finish cooking on this side.

Once they are all ready, put on a plate and you can top with fresh fruit, greek yogurt, agave or all three!
