If you’re following my Instagram account (link) then I’m sure you know how much I love smoothies! Today I was inspired to try something new so I made a smoothie with beetroot. That’s actually one of my favorite vegetable and I could eat it as main course every day! :D

INGREDIENTS (super simple!):

  • handful of blueberries (mine were frozen but I let them stay for a bit since I’m using hand blender at the moment)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 dcl beetroot juice (and some beetroot)
  • 1 dcl oat drink (or you can add anything else – coconut, almond, dairy milk…)

I usually add a tsp of maca powder but completely forgot this time. Anyway, I really liked this smoothie because it did taste like beetroot but less intense. :)

Enjoy!

p.s. I love these black and white paper straws that I got at Granit store!

Simple and delicious breakfast (or dessert)!

Today I’m sharing with you a lovely and simple breakfast idea (I don’t think it can get easier than this?)! This is actually one of my favorite breakfasts which can easily be a delicious dessert for you and your guests as well. There isn’t really a recipe here because the ingredients are already ready and you just need to layer them together!

Since I love berries I usually use them but, you can easily use anything else you love. :)

INGREDIENTS:

  • fruit (in my case wild fruit and blueberries)
  • plain yogurt (feel free to add a bit of honey or agave syrup)
  • oats/musli/nut mix

I like to layer these in the order mentioned above. :)

And here’s how it looks like!

Chia Pudding

I’ve been using chia seeds for a long time now but barely a few weeks ago I discovered something amazing: chia seeds pudding! That’s such a simple meal and yet so delicious!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2,5 – 3 dcl milk (dairy, soy, almond, coconut… it doesn’t matter, it just depends what you prefer)
  • addiotional ingredients if you like to play: raw cocoa (1 tbsp), honey, agave syrup, maple syrup, vanilla extract… anything you’d like, use your imagination :)

DIRECTIONS: simply combine chia seeds and milk in a bowl or a smaller jar and leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Stir the mixture again. Leave it in the fridge for at least 6-8 hours; overnight would be perfect. If you’re using a bowl remember to cover it (jars come with lids and that’s why I prefer them).

SERVING: since I don’t use anything to make my pudding extra sweet I like to add some fruit, mostly raspberries. You can add anything else you like: bananas, kiwi, cherries, blueberries, etc.
