Salted Caramel + Banana Chiller

Difficulty: Easy Serves 2 Warmer weather is here and whether I like it or not, it's time to get used to it. I've teamed up with my pals at Nature's Charm yet again to hit you with the ultimate chill recipe for summer; my Salted Caramel + Banana Chiller. I love the range of coconut sauces by Nature's Charm because they are so bloody versatile. Chuck 'em on top of ice cream, dip fruit into 'em or even eat it straight from the spoon (I won't tell) but my fave way to use these sauces is adding them to smoothies and shakes to add a touch of sweetness and a whole lotta flavour! Ingredients 1/2 can Nature's Charm Coconut Whipping Cream, refrigerated for 8+...

Secret Green + Cacao Smoothie

Difficulty: Easy Serves: 2 There are greens in this smoothie. You wouldn't know it though because the sometimes unpleasant greeny taste is covered up by the much more pleasurable chocolatey taste of raw cacao.

Ingredients 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1/4 cup water 2 small, ripe bananas 2 handfuls baby spinach leaves 1/4 cup raw cacao powder 1 tablespoon vegan sweetener (optional) 2 cups non-dairy milk Raw chocolate to serve (optional) Method In a small cup, whisk together the chia seeds and water. Set aside until it thickens. Chop up the bananas and chuck them in your blender...

Cherry Banana Smoothie

Difficulty: Easy Makes 1 large smoothie or 2 small smoothies So smooth that Rob Thomas and Santana wrote a song about it. If you pay attention to my Instagram, you'll know that recently I made the best smoothie of my life. It seems like a pretty big call, and it is, especially for someone who ain't too fussed on smoothies in the first place. The best thing about it? It takes a few minutes to throw together and all of the ingredients are things you should already have lying around. Ingredients 1 large banana 10 fresh cherries 1/2 cup crushed ice 1 1/2 cups soy milk 1 tablespoon maple syrup 1/4 cup coconut yoghurt (I used Nudie Vanilla Coconut 'cos it's vegan now!) Method Rip up the banana and chuck it into...

Berry Breakfast Smoothie

Difficulty: Easy Makes one large smoothie or two small ones Now the warmer weather is kickin' in, I don't really feel like a lot for breakfast, especially if it takes a lot of time and effort to put it together. This berry breakfast smoothie is the perfect breakfast solution because it's quick, easy, filling and good for you while tasting bloody bitchin'.
