Watermelon juice

I had to tell you about this simple yet amazing juice/smoothie. Summer is just around the corner so we can start preparing our summer recipes and get ready to celebrate the sun :)
This watermelon juice is a very simple way to eat/drink your watermelon, I can hardly even call it a recipe, it's more of an idea to inspire you to play with food, regardless of what your mother told you.
You can play with it even more and add some herbs, I like adding basil or mint, and you can also strain the smoothie to get a clearer juice, or leave it as is.
One thing to keep in mind is to serve it cold! So make sure you put the watermelon in the fridge. 

Watermelon Juice
Ingredients: (amounts are up to you and how thirsty you are)
Cold watermelon
Basil or mint (optional)

Directions:
  • Peel the watermelon and cut to slices.
  • Place the watermelon slices in your blender and add a few basil or mint leaves.
  • Blend the water melon. Now you have a watermelon smoothie ready to serve.
  • You can strain the smoothie for a clear juice, I personally prefer it as a smoothie.

Hope you enjoy your watermelon, and hope summer of 2017 will be epic. In the meantime, enjoy some Frampton.

Avocado on Toast

I'll be bringing you some quick and easy ideas from my kitchen, cause let's face it, most evenings we don't have the energy to cook a big meal, we just want to fix something up quickly and use our time to rest.
Modern day life is challenging, and most of the world still thinks being a vegan is just one more chore added to the list, well, with the ideas I'll be sharing each week, you'll see it's not the case, you can be a vegan and not waste hours in the kitchen.

my debut recipe is my Avocado on Toast - works like magic every time!

Avocado on Toast

Ingredients for 4 toasts:
4 nice fresh bread slices
Large avocado
2 medium tomatoes or 4 cherry tomatoes
1/2 lemon
pinch of salt and pepper

Directions:
  • Toast the bread slices in a toaster.
  • Peel the avocado and mash it in a bowl using a fork.
  • Add the juice of 1/2 a lemon, salt and pepper and mix.
  • Cut the tomatoes to thin slices.

Magical Smoothie - Banana Strawberry Blueberry

If you had enough with the one color boring smoothies, or you want to try something new, check out this recipe for lovely pink-purple smoothie you and your kids will love!

Banana Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

What you need:
5-7 fresh bananas (raw or frozen)
8 fresh strawberries
2 table spoons fresh or frozen blueberries
water

How it goes:
  • Peel the bananas and cut to big chunks
  • Blend half the amount of bananas with some water (water amount according to your own flavor, it can start with 2-3 table spoons for a thick smoothie, and up to half a cup of water)
  • Cut the strawberries to halves and place some of them in the inside of your jar, facing out (just like in the photo above)
  • Pour the blended banana mixture into your jar until you reach the middle of the jar height
  • Add the rest of the bananas to the blender, together with some more water (pour in more water than before so this mixture will be lighter and won't sink to the bottom of the jar as we want to create 2 layers)
  • Add in some blueberries (about 1 table spoon) to the blender, and blend
  • Pour the purple mixture into the jar
  • Add some fruit toppings - sliced banana, strawberry halves, blueberries
  • You can also add chia seeds, grind flex seeds and goji berries

Add your fruit toppings and enjoy!







Enjoy!
