Gluten and Dairy Free Blueberry and Pineapple Smoothie

Hello everyone

It is a busy week this week – it is my neice’s first birthday and also my birthday, she was my favourite birthday present last year!  This year I’m planning on making her a special cake, if it works out how I imagine it in my head I’ll share it on the website.  She was also kind enough to say she wanted a gluten and dairy free cake so I could share it with her – she is a generous baby that way!

Today’s recipe is possibly my favourite coloured smoothie I’ve ever made.  That shade of purple is my favourite colour, in fact as I sit on the train typing this I’m wearing shoes almost that exact colour.  Luckily it also tastes amazing as well – it is not just a pretty colour.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Raspberry Ginger Smoothie Bowl

Hello everyone

I hope you all had a great weekend.  I seemed to have one of those weekends, which despite best endeavours, wasn’t that productive.  Ollie cat has been poorly and ended up having to go in the bath and I dropped the pie shell I had just made for my strawberry tart.  It shattered into a million pieces – I think I’ll be finding digestive biscuit crumbs for the rest of my life.  Suppose some days are just like that!

I haven’t posted a breakfast recipe for a while – even though it is my favourite meal of the day.  As it has been so hot recently I’ve been enjoying cooling things for breakfast like this smoothie bowl.

Purple is my favourite colour so the pinky/purple colour of this smoothie bowl is right up my street.  It is really easy to make and you can top it with whatever fruit you like.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Don’t Be Blue Be Cherry Smoothie

Hello everyone

I feel like I’ve had a bit of an over indulgent few weeks of eating.  First I was on holiday to Germany and food a cake shop that did amazing gluten and dairy free gateaux so needless to say I could be found hanging around in there most days.

Then my buddy that loves food as much as I do visited for a few days and we did a good amount of eating out, takeaways and snacking.

To try and make up for that I’m going to go back to having a homemade smoothie for my morning snack at work all of next week.  I’ve kick started it with my Gluten and Dairy Free Don’t Be Blue Be Cherry Smoothie.

This delicious smoothie has a base of apple juice with cherries, blueberries and banana.  I’ve also added in a good handful of spinach so you can get your greens without realising.  I’m still like a child that way – you have to hide my vegetables to get me to eat them.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Creamy Orange & Mango Smoothie

Hello everyone

I spent a few hours going through the recipes that I needed to share on the website – this one falls into the category of being typed up but missing a photograph.  I try to be organised but I have recipes and photos all over the place – things written on spare pieces of paper in a folder, some in a notebook and some typed up on my computer.  I also have a  mix on the computer of recipes typed up with no photographs and edited photographs with no recipes. I’m planning on spending the next few weeks sorting through everything rather than keeping working on new things.

Today’s recipe is for this simple but delicious smoothie – very creamy from the banana and dairy free natural yoghurt.  Smoothies came to popularity in California beaches in the mid 1960s and were traditionally made from ice, orange juice and strawberries.  They replaced milkshakes, flavoured with fruit syrups, in popularity due to the invention and mass marketing of the blender.  It wasn’t until years later that smoothie varieties expanded to include dairy, vegetables and a wide variety of fruit.

Enjoy!
