Guidelines to Smoothie Making

Smoothie making isn’t as easy as it sounds and some people may struggle with never making the perfect smoothie; I know I used to. I’d thrown in a bunch of ingredients, but never end up with that sweet and fruity flavour I was aiming for. The truth it, it can be complicated, especially when you’re adding varieties of ingredients. Here I have made a short list of guidelines to assist you in your smoothie making.

*side note* I ALWAYS use frozen bananas in my smoothies. It gives a better texture, makes the smoothie colder, and it even makes it taste better! I highly recommend freezing bananas for smoothies. Click here to see banana prep.

1. Amounts and Ratios
Some people believe that in order to make a smoothie you just throw a bunch of fruit into a blender, add some water or milk, and hope for the best. However this is not the case. You need to measure your ingredients properly, and have a perfect ratio of flavours for your end result. For instance; if you’re making a strawberry banana smoothie, I wouldn’t advise putting 3 bananas, and 2 strawberries. You have to even it out so that the flavours are prevalent throughout the smoothie. I would suggest the more banana you put in, the more strawberries. Ex. 3 bananas, 6-8 strawberries. Or if you’re making a green smoothie, 3 bananas, 1 handful of spinach or kale, and half a cup or more of water.

1 01d62. Consistency
The same idea goes for adding liquids. If you are aiming for a thicker smoothie, add less liquid. Most people prefer their smoothies liquidy and more drinkable, so I’d advise adding more water/almond milk to ensure that consistency. But be careful not to add TOO much liquid, for you still want to have that smoothie texture.

IMG_95093. Ingredients
Smoothies all depend on the ingredients you put into them. You have to think and carefully choose what ingredients you want to add to your smoothie. Think about flavours that go well together like banana and strawberry, or chocolate and peanut butter. Don’t go crazy and just pour everything you have in your fridge into one smoothie because you want to fit as much as you can in there. Even a simple smoothie that only has 2-3 ingredients can still be a good one. Chances are the more you add to it and the more complex you make it, the less great it will taste. I know this from experience by trying to make a green smoothie with 7 ingredients. Now i just stick with 3 and I’m golden.

IMG_81664. Mixing flavours
That brings me to my last point: mixing flavours. I know it sounds obvious, but some people still do it. You have to know which flavours go together and which one’s don’t. Everyone makes smoothies differently, but personally, I wouldn’t add preferably strong fruity flavours like orange and pineapple, to a chocolate smoothie. If you are making a chocolate smoothies, keep it simple with just banana, almond milk, cacao powder, peanut butter, and water. When I make chocolate date smoothies, I add a few dates and 1-2 strawberries just for that extra flavour. The same idea applies to fruity smoothies. Don’t add super sweet or dessert flavours like chocolate and peanut butter to a strawberry pineapple smoothie because the flavours will clash.

IMG_8554Hopefully if you stick to these four simple guidelines, you will be able to perfect the art of smoothie making and end up with a sweet and tasty drink!

Shoutout to my dad who made a smoothie with 1 banana, 8 strawberries, greek yogurt, cacao powder and pineapple. According to my mother, It was too thick and didn’t taste good. But kudos for trying paps ❤  This one’s for you.

PS. since that incident he has been practicing and learning how to create better smoothies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pancakes

Do you like pancakes? Do you like cookie dough? Well then, I don’t see why you wouldn’t love these pancakes! Soft and gooey with melt in your mouth chocolate, these pancakes are healthy, vegan and gluten free!

IMG_0032Many people ask the question: “are oats gluten free?”.  Anything that contains wheat has gluten in it. Luckily, pure grown oats are wheat and gluten free. Unfortunately some commercially processed oats have been contaminated during the growing and harvesting processing stages. If you don’t want gluten in your oats, make sure you read the label or buy gluten free oats.

These pancakes taste like soft chocolate chip cookies. The flax-seed meal gives them a gooey texture and when I was licking the bowl it tasted just like cookie dough. I rate these an A++ in taste.

IMG_0039Onto the recipe…

You will need: oat flour, flax-seed meal, coconut sugar or a substitute sugar, brown sugar, 1 ripe banana, almond milk, vanilla extract, pure maple syrup, and all natural peanut butter.

1.  In a large mixing bowl, pour 1 cup of oat flour, and 1/2 cups of flax-seed meal (make sure you buy ground flax-seed meal to get the full nutritional value)

2. In a blender or magic bullet, break up and add 1 ripe banana and 1/2 cups of almond milk

3. Blend it together really well, then pour it into your bowl.

4. Add 1/2 cup of water and stir in really well. You may need more water if your mix is too thick and dry. You want to make it liquidy

5. Add in 2 tbsp. of coconut sugar and 2 tbsp. of brown sugar. (If you don’t have coconut sugar you can just use 4 tbsp. of brown sugar)

6. Add in 1 tbsp. of vanilla extract and 1 tsp. of all natural peanut butter

7. Finally, add in 1 tbsp. of pure maple syrup.

8. Mix everything together really well, and like I said above, make sure it’s more liquidy rather than thick.

9. Add in vegan chocolate chips, stir mix them in well.

10. Grease your pan with coconut oil which should be set to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. You may need to turn up the heat a bit as they are cooking. Just make sure they don’t burn.

10. Cook them until they are brown and cooked. They will have a soft and flimsy texture.

This should make 10-12 regular sized pancakes. I topped mine with strawberries, bananas, and pure maple syrup.

Organic Burst Review

Many of you have probably heard of Organic Burst. They are a company based in the UK that sells organic super foods and powders. I see their products around Instagram all the time, so I thought it was time to check them out. Ekaterina was kind enough to send me 5 bottles of their organic powders!

IMG_0558These powders have amazing scientifically proven benefits for the skin, fighting sugar cravings, detox, anti-ageing, hormonal balance, exercise performance and more. Their products are loved by the celebrity health, beauty and fitness experts and have been featured in the leading media such as Vogue, Elle, The Times, Sunday Times Style, Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Sun, Grazia and more.

Their products are 100% pure and organic superfoods that are super high in many nutrients, so they are natural alternatives to multivitamins supplements. Each of their chosen superfoods has an amazing history- spirulina was cultivated by the Aztec, maca was taken by the Inca, and the Pharaohs of Egypt took wheatgrass for rejuvenation.

They source from small ethical organic producers all over the world and manufacture in the UK to the highest quality standards. Organic Burst superfoods are a higher quality grade than many conventional superfood brands – with very high levels of potency and purity, UK pharmaceutical grade standard, free from heavy metals, toxins, pesticides, herbicides, fillers or additives and each batch tested in an independent laboratory in the UK.

IMG_0556I’ve heard so much about acai berries and acai powders, but believe it or not, I have never tried it. So as soon as the package came in, the first thing I made was an acai berry bowl.

2014-04-10 001 2014-04-10 008In my blender I added 2 frozen bananas, a handful of raspberries, and broke open 4 capsules of acai (4 is the recommended serving per day) and blended it all together. This beautiful creation was the outcome. It tasted delicious and was packed with super foods and anti-oxidants.

Acai is an Amazonian berry that does wonders for the skin and body. It has one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruit and vegetables ever tested by science – up to 8 times that of blueberries and 10 to 30 times that of red wine. Its powerful antioxidants, polyphenols and Vitamin E, help slow down the effects of ageing by protecting our cells from degeneration.

IMG_0554Another super food I’ve heard many things about is Maca. It has been used in Peru for endurance, energy and hormonal balance for over 2000 years. Maca root is known as the Peruvian Ginseng due to the variety and density of its minerals: calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, silica and zinc.

I made chocolate Maca oatmeal. I cooked my oats, added 1 tsp of brown sugar, 1 tsp of cacao powder, and 1 tsp of Maca powder. I also added chia seeds, peanut butter and some fruit! Oh, and I drizzled it with some of my homemade vegan chocolate sauce.

2014-04-19 001 2014-04-19 0012014-04-19 001 2014-04-19 002Next I decided to take the Maca powder and pair it with another powerful super food: Wheatgrass.

Organic Burst Wheatgrass is a 100% pure, organic, green wonder-food from a multi-award winning UK brand. Humans have been consuming wheatgrass for over 5000 years, dating back to the Pharaohs of Egypt. It’s well known for its detoxifying and cleansing properties. It contains chlorophyll, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, enzymes and energy-metabolising minerals. Their wheatgrass is organically grown and carefully dried, preserving all its nutrients.

I made these smoothies for my dad and I. I know what you’re probably thinking – they look like grass. But I promise you, they were DELICIOUS! And if you are a health freak like me, or even someone who appreciates nutrition, you will believe me. (Because green smoothies are the bomb) They are simply 4 frozen bananas, lots of spinach, 1-2 tsp. of peanut butter, 1 tsp. of Maca powder, 1 tsp. of Wheatgrass powder, and water!

IMG_0158The fourth powder I tried was Spirulina. Spirulina is a blue-green microscopic plant that has existed on our planet for 3.6 billion years and served as a source of nourishment to many civilizations. It has a full spectrum of nutrients that nourish the body and mind: beta-carotene, iron, calcium, magnesium, Vitamin B complex, chlorophyll, complete protein, GLA and more.

Organic Burst Spirulina is grown organically in clean, freshwater ponds, free of toxins, chemicals or pesticides. Thanks to these strict conditions, their spirulina powder is a completely pure, easily digested, and has a pleasant taste.

I created a beautiful coloured smoothie that included: 3 frozen bananas, blueberries, almond milk, and 1 tsp of Spirulina.

spirulina The last powder I tried was Baobab. Baobab fruit powder is a powerful new superfood and Africa’s best-kept secret until now. It’s known as the “Tree of Life” and has been cherished by locals across the African continent for centuries. It has a unique nutritional profile, with more Vitamin C than oranges, more iron than red meat and a rich content of alkalising minerals: calcium, potassium and magnesium.

I made a green smoothie that was 2 frozen bananas, 1 tsp. of peanut butter, a handful of spinach, 1 tsp. of Baobab, 1 tsp. of Wheatgrass, and 1 cup of water!

2014-04-18 002 2014-04-18 006This smoothie was so good and refreshing that my parents even asked for some so I had to make more. You know Organic Burst is good when the whole family wants some.

2014-04-18 002 2014-04-18 007Organic Burst is a wonderful company that has some amazing products. I will for sure being using these in every smoothie I make. You can also add them to oatmeal, pancakes, cookies, brownies, quinoa; virtually anything. They are all powders, except for the Acai which is capsules, but you can open them and use the powder inside. They are fun, healthy, and make a great super food.

Family Eating Update

Hi everyone and happy Easter weekend! I finished my first year of University yesterday and I’m back at home all unpacked. I am so exhausted today but that didn’t stop me from doing some smoothie making and vegan baking. We’re having Easter dinner on Sunday so I’ve been brainstorming some ideas I can make for the family that doesn’t involve harming any animals. Comment some ideas below if you have some 🙂

2014-04-15 006 2014-04-15 002Anyways, I am writing in here now to give a little update on my families eating habits. I wrote a post last week called Plant Based Diet Challenge where I talked about how I got my parents to watch Forks over Knives, a really good documentary about the plant based diet, and even got them to go vegan for 3 days.

Since that post,  my father has been improving his eating habits and incorporating more plant based foods into his diet. I cant say how proud this makes me and how happy I am to make a change in the world, even if it’s only a small one. Vegan’s save almost 200 animals per year. Just myself not eating meat is already a change enough. But the more people I can get to stop eating meat or even cut back on their meat consumption can help as well. Change has to start somewhere, and even if it’s only one person, it makes me happy knowing I am making a difference.

Not to mention the health benefits. Forks over Knives focuses on how much better a plant based diet it is for the human body, including statistics like ‘vegan’s have a 50% lower chance of developing cancer than people who eat meat’.

2014-04-12 002 2014-04-12 001I came home from school yesterday to discover my dad has been cutting up and freezing bananas (like me) for his smoothies. He’s been having one everyday, and even making salads and cutting back on his meat/dairy/egg consumption. He says it’s easier when I am around because I always keep the fridge stocked with whole foods and I’m available to make meals for him.

2014-04-18 002 2014-04-18 016This morning I made a green smoothie and my parents both asked for some, so I made more. I told them I’d be happy to make them food whenever, as long as there are groceries available for me to make stuff!

2014-04-18 002 2014-04-18 011The toughest person to change however is my brother. He is 17 and does not eat well at all. It makes me quite angry, but I know I can’t control everyone – I just want to help, that’s all. And eating a plant based diet not only helps the consumer, but also the animals AND this planet.

2014-04-06 007 2014-04-06 008But last night and this morning, my brother has made smoothies AND he has put almond milk in it! Okay, he still puts regular milk in it too, but I’m hoping since he’s currently adding both that he will soon be able to omit the cow’s milk and permanently switch to almond milk! Eek, so exciting. My mom also told me she’s been using my almond milk as well! 😀

If you are a vegan or vegetarian who faces similar circumstances, comment below; I’d love to hear about it! Also, I found a ‘vegan save’ calculator which tells you the amount of animals you’ve saved and how much CO2 you’ve prevented from going into the atmosphere. I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 months now, so I’ve saved: 84 animals, 81 pounds of meat, and 670 pounds of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.  WOW, that puts the biggest smile on my face. Want to calculate your vegan save? Click here.

Have a great long weekend everyone!

Healthy Banana Split

My dad always complains that I never make him any food. Since I eat a plant based vegan diet, I often am making tons of food for myself, and none for my family because they don’t always eat the same foods as me.

But lately I’ve been getting my family, especially my dad, to eat more of the foods I do. I love baking and cooking and making different foods for everyone! So since my dad had been complaining, I decided to whip him up something so he would no longer have anything to complain about.

IMG_0251What you’re looking at is a completely healthy, 100% vegan and gluten free banana split. I know right? Hard to believe such a gorgeous piece of food can be so nutritious. My dad sure didn’t think so when I presented this to him. “How can this be healthy?” he asked. Haha, well let me tell you.

IMG_0254All that is on this plate is simply banana, peanut butter, some fruit, nuts, and vegan chocolate. It’s seriously not as complicated as it looks. But oh boy was it delicious.

IMG_0272Here’s what you’ll need: 4 frozen bananas, 1 regular banana, all natural peanut butter, cacao powder, raspberries, strawberries, vegan chocolate chips, vegan brownies, almonds, cashews, muesli or granola.

Let’s begin with the ice cream.

Strawberry
1. In a blender or food processor, add 2 frozen bananas. *remember to cut up and freeze your ripe bananas 4-5 hours prior to blending them. You get a better taste, temperature and texture.*

2. Add in a few raspberries, more or less depending on how pink you want it

3. Add in a bit of almond milk. I didn’t really measure, just poured a bit, blended it, poured a little bit more.

4. Once everything is blended and you have a smoothie/nana ice cream texture, put it into a tupperware container and stick it in the freezer. You will do this with both flavours for at least 4-5 hours to make ICE CREAM!

Chocolate
4. In a blender, add 2 bananas, 1 tsp. of all natural peanut butter, and 1-2 tsp. of cacao powder.

5. Add a bit of almond milk, and blend everything together so you have a thick creamy smoothie texture.

6. Pour it into a container and freeze it with the other one.

IMG_0269*fast forwards 4-5 hours*

7. Remove your frozen ice cream from the freezer. It may not be frozen all the way. If not, freeze it for longer. Or if you’re impatient like me, you can remove them anyways (what I did) and just work with what you got!

8. Cut open one ripe banana through the center, put it on a plate and spread all natural peanut butter on both sides.

9. Scoop on some chocolate and strawberry ice cream.

10. Throw everything single healthy thing in your pantry on there. I’m talkin strawberries, almonds, cashews, vegan brownies, muesli or granola, and vegan chocolate chips!

11. Drizzle on some homemade vegan chocolate sauce.

VCSServes 1 person (or 2 if you’re cute like me and try to split it). Eat right away before your plate of deliciousnes melts.

Vegan French Toast

Okay, so my E-book Journey to a Good Life has been out for quite a while now. It includes a 10 page description of my personal workout from home, 25 healthy recipes, foods to buy, meal plans, vegan and vegetarian meal ideas, and behind the scene photos. I haven’t released any of the recipes that are in my E-book onto my blog because well, that would defeat the purpose of having it. One of the recipes in my E-book is vegan french toast. It’s healthy, gluten free, and ever so delicious. I think that it’s time for me to share this one.

IMG_9746Ladies and gentlemen… here is the recipe for my vegan french toast, exclusive right from my E-book.

What you’ll need: Almond milk, 2 ripe bananas, cinnamon, whole grain brain or bread of choice, fruit, pure maple syrup, and a blender.
Prep time: 10 minutes.

1. Preheat the stove or skillet to 350 degrees.

2. Break up and put 2 ripe bananas into a blender or magic bullet.

3. Add in 1/2 cups of vanilla almond milk.

4. Add 2 tsp. of vanilla extract

5. Add 1 tsp. of cinnamon

6. Blend everything together so there’s no chunks, and pour it into a bowl. You may or may not need more almond milk, depending on how much base you want to use. If you want more base, add more almond milk.

7. Grease the pan with coconut oil.

8. Dip whole grain bread (or bread of your choice) into the mix, and put it on the skillet or pan.

9. Cook until it’s brown and no longer soggy, and flip.

10. This should be enough to make 6 pieces of french toast.

Top with fresh fruit such as strawberries, banana, kiwi, pineapple and blueberries, and add pure maple syrup for best results.

Hope you guys enjoy it! For more recipes in my E-book, click here.

Square Bar Review

Over the years I have tried many different granola bars and energy bars that are labelled as healthy and nutritious. I now know that those bars are quite the contrary. Companies label and sell their bars as nutritious, but really they are packed with tons of additives and GMO’s that make them so bad for you. The reason they sell is because they are advertised as nutritious, and they are packed with refined sugars that make them so sweet and addictive.

Since switching to a whole foods plant based diet, I haven’t came across any great nutrition bars. That is until I heard of Square Bar.

IMG_9964Square Bar is a company run by husband and wife Sarah and Andrew Gordon. Sarah battled asthma for most of her life, and it was only after she cut out inflammatory foods like gluten, dairy, soy and processed sugars that she began feeling better.

They created these bars that are vegan, free of refined sugar, and GMO free! I was so thrilled to hear about a company that promoted such a whole, organic product. I couldn’t wait to try it – so when Sarah sent me over these bars, I tried them right away.

2014-04-05 005 2014-04-05 008All three flavours were light and sweet! They are all made with cocoa so if you like that, you’ll love all the flavours. My favourite was Cocoa Coconut which had both hints of cocoa and coconut, two amazing flavours.

The thing I like most about these bars is that they are all natural. They contain all plant based ingredients so they are safe for vegan’s, and they don’t use any artificial flavours or additives. Now a days people believe it is impossible to create something so good without any of those things, but Andrew and Sarah did it!

2014-04-09 001 2014-04-09 018“Squarebar launched March 2012 at Natural Products Expo West and is now nationally distributed… growth built on the notion that #IngredientsMatterMost. Don’t get us wrong, we love balanced nutrition facts as much as the next food label reader… we just believe in knowing where those facts come from, because they’re not all created equal. Best to start with nutrient-dense, sustainable, and let’s not forget yummy, whole food ingredients for happier snacking!”

Thanks so much Andrew and Sarah, these bars were awesome! For more information visit their site: http://www.squarebar.com/

Spinach Pancakes

You could say one of my favourite things to do is experiment in the kitchen – especially with pancakes. I have so many different pancake recipes now, I have a hard time choosing which one I want to make in the morning. But oops, I did it again. I created yet another pancake recipe. And like the sweet potato pancakes, these ones contain a vegetable as well; a leafy green.

IMG_9672Spinach is awesome. Spinach is one of the best super foods for your body. It contains almost every single vitamin and nutrient you need, and gives you so much energy for your day. So when I thought about making pancakes, I thought, what better way to make healthy pancakes than with none other than the world’s best super food – SPINACH!

IMG_9634Spinach pancakes everybody. Take it all in. I know what most people are thinking – mostly because my brother was one of those people. “Ew, spinach in pancakes? That’s disgusting” or “Pancakes …. why are they green!?”

Well fear not my friends, I assure you that you can’t even taste the spinach. I use spinach all the time in my smoothies, and it doesn’t have a distinct or gross flavour. It just adds colour – and a ton of vitamins and nutrients. So don’t let these pancakes scare you – they’re awesome.

IMG_96511. Start off by preheating your stove top of skillet to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a magic bullet or blender, add 1 ripe banana and 1 handful of spinach.

3. Add 1/2 cups of water and blend it together for 30 seconds

4. In a large mixing bowl, add 1 and 1/2 cups of oats

5. Pour the green smoothie contents from the blender into the bowl and stir it in

6. Add 1/4 coconut sugar and 2 tsp. of peanut butter

7. Add 2 tsp. of pure maple syrup and 1 tsp of vanilla extract.

8. Add 1/2 cups of almond milk. If your mix is too thick, simply add more liquids to get it to a thinner consistency.

9. Grease your pan with coconut oil

10. Cook until they look ready.

The batch should make about 10 regular sized pancakes. I topped mine with banana, strawberries, vegan chocolate chips, and pure maple syrup.

Plant Based Diet Challenge

Over the weekend I asked my parents to watch the documentary “Forks over Knives” with me. It’s a movie that explains the importance of a plant based diet, and how it not only helps your body, but also cures and reverses many sicknesses and diseases. In a world where heart disease and obesity are the number one killers, it is up to us to find natural, homeopathic remedies to heal our bodies.

After watching the film, I asked my parents if they would be willing to try to go vegan for 3 days and only eat whole plant foods. My mother said she’d try, but wouldn’t switch completely. My father though, surprised me the most by saying he would be willing to try to go fully vegan for 3 days. He also smokes daily so he has been trying to cut back on that, so now he is trying to only have 1 cigarette at 7pm.

To help them with this challenge, I said I would prepare their meals for them, and teach them how to make certain things.

Day 1
I made us bowls of oatmeal with fruit, nuts, hemp hearts, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, and chocolate brownie nut butter from Sweet Spreads.

2014-04-05 001 2014-04-05 003For lunch I made us green smoothie bowls that included: frozen bananas, pineapple, spinach, peanut butter, and water. Topped with pineapple, muesli, banana, hemp hearts, chia seeds, and a strawberry.

2014-04-05 004 2014-04-05 001For dinner we made a group effort and together we made a cous cous strifry with tons of vegetables, along with baked potatoes.

2014-04-05 002 2014-04-05 0142014-04-05 002 2014-04-05 011Day 2

I was busy in the kitchen making two kinds of pancakes for breakfast: sweet potato and spinach.

IMG_9678For lunch I whipped up a delicious smoothie in the blender: frozen banana, strawberries, dates, cacao powder, peanut butter and water.

2014-04-06 003 2014-04-06 017For Sunday night dinner, I prepared a delicious meal: kale and quinoa salad, sweet potato fries, broccoli and spinach. My brother was cooking lamb for himself and my grandpa, but my mother, father and I all stuck to our delicious plate of whole foods.

2014-04-06 007 2014-04-06 006Day 3

For breakfast I made vegan french toast (the recipe is in my E-book) and my parents loved it!

2014-04-07 005 2014-04-07 002For lunch I made green juices and smoothies. The smoothies included frozen banana, spinach, peanut butter and water. The juice was kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, Macintosh apple, strawberries, frozen banana, and water.

2014-04-07 003 2014-04-07 002Since I made so much food for Sunday night’s dinner, Monday nights dinner was just left overs!

2014-04-06 007 2014-04-06 007

That pretty much sums up the three day plant based diet challenge. It was a pretty fun experience for both my parents and I. I was busy in the kitchen making lots of foods, and they were gaining a new experience by trying all of these things. My dad even said that after today, he’s not going to go completely vegan, but he’d like to stick with mainly plant based foods, but still be able to have his regular food, but with smaller portions.

On Sunday night when we were eating dinner, my brother and grandpa only had meat on their plate – no greens! It was terrible.. I cringed a little bit. We tried to get them to eat some but they refused. My dad now says that rather than having his plate 80% meat and 20% veggies, he wants to have it the other way around.

I’m glad I was able to share this with them and introduce them, even if just a little bit, to a whole and healthy lifestyle. If you haven’t watched the documentary Forks over Knives, I highly recommend it.

Ps. All new foods you see in this post will be on my blog with a recipe within the week!

Here are some extra photos from the past 3 days.

 

2014-04-03 002 2014-04-03 004

All this for only $19! Except for the bananas – I got them separately. Included in that is kale, spinach, broccoli, asparagus, sweet potato, oranges, apple, kiwi, and strawberries.
