Beautiful Breakfast

Raw Green Smoothie Bowl

Refreshing, filling, and beautiful to prepare; once you can get over the fluorescent green!

To make this breakfast, add to a blender:

  • Five chunks of frozen spinach
  • Half a frozen banana (note: it helps before you freeze banana to chop them into chunks to make it easier to blend)
  • Splash of almond milk
  • Cinnamon

To top:

  • Green-tea infused chia seeds (mix chia seeds in cold green tea and leave over night). I also added some of this to the blender.
  • Frozen pomegranate
  • Cinnamon



Banana Berry Smoothie

You can buy affordable frozen fruit at the supermarket which is easy to store until you need it. If you use frozen fruit over fresh, look forward to a colder, almost milkshake sort of texture!

-Frozen/Fresh blueberries

-Frozen/Fresh strawberries

-Frozen/Fresh banana

-Natural low fat yoghurt

-Almond milk

-Pinch of cinnamon

-Optional: To bulk it out, throw in a hand full of oats

Green Apple, Spinach & Cucumber Morning Smoothie

Another delicious smoothie combination: Simply add to your blender and you’re good to go!

What you need:

-Frozen Raspberries

-Frozen Blackberries

-Frozen Cranberries

-Frozen Blueberries

-1/2 a Frozen Banana

– Splash of Almond Milk


Blueberry & Almond Milk Smoothie

One of the best investments that I have ever made has been my smoothie maker! I love using frozen fruits in my smoothies; it gives them that icy, ‘ice cream’ like feeling. One of my favourite ‘pick me up’ smoothies has to be this blueberry and almond milk combination.

In your blender, simply combine:

-A handful of frozen blueberries

-A splash of almond milk

-If you wish to thicken it up: half a banana

-2 tablespoons of natural yoghurt

Green Shakshuka Eggs

I got my inspiration for this dish after having the delicious ‘Green Breakfast’ at Jack’s Wife Freda in New York. By no means is this a replica of their fantastic dish, but it is a ‘green’ alternative to the tomatoey, Middle-Eastern meal.

What will you need?

-Olive oil (2 tablespoons)

-1 leek

-Fresh spinach

-Herbs: bunch of dill, parsley, mint, coriander

-2 cloves of garlic

-Salt and pepper

-4 eggs


-Natural yoghurt

What do I do?

  1. Heat olive oil in a small frying pan on moderate heat.
  2. Add leeks to soften, followed by the spinach (a small bunch of leaves at a time).
  3. Keep adding the spinach slowly, until all has been softened and wilted, followed by some fresh herbs.
  4. Quickly remove the pan from the heat. Add the crushed garlic, salt and pepper.
  5. Once seasoned to your liking, heat up the spinach (etc.) again on a low heat, and create two little wells with a spoon. Add some cracked pepper to these wells and crack two eggs into each well. Cover the pan.
  6. Leave until eggs are cooked but the yolk is still runny. Serve with yoghurt, sprinkled with paprika!

3 Ingredient Banana Oat Pancakes

Super simple and super delicious! You only need three things: an egg, oats, and a ripe banana!

So how do I make these gems?

First, mash together half of the banana with half a cup of oats, and then combine with egg. If you wish, add cinnamon to give that extra flavour. I won’t lie; this definitely works better if you can be bothered to blend together first. Spray a pan lightly with oil (coconut oil gives it a yummy coconut flavour), pour in batter, and gently cook. Make sure not to have the heat up too high though, or it’ll burn!
