Recipe: Berry & Banana Vegan Smoothie

It’s been a busy start to the week, feeling a little flat this morning after another late night so I’ve made a energising smoothie for breakfast.

Add to a blender: Frozen banana, blueberry, raspberry, rice protein powder and soy milk (or chilled water).

I usually put barley grass powder in as well, but ran out and the wild turkeys ate my spinach yesterday so none of that to put in today. I love smoothies because they are quick and easy to make, delicious (almost like an dessert for breakfast 😉) and there really is no excuse not to have one as they pack and go in a jar so even on my most hectic morning I can have it in the car.

One of my favourite views in Holland was the house boats down the canals. I was there in winter, the light was soft and no wind.

I grow nasturtiums for their edible peppery leaves and flowers as well as their great pest warding off capabilities. Their buds are just so perfect when looking through a macro lens.

Telescope Adventures

I was on a road trip from Queensland to South Australia. I stopped off in Coonabarabran for the night because I’d heard about an amazing place to see the stars, the Warrumbungle Observatory. Peter there was an incredible source of information, and allowed me to get some shots using my SLR on the telescope. It was just so fascinating, I did not even notice the freezing temperatures!

I got a macro lens, macro is one of my favourite forms of photography, this was a beautiful jasmine flower on my back fence in the sunlight.

Recipe: Banana & Barley Grass Smoothie

This is my favourite smoothie. Banana was my first solid food as a baby and I’ve been addicted ever since! I freeze between 1-2 kg of banana a week, more if I have friends/people coming over as you can make so much with them, including ‘ice cream’!! #yum

In the blender I put 3 frozen bananas, one table spoon of barley grass powder and half a glass of soy milk. I don’t always do the soy, and just add chilled water.

I add the barley grass to get some secret greens to my diet. It’s filled with lots of goodies. Depending on the brand usually it’s 24-27% percent protein, it is known to have 500% more Vitamin C than an orange, 200% the Calcium of cows milk, 500% more iron than spinach and steak, 200% the fibre of bran! I’ve found if I keep it one tablespoon to three bananas you can not taste any ‘grassy’ flavour. I may love my veggies, but I am not quite up for the grass taste!
