Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Chocolate, I love it. Milk, dark, even white chocolate – which is in fact not even chocolate at all. If I’m having a cheat meal, give me Ben & Jerry’s Baked Alaska or Milka Oreo and I’m one happy girl. But as we all know, this is far from healthy. Once in a while it’s ok,…

Beetroot Pear Thyme Juice

Beetroot juice is one of my favourite juices, next to the classic ginger-carrot-apple juice. Traditionally, people use beet juice to heal the skin, detoxify the liver, it would prevent tiredness and it may kill fungi, because it’s a strong antioxidant and has anti inflammatory properties. Besides all these benefits, the taste is really good too,…

Smoothie // Pineapple + Avocado + Superfoods

Good morning sunshines! Did you know that starting everyday with a green smoothie makes you feel awesome? No? Well, now you do. The past week I’ve been juice detoxing (with the 7 lbs in 7 days app by Jason Vale, which I recommend to all of you!) and I feel like a super human. Really. My…

Juicy // Detoxing Aloe Vera Orange Juice

A fresh pressed juice doesn’t need to be that complicated. You really don’t need all those different veggies and superfoods in your juice everyday. Sometimes I like to keep things simple. Organic fresh oranges and some home grown freshly harvested Aloe Vera gel, for example.

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

This smoothie is one of my new favourites. It’s creamy, sweet, filling, healthy and.. well what else would you want?! 😉 For one big glass you need: 200 ml / 1 cup cold (nut)milk 1 frozen banana 1 handful chopped pumpkin 1 ts pumpkin spice 1/2 ts cinnamon powder 1 handful superfoods (mix) 1 tbs…

Smoothie // Kaki Fruit + Cinnamon + Superfooods

Did you ever try kaki fruit (sharon fruit / persimmon)? It’s perfect for smoothies! Kaki fruits are sweet, and slightly tangy with a soft to occasionally fibrous texture – the taste reminds me of a combination between dates, papaya & mango. Sounds good eh? Try out this easy creamy smoothie…

Review // Slow Juicer vs. Fast Juicer

I think I just met my new green love. The Hurom HF Slow Juicer. It’s my first ever slow juicer and I can tell you, it’s a big difference compared to my normal juicer. The juice I used to make with my ‘normal’ fast juicer – the Bosch MES3000 – produced much more vegetable pulp,…
