YUM! Alkalising Smoothie.

Have only just started to understand the concept of having a more alkaline system, opposed to an acidic. There's nothing more refreshing that alkalising smoothies too!

This is reposted from Osha Key


3 ripe bananas
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 cups shredded kale
2 teaspoons spirulina
1 inch fresh ginger
Pinch of each: cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg
1.5 cup water (or to your liking)


Add all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. 

Cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg not only make the smoothie taste amazing, but also contribute to the anti-inflammatory effect of this amazing drink. Plus, cinnamon helps balance blood sugar levels which is vital for staying energized all day long.

Off the hook.

Raw vegan choc/peanut energy balls.

1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup peanuts (I used natural peanut butter that I made at my local health food store that was fresh _ crunchy)
1/2 cup cacao beans
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 coconut oil 
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt (conventional salt/table salt is actually poison, it is so processed these days that you need to stay away from it)
3 un-pitted medjool dates 
2 handfuls of amaranth puffs (to roll balls in)

Blend raw cashews and peanuts (if not already in a crunchy butter form) in a blender until it has a crunchy butter-like texture, then add all other ingredients except for the amaranth puffs, and continue to process. 

I added a tiny drizzle of filtered water (use cool boiled water if you don't have a filter) about three times to help my blender out when things got too sticky, but see how you go, ultimately you want a sticky but relatively smooth texture so you can roll it into balls.

Spread the amaranth puffs out on a plate or chopping board, scoop mixture out of blender with a spoon and roll into balls. Roll balls in amaranth puffs and then place in glass container in the fridge to set. 

This recipe makes about 12 balls, they are such a great afternoon pick me up treat, enjoy!

S  A  L  T   

Why you should never use conventional salt ( table salt ):
'Your table salt is actually 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents, and iodine. Dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, the excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt'  (info taken from this page). / MAKE SURE YOU USE PURE SEA SALT, I PREFER PINK HIMALAYAN SALT FROM MY LOCAL ORGANIC STORE – shop around to get an idea of pricing first so you don't spend too much on your salt just because it in comes in a fancy jar with a fancy sticker, unless you're into that, which to be honest I sometimes am.
