Mornings have to be one of my favorite times of the day, especially when they involve pancakes! For the majority of the time, I tend to have easy stuff for breakfast, like smoothies, smoothie bowls, porridge or granola/muesli, but occasionally I’ll sneak in a “treat breakfast”, and recently it was these tasty Chocolate Banana Pancakes.
These pancakes are pretty easy to make. It’s just a matter of throwing all the ingredients into your blender or nutribullet, blending and then there you have it – perfect plant based pancake batter, ready to go. Continue reading
Hope you’re all easing into the New Year well. It’s been beautiful weather here in Nelson. The sun’s been shining brightly these last couple days and the cool, refreshing breeze has been a breath of fresh air. I love this time of year, so much! I love getting out on the weekends, going on unknown adventures, and being immersed in nature. The sun kissed glow to the skin is always welcomed.

Now, I must admit, I may have a mild obsession with this particular nut. From hazelnut butter to toasted hazelnuts, to hazelnuts staring in delicious recipes – like this Chocolate Hazelnut Smoothie, I love love love them! Continue reading

It has been amazing to say the least, and I am loving this beautiful country and all it has to offer! Continue reading
I love smoothies! They’re so quick, easy and I love the fact that you can add whatever you want to create a delicious meal/snack! This tropical spirulina smoothie recipe is definitely a winner! I’ve experimented with quite a few flavor combinations over the years, from decadent chocolate smoothies to vibrant green smoothies to earthy beetroot concoctions. It’s amazing how many combinations you can create, with just a handful of ingredients.
