CHOCOHOLIC SMOOTHIE

Hey beauties,

If you've been following me for a while then you would know that I am an absolute CHOCOHOLIC (also a peanut-o-holic; is that a thing??)! So, I created a smoothie to suit my obsession. I love this smoothie just after a sweaty yoga or pilates sesh as it is packed with protein and all the goodies from cacao - including magnesium to help with those sore muscles!

Ingredients

  • 2x Frozen Bananas (or 3 if you're feeling hungry)

  • 1/4 cup of raw cacao (I like mine chocolatey - otherwise just use 1 tbsp.)

  • 1 tbsp. of Peanut butter (I use Mayver's Smooth)

  • 1 scoop of chocolate vegan protein of choice (can omit)

  • 1 1/2 cups of Plant milk of choice (I use Bonsoy)

  • some ice

Method

  • Place all ingredients into a blender and mix

  • Add more water or soy milk to get your desired consistency

Vegan Sweet Chilli Soba Noodles

Hey beauties!

Today has been so incredible - the sun has been shining and it's starting to feel like summer! This got me all excited that I decided to cook one of my fave, simple and fresh recipes - Sweet Chilli Soba Noodles! It takes 20 minutes to make and it's light yet filling, which makes it perfect for those warm summery nights!

Ingredients for the Soba Noodles:

  • 90gm of Soba Noodles (Dry)

  • 1 Cup of Broccoli

  • 1 Large Carrot

  • 1 Cup of Shelled Edamame Beans (you can substitute this with bean of choice if you cannot access edamame eg. Kidney Beans or Chickpeas)

Ingredients for Sweet Chilli Sauce:

  • 1 Garlic Clove - minced/finely sliced

  • 1/3 Cup of Sweet Chilli Sauce

  • 1 TBSP of Rice Vinegar

  • 1/2 TSP of Sriracha

  • 1 TBSP of Low Sodium Soy Sauce

  • Juice of 1/2 a Lime 1 TBSP of Coconut Sugar (can omit)

Method:

  • Mix together all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl

  • Cook the soba noodles according to packet instructions. It’s typically the same as cooking pasta

  • Whilst the noodles are cooking, steam or boil the broccoli and carrots. If you have frozen edamame beans, you may need to heat them up or let them defrost before hand

  • Once the noodles are cooked, toss the noodles with the sauce and vegetables and serve
