This morning I had another throw together combination made up of leftovers that needed to be used! Pineapple, grapes, baby spinach and a handful of fresh mint with ice. This made a really juicy style smoothie and man that mint just really wakes me up! :D
For morning tea I had a really purple one as I used raspberries, blackberries (a nice big handful), two bananas, baby spinach, ice and about 50ml water. It was sweet AND slightly tart and completely delicious!!
Now we're a week in I'd really love to hear how all of you are finding it? How is your energy level? What combinations are you enjoying? Are you noticing any difference in how you feel each day? Please let me know as I'm so curious to see if everyone feels the same sort of instant results I've felt since starting this!
Today I thought I'd try to do a little creative baking, so I grabbed out my Mother-In-Laws recipe for Anzac Biscuits and tweaked it to make it Choc-Chip, Wheat Free and Dairy Free, using spelt grain and almonds. But after making it I've decided to do it again slightly differently, as this first batch came out a little drier than I'd like, and I'd like to make it completely Gluten Free. So here's the recipe for the (hopefully) more moist Gluten Free, Dairy Free Anzac Biscuits:
160g Soaked almonds (soak overnight, then rinse)
100 Oats (you could also soak these to make it even more moist)
120g Coconut Oil
20g Maple Syrup (or Golden Syrup or Honey)
1/2 tsp bicarb soda dissolved in 1 TBSP of boiling water
*Optional - choc chips or dairy free choc chips to sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 180C and grease a baking tray or slice tray.
Mill almonds in TMX on speed 10 for 1 minute.
Add remaining ingredients and combine in TMX on speed 6 for 6 seconds to incorporate.
Mix on speed 7-8 for 1-2 minutes or until ingredients start to stick together nicely.
Press mixture into slice tray - making sure to pack it down nice and firmly.
If adding choc chips, sprinkle over the top and press them in slightly.
Bake approximately 10-15 minutes or until slightly browned on top.
Allow to cool slightly, then cut into squares and enjoy!
Hope everyone is doing well on the Green Smoothie Challenge, please do touch base with me either here or via Facebook and let me know how its going!
