Smoothie central.

I am often posting photos of my smoothie bowl breakfasts on Instagram, so I've decided to share on the blog so I can elaborate on ingredients! I started playing around with my blender about a year ago, making the occasional banana/berry smoothie with spinach! Then my friend Melissa made me breakfast one morning and it was a smoothie bowl with gluten free muesli on top and it's been a love affair ever since!

I have spent time researching superfoods and also foods that are good/bad for rosacea. I no longer have banana, blueberries and spinach in my morning smoothie as they are rosacea triggers. Or cows milk in my chocolate/peanut butter smoothie! I think once you have the foundation of the smoothie you can put in foods that benefit you! Acai is always included, I use freeze dried and I have noticed a real glow in my skin since I started. I'm starting to introduce a lot of organic food into my diet so a lot of the ingredients are organic, I love Loving Earth and I use their goji berries, buckinis, camu camu powder, desiccated coconut and coconut oil.

Acai breakfast smoothie:
1/2 cup soymilk or coconut water.
1tbs vital greens powder.
1tbs vegan vanilla protein powder.
1tsp camu camu powder.
1heaped tsp coconut oil.
Frozen rasperries and blackberries.
Frozen (or fresh) mango.
Chia seeds.


Topped with buckinis, coconut chips or desiccated coconut, goji berries, shaved almonds or walnuts and fresh fruit!

Peanut butter smoothie:
2 frozen bananas.
1cup milk.
1tbsp honey.
1tbsp peanut butter.
1tbsp raw cacao powder.


Topped with coconut chips, cacao nibs, goji berries and shaved almonds!
