Green Super Smoothie

‘Happiness is sipping a green smoothie.’   This green goddess smoothie will provide you with pure healthy energy, and make you glow from the inside out. It’s filled with all the good stuff; spinach, kale, broccoli, mango, banana and almond butter. A bunch of greens, because the body likes that. Every cell of the body likes those nutrients.  Nowadays when I have a smoothie they are usually green and filled with veggies & banana or mango. They keep me fuller for longer, and are perfect for both breakfast or as a post-workout snack or as a lighter lunch. It’s easy to ”hide” the veggies in a smoothie. If your kids or you have difficulties getting those daily portions of veggies blend them into the smoothie. And all kiddies and youngsters should know that when drinking a green smoothie they will become Superman/Superwoman.   Green Goddess Smoothie Ingredients: A handful of frozen broccoli A handful of spinach & kale 1 frozen banana A handful of frozen mango 1 tbsp almond butter Lemon juice from one lemon …

Thursday brunch

‘Stop dancing in a daydream while the sky is full of stars.’   – Linda   Quiet mornings. Calm sea and freshly brewed coffee. Enjoying the late summer heat while preparing brunch. The beauty of holidays; one have time to enjoy a long brunch on a Thursday. All about simplicity though, fresh food that is easy to prepare. Easy to love. I have a weakness for food with a taste of crispiness, creaminess and comfortness. Quiet mornings turning into productive afternoons.  Thursday brunch Avocado toast with fresh coriander, sesame seeds & baby tomatoes Simple to make and so very delicious. Crispy bread, creamy avocado and fresh coriander = best combo ❤ I can’t have enough.

5 benefits from drinking green smoothies

‘Let’s wake up with a smile, make green smoothies and conquer the day.’   Whenever I’m at home I try to have a green smoothie as the first meal of the day. I’ve become slightly addicted to them as they provide me with so much energy. And of course they taste delicious. However, I like my green smoothies to be more on the sweet side, hence I always mix frozen banana or frozen mango into the blender. Not to forget the almond butter or peanut butter. The best thing is – you can be creative and improvise. Combine your favourite veggies and/or fruits, some kind of superfood and spices, nuts & seeds, dairy free milk of your own choice and you have yourself a delicious meal. I also prefer cold smoothies so I usually add frozen banana. Amazingly yummy. More energy – Smoothies can be very energy dense, providing your body with loads of healthy stuff. Perfect if you’re searching for a calorie dense meal – add some kind of nut butter (almond butter is …

Green smoothies

”Be calm and have a green smoothie.” Green is my favourite colour when it comes to food, as well as smoothies. Greens + Smoothie = Perfect match. I love the mix of kale and almond butter. The best. Since I prefer a sweet taste I always blend together fruits and veggies. I’m not a hard core vegetable juice drinker. At least not when I’m the chef. You might find me buying a green vegetable juice once or twice a year 😉 With that being said, below you’ll find three of my favourite green smoothies. Oh I almost forgot – I like adding some kind of vegan protein into my smoothies. Just to keep me satisfied and fuller for longer. Not to mention the almond butter. Oh well, the struggles of having a big appetite. MANGO & KALE SMOOTHIE WITH ALMOND BUTTER SPIRULINA DREAM   GREENLICIOUS SMOOTHIE

Pecan & Coconut Granola with creamy blueberry smoothie

Home made granola ❤ My fav! I love the smell of cinnamon and cardamom, almost like I would be baking cinnamon buns (fooling the brain 😉 ) Just mix all of your favourites together, bake in the oven and voilá you have yourself a delicious weekend breakfast. I was actually searching for a granola in the food store earlier today but didn’t find any that attracted my attention. Anyhow, I don’t mind since I know how easy it is to make my own.

Pancake brunch

I had myself a delicious pancake brunch this beautiful Saturday morning. Very convenient after a tough leg session at the gym. These pancakes are so yummy and very easy to make. Served with fresh blueberries & raspberries, coconut sugar and squeezed lime juice. I also sneaked in a couple spoons of greek yoghurt. Haven’t been eaten that for many many months but somehow I thought the creamy yoghurt would be suitable together with these darlings. I usually prefer a dairy free option to yoghurt such as coconut yoghurt or soy yoghurt – or more correct -my stomach prefer a dairy free option, so that’s what I’ll have most of the time. Anyhow, they are exquisite – perfectly moist but also a bit crunchy on top. Yum! The combination coconut sugar and squeezed lime was a huge hit, definitely a new favourite. Banana & Oat Pancakes Ingredients: (approx. three pancakes) 1 mashed banana 1 dl oat flour (you can mix oat flakes into a flour in your blender) 1 dl unsweetened almond milk 1 tsp baking powder …

Green Smoothie Morning

I started this rainy, but cosy Saturday morning with an obligatory green smoothie. While I was in Helsinki I bought a new green powder from Puhdistamo – the perfect ingredient for a smoothie. The powder contains MCT-powder, chlorella, spirulina, wheat grass, barley grass, hemp powder among other things. Such a convenient cocktail! I got over excited and mixed the green powder with a little bit of everything such as frozen banana, frozen mango, baby spinach, peanut butter, raw cacao nibs, coconut/rice milk, unsweetened soy yoghurt, vanilla powder and a couple of ice cubes. And what a refreshing and delicious morning! (Summer rain is always refreshing). It’s been raining the entire day and I’ve been so, so tired since I came home on Thursday. At least I dragged myself to the gym for a shoulder & abs session (after way too many cups of coffee). I’m completely exhausted after two weeks of work, 10,5 hour a day. I could for sure sleep the whole day, as a matter of fact that’s exactly what I’m going to …


Sunday morning in bed. I woke up way too early. But why sleep when you can have breakfast and enjoy the early hours. Black coffee and banana porridge. I’m deeply in love with Sundays. This banana porridge is super easy to make. You just cook gluten free oats with unsweetened almond milk, a mashed banana and cinnamon. Serve with berries, nuts and seeds. Voilá! Breakfast is served.  

Smoothie 24/7

Here’s a list with a few of my favourite smoothies. There’s no surprise that I love my smoothies. I usually have one as a snack before my workout in the afternoon/evening. Perfect pre-workout. At the moment I mostly end up mixing acai berry powder with frozen banana and blueberries or frozen mango, banana and pea protein powder. From time to time I attempt to create something extra fancy and nourishing, like the ones below.
