Been making different smoothies this week using kefir, today I made a banana and seed smoothie for lunch. So good for you.
1 cup kefir. (or you can substitute with another liquid base if you do not like or have kefir)
1 tbs chia seeds
1 tbs sunflower seeds
1 tbs pepita seeds
1 tsp honey
Mix till smooth and then enjoy!

Had a go at making coconut yoghurt from scratch. Investigated heaps of recipes on the net -there seemed to be 2 main types – ones that use thickening agents and ones that didn’t. I decided to try one without a thickener, the recipe reviews seemed mixed as half the readers said theirs did not set, but being an optimist I thought I would start off without the thickener. Really simple recipe and tasty but it did not set. So decided it would be perfect to use in a smoothie. Read so much lately about the health benefits of turmeric so thought I would give it ago.
1 cups coconut yoghurt ( can sub any milk or yoghurt option if preferred e.g almond milk)
1/2 cup frozen mango
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tbs maple syrup ( optional)
Blend till smooth.
This was so filling I had a glass for breakfast and I was not hungry till 2pm,
To make home made coconut yoghurt
1 can quality coconut cream (450g)
2 probiotic pills
2 tbs maple syrup
I added these to a yoghurt maker and let sit for 12 hours. Next time I will try adding a thickener either gelatine or arrowroot flour.
