Hello again! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Boxing Day. I enjoyed a few lovely days with my family; I was in charge of vegan food and my mother looked after the omnivores (so basically everyone but me). I’m currently making my way through the enormous pile of leftovers in my fridge – oh happy days!
I’ll keep it short and sweet today. I got some pumpkin seed butter last week while I was in Planet Organic – where I spent a disgusting amount of money I didn’t have on food I promptly gobbled up – and tried it in just about everything I could (including on a spoon, straight from the jar). It was lovely on plain old toast, but you know me, I like adding nut butters to smoothies – and now seed butters, too!
This one is creamy, luscious and just perfect for the post-Christmas calm after the storm. I’m looking forward to a few days of peace and quiet, having a clean kitchen again, reading Harry Potter while I’m sipping on this smoothie, and just relaxing.
a handful of frozen blueberries
1 banana, sliced
1/2 tbsp pumpkin seed butter
1/4 tsp spirulina
1/4 tsp powdered stevia (or a drizzle of maple syrup)
Place all ingredients in a blender and whizz till smooth and creamy. Top with some dried goji berries and toasted shaved almonds for extra pizzazz. Drink immediately.
How was your Christmas, busy or quiet? What are your post-holiday plans?
