Sweet and creamy protein rich green smoothie with white beans

Spring is finally here! And I mean really here!

And with spring comes sunshine and warmer weather, which means that my love for smoothies is coming back as well. I must admit that I haven’t had my daily smoothie in a while. A big bowl of warming oatmeal have been a lot more tempting in the morning, but today it felt almost like summer and my smoothie cravings are officially back on!

I enjoyed this protein rich green smoothie outside in the lovely spring weather and it just felt SO good to feel the warmth of the sun on my pale skin – a little bit of sun really does work wonders ♥

But enough about the weather, I am sure that some of you are getting tired of my constant weather ramblings, so lets get to the good stuff aka. the recipe for this sweet and creamy green smoothie. It is one of my absolute favorites when I want to pack in some greens without the smoothie tasting like blended lawn ;)

I have shared a couple of similar recipes before, but this one has beans in it as well, which is one of my favorite things to add to smoothies. I actually just realized this morning that I have never shared a smoothie recipe containing beans with you guys before (only in my cookbook), so it is certainly about time! It might sound a bit weird, maybe even off-putting, to some, but when you use white beans, then you really can’t taste that they are in there at all – they are just a great way to add extra nutrients, fibre and protein + to use up leftovers beans from lunch or dinner.

Tropical smoothie bowl with all of the toppings

After taking a break from smoothie bowls all winter, then I am finally bringing them back and oh how I have missed them! A big warming bowl of oatmeal might be more appropriate in this weather, but when eating this colorful smoothie bowl I am feeling some serious spring/summer vibes and it is just what I need ♥

I try not to buy out of season fruit, but once in a while you just need to treat yourself a little and I can’t even begin to describe how good this was! I cannot wait for berries to finally be back in season – come ooon summer!

Winter boost green smoothie with pear, ginger and chlorophyll (banana-free)

fil-02-02-2018-15-13-32

Evening babes, are you ready for the weekend? ♥ I am excited to go out with a friend for dinner and drinks tomorrow, but also to have some downtime and catch up on my favorite tv-shows, clean the house, do laundry and read a good book (have to keep up with my bucket list).

Today I want to share one of my favorite smoothie recipes, I usually add banana to everything, but some of you have been requesting banana-free smoothies, so here we go! This green smoothie with pear and ginger is so fresh, full of flavor and bursting with goodness – a must try! ♥

I am a bit obsessed with chlorophyll at the moment and I love to add it to my smoothies, but you can easily leave it out if you’d like – it adds a delicious mint flavor though and is so good for you! The smoothie pictured above is made without the chlorophyll and the one below is with the chlorophyll – both delicious!

Ingredients:
– Yields 2 small servings/1 large
2 pears, cored
1 large handful frozen spinach
1/2 – 1 thumb of ginger
The juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
1-2 droppers of liquid chlorophyll – optional
Plant milk to blend

Simply add everything to a blender and pulse until smooth, serve right away, add ice if needed. Enjoy ♥

dsc_3002-2

Good afternoon babes! I am still going through my archives for old recipes that are yet to be translated into English and every time I think I am done, then I seem to find another one – so here we go again ;)

This time it is definitely one of the healthier ones, but after the cake I posted the other day, then it is probably a good idea with some greens right? This green power juice with wheat grass is perfect if you are looking for a super easy way to add more greens and veggies to your diet. It is absolutely bursting with nutrients, is super easy to make and it actually tastes great – you know, for a green juice that is ;)

You can find the recipe in Danish right here!

Raspberry smoothie bowls with ginger and zucchini

Raspberry smoothie bowls with ginger and zucchini

Evening lovelies! I hope you are all having an amazing weekend? ♥

Mine has actually been pretty decent so far. I mean being sick absolutely sucks, but I am such a couch potato that being able to just crash on the couch with lots of blankets, snacks and hours of Netflix is pretty much my ideal weekend ;)

I really want to get better soon though, so I have been adding lots of ginger and superfoods to all my meals and drinks in the hopes that it will help speed things up. One of the things I have been making is this  beyond delicious raspberry smoothie with a hint of ginger, lots of superfoods and even zucchini, which you cannot taste, but it is such a great way to help keep the sugar content down while adding lots of goodness.
