IMG_0242

I am just on a roll with all these fun healthy recipes. Well, I wasn’t in the mood for a green smoothie really and I was thinking about a smoothie that would make me feel like it was Fall, even though we have only two seasons in Trinidad; rainy and dry season. Regardless, I had apples and I had cinnamon, so this is what went down:

  • 3 apples
  • 3 bananas (frozen and speckled is better)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg or mixed¬†spice
  • 1-2 c Almond Milk (milk of choice)

Add milk to blender, then toss in the remainder of ingredients. Serve cold and ENJOY!

I hope you enjoyed this Apple Pie Fall goodness in a cup!

Love,

Berry Melon smoothie

piclab

Its been a while since I’ve posted a smoothie recipe, which is weird because its summer and summer means smoothie season. ūüôā Moving on…I looked around my kitchen and saw what fruits I had on hand so this is what I came up with, its delicious and refreshing. You will need:

‚Ć™ 3 cups watermelon

‚Ć™ 2 cups spinach¬†(or kale)

‚Ć™ 1 cup berries (I used mixed berries)¬†

‚Ć™ 1 scoop Shredz Blueberry Muffin protein powder (optional)

Blend watermelon and spinach first, then add berries and protein powder. Blend until smooth.

TKP TIP:¬†There’s no need to add water as the watermelon blended will add liquid to the mixture. However, if you want to add some coconut water you can.

If you’ve tried out this recipe please let me know by using the hashtag #thatkhadineproject or comment below.

🍓‚ú®BERRY CHIA COCONUT DREAM‚ú®🍓

This has to be one of my greatest inventions yet! I was searching for a way to spice up my breakfast routine of eggs, green smoothies and oats but¬†something that wouldn’t leave me starving by 10am. It always¬†leads me to making¬†some poor eating choices like sada roti or a panini or something thats no good.¬†Here’s what you’ll need for this dream:
Chia pudding tier:2015-05-19 10.48.17

– 1/2 c Chia seeds

– 1 c Coconut Milk (or milk of choice)

– 1 tsp honey

Smoothie tier:

– 1/2 c strawberries (frozen)

Р1/2 banana  (frozen)

– 1 c mixed berries (frozen)

– 2 c Coconut Milk

1. Mix Chia seeds, honey and milk and leave in fridge overnight.

2. Next day, blend berries, banana and milk together and pour on top of chia pudding.

This is very easy to make and the best part is you can substitute these ingredients for whatever you got at home. If you happen to give this a try, please tweet or send me a picture on Instagram with the #thatkhadineproject

Beginner’s luck green smoothie

I began making these green smoothies within the last year or so and I love it. This is really one of my favorite ways to ensure that I am getting my full servings of fruits and vegetables everyday without chowing down 2-3 bowls of salad per day. Of course you can personalize your green smoothie, however this is my “beginners luck green smoothie” recipe. So hope you enjoy! You can use these measurements as a guide to making these smoothies your own.

Follow: 2 c liquid Р2 c greens Р3 c fruit

Here my beginners luck green smoothie recipe:‚Ä®-

2 c almond milk

– 2 c spinach

– 2 c strawberries

– 1 ripe banana (frozen)

– 1 tbsp. chia/flax seeds (optional)

Blend on the smoothie or liquefy function and Bon Appétit!

Tips for delicious smoothie making:

1. Use frozen fruits

2. Use the ripest fruits for a sweeter more nutritious smoothie

3. A great substitute for almond milk is water with non-fat plain or Greek yogurt

4. For added sweetness use honey or Stevia/Truvia.
