Chocolate banana smoothie

1 banana

1 tablespoon of cacao powder

1 tablespoon of LSA (a mix of ground linseed, sunflower seeds, and almonds)

1 tablespoon of almond butter

1 cup of a milk of your choice or coconut water

Put it all in the blender and blend!

If you don’t like milk of any kind, you can add coconut water and a tablespoon of your favourite yoghurt (dairy or dairy-free it doesn’t matter).

Quinoa porridge with nuts, banana, and dates

¼ or ½ cup of Quinoa (depending on how hungry you are)

½- 1 cup of water (depending on how much Quinoa you use)

Pinch of salt

1/3 – 2/3 milk of your choice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1-2 tablespoons of your choice of nut

1 Medjool date finely chopped

1 banana

Soak Quinoa for 30 mins and then rinse under cold water.

Bring the water to the boil, add the salt and then add the quinoa, wait for the water to boil again, and place the lid on the saucepan. Reduce the heat and wait for the water to evaporate.

Take the lid off and add the milk, nuts, vanilla, cinnamon, date, and banana and stir well.

Cook for another 5-10 minutes or until thick and creamy and most of the liquid has absorbed. Keep an eye on it here and stir throughout.

Spoon into a serving bowl.
