Turmeric Surprise

Thursday 23 Mar, 2017, 6:52am by Mrs D 4 comments

Ok this is a bit random but I met a woman in the supermarket who was buying fresh turmeric and I asked her what she was doing with it. She told me how to make this paste and said you can mix it with still water, sparkling water, hot water, cranberry juice (or any juice […]

Coconut Lavender Lemonade

I was sent this recipe for fresh squeezed lemonade made with coconut water and lavender simple syrup by the good folks at Ranch Creek Recovery. They describe this drink as tropical, herbal, sweet and satisfying and recommend it for hot sun lounging days. Gorgeous and refreshing!

Virgin Blueberry Mojito

Friday 17 Feb, 2017, 4:18pm by Mrs D Share your ideas

This is actually super yummy. I muddled the mixture using a mortar and pestle but you could use a bowl with a spoon or some such. Limes are expensive but who cares we are worth it! Ingredients: Handful fresh blueberries plus more for garnish I tbsp sugar 10 fresh mint leaves 1 lime cut into […]

Zesty Water

Friday 10 Feb, 2017, 12:40pm by Mrs D 2 comments

This is kind of random but super yummy and I don’t see how it can be anything other than good for you! I found the recipe online and they called it a ‘nausea busting drink’. I’m using it as a basic refresher while I get some work done. I used our Nutra Ninja but you […]

Tropical Slushie Iced Tea

Thursday 26 Jan, 2017, 1:33pm by Mrs D 1 comment

I found this recipe on the Healtheries website and it is delish! Hope they don’t mind me pinching it to use here. It’s a really tasty and refreshing drink, also just guzzled by the 5 boys I have here today. You could probably use any sort of herbal tea but I did go and buy […]

Apple Virgin Mojito

Thursday 29 Dec, 2016, 9:43pm by Mrs D 1 comment

Proof that you can concoct a fancy drink of sorts wherever you are! There was no juicer or blender at the house we were at when I made this drink so I smooshed up the apple up with a stick blender inside a coffee plunger! It didn’t create much juice but gave a nice apple pulp […]

Summer Lemon Cordial

Thursday 15 Dec, 2016, 9:16pm by Mrs D Share your ideas

I was given a huge bottle of this by a friend who made it out of lemons and honey from her parents farm, it didn’t last long! It would be a great idea to make this in advance of Christmas Day and then have it on hand to mix with ice and fizzy water for […]

In a word – YUM!!!!!! I have just completely devoured this for lunch. It would also make a delicious breakfast or after school snack. If you don’t have a juicer buy some carrot juice. Ingredients: 1 banana 1 cup carrot juice 1 cup vanilla flavoured almond milk 1 tsp cinnamon 2 dates 1/4 cup raw […]
