My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Breakfast – Day 50


If I want to have cake for breakfast, I prefer it to be healthy, just as my today’s protein bowl cake is. It is quick and easy to make as well, unlike your usual cake.

I simply take a small bowl, grease it with coconut oil (so that the cake easily comes out later) and mix in it 2 tablespoons coconut flour, 1 tablespoon vanilla-flavoured whey protein, 2 tablespoons plain yoghurt, 2 tablespoons almond milk, 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Then I microwave the bowl in one minute increments (3 minutes in total). In the meantime, I prepare the sauce, mixing 2 tablespoons plain yoghurt with 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder. By the way, all the amounts given are for 1 person, so just double them if you are serving 2.

The bowl cake makes a great breakfast together with some fresh berries and unsweetened cappuccino.

Smoothie – Day 22 – Creamy Berries and Cherries


It’s virtually impossible to find fresh sour cherries (which I love!) in London, but at least today I managed to get my hands on frozen ones. And what’s the best way to use frozen fruits and berries? Make a smoothie out of them, of course! So here’s what goes into this lovely smoothie:

  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons fromage frais
  • 100 g frozen strawberries
  • 100 g frozen sour cherries
  • 100 g fresh blackberries
  • 100 g fresh blueberries
  • A handful of spinach

And blend it all away!

Smoothies – Day 7 – Very Berry with Greens


This is basically a variation of the Very Berry smoothie that I made yesterday, the only difference being that this one also has a cup of baby spinach + kale added.

Breakfast – Day 14


Overnight oats again today! But the recipe is slightly different. Once again I mix up 1/2 cup of rolled oats with a tablespoon of flaxseed and chia seeds each, add 2/3 cup of coconut milk and a teaspoon of honey, but this time also in go some raspberries, a mashed banana and a tablespoon of unsweeted cocoa powder.

In the morning the oats are topped with fresh raspberries and blackberries and are ready to eat!

Breakfast – Day 13


Today I’m making healthy coconut banana waffles. First I beat one egg, then I add a tablespoon of melted butter, a teaspoon of honey, a little vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of coconut milk blended with a banana, 1/2 cup coconut flour. The ingredients are then mixed with a hand mixer and the batter is ready!

The waffles turn out a bit ugly, but never mind, they still taste great, especially with crème fraîche and fresh berries. I also have some milk & banana blend left, which I haven’t used for the batter, and that goes in my coffee!  IMG_20150308_094134
