My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Smoothie – Day 25 – Carrot Cake


Usually I can’t be bothered to eat carrots. But since carrots are so good and healthy, I decided to incorporate them into my smoothie and make one that would taste like a carrot cake! Here is what I put in my blender:

  • Half cup almond milk
  • Half cup plain yoghurt
  • Two medium carrots, grated (I have to grate them as my blender is not strong enough to process chunks)
  • One frozen banana
  • One pitted Medjool date
  • One teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Half teaspoon cinnamon
  • Half teaspoon ground ginger
  • Half teaspoon ground nutmeg.

And it only remains to pour the smoothie into a tall glass, decorate it with grated carrot and desiccated coconut and enjoy the utter deliciousness!

Smoothie – Day 24 – Sunny Yellow


The weather in London has been pretty dull and gloomy the whole week and, longing for some sunshine, I decided to make a smoothie that would look all summery and sunny. Here’s what goes in my blender:

  • Half cup almond milk
  • One tablespoon plain yoghurt
  • Half cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • Half cup mango chunks
  • One small orange
  • A thumb of fresh peeled ginger
  • One teaspoon turmeric

Smoothies – Day 12 – Spicy Creamy Shake


I would call this one a shake rather than a smoothie, as it doesn’t really have any solid ingredients, only liquids and powders. I’ve had it after a workout and it feels great!

Here is what goes in the blender:

  • Half cup almond milk
  • Half cup black coffee (americano)
  • One scoop protein powder with chocolate flavour
  • Two teaspoons Bioglan Superfoods Supergreens Cacao Boost powder
  • One tablespoon flaxseed
  • Half teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon matcha powder
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • A pinch of clove
  • A pinch of ginger
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Half tablespoon clotted Cornish cream (the unhealthy bit 🙂 )
