Chocolate Milkshake

Vegan Chocolate Milkshake

When I get the frozen bananas out of my freezer, it’s usually to make Nicecream. But this particular summer day, I just wanted a chocolate milkshake. Sometimes I miss having milkshakes. I used to love getting chocolate or vanilla milkshakes at fastfood restaurants when I was younger! But thinking about all the unhealthy & nasty stuff they put in there, I don’t feel the need to go there anymore. Much to my surprise, I created this absolutely delicious, thick and HEALTHY vegan chocolate milkshake!

Green Smoothie

Green Post-Run Smoothie Bowl

I usually drink my smoothies out of a glass. But after seeing smoothie bowls everywhere on Instagram, I had to give this a try!

Ingredients: 1/2 frozen banana 1 apple 2 big leaves of swiss chard 1/2 lemon handful of oats* 1/2 tsp spirulina a dash of plant milk (depending on preferred thickness) toppings of your liking (in the photos I used hemp hearts, chia seeds, goji berries, raspberries and pomegranate) *use gluten-free oats & milk to make gluten-free Instructions: Wash and cut fruit/veggies, squeeze lemon and combine all ingredients in a blender.

Detoxing is supposed to give your liver and kidneys a break and wash out toxins that have built up in the body. There are a lot of different ways to detox, but since I am not a fan of depriving myself of solid food for days, I chose this gentle program. The main idea of the Our Clean Journey detox is to cut out things like flour, animal products, alcohol, coffee, salt, sugar, preservatives and basically all processed food. In those 5 days, you make all your meals from fresh, unprocessed food, so it does take a little bit of time to prepare. To do the detox, I chose a few days when I was at home anyways, so I would be flexible enough to make food whenever I wanted. The plan provides you with 36 recipes for breakfast, lunch/dinner and snacks as well as a little 5 day planner, where you can plan out …
