RECIPE: healthy strawberry ice cream

This Summer, I made it my mission to make good use of my ice cream maker. After whipping up some coconut coffee ice cream for The Daily Dose, I wanted to create something more fruity for round two. So when I spotted a batch of organic strawberries at the grocery store over the weekend, I knew that strawberry ice cream it was. A healthy version of course, because those are the perks of homemade things – you get to decide what goes in it. Turns out that 4 ingredients is all takes for a scoop of pink heaven aka healthy strawberry ice cream!

iced coffee.

When the thermometer reads 37°C on a Friday afternoon, there’s not much more left to do other than to eat lots of froyo, turn up the air condition and sip on iced coffee. I’ve recently swapped my beloved latte for a healthy iced version (seen here) and already know I’ll be making this all Summer. It takes 2 minutes to throw together, and since some of you asked on Instagram how I make my iced coffee, I thought I’d share it just in time to kick-off the weekend!

RECIPE: homemade pizza pockets with asparagus

After the last, healthy breakfast smoothie recipe (check it out HERE), it is time for a little something savory today. After all, it is the weekend, which is when calories don’t count and pyjamas and sweats are considered real outfits (at least in my world). Ironically, I am still in my sweats while writing this, with a belly full of homemade pizza pockets with asparagus. Yumm! While I would love to pretend like it was my full intention to make these delicious pizza pockets when I was shopping for groceries yesterday, it would be a complete lie. I actually wanted to make a strudel with puff pastry, but apparently grabbed pizza dough instead of the pre-made puff pastry. The wrong dough called for some improv action in the kitchen, and luckily the result was pretty satisfying.

RECIPE: chocolate-banana breakfast smoothie

Dessert for breakfast? Sign me up! A while back, I was in a rush before leaving for the office in the morning and didn’t have time for any of my usual breakfast options like chia pudding, bircher müsli or oatmeal. Instead, I decided to make use of an overly ripe banana and tossed it into the blender with a whole bunch of other things, that I guessed would keep me full until lunch – or at least for a while. The outcome, a totally vegan chocolate-banana breakfast smoothie, is my new favorite go-to breakfast and I even make it on the weekends, where I have plenty of time. It tastes like liquid dessert and with a whole bunch of healthy ingredients it is the perfect fuel to start the day.
