I’ve been doing a bit of shopping at Sainsburys lately, I absolutely love the healthy dairy free products they are stocking at the moment! Especially the ones with all of the live cultures. 🙂
Check out my quick shopping haul below for a look at what I’ve been buying for my food shops! I do small food shops now and usually plan meals when I am organised, it doesn’t happen every week and in the school holidays my good meal planning often falls to pieces lol 🙂
Ok I know the colour is absolute yuk…but not all of my smoothies come out in beautiful pastel colours! lol! 😉
Super easy to make, simply blend all of the ingredients in the list and add in some of your own if you wish.
Handful of Blueberries
A few tbsp of live coconut yoghurt
A tbsp of Cacao Powder
A tsp of Super Mushroom powder (you could add in a Superfood Mushroom supplement of choice)
A splash of almond milk and Water
This is a super nutritious blend combined together. Check out some of the links below for further research and information on these superfoods.
Cacao powder is chocolate in its raw and natural state, its super nutritious. Click below for access to a really interesting article on the benefits of Cacao Powder. There is loads of information online regarding the health benefits of Cacao, I would recommend doing further research in this area. You can also make your own Raw healthy Chocolate with cacao powder…yes chocolate can be healthy. You can buy Cacao Powder in the supermarket but I find its better value to buy it in bulk. Check out the brand below for a high quality raw product.
I use a blend from Indigo Herbs, I absolutely love their products and find their powders deep in colour and very high quality. They are a Uk company. I’ve added a link to the super mushroom powder that I use below. There are instructions provided with how much to take, do your research and go easy, its very powerful!
I used some Lemon Coconut yoghurt to make this awesome and super quick fruit salad with chia seeds and walnuts. Me and the boys shared this after lunch and it was divine!
Chopped up fruit of choice
Coconut flavoured yoghurt or other dairy free yoghurt
Chopped nuts of choice
Maple Syrup (optional)
Basically all you need to do is chop up all of the fruit you wish to use and top with the yoghurt, sprinkle with some chia seeds and chopped nuts of choice and its ready to serve! You could also drizzle a little maple syrup over the top if you wish for that sweet tooth family member.
Chia Seeds are super awesome and have been used for thousands of years. Check out the link below for some further reading!
They are pretty easy to purchase in most supermarkets these days. I bought mine from Tesco but you can get them online also. Click below to buy them in bulk. I find this particular bulk option is cheaper and obviously lasts a lot longer. Suma Wholefoods Chia Seeds 1 Kg

I made a really simple organic beetroot juice this morning! It was divine! This was a great choice for me to drink before my Step Aerobics, I felt so strong and energetic after this powerful antioxidant packed juice!
(I did share this massive glass with the kids) 😉
1 whole pack of celery
2 large pieces of tumeric root
Chop all the pieces and put through the juicer, it sometimes helps to add the softer items with the hard. Drink immediately or store in a tightly sealed jar. Check out some of the awesome ingredients below.
Tumeric is a powerful ingredient and is thought to be a great anti inflammatory. You can purchase it in powder format but if your juicing it I would recommend getting the fresh root. I’ve included some links for the powder and the root format, you can use both in smoothies but I would personally recommend the fresh for juicing. You can also juice with a little pineapple to create an awesome tumeric shot! 😀
