Nutri Advanced Superfood Plus‏..


This week Nutri Advanced have just launch their new Superfood Plus:

"The formulation that not only blends some of the most sought-after vegetables, fruits and supplements – including enzymes to support digestion, ginger, cinnamon, turmeric , green tea and reishi mushroom – but it also contains Chocamine®, a patented, standardised cocoa-based ingredient that has no fat, sugar or caffeine. The only sweetener is a touch of stevia." 

They kindly sent me some of the Chocolate SuperFood Plus and Vanilla UltraMeal powders’ to try out.

Vanilla and chocolate... These are coincidentally my favourite flavours!!, especially in smoothies and milkshakes. How yummy!


Drinking smoothies instead of my plain sandwiches for lunch, sounds like a fun plan to me!  Especially as the Sun was shining so beautifully, (for a change!). I was inspired to make a summer fruit smoothie with the UltraMeal Vanilla.

Banana, Kale, Strawberry, Peanut Butter Smoothie..


My husband brought a big bag of freshly chopped curly kale for us to try. I was a bit worries about trying it at first as we had never had it before. No worries though as we are all loving it. 

We have had it stir fired, boiled and raw in smoothies. Today I am sharing my favourite kale smoothie so far.

Chicken Pho With Sweet And Sour Berry Sambal...


This wonderfully fresh tasting chicken broth is nothing like Granny would make. Packed with oriental flavours, shreds of chicken and fresh crunchy vegetables then topped with a taste exploding spoonful of naturally sweet berry fruits mixed with chilli and rice wine vinegar.


This warming soup will soon leave you feeling restored.

Strawberry Chiffon Cake...


A real girly pink, this American style whisked sponge cake is made with pureed strawberries and vegetable oil rather than butter so is light but still moist and moreish.


You don’t need any fancy tins to make this, just 2, 20cm (8inch) springform tins that you can easily pick up from the supermarket.

Summer Berry Galette...


Who can resist a slice of warm fruit pie? Don’t stick to the old favourites of apple or apple and blackberry, try this tangy berry mix in a deliciously crumbly rich pastry.


A perfect dessert to follow a family Sunday roast. Any leftovers taste equally good cold too.

Banana, Strawberries And Peanut Butter Smoothie...


I love making smoothies. I also have 4 children who love drinking them too. Everyday here is a smoothie day since getting my new smoothie maker for Mother's day.


This smoothie is mine and my daughters favourite so far. My youngest son is not a fan of peanut butter so I make his minus this ingredient and sometime with a bit of Nutella in place of the butter, now he likes that!

As for us we love it, I would drink almost any smoothie with peanut butter in!?! I have read that runners should have a little peanut butter a day so a great addition to my after run smoothie.

Strawberries And Sandcastles...


It just would not be summer without a trip to the seaside.


Add just a hint of the beach by serving these bite sized British strawberries, dipped in dark glossy chocolate flavoured with just a hint of orange over a bed of crushed biscuit crumbs or press the mixture into mini buckets or dariole tins for a fun take on a sandcastle.

Strawberry And Chilli Nectar...


British strawberries just encapsulate summer.

Gently cooking fresh strawberries with dried hibiscus flowers, a little chilli and fructose sugar in a sealed bowl over hot water brings out and captures the very essence of summer.


Keep the nectar in the fridge or even the freezer and serve ice cold in shot glasses or topped up with prosecco or champagne for a kir style cocktail.

Strawberry And Summer Leaf Salad With Vanilla Salt...



This is a real taste sensation, fresh fruity and refreshing British strawberries, thirst quenching watermelon and cherry tomatoes, summery pea shoots and baby leaves tossed with crumbled feta shaved parmesan, toasted pine nuts then finished with sea salt flakes mixed with vanilla seeds and a white balsamic dressing for an incredible finale.
