Feedback from the husband is that the site is looking a bit full of ‘serious, self-help hippy shit’ at the moment.
"It IS January!" I say, "and so the perfect time to spout self-help hippy shit actually." But he may have a point.
So here’s a pretty and delicious smoothie bowl recipe from The Body Camp Ibiza to break things up a bit.
Still great for hippies and health nuts (vegan and full of goodness) but equally great for impressing on Instagram...
The Body Camp Smoothie Bowl
- Food Processor
- Measuring Cups
- 2 Cups of Buckwheat (buckwheat is ace because has a gum-like fibre which soothes the digestive tract. It also contains lots of non-digestible fibre which acts as a probiotic, feeding good bacteria in the gut)
- 1 Tbsp of Nut Butter
- 1 Banana
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
- 3 Cups of Almond Milk
- 1 Avocado
- granola (preferably DIY)
- goji berries
- toasted flaked almonds
- desiccated coconut
Soak the buckwheat overnight (you can get away with just an hour but it won’t be as smooth).
Give it a good rinse under cold running water until the water runs clear. Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend together until nice and smooth.
Then it's time to get artistic with your toppings (the dark green pattern here is made by mixing a small amount of the smoothie with chlorella) And that’s it! Simple. Delicious. Gorgeous.
