Cleoptra Smoothie from Vegan Glow

vegan-glow

Egyptian Queen Cleopatra was absolutely obsessed with almonds and included them in both her diet and beauty routine so it only seems fitting that this smoothie be named after her. The base of this dreamy creamy drink is almond milk, which is high in Vitamin E and low in sugar. The oat bran provides fibre and the chia seeds contain omega fatty acids, essential for brain health. The recipe calls for a cup of mixed berries but feel free to play around with different combinations of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc until you get the flavour balance just how you like it.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup of unsweetened Almond Milk
1 OR 2 Tablespoons of Pea Protein Powder
2 Tablespoons of Oat Bran.
3/4 Cup of Mixed Berries
1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds (soaked the night before)

METHOD:

Blend ingredients in a juicer OR a high watt blender to retain all the fibre for a slower release of nutrients

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

One of my famous most loved nutritious soups in my Winter Cleanse is the Spicy Sweet Potato Soup. The meals in my eating plans are not only about weightloss. The menu focus will always be about the medical and health benefits. Sweet potatoes offer the best sources of vitamin A, vitamin B, riboflavin, niacin, thiamin and caratenoids. Scientists had determined that sweet potato contains anti inflammatory, anti diabetic and anti cancerous properties. With added cumin, this winning soup is sure to improve your digestive health and assist with bloating.

INGREDIENTS:
2 tsp of olive oil
1 large red onion, finely diced (about 1 and 1/2 cups)
2 garlic cloves, minced
5 sprigs of coriander, leaves reserved for garnish & stems tied together
3/4 tsp cumin
Sea salt
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (about 6 cups)
6 cups vegetable stock

METHOD:
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, coriander sprigs, cumin and a heavy pinch of salt and cook, stirring now and then, until softened but not browned (about 10 mins). Add the sweet potatoes and stir. Then add the vegetable stock and bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until the sweet potatoes are very soft (about 30 mins). Remove the coriander sprigs. Carefully puree the soup in a blender until you’ve reached your desired texture. Garnish with a few coriander leaves and enjoy.
