New health for a new year

It's officially been a year since I turned vegan and I haven't looked back! I also don't want to "jinx" it but I haven't become unwell since! I binge out on all the same stuff like pizzas, chocolate and of course lots of cake... but I also try to eat raw at least twice a week, drink lots of water and have smoothies everyday! For those of you who had a bit of an over-indulgent xmas and new years this smoothie is sure to get you back on track with a massive boost of energy! Hurrrahhh bring on the greens!

Makes 2-3 servings

For this jug of awesomeness you will need:

1/3 cup of cashew nuts
2 handfuls of chopped kale
1/4 cup of pitted dates
1 apple peeled and cored
1 banana
the juice of half a lime
1 1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon of creamed coconut/ 1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 scoop of hemp powder

Start by blender the cashews into a powder, add the kale and pulse then add all the other ingredients and blend until smooth. This is seriously yummy and will make you want to finish the whole batch!!


  1. Congratulations on your first year of being vegan!! 2014 means it's 19 of vegan and 21 of veggie for me...within a couple of months of trying a dairy-free diet there was no going back as I felt fresher and more alive and obviously a lot healthier than I'd ever been in my life, and in total control of my weight. There is so much delicious, nutritious food to eat, and knowing that you are doing your bit against needless animal suffering is very good for my soul. So it's a win, win, win situation. I LOVE YOU VEGAN!!!

    1. Thanks Shak!! Congrats to you for 19 years!! I was veggie since the age of 10 and as soon as I found out about the horrors of the dairy industry and the health benefits there was no going back :) here's to a happy healthy cruelty-free 2014!!!
