So you’ve adopted a healthy lifestyle and decided to keep it up? You don’t want to carry on nibbling just anything that comes along, but you’re even less keen to pay inflated prices for healthy snacks. Let me pass on some healthy recipes that are easy to make.
Half a cup of stoned dates
Half a cup of sliced almonds
A quarter cup (15g) of cocoa powder
1 tsp of matcha (green tea powder)
1 tablespoon (15ml) of almond milk
Mix all together in a food processor, roll into balls, and put in the fridge!
Maple and Banana Smoothie
You want to top up with energy, you absolutely don’t want any processed fruit juice, and you only have a few minutes. Mix some almond milk with a banana and some maple syrup. Or if you like, replace the banana with mango, and the syrup with honey. The ideal boost when you feel like a little something, or after doing sport.
Healthy Crêpes (thin pancakes)
1 cup (100-125ml) of almond milk
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 cup of spelt flour
3 tablespoons of unsweetened apple sauce or apple purée
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Mix the spelt flour and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Mix the eggs, the almond milk, the apple sauce and the coconut oil in a different bowl.
Mix all the ingredients together with a whisk. Add more almond milk if necessary to make a thin batter.
Heat a medium-size non-stick frying pan, brush lightly with melted butter, and pour in a little batter and tilt the pan from side to side until the batter just covers the bottom of the pan. When set, flip the pancake and cook the other side.
Serve with bananas and/or peanut butter.
