New Winner, Pudding, and Jumping Around…

A bit of funny news, the chocolate giveaway winner didn't get back to me, so it's time to pick another one... Natalie, you're the new winner! Congrats! Hope you like the choccies and book! 

I've got a few blended goodies to share today...

I enjoyed this Mango Berry Pudding the other day. I used a bit of chia and psyllium to thicken it a bit - psyllium definitely needs to be used in moderation to prevent the mixture from getting overly sticky and gluten-like in texture. I garnished it with cacao nibs (love to have some crunch with my cream!), goji berries, and freeze dried strawberries.

Mango Berry Pudding

1 Tablespoon chia seed
1 cup almond milk
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 cup frozen mango
1 Tablespoon agave powder
3 Medjool dates
1 teaspoon psyllium hulls

In a glass jar, shake the chia and milk together. 
Set aside while you assemble the other ingredients, in order for the chia to start swelling. 
Now blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. 

Another blender recipe, I enjoyed this smoothie the other day... it's light in flavour, and pretty watery. You could add more banana if you want to thicken it up a bit.

Banana Choccie Smoothie

1 large frozen bananna
1 large handful spinach
1 cup almond milk
1 Tbs cacao powder
1 tsp agave powder
1 tsp lecithin
8 drops english toffee stevia 
3 large ice cubes
Blend all ingredients until frosty and smooth!

Now, for some of my latest travel shenanigans... I had some fun jumping around one night in front of the water in West Port with Philip. He got some really cool shots of me mid-air!

A yoga shot! 

That's all for now, hope you're having a grrreeat day!

    Wow - awesome photos - and I so relate to the bunny boots from up here in the blizzard. <br /><br />Hey, I've been thinking of you and your inspirational dessert presentation, and am definitely wanting to write more in my blog about my sugar-free dessert enterprises. Being in touch with you really motivates me to get writing on that: I'd love your feedback when I get some of it out.<br /><br />Thanks too for the 80% link: I'm in the middle of a big series of posts about a book explaining the role of cooked food in our evolution that might be of interest to them.<br />love<br />Ela
