Green super smoothies

Make your own! 

  • Choose a green leaf ... lettuce, spinach, kale, etc and take a handful and pour in mixing bowl
  • Pick 2 fruits (at least) ... bananas are the fruit which in my belief combine the best with any other fruits or even veg such as:
- banana, lime and cucumber
- goji, banana and pineapple
- banana, blueberries and blackberries
- banana and strawberries
- kiwi and banana
- nectarine and banana 
  • Liquid ... water, lemon/lime/orange/other fruits juice, coconut water, soy milk, yogurt 
  • Improve your smoothie by adding some Superfoods! e.g. chia, spirulina (all of these have both), maca, gojis, etc

    Vegan nuggets!

    I found this recipe on DimensiĆ³n vegana, a site which I've already mentioned before where you can find tons of vegan or raw recipes easy to make ... these guys even make videos and provide you with options to improve your recipes or to substitute some of the ingredients.

    Anyways ... I've just made them and thought I had to post this straight away ... because it's amazing how good this nuggets are.


    • 200g of dried Yuba (tofu skin) 
    • 1 Tsp of corn starch 
    • 1 tsp of onion powder
    • 1 tsp of garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp of salt
    • 1 bread slice previously dipped in soy or another non dairy milk ... or just water to soften
    • If you need add breadcrumbs... I didn't
    • Optional: vegan cheese (second one) or buy it hihi
    For the breading ... 

    ... First bowl:
    • 2 cups of flour 
    • 1 tsp of onion powder
    • 1 tsp of garlic powder
    • 1 tsp of chicken seasoning powder
    • 1 tsp of kala namak salt (black salt) 
    ... Second bowl:
    • 1 cup of soy milk 
    • 1 tsp of white wine
    ... Third bowl:
    • 1 cup of panko bread crumbs 

    How to make these awesome nuggets
    1. Soak over night yuba sheets or boil them for at least 2h (what I did) 
    2. Meanwhile prepare the mixtures
    3. Drain the yuba and wait until it cools down to press it to get rid of further water
    4. Chop yuba in tiny pieces and add the milky bread, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and corn starch
    5. Form nuggets by chopping sort of squares with the vegan cheese and covering them with the yuba mixture 
    6. Place the nugget into the flour mixture, then into the milky one and then into the panko
    7. Form nuggets and heat some sunflower oil for frying
    8. Place the nuggets and when the sides get brownie turn around
    9. When done place them in a plate with kitchen paper to get rid of some of the oil
    10. Enjoy by themselves or with some ketchup or other sauces you like :D 

    Vegan healthy mousse

    There's loads of different ways you can make chocolate vegan mousses or puddings. I make mines two ways ... either mixing: 
    • 1/2 avocado
    • 1 Tsp of agave syrup 
    • 1 Tsp of coconut milk 
    • 1 banana
    • 1 Tsp of cacao powder
    • 1 square of chocolate
    • Pinch of salt

    Or with tofu instead of avocado ... about 200g of drained tofu. 

    Add nuts, dry fruit or even soft cream on your mousse and enjoy anytime!!!!!!
