Raw Cacao Smoothie!

Raw Cacao Smoothie

Smoothies don't have to be green to be healthy! If they did, I would never get one into my health resistant teenager.

Mothers have been hiding veggies in children's food for decades. Smoothies, I believe are a step up from that. Within seconds we can now have our kids drinking down a delicious 'milkshake' without them realising our deviousness.  So we are awesome mum and good mum at the same time - win win!!

My Raw Cacao Smoothie   isn’t going to send you or them into a blood sugar roller coaster or mess with your healthy flora.

If you’re seriously interested in getting healthy, restoring your digestion and boosting your energy then check out my new  program

LOVE YOUR GUT - 8 week gut healing program for busy people!

In the program you get lots of delicious satisfying recipes that you can enjoy without guilt, meal plans, shopping lists, tips and that will help rebuild your intestinal flora. Plus so much more! Grab your spot before 24th Dec for Early Bird Special. We start 8th January, 2018

When you’re gut health is off kilter it’s important not to overload your body with sugar. That’s where recipes like these come in. You can’t just flip a switch and never want a milkshake again, so it becomes about creating healthy substitutions to unhealthy foods.

Sugar feeds bad bacteria and candida in your gut and promotes digestive distress and hormonal issues. The more you can swap it out for healthy recipes like this the faster you’ll be on track to feeling amazingly energised and balanced.

This is a perfect treat on a hot day when you want a nourishing clean energy boost.

Raw cacao is beneficial in so many ways. Not only does it contain phenylethylamine which helps boost happy hormones, it’s also loaded with magnesium. A large percentage of the population is deficient in magnesium but it’s important for healthy digestion and a relaxed nervous system, so drink up!

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

500g Rump steak, sliced into thin strips

Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large pan. Cook beef slices in batches over medium/high heat until just cooked. (It usually takes 3 batches, depends on the size of your pan). Remove to a plate, cover with foil and set aside. Repeat until all meat cooked.

Reduce heat to medium, add the last 2 teaspoons of oil and cook onion and garlic, until onion is transparent. Add tomato paste and paprika. Cook for 2 minutes.

Stir in flour and cook for a further 2 minutes. Slowly pour in beef stock, stirring continually. Add mushrooms and stir in the coconut cream. Return beef strips to pan. Cover. Simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in parsley.
