Smoothie bowls - what, why, how?

 photo de458cf9-803a-405e-8555-b67d77713a0c.jpg

A smoothie bowl is simply a smoothie that you eat from a bowl with a spoon instead of drinking it. Haha I know it is kinda obvious, but I get a lot of questions about smoothie bowls on instagram and tumblr, so I thought I might as well do a quick post on them.

Smoothies are so easy to make, jam-packed with nutrients and I absolutely love having my smoothies as smoothie bowls because that means I can add crazy amounts of toppings, which does not only make the smoothie that much tastier, but also add extra nutrients and helps me feel full longer. 

To make a smoothie bowl simply make a smoothie like you usually would, but add less liquid to make it thicker so it is easier to eat with a spoon. My personal favourite is blended frozen berries, banana, skyr/greek yoghurt and vanilla powder topped with chia seeds (see my post on chia seeds here), muesli, fruit and berries.

Healthy date snack bars

  photo foto2-28.jpg

I have gotten a lot of request for healthy snacks lately so I thought I would share this easy recipe with you. These little nutty date bars are perfect to bring as a healthy snack to school/uni/work or wherever really and a big plus is that they are not only healthy and nutritious, but also super tasty - almost brownie like! Another big plus is that you can easily substitute most of the ingredients (except the dates) with whatever you have available, I think these would also taste great with coconut filling or maybe dried berries? I will definitely have to experiment with different flavors next time, let me know if you have some good ideas for the filling :)

1 1/4 cup dates, packed
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 cup mixed almonds and hazelnuts
2 tablespoons chia seeds

  1. Place the dates in a food processor and pulse until you get a gooey paste. Empty the food processor into a mixing bowl.
  2. Place the nuts in the food processor and pulse until they’re chopped into little pieces, but be careful or it will turn into flour.
  3. Add the chopped nuts, the cacao powder and the chia seeds into the mixing bowl with the date paste. Knead the ingredients together until everything is well mixed and you have a cohesive dough.
  4. Line a pan, plastic container or whatever you have available with baking paper and add the dough - make sure you press it in real tight and leave it in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.
  5. Now, all there is left to do is to slice the dough into your desired size (I got 6 bars from this) and they’re ready to eat, enjoy!

Happy Easter!

Hi lovelies, just stopping by to wish you all happy easter! I hope you are having an amazing time with lots of good food and easter chocolate - haha I know I am! I will never get too old to make my parents buy me a giant easter egg ;)

During easter I always go to stay with my family and I don't worry too much about eating healthy, but I do like to make sure I get some proper nutrients in between all the chocolate eating ;) A great way to do so is by drinking smoothies, they're so easy to make and jam-packed with nutrients. This smoothie is actually secretly a green smoothie as I added spinach, but the color from the berries overpowers the green - if you're still not onboard with green smoothies this might be a great way to start, I promise you won't taste the spinach!

Simply blend 2 handfuls spinach, 1 large banana, 1.5 cup mixed frozen berries, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 2 tablespoons skyr/greek yoghurt, 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla powder, a little sweetener (I used honey) and about 1 cup water - enjoy!

Oatmeal chips

 photo DSC_5632.jpg

One thing you probably do not know about me is that I absolutely LOVE oatmeal and I usually eat it everyday. I prefer the completely plain kind with no toppings etc. so I never really share pictures of it here or on insta since plain oatmeal isn’t really the prettiest to look at ;) When I make my oatmeal I only rarely measure the ingredients and therefore often make too much – haha most of the time I’ll just eat it anyway and feel way too full, but I found a great idea on how to use the extra oatmeal on the Danish food blog ‘Det skal smage af noget’.  You can use the leftover oatmeal to make super healthy and super tasty oatmeal chips! I absolutely loved the idea so I had to give it a try and it turned out so great that I had to share it with you guys!
  1. All you have to do is to take your leftover oatmeal and spread it out on a sheet of baking paper, it has to be really thin or else it wont get all nice and crispy. You can use another baking sheet covered in a little oil to place on top of the other and then roll it with a baking roll to get it really thin.
  2. Then all you have to do is add you toppings of choice – I topped it with sunflower seeds, pumpkins seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds and sea salt – and bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes on 180c / 355f.
  3. After 10 minutes take them out of the oven and use a pizza slicer (or a knife) to carve lines to mark the size you want them to be.
  4. Put them back into the oven and let them bake for another 10 minutes. When they’re done take them out and let them cool on a wire rack. When they have cooled down you can use the lines you carved to break them into size. Enjoy!
I served them with guacamole and carrot sticks, it was the perfect little snack :)
