By popular demand, I will use this page for recipes to help you on your healthy journey. For those of you who have met me, you will know that healthy, delicious food is a passion of mine, and I can provide recipes for you to make fast, healthy, delicious meals and treats. I highly recommend the Vitamix Prep or the K-Tek Blendtec for the best blending experience. You can find these through the resource section of my site, or other fine dealers. Enjoy!
Xell’s Chocolate Bliss and Amazing Meal Replacement
(This recipe makes approximately 2 litres)
1/2 cup Chocolate Bliss Mix (or more as desired)
1/4 cup *Vanilla Agave Nectar (or as desired)
2-4 T hemp seeds
1 T Ultra Tocos (adds a delicious malty flavour plus antioxidant benefits)
1 small chunk (thumbnail
size) Pristine Cacao Butter (optional)
1 to 4 T *Jarrah Bee Pollen (optional)
5 to 6 cups filtered water (or more or less as desired)
ice cubes if you like the drink cold
Blend until smooth. This drink is pure ecstasy!
*Can also use Yacon Syrup, or dark stevia instead of agave, if desired.
*This is how I love to use the Bee Pollen: After making the Bliss, I pour most of it into a container and place in fridge. I keep the amount I am going to drink right away in the blender (typically 2 or 3 cups), and then I add 2 or more Tablespoons of the pollen and blend again. DELICIOUS and keeps me going for hours.
Green Smoothie #1
2 -3 cups filtered water or coconut water
1/2 to 1 cup fresh or frozen mango
large handful of parsley
Blend until smooth.
You won’t believe how delicious this is!
*optional ingredients: dates, Brazil Nut Protein Powder
Green Smoothie #2
2-4 cups filtered water or coconut water
1 banana (fresh or frozen)
1 or 2 soaked figs1/2 cup frozen cherries
1 or 2 sticks of celery
*2 T hemp seeds (optional – adds protein, EFA’s and creaminess)
*1 T ground golden flax seeds (optional – adds protein, fiber, and EFA’s)
Blend until smooth and enjoy!
Technically protein and fruit do not food combine well, but somehow the blending process, which initiates digestion, sits well in my tummy. I hope it does in yours!
My Favourite Chia Seed Pudding
1 cup lukewarm/cooled vanilla rooibos tea* (I like to use strawberry kiwi rooibos but get mine from Canada. A berry type of tea will work, too)
2 cups nut milk, rice, milk, seed milk, or water
1/4 to 1/2 cup chia seeds (more will make it thicker)
1 – 2 T dried mulberries (optional and yummy)
Whisk ingredients with fork until well mixed. Let stand at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes or longer (or overnight, in fridge). I also like to stir it a few more times within the soaking time to avoid clumping.
Enjoy with chopped fruit (I love grated apple or banana), added nut milk, lucuma (a wonderful, low glycemic sweetener I carry that is reminiscent of butterscotch/caramel) or vanilla agave. I like to add a T or more of bee pollen just as I am about to eat it, for a wonderful, delicious flavour and crunch!
I have many more recipes on the way. I invite your feedback and requests.
Light and blessings,
