Gluten Free Banana Peach Muffins

Ok, so banana muffins and banana bread could be one of my baking favorites! I went to buy a banana muffin at wholefoods the other day (and not to knock wholefoods cause I seriously love that store!) and I had a look at the ingredients in their freshly baked banana muffins. A whole lot of sugar added, and not the best quality oils used in the process.

So… that brings me to my seriously yummy homemade banana and peach muffins. Banana muffins with a twist! My boyfriend even liked them, so they must be a winner! These muffins are wheat and dairy free for all of you out there like me that have (or are trying) to eliminate these from their diet.

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!

Happy baking!

Perfectly Pear Smoothie

I’ll be the first to admit it….

When it’s this cold outside (-10!), it’s difficult for me to reach into the fridge and grab some greens!

I do it anyways…as eating my greens is super important for feeling incredibly vibrant, but I definitely need to talk myself into whipping up a large salad, or a cold smoothie.

Smoothies and salads are great during the summer months to keep us cool and fuelled!

During the winter, you just need to get a little creative with your greens.

As you know, I’m an avid smoothie drinker and like to think of myself as the Queen of smoothies.

So here’s a simple smoothie recipe that is perfect for the cold winter months.

It contains a mix of ‘warming’ spices that help to heat your internal body temperature while still offering you a whopping dose of minerals and antioxidants from ‘cold’ greens!

Ginger and cinnamon are amazing spices to add to your smoothies as they help to fire up your digestive juices, plus they offer a ton of antioxidants and help to support the health of your liver!

Here’s the recipe…

Ingredients:

2 cups spring water 
1 cup coconut water
half a pear
half a banana
half a kiwi
juice of half a lemon

large handful of spinach
2 tsp spirulina (Giddy Yoyo makes a great one!)
1 tsp ground or fresh ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp chia seeds
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional, but great to add if this is for breakfast to help keep you full)

Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender. 

Drink  & Enjoy!

To Your Health & Abundance,
Samantha 🙂
