Back from the summer break - with new Superfood smoothie recipes and soon new cookbook :-)!
Hi girls and boys out there! I didn't post anything for quite a while. Well, I just needed a time out for reflection and regenerating myself... And I had I very good reason for this: Because the things around me have overturned downright recently.
First of all: I really work hard on my first cookbook, which will be released in September 2017 by the publisher Löwenzahn Verlag. With my own photos and recipes! Topic is of course raw food and Super Food - what else ?! You can imagine that I was pretty excited having found a publishing company as a partner for my first cookbook ...! I would also not miss to mention here my three very important cooperation partners for this project: Schubert Stone gave me beautiful stone slabs for my Food photos and Biohof Adamah provided me with organic fruits and organic vegetables and the natural food store Staudigl in downtown Vienna supplies me with high quality nuts, oils & other important raw food ingredients. With so much support I just have to create the very "best of RAW & SUPERFOOD" recipes .
In order to try a lot of raw food dishes by myself we have changed our nutrition: We eat fully raw on weekdays and on weekends just everything else we might want. At the moment everything is inspiring to me: What I eat in a restaurant or at friends, what I read in magazines and books, or discover on the Internet .... I often combine traditional dishes with modern raw food or make raw versions out of international recipes. Most of all these new recipes for the cookbook are of course top secret by now...
Therefore I have a small substitute for you - a Wild Berry Superfood Smoothie! I've just photographed and drunk immediately, because it's really delicious! Moreover, it is also very filling and quite a good breakfast replacement.
TIP: If you put the smoothie for about 3 hours in the refrigerator, it solidifies and can be eaten like a yogurt and tastes like a super fruity berriy yogurt! :-)
Wild Berry Superfood Smoothie
175 grams of mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries)
1 heaped tablespoon acai berry powder
1 ripe banana
1 tablespoon grated coconut
250ml coconut milk
1 teaspoon lime juice (or lemon)
5 ice cubes
Put all ingredients in the blender to make a creamy smoothie mix and enjoy!
