Mama’s Guac

Guacamole is one of my favourite things to eat! It tastes like it should be bad for you, but every ingredient in it is amazing for your body. Some people might prefer their guac to be more simple with limited ingredients, but I like mine to be full of flavour!

“Mama’s guac” did not get it’s name by being one of my mom’s specialty dishes. It got it’s name by being so spicy and flavourful that it deserved it’s own theme song, which of course is “Mama said knock you out!”

Smoothie Recipe: Mango-Banana Medley

I picked up some frozen mango this week and have been making this smoothie in the mornings before I head to work. It’s very easy and quick. You could even prep most of it the night before and just add the almond milk and blend when you wake up. It has lots of protein, potassium, magnesium among other things to start your day off with thanks to the spirulina and hemp seed – we can talk more about why those are so great in another post!

This recipe is for one serving, but if you wanted you could double/triple/quadruple it up and have smoothies for two or more.
