The morning kick coffee smoothie

I can’t really imagine starting the day without a cup of coffee. Well I cán but I don’t necessarily want to… Too good. It’s also a little bit our quiet moment before the madness of the day starts. Waking up with a cup of coffee in bed, ipad on my lap for the latest news and social media stuff before…

Kale smoothie with maca

I have to confess that – despite the fact I put it all together myself in the blender – I had my doubts about this kale smoothie. I mean… sure I like kale but mostly in a mix with mashed potatoes, bacon and a smoked sausage. Not necessarily in a drinkable variation. But sometimes you have to think outside the…

Smoothie with a little bit of spring

It happened all of a sudden this week; I walked outside , the sun was shining and it just happened – for a very brief moment – I had that spring feeling. It’s comparable to the beginning of autumn; you know it is coming but it is always suddenly there. That very special something in the air that signals that…

White chocolate milk with spices

Let me start by explaining that over here in the Netherlands tonight is the night we are celebrating ‘Sinterklaas’. Which is not the same as Santa Claus (even though it sounds vaguely familair) but has a lot to do with presents, poems and fun for kids. We haven’t celebrated Sinterklaas in ages because it really is a kids thing, but…

Caipirinha _ Brazilian cocktail

I had my very first caipirinha somewhere in a small Brazilian bar in Amsterdam. I came there with a colleague of Nike where I worked at the time and we were gonna meet someone else in town too. I had heard of caipirinha before but had never drank ik. I was – and I am still – not a big…

Green smoothie with mango, coconut and pineapple

Green smoothies.. I’ve seen endless varieties pass by, but never really made one myself.. Maybe weird but I kind of had the feeling that putting veggies inside a smoothie was somehow unnatural. You eat vegetables, but it is ok to drink your fruit… But to be honest – no matter how much I love salads, in all shapes, sizes and…

Smoothie with yoghurt, raspberries and chia seeds

Are you already in spring mood? While I am writing this I can hear the birds chirping outside and slowly but surely our garden is transformed from grey and unappealing to green and fabulous.. 😉 On top of that our garden is being redesigned next month as well (well new plants only) and I cannot wait for that to be…

Tequila granita with mint

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas. Only two more days to go and it’s here…! The season to be jolly… We’ve done most of our grocery shopping, all the presents are in the house although not all are wrapped yet and I still need to write a rhyme for just about all of them. It’s a tradition for us to…

Chia Smoothies

Sometimes it just happens. Not often, but still every once in a while it hits me… I don’t feel like cooking… Yes really! And yes ofcourse a salad is made in just a few minutes, a sandwich is done is even less, but what if you’re just not in the mood for those quick fixes? So for lunch a smoothie…

Think pink – It’s smoothie time!

Are you as much in need of spring and summer to arrive as I am? Winter just seems to drag on and I know it’s only March but still…. My day first started with a shock at hearing about the earthquake for the coast of Japan. A friend of mine has recently moved with her husband and little child to…
