Ombre Smoothies So Pretty

 
Healthy-Living_Smoothie_Layered-Yoghurt-Green-Spinach-Mango-Coconut-Water

This is my go-to smoothies every other week. It's really easy to make. It's green and refreshing. Whenever I get bored silly with plain greek yoghurts, I quickly raided my fridge for fruits and vegetables to make a yummy smoothie.

It's handy to have a blender to make this magical green smoothie. And a mix of fresh and frozen ingredients. Takes minutes to blend them up. Truly!

INGREDIENTS (Recipe serves 2-4, depending on the size of bottle or glass)

2 tablespoons full of greek yoghurt (or any yoghurt you fancy). When I meant full, like a ginormous mountain made of yoghurt.

1 cup of sliced or diced frozen mango*

3/4 cup almond milk**

a dash of coconut water to taste

1 - 1 1/2 cup of loose spinach leaves (do not compress them)

*If you have fresh ones, by all means, use them! I would use 2 fresh mangoes and remove the pip.

**any milk of your choice

OPTIONAL : add  1/4 cup of vanilla custard if you feel like a milkshake kind of smoothie.

And if you're up for a smoothie challenge, you can create this ombre drink in glass bottles.

HOW TO MAKE AN OMBRE SMOOTHIE DRINK :

  1. You need a lot of patience. Like 2-3 hours worth of waiting around for each layer of smoothie to freeze up.
  2. My tip is to create a jug of dark shade of green smoothie to start with. Fill up 4-5 different shades of green in separate glasses (or go crazy with as many shades), add 1-2 spoonful of plain yoghurt each time to the green smoothie. 
  3. Stir well before pouring them into the bottle or glassware. 
  4. Allow each layer to semi-freeze before adding another layer. 

Have fun + stay healthy! Keep being awesome folks!

TOP 5 FAVES : WHEN IN LONDON

 
 

I adore London. To bits (and pieces). I personally find that the buildings are quaint and cute, even the people are jolly and cute. Looking forward to being back again next year!

Here, in this post, I'm sharing my top 5 snacks. It's cheap eats at its very best, teehee. I love snacking and I just want to share the joy. 4 out of 5 of them are totally Instagrammable!

Here's my Top 5 Best Snacks Under £10

1. Maitre Choux, South Kensington 

My number one reason visit to London, truly, is to see this place with my very own eyes (and my pair of glasses). Maitre Choux, thank you for making my dessert dream come true. If you're on a diet, please look away. The eclairs, choux and chouquettes pastries are crafted by Michelin Star chef, Joakim Prat and his team. It's way too beautiful to eat. My favourite flavours is Spanish Raspberry Pink eclair, filled with a soft mousse with a tinge of rose water. I'm in heaven.

2. Cereal Killer Cafe, Shoreditch 

So, if you're a cereal fan (even though I'm a 30 something), this is the place to wander into. Cereal Killer Cafe brings me so much joy. Transported me back into my Kellogs Frosties and Coco Pop childhood days.

They have a wide array of choices, cereals from all around the world, from Frankenberry (USA) to Kariot (Israel) right up to home, Nutrigrain (AUS). And Cereal Killer Cafe just don't stop there. More than a dozen choices when it comes to the type of milk and toppings. Cinnamon or bubble gum milk? Wait a minute, I can have crispy M&M's and strawberry for toppings? It's already giving me a mini headache, as I'm the worst person, when it comes to making a decision.

I just went with the craziest looking milkshake, typical Miss May, haha!

3. Fish! Kitchen, Burrough's Market 

I was here 5 years ago and I came back for, literally, the best fish & chips that I ever had in my young life.

Look no further for the best Fish & Chips in town. Fish! Kitchen is a takeaway tucked around the corner in Burrough's Market. It's madness trying to get a sitting spot, but no worries, the fish of the day can still be enjoyed, standing around or sitting on the side lanes. I had haddock, and blimey, it was tasty as.

£8.50 // Borough Market, Cathedral St, London SE1 9AL

4. Tombo, South Kensington 

Possibly the best matcha ice cream, outside Japan, is here in Tombo, London. The soft serve was just delish. There are more to Tombo than just ice cream though. My mouth was salivating over the Matcha Souffle Cheesecake and Aubergine Miso Soup that went past my wandering eye. Honestly, did not have time to try everything in the menu (with a busy day browsing museums nearby), but I'll be back!

£3.95 Soft Serve // 29 Thurloe Place | South Kensington, London

5. Ethiopiques, Upmarket, Brick Lane 

I stumbled across Ethiopiques by chance. Just a beautiful (and may I say, colourful) selection of healthy vegan salads and hot dishes. I'm loving the chickpeas, lentils and beetroot dishes. You can try a little bit of everything and it doesn't cost you much at all. Generous portion and just beautiful flavours. Served with 'Injere', a savoury pancake. I remembered leaving Brick Lane, very happy and thinking, that was amazing!
