Merry Christmas Morning!

I hope Santa was very good to all of you. For me, I’m happy to just have the indulgence to stay in bed with a cup of herbal tea, and not worry about getting up at 4:30am to start my day. This is the best present of all:  Time for myself.

I’ve made this crazy delicious (filling) smoothie for the last 4 mornings, including just now, on Christmas Morning,  and I have to say that it’s an incredible meal-replacement, healthy ‘Breakfast Smoothie’ that also puts me in the festive spirit at the same time. It’s addictive, full of healthy fats (from the coconut milk, avocado and chia seeds), protein and fibre and really, this can be an incredible smoothie for all seasons.

In actuality, you don’t need to have this just for breakfast either. It’s the perfect go-to festive smoothie for any time during the day.  You could consider it with a little rum or brandy when guests arrive for a little Christmas merriment too. (yum) | | egg nog smoothie

Egg Nog (Vegan) – Serves two


2 cups Almond Milk
½ cup canned coconut milk, chilled and shaken well
1 frozen banana (in pieces)
5 pitted dates, soaked (softened)
½ avocado
2 Tbsp vanilla protein powder (I use Sun Warrior or Vega)
1 tsp lemon juice
4 Tbsp organic maple syrup
1 tsp organic nutmeg
½ tsp organic cinnamon
¼ tsp organic allspice
pinch ground organic cloves
½ tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp chia seeds




Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well for about 2 minutes.

Happy Christmas and Merry Holidays! Enjoy your day in whatever way you choose and first and foremost, be kind to yourself today (and treat your body right too).
