Due to a long standing family joke, my sister will not believe the title of this post or smoothie since we both notoriously despise black forest gateau with intense ernest! But like all great inventions, I created it by accident and now there is no going back.
This smoothie is so delicious that I can assure you that whether a lover or hater of the infamous dessert you will soon be stashing frozen cherries in your freezer in order to whip this up.
Needless to say it is also packed with loads of nutrients, so more of the pleasure and less of the guilt, just how we like it!
Without further ado let us begin.
2 C coconut water
2 C frozen cherries
1 frozen banana
1 tsp Manuka honey
2 Tbs coconut nectar
squirt of raw agave or yacon syrup
1/2 tsp blue green algae
10 chlorella tablets
1 tsp maca powder
1 Tbs mesquite powder
1 Tbs raw cacao
1 Tbs almond butter
Blend them all in a vitamix or any blender capable of crushing ice
Best served with a straw and a smile. See picture below to create smile.
Wishing you health always,
Today is a double celebration ~ it’s Women’s Day and we reached 700 likes on our FaceBook page!
Does it get any better? Of course it does!! This is P.U.G Project baby!
That’s why I’m giving you this recipe to make these easy peasy, yummy for your mummy or your tummy creamy vanilla chocolates.
Best of all they are totally raw, totally vegan and totally guilt free! Enjoy x
Creamy Vanilla Chocolates (yields @12 bars or @50 pieces)
2 C coconut flour
2 C cacao butter (melted)
1 Tbs raw vanilla powder
3 pinches of salt
How to do eeet…
Melt the cacao butter in a bain marie or dehydrator
Whilst this happend you can combine the flour, vanilla and salt
In a blender combine all your ingredients and combine until smooth. At this stage it will look quite dark and unpromising, but as long as its all blended you will be good to go.
Lastly distribute the mix into chocolate moulds or spread thinly onto a baking sheet and place in the fridge to set et voila!
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
Love begins within, and loving yourself is the sexiest thing you can do.
You won’t find it on a shelf or crammed into an advertising orifice. You don’t need single red roses wrapped in cellophane, or a nude kissogram to serenade you. No.
All you need is you.
Every year you know the score, your body, mind, soul and wallet are still recuperating from the Christmas ~ shall we call it “cheer”? When all of a sudden every marketing orifice gets bombed with hearts, cellophane roses and slogans, screaming ‘buy me now!’
Don’t get me wrong I’m all down for the lurve – hell yeah – in fact I’m so super down for it that I believe every day could, should and would be a love fest, if we could only learn to love ourselves.
Self love truly is the foundation to build your life upon. Without it you will constantly be looking to the external world and outside influences in order to achieve happiness, fulfilment and even contentment. That ma cherie is a dangerous mistake that most of us make, a lot of the time.
Ideas to help let the self lurve flow:
Open up the heart centre with some yoga. Why not try this relaxing restorative yoga set? 60 mins Yin Yoga Class
Bathe – Make this really simple body scrub then soak it away in a warm soothing bath How to make a natural body scrub for silky smooth skin
Eat heart centred foods like raw chocolate. Try this raw chocolate recipe from one of my favourite raw chef’s Dara Dubinet ~ Raw Chocolate Recipe
Spoil yourself with a massage, walk in nature, watch something you enjoy, read…
However you choose to this valentines ~ let the love flow!!
I salute you x
It was with gratitude that I was well enough to attend the walk the following two, consecutive years. But due to editing the PinUp Gals Project documentary last year I missed the walk and was determined to make this year’s one.
Since Mouth cancer kills over half of it’s sufferers due to late detection I know how lucky I am to have made it through to the other side.
This year some of The PinUp Gals Project supporters and I jumbled together wearing our limited edition T-Shirts and famous salutes for the walk.
Every year people from all over the UK gather together, with their friends, family, children and pets to raise money and show their support by doing the sponsored 10k walk in Hyde Park.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation works hard to raise awareness of oral cancer and offer support for those that have experienced it. It’s FREE to sign up and it’s always a guaranteed way to lift the spirits and feel good.
More people die of mouth cancer each year than breast, cervical or skin cancer. This is mostly due to the lack of awareness about this type of cancer, meaning that it can go undetected until it has moved into the later stages. ANYTHING that does NOT heal in the mouth within 3 weeks MUST be investigated. My tumour was painfully present for around 6 years before it was diagnosed and the Dr’s could not believe that I was still alive! For more information about Mouth cancer or the foundation please visit their site www.mouthcancerfoundation.org.

This year was the biggest so far and we aim to help make next year even bigger
I salute you,

Check out our new teaser below!
This year I’ve rekindled some amazing old friendships and established some fantastic new ones. I’ve let go of excess emotional and physical baggage, not to mention weight! Health has visited me more often than sickness thanks to a mostly raw diet and good old fashioned beautiful exercise!
The project was propelled to new heights by the completion of the short version of the documentary and it’s winning Best Documentary Award 2011! We were joined by celebrated canzer Survivors Sally Arnold, Lisa Lynch and Kelly Short and I was honoured to pose on the front cover of New Trespass magazine and in a wonderful photo-story featuring Rachel Friere couture.
I am so grateful for all the abundance that we continue to be surrounded by and all the lessons, health and love that this year has brought to us all. The adventure continues with many exciting things to follow in the new year for us and for you, I can hardly wait to share it all with you!
11/11/11 marked the beginning of the Age of Aquarius a blessed time for us all where the world becomes open and abundant with possibilities as we continue to unify. This sacred year 2012 I wish you all the happiness, health, dancing ponies and green smoothies that your hearts desire. Thank you to all that have supported us on this on going journey, I am blessed to walk the path along side you all.
Happy New Year!!
May you always be blessed,
