My gorgeous sister Isabelle (@isabellefisherr) shares with us her favourite healthy afternoon snacks that will keep your blood sugar levels stable and your metabolism going!
- I love making a quick carrot mug cake when I’m short for time. In a mug add: 2 tbsp almond meal, ½ grated carrot, 1 tsp tahini, 1 egg, 1 tsp raw honey, dash almond milk, sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Microwave for 40-50 seconds. Top with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and crushed walnuts.
- Chocolate milkshake– 1 cup cashew, almond or coconut milk, 1 tbsp cacao, 1 tbsp almond butter or macadamia butter, 2 medjool dates, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp mesquite- blend together in a high-speed blender (I use a Vitamix).
- I love making a tropical smoothie. In a blender throw 1 cup frozen mango, ½ cup frozen berries, ½ cup coconut or almond milk, ½ cup cold water, 1 tbsp coconut protein and a small handful of cashews and blend until smooth and creamy! I love putting mine in a bowl and eat with a spoon.
- I am obsessed with medjool dates at the moment! I have about 3 filled with a teaspoon of almond butter… it tastes like caramel! I have this alongside a chai tea and some fresh fruit.
- Greek yoghurt is another go-to snack for me- I love it with chopped strawberries, blueberries, kiwi fruit, crushed almonds and macadamias, a teaspoon of raw honey and cinnamon!
- Mung bean crackers with smashed avo: ½ an avocado smashed with lemon juice, olive oil, Himalayan salt and cracked pepper.
- One of Sophie’s famous fudge brownies with hot caramel sauce! One of my favourite treats- so decadent!
- A bowl of Sophie’s creamy pumpkin soup (great dinner starter too or a great lunch with a side of rye bread!)
- A thick hot chocolate made with coconut milk and cacao (again, a Coconut and Bliss specialty!)
- 2 or 3 fudgey tahini bliss balls (recipe from Sophie’s ebook)
- A grilled banana cut lengthways, topped with 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp tahini and a sprinkle of cinnamon mixed together.
- A handful of tamari almonds (available from health food shops) and an apple.
