cake

Those who know me would say that I’m a little short on patience. I want to get things done fast, I move fast and I eat fast. It’s something I’m working on – I have to consciously remind myself that there’s no rush to do things.

My lack of patience is also probably why I tend to make things that are either low on fuss, done in a relatively short amount of time, or with few ingredients – which is why this three-ingredient recipe instantly caught my eye.

Who needs to buy a chocolate milkshake, thickshake or ice-cream drink concoction when this healthy smoothie tastes SO MUCH better and it’s good for you (you’ll be satisfying your chocolate craving while sneaking in some veggie goodness thanks to the baby spinach.

green tea geisha smoothie

And it’s so hard to get sick of them because there’s endless combinations of yummy (and healthy) ingredients to make something that almost resembles a naughty milkshake from the corner cafe (you know, the ones which are usually heavily sweetened with sugar, dairy and flavoured syrup!).

Layer chopped banana in between each stacked pancake

Making mum pancakes for Mother’s Day is about as original as making chocolate cake for a birthday, but what makes these special is that they’re decadent and delicious while being healthy at the same time. Definitely no butter, no milk and no flour was used in this recipe!

While recipes feature a lot on this blog, I’m definitely much more of an eater than a cook. I love nothing more than a lovely home cooked meal made by my mum (whose recipes I will be featuring on this blog soon!). But on the odd occasion I do like to make something for my parents.
