Tesss Blueberry Breakfast Tart + Mystical Mango Smoothies

August 13 2015 My New Roots 

Tesss Blueberry Breakfast Tart + Mystical Mango Smoothies Summer finally came to Denmark and I am one happy, happy person. Life just seems easier when the sun is shining and I dont need to wear a snowsuit. In August. I am also in the groove of cooking less, eating more simple, raw foods and whizzing stuff up in a blender. Tess Masterss book, The Blender Girl Smoothies could not have come out at a better time considering Im making smoothies round the clock and looking for some new inspiration. With over 100 gluten-free, vegan recipes her book is kind of like the bible of blended drinks. What I appreciate is that you can look up recipes according to what effects you are after (to detoxify, alkalize, boost immunity, reduce inflammation etc.) and the chapters are divided into types of recipes (clean and green, light and fruity, dessert...). There are tips and tricks, a thorough pantry section and a good resource list for those of us who are new to this blending world. Because Im such a wild cat, I chose to make two recipes from the book and combine them. Oh yea. The Blueberry Breakfast Tart and Mystical Mango both sounded like heaven-in-a-glass to me and the combo, I must say, is over the top. I know it may seem a tad excessive to make two smoothies, but if youre serving these at a brunch or something, its really fun (and beautiful!) to see them swirled together in a glass. The blueberry one is really what it claims to be: liquid breakfast. With cashews, oats and maple syrup (which I didnt use actually) it will wake you up and fuel you through a long morning of summer-ness. The mango smoothie is bright and tropical tasting - I loved the lime, orange and cardamom flavours in there! Whooo-hooo! All I can say is, way to go, Tess! Whether or not youre a smoothie pro or just getting started, this is the book to get your fruit-sticky hands on.     Print recipe     Blueberry Breakfast Tart This tastes like a Pop-Tart, and is great for digestive health. Oats are a wonderful source of fiber, to combat carcinogens in the gastrointestinal tract. And both oats and blueberries become gelatinous in the colon, helping to expel toxins and lower blood pressure and cholesterol. 2 1/­­4 cups (540ml) unsweetened almond milk, hemp milk, or rice milk (strained if homemade) 1/­­3 cup (45g) raw unsalted cashews, soaked 1/­­3 cup (30g) rolled oats, soaked 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, plus more to taste 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1/­­2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 cups (320g) frozen blueberries Throw the milk, cashews, and oats into your blender and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until creamy. Add the remaining ingredients and blast again on high for about 20 seconds, until smooth. Tweak the maple syrup to taste. Boosters 1 tablespoon maqui powder 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds 1 teaspoon coconut oil Mystical Mango With a creamy texture and exquisite flavour, this immunity blend is fabulous for collagen formation and glowing skin, hair, and nails. Mangos enzymes and vitamins A, C, and E cleanse the liver and aid digestion, and its potassium and fiber help regulate blood pressure and cholesterol. This one will make your heart happy. 1 1/­­2 cups (360ml) freshly squeezed orange juice 1/­­2 cup (120ml) water, plus more as needed 1/­­2 medium avocado, pitted and peeled 1/­­2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest 1/­­8 teaspoon ground cardamom 2 cups (320g) frozen mango 1/­­2 cup (62g) ice cubes Throw all of the ingredients into your blender and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. Add more water as needed to blend. Boosters 1/­­2 teaspoon wheatgrass powder 1 teaspoon chia seeds 1 teaspoon flaxseed oil I hope you guys are having a rad summer. Much love to all! xo, Sarah B
