Golden Kiwi Almond Shake

Golden Kiwi Almond Shake

We managed to spend $165 dollars for less than one minute of locksmith work this week. This is the joy of locking yourself out of the house together trying to find out what the people lurking in front of your house with torches are doing.

Things we have learnt:
Ally – Pick up your keys before you walk outside because Kam may follow you out 5 min later and shut the door behind you both.
Kam – If Ally leaves the door wide open when she’s outside, there is probably a reason.

I at least got to have a sleep-in the next morning (8am instead of 6am) and after plowing through a chunk of big assignment IΒ  looked up and realised it was 1pm. I hadn’t even eaten breakfast yet! With references, paragraphs and other assignment-y things buzzing around my head, I needed a quick fueling up so I could dive back into in. That’s where a pulverizing blender comes in handy for some fast nosh. Nothing makes me happier than chopping, dropping and turning a dial to make breakfast.

Golden Kiwi Almond Shake

This shake makes enough for two people, but I drank it all and was full until 3pm when I made lunch. Chia seeds always give me an amazingly sustained energy boost while you might already know that I love kiwi fruit. Home-made magnesium and potassium rich almond milk went in with some super ripe bananas. All this with a cup of water added ended up being the consistency of a thick milkshake – oh and it tasted divine πŸ˜€

  1. had one this morning, but no bananas in this house yet, so had strawberries instead and rice milk, yum yum, or should i say nom nom!! πŸ˜›

  2. I am so sorry about that keys incident! So much money spent on that πŸ™

      Thankyou honey, and it did cheer me up πŸ™‚ Was funny about though – that night we locked ourselves out, and then two days later we got locked into a shopping centre carpark after watching a movie. The universe balancing things out and having a laugh at us maybe?

      1. Now thatΒ΄s really funny! Or a bad luck, it depends.. πŸ™‚ It might be better being locked right in the shopping center, not only in the carpark :))

      It works really well to stop blended drinks from seperating, while also providing lots of healthy liver and digestive benefits. I always forget to use it even my lechithin so try to sneak it into my diet now and then. Still have to use it in your amazing peanut butter cups, I didn’t get time to make them the other week πŸ™

  3. Sorry, late replies – haven’t been keeping an eye on FB much Whoops! Thankyou Aurora, it did suck but I’m over it now (still broke though!). Letitia, that sounds amazing! I made something similar a few weeks before this smoothie – but haven’t got around to writing the post yet. Waiting for more warm smoothie weather to blog it πŸ™‚

      Thanx honey, I have a strawberry smoothie post I’ve been hiding up my sleeve (or I’ve just been too busy the last month to post anything)! I honestly love kiwi fruit in EVERYTHING. Have been busily planting my new garden plants recently and feeling sad I don’t have the room to have twin kiwi plants to grow my own hehe.
