Rebel Kitchen Smoothies

You must know by now, but I’ll reiterate just in case. I’m Rebel Kitchen’s blogger of the month, so throughout August I’ve been writing about them and their awesome mylks (you can find those posts here and here). I’m also running a competition to win the whole range on Twitter here! Smoothies are a fast foodie’s best friend, all the recipes below will take you way under five minutes (unless you count clean-up time, those blender blades are a real pain) and they’re exceedingly delicious to boot. I’ve avoided the new-fangled health fanatic ingredients for the following reasons: 1) They can be very difficult to source 2) I’m too lazy to source them. So you won’t need to google the location of your closest Whole Foods to enjoy these. Instructions are pretty basic, just take the ingredients listed, throw them into your blender and whizz until smooth.

Chocolate Mylk Pancakes

If the adverts on TV are anything to go by, it looks like back to school season is almost upon us. It’s been a long time since I carried a lunchbox to school and I suspect it’ll be a long time ’til I pack one for my own children (they’re yet to exist) but I’m pretty sure these would go down well on that first dreaded Monday. These pancakes aren’t the crepe kind, they’re much more similar to the ones you can buy in supermarkets to toast and put a little butter on. Bonus points for the fact that they keep for a couple of days in an airtight container. I made these using Rebel Kitchen’s Chocolate Mylk, and to be inkeeping with their no-nonsense  food message, this recipe is 100% vegan and as no-nasties as possible. When I made the pancakes you see pictured, I only used 1 teaspoon of cocoa – this wasn’t enough, so I’ve recommended a higher amount in the recipe. Don’t freak out if they’re a darker colour than the …

Rebel Kitchen’s Kick Ass Mission

For those that don’t already know, I’m Rebel Kitchen’s blogger of the month for August. (Enter my celebratory Twitter competition here!) I first came across the good people at Rebel Kitchen while researching my eBook and already recognised them as a brand who were fighting the good fight against bad ingredients, so I was delighted to be given the opportunity to represent them this month. To give you an idea of just how great these guys are, here’s an excerpt from their mission statement: “Yeah, we’re hard-wired to like salt, sweet and fat because in nature we didn’t get much of it and had to work hard to find it. But mother nature didn’t plan on big corporations processing food within an inch of it’s life , lacing it with too much sugar, salt, fat, additives and preservatives, where the lists of ingredients are so long and so hard to pronounce that they are no longer even food.” I don’t know about you but I couldn’t have said that better myself, and it sums up …
