Each scoop is equivalent to 1/2 cup of coffee and it's packed with nutrients that assist in providing sustained energy. Perfect breakfast option!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Frozen Banana

watermelon-ice-cream-no-churn

You only need 3 ingredients, a high-powered blender and a freezer to make this amazing no churn, dairy-free watermelon ice cream. Naturally sweet watermelon is so refreshing on a summers day, and the coconut milk creates an irresistible creamy texture and adds tropical flavours.

To sweeten things up a little, we used AB Products Vanilla flavoured syrup. This syrup is a gem that originates from Paarl, where chef Abé Conradie developed a range of syrups and sauces for use in restaurant kitchens, and available at Pick’n’Pay, SPAR, and Checkers for use at home too. AB Products are used commercially to flavor desserts, coffee, smoothies, etcetera, and perfect to use at the comfort of your own home to swirl over or in desserts like ice cream, sorbets and milkshakes.

The ice cream takes about 3 hours to prepare, which is mostly waiting time, so this could well be your easiest dessert ever! The blending halfway the the freezing process eliminates the need for churning of an ice cream maker, and the result is a super soft and creamy ice cream!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Can Coconut Milk
  • 2 C Watermelon, cubed
  • 1/4 C AB Vanilla Flavoured Syrup
  •  

    Directions:

    Add all the ingredients to your Omniblend jug (the 2 liter jug with the tapered shape works best for this recipe). Blend from low-to-high for 60 seconds. Transfer to a loaf pan and place in the freezer for 2 hours and then remove. Break the frozen mixture into chunks and place back into the blender. Blend on high speed, using the tamper through the lid to push the ingredients into the blades until a creamy consistency is reached. Place back in a loaf pan or container and freeze for another 30 minutes to an hour to firm up.

    Serve into bowls and enjoy!

    berrylicious-smoothie-bowl

    Try this Berrylicious smoothie bowl and thank us later. This pretty bowl is packed with essential vitamins that gets its creaminess from … cauliflower! Yup, cauliflower for breakfast! Raw and even frozen for convenience, the cauliflower adds nutrients and texture, and doesn't add flavour, cause that's what the raspberry is for.

    The best part about smoothie bowls are the toppings. We used mixed berries and some cocoa nibs, and you can use chia and hemp seeds too, for added nutrients. Basically you can use any of your favorite toppings for the perfect snack or breakfast bowl.

    Raspberries are little powerhouses, as they're rich in antioxidants, vitamins and fiber. Using cauliflower adds not only creaminess, but also contains essential nutrients like fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, folate and manganese. A great substitute for bananas to lower sugar content.

    Ingredients:

  • ½ C Milk
  • 1 Cup Frozen Raspberries
  • 3 Tbsp. Yogurt
  • Handful of Cauliflower
  • Toppings:
  • Fresh Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries & Cocoa nibs
  •  

    Directions:

    Add the milk, yogurt, mixed berries and cauliflower to your OmniBlend jug, blend from low to high for 30 to 60 seconds or more until creamy.

    Scoop into a bowl and top with desired toppings.

     

     

     

     

    warm-berry-bowl

    Some mornings call for a warming breakfast, and this one is a vitamin booster of note! Even if you’re not crazy about oats, you’ll love this bowl as the berry flavours instantly energise your day.

    Oats are known to be a good source to lower cholesterol, and oats make such a good breakfast as it will sustain you an entire morning.

    Top with a sprinkle of coconut flakes, chia and almonds, and you could even add in some cocoa nibs.

    Ingredients:

  • 1/3 C Oats
  • ¾ C Frozen Mixed Berries
  • 1 Tsp Honey (optional)
  •  

    Serving suggestion:

  • Chia
  • Coconut Flakes (unsweetened)
  • Almonds
  •  

    Directions:

    Cook the oats with water. We used quick cooking oats, and cooked it in the microwave for 2 minutes. This generates about 1 cup of cooked oats.

    Defrost and warm the berry mix in the microwave.

    Add the berries to the OmniBlend jug, and add the oats on top. Drizzle a bit of honey in for a sweeter bowl. Start blending on low, increasing to medium, for 1 minute (or shorter if you prefer more texture).

    Serve in a bowl, add any toppings of your liking, and serve warm.

    This porridge recipe is great for those chocolate cravings early in the morning, without breaking your healthy routine. Each of the three basic ingredients (oats, cocoa, and cinnamon) have proven health benefits, which makes this an excellent breakfast for the whole family. This porridge is also nutritious and filling, so it’s a great start for an active day!

    To cook the porridge, you can also use Almond Milk, for a dairy free breakfast. What we love about this breakfast is that it is a great base that you can serve with your favourite fruit and nuts. So play around with the toppings to personalize it and suit your preference.

    For grinding the oats we use the 2 liter jug, which is best suited for grinding dry ingredients. This recipe is good for about 8 servings, so you can use, and make ahead for busy days.

  • 2 C Oats
  • 4 Tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  •

  • Walnuts
  •  

    Directions:

    Add the oats, cocoa, and cinnamon to your OmniBlend jug, blend from low to high for 30 to 60 seconds to form a fine powder.

    To cook, add 4 tablespoons of the porridge to a saucepan with the milk and heat gently over medium heat. Cook for 3 minutes or until it’s the consistency you like, stirring regularly, and add more liquid if necessary.

    Serve with sliced banana, strawberry, walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup to taste.

    Store the remainder of porridge base into an airtight container jar, ready to use.

    apple-date-smoothie-bowlSmoothie bowls are equally good on winter days! We love adding the warmer flavours of cinnamon, apple, and dates, which makes this a comfort food breakfast.

    Normally banana is added to smoothie bowls for creaminess and structure, and because we’ve soaked the chia in the cashew milk first, it’s become a pudding that creates the right creamy texture.

    Chia is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to rais HDL (the good) cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.

    Ingredients:

  • 2/3 C Cashew Milk
  • 1 tbsp Chia
  • 1 Apple, halved
  • 3 Dried, Pitted Dates
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  •  

    Directions:

    Soak the chia in the cashew milk for about 2 hours (or overnight, to have it ready for quick preparation in the morning). Add the chia pudding to the jug, along with the other ingredients. Blend starting on low speed, increasing to medium speed, using the tamper through the lid as required until you’ve reached a smooth texture (about 30 seconds).

    Decorate your bowl with coconut flakes, chia and a drizzle of honey.

    Elsa-Frozen-Breakfast-Bowl

    If your child eats all veggies without complaining, you probably belong to the lucky few! Reality is that most kids don’t seem to like their veggies, or at least the thought of it. So dinner time battles start, and that’s probably the last thing you feel like at the end of a long day!

    So we developed this broccoli breakfast bowl with banana and pear that contains all nutrients for a super healthy breakfast, so that you don’t have to fight that battle later in the day. We called it Elsa’s Frozen Breakfast Cup (cause why be more descriptive if nobody wants to know what’s in it anyway!)  

    If your child has a sweet tooth you could opt to add a teaspoon of honey, but the banana and pear already add their natural sweetness.

    We’re using frozen broccoli, which is as nutritious as fresh unfrozen broccoli, and makes it quick and easy to prepare. On top of that, when the smoothie bowl is cold, it will trick the taste buds, making it even easier to add greens. This serving of broccoli provides nearly 50% of the daily recommended vitamin C intake, so it's a super healthy breakfast to play and learn all day!

     

    Ingredients:
  • 80gr Frozen Broccoli
  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 1 Pear
  • ½ Cup Double Cream Plain Yoghurt
  •  

    Directions:

    Add all ingredients to your OmniBlend and start blending on low, increasing to high speed. Use the tamper as needed (only through the lid, by removing the cap from the lid). Then serve it in a cup that makes in a feast to eat, and top with some favorite fruit.
