Chai Mylk Overnight Oats

Krista Densing

When you have a big box full of tasty dairy free mylks sitting in the kitchen you have to get inventive and think of new cool ways to use them. I love overnight oats and usually I use plain almond milk to make them but I thought using some of my flavoured mylks would be a cool alternative!

This would work with any of the flavours but I thought chai would be a fun one to test out and it tasted amazing. A really simple recipe that you can prepare the night before and have sitting in the fridge waiting for you the next day.
You will need:
1 cup of Rebel Kitchen chai mylk (Just drink the rest of the carton!)
2/3 of a cup of oats
2 tbsps chia seeds
1 small mashed banana
Mix everything together in a bowl and leave in the fridge to sit overnight and thicken up. In the morning top with fruit, nuts, granola or whatever else your heart desires!

Home-made Vitamin Waters

Krista Densing

Hi everyone, I hope you all started the new week well!

So something we should always remember (besides eating healthy superfoods on a regular basis ? ) is to stay hydrated throughout the day. Even though this might seem rather like a recipe for the summer, I think it’s also quite useful for the winter months too, because usually then the air is drier and especially in closed and heated rooms, air humidity is quite low.

I got inspired to make these waters by various posts I saw on instagram and my lovely friend, the gmo-free girl. She states some really good points about why you should make your own Vitamin water and how the store-bought ones are really full of chemicals. In addition, these home-flavored waters are also great for everyone who thinks plain water is boring and has trouble drinking enough of it. Drinking enough water is so important for our overall health and that all organs function properly. See this table for more information about how much water you should drink and why drinking enough water is important and good for you:

I personally don’t have issues drinking enough water, I love it, and I get naturally thirsty if I don’t drink regularly, I guess it just became a habit. And honestly, when I don’t drink enough, my lips get totally dry and my metabolism slows down. So I make sure to always have a glass or bottle of water close to me.

Anyways, about these vitamin waters: I just wanted to make them, because I was curious how they would taste and because they looked so pretty. Yes, that was probably the main reason. They look soooo pretty! And I wanted to take a picture of them! Hahha…I hope you don’t find that weird ?

These waters are super easy to make and you can choose the combinations of fruits and herbs you like most.

Ingredients:

Fresh water
Herbs and fruits of your choice
Recommended combinations are for example: lemon & strawberries, lime & mint, cucumber & ginger, berries

Raspberry and Mint Smoothie

Krista Densing

This smoothie is super thick and creamy, it's honestly just dreamy. The mint is a unique kick of flavour that pairs so nicely with the raspberries and almost makes it taste like a cocktail! Plus the oats make it more filling which is ideal if you're like me and can't stay full for long on a smoothie, regardless of the size!

You will need:
3 frozen bananas
1 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup oats
2-3 medjool dates
A of small handful mint leaves (around 5-10 leaves)
Simply add everything to your blender and blend up well. Pour into a glass (or a jar for hipster status) and top with extra mint leaves for a pop of colour or more raspberries, up to you!
