Hello everyone, long time no “see”!
I’ve been abroad for quite some time, those of you who follow me on Snap chat may already know. My Snap is “passion4baking” if you want to join me “behind the scenes”.
In a few weeks’ time I will launch my brand new digital magazine called “Passion4Baking The Magazine”. Everything will be in English, and the first issue is free.
The magazine is the reason I went to the USA – I went there to take some fabulous photos. The location was an amazing farm which is the home of my two friends, Melissa and Steve.
You will get to read and see more about them when the Holiday issue is launched this November.
I came back home just to launch my new book “Manuela’s baking bible”, a book which contains 175 amazing recipes.
Even if I love making books, I’ve decided not to write any more books for at least 5 years. I think Manuela’s Baking bible will keep you busy for quite some time…. Hopefully the English version will be published in the near future.
From now on I will use all my time on the magazine, and I think many of you will enjoy it as much as I enjoy making it.
That said, I’ll also use more time on my blog, and on developing my YouTube channel.
If you’d like to win a signed copy of my book, just write your name in the comments below. NOTE: the book is in Norwegian.
Ok, now to the recipe.
I just love a good smoothie, and a few weeks ago I was at a local shopping mall where there is a juice bar called “The Nakedjuicebar”.
I had one called Berrie liqorice and gosh it was so delicious… I checked their website for the ingredients, and I got to try my new Oster blender.
All I can say is WOW – what a powerful blender! Lucky for you, I get to have a Give-away with Oster blender a bit closer to Christmas, maybe you’re the lucky one?
Berry Liqurice smoothie (serves 2)
- 1 banana
- 7 raspberries (fresh or frozen)
- 2 splashes vanilla yogurt (I use 0,5% fat yogurt)
- 1 large glass oat milk
- 3/4 tsp raw licorice powder (I use Johan Bülow)
- ice cubes (optional)
Put everything into the blender.
I use this raw licorice powder, soo good…
Ready in no time.
If you are fan of licorice you’ll love this – the combination of raspberries + licorice = heaven.
If you like tropical flavours you’ll love this smoothie – Tropic Sunrise Crusher.
Tropic Sunrise Crusher (serves 2)
- 1 mango
- 2 passion fruit
- 5 strawberries
- 1 glass freshly juiced apple juice
- 1 glass freshly squeezed orange juice
- ice cubes (optional)
Same thing here: just put everything into the Oster blender and blend for a few seconds – smoothie ready.
This recipe is also inspired by the menu at “The Nakedjuicebar”, and the flavour is simply amazing.
I wish you all a great week!
