I don't drink alcohol, never have and never will. I hate the taste of it (and the effect it has on people). I prefer healthy juices and smoothies instead and I love home made teas as well. Smoothies can be filling and are perfect for a healthy start to the day. Freshly squeezed juices are refreshing and perfect on a hot summer's day.

My favourite remedy when I have a sore throat

A Drink for Sore Throats

I don't get a sore throat often and I rarely ever get a flu or a cold (thankfully).

A delicious smoothie although very sticky when in a hot car!

A Very Sticky Nairobi Banana Smoothie

Oh dear, oh dear. It was September 2007 and me and my husband were travelling in Kenya. We were waiting to fly back to London and had a couple of hours to spend.

A light and refreshing drink and cleansing as well

Apple and Grape Juice

This is one of the shortest recipe on my website. Short doesn't have to be bad though, right? This is a very refreshing and lovely drink, especially in summer.

A very filling and heart healthy smoothie

Avocado and Brazil Nut Smoothie

This smoothie is very filling, almost like a full meal. It is packed with fibre, protein, vitamins A, C and E, calcium and healthy, mono-unsaturated fats.

A very good smoothie for the digestive system

Avocado and Pineapple Smoothie

This is an excellent smoothie for the whole family. The pineapple contains Bromelain which is an enzyme that helps the digestive system.

A decadent and filling banana and coconut smoothie

Banana and Coconut Smoothie

This is a very filling, yet tasty smoothie which has a strong coconut taste. You can dilute the coconut taste if you prefer, by using half soy milk and half coconut milk.

Smoothie packed with fibre, protein and potassium

Banana and Date Smoothie

One night, when home alone (Jóhannes was on a business trip in Portugal) I looked into my fridge and there was nothing in it apart from soy yoghurt and nail polish.

A filling and healthy smoothie, perfect for breakfast or post-workout

Banana and Peanut Butter Smoothie

This is one of the creamiest, loveliest, smoothie ever.

A smoothie rich in fibre, antioxidants and calcium

Blueberry and Pear Smoothie

Pears are quite amazing.

So delicious and so simple

Blueberry Tea

This is my favourite tea when blueberries are in season although I often make it with frozen blueberries as well.

A delicious start to the day

Breakfast in a Glass

I know some people that are not keen on breakfasts and I have often told them that it is not a very good idea to start the day without filling your muscles and brain with energy.

A very healthy juice, packed with vitamins

Carrot and Celery Juice

Carrots and celery are a classic combination in the juice world and no wonder, I think it is amazing.

A lovely juice, and packed with antioxidants and vitamins

Carrot and Fruit Juice

This is more like a smoothie or a thick juice since the pear and nectarine are blended in a food processor or blender. You can also juice the fruits if you prefer a thinner juice.

A healthy and filling drink, perfect for a post-workout boost

Cashew and Banana Milk

This is more of a milk than a smoothie since it is not very thick.

A very refreshing and cleansing drink, perfect for detox

Cleansing Citrus Juice

When I was making this drink for the first time it reminded me so much of Kenya. The reason for that is that in Kenya you get green oranges.

Whenever I am felling lethargic or run down, I make this delicious smoothie

Cleansing Iron Rich Smoothie

This smoothie is particularly good for women since it is packed with iron from the beets (beetroots) and folic acid which is important for pregnant women.

A cleansing drink, packed with vitamins

Cleansing Pear, Carrot and Ginger Juice

This is a fantastic juice which I absolutely love and make several times each month.

I absolutely love the cooling effect of this drink

Cooling Watermelon Drink from Mombasa

I will never forget the time we arrived in Diani Beach, Mombasa (Kenya), 2006. It was spring and the sun was absolutely baking.

Crowberry and Ginger Smoothie

During my childhood, every autumn my parents picked crowberries and blueberries.

A very refreshing detox drink

Ginger Drink

This is a very refreshing drink, especially in the summer time, or when you have a cold. It is also good if you are detoxing.
