Winter Magic Potion: Apple Cinnamon Smoothie Recipe

apple_cinnamon_smoothie_TTL

There is something magical in the winter. With the super low temperature and (hopefully) snow, it is not only about making angles (or eagles – as they are referred to in Poland) and having snow fights. Or memories of snow fights. It is also about the magic that we can easily create inside, with a little help of flavour and scent.

I Ioooove starting my days with this apple cinnamon smoothie, even with the sugar in it. The moment the apples start filling the air with their scent, I know that today is gonna be a good day. And usually – it is!

The Best Tasting Whey I’ve Ever Tried

Photography by Kamila Gornia

Okay, so I have been blogging for several years now. And in all those years, I have gotten the pleasure of trying many different types and brands of protein powders. Some were better than others. Some were quite great, in fact.

But it wasn’t until I tried TastyWHEY by Adaptogen that I was taken aback.

There are a lot of protein powders that claim to be the best tasting. so when I saw that Adaptogen claims to taste like a milkshake, you can only imagine how much I believed it. (read: I took it with a grain of salt, not literally).

But then I tried it with almond milk… Wow. I was shocked. It REALLY did taste like a milkshake. I didn’t blend it or anything. Just the shaker bottle I was provided (which rocks by the way), almond milk, and the protein powder… and seriously delicious!

But, hey that might have been because of the almond milk. Making it creamier. So I wasn’t TOTALLY sold yet. Then I took some with me to work and had it with water.

That’s when I was REALLY shocked. Because it STILL tasted milkshakey and it was just SO good! I’ve never had this happen with any protein shake that only requires water to taste this good.

Wow.

And no, I don’t say this a lot. I haven’t said this before. I’m not just saying that.

So what IS Adaptogen’s TastyWHEY? I’m sure now you wanna know more, right?

Amazing Pumpkin and White Beans Hummus to Astonish Your Guests and Yourself

I love pumpkin. It is like a lady of many faces, elegant and crazy, fulfilling and leaving you hungry for more, sweet and spicy, delicate… So, whenever the pumpkin season opens, I am as excited as only a woman in love can be. And this year I made it my priority to discover even more recipes with this orange heaven. This year, I also went for gluten-free so I had an extra motivation to incorporate even more veggies into my diet. And to make people around me follow my passion.

And so the amazing pumpkin and white beans hummus was born. When I first tried it, oh yes, I was astonished. And so was everyone who shared this dish with me!
