The benefits of fresh produce is undeniable. Check out some of our favourite healthy recipes using all sorts of Green Goodness.

Green Pea Soup


• 1 Tbsp butter
• 1 Tbsp olive oil
• 3 cloves garlic
• 1 leek, sliced
• 1 large potato
• 2 cups frozen peas
• 1.5 L vegetable stock
• Fresh parsley and basil
• 1 Tbsp lemon juice
• Greek yogurt or cream
• Salt and pepper to taste


Start with preparing the vegetables, peel and dice the garlic cloves, and potato. Slice the leek. Next, put oil and butter in a large pot on medium-high heat. Sauté the garlic and leek until translucent, then add the potato and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Stir every now and then. Add the vegetable stock, peas and roughly chopped fresh herbs. Bring ingredients to the boil, then reduce temperature to low, allowing ingredients to simmer for approximately 15 minutes, or until the potato is cooked. Once ready, remove a handful of peas and set aside
to garnish your soup with after you blend the mix. Add lemon juice to your soup and transfer the soup mix to a blender. Don’t overpack the blender, you may need to halve the mix and blend twice.

To serve, drizzle with Greek yogurt or cream and season with salt and pepper to taste. Decorate with blanched whole peas and fresh herbs, and finally some fresh crispy bread.

Tip: if you don’t have a leek, substitute with an onion.


Matcha Smoothie Bowl

Makes 2 servings

Smoothie Ingredients

• 1 ½ frozen bananas
• ½ cup frozen avocado
• ½ cup frozen cucumber
• 1 handful spinach
• ½ cup of almond milk
• ½ tsp spirulina
• 1 tsp matcha powder
• ½ tsp maca powder
• ½ tsp cinnamon
• Fresh mint (about 10 leaves)

Topping Suggestions

• Sliced kiwifruit
• Muesli
• Blueberries
• Chia seeds
• Pumpkin seeds
• Mint
• Flaxseeds
• Coconut
• Lime


Prep your frozen ingredients the night before. You will need to cut the cucumber, avocado and banana into blendable cubes. Place all smoothie ingredients into a blender, and combine until smooth. Make sure to not add too much almond milk to keep a thick smoothie consistency, you want to be able to eat it with a spoon, not straw. Split mix into two bowls and top with an assortment of your favourite fruits, seeds, and nuts. We love the freshness of lime and mint with the bowl as well. You can also make tropical smoothie bowls by adding frozen mango to the mix.
