Kombucha Smoothie Recipe aka Healthy Root Beer Float with only 3 ingredients. Use store bought kombucha or learn making kombucha from scratch, then flavouring and making it fizzy. So easy, prepare to be amazed like never before! | ifoodreal.com

Kombucha smoothie. No, I’m not kidding. Think of a root beer float, just instead of ice cream – pureed with creamy almond milk frozen fruit, and in place of pop – kombucha. The same sweet treat floating in a fizzy drink but healthy. And it literally takes 3-4 ingredients, blender and 2 minutes and. Perfection for summer and a breath of fresh air in a tired smoothie world. Don’t you think?!

Did you think I would just stop with my “kombucha business”?! I’m literally obsessed, especially during hot summer days. Good news for those of you who are still on a fence re: making kombucha from scratch, you can use store-bought kombucha. For those who have successfully faced their fears and successfully grew a SCOBY (please step forward and “raise your hand” in the comments to encourage our “sisters”), after you completed this step => how to make kombucha fizzy, you can whip up this healthy kombucha smoothie a.k.a healthy root beer float.

And while all of the above might sound overwhelming, trust me these floats are a breeze to make as long as you keep kombucha, frozen fruit and almond milk on hand. And what real foodie 2017 doesn’t?! Read more »

Hi-hi. Doesn’t this kombucha look like Shirley Temple?! Just so much better for you! After making kombucha from scratch, I was quite a happy camper without much desire to make kombucha fizzy. However (there is always “a however” or “but”), once I dropped a few pieces of fresh ginger in a bottle and let kombucha ferment overnight – there was no way back. Next day, I was drinking ginger ale without sugar full of probiotics. And what happened next was even more mind blowing – my kids LOVED fruit…

This chickpea avocado salad is the best chickpea salad recipe I ever made – with tomato, avocado, cucumber and simple dressing consisting of olive oil, salt and freshly cracked pepper; with red onion slices big enough for kids to pick out and adults to enjoy. The salad is so hearty, it can be a main course for lunch, mixed with quinoa or pasta for dinner, or a potluck star. This chickpea avocado salad recipe is similar to my other hearty salads recipes: Mango Black Bean Salad, Creamy Mexican Kale Salad or…

This miso marinated chicken is one of those recipes that you can quickly throw together and forget about for a few days, preparing in advance for the occasion (Father’s Day?!) or cook as time allows (going camping?!). Perfectly seasoned, juicy and super easy miso marinated chicken recipe that is a sure crowd pleaser, for adults and kids. Miso marinade for chicken is based on miso paste, a fermented mix of soy and rice that is rich in probiotics. You can pick it up in a refrigerated health/natural food section of…

Zucchini and tuna are a match made in heaven, just like rhubarb and strawberry. First one undeniably dry and salty, and latter bursting with water and bland. Combine both, flavour with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a bit of mayo (those few tablespoons make all the difference, and I prefer organic or avocado oil kind), add just enough to “glue” whole grain flour, and you have got the most delicious tuna zucchini fritters kids will love. And we are going heavy on zucchini – 2.5 lbs. Courgette and tuna…

Whether on “Oops, what’s for dinner?!” day, lunch or after an exhausting shopping trip to Costco, I have made healthy instant ramen numerous times in the past month. We haven’t bought ramen for over a decade for health reasons but Costco has convinced me I should get not 1 but 2 packs of Lotus Foods organic ramen on sale. Inside are plain noodle blocks which at first upset me (no poisonous packets but no healthy seasoning either), but I quickly saw fun in making the most flavourful healthy instant…

These ground chicken tacos are the most simple tacos I have made yet. To make the taco filling healthy, I used only 1 lb of ground chicken breast and loaded it with over 1 lb of veggies. And the best part is – there aren’t much extra fixins to prepare because they are all mixed in one humongous size skillet. For once, I made Taco Tuesday a real thing within half an hour. If you personally do not feel like chicken tacos right now, check out my easy shrimp tacos…

Got “a kombucha problem” and don’t like how much it costs? I don’t blame you. Store-bought kombucha costs as much as wine. Shocked? I was too. This reason alone should be enough to get over any aversion towards the jelly fish like looking slimy kombucha “mushroom” and learn making kombucha from scratch at home. Especially with summer around the corner, there is nothing better than a glass of iced kombucha. Not convinced enough? Here is simple math. Do you usually pay $4 per a 16 oz bottle of store…

Ataulfo mangoes are on special in every grocery store in May, $7-10 a box. Also known as champagne mango, smaller in size than “regular” (Tommy Atkins) mango, and of bright yellow colour, Ataulfo mango is very sweet and might become your new go-to mango. It’s exquisite. Whether in a mango slaw or tuna salad with avocado, champagne mango is not just for dessert. The base of this Thai mango curry consists of usual suspects – onions and Thai curry paste, just like in Thai shrimp curry recipe (where squash adds sweetness similar…

How can you “eat your veggies” and also enjoy a bowl of pasta? Just make this florentine pasta recipe where fresh garden meets whole grains in a very generous amount of flavourful Greek yogurt based sauce. Because what pasta is good without sauce unless you are a 5 year old?! I won’t lie, there was a period of time when carbs were my enemy. I cooked spaghetti squash mac and cheese and baked cauliflower biscuits. And don’t get me wrong, these dishes are delicious but I am way more…
