GF Blueberry Scones w/Lemon Drizzle

This recipe is simple, super scrumptious and allergy friendly/adaptable. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free. You can make this recipe vegan by using an egg replacement (more power to ya)!

Enjoy…share…and let me know if you have any feedback!

I try not to overdo it, but sweets are my weakness and I love baking! I fell in love with baking when I was in my first couple of gluten-free years around 2014, also not too long after starting this blog. I would find bliss in every step, especially the photos and the anticipation of tasty results. Nowadays I don’t have as much leisure and I’m lucky if I can get one recipe post done a month, but I try because it’s a hobby and sharing that brings me joy. Follow your bliss right? ๐Ÿ™‚

This smoothie was so super yummy it nearly knocked my socks off (because I was dancing around in excitement while drinking it lol no but really it’s amazing)

This green smoothie is nutrient dense with energizing matcha, skin radiating fruits and greens, good fats, and healthy sugar sources.

I enjoyed this with some gluten free oatmeal after a fully body workout.


What You’ll Need:

1 cup Almond Milk

1 cup frozen banana

1/2 cup frozen pineapple

2/3 cup spring mix greens

1 tsp spirulina crunch

1/2 tsp matcha powder

Boot the Bloatย 

Cheers to a simple smoothie that will lighten your load…literally. If you’re feeling bloated or swollen, this mix is packed with some spice and fruits  that can serve as a natural diuretic. ( and it tastes good!)  

Basically a diuretic increases the amount of salt excreted in urine and helps relieves water retention  swelling (edema) and bloating.

 

Blend together the following and enjoy! 

Ingredients: 

1/4 cucumber (medium size)

1 gala Apple

1 cup pineapple 

1/2 Banana 

1 squeeze of lime wedge

1/2 tsp turmeric 

1/3 cup of water 

1/3 cup of crushed ice
