Food | Healthy Recipes For Autumn

Healthy Recipes

Autumn is officially here! I cannot tell you how excited I am that it's autumn, basically the best season for getting back into baking and making new things in the kitchen. The team at Erbology kindly sent out a package full of healthy products for me to try and make some goodies with. So this blog post will include a few products from their website which I will include in a few recipes. Scroll down to see what goodies we can make with Chia PowderAlmondsOrganic Bergamot Shots and Aronia Berry Energy Balls.

Fruit Smoothie with a Shot of Bergamot

Use a blender and add all of the below ingredients in:

  • 1x chopped banana 
  • A handful of chopped strawberries
  • A glass of fruit juice (apple or pineapple or orange)
  • A tablespoon of chia powder
  • A couple of scoops of soya yoghurt (depending on how thick you like your smoothies - this is optional)
  • 1x Bergamot shot
This is one way of getting in your fruit and a shot of bergamot.

Orange & Carrot smoothie with Energy Balls

I found a brilliant healthy recipe on the Erbology website that themselves recommend when using the energy balls in smoothies:

  • Half a cup of oat/almond milk 
  • Half a cup of chopped carrots
  • 1x tbsp chopped ginger
  • 1x banana
  • 1x orange
  • 1 pack of Erbology energy balls
  • Top with a third of a teaspoon of chia seeds
You can of course just have these energy balls as a snack on their own.

Honey & Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees or Gas Mark 4.
  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • half tsp salt
In a mixing bowl or small bowl, add all the ingredients and stir together until all the almonds are coated. Can you smell the cinnamon? Good right?

Spread the almonds out on a baking tray, maybe use grease proof paper for this. Make sure they are all spread out and not on top of each other.

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the almonds are toasted and fragrant. Don't burn them like I did as I had the oven too high...whoops!

Let them cool a little and serve, or add them to pots for later on. They should last in the fridge in a plastic box for around 3-5 days.

This is a good little healthy snack to have and to add into a little plastic tub to take to work with you if you want to have a sweet treat without having to have a chocolate bar or something. But melting chocolate over these almonds is also a good idea. Thank me later...
