Raspberries and mint

raspberry-mint-infused-waterThis easy summer drink is something every fruit lover should try out. I’ve been drinking this raspberry & lemon mint infused water for the entire week, it’s that good! And as I already said in my Instagram post, it’s so easy that I don’t even call this a recipe. Just put frozen or fresh raspberries and lemon mint in a glass jar and pour over some sparkling water. After five or ten minutes, you can enjoy in the most refreshing drink you can make at home!

And I finally have the opportunity to start using my new glass straws that I ordered on ebay a few months ago (the link is here if you are thinking of getting them yourself). Plastic straws are really bad for the environment and we all throw away way too much plastic every single day. For this reason, I simply decided to buy reusable glass straws – and they look so much cooler as well! I ordered three packs of four straws as I really didn’t believe all of them would make their way to my kitchen, but not a single one of them broke during shipping. I look forward to organizing a spring/summer cocktail party, these straws are surely gonna be a huge hit!

Winter smoothie

img_8268img_8160img_8199winter-smoothieimg_8299img_8290My smoothie obsession has kicked in once again! Although smoothies are perfect for warmer months, I cannot help but make myself a thick, creamy one that can slightly remind me of a dessert, haha! This winter smoothie has everything I need for a great start of the day: some bananas (which are really necessary for the texture), organic cacao powder for a hint of chocolate, blueberries for some vitamins and color, but also peanut butter for a richer flavor. I also added some Maca powder to give me more energy and I always buy it at Malinca.si. For one hungry person or two normal servings you’ll need:

2 bananas    1 small cup of frozen blueberries  ♥  1 tbs maca powder    2 tbs raw cacao powder
♥  1 heaping spoon of peanut butter  ♥  a piece of ginger    1 cup of water

Just blend everything together until smooth. Then top it off with some chia seeds and a couple of frozen blueberries. I’ve been using the Kitchen Aid blender since last June, Alen actually got it for my birthday! I’m so impressed by how it works, it creates amazing smoothies, effortlessly makes ice creams and sorbets. I also made ice powder that is just perfect for cocktails on several occasions and it was amazing! I’ve made some amazing margaritas in the summer and I’m really looking forward to the next one. But I don’t mind, these creamy smoothies will keep me company until then!.

Moja navdušenost s smutiji (smoothieji, zmešančki?!) je ponovno tukaj! Čeprav so smutiji odlični med toplimi meseci, si zadnje čase vseeno zelo rada naredim goste in kremaste, ki me malenkost spominjajo na sladico, haha! Zimski smuti vsebuje vse, kar se mi zdi pomembno za odličen začetek dneva: banane (ki so nujne za dobro teksturo), presni kakav za malo čokoladnega okusa, borovnice za vitamine in barvo, pa tudi arašidovo maslo za polnejši okus. Dodala sem tudi maco v prahu za še več energije, vedno pa jo kupim na spletni strani Malinca.si. Za eno lačno osebo ali dva normalna kozarca potrebujemo:

2 banani    1 manjši lonček zmrznjenih borovnic    1 žlica mace v prahu    2 žlici presnega kakava
♥  
1 zelo veliko žlico arašidovega masla    košček ingverja  ♥  1 kozarec vode

Vse stresemo v blender in mešamo, dokler ni vse dobro zmešano. Smuti okrasimo s chia semen in nekaj zmrznjenimi borovnicami. Od lanskega junija uporabljam mešalnik znamke Kitchen Aid, ki mi ga je Alen kupil za rojstni dan! Res sem presenečena, kako dobro se je izkazal, naredi res odlične smutije, brez težav tudi sladoled ali sorbet. Večkrat sem naredila tudi sneg iz ledu, s katerim sem pripravila res odlične koktajle! Poleti sem naredila res najboljšo margarito na svetu in komaj čakam na novo sezono. Ampak se ne pritožujem, taki kremasti smutiji mi bodo do takrat delali družbo! 

The power of Kolagenlift

Medex sparkling kolagenimg_7455img_7440Although I am a huge supporter of healthy foods for maintaining our health, I’ve come to realise there’s only so much we can do for ourselves with our diet. My 30s are only a few years ahead, so I’m trying to educate myself about anti-ageing as much as I can before it will be too late, haha! What I love about a Slovenian company Medex is not just their wide range of products mainly based on honey, but the fact that they have also created some powerful supplements that can help us maintain our youthful appearance. I’ve heard many amazing things about their collagen and I cannot wait to start using my collagen mixture Kolagenlift with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. It is supposed to reduce wrinkles, improve the skin’s elasticity and have a positive impact on our hair and nails. Of course I will keep you posted and I intend to take it religiously for several months as I really want to see the end result.

Medex has also given me a promo code for my readers! You can use 98JDCKNU for a 15 % discount from their website until the end of 2017. And a cute idea for a healthy NY’s eve beverage: a Sparkling Collagen bubbly! These cute cocktails were served at the Beauty conference and they were a true hit. All you need to do is add one scoop of your favorite Medex collagen powder to your glass and top it with some sparkling water or sparkling wine. And it instantly turns pink, what a treat!

Čeprav trdno verjamem, da je zdrava hrana izjemno pomembna za naše zdravje, sem v zadnjih letih ugotovila, da lahko s prehrano le delno vplivamo na nekatere spremembe. Ker se mi trideseta leta počasi bližajo, se že zdaj poskušam čim bolje izobraziti glede anti-ageinga, še preden bo prepozno, haha! No, pri Medexu mi je zelo všeč njihov velik nabor izdelkov, ki so narejeni na osnovi medu. Še bolj všeč pa mi je to, da so ustvarili kar nekaj učinkovitih prehranskih dopolnil, ki nam lahko pomagajo ohranjati mladosten videz. O njihovem dopolnilu s kolagenom sem slišala že veliko dobrih mnenj, zato komaj čakam, da začnem uporabljati mešanico Kolagenlift z vitaminom C in hialuronsko kislino. Zmanjšala naj bi gubice, izboljšala elastičnost kože in imela dober vpliv na lase in nohte. Seveda vas bom o tem obveščala, Kolagenlift pa nameravam redno jemati nekaj mesecev, ker me zelo zanima končni rezultat.

Pri Medexu pa so mi prijazno dali promocijsko kodo za moje bralke in bralce! Kodo 98JDCKNU lahko uporabite za 15% popust na njihovi spletni strani do konca leta 2017. Imajo pa tudi simpatično idejo za bolj zdrav novoletni koktajl: Sparkling Kolagen! S takimi koktajli smo blogerke uživale na Lepotni konferenci, pripravi se ga pa izjemno enostavno. V kozarec stresete eno merico vašega najljubšega Kolagenlifta in jo prelijete z mineralno vodo ali s penino. In takoj se obarva rožnato, kako luštno!
