May Reviews

Happy Saturday!
With it being the last day of May, OMG can you believe it, I have my review post for you. Featuring some products I was sent and one I bought but just had to share with you. As always the thoughts and words are my own and I said yes to reviewing these items because I think they are things you might be interested in as they are of interest to me : )



Savse smoothies are a range of smoothies cold pressed and filled with raw active ingredients from a range of fruit and veg which are way more appealing to me then other makes of smoothies on the market that contain just fruit. Being someone that makes smoothies and juices at home I more often then not add some veggies to my smoothie which makes it more filling and makes sure I am getting an extra boost of vitamins from my meal. The Savse smoothies I tried were Super Blue which contains blueberries, kale, beetroot, spinach, blackberry and apple, Super Green which contains broccoli, pear, spinach, kale, kiwi, lemon and banana and Super Purple which contains beetroot, apple, avocado, lime, mango and lemon. 

I really liked all of these smoothies I think my favourite was the Super Purple I that was because it contains avocado and I love a smoothie that contains avocado so creamy! The Super Green definitely tastes healthy way to healthy for Dale thats for sure but I enjoyed it. If I was out and about and saw these in the shops I would definitely buy one for a yummy tummy filler they are perfect if you feel a bit peckish and want something healthy but tasty. A must try for you smoothie lovers!

Sweet Freedoms Choc Shot


I have actually reviewed Choc Shot before here on the blog but who doesn't like seeing chocolate more then once? I love this stuff, its a great alternative to a high calorie chocolate sauce at just 14 calories a teaspoon and tastes wonderful. This time round I made a rather indulgent pudding for me and Dale, we wanted something chocolatey and thats what we got. A chocolate and coconut rice pudding that takes about 10 minutes to make and tastes awesome, heres the recipe so you can try it for yourself:

Chocolate and Coconut Rice Pudding

Ingredients:

1/2 cup ground rice
1 + 1/2 cups un-sweetened almond milk
1 Tbsp raw cacao
1 Tbsp Coconom Original coconut sugar
1 Tbsp Rice Syrup
1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
1 generous squeeze of Choc Shot

Method:

Add the rice, milk, cacao, coconut sugar and rice syrup to a small pan over a low heat and stir, you will need to stir continuously until the rice becomes thick. The rice pudding is cooked when it has absorbed all the milk and forms a ball of mixture. Toast the coconut in a dry frying pan until golden brown, mix half into the rice pudding and leave half for sprinkling.

Divide the pudding up and put in a bowl squeeze the Choc Shot over and sprinkle with the leftover toasted coconut.
Enjoy!

This pudding is sweet and luxurious and definite comfort food, it will also feed any sweet craving you might have, so good! If you would like to keep up to date with Choc Shot and get more yummy recipes you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter.


I love a soup but I am a keen homemade soup maker and never really buy any shop bought ones purely because they are usually filled with unnecessary ingredients like sugar or too much salt but when I was asked to try Soupologies soups I was intrigued. These soups are made with no added sugar, artificial ingredients, hydrogenated fats or preservatives and are gluten and lactose free as well as vegetarian! With that info I was excited to try these soups they sent me three of the Super Soups to try Spirulina Greens, Broccoli with Matcha Green Tea and Aduki Bean. All the flavours sounded wonderful and very different to any soups I have ever made or tried! I have tried the Aduki and Broccoli with Matcha Green Tea and both are bloody lovely! These soups taste like they are homemade with love, really really good and definitely a soup I could eat time and time again plus they are low in calories but high in wonderful health boosting ingredients so a win win for me, I can't wait to try the Spirulina one!

If you like soup you gotta try these, you can tell they are made with high quality ingredients and leave you feeling comfortably full, delicious! You can keep up to date with any news and recipes on there Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Rebel Kitchen's Coconut Mylks


Last but not least are these awesome little cartons of flavoured coconut milk from Rebel Kitchen. These were not sent to me to review I bought them whilst out and about in Brighton but I think they are so good and something you would like to hear about! The flavours are banana, chocolate and orange chocolate all of which are fab my favourite was the banana so creamy and good I can't wait to buy more and the adult mylks in flavours chai and matcha green tea sound even better, I will be looking out for those thats for sure! 

Right thats my May reviews done, hopefully you will like the look/sound of some of these or all of them and give them a try I know I will be investing in more! 

Have a lovely weekend guys, I hope the sun is shining for you x x
