Mango Coconut Smoothie

A Smoothie-a-day for November

I’ve set myself a challenge: Each day in November I plan to make a healthy smoothie, post a photo and a share the recipe on my social media. Here in South Africa, we are still in Spring, with 1 December marking the start of our summer.

Smoothies are such a healthy, easy and delicious way to start the day. A few years ago, when I was struggling with leaky gut, the only thing I could really manage to get down was smoothies. My gut was that damaged that I struggled to eat anything that required too much digestion and by eating less but still trying to cram nutrition and sustenance into a smoothie made it so much easier. Back then I would put protein powder and collagen and all sorts of other things like chia seeds etc into them. So I have a ton of smoothie recipes written down and I’m excited to share them with you.

Hello. My name is Bonnie. Welcome to my page. I have been an avid baker for about 20 years. Of those years, seven have been gluten-free baking. I discovered I had a chronic intolerance to gluten and began experimenting with converting my all time favorite recipes into gluten-free ones. I also have developed my own recipe repertoire. I am married and have two children. My husband and son are not gluten intolerant but my daughter is. She has also been the motivation for persevering in creating recipes we both can enjoy. My journey has taught me so much and I know many others can benefit from my experience. My hope is that you will find something you can order that you have missed and longed for being gluten intolerant or celiac. Or perhaps you just want a healthier option as I also offer alternatives to some of my orders such as sugar free, grain free and low carb. I share my experience and story in more detail on my Instagram page. (@bonniesGFbakery) Please feel free to follow me there. Located in Somerset West, Western cape, South Africa. I deliver to the Helderberg basin area which includes Somerset West, Gordans Bay and Strand.
