Luke Hines’ Popeye’s Pre-Workout


100g frozen banana slices

1 green apple, cored and diced

2 cubes frozen spinach 

250ml coconut water

30g scoop vanilla protein powder or unflavoured collagen powder 

1/2 cup ice cubes

1 kiwi fruit, diced into chunks, half for smoothie and half for garnish on top


Step 1. 

Place the ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender, and blitz until well combined in your desired consistency. For a chunkier smoothie, don’t blitz for too long. Blend on high for longer if you’d like a smoother consistency. 

Step 2.

Pour into a tall wide glass and garnish with some reserved diced kiwi fruit. 

Zoe Bingley-Pullin’s Turmeric, Oat, Fruit and Raw Honey Clusters


1/4 cup oat flour

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup hemp seeds

1/2 cup raw honey

1 tsp turmeric powder

1/2 cup of organic mixed dried fruit, roughly chopped 

For serving

Dollop of yoghurt

Fresh fruit


Step 1. 

Preheat the oven to 150°C. 

Step 2.

In a large bowl, gently combine all of the ingredients together without overmixing.

Step 3.

Roughly roll the mixture into 20cm clusters and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Step 4.

Let them bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown. Then, remove from the heat and allow them to adhere together into clumps and cool.

Step 5.

Serve with yoghurt and/or fresh fruit. Store any leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate.
