5 mintute smoothie!

I made this this morning for my younger brother and I, and it was fantastic!!!!
I have a Herbalife chocolate shake every morning, and to break the routine today, I spiced it up a bit :)
The best things about this are its healthy, very quick and easy, and it tastes just like a Kuai smoothie!
Usually its just 2 scoops of powder and ml of milk, but I made this for two people, instead of one. So if you're not going to spread the love, halve the recipe.

  • 1 tray of ice
  • 3Tbsp peanut butter (I used chocolate chip peanut butter, but any PB will do)
  • 3Tbsp of chocolate shake powder (it can be another brand, it doesn't have to be Herbalife, or you could use hot chocolate, milo, or nesquick powder, it would be less healthy, but it would taste great!)
  • 500ml milk
  • 1 banana (i hate banana, so I didn't add this, but for those of you who do, it will taste fantastic!)

First put the tray of ice into your blender and crush it. Then all you have to do is throw in everything else, and crank it up! So easy! Decant into glasses, serve, and enjoy!

So simple, but so delicious! makes a great breakfast, or a healthy snack alternative!
I don't know about you, but I love Kuai smoothies! My favourite is their Peanut butter bomb, which tastes just like this! I will definitely do this again :)

Modelling at luigis :)

OK, here goes.
Awhile ago Tori asked me to model for them again, this time at Luigi's in Hout Bay. Luigis is a little Italian restaurant owned by Antonio, the husband to the woman (Diane) who designed the range of clothing we modelled.The range is called Savage Appaloosa, and Diane is Tory's mom's cousin. Chew on that for a while ;)

Wow, ok, last Saturday I had my first WP Karate competition! I only fought, since I don't know enough senior Katas. It was extremely exciting, and I was hardly nervous!!! I really enjoyed it, and it was really only for the experience that I went. My amazing friend, Ashton, coached me in and out of class for 2 weeks before the competition, I am so grateful for such a fantastic friend!
It was an early start to be at CPUT by 8 for 8:30

After waiting outside for a long time, we finally filed in dojo by dojo. Ashton, Laurens (a boy who trains with us) and I stuck together until Laurens and I had to go on. Ashton is too old to compete since it was a children's comp, so she was there to support us.
Eventually my division was called, and as I walked across the floor my stomach turned! I was all of a sudden nervous, but I squelched my fear and kept going. Luckily there were the kata competitors first, so my nerves had a chance to calm themselves. I got chatting to some of the girls, and found that my brother knows one of their sisters :)
I found out that two of the girls in my weight division had been to SAs and one to WC! And this was my first WP only!
The girl I was up against beat me 7-3, but I was fine with that. I was hoping for another fight, and not so happy that they had not scored us fairly, but I was out. I still got a bronze medal, since there were only four of us, but it was worth it, and so much fun!

I am so happy!

Sorry, but not really

Hey everyone, I know I haven't posted in ages, but you know what? I can't spend my life glued to a computer screen, even if other people can. I need to be out in the real world experiencing real things. So if I'm off for a while, you'll know that when I next post, I will have a lot to say about those experiences, either that or I don't have anything to post about :)
so here's to the real world!!!
