It was actually nice to have the ability to share my well being journey with a bunch of such interactive and enthusiastic folks.
I spoke about my company profession put up college, working eight years at Goldmans Sachs as an funding banker after which monetary analysis analyst.

How to make an Apple Pie Smoothie
What I discovered most pleasurable nonetheless, was our group Q&A session afterwards, and the subsequent one on one discussions I had with most of the superior attendees. I discover it so rewarding to have the ability to assist others who’re going by means of related well being crises, or who’ve members of the family present process well being difficulties. Thanks to everybody who got here alongside, and notably to all of the individuals who I spoke to afterwards – it was nice to fulfill you all.
As you will have guessed it, an integral a part of The Smoothie Club is sharing a smoothie recipe on the finish of the presentation. I knew the membership had beforehand hosted visitor audio system who had made inexperienced smoothies, berry concoctions, and creamy cacao treats as their smoothie of selection. So I actually needed to create one thing distinctive. Kim Renshaw (the founding father of The Smoothie Club) and I had additionally chatted about attempting to make the smoothie as seasonal and native as attainable.
All of I sudden I went by means of a few of my favorite smoothie mixtures, each home made and retailer-purchased, and realised that almost all of them have been relatively unlocal! Cacao powder, maca powder, spirulina, frozen blueberries, goji berries, acai berries, maqui berry, camu camu, gubinge powder, coconut, coconut milk, dates, vanilla, cinnamon, almonds, cashews, brazil nuts… You get the image. None of those are grown in New Zealand, and solely a pair are grown over the ditch in Australia. So I needed to get my recipe pondering cap on.
After just a few totally different mixtures, I lastly landed on this one – and let me let you know associates, it’s a winner. It’s fully totally different from different smoothies you will have tried, but is tremendous easy to make, and importantly, scrumptious. It’s primarily based on native seasonal natural apples, grown proper right here in New Zealand. I used Pacific Rose apples in my model, that are a scrumptious candy selection grown in NZ. Granny Smiths although additionally work nicely, and if I used to be making it in Australia I’d make a beeline for these scrumptious natural Pink Lady’s you’ll be able to decide up on the markets.
The crisp candy apples are mixed with a touch of frozen banana and cashews for creaminess, then topped off with a vanilla, cinnamon, date combo to take you again to granny’s Apple Pie of outdated. Plus a touch of maca powder for added hormonal steadiness for those who like. It’s undoubtedly a refreshing and exceedingly wholesome model of Apple Pie in a glass.
