Best of the Rest

Enjoy these delicious drinks for an energising boost

Plant milk power

The combination of nutrient-dense nuts, seeds, and fruit paired with kelp powder, make these drinks a great way to increase the number of vitamins and minerals in your diet in one convenient serving. They are also a great way to refuel, so if you are on-the-go, make one ahead of time and enjoy it when you need a pick-me-up.

Strawberry, Chia and Cashew Nut Smoothie

Makes: 400ml

The fusion of strawberry, chia and cashew makes this the perfect summer smoothie! Depending on the sweetness of the strawberries, you may want to reduce the quantity of dates used.

• 6 cashews (about 9g), soaked in 60ml water overnight

• 10g chia seeds, soaked in 60ml water overnight

• 200g fresh strawberries

• 2 dates, pitted

• ¼ tsp vanilla powder, paste or seeds from a pod

• Pinch kelp powder (optional)

• 100ml water

1 Remove the cashews from the water used to soak them in. Add the cashews, chia seeds, including the water they were soaked in, strawberries, dates, vanilla, kelp (if using) and 100ml of fresh water to a high-powered blender and blend until a smoothie is formed. Add more water if required to get the correct consistency.

About PlantBased

July is undoubtedly the best month of the year; summer is in full swing, the days are longer, and, if you’re lucky, you may be able to enjoy a few drinks in the sunshine after work. It’s also the time of year where our diaries are jam-packed with BBQs – but, as vegans, this can sometimes be met with a side of anxiety if our social groups are predominantly meat eaters. On page 28, you will find everything you need to know if you’re planning to host your own BBQ – or should we say, BVQ – from handy tips, to mouth-watering recipes. But, if grilled food isn’t really your thing, you may want to experiment with raw food recipes. Following a diet that mainly consists of uncooked foods may seem slightly tricky to begin with, but we’ve served up a number of dishes that are impossible to resist – find them on page 46. They’re all easy-to-make and super healthy – perfect for those trying to eat well before their summer holiday. Speaking of which, have you booked yours yet? Whether you plan on staying close to home, or you fancy jetting off to a far away island, make sure you follow our Summer Survival Guide, on page 18. Here, we share all you need to know to ensure you have a care-free, vegan holiday. Before I go, I just want to recommend the Samphire and Spinach Linguine on page 94. It’s a pretty simple dish, but it will go down a treat with dinner party guests – especially if it’s served outside with an ice cold drink. Enjoy the issue!
