10 Minutes Well Spent . . .
Black gooseberry fool - vegan, gluten free, healthy and delicious! Directions: I used exotic black gooseberries (!), but you could use any kind. Simmer these down in a tiny amount of water - I added just a little granulated coconut nectar to sweeten.
Then layer with thick Greek style coconut yoghurt. (I used Cocoyo as it is intensely thick and creamy and not sour like some yoghurts - the gooseberries are sour-ish - so you need to balance the flavours).
I had some leftover ground walnut/date cheesecake base, so I popped some of this in the bottom of the glass to add a bit of extra texture and sprinkled a little on top but this is not mandatory 😉
Layer, decorate and eat!

Jayney's Delicious Anti-Ageing Smoothie of the Day
My Super Anti-ageing Smoothie recipe of the day to rewind your body-clock.
Let's lengthen those telomeres!
Fresh or frozen berries - your choice . . I just found red gooseberries in the farmers market and they are so sweet and delicious (maybe too exotic for a smoothie - we shall see). Berries should be organic as they tend to be highly contaminated with pesticides etc. See my article on "The Clean Fifteen and the Dirty Dozen" for more info about this.
Spinach - pro tip - I always keep a stash of frozen organic spinach in the freezer - just in case of emergencies - who among us has not had a spinach emergency?
Bananas - organic is ideal
Flaxseed - remember to keep your nuts and seeds in the fridge - they contain delicate oils that can go rancid, even at room temperature - and this rancid oil is highly toxic - so beware! Note - if you are using a high speed blender flax seed is fine to use - however, if you are just using an ordinary kitchen blender, ground flax seed is a bit easier.
Coconut water - you can buy this pretty easily now - but if you don't have it then just use water or a nut mylk - your choice.
Ice cubes - if you like them and you want your smoothie to be chilly. Ice cubes will tend to thicken your smoothie - which can be helpful.
Whizz up and enjoy!
