Carrot + Tomato Probiotic Pesto

PICKLESAlana Holloway

This probiotic pesto is a great way to use this Summer's Carrot + Tomato Relish.  All the flavour comes from the Relish, so you need to add little else.  It's delicious spread on some toasted sourdough and topped with sautéed courgettes, or as a pizza sauce instead of the classic tomato.


100g Carrot + Tomato Relish
60g pine nuts
1 roasted and peeled red pepper
Olive Oil


- Add all the ingredients except the olive oil to a food processor.  

- Blend whilst drizzling the olive oil through the spout until it reaches a pesto consistency.

- Spoon into a clean jar and store in the fridge for up to a week.

Cucumber, Lime + Avocado Kefir Smoothie

KEFIRAlana Holloway

I once went on a juice cleanse (back when they were all the rage) and remember how excited I got when it was time for the avocado smoothie!  After days of delicious, but unsubstantial, vegetable juices, the creamy and thick avocado smoothie got my mouth watering and was just what the doctor ordered.  This kefir smoothie was created in homage to that and hits all the right spots; creamy, sweet, refreshing, sharp and most of all, satisfying!!

To make,  blend until smooth;
225ml Cucumber + Lime Kefir
1 whole cucumber
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 an avocado
A couple of mint leaves
1 small handful of spinach
