almond, pineapple and papaya smoothies!

in yesterday’s post we told you about press meetings being had over some homemade smoothies.
well the recipe for these ridiculously tasty smoothies comes courtesy of the gorgeous maddie
in johannesburg, passed on to her from her lovely mum! we loved them so much we just had to
share this much loved family recipe that is not only full of protein but absolutely delicious!

The recipe is as follows:

150 ml apple juice
1 cup diced fruit (pineapple in this case) You can also use berries, papaya,
peaches – whatever suits your mood.
1/4 cup (approx. 20 ) raw almonds.
1 heaped tablespoon of pea protein powder, can substitute with
any protein powder.

Blend until smooth.

s/s 12 launch with kirsten and missibaba

as many of you will know from facebook and twitter, last week saw the kg london team host our
spring / summer launch at our holland street store. the evening was a huge success, with both
friends of missibaba’s, chloe, and kirsten coming along to celebrate the collaboration. we ate
cupcakes in the signature kg yellow and sipped on champagne and welcomed bloggers ‘le
belle collier
‘ and Lynn Hall who loved the signature statement kg rings. our new ‘geo’ collection and
‘phoenix’ hoops proved hugely popular, and will be a must have for this season!

new official twitter @KirstenGossLon for tweets from kirsten and the teams around the globe!
