THISMONTH THISMONTH… We’re getting our five a day with… PROTEIN SMOOTHIE KITS Having already created a new and improved way to get your smoothie fix in under a minute with their original, Great Taste Award-winning range of superfood-enriched frozen smoothie kits, PACK’D have now launched nationwide with a trio of Protein Smoothie Kits. Each pack contains two smoothie kits that combine a sophisticated mix of freshly frozen fruit and vegetables – so no need to spend hours peeling and chopping – with a targeted blend of organic whey protein (13g per portion) and superfoods, and has been designed with elite sports nutritionists to make the ultimate protein smoothie. All that’s left to do is add milk, almond milk or water and blend; healthy’s never been so easy. £3.50 (set of 2 portioned packs), www.packd.co.uk We’re eating… CHILLISH ULTIMATE CHILLI OIL Our latest obsession, Chillish is a punchy new condiment, marinade, drizzler, dip and oil all rolled into one. As the name suggests, the primary ingredient besides award-winning extra virgin rapeseed oil and shallots is chilli flakes, so it’s ideal for those that like their food with a kick. Cleverly though, the ingredients naturally separate into a subtly flavoured oil that sits at the top of the jar and captures the more delicate notes of exotic chilli, nutty rapeseed oil and fragrant spices, while the ‘gubbins’ that collects at the bottom of the jar is a richer, spicier blend of caramelised onion, chilli and garlic. Really versatile and absolutely delicious, it’s suitable for vegans and vegetarians, and contains absolutely no nasties. From £5.95, www.pollyannaskitchen.co.uk We’re drinking… ELEPHANT GIN Inspired by the traditional sundowner experience after a day out in the African bush, Elephant Gin is a premium handcrafted gin made with carefully selected ingredients that capture the spirit of Africa. Produced using the traditional method of copper still distillation, the blend of 14 botanicals used to make this smooth spirit include the savannah’s superfruit, baobab; the ‘miracle herb’ buchu with a flavour similar to blackcurrant; and the African wormwood, which introduces a sharp floral note. Giving back to what inspired the gin in the first place, the company contributes 15 per cent of all proceeds to two African elephant foundations – Big Life Foundation and Space for Elephants. Alcoholic and ethical? Magnificent. www.elephant-gin.com We’re saving for… We’re cleansing with… BRASS THE ARGAN OIL BEAUTY BAR Not as in great slabs of metal, but definitely as in part of our interior design scheme.
