80g frozen berries
200ml milk or nut mylk of choice (vegan snack option)
1 tbsp gluten-free oats (gluten-free snack option)
1 tbsp flaxseed
Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Serve.

Pixie is a UK-based nutritionist (MSc), published scientist (BSc), food blogger, and avid Instagrammer. She graduated with a First Class degree in Biochemistry in 2014, and went on to complete a Masters in Nutrition with Distinction in 2016. Her first paper on orthorexia was published in March.
She is the brains behind the ‘Plantbased Pixie’ blog and social media accounts. She is dedicated to promoting a no-BS healthy lifestyle supported by evidence-based science. Thanks to her outspoken and (at times) controversial views in the wellness industry she describes herself as a “wellness rebel”. As well as speaking at food events in London, she has also been featured in various publications as both a nutritional expert and recipe developer. We love turning to her for healthy snack inspo!
