What Is Jungle Juice???

Right, so now that I am a mommy, I’m going through more things than just finding out the latest beauty products, tricks and tips. Motherhood goes beyond that. It’s now whats best for your child, and of course yourself. How on earth can a mother look after her child if she doesn’t look after herself first.

So if you’re a mommy, you know or have heard of jungle juice, haven’t you?  It’s a ‘magic’ potion you drink to improve your milk production. Although on La Leche League (LLL) groups, they’ll tell you it holds no evidence that it does, HOWEVER, too many mommies say it has worked for them. So I’m testing it… And in my honest opinion it is working. But I have to also say that I’m topping up with formula. This is a personal choice, as my milk took a while to come in. I feel it’s due to the fact I had a c-section. I have however noticed my milk is coming in more with this juice while expressing. So my boy is having less formula.. so yay!

Now it could be just be the fact I’m drinking a whole lot of liquids which lets face it, is what really helps with milk production. But with all the ingredients one mixes, it could only be helping really.


2 litres water, room temperature or cold.
1 litre apple juice
1 sachet rehidrat (available at a pharmacy)
± 10 drops per litre of juice of Rescue drops (available at a pharmacy)
60ml blackthorn berry elixir (available at a pharmacy)


  1. Mix it all together in a large bottle ± 5 litre bottle and drink it all up within two days.

Oral electrolyte mixture for the treatment of dehydration.

A homeopathic-flower essence combination complementary medicine of the use of shock, anxiety, fear, grief and recurrent insomnia due to stress.

This elixir is ideal for restoring the body’s natural balance after periods of exhaustion, pressure or illness.
Reducing fatigue and increasing vitality.
Pregnant and breastfeeding woman and after confinement. Ideal for the whole family.

So if you’re breastfeeding, I suggest trying Jungle Juice out. So far, so good. However!!! Big however. It can cause thrush and weight gain according to some moms, because of the sugar content. Just drinking water is the BEST.

Kitchen Fun. . .Banana and Oats cookies

Good afternoon Poutlings,

I trust you are all doing well, had a great weekend and loving the rain 🙂

So I have a few Beauty product posts I’d like to share with you all but thought i’d slip in another kitchen one seeing as the last one was beauty related.

I got to make my very healthy and Fit Viking Banana and Oats cookies last week,

He loved them so much that it is now a daily thing and he has them as snacks between meals,

So if you would like to try them, Keep reading 🙂




2 x Large Banana’s

1 cup of Oats

1 1/2 cup of Whey Protein  (optional, I added Cinnamon pancake for flavor and that extra bit of protein which is perfect to take to gym or snack on before, during or after)

You can also add Almonds, peanuts, raisins and all kinds of things you enjoy, I stuck to the simple one due to a strict diet 🙂


1. Preheat oven to 175°C

2. Mash the Bananas in a large bowl, add the oats and whichever mix-ins you’d like, I added the Whey Protein.

3. Using your hands or an ice cream spoon, Make little round balls and place them on either a greased pan or a pan covered with parchment paper, You can either flatten them or keep them round, I did however flatten them by pressing them down with a spoon as it’s easier to eat then.

4. Bake for 12 to 15 Minutes

5. Enjoy

This is such an incredibly quick, easy, healthy and delicious snack, Please let me know if you’ve tried them, what you’ve added and how you liked them 🙂

Hey hey there.

…So my sister phones me and tells me about this recipe and how amazing it was. It was a pinterest pic I found a long while back, which I had posted on our Facebook page. She tried it out and let me know how great it turned out and that I just had to make them too.

It’s a recipe that consists of two ingredients. Bananas and eggs. These two ingredients make flapjacks. Yes! It’s true! However, adding a tablespoon or two of flour (wheat based/gluten free) will make it a lot better to bind and obviously turn over on the pan. Give it a little substance.

Here are pictures of how mine turned out.


You’ll need:
1) a blender
2) two bananas
3) one egg
4) two tablespoons of flour (one spoon for every banana you use)






My sister asked our dietitian (Amanda Kuit) what she had to say about this recipe. Apparently it equals to one fruit portion and 30gr protein portion. The small amount of flour used doesn’t even count as a starch. And that one person can eat all flapjacks made from this batter! How fabulous is that?

So I made these and served it to hubby! He really enjoyed them! They’re filling, naturally sweet and healthy! I’ll definitely be making these again!

So please pop a comment below of you’re planning on making them and how they turn out. Would love to hear from you. 🙂

MuchLuv, BeBlessed

Hey Pouters

Due to my thyroid diet, I have to have gluten free food. It’s quite hard finding restaurants that cater for us ‘non-gluteners’, but I cannot complain at all. Dischem has a huge variety of gluten free products. Ranging from biscuits, breads, rusks, cake mix, bread mix, flap jack mix, and the list goes on.

Even if you are not on a special diet, I suggest you try gluten free food. It will make you feel better and healthier. You don’t bloat and you’ll find that you’ll lose weight. The best of all is, it’s so so yummy and delicious.




These are my favorite biscuits. And this ciabatta bread is seriously good. Try it out.

MuchLuv, BeBlessed

Good Morning Gorgeous!

It’s humpday and I think it’s a good idea to get some motivation to keep you going through the rest of the week. So here it goes.

This is very much true.


There you have it! My dietitian would concur with most of Bob’s rules here.
