Frill - The Frozen Smoothie

Here at the Amazing Blog we feel that no one should miss out on a good dessert, therefore we were particularly excited about the creation of The Frozen Smoothie by Frill. It is an irresistible frozen treat free from dairy and gluten, making it vegan friendly and safe for anyone with gluten or lactose intolerances. Frill Frozen Smoothies contain half the sugar and 10 times the fibre of regular ice cream as well as being low in sodium and fat, finally we can enjoy a truly guilt free dessert!

Frill can be enjoyed when frozen but if left in room temperature for a couple of hours it becomes a rich, creamy mousse. The various flavours include Intense Chocolate, Refreshing Green, and Bursting Berries; we were lucky enough to try these particular flavours and were not disappointed. They are all delicious, the chocolate frill was rich and smooth, while the bursting berries was sweet and refreshing. We loved the personal touches on the pot’s logo; on each flavour the polar bear image wears a different expression. If you ever find yourself in a rush, add nut milk to Intense Chocolate, or fruit juice to Bursting Berries and Refreshing Green, a nutritious breakfast smoothie that can be whipped up in no time.

This is a fun, delicious and healthy dessert that is perfect for everyone, no matter their age or if they have specific diets/eating requirements. Diet goers everywhere raise a spoon to the new Holy Grail sweet treat. Wave goodbye to frozen yoghurt and say hello to Frill, get your hands on it here for £5.75.

Tideford Organic Soup

Blog image READY for 23 october.jpg

Here at The Amazing Blog we just love when we come across a food brand that both pleases our taste buds and helps us live a healthy lifestyle. That being said, we were extremely grateful when Tideford Organics sent us a wide selection of their organic soups which we found just delightful.

The company sent us Pea and Mint, Beetroot with Crème Fraiche and Dill, and Italian Tomato with Lentil and Red Pepper. Considering that the collection of soups are all organic, low fat, low salt, gluten free and wheat free, we allowed ourselves to indulge…and it was just positively sinful. Out of the three soups that we were able to try, our favourite was the Organic Italian Tomato with Lentil and Red Pepper. We loved its classic but reinvented profile, and it's the perfect replacement for the original tomato soup and grilled cheese combination. Overall, the soups are good for you, the company is passionate about what they do, and the food is delicious. Sign us up!

Though we fell in love with the soup, Tideford Organics is equally as passionate about providing a wide array of delicious and healthy foods of all kinds. The selection of food provided includes lines of porridge, pudding, pesto, and sauces.

Move PopUp Gym

If you are anything like us here at The Amazing Blog, the prospect of dragging ourselves to the gym is not at all appealing! So when we heard all about Move Popup Gym, we left all our exercise reservations at the door and found ourselves reaching for the gym kit in the deep, dark corners of our wardrobes.

You’ve heard of popup stores and restaurants, but Move Popup Gym is set to be the next big thing in the fitness world. Instead of staring at a wall on the treadmill you can now find yourself doing the downward facing dog on top of a rooftop overlooking the London skyline…yeah you heard me right! Past and present locations include a rooftop overlooking St. Paul’s Cathedral, a raised garden at Cardinal Place and Battersea Power Station.

Unlike most traditional gyms, there are no hefty fees to pay, or even a contract to sign. You can turn up to classes as and when you feel motivated – great for our bank balance. Classes include Zumba, Body Conditioning, Balletsculpt, Pilates, Stiletto Work Outs (I know, we think this sounds great too!), Tabata, Yoga and ‘Look Good Naked’. So there is really a class to meet all needs whether you are a beginner or a fitness fanatic.

Prices for classes start at just £10 and you can find out more about where their next class will be popping up by following them on Twitter and liking their Facebook page or visit the Move Popup Gym website for more information.
