On her food philosophy – 'Just eat real food, I think food is here to nourish us but also to share with the people you love"
On her favourite recipe – 'I'm all about smoothies". It's smoothies every breaky time for me; I'm making this acai one at the moment which I love"
On her favourite ingredient – 'The one ingredient I can't live without is extra Virgin olive oil – I use it in my hair, I use it on my face, I have one in the kitchen, I put it in my smoothies"
On wholefoods: 'When it comes to doing wholefoods right I think bring it back to basics, the simpler the better. You want to know what you're eating."
On what it means to have a healthy diet: 'If you're not happy, it's really hard to be healthy"
Lola shows us how to recreate her favourite recipes at home, as demonstrated on the new Electrolux Masterpiece Bronze Collection™ in the Electrolux Taste Theatre at Taste of Melbourne.
1 frozen banana
150 g ( 1 cup) frozen blueberries
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup, coconut nectar or dates)
625 ml (2 ½ cups) almond milk
Pop your ingredients into the Electrolux Masterpiece Collection Jug Blender and whizz until you have the consistency you like. 'I love mine thick and smooth, but you can always add a little extra liquid if these are too thick."
Electrolux tip: Start off with the ice crushing setting of the Masterpiece Collection Jug Blender to blend through the frozen fruit and finish off with the smoothie setting to get a smooth consistency.
