Ponzu Zoodles and Avocado Salad

A flavoursome Asian inspired salad, perfect on a hot day. This is an excellent accompaniment to serve with grilled salmon or your choice of protein. It is beneficial to have a good proportion of raw foods in our diets, which is much easier to achieve in the warmer months. Having said that, some people have difficulty digesting raw foods, in which …

Bubblegum Cheesecake

A little something we call “bubblegum” cheesecake. This dessert is naturally coloured with beetroot powder, blue spirulina and matcha powder. Not only does this create the beautiful colours but it also enhances the nutritional value as these ingredients are packed with antioxidants. We have used macadamias and coconut yoghurt for the base of this cake, however cashews can be used …

Tropical Berry Nice Cream

Nice cream is a summer essential. It is the perfect alternative to ice cream with that creamy texture we all love, just without any of the added sugars, flavours and preservatives. The pineapple gives this nice cream a tropical and refreshing twist but if you prefer a more traditional strawberry flavour simply add 1 extra banana and omit pineapple. This recipe is …

Creamy Raspberry Nice Cream

This creamy, three-ingredient raspberry ‘nice cream’ can be whipped up in a matter of minutes and tastes a treat. We love adding superfoods for enhanced flavour and nutrients. You can add whatever you like according to personal preference and availability. Some of our favourites include freeze-dried acai powder, maqui powder and lucuma powder which are all available from health food stores. …

Hawaiian Style Acai Bowl

Upon returning from Hawaii, Sophie (@coconutandbliss) and I made it our mission to recreate out favourite acai bowl of all time from Kalalea Juice Hale in Kauai. We were obsessed with the ‘King Kong’ acai, blended with banana, cacao and almond milk… but it was the toppings that really set it apart. The Kalalea bowl was topped with homemade granola …

Sticky Date and Vanilla Smoothie Bowl

This has become one of my go-to breakfasts when I wake up craving something sweet. It is so thick, creamy and delicious – how all smoothie bowls should be! I also love how quick and easy it is to make. It is great topped with fresh berries, banana, cacao nibs and desiccated coconut – or if you’re feeling like something …

Hazelnut Chocolate Ganache ‘Cheesecake’

Rich, decadent, delicious and healthy. This one I made whilst I have been away on exchange, which really goes to show that it is still possible to make healthy desserts with limited space and resources. I won’t lie, it does make it more difficult – my blender decided to stop working on me so I revert to the old-fashioned way and had …

Chocolate Nut Butter Fudge Smoothie

Simple, delicious and decadent smoothie bowl if ever there was one! Breakfast doesn’t get much better than this. I made this smoothie in my little college room which goes to show just how easy it is to stay healthy with limited space/limited resources. Yes, the ingredients are more expensive than if I had opted for a traditional chocolate shake, but …

Choc-Hazelnut Bliss Balls

These Choc-Hazelnut Bliss Balls are a great afternoon pick me up to satisfy those 4pm sweet cravings, without any of the added nasties. If you are someone who is a little time-poor (who isn’t these days!) it is a good idea to make a batch of bliss balls on the weekend and then you’ll have a little something sweet to …

Vanilla Cashew Chai Tarts

I’m sure all our fellow members of the Sydney health foodie community have heard of the fabulous Orchard St… For anyone who is yet to go, it is an absolute must. Their delicious range of fresh juices, smoothies and ‘milks’ inspired this quick and easy dessert recipe. We have used their ‘Cashew Chai Milk’ in the filling which creates a …

Double Decker Chocolate Cheesecake

This recipe was adapted from our earlier recipe ‘Black and White Chocolate Cheesecake’ but we decided it deserved its own post! We made the cakes as normal, using two small circular spring form tins and allowed them to set individually. We then removed the cakes from the tin and stacked them on top of one another… Too easy! Another difference …

Magnums

We have decided to release a few of our recipes early as we have recently been advised that there is a bit of a delay for our app launch – we have been working very hard to get it out as soon as possible but unfortunately the final development stages are out of our hands. We hope this will make …

Ferrero Rocher Style Chocolate Truffles

For anyone who loves Ferrero Rochers, we have created the perfect healthy alternative just for you. We recommend using activated hazelnuts for the centre as this creates a greater crunch, as well as making it easier for your body to digest. For the dark chocolate coating, we used Loving Earth two ingredient raw dark chocolate, which can be purchased at most health …

Raw Chocolate Drops

These chocolate drops were inspired by the base from several of our raw cheesecakes, made using macadamias, dates, buckinis and coconut. It is such a great combination of flavours so we thought we would use the same recipe to make raw cookies, topped with choc-tahini sauce (recipe in basics). You could also substitute the choc-tahini sauce for raspberry-chia jam or …

Lemon Lime Matcha ‘Cheesecake’

Our healthy ‘cheesecakes’  just got even healthier thanks to the added antioxidant hit of matcha powder – pure stone ground green tea. This week we have been lucky enough to try out this new superfood, thanks to Matcha Maiden and we are absolutely loving it. We’ve been adding it to lots of things from our morning green smoothies to our raw, …

Strawberry Rose ‘Icecream’ Cake

I think this cake should come with a warning… It is highly addictive! It has such a delicious strawberry flavour and creamy texture with a cacao base… Because who doesn’t love strawberries and chocolate! We also love the hint of rose from the rosewater and edible rose petals sprinkled on top. You only need a very small amount of rosewater …

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Smoothie Bowl We thought we would start off our nutrition blog by sharing one of our favourite recipes with you… We have tried to simplify our acai smoothie bowl recipe as much as possible considering the cost of all the extra ingredients, but feel free to get creative and add any of your favourite superfoods! We alternate between serving …
