Decadent Raw Chocolate Bars

July 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

Who does not love chocolate?! This recipe kind of just materialized during its making, just simply starting with the coconut oil, agave and the cacao powder, adding ingredients along the way… It is really decadent, and not for the faint-hearted, as the amount of both Coconut Oil and Agave is fairly high, but I have also added a rather good range of nutrient-dense Superpower-Powders to sort of make up for the calorie content and the general richness of the chocolate bars, so you should not feel too guilty indulging in one (or more!) of these:) And; it´s also ingredients for a fairly large batch of chocolate:)!

Raw Chocolate Bars (of the very decadent, full-fat kind)

    • 12 T Coconut Oil
    • 8 T Agave Nectar
    • 8 T Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Cacao Powder
    • 2 T Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Lucuma Powder
    • 2 tsp Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Maca Powder
    • 2 tsp. Organic Raw Peruvian Carob (I used RawLiving by Kate Magic)
    • 2 tsp.Cayenne Powder
    • 2 T Navitas Naturals Organic Raw White Mulberries
    • 2 T Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Goji Berries
    • 3 tsp Vanilla Powder
    • approx.1 tsp.Himalayan Salt
    • 1 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon (or Cassia if you don´t have Ceylon)
    • 50 g.Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Cashew Nuts, roughly chopped
    • 50 g.raw unsalted Almonds, roughly chopped
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and spread evenly onto a baking sheet in a baking pan, and place the pan in the freezer to let the coconut oil do its job of solidifying the mixture into firm chocolate bars. When firm, cut the chocolate dough into pieces of your desired size, and enjoy together with a glass of cold Almond or Hemp Milk!

Superfood Goji-Berry Cacao Concoction

April 16, 2012 § 2 Comments

So, as a part of me joining in on the Cleanse America Event (will make a post about Cleanse America shortly!), my poor low-tech blender has really been put to the test these last few days since the cleanse started on Monday the 10th of April. I have found myself being slightly hooked on, and more or less in craving over smoothies all the time now, and as I do not yet own a juicer, or a Vitamix (ranks no.1 on my wish list!), I have chosen to turn to smoothie-heaven for my daily liquid-love:)!

This particular smoothie has the last couple of weeks become my go-to-smoothie in the mornings, as it is very dense in nutrients, giving my body some powerful fuel to get-up-and-going, as well as it fills me good and well up (buttercup!), making my energy levels last long up until mid-day when it´s time for lunch (and possible yet another smoothie, I should add;).

The recipe could be made without some of the ingredients, without loosing the majority of its taste and lushness (banana, strawberry, goji-berries and cacao excepted), but I find that I like to know that I am putting many vital nutrients into my body, doing it good, at same time as my taste buds gets that sweet taste of, oh; something sweet. Desserts always taste even better when they´re a bit healthy too, or what?;)

Anyways;

Here is the recipe;

For the Smoothie

  • 100 grams banana, frozen
  • 100 grams strawberries, frozen
  • 40 grams Goji Berries
  • 2 tsp Lucuma
  • 2 tsp Cacao Powder
  • 1 tsp Bee Pollen
  • 1 tsp home-made High-Protein Concoction*(freely adapted from Paul Risse´s Rockin´Wellness Powder, that you could get here http://www.rockinwellness.com/products/the-original-recipe )
  • 1/3 tsp Chlorella Powder
  • 2 dl Almond Milk
  • 1-1.5 dl Hemp Milk
  • 2 dates (or 1 Medjool Date)

 

For the High-Protein Concoction*

  • Equal amounts* of (I took large scoop of each);
  • Raw Cacao Powder* (double amount)
  • Raw Lucuma Powder
  • Organic Matcha Powder
  • Golden Flax Seeds
  • Brown Rice Protein Powder
  • Chia Seeds
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Probiotics

 

For the Garnish

  • Goji Berries
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Coconut
  • Bee Pollen
  • White Mulberries

 

Directions

Throw all ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth and creamy. Serve with garnish of choice, and don´t forget to enjoy:)!

C-Vit Power Bullets

November 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

(Pictures coming shortly!)
Being an early bird as I am, taking a nice, long walk before dawn has become one of my favorite morning rituals before breakfast. I rarely set-off walking without having eaten something, as I am usually rather hungry after sleeping for the last 7-8 hours. I´ve often struggled to decide exactly what to eat at this hour though, as I do not want to spoil my appetite for a hearty breakfast-to-come, and I don´t really like the feeling of being too full either, as the pace I am walking in is rather brisk.
I really want this before-walking-foodstuff to be easy to put away, and to be something I can grab on my way out the door, at the same time as I want it to provide my body with good-sourced energy. Temperatures here in Scandinavia are getting lower and lower at this time of year, and for the last couple of the days the temperature at the time I am out walking is around 4 degrees Celsius, so it wouldn´t hurt if what I eat at this time of day contains a good portion of C-Vitamins to boost my immune system. So today I made these C-Vitamin Power Bullets, loaded with C´s from pressed Rosehip Powder and Goji Berries, and beneficial fats from coconut oil. I think, at least for me, that one or two of these will give me a good start of the day.
As for the recipe:
  • 2 deciliter pitted dates
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 large tablespoons of Rosehip Powder
  • 1 deciliter Goji Berries
  • a pinch of Sea Salt
Put all the ingredients except for the Goji Berries in a good blender, and blend until you have a fairly smooth date-paste. Then remove this paste from the container, toss the Goji Berries in instead, and grind them finely. Mix the Goji Berry `flour´ in with the date-paste, and make small bullets using both your hands.

RAW Choco Deluxe Smoothie

September 29, 2011 § 1 Comment

I woke up this morning feeling like I needed some extra sweetness to my usual, oatmeal breakfast, and made this RAW Choco Deluxe Smoothie. It is such a good, and, hold on: surprisingly healthy way to start the day, especially at days when you feel like you need the additional “sugar” to get yourself going, without turning to the more conventional sources that destabilizes your blood sugar levels and send them racing.

The recipe goes a little something like this:

  • 1 deep-frozen banana (peeled and cut into smaller pieces before freezing)
  • 1.5-1.75 deciliter Almond Milk (or any other nut milk)
  • 3 teaspoons of RAW Cocoa Powder
  • 0.5 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoon Lucuma Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Chia Seeds (soak for approximately 20-30 mins) or 1 large teaspoon Lecithin Powder

Blend all the ingredients well together in a blender, and serve in a tall glass. Add more fluids if you find it too thick. I personally like a little bit of thickness to it, without it going all pudding-like. If you feel like adding the additional flare to it, you could sprinkle it with Gojis, Bee Pollen and RAW Cocoa nibs, as I have done here. You might not get all the sprinkle through your straw, but that will just give you a wonderful surprise in the end, and can easily be solved with the help of a spoon!

RAW muesli

September 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

Inspired by my RAW Food cooking class yesterday, I have just made a jar of homemade muesli. It is ridiculously easy, and really tasty!

The recipe goes like this:

  • 1 deciliter rolled oats
  • 1 deciliter rolled buckwheat
  • 1.5 deciliter raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 deciliter dried mulberries
  • 0.5 deciliter gojiberries
  • 1 deciliter sunflower seeds
  • 0.5 deciliter hemp seeds
  • 0.5 deciliter dried coconut
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons lucuma
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground carnation

Just blend it all well together in a bowl using your hands, so that the spices stick to the dried fruits and the oats, and serve with fresh berries, yoghurt or cold nut milk (my favorite is almond milk)! Feel free to experiment and alternate the recipe by adding other dried fruits (such as figs or dates), nuts or other Superfoods. I basically just added the things I had filling up my (very limited) cupboard space, and as I am rather weak for Mulberries, mulberries make up a decent part of this muesli…!
