So I’ve been away visiting family in Teesside and beavering away writing e-courses so I haven’t had time to make any treats for a while. So, I thought I’d share a few of my favourites from the archive so you have some healthiness to try over the weekend . Don’t forget to share if you like it!
1. Healthy Snickers!
Nougat: 1 cup raw flour. (I used ground almonds but next time I’ll add a little oat flour too). 1/2 cup soaked cashews, 1 tbsp agave, 1 tsp vanilla essence.
Caramel: 10 medjool dates, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1/4 tsp salt. A little warm water. Stir in 1 tbsp chopped nuts after blending.
Chocolate: make your own raw chocolate or melted pure dark chocolate will be fine.
Blend nougat ingredients, mould into shapes then freeze for 30 mins
Blend caramel adding water a little at a time. It should be really thick so it doesn’t slide off when you spread it on the nougat.
Spread on nougat then freeze for another 20 mins or until pretty hard.
Cover in melted chocolate and refrigerate for 10 mins. Keep in the freezer. They’ll only take 20 mins to defrost when you want one wink emoticon
2. The Fatty. An awesome creamy green smoothie:
1 handful kale
1 handful spinach
1 tbsp ground flax
Top with 2 tbsp coconut cream
3. Peanut Butter Crunch Ice Cream:
Peanut butter chocolate crunch ice cream over maple overnight oats.
I made this for my hubby to refuel after his morning bike race.
Oats soaked in almond milk and maple syrup overnight
Nana-icecream – 2 ripe frozen bananas blended with 2 tbsp crunchy organic peanut butter and a little almond milk.
Scoop over the oats and put back in the freezer for 10 minutes while you’re melting the chocolate. I used pure dark organic. (I could have made it with coconut oil and raw cacao but I ran out)
Drizzle over your cold ice cream and top with peanuts.
The chocolate will cool and crisp up nicely.
