Cacao & Apple Spiced Porridge

Cacao Spiced Apple Porridge

A real nourishing treat for the winter months!  There are no particular measurements for this recipe please adjust to taste and requirements.  You can also soak your oats in almond milk over night which I find makes them more enjoyable, but you don’t have to.

Cook up the oats with water or dairy free milk of choice, I would use Organic Almond Milk.  Once off the heat add a dash of Organic Vanilla Extract and some live coconut yoghurt to thicken.  Spoon in a couple of tbsp of raw cacao to taste and stir.  Divide into bowls and top with the chopped apples, chopped brazil nuts and raw organic manuka honey or maple syrup for a complete vegan option.  Sprinkle with some mixed spice and additional cinnamon and enjoy!

Please don’t feed the raw honey to under 1’s and the cacao is not suitable for very young children.  Please google the latest research on this!

Such a hearty treat for all the family!  Please note cacao is not recommended for very young children!  Enjoy! 😀

Love and warm wishes in the winter months!

Hazelnut wheatgrass smoothie

Hazelnut and wheatgrass smoothie!  A quick warm winter smoothie before we head out for the day!  Wheatgrass has some amazing benefits and although I have a huge sack of wheatgrass seeds in the kitchen I haven’t successfully grown any yet so I use a powder in my smoothies for now.  The ingredients are below and if your not sure where to get the wheatgrass click on the image below.
I should add that you will need a powerful blender for this one like the vitamix to blend the nuts without destroying the motor, Love and peace ✌️

a handful of hazelnuts (use hazelnut milk if you don’t have a powerful blender)

1 heaped tbsp of wheatgrass

1/2 stick of cinnamon (optional but good for the winter)

2 bananas

water or coconut water to blend

Blend and serve, this makes enough for two! ❤️
