Creamy Avocado Pudding

With Avocado season just around the corner, I thought I would share my favourite way to enjoy this versatile fruit, in a dessert. This fruit is usually enjoyed alongside eggs or in savoury meals but it tastes even better when made into a sweet meal. Subbing avocado into desserts packs in extra health benefits and gives it a creamy texture. Avocados are high in good quality fat, fibre, they contain over 20 vitamins and minerals and have more potassium than bananas. Chocolate avocado pudding is a healthy, creamy, decadent dessert made with avocados, maple syrup and raw cacao powder. This recipe took me 3 minutes to make and uses only 3 ingredients. I topped mine with blueberries, pomegranate, coconut chips and pistachio nuts. Other toppings that can be used include fresh fruit, coconut cream, cinnamon, cacao nibs and nuts and seeds. This recipe can be eaten as a dessert, snack…

Spicy Turmeric Latte

Since cutting down on my coffee consumption I made sure there was a delicious hot drink I could replace it with. Turmeric latte’s have become my new favourite drink in the morning or at night, I love how soothing it is for the body, and how good it makes me feel. This recipe has a spicy kick to it, that is grounding and nourishing. Ginger, turmeric and cinnamon have incredible anti-inflammatory properties, which means this soothing and delicious latte is also really good for you. Turmeric is high in anti-oxidants and rich in zinc, B vitamins and iron. For those of you who haven’t tried turmeric lattes yet, I advice you to start with a small amount of turmeric, and increase the amount in your lattes slowly. Some people can find the taste over powering. Spicy Turmeric Latte Save Print Prep time 3 mins Cook time 5 mins Total time 8 mins…

Tropical Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Bowls are very “on trend” in the world of Instagram.  They are more than just a beautiful thing to look at – if you combine the right ingredients they also taste damn delicious.  Packed full of nutrients, dietary fibre and anti oxidants.  I love Smoothie Bowls as they force you to sit down at eat.  Too often we are running around at the beginning of the day and dont sit down to appreciate our food.  I like to make smoothie bowls with little to no liquid so that they are nice and thick (just like ice cream), however only try this if you have a food processor, Thermomix or super powerful blender.  This combination is Summer in a bowl, it reminds me of an ice cream I used to eat when visiting my God Mother in Omaha during hot kiwi Summer breaks. Tropical fruit is a great addition to your…

Kumara Nachos with Salsa

Nachos originated in Mexico in 1943 – made from fried tortilla, cheese and jalapeno’s.  Nowadays, Nachos are topped with anything from refried beans, black beans, beef, chicken, lettuce, guacamole and many different types of cheeses… the list goes on.  I wanted to make a version that were grain, dairy and legume free to suit anyone who is Paleo.  This recipe is pretty budget friendly, you can pick up minced beef and kumara (sweet potato to all the non Kiwi’s) for a great price year round and same goes for avocado’s. When they aren’t in season you can omit from the recipe and it won’t make a difference to the overall taste.  With the beef mixture you can add in a 400g can of tinned tomatoes, I choose to leave them out and replace with salsa.  Enjoy!
