guest recipe: paleo coconut bread (three ingredients!)

cake

Those who know me would say that I’m a little short on patience. I want to get things done fast, I move fast and I eat fast. It’s something I’m working on – I have to consciously remind myself that there’s no rush to do things.

My lack of patience is also probably why I tend to make things that are either low on fuss, done in a relatively short amount of time, or with few ingredients – which is why this three-ingredient recipe instantly caught my eye. Yep, you read that right: three ingredients! It’s as easy as making a cup of tea. Seriously.

Who needs to buy a chocolate milkshake, thickshake or ice-cream drink concoction when this healthy smoothie tastes SO MUCH better and it’s good for you (you’ll be satisfying your chocolate craving while sneaking in some veggie goodness thanks to the baby spinach. Plus, blending the chia seeds makes them more easily absorbed in the body).

I thought I’d write a quick post on this hugely popular pic I posted up on Instagram recently. If you’ve been reading my posts long enough (thank you! x), you’ll know it’s no secret that I love raw cacao. I can’t get enough it. Some of the ways I’ve used the raw chocolate goodness is in pancakes and porridge.

If there’s one thing I love about healthy food, it’s being able to recreate naughty desserts with raw, wholefood, delicious ingredients.

Some of my faves include The Farm‘s Healthy Chocolate Ice-Cream, 5-Minute Choc Avocado Mousse and my Very Chocolately “Cherry Ripe” Smoothie.
