I can remember exactly when my obsession for raw treats started. I was working as an online health editor at the time and my colleague asked if I’d tried avocado chocolate mousse before. I was like, “Ew, what’s that?” As it turns out, I found it pretty amazing… I even made a 5 minute version of it here and, because I love it so much, I’ve made a paleo cake version here.
I love to transform simple, wholefood ingredients into decadent and delicious pretty looking things, just like these pancakes!
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).
Who can’t resist a ‘dessert for breakfast’ recipe? This piece of goodness is from Prevention’s new Sugar Smart Diet book that contains loads of low-sugar recipes. Great healthy inspo if you’re trying to cut down on the sweet stuff. This Strawberry-Coconut Chia Breakfast is my favourite out of all of the recipes because it contains some of my favourite ingredients.
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.
