I hit the kitchen over the weekend and created these delicious coconut and goji berry bliss balls. They are inspired by Pana chocolate’s coconut and goji berry flavour. I’m a huge fan of Pana chocolate and I love the coconut and goji berry flavour, having created bliss balls that taste similar is heaven. They go down like a treat and will definitely fix that chocolate craving. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

1 Cup of Shredded coconut
1 Cup of Cashews
1 Tbsp of Coconut oil
½ Cup of Goji Berries
2 Tbsp of Cacao powder
10 Medjool date’s

 

Add cashews, shredded coconut, cacao powder and goji berries into a blender, blend until you get a crumbly texture. Remove pips from medjool dates, then add them into the blender. Blend until mixed thoroughly. Add coconut oil and blend until mixed. Roll into small balls. Store balls in the fridge, they will be ready to eat within 30 minutes, or you can eat them straight from the blender! Enjoy!

 

Makes 10, time required 10 minutes.

Matcha Coconut Latte

Matcha Latte

Matcha Latte

Matcha, Matcha, Matcha!

Matcha has become my new health food love! If you haven’t heard about it before, it has a great list of health benefits! It’s full of antioxidants, boosts energy levels, a great alternative to coffee, calms the mind, aids concentration and can go in pretty much everything (just ask the Japanese they love Matcha). Here’s my delicious Matcha latte recipe for you to try, enjoy and your welcome!

Ingredients

1 tsp of Matcha powder
½ Cup of Coconut milk
½ Cup of Hot water (90 degrees)
1 tsp of Rice malt syrup (or sweetener of your choice)

Boil a jug of hot water and turn it off just before it hits boiling point (water needs to be at 90 ° C – boiling point is 100°). Add Matcha powder into a cup and pour in a small amount of coconut milk. Add in a small about of hot water and whisk with a chasen (bamboo tea whisk). If you do not have chasen a teaspoon will do, but may not mix as well as a chasen. Pour in the the remainder of coconut milk and hot water and stir. Stir in rice malt syrup, enjoy!

Serves 1, time required 5 minutes.
