My Recipes
Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake With Tigernut Base
Today I finally got around to re-making this Vegan Chocolate & Raspberry Slice. This recipe includes tiger nuts in the base, they have a natural sweetness and chewy texture which I’m just loving. Perfect for blending in #MyVitamix . If you don’t have tiger nuts you can replace them with extra nuts of your choice. You can find the full recipe @craverealfood by clicking the link in my profile. If you’ve got an abundance of chocolate eggs in the house why not melt them down to make this slice and freeze so you’re not tempted to gobble them down in one sitting. I also froze some fresh blueberries and raspberries which I picked up from @mortdalefruitbox for the top along with chopped pistachios. They make for a pretty addition, don’t you think?
Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl
I’d like to share my recipe for this smoothie bowl with you from the other day. Using #myvitamix I blended 1 frozen banana, 1/2 cup frozen raspberries, 1 small zucchini, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, 1/2 tsp maca powder and @naturalrawc coconut water. I have a very important question to ask. I’ve been thinking about merging my 2 IG pages to match my blog name. It would mean closing my current @craverealfood and then re-naming this page @craverealfood. What do you think? Do you like the name? Also don’t forget to enter, @themueslisugarfree ’s competition to win some yummy muesli, like the gluten free muesli topping my smoothie bowl.

Buckwheat Waffles With Berries
I was given a bag of teff seeds a few months back and really didn’t know what to do with them. I noticed Ash from @nourishmemum had posted a few recipes recently including teff flour. Using my vitamix I ground the teff seeds into a flour and made her Buckwheat + Teff Coconut Waffles for brekky.
Raspberry And Coconut Ice Cream
That moment I have no patience waiting for this ice cream to set . A messy but fun recipe test today for vegan @iquitsugar friendly Raspberry & Coconut ice cream. I’m happy to report it did set with more time in the freezer and was delicious, although didn't last long.
Matcha Mint Swirl Chocolate Smoothie Bowl
Breakfast is a inspired by Jess’ @choosingchia Matcha Mint Chocolate Chia Pudding, with a slight twist. I blended the ingredients to make a Matcha Mint Cacao Chia Smoothie bowl. To complete breakfast I added my homemade Raspberry Granola which was inspired by my 13 y/o daughter and an excuse to add a little bit of Pink Magic. Jess has so many gorgeous puddings and especially pink bowls, it only seems fitting. Choosing my organic oats, nuts and chia seeds from @NakedFoods this feels more like dessert than breakfast. Congratulations on your 133K, now 139K a beautiful and inspiring account to follow.
Ginger, Cauliflower, Roasted Turnip & Turmeric Soup
Last day of winter calls for an immune boosting Ginger, Cauliflower, roasted turnip & turmeric soup using @eclipseorganics spices. I added swirls of beetroot, pesto & coconut cream finished off with cumin roasted cauliflowerettes & pumpkin seeds. I’ve missed the cut off to enter this photo for the @vitamix_aunz #VitamixSoupArt competition. Good Luck to everyone who has entered. You can see why a #vitamix would be amazing here, coz lumpy soup!
Lentil And Sweet Potato Soup
Tonights family meal is Spicy Thai Lentil & Sweet Potato soup with cumin roasted chick peas, celery leaf & lime dressing & a coconut cream drizzle. Recipe was inspired by @iquitsugar Thai Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Soup from the last round of #iqs8wp. I’ve gone all out tonight as I wanted to hopefully impress @vitamix_aunz with my soup cooking skills and enter this photo into their #VitamixSoupArt competition. I need to replace my 23 year old blender, which pardon the pun is just not cutting’ it and doesn’t have the capacity to hold enough food in one go for my family! I can only imagine the smooth silky soups, nut butters, smoothies & desserts I could make with a Vitamix Professional series 500
Roasted Squash Laksa Bake
Tonights dinner is by Jamie Oliver, well at least the recipe is his book 'Jamie's Roasted Squash Laksa Bake, Chicken, Lemongrass, Peanuts & Rice’. I’ve made this before and love the thai flavours in this dish and the fact it’s all cooked in one pan. Too easy peazy, as Jamie would say. Last week I was gifted the @iquitsugar One-Pot Wonders eBook and look forward to diving into a few of these recipes this week. Do you have a favourite one-pot wonder meal that you make regularly?
Homemade Feta With Smashed Avocado, Quinoa, Rocket On Sourdough Topped With…
I feel this morning's breakfast needs a drum roll… homemade feta (insert pause for effect) with smashed avocado, quinoa, rocket on sourdough topped with pomegranate and chia seeds. Recipe is based on a breakfast from the I Quit Sugar 8 Week program #iqs8wp @iquitsugar. But this time, I’ve made my own feta cheese using @omnom.cheesemaking Mediterranean kit. Thank you Marly for supplying me with a kit to test drive. I’m excited with my first attempt at Feta. The kit contains instructions, for making a range of cheeses along with ingredients and equipment. This would make for a great school holiday activity.
School holiday baking with kids resulted in some fun and messy lamington making!! Recipe by @yummololaberry from her #thehappycookbook which is #paleo and #glutenfree My only change to the recipe was swapping the Maple Syrup for a #fructosefree sweetener #ricemaltsyrup by @pureharvest. I was lucky enough to meet Lola in July and hear her speak at I was so impressed by her happy and healthy attitude to eating and this shows in her gorgeous cook book.
