DRAGON FRUIT and Chia layered smoothie

Firstly, you gotta make sure you check out the Pink Power Tonic by Misty Day Plant Potions. The powder gave this smoothie those beautiful shades of pink and a sweet but refresssshing flavour.

100% VEGAN. 100% Dragon fruit (Pitaya) powder. 100% natural and contains NO sugar. You can add a teaspoon of powder into hot drinks, desserts, smoothies, drinks and baking in general for extra nutrition and colour! I love knowing that I have a completely natural and vegan food colouring for my smoothies. It’s quite pricey for 50g BUT it will last if you use it well and is very much worth it.

Click here to view the product, they also do a range of other tonic powders that help provide energy, detox, calmness and have their own individual benefits.

RAW Matcha and Cacao oat slices

Last nights full moon had me doing so many things, and even though I have actually been VERY exhausted, I’ve managed quite easily. My mind is constantly running through things that I want to do and then figuring out ways that I make those things happen. It’s been difficult trying to sleep at night because I have all this energy and excitement that’s keeping me up (makes a change). Up until a few days ago, I’ve been so unmotivated and drained and have struggled to get out of this mess that I am in. I’ve also stopped doing so many things that I love doing due to being that drained. So trust me, I’m THANKING the full moon for sending me that positivity this week.

Annnd, because of yesterday’s full moon’s expressive energy, I managed to put together a recipe for these yummy Matcha and cacao oat slices.

RAW VEGAN Cashew Cheesecake

Oh, you should have seen the mess I made trying to make this cheesecake. I had to make the base twice because I somehow decided to cook it first which ovvvvvbiously made it go into a hard kind of sponge. Don’t know how I didn’t think that through before, but this is me in general when cooking or baking.

 

OAT BASE:

2 cup of gluten free oats – 1 cups blended into flour, 1 cup whole

1 cup of prunes (soaked for 10 minutes and blended)

1/4 melted Coconut oil

1 tsp of cinnamon

Direction:

1 – Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix until it becomes a doughy texture – Add almond milk if too dry.

2 – Roll into a ball and place into a circle non stick pan.

3 – Press down using your hands or a spoon until the dough takes the entire form of the pan. See image below.

‘Cheese’:

4 cups of cashew nuts (soaked for 2 hours min)

1 cup of vegan cream cheese

2 tablespoons of lemon Juice

1 tsp of lemon zest

4 tablespoons of maple syrup

2 tsp of caramel syrup

1-2 cups of any nut milk – more if needed

Pinch of salt

For colouring: Indigo plant pigment

Direction:

1 – Firstly, blend the cashew nuts on their own, adding some of the milk to liquify it a little more if needed. The mixture should be thick and creamy, with no lumps!

2 – Add in the vegan cream cheese and all the other ingredients and blend until properly combined.

3 – Pour half of the cashew cheese mixture over the top of your oat base and flatten. Place into freezer for 10 minutes.

4 – Now, add your colouring to the remaining half of the cashew mixture and blend. ADVICE – If you are using Indigo plant pigment, only use a pinch! It is very strong and the colour spreads very easily. It also takes ages to get off your hands, so use a spoon.

5 – Pour on top of the first layer of cashew cheese, flatten and place into the freezer until it hardens. Take it out of the freezer 2 hours before you plan to eat it.

Breakfast bowl

Had a go at putting together a little video for you guys, I’m more of a visual person so seeing a step by step video on how to make something is so much easier to take in than reading instructions. I will TRY to do this often. It’s not done professionally or anything (probably shouldn’t have used an iPhone when I have a perfectly capable Canon DSLR camera) but hey it’s a start…

​Also, so excited that I am finally using these beautiful bowls that I bought back from Morocco (MISSING IT BTW). I should get more – Definitely an excuse to go back.


SMOOTHIE INGREDIENTS

1 Cup of Blueberries

2 Cups of Frozen Pineapple

1 Cup of kiwi (I would have put more but I am allergic – probably shouldn’t have put any but I love them too much)

1 Tablespoon of Hemp seeds

1 Cup of Almond Milk

 

ingrediants for breakfast bowl
Toppings – 1 tsp of ACAI POWDER and 1 tbsp of PEANUT BUTTER, berry granola, frozen cherries, kiwi, blueberries, banana, raisins and sprinkles.

Half a cup of sunflower seeds

Half a cup of vegan marshmallows

Pinch of salt

Half a cup of Coconut oil

4 tbsp of rose water

ICING

Icing sugar

vegan cream cheese

3 tbsp of coconut milk

3 tablespoons of DETOX BREW (by mistydayplantpotions) – more for a darker colour

 

Instructions:

  1. Melt the coconut oil, maple syrup, pink colouring and rose water in a frying pan.
  2. While your liquids are melting, blend 1 cup of oats until it becomes flour.
  3. Add the blended oats along with the other cup of whole oats into the frying pan.
  4. Add all other ingredients – salt, sunflower seeds, cranberries and marshmallows.
  5. Stir until the mixture combines together.
  6. Pour into a non stick square tray.
  7. Using a spoon or a spatula, spread the oat mixture evenly until it is flat, making sure to cover the edges.

8. Place into the fridge until you prepare the icing.

9. In a bowl, mix together all the icing ingredients mentioned above, apart from the DETOX BREW powder.

10. Mix until it becomes a thick liquid.

11. Take 3 tbsp of the icing a put into a cup (this is only to get a different shade of grey so that you can decorate the icing, ignore this part if you don’t care about that :)) add a pinch of the DETOX BREW powder and mix until it becomes a light grey.

12. Add the rest of the DETOX BREW powder into your original icing mixture until it becomes dark grey/black – whatever shade you like.

13. Pour the darker icing evenly on top of your oat mixture.

14. If you did decide to make a lighter shade of grey, using a fork or a knife just kind of lightly make whatever patterns you desire 🙂

15. To finish off, top with sun flower seeds, cranberries and marshmallows. I added some coconut and cornflower for a bit more colour.

16. Place into the fridge for 2 hours min.

 

17. Cut into squares or rectangles and serveeeeeee. Or take pictures like I did whilst your family is moaning at you to hurry up so that they can try it.
