Wild orange & choc raw slice

Wild orange pure essential oil is cold pressed from the peel of the fruit – having multiple health benefits and an energising aroma that uplifts the soul. It is highly sought after, due to its immune boosting and antibacterial properties. Wild orange essential oil is a potent formula of orange’s active ingredients. As a natural method for improving immunity and fighting environmental ailments, it is quite quickly becoming a popular remedy in Western society … although used throughout the Mediterranean, India & China for hundreds of years.

Everyday, I add drops of orange oil to my filtered sparkling water. Not only is it GOOD for me, but the water tastes bloody sensational!

The combination of orange and chocolate (cacao) would have to be one of my FAVES. This healthy and nutritional treat will leave you feeling totally rejuvenated & satisfied, the ultimate afternoon delight!

Raw mini passionfruit cheesecakes (GF)

With a kitchen wafting with the aroma of passionfruit, I knew it was an apt time to make a dessert. Straight up – Mr B requests cheesecake… so that is exactly what I created.

With no cooking required, these raw little cuties will take you no time at all – alas, the setting time…

To ensure passionfruit are at their ripest (and best), use when they are wrinkly and you can literally smell them through their skins.

Passionfruit are rich in the water soluble antioxidant – vitamin C, or ascorbic acid and fibre.

This recipe can be made vegan by omitting the honey and replacing with maple syrup.

ingredients

base

1/2 cup raw almonds

10 pitted dates

1/4 cup lupin flakes

pinch himalayan sea salt

cheesecake

1 & 1/2 cups raw cashews (soaked for a few hours & drained)

1/2 cup extra virgin organic coconut oil

2 tbsp raw honey

juice 1/2 lemon

1/2 cup organic coconut milk

1 vanilla bean

6 drops DOTERRA wild orange oil

6 passionfruit *pulp

method

In a food processor, blitz the base ingredients until they are fully combined – and a crumb like consistency. It should stick together between your fingers.

Divide the base between 6 small glasses or mini jars and press firmly, until compact.

Place the glasses in the fridge.

Rinse out the food processor and add the cashews. Blend for 5 or so minutes, or until creamy.

Add the remaining cheesecake ingredients and blitz until silky smooth. Pour the cheesecake mix over the bases in the 6 glasses and return to the fridge.

Cut the passionfruit in halves, scoop out the flesh and into a small bowl. Divide the pulp over the top of each of the mini cheesecakes and return to the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.

Choc Crackle Slice (GF, DF)

This recipe conjuers up memories of eating chocolate (and not so nutritious) crackles, as a child. It is very rich, hence why I cut into bite size portions…perfect for that little go-to treat. I’m usually good after 2 small squares!

Eating wholesome, natural sweets – with good quality ingredients and good fats are going to nourish your body and leave you feeling satisfied, unlike their processed counterparts. This is real food, gluten and dairy free.

 

YOU WILL NEED:

slice
1 cup dates
1/4 cup organic coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1/4 cup almonds (soaked)
2 tbsp organic raw cacao powder
1 tbsp coconut oil (raw)
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 vanilla bean
1/4 cup cashews (roasted and lightly salted)

 

topping

1/2 cup coconut oil (raw)
1/2 cup organic raw cacao powder
1 tbsp maple syrup

Line a small square pan with baking paper.

Place all of the ingredients (except the cashews) in a high powered food processor and blitz until combined. Add the cashews and pulse a few times (you want the cashews to stay fairly chunky).

Press into the lined pan and refrigerate.

Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the cacao powder and maple syrup.

Gently pour over your slice and place in the refrigerator immediately to set.

Cut into bite-sized squares.
