Cultured Cashew Eggnog Cocktail

egg nog
A cultured cocktail for the whole family…..
I made this dairy free eggnog for the first time this Christmas for my family and they all loved it.  The basic recipe can be enjoyed by the whole family and sometimes I add a splash of Cointreau to the big kids glasses.
My boy doesn’t like yoghurt, but he will drink my cultured eggnog in a heartbeat.

We also like to enjoy it as a quick breakfast entrée if we’re heading out early or meeting friends for brunch.

If you can’t get our cashew yoghurt, just substitute in any yoghurt to make your cultured eggnog.  Refer here for our stockists. Continue Reading →

Paleo Cultured Cacao Cashew Mousse

This decadent dessert ticks all the boxes for me….cultured, superfooods, high fat, antioxidants, wholefoods, raw, dairy free, activated, gluten free….

Actually the biggest tick is that it takes two minutes to make and only dirties the Vitamix (blender) which I use all day every day anyway.

This recipe makes 6 serves. My small ramekins are 7cm dia, and 4 cm high.

Sweet Spud Sprouted Buckwheat Soda Bread

This is my favourite bread recipe for so many reasons……

Sweet Spud Sprouted Buckwheat Soda BreadNot only does it taste delicious and is super simple to make, it’s structured from simple nutritious ingredients; buckwheat, sweet potato and chia seeds.

It is allergy free and free from gluten/grain, yeast, gum, sugar, preservative, dairy, egg, nut and oil.

I have made loads of variations of this recipe including wraps, loaves and pizza bases.  For those of you not familiar with ‘soda breads’ they are traditionally made with wheat flour, salt, bi carb SODA and buttermilk.  The reaction between the acidic buttermilk and the soda causes an instant rise/bubbling in the dough without the need for yeast, baking powder or egg.  I got the idea for this bread one day at my sons kindy when the teachers made a sandpit volcano erupt using bi carb soda, water, vinegar and food coloring.

PizzaPlease note that it is really important in this recipe to mix the wet and the dry mixes separately and to have the oven hot and your baking sheets, spoons etc ready before you combine them.  Remember it’s a soda bread and once you combine the wet and dry ingredients the chemical reaction starts immediately and you need to get your buns in the oven before they deflate.  Continue Reading →

Paleo Kale Waffles

 

My kale waffles are a huge hit in our house.  The kids love to have them with avocado and freshly squeezed lemon juice, cultured veggies and/or cultured cashew cheese.

I love them because they are super easy to make and a great way to get some leafy greens in.

They are Paleo and are free of dairy, grains, sugar, yeast, gums, soy & nuts.

Sprouted Grain Flour

IMG_8434

Sprouted flours are easier to digest and more nutritious than regular flour. Sprouting transforms the dormant grain into a living plant and actually creates vitamin content in particular B6 and folate and it actually creates vitamin C that wasn’t there at all before.   In addition to creating more vitamins it also breaks down phytic acid and other anti-nutrients in the grain so it doesn’t require further souring and you can use it in any quick recipe in place of regular flour.
