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.

Butternut, Pepita & Prosciutto Biscuits

IMG_8843

I just made this recipe up this morning to take to the local Brisbane Paleo ‘meet up’. I hope they like it. If I was making these for a standard diet outing I would have added some salt, as most people like strong flavours, sweet or savoury. I figured if any group should be able to appreciate wholefood natural flavours it should be this group and I am excited to get their feedback, but a little nervous.  Perhaps I should have just made sweets….

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.

Chicken & Asparagus Risotto

IMG_6188

This is a great comfort food recipe for GAPSters and other grain free dieters missing their rice. I first made this dish while on GAPS intro and found it was easier and quicker than conventional risotto as there was not sweating over the stove stirring and less washing up as it’s a one pot & vitamix dish.
