Matcha Tea Green Smoothie

The second recipe I’ve made with the Matcha Tea powder I recently got home and success! Such a fresh and healthy green smoothie. Perfect to start the day with or as a mid-day snack/drink.

Matcha Tea Green Smoothie (1 high glass)

-> Put everything in a blender and mix until smooth. Pour over to a high glass and drink with a large straw. ENJOY!

This smoothie is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar! 

Chili Roasted Cashews & Almonds

I got really curious to try out to make some spicy roasted nuts, the original recipe is from HERE, but I changed it a little and it turned out great.

Chili Roasted Cashews & Almonds (1 batch)

  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder Superfood365 from Gooddays
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 0,5 dl sukrin gold (or other sweetener, Lucuma powder works as well)
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 dl natural cashews
  • 1 dl natural almonds

-> Turn on the oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Mix all the spices in a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites lightly. Add the spices to the egg whites and then add the nuts. Stir well until all the nuts are covered. Pour out on a baking dish, make sure the nuts are separated well and not on top of each other. Put in the oven for 5 minutes, then stir and place back in the oven for 5 more minutes. Take out and let cool down before breaking pieces and ENJOY a delicious, healthy and spicy snack!

Store in the fridge up to a week.

Matcha Tea Chia-Pudding

I’ve heard so much about matcha tea lately and it’s all positive. Therefore, I had to get myself a try on it. This is the first recipe I’m making with the matcha tea and more it will be! It’s a real superfood!

Matcha Tea Chia-Pudding (1 portion)

-> Whisk the matcha tea, vanilla powder and milk together until all well blended. Then add the chia seeds and stir well. Pour over to a jar with a lid and put in the fridge over night. Take out in the morning and add the shredded zucchini, stir well and add your favorite toppings. I added the mix “Lördagsgodis Ekologiskt” which is the perfect mixture of cacao nibs, inka-berries, dried mango, and coconut flakes. Also added some blueberries. A delicious and nutritious start of the day!

This breakfast/snack is paleo-friendly, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and low carb. A real health boost to kick-start the day with.

High Protein Chocolate Balls

I don’t even need to look at the original recipe for my healthy chocolate balls anymore since I make them almost every weekend. They’re so good! Today I felt like trying something different but still similar. 

Ended up being an other alternative to delicious and healthy chocolate balls. These ones include more protein and an even stronger flavor of chocolate thanks to my favorite chocolate protein powder from dxb nutrition. I got my protein powder from Fitnessbutiken

High Protein Chocolate Balls (about 7 large ones) 

-> Put everything in a blender and mix until a dough without any chunks. Roll into balls and then roll them in coconut flakes. An alternative is to roll them in cacao nibs as well, very delicious! Put in the fridge for 20 minutes before starting to snack!  

These chocolate balls are 100 % free from gluten and added sugar. Also high in protein and if you exclude(or use a different kind) the protein powder it’s dairy free and paleo-friendly. 

Homemade Vanilla Granola (made in pan)

The homemade granola I make weekly (it’s my biggest addition!) I make in the oven. Today I tried to make a similar one but in a pan on the stove instead. It gives it a little different texture but it still tasted really good and it went much quicker to make!

Homemade Vanilla Granola (made in pan) 

-> Start to heat up a pan on medium-high, add the coconut oil. When it is melted add the nuts and let them become light brown. Then add the rest of the ingredients and maybe turn down the heat slightly. Stir well so nothing gets burned. When it is all light brown and dry turn of the heat and let cool down before eating.

I enjoy my granola on top of smoothies, yoghurt, quark, with milk, on oatmeal, on pancakes, on fruit salads and more. Just be creative!

Chocolate Caramel Balls

I advanced my regular chocolate balls recipe a little to include some more superfoods (maca powder and cacao nibs) and which made them even more delicious!

Chocolate Caramel Balls (8 balls)

  • 2.5 dl gluten free oats
  • 0.75 dl coconut oil
  • 1.5 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder from Superfood 365
  • 8 pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons brewed coffee (I had a little cinnamon in my coffee!)
  • a sprinkle of cacao nibs from Superfood 365
  • a sprinkle of sea salt
  • coconut flakes to roll the balls in

-> Put everything in a mixer and mix until a smooth dough. Roll into balls and roll them in the coconut flakes. Put in the fridge for 20-30 minutes before eating them.
