Banana magic!

One of my favorite snacks – it’s extremely low in calories yet filled with nutrients!

I’m talking about my banana wraps which are really easy to prepare but require a dehydrator for the preparation.

I like to fill them with almond butter, goji, cacao nibs and fresh fruit!

Ingredients

2 bananas

1/2 cup flaxmeal

1/2 cup water

1 tbsp cacao powder

Method

1. Blend all ingredients together

2. Spread on dehydrator tray forming small pancakes

3. Dehydrate for 7 hours at 120’F

Double chocolate yum

Chocolate nice cream and brownies for breakfast? I say why not?! They’re made with purely organic and nutritious ingredients!

I know that nice cream is quite basic but it deserves a post! There are so many options to enrich its taste and texture, making it a great breakfast/ snack/ dessert.

The brownies ingredients is already on the blog (1-minute life changing brownies).

Addictive green smoothie

You no longer have to pretend to like green smoothies – this one is really tasty!!

Packed with fiber, minerals and vitamins, it’s my latest addiction!

Ingredients

1.5 cups organic coconut water

1/2 cup spinach

1 small banana

1/4 cup avocado

1 tbsp maca

Coco-superfood balls

These energy balls may work as a snack, dessert or breakfast as they’re light and loaded with nutrients!

I’ve prepared them ahead of a long business trip – I always travel with a batch of homemade snacks as celiac disease + vegan diet can be challenging! You can either store them in the fridge or freeze them for months which is really practical.

I had them for breakfast this morning with a “double shot” : beetroot smoothie (coconut water-pineapple-green apple-beetroot) and chocolate smoothie (coconut water-banana-carob-maca)

Ingredients

1 cup dates

1/4 cup chia seeds

1 tbsp cacao powder or carob (I used carob)

2 tbsp virgin coconut oil

2 tbsp desiccated coconut

Method

1. Start by blending dates and coconut oil in a food processor.

2. Add the other ingredients and pulse once of twice

3. Roll into balls and dust with coconut then refrigerate!

A dessert like no other!

Raw chocolate cookie dough with fruit kebabs – a refreshing and indulgent dessert made of organic ingredients! The best part is that it’s ready within minutes!

Ingredients

3/4 cup almond flour

3 tbsp coconut flour

5 tbsp coconut nectar

2 tbsp coconut oil

5 tbsp cacao powder

Pinch of sea salt

Method

1. Gradually mix all ingredients together in a large bowl starting with dry ingredients

2. Either turn into cookie balls or transfer to small serving cups as I did

3. Refrigerate for up to an hour

4. Dig in!

My favorite savory crackers!

They’re vegan, raw, light and oh-so flavorful – I’m taking about my sunflower seeds crackers which are great accompaniment for salads, smashed avo, vegan cheese… Anything really!

The crackers contain sundried tomatoes which gives them a rice and unique taste.

I’m having some tonight with a warm stir fry of seasonal vegetables which I marinated in tamari, miso and sesame oil!

1/2 cup flax meal

1/4 cup sundried tomatoes
