½ cup cocoa butter
3 tbsp of cocoa powder
3 tbsp of coconut nectar
Heat all ingredients in a saucepan on a low heat. Gently cook and stir until all melted and combined. Do not let it boil and set aside.
Coconut + hazelnut mix
3 tbsp creamed coconut
1 cup of desiccated coconut
1 tbsp of coconut nectar
3 tsp of hazelnut butter
1/2 cup of hazelnuts
Blend together and pour a thin layer of chocolate into the bottom of your molds. Then using a teaspoon put coconut blend evenly through chocolate in the mold then pour more chocolate over. Continue to do so once or twice. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. Leave aside a quarter of the mix for next step.
Coconut bananacream topping
Left overs of coconut mix
2 small bananas
1 tbsp of chia seeds
Blend all together and pour onto pre prepared chocolate bases. Smooth evenly over the chocolate molds and put back into the freezer for another half an hour. Remove from the freezer and store in the fridge covered for 3-4 days.
Mixed berry and white chocolate cheesecake
Now, this was one of those creations where my friend and I literally just threw things into the thermomix and hoped for the best. It ended up turning out incredibly and I’m almost going to claim it as the best cheesecake yet! Because it was such an experiment the measurements may be slightly off but just go with the flow and experiment yourself to find the right consistencies.
I’m up in Lennox Head at the moment and this area has so much amazing food-spiration. I’ve got a thermomix and a huge kitchen so I’m so excited to be able to just experiment and have fun while having access to so much amazing, fresh, organic produce. There’s something about warm weather and living by the ocean that gets my mind and body inspired. I hope you love this cheesecake as much as my mum, my friend and I did because we ate it within two days!
1 cup of almond
½ cup of hazelnuts
1 cup of medjool dates
Blend all ingredients together until consistently combined. Shape to bottom of a cake tin and set aside in the freezer.
White chocolate filling
4 cups soaked cashews
1 cup coconut cream (or coconut milk)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup raw organic honey
pinch of salt
Blend together until smooth. Set aside half the mixture for the berry filling and pour the other half evenly onto the pre made base and place into the freezer.
½ of the pre made white chocolate filling
1½ cups of organic, frozen mixed berries (or fresh)
¼ cup of raw organic honey
splash of water
Heat the water, honey and frozen berries in a small saucepan on a medium heat until the berries are defrosted. Pour the berries and the sauce from the berries into the left over white chocolate filling and blend again. Pour evenly over the pre prepared base and white chocolate layer and place into freezer for 2-3 hours to set.
Serve with coyo and store covered in the fridge for 2-3 days.
CHOCOLATE MOUSSE CUPS
These scrumptious little choccy cups were another experiment as I had left over soaked cashews from the berry and white chocolate cheesecake I made a few days back now. I basically just threw in things with out accurately measuring so be wary of that when you’re re creating them as my measurements may be a little off but trust your instinct to find the right consistenciesand taste as you go.
They are SO yummy with some coconut yogurt and are the perfect sweet treat after dinner. Enjoy!
1 ½ cups goji berries
½ cup of almonds
½ cup of hazelnuts
1 tbsp of coconut butter
Blend all ingredients together. I used extremely moist goji berries so aim to get them if you can and if the mixture doesn’t seem to be sticking together well enough add in a few medjool dates or some extra gojis. Place into a cup cake tin and cover the bottoms evenly and flatten them out.
1 ½ cup of soaked raw cashews
¾ cup of coconut cream (or coconut milk)
¼ cup of desiccated coconut
3 heaped tsp of raw cocoa powder
1 tbsp of creamed coconut
½ a cup of a sweetner (maple syrup, honey, agave, coconut necter)
Blend all ingredients together until a smooth, fluffy consistency is formed. Pour into the pre prepared cup cake tin bases smooth out the top. Put into the freezer for 2-3 hours to set, then keep in the fridge covered for 2-4 days.
