Pro Metabolic Orange Popsicles

pro metabolic orange popsiclesApparently real orange juice is quite the recovery wonder food. We always knew it had lots of Vitamin C but it also has magnesium and when combined with sea salt, hydrolysed gelatin and coconut water it’s better for electrolyte replacement after strenuous exercise, than the chemical laden sports drinks.

Sounds good to me.

Added here in this Coffee Gummies recipe, it gives a brilliant taste to the gummie lolly, which ends up all creamy, sweet and bursting with flavour.

Healthy Chocolate Paddle Pops

If I’d known these Healthy Chocolate Paddle Pops were so easy to make, I would have done it years ago!

I’ve been reading lots of recipes for banana ice-cream lately with some peeps even making whole recipe books about it! And most others declaring that it is soooo good. I’ve been meaning to try it for a while, but I don’t often eat bananas as I find them too starchy and just all too much really.

I’ve bought bananas a few times and cut it up and whacked it in the freezer with the intention of giving it a go, to see if it is ‘just like normal ice-cream’ as they say but every time I would forget and 3 months later – oops the frozen bananas are a bit too rank to do anything other than throw them away. (Sorry food waste police!)

Chocolate Travel Bars

Chocolate Travel BarsI wanted to create something that I could take with me for hiking adventures or even work when I don’t have a fridge handy. These Chocolate Travel Bars are the answer.

While I totally love my normal fudge/chocolate creations, they are strictly fridge to mouth options only, as they melt into a gooey mess within half an hour of being out of the chilly environment.

Not so practical for the lunchbox or if you want to take travel snacks.

Raw Coconut Bounty Cookies

coconut butter, paleo, raw diet, healthy, ketoAfter I nixed the peanut butter for peanut powder – less damaging unsaturated fat – I ventured to try Coconut Butter. So that’s not the oil but just the coconut meat mixed together to make a kind of butter. This led to a new recipe creation – Raw Coconut Bounty Cookies!

So brought the jar home from my local health shop and was excited to try it. Open it up and… it is as hard as a rock! What the…

Macadamia Date Slice with Coconut Cream Icing

dates, healthy, weight loss, adrian alford photography, loose skin, losing weight,

My forte is melt and mix slices because they work like 99% of time – easy, easy, easy – and that’s why I like this Macadamia Date Slice.

I’ve given up on coconut flour – that’s firmly in the too hard basket – it requires incredible patience and nearly a chemistry degree – and I have neither! Well no patience with cooking anyway – with people, that’s another story. I posted a coconut flour recipe run down on facebook last week from people who are far better at it than me – see it here.

My forte is melt and mix slices because they work like 99% of time – easy, easy, easy – and that’s the way I like it!

Simple Zucchini Slice – Grain Free

simple zucchini slice

I had attempted the traditional recipes of this simple zucchini slice from ones found online however, firstly I don’t eat flour, so I baulked at that ingredient.

I attempted to make one with coconut flour even allowing for the 1/3 cup to 1 cup of normal flour ratio as coconut flour is a whole other animal, however the result was too cakey, too dry, too sweet for a savoury dish and totally not the taste for which I was aiming.

I remember from my childhood days my cousins used to make this and I remember it being the same cakey texture. Nice for cake but not for this.
