27. Frozen Cherry and Almond Cupcakes

🍁🍂 Day 27 and we are so close to the weekend I can almost smell it! When I have some extra time I like to experiment in the kitchen (shocker) and this is what I came up with last time. These pretty little things are the perfect balance of naughty and nice as the ingredients are healthy but they taste delicious 😇

What you will need (makes 6):
For the base
– 1/2 cup of peanut butter
– 1 1/4 cup of oats
– 4 tbsp melted coconut oil
– 1/4 cup maple syrup
– 1 tsp almond oil
For the topping
– 1 cup of pitted dark cherries (you can buy these frozen to save the pennies)
– 1 cup coconut milk
– 1 tbsp maple syrup
– 1 tbsp sifted icing sugar

Step 1
Mix all of the ingredients for the base together in a bowl. Add spoonfuls of the mixture to a cupcake baking tray (trying not to get carried away ‘taste testing’ the mixture). Pat the bases down into the holes until they are smooth.

Step 2
Use a blender or a food mixer to combine the topping ingredients together. Pour the smooth liquid over the bases.

Step 3
Place your tray into the freezer for at least 3 hours to set. Use a knife to poke the puds out when they have been out of the freezer for about 10 minutes to soften a little.

* If you’re like me and you like to know what’s in your food, you will be happy to know that these minis are pretty healthy.
* Rewired isn’t going to count the calories in them for you as there are not enough to be worried about.
* The ingredients in these raw cakes have many health benefits and I will list just a few:
Peanut butter is a wonderful way to introduce good fats and proteins into your diet. You will be helping your heart, your body’s iron absorption, cell development and boosting your metabolism.
Coconut Milk is a great vegan alternative to dairy, rich in fibre and B vitamins.
Maple syrup is my favourite sweetener and it is unrefined and natural so far better for you than sugar or ‘stevia.’ It’s great for skin and digestive function and you maybe surprised to find that it is actually relatively high in calcium – amazing!

Happy creating!

Guilt-free Coconut & Raspberry Puds

Hello people,

It’s Fridaywhoop! Today I returned from a week away with my girlfriends for my hen party so I’m in good spirits.

As I’m feeling all loved-up and romantical  I’ve decided to post a recipe just in time for Valentine’s day. This is something super easy to make with all natural ingredients so it’s guilt free and sweet enough to treat you and your other half this weekend or if you’re single this year, why not catch up with a friend and indulge

What you’ll need (makes 4 small or 2 large puddings)…

FullSizeRender[6]

– 15 minutes of your precious time
– 1 large handful of raspberries (frozen or fresh) and a few extra for decoration
– 1 small handful of blackberries (frozen or fresh)
– 1 avocado
– 2 tbsp agave nectar
– 1 tin of coconut milk (refrigerated – discard any excess water)
– 1.5 tsp ground ginger
– 1 tsp cinnamon (feel free add more if you fancy)
If you have a sweet tooth, feel free to add 1-2 teaspoons of brown sugar

– A sprinkling of desiccated coconut will add to the taste and texture of the puddings and also looks very pretty.

Step one
Put all of your ingredients into a mixer or blender (minus the desiccated coconut and extra raspberries).

Step two
Mix on a medium speed for 3-5 minutes. This will allow the coconut milk to whip and the mixture to become a mousse-like texture.

Step three
Up the speed to full for an extra minute to ensure the mixture is smooth (have a taste to see if you want to add any sugar or more spice).

Step four
Distribute evenly into serving bowls (or use empty jam jars).

Step five
Decorate the puds with the desiccated coconut and raspberries.

Step six
Leave to chill/set in the fridge for at least 15-20 minutes et voila!

*If you’re like me and like to know what’s in your food, you’ll be happy to know that these are healthy puds!

* Rewired encourage you to eat these as a part of a balanced diet and a regular exercise regimen.

*I can definitely tell you that the ingredients in these puddings have many benefits and I will list just a few:

Agave nectar is a natural sweetener made up mostly of fructose, a type of sugar found naturally in fruit and vegetables.

Raspberries are a super fruit! They are great for immune function and help with collagen production as well as having detoxifying qualities!

Blackberries are also detoxifiers. The help to balance electrolytes and encourage iron absorption.

Coconut Milk is a great vegan alternative to dairy, rich in fibre and B vitamins.

Happy creating!
