One of the hardest things to give up is sugar and the most powerful and practical tip to helping you manage sugar cravings, is to always eat sweet things with protein and fat.  Step aside mass produced sweets and hello to this wonderful fudge!

The protein and fat in this wonderful recipe delay the release of the natural sugars into the blood stream, protecting you from insulin spikes.  And the sweetener used, coconut syrup, is lower in GI than white sugar and, combined with the natural sweetness of coconut, means you can use much less.

So when you sweet tooth becomes too much, here is an option that you can enjoy without the guilt!

Ingredients

Creates 20 small cubes

1 cup cacao butter buttons

2 tbsp coconut butter

2 tbsp coconut milk powder (optional, but adds creaminess)

3.5 tbsp Yumello argan oil cashew butter

3-4 tbsp Bali Nutra coconut syrup

1.5 tsp vanilla paste

1 tsp agar agar or powdered gelatin (optional, but helps to create a softer texture)

¾-1 tsp Taiki Tea Premium matcha powder

Pinch salt

 

Freeze-dried raspberries and melted white chocolate to decorate (optional)

White Chocolate fudge 4
Method
  • In a bain marie, very gently melt together the cacao buttons with the coconut butter. Stir until smooth and melted, then remove from the heat.
  • Allow the mix to cool slightly, then place into a blender with the remaining ingredients and blitz smooth – don’t worry, the mixture will appear dark green, but it will lighten once it sets! Taste and adjust sweetness as desired.
  • Pour into a lined loaf tin, then place in the freezer to firm up. Cut into cubes, then store in the fridge and enjoy.

OK, so here at Prüv HQ we have changed the rules of the universe and created a pizza that is actually good for you! Using our amazing Manna Vida gluten free flour and a whole heap of good-for-you veggies, this is the sort of pizza you actually can eat every day.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

Creates 1 large pizza, or 2 smaller pizzas

For the base

1 cup garbanzo bean flour

¼ cup oat flour

1 cup water

1 tbsp argan oil

1 tsp Spice Sanctuary smoked paprika flakes

¼ tsp Spice Sanctuary turmeric

½ tsp onion powder

½ tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper, to taste

 

For the tomato marinara sauce

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 red pepper

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 tbsp tomato puree

1 tsp Bali Nutra coconut syrup

1 tsp Spice Sanctuary smoked paprika flakes

Squeeze lemon juice

Handful fresh basil leaves

Salt and pepper, to taste

Socca pizza 5
For the tandoori cauliflower

1 large head cauliflower, broken into small florets

1 cup coconut yoghurt

1 tsp chilli powder (increase amount if you prefer things spicier!)

1 tsp Spice Sactuary ‘butter chicken’ spice

1 tsp Spice Sanctuary smoked paprika

½ tsp Spice Sanctuary Smoked cumin

1/2 tsp Spice Sanctuary turmeric

1 tsp minced ginger

1 tsp minced garlic

Juice one lemon

Large handful fresh coriander, leaves removed and stems finely chopped

2 tsp argan oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

For the mint yoghurt

1 cup coconut yoghurt

Large handful fresh coriander, finely chopped

Handful mint, finely chopped

1 tsp minced garlic

½ – 1 tsp minced ginger

1 tsp spice sanctuary chilli powder

Salt and pepper, to taste

For the pizza toppings –

One red onion, finely sliced

10 cherry tomatoes, sliced

Feta cheese, cubed (optional)

Method

1)      Start making your tandoori mix the night before. Mix together all ingredients for the paste, adjusting according to your taste, then place the cauliflower into the mix and stir to combine. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.

2)      At the same time, prepare your yoghurt by stirring together all ingredients. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.

3)      Once ready to cook your cauliflower, preheat the oven to 200C. Line a baking tray and place the cauliflower on top. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and slightly crisp, turning half-way through cooking.

4)      Make your tomato sauce by heating some argan oil in a pan. Add the garlic cloves and cook on a low to medium heat, stirring often, for a few minutes. Add the red pepper and the tomato puree and stir, cooking until the pepper has softened. Add the chopped tomatoes, bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for around 15-20 minutes, stirring often until thickened. Add your flavourings – the spice, salt and pepper, coconut sugar, lemon and basil – then place in a blender and blitz smooth. Set aside.

5)      Now, make your base by blitzing all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into a bowl and allow to thicken for around 20-30 minutes. Heat a touch of oil in a pan, then pour the batter over. Heat for 1-2 minutes, or until the batter comes away from the pan easily, then flip and cook the other side until golden. Set aside. Alternatively, pour into a lightly-oiled, lined, deep baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven (220C) for 10-12 minutes, or until golden.

6)      Prepare your pizza by spreading the tomato marinara over your cooked base. Scatter over the cauliflower, along with your toppings. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or so, or until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese melted.

7)      Drizzle over your mint yoghurt, then cut into slices and enjoy!
