Raw Chocolate Superfood Soft Serve and Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese
Hi there, I hope you're having a great week! Today I have two new recipes to share with you. One sweet: chocolate superfood soft serve, and the other savory: vegan spaghetti bolognese that is entirely made of veggies and its sooo good!
Last weekend I taught a "Raw For Weight Loss and Detox" class and one of the things we made was a chocolate superfood soft serve. Its a super tasty way to get a dose of superfoods and it looks delicious too which is just as important. I just love how raw desserts can look completely indulgent all while being healthy! The soft serve uses chaga tea which is a powerful mushroom that grows in northern climates including Canada and I'm lucky to have a dad who harvests it. You can buy it in any health food store these days. It comes in a powder or small chunks and you brew a tea from it.
You can read a bit more about chaga and the other superfoods used in the soft serve in THIS POST HERE where you'll also find a similar recipe a shake/smoothie.
Chocolate Superfood Soft Serve
1/4 cup chaga tea, chilled
3 large frozen bananas
2-3 tablespoons cacao powder
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
1 tablespoon maca powder
1 tablespoon lucuma powder
1 tablespoon mesquite powder
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
Pinch of celtic sea salt
2 teaspoons cacao nibs
Blend the first set of ingredients until smooth in a high speed blender or a food processor. Just DON'T over process or it will start to get too melty. Add the cacao nibs and blend for a few seconds to break them down. Eat immediately. I drizzled the chocolate sauce recipe from my Sweetly Raw Desserts book. It adds a special touch but isn't necessary.
- Brew up a large batch of chaga to drink and use in smoothies! Also try my raw chocolate superfood shake RECIPE.
- Make sure the bananas are fully ripe, with brown spots. Make sure to peel them and break them into chunks before freezing.
- The salt brings out the flavours even more and also adds minerals. Don't be afraid of this healthy salt.
I garnished mine with cacao nibs, hemp seeds, and raw chocolates!
Next up its dinner time!
I'm loving this Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese these days.
I love it with zucchini noodles or cooked spaghetti squash - sometimes I even mix the two noodles together. It works with any other noodle. I make it for my hubby with brown rice noodles. You can find my new RECIPE VIDEO HERE on Youtube.
It's entirely made of veggies! Its such a great way to sneak veggies into you and your family's meal.
Have a great rest of the week!
