Chocolate Acai Bliss Balls

Keep these tasty morsels in the fridge for a healthy sweet snack on the go! Acai is full of natural antioxidants and minerals including Vitamin A, potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium. Kiki Health Organic Acai Powder is made from pure organic, raw acai berries from the Amazon rainforest, which have been freeze-dried to retain their vital nutrients.

Ingredients:

  • 90g Medjool dates
  • 100g almond meal
  • 50g walnuts
  • 5 tablespoons of Kiki Health Organic Acai Powder
  • 2 tablespoons LSA or chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa or cacao powder
  • 3 teaspoons of coconut sugar
  • desiccated or powdered coconut (optional)

How to create:

Soften dates in hot water, letting them sit for about 5 minutes. Drain, then add and blitz all ingredients in a food processor. If your dough is too dry, add a little water or coconut oil. Roll the sticky mixture into balls, roll in coconut (if desired) and place on a plate to refrigerate for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Banana and Oat Protein Pancakes

Is there a better lazy Sunday breakfast than pancakes? We think not. These pancakes are a healthy and protein-filled take on your American diner style, containing oats, eggs, banana for sweetness and Kiki Health Organic Hemp Protein Powder. This plant-based powder is rich in natural minerals, vitamins and omegas, making it the ultimate protein and nutrient boost for a delicious breakfast meal.

Ingredients:

How to create:

Add all ingredients to a blender and blitz until your mixture is smooth. Heat up a non-stick pan on a medium heat and add some coconut oil, olive oil or butter once hot. Pour batter into desired pancake size, and cook until you see little bubbles along the edges, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer your pancakes to a plate and top with maple syrup, cooked or fresh fruit, almond butter, pecans or even a few chocolate chips!

Turmeric and Paprika Roast Sweet Potatoes

Try this twist on savoury roast potatoes for a boost of flavour and nutrients! Sweet potatoes (or orange kumera) are high in Vitamin A, while turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with a myriad of health benefits. However, turmeric (and its active compound curcumin) is only as beneficial as its source. Kiki Health Organic Turmeric Powder is sourced from a remote peninsula in Southern India, away form environmental impurities, and is carefully extracted and processed to ensure the highest grade available.

Ingredients:

  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Kiki Health Organic Turmeric Powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary (optional)

How to create:

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Chop sweet potatoes into cubes, and place in a large bowl with seasonings and olive oil. Use baking paper on a tray and spread evenly, then cook for 20 minutes before tossing, then a further 10 to 20 minutes until golden and tender. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary and serve!
