low-fat bars contain ginger, which is a lovely winter spice for calming upset tums. Apricots are high in iron, which helps build good blood, so an all-round pick-me-up!
buckwheat, soaked and dehydrated ( I do plenty of this in advance and keep it in the fridge for whenever it’s needed.)
1/2 cup dessicated
25 dried unsulphured
1 tsp powdered ginger (a bit more if you like it!)
1 dsp coconut nectar (sugar alternative made from coconut.)
Grind the buckwheat and coconut to a fine powder in a coffee or nut grinder.
Transfer to a
food processor and add the apricots, ginger and coconut nectar.
Mix thoroughly until you have a sticky mixture.
Transfer the mixture to a silicone pie tray and spread evenly. Score into 8 bars with a pizza cutter.
Dehydrate for a few hours to repel some of the liquid.
freeze or refrigerate until needed.
This is perfect with
Yule log, or any sweet dessert. It is the consistency of whipped cream and tastes heavenly.
Sweet Cashew Cream
Cashew nuts, soaked
1 cup cranberry soak water (from soaking cranberries. Any other fruit soak water will do.)

Use straight away or keep in the fridge for a couple of days.

I’ve run out of spinach!
Luckily, Mr H should be able to pick me some up at work tonight, but meanwhile… what can I put in my
green smoothie? (I’ve taken to making sure I get a couple of pints of green smoothie every day because I feel better on it.)
Well, disaster averted because I have some standby Wheatgrass Powder; not as good as the fresh stuff, but not a bad substitute.
powder is 21% protein, 22% carbohydrate and only 2% fat. It has lots of fibre and also contains plenty of magnesium and zinc, as well as a bit of sodium.
I made this delicious quick
smoothie (which didn’t even need straining) Wheatgrass & Blueberry Super-Smoothie
Water Kefir (I always have some of this available!)
(I used frozen) Blueberries
flour Purple Corn
Agave nectar to taste
Blend everything together and enjoy
It’s a lovely dark purple colour, so my crown chakra is buzzing now!
