CAFE 2 U

On Wednesday I had the pleasure of heading to the Cafe 2 U & Uber Shape Gym fitness circuit with my best gals. We started the morning with a fun but tough circuit that has my legs feeling oh so sore.. but in a good way!! I love working out with friends..it makes it so much more enjoyable and a great way to socialise and get fit at the same time.

Cafe 2 U just launched their new Protein Shake range and the best word for me to describe them is delicious.. I consumed at least three which is probably way more than I needed to but they tasted so damn good! I love that Cafe 2 U brings the goods to your work place or venue too.. if only they could deliver it to my door front every day I'd be a happy gal! I also wish Nude Sisters would deliver me their raw treats on the daily.. YUM!

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

www.jeskaalee.com

Most of us crave something whether it be sweet or savoury am I right? For me I crave chocolate, usually dark chocolate (the good stuff) and if I am presented with chocolate I usually never turn it down.. it's just so good! I even got a little (a lot) excited when I discovered that a square of dark chocolate a day can assist with decreasing stress..score! 

In this post I am introducing a product I recently tried out and I am in love.. D.I.Y chocolate dream mousse that is easy as adding water and stirring.. yep that easy (Oh and I added some crushed almonds because they are delish too). Simply Natural Protein Mousse is a super easy snack, treat or dessert for any time of day I say. A huge plus is the mousse is also non GMO, gluten free, hypo allergenic.

The Simply Natural company formulate, manufacture and provide and innovative range of 100% natural solutions to your health and nutritional problems. They are also 100% Aussie owned and manufactured (Big Plus!) and they demand truth in labelling, quality of product whilst bringing out only innovative products.. have I got you interested? Head to their website to check out their products for yourself and do your taste buds a favour!

I cannot wait to try out the Tiramisu Dream & Choc Coconut mousse next. Oh and nope I didn't share with Baxter but he thought it smelt really good and just wanted to steal some and photobomb because he is a cheeky rat!

HOMEMADE ICED COFFEE

jeskaalee iced coffee recipe

Good Morning Beautiful & hello Friday ..I know a lot of you have one thing on your minds in the mornings and that is.. Coffee!! Am I right? I don't really drink a whole lot of it but there is a really modern but quirky coffee shop up the coast called Canteen based in Burleigh which I enjoy their oh so delicious iced coffee almost every time I eat there.. I think it's so freakin' good that I always want more (and sometimes do order another) what can I say I'm addicted!

I like it so much that I decide I would try (highlight try) to recreate it at home because sometimes it's fun getting creative in the kitchen! I have no idea of the exact ingredients in the one from Canteen but I used my wing it method and just went for feel & taste when I created this here one and sharing is caring so I wanted to share the recipe with you because I think it turned out quite well, if I do say so myself.


WHAT YOU NEED

You may like to use a fun mason jar or whatever drinking device you prefer.
You will also need: Almond + Milk + Honey + Coffee + Ice Cubes

HOW TO MAKE

You will need to make 1 x shot of coffee (or how ever much you like) using a coffee machine or instant coffee - totally up to your own preference + mix in a teaspoon of honey to the hot coffee, then let it cool. Once the coffee has cooled down slightly fill your jar with ice & pour in almond milk then add in your shot of coffee. Serve with a straw & before enjoying stir everything together with the straw until well blended. 
Most importantly enjoy! x

BANANA ICE CREAM

Making your own homemade & healthy banana ice cream couldn't be easier! … yummmmm! 
So Ive been doing a little pinterest-ing of late, as you know it's one of my favorite past times and there
 are definitely some very detailed recipes on how to make your own ice-cream ..but I much prefer to make it this quick & simple way & the biggest plus is it is healthy too!

When it comes to my recipes as some of you would also know I like to call them 'wing it' recipes I am not one to measure things specifically, I just go with what feels right & taste test along the way!


WHAT YOU'LL NEED

A Blender
Almond Milk (or other if you prefer)
4 x Ripe & Frozen bananas
Maver's Peanut Butter (or any nut spread you like)
Ground Cinnamon
Ground Nutmeg
Honey 
+ shaved almonds for topping


HOW TO MAKE

Blend the 4 x Bananas + a tiny bit of almond milk (enough to let the blades glide smoothly) in your blender.
Once banana is smooth add in 2 x Tbsp of Peanut Butter + a sprinkling of the cinnamon, nutmeg & a table spoon of honey (however much you like).
Blend all ingredients until blended well.
Serve immediately for soft-serve ice cream consistency or if you just can't wait! 

If you prefer harder ice cream, place it in a container in your freezer for a few hours & then indulge!


I hope you enjoy this delicious homemade ice-cream recipe, I think it's perfect for an after dinner dessert on these warmer nights!

RAW GOODNESS

Raw1.jpg

If you follow my instagram you would have seen last weekend I had my first attempt at creating a raw treat! I was a little nervous as I'm not too great when it comes to following recipes so it's always the anticipation game of what it going to taste & turn out like.. Let's just say my partner Jays enjoyed them.. okay more like he devoured them all in one night..but he didn't need to feel guilty as they were made from all raw, healthy and mostly organic ingredients & the huge plus for him being coeliac/dairy intolerant is they are gluten and dairy free.

I made my third batch this morning as they've been such a hit and so I thought I might share the delicousness with you all and post my recipe here for you so you can try them out for yourself because sharing is caring.. so fingers crossed they are a hit with your taste buds! Most of the ingredients I sourced came from Flannery's but you can also source them form your local health food store or Woolworth's whatever works best for you.  I really hope you enjoy making them & of course eating them as much as I do they are perfect for an afternoon treat or after dinner dessert! x


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 x Cup of unsalted cashews
  • 1 x Cup of raw almonds
  • 2 x Tbsp of cacao powder
  • 8 x pitted dates
  • 1 x Tbsp of coconut oil
  • 2 x Tbsp rice syrup
  • 1 x Tsp of Cinnamon
  • Desiccated Coconut, Shaved Almonds & Pepita's for rolling.

METHOD:

  • Process the cashews, almonds, cacao & cinnamon in a blender or food processor until they go crumbly. Then add in the dates and blend again. Add in the rice syrup and coconut oil and blend really well so no large chunks remain.
  • To test if the mixture is ready pinch together between your fingers and if it sticks together well this is the right consistency. 
  • Prepare 3 x bowls with desiccated coconut, shaved almonds & pepitas and now is the fun part! Grab out the mixture with clean hands and knead it to whatever size ball you want them between your hands. Then roll in desired topping from above. (I like to do even amount of each outer ingredient).
  • Refrigerate balls and leave for at least 1 hour before enjoying!
