Use Natural Sweeteners Instead of Refined Sugar

There are so many natural products that can be used to sweeten up our food. I prefer soft dates (e.g., medjool dates) for my plant-based smoothie bowls or desserts. They are delicious, sweet and healthy—you won’t need any additional sugar. You may also use maple or agave syrup or superfoods like lucuma or carob powder, depending on how much sweetness you prefer and the type of food you’re preparing.

 

INGREDIENTS

Black Chia Pudding

2 tbsp chia seeds

²⁄³ cup coconut milk

1 tsp maple syrup

¹⁄³ tsp vanilla extract

¹⁄³ tsp activated coconut charcoal

 

Coconut Cream

1 frozen banana

1 soft date (e.g., medjool), pitted

1½ tbsp coconut flour

¹⁄³ cup coconut milk

 

Toppings

Blackberries

Baby coconuts or some fresh coconut cubes

 

METHOD

Combine all ingredients for the chia pudding in a bowl and stir very well. Let soak for at least 15 minutes while stirring the mixture repeatedly to avoid clumping. Mean - while, put all the ingredients for the coconut cream into a blender and blend until smooth. Put chia pudding and coconut cream into little jars in alternating layers. Top with fresh blackberries and some fresh cubed coconut or baby coconuts.

 

Food Secret!

“You eat with your eyes!” The power of our unconscious mind is strong. I am convinced that it’s not all about taste, but also about how we prepare and serve our food visually. Styling bowls or decorating pancake stacks may also strengthen your relationship to food and show you how beautiful foods and our nature can be. And don’t forget: Whatever you do, do it with passion!
