My yogi students will be thrilled that I have finally put this recipe on my blog, particularly Mrs H😀! Apologies it’s taken so long.

I must admit this isn’t my recipe, I came across it a year or so ago and just loved the vibrancy of the green (may favourite colour!). I sadly didn’t make a note of the creator, I send them gratitude  🙏🏻  for this truely scrumptious snack. It’s super healthy, easy to make and of course GF, DF, & sugar free. The chances are that you’ll have most of the ingredients in your pantry.

The only change I made from the original recipe was use rice syrup, which is easier to digest and not as sweet as maple syrup or honey. Feel free to use a different nut and what ever sweetener you have to hand.

I normally double the ingredents and freeze them. They take seconds to defrost so the best snack on the go!

    Recipe

  • 120g raw cacao butter
  • 5/6 tbsp rice syrup (depending on how sweet you want it)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of pink salt
  • 3 cups of macadamia nuts
  • 1 tsp matcha green tea powder

    Topping: I’ve used fresh figs & blackberries separately and they both go very well. You don’t have to top it with anything since it’s yummy on its own. I would urge you to be creative and experiment with what you have.

  1. Cacao butter, syrup, vanilla and salt to a small pan on very low heat and melt slowly.
  2. Add macadamia nuts to a food processor (I use a Kitchen Aid) and blend until completely smooth.
  3. Add the matcha and mix
  4. Add the cacao mixture and blend
  5. Pour the mixture in a lined tray and spread out to your desired thickness.
  6. Sprinkle with your desired topping if adding!
  7. And freeze to set.
  8. Once set, break into pieces and store in the fridge for 2 weeks or the freezer.

Satya Yoga was established in London in 2003 by Zena Kidd-May, who taught yoga to private individuals at her London studio for several years.

I was worried about joining a yoga class as I see myself as a tight, stiff person. I had had bad experiences of classes before that were too fast and not well explained and they had left me feeling I’d ‘failed’. Zena’s classes are completely different – they are calm and mindful and each new pose is well explained. We are given the space to work at our own pace and the time to take something personal from each pose. My body is still pretty tight, but I love the yoga classes and at each lesson appreciate what I am able to do with the right encouragement. Zena creates a very productive and calm atmosphere, where I feel I am free to do what works for me without having to be in competition with others.
