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.

In this hectic life we all lead, it is easy to live entirely in our heads, but attending Zena's classes over the last couple of years has enabled me to reconnect mind and body. Zena beautifully demonstrates how to move through the poses, whilst keeping an expert eye on us, to maximise what her students receive in each pose. I feel as strong and fit and as connected with my body and its possibilities as I have ever done in my life, and have always felt in such capable and knowledgable hands at Satya Yoga. The guided relaxation at the end of each class is wonderfully restorative, as are Zena's homemade nutritional treats, allowing us to leave class feeling thoroughly nurtured both inside and out! I enjoy Zena's classes so much I have gone from attending one to two a week.
