CLOSED: iHerb 60$ worth of Madre Labs Giveaway! + Fruit Salad + Banana Tiramisu

Hey guys! We've got an awesome giveaway for you courtesy of iherb.com and Madre Labs. I'll get into the details and how to enter in a moment. Let me just share with you first what we've been making!

A slice of berry life




Fruit Salad with Berry Syrup

Just mix together 1/2 tbsp of berry powder with 1 tbsp of agave syrup and 1 tbsp of water and drizzle over your favourite fruit!

We used Eureka Berries which literally contains every berry in existence!

Every berry under the sun in one container
We also got to try out a coffee mushroom blend called Cafeceps and used it to make tiramisu. Instead of cookies
though, we used bananas and soaked them in the coffee until they were completely buzzed.

Bobbing for bananas
 Banana Tiramisu

1 large banana, sliced vertically and cut into three (you'll have 6 pieces)
1 tbsp Cafeceps + 1 1/2 cups of water (or 1 1/2 cups of coffee)
chopped almonds
1 can of full fat coconut milk, chilled in the fridge
1 1/2 tbsp of agave nectar or maple syrup

Soak the bananas for around 15 minutes, or more if you want them extra strong. Spoon about a 1/2 cup of the chilled coconut milk into a blender (I used a magic bullet) and whip until it is the consistency of whipped cream. Fold in syrup. Layer half the bananas on the bottom of a ramekin or dessert bowl. Sprinkle with chopped almonds. Spoon on the coconut cream and top with another layer of bananas and finally layer the rest of the coconut cream on top.


The coconut cream is so fluffy and soft. Sprinkle with cocoa.





























Ok so now for the good stuff.

  50. By far, my favorite recipe of yours (that I happened to share in a recipe round-up on my blog a month or so ago) is your sweet potato pancake recipe! So delicious, and I love that they are gluten, dairy, egg, soy AND corn free! That's hard to find in a pancake. :) They also follow the Body Ecology Diet.

    UH-mazing!
