Who knew dessert could be made with brain-healthy superfoods?! This rich and decadent mousse is made from young Thai coconuts (found at Asian markets), raw cacao powder, almond butter, and raw honey. This recipe calls for the meat from one or two young Thai coconuts. Some people are intimidated by the idea of opening coconuts to get the meat . Video link included in recipe notes - it is easier than it sounds, and well worth the minimal effort! The fresh coconut water and delicious meat are amazing treats. The only thing you need is a meat cleaver or a 10-inch heavy kitchen knife to get started. Young Thai coconuts can be found at all Asian markets or most health food stores and come wrapped in plastic. You can use other types of coconut, but the meat is often not as soft. The meat from a young Thai coconut is usually similar to the consistency of tofu, very soft and perfect for use in superfood desserts.
This Grilled Portobello Burger Recipe will make you forget you arent eating meat! Delivering extraordinary flavor, mushrooms are high in fiber, B vitamins and potassium. Incorporate mushrooms into your dietary rotation for immune-boosting and cancer-prevention benefits. I love to pair the savory flavor with goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes when making this burger. Feel free to experiment with as many veggie toppings as you want and make sure to use a gluten-free bun!
Kale is a powerhouse green leafy superfood loaded with Vitamin K, A, and C. Its natural crunchiness is blended with aromatic Thai flavors of creamy coconut, spicy ginger, and zesty lime to liven the dish and have you thinking you just ordered out at your favorite Thai restaurant. Coconut milk helps increase the bioavailability of kale’s fat-soluble vitamins, while the natural sweetness and the brightness of lime help eliminate kale’s natural bitterness. Baby bella mushrooms and garbanzo beans boost cancer-protective properties and complete the protein and phytonutrient balance of this dish. Can be made as a meatless-monday (or any day) meal or served as a side dish. It's a breeze to create and one that will have you craving its flavors on a weekly basis.
