Welcome to the SUPER NATURE Journal. A collection of delicious ways to enjoy your Queen of greens, as well as informative pieces on living your unique, ultimate health and wellness.
First, let's start with something sweet, and wonderful for warm Summer days. This is so easy to make, a classic flavour favourite, and with the nutritional delight of added greens, you know it's a multi-tasker!
SUPER NATURE organic wheatgrass powder lends itself perfectly to raw treats and non heat recipes, as well as straight up shots. Used as a natural colouring, it's neutral taste is easily incorporated into any of your creations, and this is the perfect place to start.
You will need...
1 cup raw, unsalted cashews, soaked overnight in filtered water, or for 1 hour in hot boiled water, strained, and rinsed
3 teaspoons SUPER NATURE organic wheatgrass powder
1/4 maple syrup, or rice malt syrup
6-8 drops of peppermint essential oil, only if organic, or 1/2 a teaspoon of peppermint essence, or, 1 large handful of fresh mint leaves, stalks included
1 can organic coconut cream, we use and recommend Ceres Organics here in New Zealand for its pure ingredients, no fillers or thickeners and sweeteners. Depending on the brand you use, this may effect the result of the recipe
1 cup roughly chopped dark, dairy free chocolate, or dark, dairy free chocolate buttons
Place all the ingredients, apart from the chocolate, into a food processor or blender, and whiz until silky smooth. Pour out into a container, stir through the chocolate, place a lid on, and into the freezer.
If you can remember, set your alarm for 1 hour, take out the ice cream and give it another good stir. This will help your chocolate from dropping to the bottom.
Do this once more, to then leave overnight to set.
A handy tip to help prevent that icy layer that non dairy ice cream can often get, is to place a layer of tin foil over the top, flush with the surface, then the lid on top again.
Before serving, take out and let stand at room temperature for around 15-20 minutes to soften slightly.
