Peanut butter day

24 Jan All Hail Peanut Butter!

Ah, peanut butter. The giver of life. The light at the end of a long dark day. The little (or not-so-little) pick me up that just seems to make life that little bit sweeter.

From an unbeatable dip for cucumber sticks to an indulgent toast topping and an instant off-the-spoon pick me up, it’s safe to say it’s our favourite office companion at Coco HQ! Some say a home without a dog is just a house – well, we’d go as far as to say that an office without peanut butter is just a building.

Okay, so you get it: we’re crazy about peanut butter. Possibly almost as crazy as we are about coconuts, and that’s saying something. So we’re getting in on the action for arguably one of the most important public holidays in our calendar: World Peanut Butter Day. To celebrate, we’ve compiled a selection of our most-loved peanut butter recipes. From a natural take on the famous peanut butter cup to a devilishly good peanut rice dish, we’ve got you covered. Let’s get making!

Featuring our very own multi-award winning Organic Coconut Oil, Rachel’s ingenious creations are sweet indulgence at a not-so-naughty price. Shall we get mixing?

.

What you’ll need:

For the vanilla chocolate chip nice cream:
- 2 ripe bananas (freeze these overnight!)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- 2½ teaspoons cacao nibs

For the cookies:
- 95g cashew nuts
- 40g ground almonds
- 8 medjool dates, pitted
- 2 tablespoons maple (or coconut) syrup
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, meltedAdd to cart

Let’s get started! 

1. Firstly, let’s get cracking with the nice cream. Whizz your frozen bananas in a food processor until nice and smooth (this might take a little while!). 
2. Once smooth, throw in the vanilla and blend again, then stir in the cacao nibs. Transfer your nice cream to a bowl and allow to set in the freezer.
3. Next, pop your nuts into the food processor and blitz until floury. Add the rest of the cookie ingredients and pulse again – the mixture should come together to allow you to form a dough in your hands.
4. To make the cookie shape, split the dough into equal parts, roll into a ball and flatten onto a lined tray. Transfer to the freezer for half an hour to set.
5. For the fudge sauce, combine the melted coconut oil and maple (or coconut) syrup. Then, add the carob powder a little at a time and keep stirring until you have a thick treacle-like sauce.
6. Once your ice cream has hardened, take a scoop and pile it onto a cookie then top with some carob fudge sauce, and whack another cookie on the top. Time to dig in!

Christmas Pudding

15 Dec Mini Vegan & Gluten Free Christmas Puddings

Christmas pudding: the ultimate festive luxury for some, a muddled mash-up of strange spiced fruit for others. Love it, or hate it, we’re confident we can all agree that nothing says ‘Christmas’ quite like an up-side down, flame engulfed, fruit pudding. And this pyrotechnic display is just the start of the excitement – enter numerous dollops of brandy butter, lashings of cream and an entire tub of ice-cream. If you haven’t indulged in this rich alcohol-soaked tradition and subsequently fallen into a deep, highly satisfying food comma you simply haven’t ‘done’ Christmas.

Luckily, Niki (@RebelRecipes) is here to proudly lead the way for tricky-tummies everywhere. Her ingenious raw, vegan and gluten free mini Christmas puds, are also lighter than the original but just as jam-packed with juicy fruits and aromatic spices. Plus, each individual little pud is finished with a generous drizzling of coconut cream – what more could we ask for?  Now you really can have your Christmas pud and eat it. So, shall we get mixing?

For the pudding:
- 15g goji berries
- 150g dried dates
- 40g cranberries
- 50g apricots
- 50g figs
- 40g raisins
- 50g almonds
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 10g yellow raisins
- 2 tablespoons flaxseeds
- 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cardamom
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- Juice ½ orange
- 2 tablespoons ginger, grated
- 2 tablespoons yellow raisins
- 2 tablespoons cashew nuts
- A pinch of sea salt

For the coconut cream:
- 4 tablespoons desiccated coconutAdd to cart
- ½ teaspoon vanilla powder
- A little water

To top:
- Pomegranate seeds
- Star anise


Let’s get started!

1. Begin by soaking your dried fruit in water for 2-3 hours, or until soft. Squeeze any excess liquid from the fruit then toss into a food processor and whizz for a few seconds.
2. Remove the dried fruit mix from your food processor and throw in the almonds and pulse until you’re left with a fine crumb. Add all the remaining dry mix and pulse until well combined.
3. Next, throw in the grated ginger, soaked fruit, orange juice, additional raisins, cashews and salt, then mix thoroughly.
4. Finally grease around four small ramekins (baking dishes) with coconut oil then spoon in your mixture. Press down firmly to ensure that all-important mound, then cover with cling film and pop in the fridge to harden for 2-3 hours.
5. To make the coconut cream, simply blitz all three coconut cream ingredients in a food processor.
6. When your puds are sufficiently hard, run a knife around the outside of the pots then turn them upside down. Finally, top with coconut cream and pomegranates.

- 3 tablespoons carob powder (or cacao powder)
- 1-2 tablespoons water

- ½ cup (60g) cacao powder (or carob)
- ⅓ cup (70ml) melted coconut oilAdd to cart

For the orange cheesecake:

- ¼ cup coconut syrupAdd to cart
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or extract)
- ½ cup (118ml) melted coconut oilAdd to cart
- 2 tablespoons coconut butterAdd to cart
- Juice of two oranges
- Zest of two oranges
- 4 drops orange essential oil (optional)

For the chocolate topping:
- 2 large tablespoons of melted coconut oilAdd to cart
- 3 large tablespoons of carob powder (or cacao)
- 3 tables coconut syrupAdd to cart
- 2-3 drops orange essential oil


Let’s get started!

For the brownie layer:
1. Place the nuts into a food processor and pulse until they are roughly chopped into small pieces.
2. Add the dates and pulse until they are nicely combined with the nuts.
3. Now, pour in your coconut syrup and carob powder and pulse to combine.
4. Add the water and pulse again until the mixture comes together in a dough-like substance (if it rolls into a ball in the food processor you’re nailing it!)
5. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and press firmly into the bottom. If it is sticky, you may need to wet your fingers slightly before pressing it down.
6. Time to pop it in the freezer to harden whilst you make the chocolate cheesecake layer!

For the chocolate cheesecake:
1. For this recipe it pays to plan ahead- either soak your cashews overnight, or for at least 4-6 hours.
2. Next drain your cashews before placing them into a blender.
3. Throw in all your other ingredients and blend together until smooth and creamy. (You can add extra water, one tablespoon at a time if you need to help things along)
4. Once blended pour the mixture over the top of the brownie layer and pop it in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm up whilst you make the orange cheesecake. Make sure your brownie layer is firm before pouring over the orange layer in order to get clear definition between the layers!

For the orange cheesecake:
1. Place the cashews, coconut syrup, vanilla, coconut oil and orange juice into a blender and blend until nice & smooth.
2. Next throw in the coconut butter and orange zest and blend again until combined.
3. It’s tasting time! Add the orange oil to the mixture a drop at a time until you have reached your desired level of orange-ness then blend again to combine.
4. Pour the mixture over the top of the hardened chocolate layer then place the cheesecake back into the freezer to harden for approx 3-4 hours until frozen solid.

For the chocolate topping:
1. Melt the coconut oil over a Bain-Marie so you don’t overheat the oil.
2. Stir in the carob (or cacao) and coconut syrup until combined. Ideally the mixture should be slightly thick and slightly viscous (like a thicker version of melted chocolate!). If it is not thick enough, add more carob.
3. Give the mixture a taste, and add more coconut syrup if you have a sweet tooth!
4. Add the orange oil and stir to combine.
5. Remove the cheesecake from the tin, and pour the chocolate mixture slowly over the top of the cheesecake (allow to drip naturally down the sides of the cake to make it look extra delicious!
6. Lastly, place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden.
7. Enjoy!

Final tip: Defrost your scrumptious cheesecake for roughly 3-4 hours in the fridge before serving. Raw cheesecakes can be stored in the freezer in an airtight container for a couple of months- if you can stay away from it that long!

- 145g coconut sugarAdd to cart
- ¼ teaspoon almond extract
- 3/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 400ml can light coconut milk


Let’s get started!
1. Throw your coconut milk, cherries, coconut cream, almond extract, and coconut sugar into your blender and whizz until smooth. Once this is finished, add your cashews and blend again until smooth. Next, add your xanthan gum and blend one final time: this will give the ice cream a more elastic, gooey texture.
2. Once completely smooth, pour the mixture into your ice cream machine. Allow the mixture to freeze and churn for approximately 35 minutes, until it thickens and forms a slightly soft ice cream consistency.
3. When this is done, transfer your ice cream into a tupperware container or loaf tin, and transfer it to the freezer to firm for around half an hour. (You could also enjoy this straight away if you prefer softer ice cream.)
4. When the ice cream has frozen to your desired consistency, remove it from the freezer and enjoy! If you don’t have it all at once, feel free to keep it in the freezer until the next time.

Coconut Paleo Cookies Raweos

25 Aug RAWEOS

Who doesn’t love Oreos? Chocolatey, creamy, and delicious – it’s a shame they’re so unhealthy! Or so we thought…until our lovely contributing chef Rachel Smith (@Rawberryfields) showed us the light! These Raweos are (dare we say it) better than the real thing – and so much better for you too! Completely raw, and made with delicious ingredients like coconut oil, coconut butter, Medjool dates, and nuts, your taste buds and your body will thank you for these amazing sweet treats. Let’s get blending!

What you’ll need:
For the Oreo cookie:
– ½ cup almonds
– ¾ cup brazil or macadamia nuts
– ¼ cup pecans
– 12 Medjool dates
– 3 teaspoons water
– 3 teaspoons carob powder

For the Oreo filling:
– ¾ cup cashews
– 3 tablespoons coconut butter
– 2 tablespoons maple syrup
– 1 tablespoon coconut oil
– ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste

For the raw peanut butter:
– 1 cup raw peanuts
– 2 teaspoons peanut oil
– 2 tablespoons maple syrup
– a pinch of Himalayan pink salt

Let’s get started!
For the Oreo cookie:
1. Place the nuts into a food processor, and pulse until they become a coarse flour.
2. Add in your dates, and pulse until well combined with the nuts!
3. Next, add in your maple syrup and carob powder, and pulse until it has all combined into a dough. The mixture should be sticky – if you find yours isn’t, add water one tablespoon at a time until it is.
4. Roll out the dough until it’s approximately half an inch thick, in between two sheets of greaseproof baking paper.
5. Using a biscuit cutter, cut your cookies to about 2 inches in diameter!
6. Place your cookies in the fridge while you make the delicious filling!

For the Oreo filling:
1. Soak your cashews for six hours, then place them in a blender and pulse until they break down into a chunky paste!
2. Add all your other filling ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.
3. Place in a bowl, and pop in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up!

For the raw peanut butter:
1. Place the peanuts into a food processor and pulse for about a minute, until they break into very small pieces.
2. Scrape the sides of your food processor and pulse again for about a minute until they have broken into tiny pieces. Repeat until they begin to clump together, like cookie dough!
3. Add the salt and peanut oil and pulse again until it becomes a smooth, creamy peanut butter. Spread the cream evenly onto the bottom cookie, and then spread a thin layer of peanut butter on top of the cream, before placing another cookie on top! Gently push down, and do the same for all of the cookies you’ve made. Place in the freezer for two hours, then get prepared for a real treat!

Coconut Nut Butter

19 May NUT BUTTER CUPS

These no-bake nut butter cups are another fabulous treat from Heather Adamson (@Fresheather)! Using only five clean ingredients, they are deliciously simple, and perfect for sharing among friends! This recipe is super quick to make: simply mix everything together and then pop it in the refrigerator! As we mentioned in our blog about the smoke points of cooking oils, coconut oil has a high melting point, making it ideal for no-bake treats like this, as it holds the mixture together perfectly! You can make your own nut butter (which may take some time, but is worth it!), or you can use store-bought – both will be delicious!

What you’ll need:

For the Nut Butter:
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 cup cashews
- 1 tablespoon melted coconut oilAdd to cart

For the Nut Butter Cups (makes 5-6):
- 2-3 tablespoons nut butter (homemade or store-bought!)
- ¾ cup cacao / cocoa powder
- ¾ cup melted coconut oilAdd to cart
- 3-4 tablespoons coconut syrupAdd to cart

 

Let’s get started!

For the Nut Butter:
Add the almonds and cashews to a high-speed blender or food processor, and switch on for about 30 seconds, then scrape down the sides. Repeatedly do this – the nut mixture will start to clump together, and eventually turn to nut butter consistency! This may take a while (up to 20 minutes) and the blender may heat up a bit, but don’t give up! To speed up the process, you can add in up to 1 tablespoon of coconut oil – highly recommended after the first few pulses as it will save you a lot of time!

For the Nut Butter Cups:
1. Start by combining the cacao, coconut oil, and coconut syrup, and then taste! If you prefer your chocolate to be sweeter, add in more coconut syrup – you can even add in a pinch of sea salt in you like!
2. Pour half of the mixture into 6 cupcake cases in a cupcake tray. Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes.
3. Add around 1 tablespoon of the nut butter to each of the cases, and spread out well.
4. Fill up each cup with the remaining chocolate, and bang the base of the tray on the worktop surface to even out the top.
5. You’re almost done – just pop it in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or so, and then enjoy!
