Michelle | plant-powered 💪🏼🌿  Bris/ GC 🌱 Acai - PB - Fitness Recipe developer 📩michelle-hc@hotmail.com “run2food” for @macr0mike & @veganbowls discount ✨

50 shades of pink in this gorgeous VALENTINES ACAI BOWL @mylkko 😍🌸 The amazing owner @ines_scholtes knew my weakness and created this thick & lush blend of: @amazoniaco acai, banana, raspberry, peanut butter & added choc vegan protein powder, topped with a vegan brownie, raspberry coulis , vanilla icecream and fresh strawberries ✨🍓Literally all my favourite things in a bowl, so OBVIOUSLY I had to try it 😍
Sounds like a super heavy rich bowl but the raspberry does wonders to cut down the richness to just the right level 👌🏼 Seriously though, who else is DROOLING just looking at this?! 🤤

VEGAN RASPBERRY DOUBLE CHOC FUDGE BROWNIES 🍫🌹 In the spirit of valentines day, i’ve decided to whip up these ULTRA FUDGY protein brownie to share the love with the staff members at my placement using the ingredient parcel sent to me by @channel7queensland @mykitchenrules ✨❤️ Now, please note that these ARE NOT the “healthiest” vegan brownies in the world, but I did sneak in some @macr0mike protein for extra protein to slightly balance out the sugar spike 😜 life is too short to always be eating super clean ehehe - regardless, they sure are freaking delicious & great for sharing (with non-vegans especially) , so I hope you try it! ☺️ Here is the recipe —> VEGAN RASPBERRY DOUBLE CHOC FUDGE BROWNIES

1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 scoop vegan choc protein powder (I used @macromike nutella )
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 cup coconut sugar (can try substituting sweetener if you want to reduce sugar)

1/4 cup raspberries
1/4 cup dark choc, chopped
METHOD:
1. Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius/ 320 degrees fahrenheit. Line a square baking tin with non-stick paper

4. Add in the flax eggs and the other wet ingredients. Fold gently with a spatula until just combined.
5. Gently stir through the raspberries & dark choc
6. Transfer the brownie batter into the prepared tin
7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is firm & a knife inserted comes out just a little bit dirty (we like to fudgyyyy)
8. Allow the brownie to cool before cutting! it will firm up a little as it cools

Getting our dose of @acaiflow_ topped with baked and raw treats @tuckshop_time 😍 everything about this screams good vibes ✨
FYI, @acaiflow_ is basically acai softserve - it tastes super pure and unlike traditional acai bowls, has no banana or other frozen fruits blended into it!

VEGAN PROTEIN PUMPKIN CHEESCAKE 🎃🍰 This treat is sooo creamy, GF, RSF & oil-free too! The base is made using a SECRET ingredient to make it even healthier! Can anyone guess what it is?? 😉
.... Yep, it’s CAULIFLOWER!! Usually the base of raw treats are made from nuts & dates and other energy-dense ingredients, and I’ve been having fun playing with alternatives to make more macro-friendly desserts ✨ (not that I usually track it, but i know some of you guys do & I want you to be able to enjoy the sweet things in life too! ) 😋
Just a tip, I made this using freshly steamed pumpkin, so if you use canned pumpkin, I can’t guarantee the same taste! Anyways, here is the recipe —> VEGAN PROTEIN PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE (GF, RSF, oil-free)
MAKES: 6 (per slice: Cal: 200, P: 11g, F: 11g, C: 17g)
INGREDIENTS:
BASE & TOPPING
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup cauliflower (can be replaced with oats or nuts)
1/2 cup dates, pitted & soaked
1 scoop (40g) vegan caramel protein powder (I used @macr0mike snickerdoodle )
3-4 Tbs water
CHEESECAKE FILLING:
1 cup (150g) pumpkin, cooked
1/4 cup cashew butter ( i used @nutsaboutlifeaustralia)
1/4 cup light coconut cream
1/2 scoop (20g) vegan caramel protein
3 Tbs maple syrup (can sub for liquid sweetener)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp superfood powder ( I used @unicornsuperfoods tropicana blend )

METHOD:
1. Line a small square container with non-stick paper (mine was ~ 15 x 15 cm)
2. BASE: In a food processor, add in the almonds & cauliflower, process until fine crumbs. Add in the remaining ingredients until the mixture clumps together. Use 3/4 of the mixture as the base by pressing it evenly into the lined contained. Set 1/4 of the mixture for the topping.
3. FILLING: in a food processor, blend together all the filling ingredients until smooth. Adjust to taste - you can make it more for less sweet deepening on your preference. Pour the filling over the base & freeze for 30 mins.
4. TOPPING: After 30 mins, pull the slice out the freezer & sprinkle the reserved base ingredients over the top as a crumble. Put the slice back into the freezer to allow it to full set for at least an hour before serving

Hope you guys give it a go! ❤️❤️

Dreaming about my weekend ACAI BOWL fix already... 😍✨ On the topic of Acai, lets talk about something that’s really important!! —> So you guys would know by now that I freaking LOVE Acai bowls and that I would literally have it everyday if I could (especially when it’s as good as the ones @lovejuice_manly 😉) However, I often get people tell me that they are calorie-dense, full of sugar and aren’t healthy and that I shouldn’t be eating it so often, but I think that instead of focusing on the negatives and banning ourselves from eating it, we should focus more on the POSITIVES in understanding what they can provide for our body! ☺️ Here are 6 nutritional benefits of this @amazoniaco LAMINGTON ACAI BOWL that I had from @lovejuice_manly :

1️⃣ The Acai, berries and cacao powder are PACKED with anti-aging, cancer-preventing antioxidants
2️⃣ There is a scoop of vegan protein powder for valuable plant protein to fuel my muscles
3️⃣ There is a scoop of coconut yogurt on top for healthy fats that will keep me satiated for longer
4️⃣ Although this bowl is high in sugars & carbs, the bulk of this bowl is made form whole fruits fruit, which will provide me with fibre-rich, vitamin-loaded, easily- digestible carbs to fuel my day
5️⃣ The choc buckinis (activates buckwheat groats) on top make a gluten-free granola, and contain fibre, manganese, magnesium, zinc & folate!
6️⃣ IT TASTES AMAZINGGG!! - best happy food! Mental happiness is key to physical health too so never neglect it!
I hope this helps and can make you view these gorgeous delicious smoothie bowls in a more positive light ✨❤️ Who agrees?!
