Good Food Friday – School Nutrition Warm Winter Porridge

This ever so delish and healthy recipe is one from the lovely Chelsea Motlik, founder of School Nutrition.

Chelsea has been practising as a qualified Nutritionist for 6 years, with an additional 4 years in the health and fitness industry. Over her time she has been heightened to the lack of education that we have as a community around nutrition, and how many different diets the average person has been on. Research has repeatedly shown that education about nutrition combined with accessibility to healthy food has been the only intervention with long-term results on a person’s health and diet. For this reason Chelsea has developed an education program for Children that is inline with the national curriculum. Her aim; to provide children the best chance of understanding food from the very beginning, eliminating confusion we as adults have now. Her big time goal is for this curriculum to be accessible to all children in Australia and beyond. Chelsea also offers an education program for adults in the same vein, in understanding how you can have your ideal body weight and stay there without any FAD dieting!

This is one recipe I couldn’t not share. OH MY TASTEBUDS! I know you are going to love it.

This is a creation from the lovely Crystal over at To Wellness & Beyond, to check out the original recipe post you can here.

 

Base:
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup cacao
1 tbsp mesquite powder
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. bee pollen (optional)
1 tbsp. manuka honey
2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted or soft

Filling:
400 ml coconut cream (1 can)*
1 cup cashews, soaked in water overnight drained
1 tbsp. manuka honey
1/4 cup cacao
1/2 tbsp. cinnamon

Blueberry Cream (top layer)
1/4 cup cashew, soaked in water overnight, drained
1/2 cup coconut cream
1/4 tsp. vanilla bean powder
1 tsp. manuka honey
1/4 cup blueberries
• Make sure to find a good brand of Coconut Cream that doesn’t contain anything other than Coconut – I use OnRich Organic Coconut Cream
METHOD:

Base:
Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until mixture resembles crumbs, and will easily stick together when formed into a ball. If mixture is a little dry add a little more coconut oil.
Firmly press mixture into the base of an 18cm loose base cake tin until smooth and even. Chill in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes before adding the filling.

Filling:
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender (such as a Vitamix) and blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into cake tin on top of base and chill in the fridge overnight, or until firm (around 4 hours)
Blueberry Cream (top layer):
Place all ingredients, except the blueberries, into a high speed blender (such as a Vitamix) and blend on high speed until smooth. Add the blueberries and blend for around 20-30 seconds. Pour onto the filling and chill back in fridge until firm (around 1-2 hours).
Garnish with blueberries if desired, and have an awesome time eating your cake!
