Vegan Chocolate at Woolworths Supermarket Australia


 Last night the girls and I said to Jerome "We feel like chocolate"! And we literally had a mind-blank on what we could buy from the supermarket SOOOOO here is a list of the current vegan chocolate available in the health-food section and the confectionary aisle at Woolworths. If these don't tickle your taste-buds, then head over to our groceries pages and find some vegan hot chocolate, lollies or ice-cream to nip that craving in the bud! 

Comment to add anything we haven't listed. 

Enjoy your chocolate heaven!

The BEST Chocolate Peanut Butter Acai Bowl Recipe WITHOUT Acai!


 

We are completely obsessed with acai bowls... and probably buy TOO many per week. The cost seriously adds up which is unnecessary when you can make them so easily yourself. We have been trying to perfect this for months and i seriously believe this is the BEST balance of sweetness and yumminess. The great thing about it is that you can just use blueberries instead of buying pure acai which can be hard to get and a bit costly. Have a go at this recipe, taste it, adjust as needed and top with your favourite bits and pieces. Enjoy!


Makes 2 small bowls or one BIG bowl

Recipe:
1 1/2 cups ripe banana slices
1/2 cup blueberries
6 dates
1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter
3 teaspoons cacao or cocoa
3/4 cup cold water
dash vanilla extract (optional)

Garnishes (fresh fruit, coconut, granola, cacao nibs etc...)

Instructions:
  1. Put everything into a high-speed blender and blend! Use a tamper if needed.
  2. Pour into two bowls (or one big bowl).
  3. Garnish with your favourite fresh fruits, granola, cacao nibs and coconut.

Tips:
  • Raw options - Use raw peanut butter and cacao. You can get raw PB from local health food stores OR just blend up raw peanuts in a vitamix or high-speed blender and make your own.
  • If you don't want your bowl too sweet, just add less dates.
  • Frozen bananas seriously make this so much better. You can use normal bananas but it won't be as smooth, icy and yummy.
  • Make sure your bananas are RIPE before freezing. This makes sure they are sweet and super delicious.
  • Peanut options - any nut butter is fine or omit altogether.
