Glutenfree veggie pizza

Full of flavor!

Are you ready to take pizza to a different level? I challenged myself by making it gluten-free and testing out new food combos together. I love the sight of it, so colorful that it immediately gives you good vibes right? So you just gotta be open to it, but I promise, one thing for sure is that it’s full of flavors! Aaaand it’s healthier, so cheers to that!

Ingredients

Pizza dough gluten-free

• 400 grams dark gluten-free baking mix from http://www.helios.no

• 3,5 dl lukewarm water

• 25 gram dried yeast

• 1/2 tsp salt

Toppings

• Red pesto from http://www.helios.no

• Créme frâiche (plant based or dairy)

• Butternut squash

• Beetroot

• Artichokes

• Green olives

• Pine nuts

Instructions

Pizza dough gluten-free

1. Mix together the gluten-free baking mix together with the dry yeast, salt and stir in the lukewarm water. See if you need more flour or liquid as you want to knead the dough by hand. Therefore, it cannot be so sticky or runny that it’s impossible for you to do that!

2. Let the dough rise beneath a plastic film roll for a about 1 hour.

3. Roll the dough and put it on a baking tray with parchment paper.

4. Let the dough rise for another 30 minutes before you add the creme fraiche base and put the pizza in the oven on 180 degrees for 20 minutes.

Toppings

1. Peel of the skin of the butternut squash and beetroot before you cut them in thin slices and drizzle some oil before being put in the oven on 200 degrees for about 25 minutes.

2. Then when the pizza and veggies are cooked ready, add your toppings on it. First you smear red pesto on the pizza base, then decorating with the oven baked butternut squash and beetroot, and let’s not forget the olives, artichokes and pine nuts on top too! A tip is to drizzle some honey or agave syrup as it harmonizes the flavors.

I hope you enjoy this vegan, dairyfree and glutenfree pizza and don’t worry, you can easily make it vegetarian with some cheese added as that makes completely sense too, hehe. What I only hope is that you will feel inspired to eat a healthier version of a pizza with more vibrant colors and veggies on your plate!

Green defence smoothie

I promise it’s worth to make this one a try!

I know it’s hard to believe me when I say green smoothies can actually taste good, but that is the truth if you make this one. Usually we relate green smoothies being hard to swallow, that we only drink them because we must, since they are healthy. However, guess what! You will on the contrary enjoy this one as it has a citrus taste, yet sweet because of the banana and dates. Altogether it balances off the greens and the super foods; chlorella and spirulina which by itself I admit isn’t nice at all. Oh, and let’s not forget another star ingredient; the defence drink from Vitamin Well! It contains B12 which prevents you from fatigue and tiredness, and is flavored with elderflower. I came up with the idea that this drink must be a good fit to the greens and I was right about that after I tasted it.

That’s why I am so excited to share with you guys this recipe, as it will benefit you with better health and well being, but the bonus being that it’s tasting good for you to also enjoy it! Let this be a new, fresh start on how you relate to green smoothies and may this be the first of many for you to make!

Ingredients

• 1 banana

• 2 dates

• Half an avocado

• One handful of frozen mangoes

• 4 cubes of frozen spinach

• 1 tsp chlorella https://www.super-nature.no

• 1 tsp spirulina https://www.super-nature.no

• Half a bottle of defence from https://www.vitaminwell.com/nb/product/defence-2/

• 2 dl plant based milk

• A squeeze of lemon juice

Instructions

In a blender, mix all ingredients and blend until smooth.

Ps: if you want it less thick, add more liquid like orange juice or the defence drink. And if you want it lighter, change the ratio on plant based milk with less and more of the defence drink!

Enjoy your dairyfree, glutenfree and refined sugar free drink, which only promotes good health for you.

This smoothie yields for 2 portions so you can easily save up the rest for the day after (hurray for saving time and cleaning up the day after) or make the other portion of smoothie to your partner, friend or family member. Let them be a part of this prosperous and wealthy lifestyle!

A great way to start your day and boost your immune system

Healthy gluten-free scones

Gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and refined sugarfree

I would never have thought that these gluten-free and healthy scones could have turned out so good! Thanks to the gluten-free flour mix from helios, making that possible. One is not enough when they have nuts, raisins and dark chocolate in them. The dough is not dry at all, and they taste great with nutbutter, chocolate spread or berry jam! It’s the perfect recipe to bake on a relaxing Sunday, and the time baking them won’t take you long. Can’t resist them can you? Let’s bake em!

Ingredients

• 550 g gluten-free mix from https://www.helios.no/produkter/glutenfritt/helios-lys-bakemiks/

• 2 dl lukewarm water

• 3 dl almond/oat milk or Andy other plant based milk you prefer

• 1 tsp baking powder

• 4 tbsp olive oil

• 2 to 4 tbsp coconut sugar (the scones I baked, I used 2 tbsp, but if you prefer them sweeter, add more to your liking.)

• 1 tsp salt

• Add chopped walnuts and hazelnuts, dark chocolate chips and raisins. You decide the quantity! Ps: I did one dough with nuts and raisins, while the other one with dark chocolate chips added.

Instructions

1. First add all your dry ingredients in a bowl.

2. Then add the milk, water and oil, stir well. Afterwards knead the dough by hand and if too sticky to begin with, use a spoon or spatula.

3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap or kitchen towel for about 30 minutes. Don’t worry if it hasn’t risen, cause mine didn’t hehe.

4. Now you can add your chopped nuts, raisins and chocolate chips, at this stage it is easier to knead the dough. Shape it into two round pieces and cut almost through to 4 new pieces.

5. Bake in the oven on 220 degrees for 15 minutes. Make sure to watch over the baking time as it depends on the oven and size.

Happy baking everyone and hope you enjoy these guilt free, healthy scones!

Matcha yoghurt Breakfastbowl

Far from boring guys

It’s so easy to put flavor into your natural yoghurt. And my favorite these days is matcha. I use the superfood powder “power matcha” from https://www.yoursuperfoods.eu/products/organic-power-matcha-mix. This mix is all natural and organic, a nutrient-dense blend of greens and brain boosting superfoods to optimize your focus! It’s an excellent source of antioxidants and is high in vitamins, iron and potassium. Instead of swearing to your coffee with caffein in the morning, give it a try with this breakfast bowl instead which even contains a serving of your daily greens! Far from boring guys. And with only health advantages to offer you.

How to make it

1. You’ll need Greek or dairy free yoghurt version like coconut. Mix it with 1 tsp of matcha and blend well together.

2. Add your favorite toppings with it. I used raw honey to sweeten it up, cashew nuts, cacao nibs, hemp seeds, flax meal and blueberries!

Enjoy your wholesome breakfast bowl, with a tasty, healthy, nutritious and interesting yoghurt to kick start your day!
