HEALTHY SPREADS

Posted on

If you have gone to the effort to make some beautiful healthy breads you don’t want to ruin it by using the wrong spread.  Simple mashed avocado is perfect but here is a couple of spreads to make things interesting.healthy-spreads2

MACADAMIA AND COCONUT BUTTER

Take 1/2 cup unsalted macadamia nuts (preferably activated) and 1/4 cup flaked coconut.  Blitz with a pinch of sea salt in a food processor, scraping down the sides until a smooth butter is formed.

Store in the fridge and remove a few minutes before serving to soften.

 

BERRY CHIA JAMbread-with-nut-butter-and-jam2

Take 2 cups of mixed frozen berries, whichever you have available.  Place in a saucepan with 2 pieces of lime zest.  Bring to boil then reduce heat and simmer until berries have softened.

Place berries in a blender, remove zest and blitz until required consistency is achieved.  Pur into a glass jar and add 2 tablespoons of chia seeds.  Allow to cool and allow chia seeds to expand for about 2 hours until serving.

Store in fridge.
