On Wednesday night we had our first RK Workshop at the Crowne Plaza, here on the Gold Coast, and it was a great success! The feedback we received after the event was great and I can confidently say that everybody had a good time, healthy food, entertainment, lots of laughs, nutrition education and loads of tips and recipes to do at home. I'm very happy and thankful for having a great team to work with and many people supporting my mission.
As I promised to you all that participated in the event that night, I would post the recipe of the dessert that I cooked on the night. I trust you all liked it, and I'm sure if you haven't tried it yet you won't regret. Coconut cream dessert, light, delicious and nutritious. What I most like about this recipe is that is:
1) No dairy, cream and butter
2) No gluten
3) No refined cane sugar
4) No starch
5) Low GI
6) Source of vitamins, minerals, MCTs and essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-9)
7) Fast and easy to prepare.
Enjoy the Coconut heaven and let me know what you think of it.
Thank you and I will be posting some more tips and ideas next week on next issue of RK newsletter. If you haven't sign in yet go to home page and click on FREE Detox juice's recipe ebook and subscribe to our magazine for free.
This is a must for coconut lovers. A chef friend of mine created this healthy, simple and delicious recipe based on a dessert called panacotta, which is unhealthy because it contains cream and sugar. This healthy alternative is delicious and I teach it in all of my cooking classes and everybody loves it.
Ingredients – serves 10
3 tin of coconut cream or milk – preferably organic
1 tin of water – use the empty can
1 teaspoon of natural vanilla extract
3 tablespoons of gelatin or agar agar
1/2 cup of honey or a natural sweetener to taste like stevia, coconut sugar, xylitol
2–4 tablespoons of chia seeds
Fresh fruit of your choice to serve with or my famous berry good sauce (see recipe on Ronaldo's kitchen cookbook page 103)
Using a medium saucepan add the coconut cream, water and vanilla and bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes to bring out the flavour.
Meanwhile dissolve the gelatin or agar agar in half a cup of hot water.
Add the natural sweetener, chia seeds and gelatin to the coconut mixture and turn the heat off and whisk well.
Pour into individual cups or dessert glasses and place in the fridge for an hour or more.
Serve with your choice of fresh fruit or berry good sauce (see recipe).
