New Video – Coffee Bean Halva

I have a new YouTube channel up, so check it out here for inspiration on the latest freaky superfoods.

Just hit the subscribe button, and if you’ve got any comments or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you. Maybe you have a recipe you want me to do, like coconut milk yoghurt? (coming soon!) Or kickass energy drinks? Ooh g’wan, tell me!

Here’s my latest video, making coffee bean halva.

So, erm, coffee is not a superfood.

But so many of you dig it!

As requested, here’s a way to get your fix AND sneak in a dose of some stealthy B-vitamins. B is for Battery, Brain, Beauty, Booty …

    Hi SJ!  This looks great! I’d love any recipe suggestions for an ultimately ultra nutritious super skin smoothie please! Something healing that could be drunk most days and would also help us to get some of our daily veg in too. I’m about to experiment with coconut water, avocado, kale, blueberries, almonds etc but if you’ve anything up you’re sleeve that tastes great that would be fab! Very excited about making coconut yoghurt as it’s really hard to get in shops in Sheffield! Have also been dreaming of a healthier version of coconut ice (cocunut, sugar, condensed milk I think) which my mum used to make when I was little…and any goats kefir suggestions. Apologies for the long list…thought I’d grab the opportunity! Oh, and a pizza base too. Ok, I’m defintely going now…

      Yep – all recipes are printed underneath the video on YouTube or Vimeo 😉 Hope this helps!

    I love the look of the recipe, but I\’ve tried twice now and each time the mixture has \’split\’. Any tips on how to avoid this or what I may be doing wrong?

      Hi Shelley. Yes – the mixture isn’t warm enough! Glad you asked. It happens in cold kitchens where the ingredients a little colder than average. Does that sound familiar? Keep the date syrup on the heat, and add the remaining ingredients, still on the heat in this case. Pour immediately, and that should make an unreasonably smooth and perfect halva! Good luck!

    Hi Susan Jane!

    Do you think this recipe would work with rice malt syrup for a lower fructose treat since date syrup is so high in fructose? Thanks, Dee 🙂
