blueberry mousse boost

Foodboost Recipes Page

 

If your mornings are busy, then breakfast mousse is perfect for you.

You can make it the night before, grab it in the morning and run.

We use black tahini in this recipe because it is a protein-rich paste made from sesame seeds that promote bone, skin, brain and heart health.

ingredients

1 tablespoon of organic black tahini.

1 teaspoon of immune+ powder.

3 measured tablespoons of chia seeds.

1 teaspoon of pure maple syrup.

1⁄2 a cup of coconut yoghurt.

1⁄2 a cup of organic almond, coconut or soy milk.

1 cup of fresh or frozen organic blueberries.

directions

Make this recipe the night before, ready for breakfast the following day.

If you are using frozen berries, defrost them.

Blitz all the ingredients but only half the berries in your blender.

You can also add a capsule of friendly bacteria to give your gut an extra boost of goodness.

Divide into two mason jars and press the rest of the blueberries into each mousse.

Seal the jars and refrigerate overnight.

Serve with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and a sprinkle of organic chopped walnuts or organic granola.

notes

Immune+ supports your immune system.

Plant-based milks are a good source of vitamins, minerals and protein.

Berries boost antioxidants, anti-ageing protection, hair skin and nail health, and support your immune system.

Raw walnuts are a good source of omega-3’s for brain health and promote gut health.

Sesame seeds are rich in minerals, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants that protect your immune system, liver and kidneys from free radical damage and disease. They are also known for easing inflammation and pain related to arthritis and have a positive impact on cholesterol levels.

Tahini is also high in B vitamins, which play an essential role in converting nutrients into energy – PLUS – the phytoestrogens in tahini support female hormone balance.

We use black tahini in this recipe because it is slightly sweeter, and has a higher level of calcium than white sesame seeds. However, both black and white sesame seeds are nutrient-rich and beneficial.

If you have tree nut allergies, you may also be allergic to sesame seeds. Check with your health practitioner before trying tahini.

The unique gelling action of chia seeds keeps you feeling full and helps balance your blood sugar. The combination of soluble and insoluble fibre slows down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars and reduces sugar cravings.
