Raw chocolate with matcha and raspberry

 As you have probably noticed I absolutely LOVE raspberries, matcha and raw chocolate and I have made so many recipes with each of them already, so I think it is about time that I finally combined the three into one delicious recipe!

Raw chocolate mousse with a hint of mint

Homemade chocolate mousse is one of my go-to desserts when I feel the chocolate cravings kicking in, but I don’t want to make something that is too time-consuming.

Creamy dessert bowls with hazelnut, chocolate and banana

Two recipes in one day? Yeah I am definitely going a little overboard here, but because I did not blog yesterday as planned (I took the day off and had sushi, lots of kitty cuddles and crazy amounts of candy with one of my best friends instead, haha oopsie!), then I though I would post both recipes today instead. I am really trying to stick with my little blog-schedule these days, I know have neglected the blog quite a bit with...

Three layer no-bake cake – brownie, vanilla cheesecake and chocolate chip cookie dough

I have been so excited to share this cake with you guys! It is inspired by a gorgeous cake that my friend Kamilla made, which she based on this recipe by the talented Copenhagen Cakes. The cake she served was beyond delicious, seriously I could eat that cake everyday, but it was also a traditional cake full of sugar, butter, flour etc, which there is absolutely nothing wrong with (seriously it’s so yum!), but I just had to try and make a healthified version...

Homemade healthified “nutella” chocolate spread

As I have shared before, Nutella is one of my absolute favorite things to indulge in, especially when eaten straight out the jar with a spoon ;) Sadly it isn’t exactly the healthiest thing to eat (to put it mildly), so it isn’t something I do very often – until now that is! With this homemade healthified version of Nutella I can indulge a little more often and without all the added nasties and weird ingredients! I absolutely love this healthified...

Messy dessert parfait with chocolate chia pudding, peanut butter and caramelized banana

This super messy dessert parfait is definitely not the most photogenic dessert I have ever made, but it was too good not to share! It is so rich and indulgent in it’s flavours that it is hard to believe that it is made with all healthy ingredients! The portion size is going to be quite small (the recipe yields two small servings, but in the photo is shown both served in one jar), but this is a quite “heavy” and rich...

Healthified chocolate chip cookies

As you know I am not very fond of baking, I don’t really know why, but I have just never been very into it, which is why most of my desserts are raw or non-bake. However, every now and then I crave the more traditional baked desserts and I make sure to always create recipes that are easy and no fuss + that doesn’t make too much of a mess or leave too many dishes to be done. So when...

Chocolate covered coconut bites

I have been wanting to make these little chocolate covered coconut bites for a while now and I kept seeing so many different variations of these everywhere, so I thought it was about time that I finally gave them a try. They taste a bit like bounty bars, only a lot healthier of course, but also a lot messier – haha my entire kitchen is pretty much covered in chocolate right now, I seriously cannot make anything without leaving my kitchen a...

Raw apple nachos

This messy treat is a new favorite of mine, I love the mix of the fresh crisp apples and the more indulgent and heavy chocolate and caramel sauce, such a perfect combo! The best part is that it is actually all healthy – in moderation of course – and completely raw! I know I am yet again abusing food terminology a bit with this one, but “apple nachos” is what I have seen variations of this snack called everywhere else, so...

Chocolate hazelnut “nutella” balls

I made these chocolate hazelnut balls the other day and had my friend Laura taste test them, they were definitely approved – she was sure I had added a lot of nutella, which in our opinion is always a good thing ;) However, these little dessert balls are actually all healthy and contain only unprocessed ingredients, which means I’ve been snacking on them non-stop all day, haha it’s all good when they’re healthy right?! Ingredients: 1 cup hazelnuts 1/3 cup...

Chocolate chia pudding

I want to share a dessert that is not only super fast and easy to make, but is also healthy and fairly low in calories as well. This chocolate chia pudding only takes a couple of minutes to put together and it is full of two of my favourite superfoods – chia seeds and cacao.

Pink Wednesday // An instant mood booster

It has been one of those days. One of those days where you feel sad, tired and wornout. It has been dark and gloomy all day, I did not get much sleep last night and I have had the most horrible headache all day. Not even my newfound Christmas cheer have been able to brighten my mood today, so I have turned to my go-to’s for an instant mood boost – chocolate, tv-series and a little bit of online window-shopping. Whenever...

Copenhagen Food // Acacai vegan and gluten-free cafe

I have been wanting to pay Acacia a visit ever since I first hear about the place, but it was not until I started seeing it repeatedly over on Cathrine’s blog and social media that I just knew I had to give the place a try as soon as possible. Last week I finally got a chance to visit Acacia and I was so impressed that I just have to write a little review and recommendation for you guys. Let me start with...

Homemade healthified Nutella

If there is one thing I have always LOVED to indulge in then it is Nutella!! It is sinfully delicious and you can pretty much add it to everything or just eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon..ahem not that it is something I have ever done ;) However, it is sadly not exactly the healthiest thing to eat, so I have experimented with making my own healthified version and guysss (!!!) it turned out soo good! :D...

Healthy Halloween treats: Mini candy apples, toothy monster snappers & spiders on a log

It is finally here, my very first Halloween recipe post! I know I have previously shared links to other foodbloggers’ Halloween recipes, but I have never actually posted any myself, which is actually kinda strange since I am completely obsessed with Halloween and anything magical or supernatural. This year I am planning on sharing several Halloween recipes though and I have actually already made most of them (some of you might have caught some sneak peeks over on my snapchat: mokai_giraf), eek I am...

No-bake brownies with peanut butter and pecans

When I first started this blog I absolutely hated peanut butter, I did not understand peoples obsession with it at all and I honestly found it downright repulsing. Haha yeah a lot has definitely changed since then! It all started with me finally trying proper peanut butter, you know the kind where there is only added peanuts and a bit of salt. The other peanut butters I had tried were full of nasties and probably only had very little actual peanuts in...

Toast party

These yummy and colorful pieces of toast got so much attention when I posted a photo over on my snapchat (mokai_giraf) earlier this week that I thought I better share the details with you guys – haha I have never seen so many screenshots before!!

My LA food guide

After spending two whole months (October and November) in Los Angeles last year I got quite familiar with a lot of amazing places to eat and as promised I finally have my post with recommendations ready for you! I have to say that there are sooo many amazing places we didn’t try (I already have such a long list for our next visit) and we tried so many meh (as in not in any way share worthy) places as well. We didn’t...

Quick and healthy tropical breakfast

Hi lovelies, I hope you are doing great and that your year is off to a great start ❤️ Personally I am struggling a bit with getting back into a proper routine, I have been eating too much unhealthy food and treats, I haven’t been working out and my sleep pattern is so messed up!

Healthified granola bars

Some of the most popular recipes on the blog are for treats and snacks and while I have been sharing quite a few recipes for treats and desserts lately, then I just discovered that it has been ages since I have posted a proper snack recipe, so I think it is about time I change that! I experimented with these healthified granola bars before leaving for LA and I absolutely love how they turned out – they’re so much healthier than those store bought granola...

The best (naughty) brownies with cream cheese // Enjoying life

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Valio – lactose-free dairy products.  As you all know I try to eat healthy most of the time, but also believe that it is important to not be too strict and allow yourself to enjoy some of the less (or not at all) healthy treats every now and then as well. I rarely post those unhealthy treats on here, since my favourite indulgences are candy or chocolate and not homemade baked goods and such...

My go-to “snack attack” bliss balls – only 4 ingredients

These super simple bliss balls are one of my favorite go-to snacks, they are so quick and easy to make and you only need 4 ingredients, all of which are a staple in my kitchen, so I always have the ingredients to make these. I love to experiment with all kinds of superfoods and fancy ingredients, but sometimes I just want something nice and simple that I know will taste amazing and doesn’t take much time to make (plus these also...

Neapolitan ice cream smoothie

This three layered beauty is my take on a healthified and nourishing version of the neapolitan ice-cream. It might be a healthy version, but I promise you that it is still incredibly delicious and is such a great alternative to your regular ice-cream if you want to keep it healthy – haha sometimes you just need the real deal though ;) If you use frozen bananas and strawberries + only add very little milk then you get a thicker nice cream...

Peanut butter granola

I have recently discovered that I actually like peanut butter after years and years of avoiding it like the plague. The first time I tasted peanut butter it was one of those cheap junk versions with lots of added nasties (and probably not too many peanuts) and I just hated the flavor and texture, it felt like it was growing in my mouth. I still remember the experience and flavor all too well and so I didn’t eat it again for years....

Caramel date paste

Christmas is getting so close and I am super excited! I cannot wait to spend time with my family and celebrate christmas with lots of good food and gifts – I am pretty much like a 5 year old when it comes to christmas presents, haha I just can’t help it! I absolutely love both giving and receiving presents! :D What I love even more about christmas is all the good food, I am such a foodie and there is nothing better than...

Healthified no-bake brownie bites

I have been so excited to share this brownie recipe with you as it is one of my new favorite desserts! These brownie bites are completely nut-free, dairy-free + they contain no flour or refined sugar either! :D I think it will be my new go-to dessert when having people over, since it taste so indulgent that no one will know that it is actually a healthified version of brownies, which perfect if your friends or family aren’t quite onboard with raw and...

Light and summery dessert bowls

I originally made these little summery bowls for breakfast a while back, but I have since been serving them as a light and healthy alternative to dessert, which has been perfect in the heatwave since I have not been craving anything too heavy. Tropical dessert bowl: Skyr/greek yoghurt Banana, sliced Pineapple, chopped Raw coconut chips Muesli – I used a honey toasted one for a little extra sweetness Optional – a little honey or agave to mix with the skyr/greek yoghurt Chocolate/hazelnut/strawberry...

Healthy lunch box ideas pt. 2

The first post in this series of healthy lunch box ideas were one of the most popular on the blog (you can find it here!), so I thought it was about time to bring you part two as promised! I only rarely bring lunch with me, but when I do I prefer to make it the night before to save time – this lunch is perfect for that as you can easily make the salad the night before (I would recommend adding...

Berry’licious summer parfait

Berry season is finally here! It is my favorite time of the year and even though I live in the city without a garden I’m fortunate to have a family with a garden full of berries! I am visiting my parents at the moment and I’ve already picked insane amounts of berries – haha it feels so strange to get them for free and in almost infinite amounts when I’m used to paying a fortune for a tiny box in the supermarket!...

The best kind of mornings

My little sister came to stay with me for a couple of days in the beginning of last week, so on tuesday I decided to skip class, sleep in and make a nice breakfast for us to eat under snuggly blankets while watching our favorite TV shows. I made chocolate pancakes, strawberry/banana/vanilla smoothies and a fruit platter. I love lazy mornings like that < 3 Pancakes: I used the same pancake recipe that I already posted here (click) and then just...
