Ingredients

Method

  • Dressing
  • ¼ cup Niulife Naked Coconut Aminos
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup Niulife Coconut Cider Vinegar
  • ¼ cup hemp seed oil (or avocado oil or olive oil)
  • Salad
  • 2 cucumbers, chopped

  • 3 spring onions, green part only, finely sliced

  • 1 tsp Niulife Coconut Oil
  • 6 heads bok choy, sliced & washed
  • 1 tbsp Niulife Naked Coconut Aminos
  1. Prepare the dressing by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl or jar and whisking continuously until you get a smooth homogeneous mixture. It may seem like it’s not coming together but it will.
  2. Place the cucumbers, carrot, sesame seeds, coriander and spring onion in a large bowl. Pour in half the dressing and toss to coat. Set aside.
  3. Heat a skillet over a high heat and add the coconut oil. Add in the bok choy and stir-fry for about 30 secs. Pour over the coconut aminos and continue to stir-fry for another 30-60 secs. Serve the bok choy on a large platter.
  4. Spoon over the tossed salad mixture and drizzle over some extra dressing. Top with extra sesame seeds to serve.

Coconut Mango Cheesecake

Niulife Cheesecake

Recipe / Liv Kaplan for Niulife

Serves: 2

DF, GF, VG

Ingredients

Method

  • Base
  • 1½ cups almond meal
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup Niulife Desiccated Coconut
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup Niulife Coconut Oil, softened
  • 3 tbsp hot water
  • Filling
  • 3 cups cashews, soaked for 4-6 hours, drained & rinsed
  • ¼ cup Niulife Coconut Milk Powder
  • 250mL water
  • 30 drops liquid stevia
  • ⅓ cup Niulife Coconut Oil, melted
  • Juice 2 lemons
  • 2 vanilla beans, seeds scraped
  • Topping
  • 2 cups mango chunks, frozen
  • 2 tbsp white chia seeds

  • Toasted coconut flakes (optional)
  1. Line a 20cm round spring-form cake tin with baking paper, using one round for the base and a long strip to line the sides of the tin. Stick down with a little coconut oil if needed.
  2. Prepare the base by combining the almond meal, coconut flour, desiccated coconut and salt. Pour in the coconut oil and water and press with your hands to form a clumpy dough. Press into the lined cake tin and smooth over with a spoon. Place in the fridge or freezer for 30 mins while you prepare the filling.
  3. To prepare the filling, place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until extra-smooth. Pour into the tin and smooth over with a spoon. Tap on the bench a couple of times to remove any air bubbles and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight to set completely.
  4. To make the mango topping, place the frozen mango and a dash of water in a small pot over a medium heat. Bring to a simmer then reduce the heat to low and leave to cook for 15 mins until the mango is soft. Remove from the heat and stir in the chia seeds, allowing them to soak up any extra liquid. Transfer everything to the blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a jar and leave to cool completely before storing in the fridge for serving.
  5. When the cheesecake is set, carefully remove from the tin and peel off the baking paper. Top with the mango topping and some toasted coconut flakes if desired.
