Kale Pineapple Juice

    Kale Pineapple Juice

    Juicing is a great way to work more of those nutritional overachievers known as greens into your diet. Pineapple provides just the right amount of sweetness, while ginger gives each sip a little bite. For most juicers, it is not necessary to remove the skin of the pineapple, as it will just be turned into pulp.

    • 2 cups (500 mL) broccoli florets

    Mandarin Orange Chocolate Almond Cake

    Mandarin Orange Chocolate Almond Cake

    The combination of warm chocolate and the coveted mandarin orange makes this a holiday classic perfect for an intimate dinner party. Almond flour along with hemp hearts deliver healthy fats and protein and keep the cake gluten free and moist, removing the need for any additional oil or butter in the batter. A tiny drizzle of olive oil poured over the mandarin-encrusted top and a pinch of salt bring out the sweet flavour of the mandarins. Mandarin top Zest mandarins and reserve 1 Tbsp (15 mL) zest for use in the recipe. Set mandarins aside, leaving them unpeeled. When cake is baked, trim mandarins by slicing off top and bottom to form a flat edge. Then placing mandarin on the edge with peel, slice into 3 equal wheels. Repeat for each mandarin. Now, gently remove peel, being careful to keep wheels intact, and arrange on top of the cake, filling in holes with smaller sections trimmed from a wheel.
