(With amaretto ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿคซ) Weโ€™re back home after our mini-tour of London (and what a great time we had!) and we are now putting all our focus and energy into making the remaining 11 months of 2019 just as incredible as the first - Whiiiiiilst also turning chestnuts into cake.๐Ÿ˜‹
โ€”โ€”
Chestnuts and cakes are both seriously yummy, so we combined the two. The texture of a roasted chestnut is so unique - and once cooked further in hot almond milk they soften and can be purรฉed into a kind of thick creamy batter. We then added:
โ€ข One handful of ground almond
โ€ข 125g  coco sugar โ€ข two #flaxeggs โ€ข 1/2 tspn baking powder โ€ข 1/2 tspn bicarb โ€ข one shot of #amaretto โ€ข pinch of vanilla โ€”โ€”
Top it with sliced banana and bake for 25 and like magic you have an amazingly fudgey, rich, truly delectable cake. Which is:
โœ… 100% dairy free ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
โœ… 100% grain free ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
โœ… 100% flipping yum ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ โ€”โ€”
Now back to the planning for 2019 ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ โ€”โ€”

  • ๐ŸŒฑ Today we reveal the recipe for the ๐Ÿƒ Wild Botanical Elixir ๐ŸŒฟ we've concocted ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ for the "Into the Woods Forest Feast" ๐Ÿ› we've put together last week for @mccannlondon ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ
.
We wanted to create a drink that was ๐ŸŒณ foresty, earthy and 'green' tasting in an enchanting way. We wanted it to be bold enough to have a bit of a kick, and we wanted to use ๐Ÿฆ  live cultures, superfoods and nootropics to add next level super powers. ๐Ÿ
.
60 ml Stryyk Not Vodka
.
15 ml William Fox Oak Moss Syrup
.
15 ml Maple Syrup
.
5 ml Ginger Juice
.
60 ml Real Kombucha Dry Dragon
.
1/4 tsp Matcha powder
.
1/8 tsp Rhodiola Rosea Root powder
.
1 Kaffir Lime Leaf
.
Mix everything, except for the Kombucha, in a shaker.
.
Put an ice cube in a tumbler + pour the mix on it.
.
Fill up with Dry Dragon Kombucha.
.
Decorate with a branch of sage and a rye straw.
.
Makes 1 delectable drink, thatโ€™s actually good for you. Cheers! ๐Ÿน
. 
Have you not heard of Rhodiola before? It's a root that's been used since forever in โ„๏ธ Scandinavia and Siberia โ„๏ธ as an adaptogen to relieve stress, fatigue and depression as well as to promote endurance. Amazing stuff! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟ

Whilst in London, we celebrated #Veganuary together with @mccannlondon by creating an โ€˜Into the Woodsโ€™ ๐Ÿœ themed vegan feast for their amazing team!
.
We delivered by turning their meeting room table literally into a forest floor ๐ŸŒ paired with an all natural, organic, earthy, wild & botanical themed menu. ๐ŸŒณ

#dryjanuary was also at the party so @Stryyk  threw in a couple of bottles of their unbelievable #zeroproof Not Vodka ( #icantbelieveitsnotvodka ) ๐Ÿธ for us to experiment with!

After lots of tastings and trials (yay for us!) we crafted a full power ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Wild Botanical Elixir, layering Kombucha, superfoods and #nootropics. Stay tuned for the recipe to follow soonโ€ฆ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ .

Giving huge ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ THANKS ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป to all the lovely people who made this project possible: ๐Ÿ’– Emma and ๐Ÿ’– Harriet of @mccannlondon and ๐Ÿ’– Liz from @inhouseworkout - and to the amazing ๐Ÿ’– @mccannlondon team who devoured everything with their mouths as well as with their eyes and were mega appreciative!

On a personal level itโ€™s also been very special: I previously worked in advertising ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ”ง in Amsterdam but left in 2005 to follow my heartโ€™s calling to Spain ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ to live a life aligned with my soulโ€™s highest purpose. ๐Ÿ•Š

Being back at a creative agency last week after so many years, I was hit with a huge surge of gratitude, as creating this magical event for McCann signified I had come full circle in the most glorious of ways. ๐Ÿ’ซ
Life truly is a magic trail if you follow the signs and listen to the whispers. ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ‡ .
