Laurie has put together a few recipes for us packed full of hearty and healthy skate fuel that you can take with you on the go.


Choco-Cherry Breakfast Smoothie
(Serves 1)  1 Cup Frozen Cherries

1/4cup Cacao Nibs

1 tbsp Raw Cacoa Powder 

2 Medjool Dates (soaked for a few mins in hot water is ideal)

1 Small Banana

Add milk until desired consistency is achieved.
Add ingredients to blender and blend on high. This is a super tasty and incredibly quick smoothie for those people who tend to rush out of the door without breakfast!

Sweet-Sweet Potato Soup with Pine Nuts (Serves 1) 1 x Sweet Potato, Chopped 

1 x Apple

Vegetable stock cube

Pine nuts

1/2 tsp Turmuric, 

1/2 tsp Cumin, 

1/2 tsp Ground Coriander seed, 

Pinch Chilli Flakes, 

Pinch Sea Salt

Plain Coconut Collaborative yoghurt, or sour cream works too!
Boil sweet potato and apple with vegetable stock cube until soft. 

Place in blender with herbs and spices and blend.

Pour into bowl and stir in a heaped tbsp of yoghurt.

Top with pine nuts.
This dish can be made even more filling (or serve more people!) if you add some rice. Cook 1 cup of rice while the sweet potato & apple are boiling and serve when fluffy.

Sausage ‘Meatballs’ with Courgette ‘Noodles (Serves 1)
2 x Sausages

2 x Courgette

3 x Large tomatoes

1 x Onion

1 x Clove Garlic

Small handful peas (optional)

1 tbsp Tomato Puree

1 tsp Coconut Oil

Pinch Sea Salt

Coriander and Chilli to taste
Cook sausages in your preferred way (grill, fry etc)

Chop tomatoes, tomato puree, onion & garlic and add them to a pan with the teaspoon of coconut oil. Cook until soft, remove from heat and blend on a low setting for 10 seconds.

While the tomato sauce is cooking, create your courgette ‘noodles’ by grating them lengthways or using a spiralizer & place them in a pan of boiling water for approximately 1 minute. You can also add the garden peas at this time too, if you want to.

Chop sausages in to small ‘meatballs’ and add sauce and courgette noodles. 

This is a great dish to take with you on the go…just don’t forget your fork! 🙂
