RECIPE: Spooky Spirulina Smoothie

Inspiral Spirulina Smoothie Halloween

With a colour that’s bound to get you in the festive Halloween spirit, give our spooky spirulina smoothie recipe a try this October.

Superfoods are not only incredibly good for your health, but the phytonutrients they contain also work wonderfully as natural food colouring. The spirulina in this terrifying smoothie gives it it’s vibrant, ghoulish colour without the need to add in any other nasty ingredients.

When we checked the ingredients list of a popular brand of green food colouring we found that not only were glucose syrup and sugar the top two ingredients, but it also contained SIX different types of E numbers! Why not simply use nutrition instead of the chemical-laden alternative?

People also love spirulina for its high levels of chlorophyll, essential fatty acids and vast amounts of vitamins. Plus it’s full of essential amino acids that make this smoothie an amazing way to consume your plant based protein. The perfect replenishment for your Halloween party guests!

Go on, give your friends a fright this year by telling them their fruity smoothie is bursting with algae!

RECIPE: Tomato & Inca Berry Salsa

Inca berries have been revered by the tribes of the Amazon for centuries for as a highly nutritious food and as a medicine, hence one of their many nicknames, ‘golden berries.’ As well as being packed with protein, they are rich in vitamins A and C and provide a variety of B vitamins. Their seeds also have a mild laxative effect which promotes healthy digestion and prevents toxin build-up.

With many superfoods, it can be difficult to find a way to include them in your regular diet. This is why we have come up with this simple recipe for a salsa with a superfood kick. Perfect in wraps, salads or shared as a dip with friends.

Dairy-Free 101


As awareness about nutrition, environmental issues and animal welfare gains more momentum, so too does the number of people choosing to go dairy-free. This could be for ethical reasons, lactose intolerance or purely for their own health gains.
Either way, the evidence for dairy not being as good for us as we once thought it was is stacked up, and we might be starting to think about how we could reduce or completely eliminate it from our diets.
Numerous health benefits have been reported as a result of taking this leap. People have reported various skin conditions vanishing within weeks of cutting out dairy. Thousands of personal success stories have emerged from people who quit dairy and resolved a medley of mystery illnesses – from migraines to stuffy noses to an improvement in behavioural conditions such as ADHD.
It has been estimated that 70% of the world’s population suffers with some degree of lactose intolerance. Although symptoms can be mild enough to go undetected, they can cause a variety of problems with our digestion nonetheless.
Digestion is the stage at which all our nutrient absorption is done, and dairy has been noted to inhibit this process for many people. So less dairy actually has the indirect effect of you absorbing more nutrients from the rest of your food, which comes with a myriad of health benefits.
But even with all of this information, the act of actually cutting dairy out of your diet can seem difficult if not impossible given its huge presence in our daily diets. In this guide, inSpiral want to dispel the myth that a dairy-free diet is difficult, and help you on your way.

Kitchen Essentials:

Before you can get started, there are a few things you will need in your kitchen. Obviously we’re not going to list everything you could have (there’s so much), but here are a few things that you should stock to make your journey a little easier.

  1. A blender (probably the most important of all!)
  2. Coconut oil
  3. Avocado
  4. Tofu
  5. Nutritional yeast
  6. Raw nuts (cashews, macadamias, almonds, etc)
  7. Nut butter (whichever you prefer)
  8. Plant-based milk (almond, hemp, oat, etc)
  9. Agar agar flakes (for solid cheese substitutes)
  10. Coconut milk (canned)



Before you can go dairy-free, you’ll need to know what how to replace the gap that it leaves in your diet. Here are some alternatives to get you started.
This is a big one for most of us. It is used in tea, cereal, baking, sauces and soups. It is also the key ingredient in a lot of other popular food – cheese, yoghurt and ice cream to name but a few. But it isn’t as unavoidable as it might seem once you discover the alternatives.

  • Plant-based
    There are a variety of plant-based milks that are not only dairy-free, but high in various vitamins and minerals. They include nut milk, seed milk and milks made from grains. Some popular varieties found in shops are almond milk, hemp milk, rice milk and oat milk. They are all highly nutritious and make convincing milk substitutes.
  • Coconut milk
    Coming in both thick and light varieties, coconut milk is an excellent substitute for milk across the board. The thick canned variety is great for making creamy sauces and the light version found in cartons in most shops is great for using in place of cow’s milk. It is also free from gluten, nuts and dairy – so great for those who suffer with intolerances.
  • Homemade
    The majority of plant based milks can be made at home with minimal effort. Simply take your chosen ingredient and blend it with water and sweetener to taste. If using nuts or seeds, be sure to soak beforehand!

Cheese is the mammoth hurdle all people cutting dairy out need to jump, and there are very few alternatives on the shelves that satisfy the cravings. But fear not; there are a number of substitutes that you can make at home with little effort.

  • Nut cheese
    There is a whole range of nut cheeses that you can make at home for a creamy spreadable alternative to cheese. Many of them use cashew nuts, so it is useful to stock them in your cupboard. These cheeses are filling and packed with all the nutritional benefits of whichever nut you use – take a look at inSpirals’s macadamia nut cheese recipe to get you started!
  • Solid cheese
    inSpiral now stock agar agar flakes, which have been used in many recipes to create convincing substitutes to cheese that slice, grate and melt. Any vegan will understand that this is life altering!
  • Nutritional yeast
    As used in our new Tomato & Basil Pizza Kale-os, this amazing little ingredient is perfect for replacing the cheese flavour in your cooking. The cheesy tasting flakes can be blended into sauces, soups and sprinkled on salads for a nutty boost. As a bonus, it is also very high in b vitamins, including b12, which is notoriously sparse in plant-based diet.


Butter & spreads:

  • Coconut oil
    The perfect alternative to butter – this oil is revered amongst the nutrition community for its numerous health benefits. From helping burn more fat and boosting brain function to helping fight bacteria; populations that eat a lot of coconut are among the healthiest on the planet. Join them!
  • Avocado
    Affectionately referred to by many as ‘nature’s butter’, this dreamy fruit is a god send for those going dairy free. Naturally rich and creamy, when ripe, avocado can be used as a spread or mashed with other ingredients for a guacamole. Make them a staple in your new dairy-free diet.
  • Nut butter
    Nut butters are great for giving your food an extra protein boost, and if you’re trying to cut dairy out, they are sure to fill the gap. Peanut butter is the most common variety, but why not try inSpiral’s Almond Butter for a tasty alternative?


Calcium Concerns:

When you mention the fact that you’re thinking about cutting dairy out, many people will instantly comment on the lack of calcium, which milk is a primary source of in most modern diets. This might be a concern at first considering its importance for our bone health, but the truth is, better quality sources of calcium can be found elsewhere, but you do need to make sure you’re eating a lot of them, or supplementing.

Bear in mind though that optimal vitamin D levels are necessary for calcium absorption, and many people are deficient, especially in the UK. Vitamin D is another vitamin vegans need to think about – inSpiral stock a vitamin D3 spray that is derived purely from organic plant sources.  It is now being researched that perhaps we need less calcium in our supplements if we are fully replete in vitamin D.

Kale is extremely high in calcium and is also the most nutrient dense food on the planet (all the more reason to eat lots of kale chips!). Beans, tofu, organge juice, fortified planet-based milk and much more also contain just as much calcium, without all the problems that come with cow’s milk.

RECIPE: Macadamia Nut Cheese

Any newly converted vegan will tell you about their struggles with giving up cheese. Dairy-free replacements in the shops just don’t seem to cut it and nothing we eat gives quite the same hearty satisfaction as cheese.

But it needn’t be such a struggle – there are a plethora of nut-cheeses you can make at home that provide a perfect replacement to the original, and can be flavoured in any way you like. High in protein and healthy fats and lacking in the unhealthy saturated fats found in dairy cheese, they’re also way better for your body as well as animals.

Here we have a recipe for macadamia nut cheese with caraway, fennel and olive. This delcious alternative is completely raw, vegan and gluten-free and it includes our powerful probiotic blend to tip the nutritional scales. Taking the leap to a vegan diet just got a little bit easier!




  1. Place macadamias, water and probiotic capsule in a blender and process until completely smooth. Place the mixture in a strainer that has been lined with a cheesecloth and put a weight on top of it. Leave to culture for 36-48 hours at room temperature.
  2. Once culturing is complete, stir in the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Spoon the cheese mixture into a metal ring and repeat until all the cheese has been used.
  4. Place in the refrigerator to firm up a little bit.
  5. Voila! Vegan cheese that you can enjoy as a spread, in a salad or with our Raw Crackits.



Proviotic Vegan Probiotic Capsules

inSpiral are proud to introduce this brand new vegan probiotic capsule which has been isolated from Snowdrop flowers and grown in 100% GMO-free vegetable juice. Previously only thought to be available in dairy products, the strain strain of probiotics found in these capsules provide the benefits of Greek yoghurt without the animal products.

RECIPE: Superfood ‘Snickers’

Seeing as it’s Father’s Day soon, we thought we’d share a recipe that is as decadent as it is nutritious. We’ll understand if he’s not so keen on green smoothies, but this surprisingly healthy treat will be difficult to resist.

This recipe is adapted from Jesse Van Der Velde’s book ‘5 Steps To Becoming A Super Foodie’




  1. Gently melt the coconut oil and then stir in the cacao and lucuma powder. The exact amount of each powder can be adjusted according to preference. More cacao for bitterness, more lucuma for sweetness, more maca for manliness!
  2. Next add in the superfood of your choice. Stir the mixture thoroughly until a desirable consistency is achieved.
  3. Now pour a layer of the cacao mixture into a chocolate mould. Follow with a spoonful of peanut butter (or a nut butter of your choice) and then top with a final layer of the cacao mixture.
  4. Place in your fridge or freezer to set before serving.
  5. Enjoy!

A vegan milkshake loaded with energy to keep you going all day long. Our Maca powder is packed with iron which contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue; along with dates, almonds and chia seeds, you definitely won’t be going for a nap any time soon.

When Men’s Health Magazine interviewed an ethnobotanist in search of ancient tribal wisdom on helping men stay in top physical form, he recommended the Andean root, maca for “increasing strength, energy and stamina.”  Oxygen levels are lower once high up in the Peruvian Andes and maca powder is used regularly in their culture.  Maca makes ‘a powerful addition to any smoothie or milkshake.  Take daily for 8-12 weeks to feel the full, boosting effect.”


  • 50g almonds (soaked for 6 hours)
  • 500ml filtered water
  • 6 dates (pitted and chopped)
  • 3tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2tsp vanilla powder
  • 2Tbsp Organic Raw Maca Powder


  • First put the soaked almonds and the water in the blender and process until you have a smooth milky liquid.
  • Then add the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth.

(For a nut-free version, use hemp seeds or rice milk instead of almonds.)

Recipe: Raw Kale Seaweed Salad

We’re wild about seaweed!

We have recently added a selection of Atlantic Kitchen wild sea vegetables to our webshop.  As a consequence the whole team here have gone wild for seaweed! We wanted to share a recipe with you.


Seaweeds are a naturally nourishing super food packed with all the vitamins and minerals we need to live.  Just like land vegetables, there’s a whole rainbow of colours, textures and tastes out there, from sweetly mild to richly smoked, so that means there’s a leaf for everyone.

Atlantic Kitchen Seaweed is:

  • LOCAL: From the coldest, purest salt waters off the Irish, French and Spanish Atlantic coasts. We want to keep our ingredients as local as we can.
  • WILD: All our crops grow abundantly in the open ocean rather than being planted and farmed.
  • SUSTAINABLE: It is harvested in small batches at the peak of the season, while still alive. This is done by hand and by people who know how to protect, preserve and promote healthy growth year on year.
  • ETHICAL: We work with local co-operatives who have worked and lived by the coast for generations. Helping to maintain and generate employment within these coastal communities is another positive outcome of eating seaweed.
  • FRESH: Most of the seaweeds you see washed up on the shore are not the edible kind and they are no longer fresh.  This is not what you will find in our packets.


Raw Seaweed SaladkaleseaweedslawWEB400

1/4 cup of tamari or nama shoyu (raw soy sauce)
1/8 cup umeboshi plum vinegar
1/8 cup water
1 packet of  wakame, seaweed spaghetti or dulse seaweed
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 lemon or lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon of coriander
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/8 cup red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup red pepper thinly sliced
2 bunches of our favorite vegetable, kale
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1. Combine the tamari, umeboshi vinegar and water in a bowl. Add the seaweed and let it sit for 30 minutes or overnight.
2. Combine cider vinegar, lemon/lime juice, coriander, and pepper in separate large bowl. Add chopped onion and red pepper, allow time to soften.
3. Add kale to onion and pepper mixture and toss to coat in dressing. Add sesame oil.
4. Drain seaweed, reserving the liquid. Add the seaweed to the kale and add 1 to 3 teaspoons of the excess soak liquid, to taste.
5. Lovingly massage the seaweed mix. This softens the kale.  Serve with inSpiral crackits

Sweet Potato & Raw Cacao Shake

chocolateshakeWEB400Sweet Potato Month!

October, the last month before winter, and has been called ‘the yellow month’ by Slavic people because of fading of the leaves into vibrant red, orange and yellow colours. It is also the peak season for sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are tubers that are rich in fibre, vitamins C and B6 and an excellent source of carbohydrates. These orange-fleshed gems are also rich in beta-carotene which we convert into vitamin A.


Tess-Ward400So how can we incorporate more vitamin A ingredients into our diet?  Eat more sweet potatoes! Chef Tess Ward has come up with a healthy chocolate shake using sweet potaotes! It sounds a little strange putting potatoes into a shake. but the result is a creamy, smooth and rich chocolatey drink.

Recipe: Raw Vegan Green Eggs and Coconut Ham


Green Eggs and Coconut Ham

Inspired by Dr. Seuss’s famous poem ‘Green Eggs and Ham’, this recipe calls for gluten-free bread with a generous layer of raw baobab mayonnaise, dehydrated coconut ‘ham’ and lashings of ‘green eggs’ (made from avocado mashed with himalayan black salt), topped with organic cucumber, cress & course-ground black pepper. It tastes just like an egg sandwich – only better… the secret’s in the black salt… yum!


The Secret Ingredient

Himalayan Crystal BlaHimalayan-Crystal-Black-Salt-PPWEB400ck Salt, also known as Kala Namak, is naturally rich in sulfur compounds, giving it a pungent taste. Mined from the vast, ancient, pristine Himalayan salt ranges, (which were once the seabed) it is used in Asian cooking, yet is still rare in the West.
