We can smell Christmas pudding here! 😍 We’re so excited to share with you this gluten, dairy, and refined sugar-free #christmaspudding recipe. Our Xmas Pudding is deliciously moist and sticky, it’s dense and full of flavour, yet light and packed with nutrients. Oh, and of course, it's #poweredbycrickets 🦗
• 2 tbs Grilo Cricket Powder or Grilo Cricket Protein Chocolate
• 1 tbs cacao powder
• 3 tbs almond meal
• ⅛ tsp cinnamon powder
• ⅛ tsp nutmeg powder
• ⅛ tsp clove powder
• ¼ tsp orange zest
• 1 tbs baking powder
• ¼ tsp bicarb soda
• 4 tbs maple syrup
• 1 medium cooked sweet potato (peeled and diced)
• ¼ cup coconut oil melted
• 2 eggs
• 1 cup of Brandy
• 1 cup of sliced dried figs
• ½ cup raisins
• ½ cup sliced apricot
Soak the dried fruits with brandy for 24 hours. In case you prefer not to use alcohol, you can use 1 cup of orange juice instead. Preheat oven to 150 °C and line an oven safe round bowl with baking paper.
Blend maple syrup, eggs, coconut oil and half of the sweet potato until it turns into a thick mixture. Spliting the sweet potato in 2 parts and adding it gradually may help with blending.
In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix them together, then pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Add the dried fruit mix to the mixture and combine everything. Transfer the dough to the previously prepared round bowl, take it to the oven and bake for 45 to 50min. Let the pudding cool down completely before serving.
To make the custard:
In the blender: 2 cups of coconut cream, ⅓ cup of raw cashew nuts, ¼ cup maple syrup, 1/2 tbs vanilla essence, 1 tbs Brandy (optional). Blend until mixture turns into a thick sauce. Serve warm with the pudding.
Merry Crickets! 🎅🏼❣️

It’s simply roasted crickets ground up into a fine powder, ready to use in either sweet or savoury recipes.

Oh and also high in iron and omega fatty acids 😉⠀
We can hardly call this a recipe as it’s extremely simple to make - with only 4 ingredients, but anyway... What we love most about this chocolate smoothie is that it’s got this creamy texture, it’s flavourful and has nothing artificial, because we believe natural is the way to go. The key to this texture is to use frozen fruits, and our pick is usually banana, known for its ice-cream like qualities (and pairs amazingly with cacao!) This smoothie packs over 19 grams of protein in one serve, and will keep you satisfied for long!⠀
- 2-3 tbs (30g) Grilo Cricket Protein Chocolate 🦗
- 1 frozen banana 🍌⠀
- 1 tbs nut butter (almond or peanut butter taste delicious!)⠀
- 2 ice cubes⠀
Use enough water to help it blend, this will depend on your blender, we suggest no more than 1/2 cup. Blend it all and top with raw cacao powder. 🙌🏽⠀
Insects have been part of people’s diets for many centuries... but why have some lost the taste for bugs? “The reason for our rejection is historical, and the story probably begins around 10,000 BC in the Middle East Fertile Crescent, when people begin to settle. And as they learned to farm crops and domesticate animals like cows there, attitudes changed. Insects started to be perceived as a pest that destroyed the crops." We’re here to bring your taste for bugs back 👊🏽🦗
