After 6 years, it happened - how to handle a 1 star review September 11 2019, 0 Comments

After 6 years of making Coconut Chips, it happened.

We received our first 1 star review.

We've had hundreds of published 5-star reviews and thousands of happy customers. Most of the reviews give me the warm & fuzzies, but this one made me squirm.


Camping, Manu & Muesli July 08 2019, 0 Comments

You may have noticed our absence lately on Social Media.... we intentionally unplugged and 'went bush' with the kids.  We spent several days camping on the Mitchell River - enjoying the amazing tropical winter weather and quality time with the kiddos.

Ironically, my kids love food besides coconut chips, and camping tends to have a lot of junk-food. *sigh*

Before we left, I met Manu Feildel at the Sunday Port Douglas Markets.  I heard he was in town for a 'Chefs in Paradise' event, and sure enough I spotted him amongst the market crowds.  I used to watch him in the 'Ready Steady Cook' days, but I think he's best known for his role MKR My Kitchen Rules.  He graciously agreed to a pic with me and one of my staff Matthew - thanks Manu!

Speaking of cooking, last month's $5 Muesli/Granola deal was a hit and the results are coming in!  Check out these reviews:

"​Omg this is a wonderful product for Keto peeps that have been missing muesli. The way the coconut is made makes it. Love love love - thank you" - Tania

"Best Muesli I’ve tasted .. just add or not want you want .. the shaved Coconut takes it to another level . A really natural, feel good , taste even better muesli . Well done"  - David B​

So I've made the Keto Muesli official - check it out here

Here's a final pic of my 8 year old daughter working with me at our seasonal Wednesday Marina Markets.  Yes, we pay our kids and she is our hardest worker.  Love!

I hope the first week of July is going well for you, too!  I'd love to hear - drop me an email info@beachharvest.com.au or check us out on the socials @beachharvest

Homemade Muesli - Vegan, Paleo, No Sugar June 07 2016, 0 Comments

 

I'm honoured and thrilled to have this recipe from the lovely Naomi from Raw Gems*.  Here is her recipe for Homemade Muesli.  Thanks Naomi! xo

~~~~~~

Muesli is very easy to make!  You can add whatever you like to suit your own tastebuds. Here’s what I used in mine.  All the ingredients that I use are organic.

Ingredients:

4 cups of oats

1 cup bran

1 cup Puffed rice 

1 cup Puffed buckwheat 

1 cup shredded coconut 

1 cup coconut chips (I prefer Maple)

1 cup Sultanas

½ cup Sun flower seeds 

½ cup Pepitas seeds

½ cup Goji berries

½ cup Cranberries

½ cup Slithered Almond 

½ cup Currants 

Method:

Add all ingredients in a large bowl or container, layer by layer. Once all ingredients are in the container, stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is even throughout.  Enjoy with your favourite milk - my favourite is activated almond milk.

Save remaining muesli in an air-tight container.  Enjoy!

Homemade Fudge with Coconut Sprinkles. Vegan, Raw, and Paleo friendly! July 13 2015, 0 Comments

I have the BEST recipe for homemade fudge - it's Paleo and Vegan, healthy and delicious.

This is perfect to make for the unannounced guest ("Hey, can we pop in for a quick cuppa?") or last minute 'bring a plate to share' function.

Here it is:

BLITZ these items (I use my blender):

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup walnuts

1 tbsp macadamia oil

2 pinches salt

 

When finished, stir through 50 grams of our COCONUT SPRINKLES.  I prefer to use either Maple, Himalayan Salt, or Plain.  But, if you prefer to add a bit of extra spice, use the Sweet Chilli.  

Spread mix into a glass baking dish (I usually line mine with cling wrap or baking paper).  Sprinkle COCONUT SPRINKLES on top.  

Freeze 1 hour.

Get ready for the compliments - this is a super easy and quick recipe to make and is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
