Energy-Boosting Breakfast Terrine With Unbeelievable

When I ask my three-year-old what mummy does for a job, he beams proudly, “she cooks healthy food!” While it isn’t the whole story, it is my favourite thing to do, and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to do it for a living. Especially when I get the chance to combine two passions, just like here…

You see, for a long, long time, I’ve had a thing about bees – they’re just so darn clever, and important to this world! Pretty much every mouthful of food, every item you stash in your fridge, is made with the help of bees. From your favourite mouth-watering fruits to that homemade granola, or your breakfast oats, chances are your food has had a helping hand from the humble little bee.

Because of this, I always pause to try and take the time to teach my children the importance of our furry, flying friends (you can read my blog for Lucy Bee on why bees are so amazing here), and I also love to show them the amazing things that bees can make.

As a hay fever sufferer, I’ve long been a fan of the lovely people over at Unbeelievable Health. Made using all-natural and bee-based ingredients, the little capsules they make can work wonders for my symptoms. And also cure my fatigue and give me some added rocket fuel!

I was so happy to team up with Unbeelievable for this breakfast recipe (so much so that I got carried away and even made little turmeric bumblebees!), which celebrates our favourite insects and helps you to get off to the best possible start, every day. With creamy, veggie-friendly “cheesecake” layers boosted with turmeric and matcha and crunchy, homemade granola fillings, this will brighten your Monday blues like a dream.

And, really, who could say no to a breakfast this pretty…?

Ingredients:

  • Serves 10
  • For the granola –
  • 1.5 cups gluten-free oats
  • ¾ cup nuts or seeds of choice, chopped (I used pecans and almonds)
  • ¼ cup raw, local honey OR brown rice syrup
  • Pinch pink salt
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • For the terrine base mix –
  • 4 cups cashews, soaked 4- 6 hours
  • 3/4 cup (or more, to taste) of raw honey OR maple syrup
  • ½ cup + 1.5 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¾ cup coconut milk (I used it from a tin)
  • Large squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean powder
  • For the pink layer –
  • ¼ of the base terrine mix
  • A handful of frozen raspberries OR raspberry powder
  • ¼ banana (optional)
  • For the yellow layer –
  • ¼ of the base terrine mix
  • A handful of frozen mango
  • ¼ banana
  • ½ – 1 tsp turmeric (to colour)
  • 2 tbsp coconut water
  • For the green layer –
  • ¼ of the base terrine
  • ½ – 1 tsp matcha OR spirulina (to colour)
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • For the white layer –
  • ¼ of the base terrine
  • ¼ banana
  • ¼ cup coconut cream
  • The contents of a couple of capsules of Bee Energised Unbeelievable Capsules, to sprinkle over granola layers
  • Bee pollen and edible flowers, to decorate

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 150C, then line a baking tray. Start by making the granola by stirring together each of the ingredients. Tip onto the lined baking tray and place in the oven to bake until golden (around 25-30 minutes), stirring half-way. Allow to cool, then pour into an airtight container and set aside.
  2. To make your base mix, gently melt the coconut oil in a pan, then set aside. Place the other ingredients in a high-powered blender and blitz until completely smooth and creamy, adding a splash more milk to bring it together if needed. Stop to taste, and adjust sweetness as necessary. Pour in the coconut oil and blend once more until combined.
  3. Divide the base mix between four bowls. Start by making your pink mix by placing all ingredients in the blender (although I recommend adding the raspberries a few at a time to help you achieve your desired colour) and mixing until smooth and creamy, adding a touch more coconut milk if needed. Pour into the bottom of a silicone loaf tin, then sprinkle over a handful of granola and the contents of a couple of Unbeelievable capsules. Place in the freezer to firm up for around 30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, make your remaining mixes by blending together the ingredients, just like you did for the pink layer. Set aside in their separate bowls until you can start layering.
  5. Once your pink layer has firmed up a little, pour over the yellow-turmeric mixture. Once again, sprinkle over some of your granola and the contents of some Unbeelievable capsules. Place back in the freezer to set, then repeat with the remaining two layers.
  6. Leave your terrine in the freezer to set completely for around 8 hours, or overnight. Remove around 15 minutes before you want to eat, then cut into slices and serve. Enjoy with a sprinkling of bee pollen and edible flowers!
