Raspberry Mango Smoothie Bowl

Smoothies in a glass is so last season, so mix it up this spring and put it in a bowl! I find the advantage of a smoothie bowl is that you can bump up the nutrition by adding extra fruits, nuts and seeds on top, even nut butters! For the Amber Approved Magazine spring edition I concocted a super simple and basic smoothie bowl that allows you to play with different toppings as you desire! Featured on my smoothie bowl is shredded sulphite free coconut, chia seeds and fresh raspberries and blackberries!

Review: Raw Bar

Imagine a dining experience where the: Atmosphere is cool and casual, yet elegant all at the same time , The servers are knowledgable and willing to assist in your gluten-free or allergen quest, the food is not only safe for your insides but soothing to the soul,  Gluten-free does not mean sacrifice and almost every dessert is gluten-free, fresh, hand made AND refined sugar free Have this image in your head? Good. Now get in your car and drive to the dream: Raw Bar by Duncan Ly. Dining at Raw Bar, you will immediately feel the passion and love that goes into every dish, it is perfectly cooked, plated and presented with such pride that you cannot help but feel the same about it while eating it. The ingredients are locally sourced, and seasonally chosen, and crafted to be one thing and one thing only: brilliantly delicious.

If I had to recommend one restaurant for someone to choose  it would be Raw Bar. It has a fun and laid back atmosphere where you can relax with a friend or loved one and connect over a decent meal that will not leave you with a tummy ache later. The staff is extremely dedicated in ensuring your meal is prepared as allergen free as is possible and is knowledgeable about which menu items contain gluten which means that you can feel safe dining here. They are hugely aware of the most common allergens and are willing to help, just be sure to mention it when ordering. Another fantastic perk was that they used gluten-free soy sauce in their dishes.

Thanks to Karine Moulin,  the dessert menu is mostly gluten-free, refined sugar free as well as dairy free. All desserts are freshly made in house, with seasonal flavourings. The desserts, much like the food are crafted with extreme love and passion. I have tried most of Karines decadent offerings and can safely say, they are all worth trying…some of them even more than once.

What I tried while visiting Raw Bar:

Starters, Lemongrass Tofu, sea scallop

Main: Pad thai, and the crab and coconut fried rice (ordered sans crispy onions)

Dessert: Sriracha chocolate tort with peanut ice cream, any of their in house made chocolate bars, and any of their in-house made ice creams (flavours change seasonally).
