Join us in the Organic Campus Garden for a Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution inspired Food Day event. It will be Cinco-de-Mayo themed, and as part of the final episode this season of Nutrishus, we will be filming it live in the garden, and making guacamole, salsa, and will even be visited by The Stand Juice Company of Fairfield to learn about why they love sustainable agriculture and all things organic, local, and healthy! 

It will be a nutritious and delicious day, I hope you’ll join us! 




Truffes de Pistache et Noix de Coco

Screen shot 2013-04-29 at 7.11.25 PM

Inspired by the delicious chocolates we ate while in France, here’s our super simple Nutrishus Truffle recipe (aka recette de truffe)

You’ll need:

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 12oz  Dark Belgian Chocolate (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract as desired
  • shredded coconut
  • chopped pistachios

In a medium-sized sauce pan over medium heat, add your chocolate and cream. Allow the chocolate to melt before stirring. Stir until well incorporated and barely thickened. Take off of heat. Quickly stir in vanilla until just incorporated. Pour into a container of your choice (for example a tupperware container), cover with cling wrap or lid. Leave in refrigerator for about 2 hours, or freeze for about 20 minutes.

Remove from fridge or freezer. Using a spoon or melon baller, scoop out into bite size globs, roll into balls, and cover with coconut or pistachios. Voila!

Bon appétit!
