(Makes 24 pieces)
12 eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
2 ripe avocados
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon mustard (optional)
6 pieces of bacon
Cook bacon in a pan on medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towel and set aside. Cut each hard boiled egg in half and carefully remove the yolks.
In a mixing bowl, mash 6 full yolks with the avocado, garlic, olive oil, paprika, lemon juice and mustard. don’t use all of the yolks because the avocado will make it rich enough. It should be a creamy consistency after you fully mix the ingredients. Take your cooled bacon and finely chop into small pieces and add to mixture. Stir together.
Spoon each egg half with mixture. Sprinkle paprika on each egg.

Chocolate-Strawberry Truffle Pie
- 2.5 cups strawberries, or other berries (250g) (I used frozen)
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa powder or cacao
- 1.5 cups cashews (150g)
- 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
- 3 stevia packets (or 1/4 cup agave) (Plus extra as desired)
- 1/8 tsp salt
In a bowl, cover the cashews with water and let sit at least 4 hours. Then drain. Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender or food processor. If using stevia, add 4-5 tablespoons water. (Omit the water if using agave.) Blend until super-smooth. Taste and add more sweetener until desired taste is reached. Pour into a prepared pie crust (see below), and freeze.
30-Second Chocolate Pie Crust
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
- 1/2 cup raw cashews (or almonds, walnuts, pecans, or macadamia nuts)
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened) (See nutrition link below, for substitution notes.)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- scant 1/2 cup pitted dates (8 small dates) (Readers have said that raisins work as well.)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend. Then transfer to an 8-in baking dish or aluminum pan (as shown above). Using a piece of wax or parchment paper, smush into the pan and pour desired filling on top or refrigerate until ready to use.

Paleo Watermelon Cake
Prep time: 15 mins — Cook time: 5 mins — Servings: 6-8
– 1 large seedless watermelon
– 2 cans full fat coconut milk (left in fridge for 6 hours or more)
– 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
– 1 Tbsp. raw honey
– 1 cup sliced raw almonds
– Seasonal fresh fruit (for topping)
– Cutting board
– Kitchen knife
– Measuring spoons
– Measuring cups
– 2 medium mixing bowls
– Hand Mixer
– Paper Towels
– Can opener
– Medium sized skillet
– Stirring spoon
TO MAKE THE COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM
1. Make sure to place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours (or overnight). This will cause the cream to separate from the milk. The cream will be at the top of the can.
2. Open the can of coconut milk and scrape out the cream into a medium sized bowl. Hint: I always open the can from the bottom and pour the milk out into a separate container before scraping out the cream. You can use the saved milk for smoothies and other recipes.
3. Add the vanilla and raw honey to the mixture. Whip the cream with a hand mixer on medium speed and work your way up to high speed until the cream is fluffy. Place the bowl of whipped cream in the fridge until ready to use.
TO MAKE THE TOASTED ALMONDS:
1. Place a medium sized skillet over medium-high heat and allow the pan to get hot.
2. Add the sliced almonds and toss in the pan until they are toasted and turn a light brown color. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.
1. Remove the top and bottom from the watermelon and remove the rind from the middle section. You should be left with a cake-shaped piece of watermelon. Cut the watermelon “cake” into the number of wedges/slices you want. I recommend 6-8 slices depending on the size of the watermelon. (See below for a visual on how to cut the watermelon!)
2. Pat the outside of the watermelon dry with paper towels (this is important because it will help the coconut whipped cream adhere better).
3. Dip the outside edge of each slice into the coconut whipped cream and then into the toasted almonds, and reassemble the wedges into the cake shape on a serving platter. Top with more whipped coconut cream and your favorite fresh fruit (I used blackberries, strawberries and kiwi). Serve or store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
