ALUNA HOT CHOCOLATE

If a mug of hot chocolate wasn't good enough, I only went and added Aluna Coconut Rum and took it to a whole new level, a very decadent grown up level. This beverage is perfect for those cosy get togethers with friends over Christmas or a little afternoon treat whilst watching your favourite Christmas film. Not only is this hot chocolate completely delicious but it is also vegan and whether you're vegan or not I am sure you will love it! If you're a chocolate and coconut fan you're going to want to give this recipe a go.


I N G R E D I E N T S


2 Heaped Teaspoons of Organic Cacao Powder - I used the MyProtein one

2 Heaped Teaspoons of Organic Coconut Sugar - I used the MyProtein one

25ml Shot of Aluna Coconut Rum

3/4 Mug of Organic Coconut Milk (or the milk of your choice)

1 Teaspoon of Clarks Carob Syrup


M E T H O D

The hot chocolate is best heated on the hob.

Blend a little of the coconut milk with the cacao powder and create a nice thick paste. Then gradually add the rest of the milk and sugar, stir and gradually warm.

Add the shot of Aluna Coconut to the mix and the carob syrup.

Stir and gently bring to the boil. As soon as it reaches the boil, remove from the heat.

Add to the mug of your choice and enjoy!


I hope you all enjoy this recipe, please let me know what you think!

Corinne x Living Sea Therapy

Living Sea Therapy are the latest brand to join my list of wonderful sponsors and supporters and I couldn't be happier to welcome them to the family. 



As you all know I have been working as professional free surfer some many years now and have an uncontrollable love for the ocean, beaches, especially the Cornish Coastline and I am lucky enough to call Cornwall my home. Even after the vast travelling I have done, I still love coming back to the rugged coast, wild seas and breath taking beaches. The cold Atlantic waters make my soul content, my skin feeling alive and my body healthy, which is why I collaborating with Living Sea Therapy makes me so happy! Living Sea Therapy too believe in the heeling powers of the sea and using sustainably sourced ingredients from the Lizard Peninsula. 


Here is a little more about this unique brand:

Living Sea Therapy is a window on Cornwall's unique geological past. It encapsulates Cornwall's underwater voyage, involving ancient rock dramas and mysterious kelp forests, that yield our cobalt waters and unique sea minerals. Working with our sister businesses, Cornish Sea Salt Co. and Cornish Seaweed Co. as well as a team of marine biologists, environmentalists and leading therapists, we have developed our Living Sea Therapy® range. Using sustainable hand harvesting and exclusive processes based on natural science we have created our wonder ingredient, Living Sea Complex® which combines three vital elements to harness the restorative powers of the sea especially for you and your skin.

The story starts deep beneath the crashing waves where rich salt and sea minerals, unique to the cobalt waters around the Lizard Peninsula, are gathered by The Cornish Sea Salt Co. We hand-harvest a few metres from our rugged shoreline using a zero-impact, 3,000-year-old artisan process and innovative technology. As well as hand-harvesting delicate sea salt flakes coated in beneficial minerals, we also harvest a mineral-rich elixir known as Cornish Sea Salt Minerals, which all goes into our marine cocktail to provide a treasure trove of benefits to revitalise your skin.

The story continues as we drift through ancient kelp forests along the rocky shoreline to marvel at tough, primordial plants which thrive in one of the harshest environments on the planet. We’ve extracted the very essence from three of the hardiest, most nutrient-rich species to bring a cornucopia of natural vitamins, minerals and goodness direct to your skin. Your conscience will benefit too, as the sustainable diving and foraging techniques used by our sister brand, The Cornish Seaweed Co, are setting the course for the way all seaweed is harvested in the UK.



Living Sea Therapy embodies everything that I believe in and are very much keeping my cold water mermaid dream alive. 
I will be bringing you month Living Sea Therapy dedicated blogs, with my hints and tips on how and where to use their products, as well as exciting give aways, competitions and event collaborations. 



Stay tuned for more LST wonderfulness! 


Here are my top 3 picks from the Living Sea Therapy collection.

Northcore Surfshields Surfer Ear Plugs

A couple of months I got sent some ear plugs by my sponsor Northcore, with the request that I give them a little test run and share my feedback. It is now 2 months on and I have been wearing the Northcore Surfshields Surfers Ear Plugs during nearly all of my surfs and here's what I found.


Comfy Fit

Unlike some ear plugs I have tried, they didn't feel uncomfortable when in. They slotted around my ear piercing with ease. 


Didn't fall out

In all honesty I thought they would fall out straight away. I kept waiting for the cord to get caught in my hair and pull the plugs out, but they didn't. They stayed in during every surf I had. 


Block water not sound

These ear plugs kept the water out but still allowed me to hear everything that was going on around me. 


Verdict

I can't recommend these ear plugs enough, they are reasonably priced, good quality and they actually work. I have tried and tested them and now don't ever surf without them. If you're a surfer and you spend a lot of time in the water then you NEED to wear ear plugs and if my advice doesn't convince you, just google Surfers Ear and then you'll soon see why it's important to protect your ears!
