The inSpiral Lounge Café in Camden, London, holds a special place in my heart as the first vegetarian restaurant I went to, many moons ago! (It’s vegan, with the exception of the option of cow’s milk for hot drinks. ) I loved the friendly, funky vibe and the great-tasting, wholesome food. There’s also a big emphasis on raw food, which definitely appeals to my tastes.
I’ve been back many a time since my first visit and have watched the brand grow and grow. They’ve launched a range of amazing raw vegan products which are now sold, not only in the Lounge but also in their online store, shipping worldwide!
Raw Banana Supergreen Bites
Raw Chocolatey Superfood Bites
Raw LoveBerry Superfruit Bites
I love their Raw Granola Bites either for snacking straight out of the bag or for breakfast: as a smoothie topper or in a bowl with fresh fruit and almond milk. They even come in fully compostable bags!
This is a new product for inSpiral- granulated Stevia sweetener. You’ve probably seen stevia about recently as the latest sugar alternative of choice for many health foodies. It doesn’t affect blood sugar levels and is completely natural, extracted from the stevia leaf. There’s often a bitter aftertaste associated with stevia but I couldn’t detect any with this brand.
inSpiral Kale Chips are simply the best! They’re 100% natural, raw and organic and come in a whole range of delicious flavours, including Purple Corn, Baobab & Onion, Wasabi Wheatgrass, Cacao & Cinnamon and more. I’ve tried various brands of commercial kale chips but none compare. These have a thick, flavourful coating, and satisfying crunch. They’ve definitely turned this sweet tooth into a savoury snacker!
I’m actually not mad about inSpiral desserts for some reason (The Raw Chocolate Blackout tart is the exception)…I find them almost too rich but I know many people love them so you’ll have to judge them for yourselves. The dessert pots are fully raw like all their products and come in Christmas Cake, Carrot Cake, Vanilla Berry Cream, Tiramisu, Hazelnut Creme, Passionfruit and Chocolate Blackout.
Finally, another savoury love of mine, the Raw Crackits. Their new recipe is even better than before and contains extra added health booster: Reishi, Siberian Ginseng, Shatavari and Rhodiola! Made from raw almonds, buckwheat and flax they’re crunchy and crumbly just like baked grain crackers.
Pictured are the herb crackits spread with mashed avocado. I can’t pick a favourite flavour.
inSpiral products are available in health food stores nationwide and, as mentioned, you can also purchase online from anywhere in the world.
