  1. To make the Macaroon Shells:
  2. Firstly, place of the 100g stevia, ground almonds and cornflour in a blender and whizz up to form a fine powder. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl place beat the egg whites until they hold soft peaks. Slowly add the remaining 30g stevia and beat until the mixture holds stiff peaks.
  4. Add the vanilla extract - then this is where the fiddly bit is to divide the mixture into 4 bowls (leaving one in the bowl) and sift each different superfood powder into each bowl. Beat each for 30 seconds with the whisk to incorporate. Set aside
  5. Carefully weigh out and divide the ground almond mixture into four - add to each superfood bowl and fold in well to form a smooth batter. Don’t overmix it!
  6. Use a small cutter and a large sheet of greaseproof paper to draw circles so they are all the same size and place on two baking trays.
  7. Do this one colour at a time: Transfer the batter to a piping bag with a large circle tip. Pipe macaroons using the circles as a guide. Firmly tap the baking trays to remove any air pockets. Let the macaroons stand for 15 minutes.
  8. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C. Bake for about 17-18 minutes until nicely risen and slightly crispy on top - allow to cool on the tray for at least 15 minutes.
  9. For the Macaroon Fillings:
  10. Beat together the solid coconut oil and cream cheese together until smooth then add the stevia, coconut flour and vanilla.
  11. Once again, divide this between 4 bowls and to each, add the different superfood powders. You may want to add more stevia or a syrup to sweeten.
  12. Pipe onto one of the matching macaroons and top with a second one - arrange them all to look pretty.
  13. Share and enjoy!
