Who are Nuzest?

Healthy dessert recipes

Nuzest was founded by father, Trevor Bolland, and daughter, Monique Bolland after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the tender age of 23.  

In an effort to help find a solution, Trevor went on an international search with neurologists, nutritionists and naturopaths to discover that good nutrition and a healthy, balanced lifestyle was a critical key to managing the disease.

From his research, Trevor ended up developing Nuzest to help others easily obtain the vitamins, minerals and nutrition that they need in their diet.

Vanilla Matcha Nice Cream

Vanilla Matcha Ice Cream


Vanilla matcha Nice Cream method

Add frozen bananas to your food processor, slowly adding your coconut water if needed (this usually depends on the strength of your food processor).

Once the bananas are light and whipped, add the avocado, baby spinach and protein and blend again.


  • Honeydew melon balls

  • Kiwi fruit stars

  • Buckinis (for an extra crunch and additional source of complete vegan protein)

  • Hemp seeds (for another amazing high protein nutty flavour)

Pre-workout Raw Coffee Donuts

Pre-workout Raw Coffee Donuts

Donut ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cup almond meal

  • ¾ cup soft pitted Medjool dates

  • 2 tablespoon raw extra virgin organic cold pressed coconut oil melted*

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract

  • 1 serve Nuzest Clean Lean Protein Coffee Coconut

  • 1 shot of espresso mixed with hot water

  • Pinch of salt

Donut method:

Blend ingredients and press into donut moulds. Freeze for a minimum of two hours.

Glaze ingredients:

  • ½ cup raw extra virgin organic cold pressed coconut oil melted*

  • 1½ scoops protein

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Glaze method:

Whisk together until combined and then let cool for approximately 10 minutes. While it’s cooling, pop your frozen donuts out of the mould and put onto a cake-cooling rack ready for glazing.

When the glaze has thickened, drizzle it slowly over the donuts, one at a time. Before the glaze solidifies, sprinkle some finely-chopped coconut chips on the top so they stick. Store in your freezer for up to two weeks.

*to ensure this recipe can be considered raw, don’t heat your coconut oil above 40 degrees Celsius.

  • 1 can coconut cream

  • 1 scoop Nuzest Chai Turmeric & Maca Clean Lean Protein

  • ½ tsp turmeric

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted


Blend all base ingredients in a food processor. Press the mixture very firmly into a small cupcake mould so they won’t crumble.

Sprinkle cinnamon and pepitas on top (optional). Cover in cling wrap and put back into the freezer for 2 hours (minimum).

Boody x Charlie Evans

Last week, in celebration of our New Nude collection, we hosted a 'nude' art class with @_artbycharlie. Charlie led the class, discussing abstract figurative techniques and started with a drawing exercise, focusing on the lines of the body, shapes, movement, negative and positive space, placing and composition. Our models were in the nude - Boody nudes. They each showcased the new colours and were the drawing focus of the class. Depending on your skin tone, everyone's version of nude is different. We believe that every line, fold, curve, shape, and colour that makes you you is something to celebrate. Our class was inspired by nude being a state of being, not a colour.  Discover our collaboration below with images of the day.  Shop nudes.
