Happy World Health Day! Here’s a ridiculously delicious and quick peanut sauce recipe to celebrate

Updated: Apr 8

World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated each year on 7 April under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (shout out to the WHO, especially after the last 15 months!!).

One of ubebu’s mottos is “health is wealth” and, as previously mentioned, this motto plays a large part in our branding. Good health is absolutely priceless and I think it is important that we do everything we can on an individual basis to take care of our health and wellbeing. Another motto you might have seen on my website captures this so well: "If you don't make time for your wellness, you'll be forced to make time for your illness."

There are many ways to take care of your health and wellbeing, and certainly as a holistic health and wellness coach I work with my clients in a holistic way, incorporating the mind, body and spirit into each bespoke program.

Good, balanced, clean, varied and fun food definitely plays an important role in your holistic health, and today I would like to share with you one of my go-to recipes for when I’m feeling extra lazy (which is… well… not that rare): peanut sauce!

There are numerous ways to enjoy your peanut sauce, one is as a dipping sauce for summer rolls

Having spent a chunk of my life in Asia, especially Indonesia, I have become a huge fan of peanut sauce. You can use it in such a variety of ways and it’s just so freakin’ delicious! (And there are even non-peanut alternatives for those with allergies - see recipe notes.)

There are numerous recipes online for authentic Indonesian peanut sauce, but here’s my quick and easy take on it. The recipe only has a handful of ingredients and involves absolutely no cooking or chopping! It takes a mere 5 minutes to make and provides 4 servings.


  • 6-8 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoons soya sauce

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes

  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1/4 cup water (to thin - I tend to use hot/warm water)
