Quick vegan ice-cream which scoops like a dream.

What a time to be alive. This is my gift to the people. It feels like the pinnacle of my contribution to veganism. I take full credit for the modification of other vegan ice cream recipes into an incredibly simple, quick, cheap recipe – with no fancy ingredients – that scoops directly from the freezer…

Ooh, it’s frisky… mango, watermelon, and tofu salad!

So, so simple and pretty! This adorable salad is just fried, diced tofu, diced watermelon, diced mango, diced cucumber, on a bed of salad with a side of balsamic. Balsamic vinegar isn’t absolutely necessary as the juicy fruit acts as a lovely dressing. An alternative dressing is to blend tahini and mango with a dash…

LSA-Lemon-Berry Cake with Coconut Cream (Low Sugar)

This is so lovely. This is my first layer cake. ♥ Pretty proud of it actually. Plus; low sugar, low oil. I’m currently experimenting with cakes to see just how low the sugar and oil can go and just how much healthy can be jammed into them without losing the cakey texture and flavour that we love….

Beautiful Raw Chocolate Tart

This is lovely and so easy to make. I’m also happy to feed this to my 15 month old son because it’s not too sweet and all natural! Base: Blend 1/2 cup of LSA, some nuts and seeds, 1 or 2 dates (pitted and soaked for 5 minutes or until it softens) and cocoa. Add…

Iced Cookies

I was feeling a bit stressed by a monster week and an unwell Little Bear, so I took some time out and baked some cookies. They’re really crunchy and hard. Iced. Mm.  INGREDIENTS 3 tablespoons golden syrup 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup margarine 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 & 1/2 to 2 cups flour Dash…

Raw Passionfruit-Macadamia Biscuits With Strawberry & Lavender Spice

This is my first experimentation with lavender. It’s a strong flavour so use sparingly. These cookies are lovely and my 1 year old son loves them too. Don’t forgo the strawberry, that’s the freshness! Note this person being wooed like putty. And THEY’RE PRETTY. BISCUIT INGREDIENTS 1.5 cups coconut 1/2 cup sliced almonds 3 teaspoons…

Red Chai

Beautiful. Brew up a batch for friends. I’ve been wanting a caffeine-free chai for so long. Rooibos (red bush) tea makes a lovely alternative. It’s also fine for children and a lovely dessert tea. Perfect served with fruit toast and Kere’s bliss balls. Dedicated to my sis. Chai tea brings peace. INGREDIENTS 1 stick cinnamon…

No Refined Sugar No Bake Healthy Hazelnut Afghan Biscuit Cookie Batter Bites

This is one of those “few handful” recipes. It’s really lovely way to enjoy afghan biscuits without all the sugar. Plus they’re gluten free! Definitely kid-friendly – lots of healthy nuts – and they also enjoy collaborating on the build! 70g pack hazelnuts 2 and a half teaspoons cocoa powder 2 big, heaped teaspoons peanut…

Oh-Lord-My-Mouth-is-in-Heaven Eggplant Parmigiana

Glargh. Of course it was amazing, the recipe came from a hot primary-school teacher I met at a potluck. The only way it could have tasted better was if she was a librarian. So here’s the thing, she didn’t give me quantities, so I’ve helped out where I can but you may have to fill…
