    Mango & Coconut Chia Pudding

    Happy Monday! Today’s recipe is a very simple Mango and Coconut Chia Pudding that you can eat for breakfast or as a midday snack. This Mango & Coconut Chia Pudding is healthy and easy to make and is loaded with sweet mango flavour. You only need a handful of ingredients and a bowl and I have adapted it for you incase you don’t have a blender.     I generally make chia pudding with almond milk, but I think coconut and mango go very well together in this recipe. In fact, the combination of flavours and the texture of the chia pudding remind me of a Mango, Coconut Ice Cream…

    Raw Beet & Chickpea Hummus Dip

    Add some colour to your life with this Raw Beet & Chickpea Hummus dip – a healthy, creamy, and bright pink dip that’s as yummy to eat as it it to look at. Unlike regular dips, this one is free of cream and garlic, but still loaded with flavour from the chickpeas, lemon, beet and tahini. You can spread it on sandwiches and wraps, on salads or as a dip for raw veggies, chips and crackers. Beetroot and Chickpeas I have started to reintroduce certain foods back into my diet (after following a strict FODMAP diet for IBS) and I have really started to enjoy eating beetroot and chickpeas again. I…

    No Churn, Creamy Watermelon Sorbet 🍉

    This recipe for no churn Creamy Watermelon Sorbet is so simple, I am almost embarrassed to post it! 😁 It’s watermelon season at the moment in South Africa and what better way to use that huge watermelon taking up space in your fridge than with an icy cool sorbet?   This sorbet is made using coconut milk, watermelon and vanilla and requires no churning (i.e no ice cream maker) – just a little bit of patience and time. This sorbet is vegan, yet creamy and smooth and very refreshing. Why Coconut Milk? Sorbet usually comprises of water, sugar and fruit, but I wanted to change things up slightly to give the…

    ❤ Healthy Three-Course Valentine’s Dinner ❤

    Today’s post is my how to guide for creating a healthy 3-Course Valentines Dinner… Either you hate it or you love it – but February is here – aka the month of love. I have never really been the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day, mostly because I think it is far to commercialised. Do not even get me started on the retail madness that ensues on the overpriced (ugly) flowers, chocolates and teddy bears. 🤢 Even if Shaun and I did choose to partake in the madness, we have a wedding to save for, so we are eating in a lot this year! Which brings me to this dinner. Eat at…

    Pear, Cinnamon & Maple Overnight Oats

    It is the last Monday of January and while everyone waits in anticipation for payday, I have a budget friendly breakfast idea that is easy on the pocket and healthy too – Pear Cinnamon and Maple Overnight Oats. Have you ever tried Overnight Oats before? The idea is very simple – oats are soaked in flavourings, milk, milk alternative or juice overnight and you eat them chilled with any extra toppings that you like. They are foolproof to make and are a great time saver – make them the night before and grab them to go as you head out. The Pear, Cinnamon and Maple Overnight Oats These Overnight Oats…

    4 Ingredient Lemon & Basil Granita

    Today’s recipe is a very simple 4 Ingredient Lemon & Basil Granita. As temperatures continue to climb, I naturally reach for colder treats and granita is one delight that ticks all the refreshment boxes for me. Cold, icy, crunchy and fruity. What I like about it is that it lower in calories, dairy free and vegan. This icy concoction was invented in Sicilia, Italy’s southernmost region, which is a very dry and hot – so granita is a go to treat. 😎 It is made from fresh fruit and water, mixed together and frozen until icy. It is then flaked with a fork and frozen again. The result is a crunchy,…

    {Gluten & Dairy Free} Merlot & Chocolate Brownies

    Friday is here and what better way to celebrate than with Gluten & Dairy Free Merlot and Chocolate Brownies? It’s no secret I am in LOVE with a range of products that I have discovered from Chayah Foods. I have already made a Matcha Blue Smoothie Bowl and Blueberry Moon Milk. There was another product that got my creative juices flowing – their Merlot Flour. Say what? Merlot Wine Flour? This flour is real and is perfect in any recipe to add flavour, colour and even nutrition. Its taste is just like a good Merlot – but in powdered form! It is naturally gluten-free as well as alcohol free, but I…

    Sleep Easy with a Cup of Blueberry Moon Milk 🌙

    Today’s recipe is a purple Blueberry Moon Milk – a concoction of dairy-free milk, fragrant spices, a tart blueberry flavour, all mellowed out by sweet maple syrup. While I did not come up with the idea of Moon Milk, this concoction is my own recipe I was inspired to make when I received a box of goodies from Chayah Foods.     Just like when your mom used to make you a warm glass of milk and honey before bed, Moon Milk can calm you into slumber and has the added benefit of soothing your tummy – depending on what ingredients you use. The drink is used in the ancient…

    Let UberEats help you stick to those New Year’s resolutions

    Are you one of those people making New Year’s resolutions to be a healthier person, but then failing epically by the end of the first month? If you are – do not hate on yourself, because one statistic has shown that only 9.2% of people ever achieve their New Year’s resolutions! I think the most common mistake is that people choose to make very BIG changes to their habits, or try to achieve too many goals at one time. If you think about it, even changing a small percent of your habits requires a drastic amount of motivation. So, it would make sense then that we should not set goals too…

    This is a little post all about Uber Eats….

It has been such a great challenge – and has motivated me every day to be creative and push my boundaries in the kitchen to create awesome ideas for you.
