    Blueberry & Coconut Chia Pudding

    Today I am making Blueberry & Coconut Chia Pudding, using Blueberry Powder from Chayah Foods and Coconut Yoghurt from Woolies.  I have mentioned quite a few times that Chia Pudding is one of my favourite gluten-free snacks and breakfasts, for a few reasons. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 4g of protein and they are also a good source of soluble fibre – which is very soothing to the gut. Chia Seeds also contain iron and Omega 3’s and have a neutral taste, taking on any flavour you add to them, which means that there really isn’t any reason not to eat these versatile little seeds.

    Easy Vegan Mango Sorbet

    Today’s self-isolation recipe is an easy Vegan Mango Sorbet and you don’t need an ice cream maker, just a blender or food processor.  In terms of ingredients – all you need is two large ripe mangoes, some maple syrup or honey and 1 lime or lemon.  Make sure that your mangoes are very ripe when you freeze them as that will ensure that the sorbet has a good sweetness. If you prefer a sweeter sorbet, use limes and if a tarter taste is preferred, then use lemon. If you are feeling adventurous,  you could even add a tablespoon of tequila or a pinch of chilli flakes. This is my go-to treat…

    3 Ingredient Banana Bread

    A recipe for 3 Ingredient Banana Bread, which uses Self Raising Flour, Condensed Milk and Bananas. The recipe is from Foodies of SA, the only modification I made was that I didn’t have self-raising flour, so I added three teaspoons of Baking Powder. The trick is to ensure that you don’t overmix the batter, as that can result in a wet bread. I have included the recipe below, and here are some pictures of how mine turned out. Enjoy Baking this 3 Ingredient Banana Bread! If you’d prefer Gluten-Free Banana Bread, try this version. 3 Ingredient Banana Bread Serves 10 INGREDIENTS 5 medium overripe bananas + 1 ripe banana to…

    Make this Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry

    A few of you have been asking for this recipe since the Bosch Cooking Class I hosted, so here it is-  my Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry Recipe. The Thai Green Curry paste is made from scratch in a matter of minutes and all you need is a blender or food processor to create the paste. I tend to avoid store boguth sauces and pastes as they are loaded with garlic, onions and preservatives, which are a big no-no if you suffer from IBS. By making the paste from scratch, I avoid this. After the paste is made, you move on to the making the actual curry, which takes less than…

    Rose Gold Valentines Gin Cocktails

    These Rose Gold Valentines Gin Cocktails are the perfectly pretty cocktail to mix up for your lover before you go out on a dinner date, or before dinner at home.  I made these cocktails using 5 ingredients: Strawberry Syrup, Thyme, Lemon Juice, Gin and an Egg White. Egg white might sound gross, but don’t worry, you don’t taste it all, and it gives the drink a nice pillowy smooth taste. The Ingredients in the Rose Gold Gin Cocktails I used strawberry syrup that I purchased from The Redberry Farm in George, but you could also use this version from Woolies. Wixworth Gin was my gin of choice, but really you…
