    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 this 4 Ingredient Lemon & Basil Granita is that it is 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.…

    Sleep Easy with a Cup of Blueberry Moon Milk

    Sleep Easy with a Cup of Blueberry Moon Milk – a concoction of dairy-free milk, fragrant spices, maca powder. 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. Sleep Easy with a Cup of Blueberry Moon Milk 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…

    {Gluten Free & Vegan} Creamy Basil Pesto Spaghetti

    Today I am sharing a comfort food recipe for this bowl of Gluten Free and Vegan Creamy Basil Pesto Spaghetti. If there is one herb I absolutely LOVE it is Basil. For one, it is the only herb I can actually keep alive. It is also wonderfully fragrant and versatile and elevates a dish that may otherwise taste too bland. Most importantly, you can make pesto with it. However store bought pesto is expensive because it usually contains pine nuts, (the most expensive nut known to man😅) garlic (which I can’t eat) and other unhealthy additives. A while back I made this healthy, budget friendly homemade pesto using cashews and the…

    {GF, V, DF} Pumpkin & Cinnamon Crumpets

    Happy Saturday! Today we are making gluten free, vegan Pumpkin Crumpets. There are no shortage of recipes on the internet that use just banana and egg to make Gluten Free crumpets, but I find these recipes way to ‘bananary’ for my liking. I had some leftover pumpkin from last nights dinner and decided to improvise and the result are these healthy Pumpkin Crumpets, which are the perfect addition to a weekend brunch. They are: Gluten free Refined sugar free Vegan as I didn’t use any eggs or milk. Please tag me if you decide to make these? Love, Cat Ingredients: 1 cup Gluten Free rolled oats 1/3 cup of Gluten…
