    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…

    Make a Christmas Coconut Cake

    It’s the second last day of my 24 Days of Christmas blog posts and today’s recipe is a naughty but nice one – How-to make a Christmas Coconut Cake.

Decorate with whatever berries or fruit is in season and top with some edible sparkles for that festive vibe. This Christmas Coconut Cake is the kind of cake that beckons you in every time you walk past it and it’s dead easy to make. Serve as a dessert or slice up and serve with tea and coffee.

    Healthier Peppermint Crisp Tart

    Happy Monday! Holiday spirit is officially the air – people are talking life less seriously and I am making a healthier Peppermint Crisp Tart – using gluten free biscuits, a vegan homemade caramel and a coconut whipped cream. The thing that I think we all love about a Peppermint Crisp Tart is the fact that it has that moreish coconut taste from the Tennis Biscuits and that sweetness from the caramel, which is all balanced out by the layers of cream and pops of freshness in our mouths from the Peppermint. Remaking an old favourite I think I have managed to achieve something similar, but slightly healthier – just by swopping…

    24 Days of Christmas: I Heart Granola Chocolate Tarts

    It’s Day 7 of my 24 Days of Christmas, and I am serving up I Heart Granola Chocolate Tarts.
