    Make a Dairy-Free Creamy Coleslaw

    Braai Day is around the corner, and you guys requested yummy healthy salads, so here’s my recipe to make a Dairy-Free Creamy Coleslaw. This creamy dairy-free coleslaw is a classic tasting South African coleslaw, made with dairy-free mayonnaise. It is gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free too, so everyone can enjoy this creamy summer salad. What is it about coleslaw that makes a plate of food so tasty? When I was a kid, whenever we got KFC as a family, I would always eat a tub of coleslaw by myself. For me, it was better than the fried chicken! The crunchy cabbage, sweet carrots and tangy mayo make me salivate! I feel…

    Using Bio XXI Fettuccine to make Mushroom Alfredo

    Last week I attended the launch to celebrate the BIO XXI RANGE now being available in SA and I decided to use the Bio XXI Fettuccine I was gifted to make Mushroom Alfredo. Before we get into the recipe, here is some more info on this new brand that has just hit our shelves. Bio XXI hails from Coronilla, a Bolivian family-run company, internationally renowned for its exceptional eco-social business model and Quinoa-based, gluten-free foods. When they say family-owned, they mean family-owned and the founder Diego and his mom welcomed us to the launch and even got involved in the cooking process. It was such a great event to attend…

    Grilled Honey & Rosemary Grapefruits

    This morning’s breakfast recipe is for Grilled Honey & Rosemary Grapefruits, topped with a sprinkling of granola. You might be wondering why I would choose to grill grapefruits, but if you are a grapefruit lover, bear with me. 😁 Grapefruit, when grilled with something sweet, like honey, caramelizes and complements the fruits bittersweet flavour. By adding a few sprigs of rosemary, which has a very ‘woodsy’ scent, the grapefruit also gets a delicious toasty flavour. We currently have quite a bit of grapefruit at home, (due to overlapping shopping excursions) which is why I decided to create another grapefruit recipe. Winter is for Citrus If you did not know, I…

    Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Muffins

    These Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Muffins are the yummiest way to incorporate veggies into a sweet treat — especially when there is a swirl of dairy free, cream piled on top. The muffins are super easy to make and require two bowls and a whisk to make the batter, so your kids could even help you make them. When they are done, they emerge from the oven fragrant with cinnamon and vanilla, and the dairy-free frosting with coconut chip topping helps to sweetly finish them up. The Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Muffins Let’s talk about some of the ingredients to make the Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Muffins themselves. You will need: Sunflower Oil…

    How to Make Rooibos Chai Latte

    Winter is coming (and Game of Thrones is finished😥) and today I’m going to show you how to make a Rooibos Chai Latte. This spiced drink is blended with frothed almond milk and takes only a few minutes to make at home. I absolutely love chai latte’s, but whenever I want to order one I have to first check if it is the powdered version. Although delicious and super creamy, the powdered versions are usually LADEN with milk powders that cause me to bloat within a few minutes. I’m talking about the kind of bloat that makes you like as though you may be 6 months pregnant. Not a great…

    Inspired by Street Food Netflix: Creamy Tom Yum Soup

    Over the weekend, I posted a picture of a Creamy Tom Yum soup I made after feeling inspired by Street Food Netflix and a lot of you guys asked for the recipe so, here it is. In case you didn’t see the post, Shaun and I were watching the first episode and were momentarily transported back to Thailand, as we watched the life & success of superstar Street Food Chef, Jay Fai. As the only street food eatery to be awarded a Michelin Star in the inaugural Bangkok Michelin Guide 2018, the no-frills street side venue has since catapulted to culinary fame for its crab omelette and drunken noodles. If…

    {Vegan} Creamy Tomato Butter ‘Chicken’ Curry

    Autumn is here there is a chill in the air and warm comfort food is a must. I am serving up this delish #MeatFreeMonday dish using ZZ2 Classic Round Tomatoes. The hearty and warming meal is packed with all the spices and flavours that go into a butter chicken, but without using any chicken. I think it is as good as the original dish. 😁 Usually, the sauce for butter chicken is loaded with butter and cream, but this version uses coconut milk, as it is a dairy-free alternative. Coconut Milk and Coconut Oil help to give this dish a creamy luxurious texture, further complemented by the use of ripe,…

    Dairy-Free Ice Cream with Speckled Eggs

    Its the LONG weekend and I knew I had to get this Dairy-Free Ice Cream with Speckled Eggs recipe up just in time to celebrate Easter! This recipe uses an ice-cream machine and the one I have is a Krupps that I purchased from Yuppiechef a while back. What if I don’t have an ice cream machine? If you don’t have an ice cream maker, the other option is to freeze the ice cream and in intervals, remove and whisk vigorously. So once transferred to a container, place in the freezer, take it out every 45 minutes and whisk to make the mixture light and fluffy. Use an electric mixer if…

    Orange & Chocolate Bliss Balls

    These healthy Orange and Chocolate Bliss Balls are delicious little morsels packed with energy and wholesome ingredients.  Also known as ‘Jaffa balls’ (if using orange flavours), or ‘protein balls’, bliss balls are made by combining nuts, dates and coconut.  I think the word Bliss must have come from the bright idea of adding cocoa or melted chocolate to these little bites. Don’t they look so pretty! 😍   They are one of the best snacks to have on hand, especially when we are running around like a crazy person and need a quick on the go snack. Dates are naturally sweet, so these bliss balls don’t contain any extra sugar…

    Soothing Pink Beet Moon Milk

    Hands up if you’d like a warm mug of Pink Beet Moon Milk? This pretty pink drink isn’t filled with colourants, but rather uses Beetroot Powder, Maca and some aromatic spices… If you’re in dire need of a peaceful nights sleep before the week begins, it might be time to sip on a warming cup of moon milk. It is my second time blogging about Moon Milk – but in case you didn’t see my last post, Moon Milk is a drink used in the ancient holistic practice of Ayurveda, as a remedy for sleep deprivation and is usually consumed before bed.
