My favourite breakfast ever is berries and yogurt (with some granola on top) as I just love the creamy smooth yogurt and the tart sweet berries together; it’s just so delicious I could eat it for every meal! Now that it’s summertime (as I write this) I’m experimenting with some delicious new lolly flavours to satisfy my sweet tooth while keeping me hydrated and cool at the same time too. I love how refreshing these are and how fancy they look with the yogurt and berries swirled together. They’re like a parfait in an ice lolly and I’m so here for it.Continue reading

Snickers yogurt bark
Snickers is my absolute favourite. I mean whoever thought to combine chunky peanuts with chocolate is a genius, as is the person who thought to freeze yogurt in a sheet and call it yogurt bark. Did you know I love yogurt too? I could just eat a whole sharing pot in one sitting (I mean sometimes I do) I love the lightness, creaminess and texture of it, and of course I love using it in desserts too.Continue reading
Frozen hot chocolate
These make me feel like a bit of a magician. I imagine the monkey from Coco Pops feels the same as I guess it’s the same kind of science; pop in something chocolatey, add some milk and stir to make your milk all chocolatey too. Except these are way better than Coco Pops in my opinion.Continue reading
Strawberry chocolate fudge
Chocolate and strawberries go so well together; I love to make chocolate dipped strawberries as an easy dessert when people come over for dinner and I’ve always been an advocate that they are the better 2/3 of Neapolitan ice cream, but this fudge is just next level.Continue reading
Rice cake Kit Kats
2022 – officially year of the rice cake. Rice cake this, rice cake that, everyone has their take on it. But don’t knock it till you’ve tried it! I’ve been wanting to make healthier Kit Kats for ages but never knew what to use for the wafer as store bought ones are often very sugary but then it came to me.Continue reading
PB & J blended overnight oats
PB & J is without a doubt one of my all time favourite combinations, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. It just works so well. The sweet fruitiness of the jam balances out the creamy nutty peanut butter so well, and the textures really complement each other too. In keeping with the smoothness of the peanut butter I wanted to make this a blended oats recipe, but it works just as well if you omit the blending and mix the oats ingredients in a bowl instead.Continue reading
Two ingredient Nutella truffles
Truffles are probably the best chocolates out there, the king of all the confectionary if you will. I’ve always been similarly predisposed to them, I remember Santa bringing me a box of Lindor in m stocking and feeling so sick at Christmas lunch one year because I’d indulged in far too many before we sat down to eat.Continue reading
Blueberry frozen yogurt bark
I kept hearing about this stuff called ‘yogurt bark’ and it didn’t sound super appetising if I may say so. Then I realised what it was, nothing to do with trees at all and way more than JUST yogurt. This one not only tastes amazing, it’s super good for you, a lovely healthy snack (especially on a hot day) and it’s incredibly easy to make. Oh and have you seen the colour!Continue reading
Two ingredient granola butter
Now I’m sure I’ve told you over and over again how much I adore granola, but I’m a little bit fickle when it comes to the bottom of the jar. You see I love the chunky clusters, but when it’s basically just granola dust leftover I’m not quite as interested. I don’t like throwing food away though so I figured I should turn it into something else.Continue reading
Three ingredient chocolate soft serve
Growing up in England, the excitement level in the summer when you heard the tinkling sound of the ice cream van playing its little tune was off the charts. It always seemed so magical how the ice cream man could just pull a lever to get perfect swirly creamy soft serve into a cone. But as much as I loved a 99 Flake (which I’m sure cannot be anything close to 99p any more) I always wished there was a chocolate option too.
This ice cream is my own version, but 3 ingredients and no need to wait for an ice cream van. Just pop some bananas in the freezer, then the next day you’re good to go. I make this in my blender but once blended if you’re looking for the perfect fancy swirl in your bowl just pop it in a piping bag with a large open star nozzle, twist tightly and squeeze.
My kids absolutely love this one, and I’m happy they’re eating something healthier than store bought ice cream. Don’t tell them, but sometimes Mr H and I have it after they’ve gone to bed, except we add all the toppings on top too!
Makes 1-2 bowls, depending on whether you want to share!
- 3 frozen bananas
- 3 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/2 cup almond or oat milk
Place the ingredients in a blender and whiz until super smooth and creamy. Spoon into a bowl (or bowls) and enjoy immediately, or store in the freezer to enjoy at a later date (just take it out around half an hour before serving). You can even store any leftovers in lolly moulds and have them as ice lollies instead.
Love, Mrs H xx
