White chocolate magnums

Magnums for me send me right back to summer holidays on the beach. Every day after lunch my dad would declare it was ‘about time for an ice cream’ so off we’d trot to the nearest ice cream van or shop and make our selections. It was a very tough decision making process, especially as there were always so many that took our fancy.

Rocky road balls

Rocky road is one of my favourite things ever – the crunchy biscuit, the chewy raisins and all the chocolate – we’re basically talking perfection here. We’re also talking a very indulgent and often sugar-laden dessert but what if I told you that these balls are just as good, if not better!

Strawberry ice cream

Every year Mr H and I say we are going to go strawberry picking, because let’s face it, nothing beats British strawberries and the concept of being able to secretly stuff our faces with them while no one is watching sort of appealed to us too.

This year we finally made it, and I think it was just at the right time too. Baby H is old enough to understand how to pick them, and it made me very happy teaching her that they actually grow on bushes rather than in boxes in the supermarket. She was in absolute heaven, as was evident from the giggles of excitement and the pink stains all over her top. Continue reading

Golden shake

I know I’m totally on the same (rather crowded) bandwagon as everyone else but I’m really loving turmeric right now. I got a little bit obsessed with turmeric lattes (no caffeine + actually good for you = winning) but I was spending a small fortune on them every week so decided to give making them at home a go.

Bounty bar ice creams

Coconut and chocolate are pretty much a match made in heaven, wouldn’t you agree? There’s something amazing about rich indulgent chocolate combined with sweet creamy coconut that just hits the spot. Coconut is also the best dairy substitute around in my opinion, there’s coconut cream, coconut milk, coconut butter – everything dairy can do coconut can do too!

Strawberry ice lollies

I don’t know about you but at the first hint of summer I’m all over the frozen desserts. And when British strawberries are about to come into season I stock up on them too and stuff my freezer full to last me as long as possible (although they normally don’t end up lasting very long). I am absolutely adamant that this year we will finally do what we say we’re going to do every single year and go to a pick your own strawberries place. Fingers crossed we can find a weekend day amongst all the summer weddings and birthday BBQs to get our strawberry pick on.

With my love of stashing strawbs and my love of frozen treats when the sun is out it seemed only natural to combine the two. So here we have it; strawberry ice lollies with just three ingredients, so easy to make and the most refreshing and delicious dessert to enjoy outside in the sunshine!

Makes 8 mini lollies

  • 8 large strawberries
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp coconut cream

Place the ingredients in a blender and whizz until they form a smooth purée. Pour into moulds and place in the freezer overnight to set.

Love, Mrs H xx
