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

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
Peanut butter cup smoothie bowl
I love peanut butter cups and I LOVE smoothie bowls. Quite often if, after the kids have had dinner and I haven’t mustered up the energy to cook something for Mr H and I, I’ll just make us a smoothie bowl and load it up with all the toppings. This smoothie bowl however is one I’d reserve for dessert or a little treat as it’s super duper indulgent and devilishly delicious.Continue reading
Three ingredient chickpea clusters
These little clusters of heaven are so good if, like me, you like a little mixture of smooth and crunchy, sweet and salty, chocolate and chickpea! I might have lost you at the last one, but trust me on this one, chickpea clusters are the new black.Continue reading
Four ingredient bounty hearts
Bounty is one of the chocolate bars that is very divisive, much like Marmite. You’re either team bounty or you’re team mutiny. Well I’m team bounty, and I’m guessing if you’ve read this far then you might just be too. So I’m in good company.Continue reading
Chocolate sweet potato muffins
My brother absolutely loves chocolate muffins, they’ve been his favourite breakfast for as long as I can remember and my mum’s been buying them for him on special occasions for just as long. Now that we’ve all got a little healthier in my family he doesn’t have them quite so often, but when he goes to stay with our mum she’ll still buy him a packet as a treat. It’s the same with Mr H and my mother in law, she always always buys him crumpets for brekkie when we come to stay, so maybe it’s something all mothers do for their grown up sons. Continue reading
Raw carrot and walnut cake with cashew cream cheese frosting
This is most definitely my new favourite cake. It’s very quick to make (as no baking time is needed) but thanks to the carrots it’s really light and moist, unlike some of the other raw cakes I have tried in the past. They can be a bit dense and heavy you see because of all the dates and nuts involved, but not this beauty! It’s perfectly spiced too, with just the right amount of sweetness and the frosting just takes it to ANOTHER LEVEL. Continue reading
