I love a dessert with a hidden ingredient; and sweet potato is one of the best in my opinion. Its natural sweetness really lends itself to sweet recipes, and the texture of it when it’s all cooked and gooey is just so perfect. I am a big chocolate mousse fan, but realised recently that I’d only made it with avocado or banana before and never really experimented beyond that. Well I was missing a trick, so I’m here so that you don’t!
All you need for this delicious little treat is four ingredients, and it’s incredibly easy to whip up too. It really does make for the perfect little weeknight dessert.
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.
Sandwiches for me are a bit of a thing of the past – I don’t really eat bread, I try to stay away from butter and I’m kinda fussy about fillings. BUT there’s a new type of sandwich in town – the crumble sandwich.
Now how did this creation come into existence I hear you ask? Well. I love a good crumble topping (it’s the best bit right?) and last time I was baking one I thought to myself ‘why can’t the crumble topping be on the bottom too’? I couldn’t think of any reason why not, so I got thinking and this is the result! Continue reading →
I just love a bit of mint choc chip – it’s sweet but also refreshing with a perfect chocolately crunch – and for that reason it’s always been one of my favourite flavour combinations. It was definitely my ice cream cone flavour of choice when I was younger, and my tastes don’t seem to have changed very much since! But of course nowadays seeing as I don’t eat dairy or refined sugar the traditional ice cream version tends to be off the cards, so I wanted to create something healthy and guilt free that also combines the minty and chocolatey flavours that seem to go so well together.

Breakfast is a magical thing – it has the power to transform something that would usually be classified as a dessert into a totally acceptable main meal. And I’m all about taking advantage of gastronomical norms when it means I get to start my day with something super delicious, a little sweet and potentially (and more often than not) full of cacao and or nut butter.
Coffee is like marmite – you either love it or you hate it – and if you love it (like me) it can be dangerously addictive. I used to get through not one, not two, but three large skinny lattes a day when I was working in an office, but managed to wean myself off it and felt loads better for doing so. But I do still really love the taste of it, so these days I’m still partial to the odd decaf almond milk latte here and there.
I’m a big fan of chia pudding (looks like dessert, tastes like dessert but is totally acceptable to eat for breakfast) so when they lovely people at Sevenhills Organic sent me some of their amazing organic chia seeds and cacao powder I wanted to create something super special and super delicious using them both.

I know what you’re thinking – HOW on earth can the chocolatey piece of heaven pictured above be healthy!? Well I don’t blame you, I can’t quite believe it myself to be honest! And trust me, this dessert isn’t just something that LOOKS unhealthy but tastes as if someone’s replaced sugar with spinach and chocolate with carrots, it doesn’t taste remotely healthy either! In fact it tastes downright indulgent and my ever-willing taste testers proclaimed that they actually wouldn’t have realised that what they were eating was totally guilt-free had I not told them beforehand.

This recipe is my new dinner party favourite – not only do these little shots look super impressive, but they taste bloody amazing too. Oh, and they’re a great way to use the shot glasses gathering dust in my cupboard given that I haven’t done a shot of anything (aside from wheatgrass) since about 2008. Giving away my age there a bit, but never mind! Continue reading →
It’s December, so Christmas is officially a-coming! Whilst I still have a LOT of Christmas/Hanukkah shopping to do (thank goodness for Amazon Prime hey), when it comes to festive recipes I seem to be pretty organised this year. I can’t wait to share them all with you! Continue reading →
