No dairy? No problem! Our delicious creamy almond cheese


We’re not going to lie to you lovely D&H’ers, we were always a little skeptical of dairy-free cheese. The idea of making creamy, dairy-like deliciousness from nuts conjured up all sorts of weird-tasting images, but in the name of research we decided to give it a go!

So we’ve come up with this fabulous almond cheese, which can be enjoyed either raw (as a creamy cheesy spread) or baked (for a crumbly feta-like consistency). It’s so delicious and super creamy as well as being packed with protein and good fats. Oh and of course it’s really easy to make, you know we like to keep things simple! So what are you waiting for…give it a whirl!  Continue reading

Creamy chocolate quinoa porridge


Porridge, quinoa and cacao have to be three of my favourite things. So when the lovely people at Quinola sent us some of their new quinoa flakes to try, there was no doubt in my mind what I was going to make with them.

Plus, almond milk is packed with good fats and cacao is choc-full (pun intended) of antioxidants, so all in all whilst it may look indulgent it’s a wonderfully healthy start to the day!

And with summer in London of course comes ice cream. The tinkling chimes of the capital’s ice cream vans have long been the soundtrack to our summers – they are quite literally the Pied Pipers of the common era, with children (and some adults, ahem Mr H) finding themselves subconsciously gravitating towards the noise in the hope of a Mr Whippy.
