Coyo’s Brand New Look & Recipe Ideas

Last year I had the pleasure of receiving a selection of Coyo’s deliciously creamy, dairy-free and vegan friendly coconut yogurts: Handcrafted from the squeezed flesh of the coconut, Coyo yogurts contain five plant-fed vegan cultures to produce the velvety smooth texture without the need to add any sweeteners or preservatives – just simple, whole ingredients. […]

Banana, Chocolate & Salted Caramel Puddings

If you’re looking for a delicious, rich, indulgent and vegan / dairy-free caramel sauce, your dreams have now come true thanks to Wing Yip. The UK’s leading Oriental supermarket have just launched a Coconut Caramel Sauce made with creamy coconut milk, the third addition to the recently launched range of coconut products from Nature’s Charm. […]

Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Jam Tartlets

Back with another recipe using one of my favourite store cupboard essentials for healthy, gluten-free baking: Tiger Nut flour! As a whole, tiger nuts, are 100% gluten-free, organic, nut-free (ironically), dairy-free, low in calories and fats and ideal for those on a paleo diet. What’s more, because they have so much fibre they make you […]

Mocha Caramel Chia Pudding Delight

This month I thought I’d celebrate the warmer weather, sunnier and lighter days with this special Percol Coffee creation. Ideal served as a filling breakfast or dessert, a super easy coffee-infused oat and chia pudding is accompanied by a delicious, creamy chocolate ‘ice cream’ (made from frozen bananas – you’d never guess!), served with a […]

Alpro Go On: Pea & Mint Soup Recipe

I’ve been a big fan of Alpro products for a while, especially their plant-based alternatives to yogurt. If you haven’t heard about or seen it in the shops, the brand have just launched the new Plain Big Pot which has a delicious super thick, smooth texture – making it a tasty and high protein addition […]

Goodlife: Making Vegetables the Star of the Show

Ahhhh, vegetables. From sweet potatoes and carrots to courgettes, tomatoes, peppers and aubergines, I love pretty much all varieties (although sprouts will NEVER be included, soz!). It can be so easy to transform them into delicious, creative and interesting dishes but for some of us, veggies can appear to be dull, boring or unadventurous. That’s […]

Not-So-Indulgent Chocolate Easter Cake

I think out of all the Easter-themed recipes I have created and posted on my blog recently, this is my favourite Easter #IndulgingInnocently creation. To coincide with International Sweet Potato Week (from 1st – 13th April) in collaboration with American Sweet Potatoes (you may have seen my other recipes over here) I’ve created a wonderfully delicious […]

Vegan Cream Eggs

One of my challenges was to try and re-create a healthy kind of Cream Egg alternative this Easter. Although what I created was slightly different to what I envisaged, I was actually pretty happy with how these delicious treats turned out. They are frozen little goodies rather than a chocolate shell encasing a gooey centre, […]

Rocky Road Easter Slice

For those of you who love a bit more of a treat, this a slightly more indulgent recipe for Easter – a twist on the classic Rocky Road. Using Jim Jam’s incredible no added sugar chocolate spread to combine a mixture of oats, fruits and nuts plus the added special Mini Eggs, this would make […]

It’s Pepper Time Smoothie Challenge

I’m always up for a challenge – especially when it comes to food – so when I received an email about getting involved in It’s Pepper Time’s Smoothie Challenge I thought, why the hell not? An EU-funded initiative, It’s Pepper Time aims to promote the use of peppers in everyday recipes and meals. Deliciously sweet, […]
