Mango and Strawberry Nice Cream

Recipes (5)As we ease into the New Year, I thought a nice and simple deliciously healthy ‘nice’ cream recipe would be most fitting. Something satisfying and really easy to make! We’re all slowly getting back into the swing of things, and complicated food recipes just won’t cut it. Continue reading

Banana Millet Porrdige

If you hadn’t already noticed, I’m a massive fan of porridge. This vegan Banana Millet Porridge recipe definitely hits the spot! There’s nothing quite so comforting as a warm, delicious bowl of porridge on chilly winters mornings, and boy! have we had a few of those here in Nelson, NZ. Opening the curtains to see the heavy snow capped mountains in the distance is my que to get the stove on and get cracking with a bowl of nourishing porridge.

Vegan Banana Millet Porridge Recipe.8

My previous porridge post was Breakfast Banana Oats which is a delicious and satisfying recipe, but due to the gluten content on oats, I don’t get into the habit of eating oats too often, well I try not to anyway 😉 I, myself, don’t have any major reactions to gluten, but aside from oats, I tend to keep a gluten free diet. I can definitely feel a difference when I eat something with gluten in it, so for this reason I steer clear of it, with the exception of oats 😉 Continue reading

Banana Breakfast Oats

Breakfast has to be one of my favorite meals of the day! And I’ll admit, I am such a creature of habit, and tend to have a handful of breakfast recipes which I juggle and alternate from. Obviously making them each unique with various different toppings, or what ever is in hands reach in the cupboard. Now, in South Africa I used to frequently buy gluten (wheat) free oats, but am battling to find them here in Nelson. I don’t have a gluten sensitivity, but I choose not to eat gluten containing foods often as I know the health implications. That being said my diet is pretty much gluten free, aside from oats (organic) every now and then. This breakfast oats recipe is one of my all time favorites!!!

Breakfast Chia Jar

A breakfast jar is the perfect option if you’re rushed most mornings, tend to skip breakfast for lack of time, or just enjoy to have the reach and eat option first thing in the morning. By preparing this jar the night before, it’ll be ready in the morning for you to just grab and munch! So easy, so delicious and so fulling! 

Breakfast Chia Jar 1

This recipe is so so tasty, and is really versatile too, so you can add ingredients that suit your taste. In this jar I’ve used banana and golden kiwi fruit to sweeten it, but you can really add what ever fruits you like. I’m thinking of maybe doing a breakfast jar series, with different recipes, so let me know if you’d be keen to see more like this. Continue reading

Ginger & Apple Granola

This recipe is just a slightly updated recipe to my previous Homemade Muesli recipe, which you can find here. I think breakfast has to be one of my favorite meals of the day. I always look forward to it, and this breakfast granola is one of the best!

Recipes (1)

This recipe has similar ingredients, but with a few tweaked additions. Firstly I added a bunch of fresh grated ginger, which lifts the flavor to high heights. I love the taste of ginger, especially when it’s mixed with cinnamon. Ginger is such a great digestion aid, so it’s perfect to get this in your belly at the beginning of the day. Continue reading

Coconut Chia and Banana Passion Fruit Breakfast Bowl

A couple of posts ago, you’d see our Adventure to Picton, New Zealand, and on this adventure we managed to find a massive stretch of Banana Passion Fruit vines. Now while we were there, there weren’t many to be found, ripe and on the ground. We did, however, find a few and I at least got to taste this delicious fruit for the first time. One of my lovely friends, Lee-Anne, then gave me a bag of them that our trusty tour guide had managed to collect on a trip back up to Picton the following day. The big rainfall from the previous night had helped bring these little gems down to the ground, for us 🙂

With an abundance of these tasty little morsels, I pondered what I could create. A Chia breakfast bowl was the winning thought, and the result was simply scrumptious
