Mornings have to be one of my favorite times of the day, especially when they involve pancakes! For the majority of the time, I tend to have easy stuff for breakfast, like smoothies, smoothie bowls, porridge or granola/muesli, but occasionally I’ll sneak in a “treat breakfast”, and recently it was these tasty Chocolate Banana Pancakes.
These pancakes are pretty easy to make. It’s just a matter of throwing all the ingredients into your blender or nutribullet, blending and then there you have it – perfect plant based pancake batter, ready to go. Continue reading
Coffee! One of the most popular drinks in the world. Most cannot start a day without it. When I’m out and about I tend to drink decaf, however a shot of caffeine every now and then is okay. I can definitely feel the effects of caffeine, maybe as I’ve become more sensitive to it.
To be honest, I never really feel that great after having a coffee – be it decaf or regular, yet in the moment it always seems like a good idea.
Recently I’ve been cutting out soy from my diet, so I’ve been having my decaf cappi’s with almond milk, which is pretty tasty! Although I still feel rather flat after drinking one, so I don’t have them too regularly.
But here, in this Chocolate Espresso No Bake Brownie recipe, I decided to use full caffeine coffee for the intense flavor. That, and the fact that Nick’s coffee machine makes a pretty darn good espresso! 🙂 Continue reading

A recipe that’ll leave your saliva glands working on over time. A recipe that’ll keep you coming back for more…. I’m sure by now you get the picture. Continue reading
I love everything coconut. From coconut oil to coconut water to freshly cracked whole coconuts! I’m Loco for Coco!!! These delicious Coco-Choc Bounty Tarts have to be one of my favorite recipes! They are so decadent, and the combination of chocolate and coconut is insanely scrumptious! With the added sweet nutty base, these tarts are like the average bounty bars (minus the bad stuff, loaded with good stuff) and taken to a whole other level!
Oh! My! Goodness! Who knew you could create the most amazing textured, gooey brownies with … wait for it … BLACK BEANS!!!!! It’s insane! But soooooo good!!!! Now I must say, I am definitely one for trying out crazy combinations and crazy ingredients, and this one just hit the nail on the head! This could be, possibly, one of my favorite recipes to date! Yes, it’s that good!
Call me crazy, but I get so excited when I discover new and brilliant uses for simple ingredients, such as black beans. From adding beetroot and other root vegetables to healthy treats, to using frozen bananas to create the most creamiest delicious (dairy free and sugar free) ice cream, to using the water in canned chickpeas for making vegan ‘whipped cream’ seems like total madness, but it works!!!!

I absolutely love how versatile frozen berries are. They’re a must in every health conscious person’s freezer, as you can whip them into something delicious, in a short space of time.
For me, I love how they transform a regular chocolate smoothie into a drink bursting with flavor.
This smoothie is a quick and delicious treat, as a mid-morning or afternoon snack to raise energy levels, and to satisfy a sweet tooth.
