When you wake up on your birthday to flourless banana pancakes drizzled with raspberries and maple syrup, you know you are loved. These fun and delicious pancakes are quick 'n easy to make and are absolutely delicious!   Ingredients (Makes 8 small pancakes) 2 ripe...

Protein Flapjacks

It's my baby boy's 5th birthday today! The day started early with many hours of Lego building before he requested his favourite breakfast ... FLAPJACKS! These can be whipped up in a flash, and smothered in berries, fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup. Ingredients...

Chia Chocolate Mousse

If a rich creamy chocolate mousse is your kind of dessert (or breakfast) then you're gonna love this one! It sure tastes even better than the real thing! I have posted a few chia pudding recipes but this one is undoubtedly the best I've tried! The secret? Blend the...

Juices & Smoothies

Banana & Peanut Butter Smoothie

  It must be an age thing, but up until now my 7 year old would pull up his nose to anything green. Understandably. It's an acquired taste, right?  Lately, his love for very green basil pesto (which was a surprise) led me to attempt a green smoothie for breakfast....

Beetroot smoothie bowl

  I am honestly crazy about this smoothie bowl. I go to bed at night dreaming about it. I wake up thinking about it. The flavours burst forth with every mouthful. The crunch of the toasted coconut chips and the gooey tart goji berries create such a taste explosion....

Carrot Juice

Errr, what's up doc? My morning begins with either a fresh veggie juice or a smoothie. After getting a juicer for Christmas I've been experimenting with different juices and boy am I enjoying it! One of my staples is carrot Juice. Carrots are naturally sweet and the...

Main Meals

Heirloom tomato & walnut tart I vegan, gluten-free

Growing up my mom often made us a tomato tart that goes down in history as the most tasty tart I've eaten! I have the recipe in an old family recipe book, but I know it's not even worth getting out and trying to replicate it, as there are so many ingredients I won't...

Vegan Bolognese

The most common question I get asked is 'how do you get your kids to eat plant-based meals?' We are doing it slowly. One meal at a time. This versatile plant-based bolognese is simple to make, free of grains and legumes, full of flavour and tastes like traditional...

The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread

This is it! Probably one of the most delicious breads I've tasted! This vegan-friendly, whole-grain, gluten-free, no-knead, no-mess 'life-changing loaf of bread' has been doing the rounds on social media for some time now and I knew I just had to try it...

Sweet Treats & Desserts

Healthy Vegan Buckeyes with Popped Quinoa

You want to hear the story of how these delights came about? So, we were invited to a vegan bake-sale picnic in De Waal Park in Cape Town. Why have I never been there before? A serene and green park amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Sunshine, shady trees,...

Vegan Fudgy Choc Chip Blondies

Blondie bars often pop up on my social media feeds, but either they aren’t popular in South Africa or some how I have been missing out on these beauties for years! Blonde moment, but I admit I had to ask google why these gooey, fudgy bars are in fact called Blondies....

Snacks

Raw Apple, Ginger & Cinnamon Date Bites

I love that Woolworths stores have cleared out the tempting junk food from the checkout queues, and replaced the shelves with healthier options. Knowing the prices of good nutritious ingredients I can so relate to the high price tag that comes with the healthy snacks,...

Strawberry Ice Lollies

  My boys have such different tastes. I really shouldn't ask questions like these, but when I ask the boys which flavour ice lolly they want me to make I get two very different answers. Judah, my youngest, yells 'MANGO please' and Oscar, my oldest, yells 'STRAWBERRY!'...

Mango Ice Lollies

  Who says ice lollies are for kids? My husband has been begging me to make ice lollies for so long now, and although it is the start of winter (and with one of the biggest storms about to hit in centuries) I finally gave in. With frozen mango in the freezer, I went...

Sauces & Dips

Vegan Creamy Herb Salad Dressing

A salad needs to be dressed to impress! Before I went plant-based I made the most delicious creamy herb salad dressing made with cream cheese. With summer in full swing it means a lot more salads on the lunch and dinner table, so a non-dairy salad dressing is vital to...

Healthy Tomato Sauce

When you think hot chips, you think tomato sauce, right? Hot chips and tomato sauce (or fries and ketchup) go hand-in-hand, so when you perfect the recipe for polenta chips, you know you have to take it one step further and make homemade tomato sauce. A follower of...

Beetroot Hummus Dip

I thought the taste of beetroot would overpower the flavours of the classic hummus, but my boys and I agree we much prefer the slightly sweeter taste of beetroot hummus. The hot pink colour makes a bright addition to any plate or rainbow bowl, and is a delicious...

Drinks

Black Lemonade with activated charcoal

I've been so fascinated with this dark and mysterious drink that I had to give it a go and see if it's all that it's made out to be. Black Lemonade gets it's colour from activated charcoal. Together with freshly squeezed lemon juice, water and sweetener, black...

Homemade Coconut Milk

So simple! So quick! And so cost effective! My boys LOVE helping me make coconut milk. Their best part is squeeeeezing the milk through the nut milk bag. They say it’s like milking a cow. I have a habit of reading the list of ingredients on labels. I was horrified to...

Rooibos Iced Tea

Afternoon tea anyone? To most folk, afternoon tea is a cup of hot Earl Grey tea and scones topped with lashings of jam and clotted cream. In all honesty I do love an indulgent afternoon tea, but with temperatures reaching 30 degrees, it is an ice-cold thirst-quenching...

Body & Home

Natural Skin Regime

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine using food on my face! Walking back and forth from the kitchen to the bathroom, carrying the honey jar, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and brown sugar, my boys glare at me with a confused look. I simply smile and say, 'see...

Chocolate Body Scrub

With winter in full swing, it's all about layers! But there is one layer we tend to forget about ... our skin. Cacao is becoming popular in the beauty trade for it's antioxidant properties, fighting free radicals which prematurely age your skin. Epsom Salts needs no...
