Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

It’s so important to teach kids to cook. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Making a super healthy chocolate ice-cream is a great start. Most work is done by the blender but they still feel super good about themselves having made an insanely delicious and nutritious ice cream!
I had my older one baking bread the other week. He ate with gusto. I’m pretty sure he would have turned his nose up if  had made it 🙂

For this vegan super easy chocolate ice cream, without added sugar, you need the following ingredients:

Chocolate and Banana Ice Cream 
– 3 chopped up frozen bananas
– 3 tablespoons cacao
– 3/4 cup rice milk or almond milk
– vanilla pod or vanilla extract
– pinch of sea salt

Put everything in a blender. You might have to add a tiny bit more liquid. Serve straight away.

Enjoy!

Vegan Salted Caramel Sauce

I’m not going to lie. This is not a super healthy treat. But it’s so much better for you then the bog standard shop-bought salted caramel sauce.We love it on pancakes as a special treat. Is gorgeous on cake, ice cream or just straight from the jar. Coconut sugar is still sugar so if you are on a strict no sugar diet this is not for you. But if you want something sweet, coconut sugar is a better choice than ordinary white sugar. It contains minerals like iron zinc potassium and some calcium which may offer some health benefit.
Hope you like it!

Vegan Salted Caramel Sauce
Ingredients:
– 1 Tin of full fat coconut milk 400ml
– coconut sugar 1/2 Cup
–  1/2  teaspoon vanilla powder
–  1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Orange Chia Breakfast

 

20141228180113(1)

Hi there!
The party season has totally kicked in and I feel I’m out drinking and celebrating most nights!
I have far more Christmas partys and drinks to go to now that I have two kids in school then when I was young free and single, but I’m not complaining it’s all great fun!
During the festive period I really make sure my breakfasts are super healthy and filling to counter out what happens later in the day… and this is one of my absolute favorite breakfasts.
So orangy and delicious I hope you like it!

Raw Vegan Raspberry and Vanilla Yoghurt

20141228171044(1)

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
This raw vegan yoghurt recipe is totally yum!
It needs a bit of preparation as you have to soak your nuts and then the mixture needs to ferment overnight, but I promise you it’s all worth it!
Now I’m off to help Santa with his purchases in The Chelsea FC Megastore.
I love it that my 8 year old still believes in Father Christmas and his little helpers and I’m more than happy to get him all that he wants, like the soft bearded Diego Costa (a player in Chelsea) so not yum… but I like that it’s not all tech on his list.
