Healthy Coconut and Cinnamon Bites

20141122203432(1)

Happy Halloween everyone!
These coconut and cinnamon bites are so yummy!
It will take you minutes to blend and then they need to set in the fridge for about 40 minutes.
So simple and so quick!
I will also make them for Christmas as the cinnamon makes it a perfect yule treat!

Raw Choco Smoothie Bowl

20141003202118(2)

As I did the school run this morning some beautiful red and orange leaves dropped down on my head reminding me that even though it’s warm and a long time until I have to get out the cashmere, autumn is here.
I have to say I love it!
Autumn in London is gentle and gorgeous, and soon it’s Halloween which is so much fun in my neighbourhood!
This weeks recipe is a chocolate smoothie bowl full of goodness and beautifying avocado and acai powder.
Great as a filling breakfast or healthy pudding.
It’s also perfect for hiding avocado from picky eaters!
Hope you like it!

Healthy Guilt-free Frappuccino (vegan)

20140705163824(3)I absolutely adore Coffee Frappuccino’s ever since I had my very first Ice-blended coffee at The Coffe Bean in Beverly Hills 1994.
I was working on a documentary with a less than uplifting subject, and sipping on this in the early morning sunshine as I watched the city come to life just made my time in LA very special.
Ice cream have always been my comfort food of choice , I guess I need to cool down…
The above recipe is my healthy version of  an ice-blended drink and It’s super yummy!!
I use dandelion as a coffee substitute, it’s good for the digestion it supports important liver function.
Hope you like it!

Creamy Strawberry Dessert

20140323185038(1)

I’m sure you all know how incredible healthy chia seeds are: full of omega 3, minerals like calcium and manganese and lots of fab fibre. .
And if you like me have fussy eaters in the house, who don’t like the texture of the seeds as they expand (I know! how can you not love it! well a small child I know says it reminds him of eating fish-eyes) this is the perfect recipe.
It tastes just like a gorgeous bog-standard strawberry and cream pudding, the secret super-ingredient can not be detected :).
The trick is to bled the seeds to oblivion!
And don’t worry all the goodness is still intact.

Raw Energy Balls

20140225190244(3)

It’s so hard not to eat these raw energy balls in one go!
But I do try to share since they are filled with goodness like chia seeds, sunflower seeds, tahini and plant protein.
They are a godsend when you are longing for something sweet and satisfying and you need it quickly!
No cooking or machinery is needed it literally takes 3 minutes and if you are desperate forget about the fridge part!
