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 I 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.
Time to boost your good bacteria with an easy ferment!
I mix bog standard white cabbage with a couple of table spoons of Laoganma black bean chili sauce. A Sichuan style condiment full of umami flavour. The result is quite special and I’m completely obsessed !
Adding fermented foods before going to foreign lands can be a great insurance against holiday tummy. I also bring a good probiotic as an extra precaution.

– 1-2 cups of sweetcorn
– halloumi cheese, dairy or vegan
– handfull of fresh mint leaves
– 2 tablespoons chopped spring unions, the green bits
– olive oil
Finally a new video!

– 1 cup coconut yoghurt
– 1 tablespoon honey
Directions: Put everything in a high speed blender. Serve.
As everyone knows juicing is a great short cut to better health. I use my trusted old cheap juicer from Philips most mornings. My to go to juices contain lots of vegetables, lemon and cucumber and just a tiny bit of apple or orange to balance the taste. I don’t like those sweet juices with vegetables only as an afterthought. When out an about in London I can recommend Dulce Verde No1 from Daily Dose. It’s exactly my cup of juice. A mix of cucumber, apple, kale, lemon and mint. So refreshing!
The juice bar is in Matt Roberts gym on 16 Berkeley Street in Mayfair.
Good Morning from the breakfast table! A long lazy weekend feast or a quickie before you rush out and seize the day. Breakfast really sets you up for the day. I have to admit I’m not a big breakfast eater unless I’m in a hotel or later in the day, so it has to taste good and it has to be nutritious.
With kids in school I’m obsessed with giving them a healthy start as I have no idea what they will be eating during the day.
Below are a few of my favorite breakfast recipes. They work equally well for a long lazy weekend feast as a quick breakfast on the go (with some prep).
My first tip because the kids love it is SPROUTED & DEHYDRATED GRANOLA. Gluten and nut free and vegan. A refreshing start to the day! You’ll find the recipe here (click!)
This Orange Chia Breakfast is so juicy! Recipe here (click)
Strawberry Bircher! Easy to prepp the night before and so summery and filling at the same time! Recipe here (click!)
Who doesn’t love chocolate and raspberries! This is always a hit and no one suspects they are eating avocado 😉 Recipe here (click!)
Caramel Flavored and light. A mix of carob, chia and banana. Yum yum!
