I’m pleased to report that summer has finally arrived here in Bath. Hooray! And when the temperature’s soaring, I like nothing more than starting the day with a cooling bowl of ice cream. Yes, ice cream for breakfast. Now we’re talking!
However, this is no ordinary dairy, sugar laden ice cream, but one made with nutrient rich bananas ♥ When frozen then blended, bananas transform into the most delicious, creamy ice cream. And it’s super healthy, so you can indulge in it to your heart’s content.
The recipe I’m sharing today is for a chocolate-flavoured banana ice cream bowl. Chocolate porridge, chocolate overnight oats, chocolate waffles, chocolate banana ice cream… rarely does a day pass where I don’t eat chocolate for breakfast in some shape or form! Continue reading
For this month’s entry to the Suma Blogger’s Network, I’m sharing a recipe for one of my all-time favourite snacks – Chocolate Rose Energy Balls ♥ They taste more like a decadent treat than a snack, yet they’re packed with nutrient-rich energy-fuelling ingredients.
Filled with wholegrain oats, nuts, dates and cacao, each ball provides a healthy does of protein, heart-healthy fats, slow release carbs, as well as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are really satiating, so I find that just one is enough to fill me whenever I need an energy boost or afternoon snack.
They’re easily portable, so perfect for stashing in backpacks for day trips and bike rides. They also make a great after school snack. Lil’ L loves them! Continue reading
Shrove Tuesday (‘Pancake Day’) is arriving early this year. It’s actually next Tuesday…. February 9th! And if you’re new to veganism, or just fancy trying something a little different, I have my top five vegan pancake recipes to share with you. They’re super easy to make and use basic pantry staples that you’re bound to have on hand. Since they’re vegan, they’re suitable for anyone with dairy or egg allergies. They can also be made gluten free.
So let’s kick off with my number one favourite pancake for Shrove Tuesday – the Vegan Crêpe ♥
A huge fan of crêpes, Lil’ L declared that he loves this vegan version as much as he loves the crêpes he eats in France. Endorsements don’t come much bigger than that!
When it comes to weekend treat breakfasts, waffles are a firm family favourite. They are so easy to make and take very little time to prepare. We love experimenting with different ingredients and flavour combinations. I’ve already posted recipes for our Easy Vegan Waffles and Gingerbread Waffles and today, we’re sharing the recipe for our quick and easy Chocolate Waffles.
These waffles have a decadent dark chocolate flavour, which works in perfect harmony with the nutty, berry toppings. Continue reading
In today’s post, I’m sharing recipes for a delicious, quick and easy strawberry jam and ‘treat snack’ that the family has been loving lately: No Bake Strawberry Tarts ♥
But before I do so, there’s an occasion that I must mark on this blog – Lil’ L’s first strawberry picking outing. I’d been dreaming about this moment for years.
