Have you ever tried making your own energy balls? It’s so easy! You simply throw all the ingredients in a food processor, whizz for a few seconds then shape the mixture into balls. It couldn’t easier!
What I especially love about these balls is that they taste decadent, yet they’re packed full of nutrient-rich ingredients that are not only going to increase our energy levels, but also boost our health in general. Each ball is filled with protein, heart-healthy fats, complex carbs, fibre, plus a whole host of minerals and antioxidant compounds. It’s amazing just how much goodness you can fit into one little ball!

In today’s post, I’m sharing a recipe for a delicious Indian curry that’s simple to prepare and ready in just 30 minutes. It’s budget friendly too, costing less than £1 per portion. It’s mild enough to serve to all family members and contains an abundance of nutrients to keep them in tip-top condition, including plenty of protein, complex carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It’s proven to be a winner with my family and we hope you enjoy it too!

Each year, for my mum’s birthday in May, I love to challenge myself to create a new vegan cake for her. This tradition started back in 2013, when I made my first ever vegan Lemon Drizzle Cake (and, to this day, that cake remains one of the most popular recipes on my blog!!) For this year’s birthday, I decided to attempt a Coffee and Walnut Cake. It’s an oldie but a goodie (and one of my personal favourites!)
And my mum’s verdict?

In the hot summer months, nothing beats a cooling bowl of ice cream smoothie for breakfast. It might sound a bit indulgent to eat ice cream for breakfast, however this is no ordinary dairy and sugar-laden ice cream. The base is a blend of frozen banana and plant milk that magically transforms into the creamiest, smoothest soft serve. This is one ice cream that you can indulge in to your heart’s content!
As well as a great warm weather breakfast option, this ice cream smoothie bowl also makes a delicious post-school and exercise snack.

Today I’d like to share another one of my family’s current favourite dishes – Moroccan Fruity Couscous. This is such a pretty dish, full of flavour and ready in just 20 minutes!
It makes a lovely summer weekend lunch or speedy weeknight supper. It’s equally delicious served hot or cold, making it perfect for al fresco dining, picnics and buffets. As a main meal, we love to serve it with strips of warm pitta or garlic bread, some baby salad leaves and a large dollop of hummus. Moroccan-spiced or roasted red pepper hummus is especially good!
