5-Ingredient Vegan Gingerbread Fudge

A simple no-bake and no-cook fudge made using healthier ingredients. These 5-ingredient vegan gingerbread fudge make for a lovely lighter treat to enjoy during the festive season, but also make a wonderful edible gift idea!    I made these chocolate dipped fudge squares last Christmas to take with me when I visited family members.

Vegan Cheese Cranberry Butternut Squash Wreath

A festive vegan recipe that everyone can enjoy. This vegan cheese cranberry butternut squash wreath is the perfect plant-based alternative or addition to your Christmas dinner table.  Whether you're a vegan or not, it's always a good idea to have a plant-based option on the Christmas table. Especially now that more and more people are choosing to eat less meat and include more plant-based meals.  A few years ago I was very strict with my diet. I refused to eat any meat, eggs, dairy or gluten. After a while it started to feel quite restrictive and difficult to maintain. I spent most of my time planning, researching recipes and checking product labels. It became increasingly obvious to me, and everyone [...]

Cauliflower & Chestnut Soup (Vegan & Gluten-free)

This cauliflower & chestnut soup is delicious & warming. Perfect to enjoy during the festive season or even as a starter on Christmas day. There's nothing more comforting than a warming bowl of soup on a freezing cold day. The past week has been so cold that I'm finding myself craving nothing but soup, tea and hot chocolate.  I don't know about you, but we still have another week before Christmas Day and I've already overindulged way too much. It's just too tempting not to want to try all the Christmas foods and treats that pop up in supermarkets shelves around this time of year. The cold weather isn't helping with my insatiable appetite either. I definitely notice I feel [...]

Gluten-free Cranberry White Chocolate Tart

If you're looking for a dessert centre piece to serve to guests this Christmas, you need to make this gluten-free cranberry white chocolate tart. It's so delicious, super indulgent and looks stunning too!  This may not be your typical traditional festive dessert like your mince pies or Christmas puddings, but it's certainly a crowed pleaser. It makes a nice change to the dried fruit packed desserts, which not everyone likes, or the chocolate based alternatives.  Made up of a simple shortcrust pastry base, a fruity cranberry jam layer, all topped with a silky white chocolate topping. A deliciously creamy treat that's perfect for the festive period. Especially when shared with loved ones. The tartness of the cranberry goes so well [...]

Vegan Gingerbread Bundt Cake

All I want for Christmas is a yummy slice of cake in one hand and a warming cup of tea in the other. This vegan gingerbread bundt cake is the perfect treat for this time of year. Packed with spices and so easy to make. I find that the best way to get into the festive spirit is to bake a gingerbread treat. It doesn't matter what it is, whether it's a gingerbread house, gingerbread biscuits, or a gingerbread cake. All will leave your house smelling like Christmas! The warming spices and smell of molasses is enough to leave anyone feeling jolly.  Gingerbread is always my first go-to festive flavour, with chocolate orange being a close second. It never fails [...]

Festive Pomegranate Kombucha Mocktail

Festive Pomegranate Kombucha Mocktail A delicious festive mocktail to get you into the spirit of Christmas without the alcohol! Although I don't drink, I am inclined to order a mocktail every now and then when I'm out to feel fancy and because I love the unusual flavour combinations.  Something I also love is kombucha! As a nutrition student, I know the potential benefits of kombucha and why most of us could really benefit from including it as well as other fermented foods into our diets. I've had really bad digestive issues for years and increasing probiotics as well as probiotic foods is one of the things that has really helped with my symptoms. There is a lot of research coming out looking into the gut [...]
