Vegan Tofu Tiramisu If you’re trying to follow a plant-based diet that minimises the amount of animal products you eat, or if you’re trying to eat healthier, then treating yourself to Tiramisu doesn’t seem to be a viable option. Typically made with cream, mascarpone cheese, white sugar and lady fingers. None of those things scream health to me, definitely indulgence, not health.  …

Chocolate Covered Almond Coconut Flapjacks This is my first ever flapjack recipe!  EVER!! Can you believe it? How have I been blogging for this long without making flapjacks before?

Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches This is my first ice cream recipe this summer. Can you believe it?! Why has it taken me so long to finally get my act together and create an ice-cream recipe?

Black Bean Avocado & Mango Tacos I’ve always found avocado and mango to be such an excellent combination. The rich texture and buttery taste of the avocado complements the complex sweetness of the mango so well! I usually combine them in salads like I did in my kale, mango and avocado salad.  Another thing that goes well with avocados is beans! …
