You can’t beat a good BANANA flavoured dessert, especially when that dessert is a CHEESECAKE! I don’t think I’ve ever had a banana cheesecake before but I had no doubt banana would go well with cheesecake.
Sometimes all you need to lift your mood and energy is a nice, cold and refreshing smoothie! And what’s more refreshing than a tropical mango banana and coconut smoothie?Even the colour is bright and cheerful! Naturally sweet from the mango and banana with a hint of coconut.
The sun decided to come out today (yay!) so it’s the perfect opportunity to share this simple watermelon cucumber and mint salad. To me, those three ingredients define summer, especially watermelon! When combined, they make the perfect side salad or snack.
I never thought the day would come when I could say I make my own homemade chocolate, how could that even be possible? I was so impressed by the idea of making homemade chocolate using only 3 ingredients without the need for any fancy equipments or techniques. The basic recipe calls for:
Banana ice cream is by far the best, tastiest and healthiest way to cool down on a hot summer’s day, in my opinion. It’s so quick to make, given that you have bananas in your freezer which I make sure I always do during summer in anticipation for such scorching days, and it’s so creamy and delicious without any guilt whatsoever!
Hummus is something that I eat every single day without fail! I eat it on the side of main meals with salads and cooked vegetables, and it’s also one of my go-to snacks. I like to have some peeled chopped carrots in the fridge so when I’m feeling peckish, all I have to do is open the fridge, take out the hummus and carrots and devour! I also like to have it with rice cakes when I run out of carrot sticks and I’m too lazy to peel more!
Homemade almond milk is definitely way creamier and richer than the ones I’ve tried from the supermarket and the great thing about making your own is that you can make it as sweet as you like and add other flavours like cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate (like I’m doing in this recipe).
Would you believe me if I told you you can make healthy caramel slices without having to use flour, sugar, oil or butter? Not only can it be done, but they will be out of this world delicious! You won’t even be able to tell that it’s healthy!
This recipe is as easy as they get! You literally only need 3 main ingredients and then you can add whatever else you like. Chia seeds have very quickly become one of my pantry staples that I can’t live without! I’ve been using them particularly in baking as a substitute for eggs, especially when I’m looking for something denser and less spongy. I think chia eggs work so much better than flax eggs, does anyone else think that?
This smoothie tastes so so good, kind of like a chocolate milkshake! But all the ingredients will nourish and feed your body. The healthy carbs (from the banana) and protein (from the added protein powder) make it an excellent breakfast or post-workout meal.
