When you think of Nutella, you think ‘hazelnut+cocoa’, but when you look at the ingredients a typical jar is made up of only 13% hazelnuts! In fact, the first 2 ingredients are sugar and oil! That’s not to say you cannot enjoy it from time to time as part of a balanced diet, but if you want to eat it on a daily basis, why not make you own healthy version that tastes equally as good!

Vegan Gluten-free Wagon Wheels Wagon Wheels – another classic British treat I just had to recreate. Do you sense a theme here? It seems I’m drawn to making healthified, vegan and gluten-free versions of some of Britain’s favourite treats at the moment.

Matcha Blueberry Smoothie While everyone was on some sort of juicing diet to help ‘detoxify’ their bodies in January, I was still here sipping on smoothies.
