Mocha hazelnut milk – the best way to drink your coffee is in this from scratch hazelnut milk with chocolate and coffee! (Vegan/refined sugar free).
Have you ever tried making your own nut milk? It is easy to do, and while it does require some preparation as the nuts need to soak overnight, it results in a much creamier, more flavourful milk than those that you can buy at the store. You can also flavour it as you like, as I did here with this delicious mocha hazelnut milk. (more…)
Splenda margarita mix – a lower sugar version of a margarita. Post Sponsored by Splenda.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good cocktail, myself included; but they can be quite high in sugar. One of my favourites is a margarita, so today I am sharing Splenda’s recipe for a lower sugar margarita mix. (more…)
Thick, creamy vegan gingerbread hot chocolate – rich and lusciously thick vegan hot chocolate with gingerbread spices; refined sugar free.
The weather has been pretty grim recently – wet and cold and miserable. As such, I’ve been drinking rather a lot of hot chocolate in the evenings. I am usually happy to have a regular (almond) milk and hot chocolate mix one but occasionally I am in the mood for something a bit more decadent which is when I make this thick, creamy vegan gingerbread hot chocolate.

Boozy coffee milkshakes – get your caffeine, sugar and alcohol fixes all in one with this indulgent grown-up treat!
Ok so I guess I should really be posting a smoothie recipe right now, not an indulgent milkshake. This goes against the usual January healthy eating thing, as well as Dry January AND Veganuary (though actually it can be converted to vegan if needed); but you know what? I think that January could do with a little indulgence like a boozy coffee milkshake; it’s all about balance. And besides, these would be perfect for Valentine’s Day dessert, which will be here before we know it. (more…)
Witches’ finger cookies served with red velvet hot chocolate ‘blood’ make a spooktacular treat for Halloween!
This is my last Halloween post (for this year), I promise! These witches’ finger cookies are fun to make and very creepy looking, especially if you serve them with red velvet hot chocolate ‘blood’ for dipping them in! (more…)
I always feel like a bit of a cheat when I post a smoothie recipe because they are so simple that it almost feels wrong to even call it a recipe; I mean, the instructions are only one line long for goodness sake! Nevertheless, I having been making this chocolate berry smoothie a lot recently so thought that I would go ahead and share it as I like it so much. (more…)
I do love a long, leisurely breakfast spent scrolling through Instagram or Facebook, but the sad reality is that there often isn’t time to dawdle in the mornings; that is where this chocolate peanut butter banana breakfast smoothie comes in. It takes mere minutes to whip up, can easily be drunk on the go, is full of nutritious ingredients and fills you up nicely, making it a perfect option for busy mornings. (more…)

Are you prepared for Christmas yet? Most years I’m super organised and have all my gift shopping finished by now, but this year I haven’t bought a single thing yet and don’t even know what to get anyone. I have put my Christmas tree up though, I usually wait until about the 15th to decorate it but I wanted to use it as a backdrop for food photos so up it went! (With much complaining from my fiancé – he’s not big on Christmas). (more…)
