Easy vegan lemon curd recipe - egg and dairy free lemon curd that is sweet, creamy, intensely lemony, totally addictive and ready in under ten minutes!

I first made this lemon curd some time ago now to fill my vegan lemon curd layer cake, but I felt like it deserved it’s own recipe post. Recently Damian has been trying to cut down on dairy as it isn’t very good for his stomach (a problem that a lot of people have I think), so I have been trying to join him. Seeing as I am already vegetarian (occasionally pescatarian), this has meant that I have been making a lot more vegan recipes so expect to see more of them on here! (more…)

Chocolate berry smoothie - a rich, chocolatey smoothie that feels like you are drinking dessert but is totally healthy!

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…)

Roasted red pepper and chili hummus with home-made seasoned pitta chips. Easy to make and the perfect snack!

I adore hummus, and always have done. One of my favourite lunches is a pot of hummus with some crusty bread and vegetable sticks for dipping, I will happily eat the entire tub in one sitting. While I do often buy hummus (I’m lazy), it is so quick and easy to make your own and that way you can control the flavours to get the balance of lemon, garlic and olive oil that suits you. (more…)

Vegan Roasted Banana Ice Cream With Rum Coconut Caramel Swirl & June 2016 Degustabox Review

Vegan roasted banana ice cream with rum coconut caramel swirlI absolutely could never, and would never, go vegan. This is for two main reasons, those being cheese, and ice cream; which are probably my favourite food groups (don’t try telling me that vegan “cheese” is any kind of substitute for the real stuff). That being said, I do occasionally make a vegan recipe, more out of necessity than on purpose – because I’ve run out of eggs for example. In the case of this vegan roasted banana ice cream, I had some bananas that needed to be used up and fancied making ice cream with them but didn’t have any cream in the house; I did however have a tin of coconut milk; so there you go, accidental vegan ice cream.
