This is probably my last post before I turn 30. THIRTYYYYYY. Jay Z tells me ’30’s the new 20′, but isn’t that just what people say when they get older?! To drown my sorrows / celebrate, I’m eating ice cream. Lots of it. Because it’s sugar free, dairy free, and so damn fine. No churner required….who actually owns one of those?! Someone with too much storage, thats who.
The health world is currently green with envy over matcha powder. Shots of the drink were the “it beverage” at New York Fashion Week, and now even dedicated coffee lovers are ditching their morning cup in favour of this earthy tea. Green tea leaves are ground to a powder, meaning you ingest the tea leaves – giving you 137 x more antioxidants than traditional green tea. It’s also know as a mental booster and helps improve stamina. Sounds awesome right? It’s even better in ice-cream. Just sayin’….
We can all agree that it would be *awesome* if there was a healthy version of pizza out there. There’s just something about picking a multitude of toppings that gets me over-excited. While this one isn’t filled with melted cheese, it’s just as delicious (promise). It’s practically a fruit salad, which means you can have 4 slices of pizza and not feel ill. You will need a watermelon any then anything else lying in your fruit bowl or pantry – scarcely a recipe, but share-worthy all the same!
Admittedly this recipe takes a bit longer than my usual (unless you’re friends with Heston Blumenthal – in which case you can borrow some nitrogen to freeze the ice-cream). You have to believe me though, it’s totally worth the wait. Of course, you could cheat and buy some Chocolate Coyo ice-cream from the health food store, but where’s the fun in that?
This is salty, chewy, crunchy, sweet and chocolatey….all of which you need in your life. In one GIANT bowl.
Salt + caramel. Is there anything better? Actually, yes. A healthy version. This is one of my go-to breakfasts after an intense morning workout. It helps to replenish protein and glycogen stores and build lean muscle (which in turn burns calories – yay!). The Maca is gives the dish a toffee flavour, and works to alleviate anxiety and stress in the body. It’s also high in iron and is great for boosting energy – much needed on a Monday morning. Whip it up in under 2 minutes for a delicious dessert too.
For a wonderful crowd-pleasing dessert, fill happy tummies with one of these dairy-free creamy panna cottas and grab 10g protein while you’re at it. With plenty of aromatic fresh vanilla bean and zero sugar, this is one healthy re-invention you don’t want to miss.
The perfect dessert to warm your soul. Skip the traditional crumb of butter/sugar/flour and replace with these healthy alternatives to ensure you’re not left feeling bloated and guilty. Bonus: The added ginger will help to boost your metabolism!
These little pots of heaven are so simple to make. No baking and no whisking, just a little stir and you’ve created one light and tasty dessert. Perfect for summers on the terrace post-bbq, the zingy lemon is a great palate cleanser.
Honey and Lemon serve a much better purpose than just a cold remedy, dontcha know? This amazing flavour combo works as a delicious ‘cheesecake’ (minus the cheese) in this dairy and gluten free recipe. Perfect for a special occasion, or just a weekday – with ingredients to healthy, who needs an excuse?!
You would be forgiven for thinking this velvety smooth chocolate cream would wreak havoc with your clean eating goals. However, this guilt free alternative is actually full of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory mono-saturated fats. It’s versatile too: try it spread on your favourite toast, use as a clean cake frosting or even fruit dip. Teamed with a layer of simple cherry Chia Jam, this will become a new favourite for entertaining. Impressive, simple and downright delicious.
