Detox 'Nana Ice Cream

Detox ‘Nana Ice-Cream

When you need a frosty treat, there’s nothing guilty about this dessert. It’s hydrating (thanks to the sneaky cucumber), packed with potassium AND tastes delish. You can make it choc-chip by stirring in cacao nibs too, if you’re partial to cookie dough ice-cream (who isn’t?!). Spirulina is a rich vegetable protein, and is used widely to boost the immune system thanks to its plethora of vitamins and minerals. It is also said to detox the body of heavy metals – now that’s one hard-working dessert!

Cacao and Peppermint Trifle

Cacao and Peppermint Trifle

By the time Christmas rolls around in Australia it is 35 degrees and the traditional dishes in Europe are out of the question. Enter Christmas in July where you can enjoy all of the delicious Christmas foods without suffering heat exhaustion. Trifle is always a Christmas favourite. Some of the weird biscuit bases my mum used were pretty questionable, so I’ve skipped those, and the booze, to create a delicious dairy-free alternative that everyone can enjoy (including the kids).

Rhubarb + Apple Pie

Rhubarb + Apple Pie

Winter puddings aren’t complete without an apple pie of some sort. My mother-in-law would pick blackberries in the countryside, and put them in her apple pies. While I don’t have a blackberry bush around the corner, the sharpness of rhubarb compliments the sweet apples perfectly. Significantly less pastry than most pies, but deliciously satisfying all the same.

Blueberry Bliss Bowl

‘Tis the season for blueberries here in Aus. They’re in abundance and cheap until March, so I try to get my fill in the summer months when they’re at their tastiest and locally sourced. Aside from being once of the most nutrient dense fruits around, they make the most amazing ice-cream that can legit double up as a brekkie bowl when your post-Christmas sugar crash is looming. The natural sweetness they provide kills sugar cravings and their fibre keeps you fuller for longer too!

Teff is a gluten-free ancient grain, but the new kid on the block with health fans – fast gaining a reputation as a ‘superfood’ for it’s ease of use, versatility and nutrient density.

If you haven’t used it before, try it in this delicious breakfast crumble – it’s deliciously nutty in flavour and pairs well with almonds to make a crunchy topping to your morning bowl of goodness.

Summer Berry Porridge

Summer Berry Porridge

Sydney’s stores and farmer’s markets are brimming full of summer berries – YAY. Some of you will be able to buy berries all year long depending on where you live (not jealous at all). Regardless, make the best of these little jewels while they’re around. They all have so much to offer nutritionally – topping the charts in antioxidant power, protecting your body against inflammation and free radicals (those molecules that damage cells and organs). They’re also loaded with fibre which helps you to feel full and eat less (for those watching their weight).

This simple porridge showcases them perfectly and is packed with protein. A great post-workout brekkie, or perfect fuel for a long day at the office.
