Warm Cinnamon Breakfast Smoothie

Warm Cinnamon Breakfast Smoothie

If your patient enough to soak these oats in milk the night before, that 5 minutes of prep makes this recipe incredibly creamy. As a sufferer of anaemia, I love to add molasses as a sweetener because it provides a dose of iron. Aside from that, it’s reminiscent of gingerbread cookies, which needs no further explanation! So, good.

Everyone loves a good cookies, and these are no exception. Plus with no baking and only 4 ingredients, they are a breeze to put together. The only hard part is stopping yourself at one.

Charred Vegetables and Smokey Hummus

If you haven’t used liquid smoke before, you’re in for a real treat. You can find it at most speciality grocers, and it adds an amazing BBQ flavour to sauces, meats, soups and more. A little goes a long way. Great if you don’t have a BBQ to hand and end up doing these in the oven, like me in my little city apartment!

Did you know chickpeas are a great source of protein for vegans and veggies? They’re also great on the fibre front – so you can stay fuller for longer. WINNING.

Salted Maple Bananas

A twist on the classic barbecue dessert, this one is spiked with that amazing salty-sweet combo with the introduction of tamari almonds (YUM!) and a pinch ops sea salt, complimented by deliciously sweet maple syrup.

Kale + Mushroom Buckwheat Pancakes

Every morning I have the same debate at breakfast – sweet or savoury. It’s always a tough call right? This recipe ticks the pancake box, while being all kinds of deliciously savoury. It’s a win-win.

Quite possibly the best chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever taste, these mouthfuls of goodness are completely gluten, dairy and refined sugar free – replacing traditional ingredients with more nutritious ingredients. They give a boost to your daily fibre, protein and anti-oxidant intake, and keep your blood sugar levels happy too.

Black Sapote Trifle

Black Sapote Trifle

If you’ve never tried a black sapote, you’re missing out. A relative of the persimmon fruit, they are also known as chocolate pudding fruit, and don’t disappoint! They have four times as much vitamin C than an orange – great immune boosters when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Chocolate is just what the doctor ordered.

Matcha Greenola Bars

I love to start my day with a cup of matcha green tea. Giving you a morning boost with the rollercoaster of coffee, its an awesome way to get your energy and concentration levels up. Being a little bit obsessed with all matcha-related things, I whipped up these delish greenola these bars – a great morning or 3pm pick-me-up!

Native Wattleseed Ice-cream with Toasted Macadamias

Native Wattleseed Ice-cream with Toasted Macadamias

There’s a place in this world for healthy ice-cream. Dairy-free, sugar-free ice cream without a churner (because who owns one of those?!). While Gelato Messina (a Sydney Institution) makes my boyfriends top treat list, I literally get the shakes from the sugar content, syrups and moreish cookie pieces.

This is my answer to a cup of Messina, minus the medical issues. Packed with healthy fats and zero refined sugar to keep your tastebuds and waistline happy. Skip the wattle seed if you can’t lay your hands on it, and you’ll still get one hella-tasty coconut ice-cream.
