Last summer, our niece came to stay with us over Christmas. Being the good host that I was, I decided to use this opportunity gather some (brutally) honest 4-year-old feedback on a number of my recipes. These creamy chocolate popsicles, were a clear winner and can honestly say that I felt her pain when she had to “share” the last one with her Dad (tears all round). This delicious recipe is gluten free, dairy free and free from all refined sugars.
One of the quickest ways to satisfy a chocolate craving, only this dessert is rich in healthy fats, vitamin K, vitamin B6, biotin and folate. Better yet, no one will guess it’s healthy!
I’ve tried so many different variations of gluten free gingerbread biscuits and got frustrated when they would turn out either incredibly crumbly or flavourless; oh and don’t even get me started on making your own gluten free flour mix, who knew so many starches existed? So, I set out to make my own. The result? Nutritious and delicious GF Gingerbread that will satisfy the Christmas craving!
There’s nothing better than an ice-cold granita on a hot summer’s day; the only trouble is, so many of them are loaded with added sugar. As always, I set out to create my own and this 100% real food alternative is just as (if not more) delicious than the original.
Not only is Naked Treaties on my list of favourite foodie hangs in Byron Bay, they’re also taking Australia raw dessert scene by storm. Today I have the absolute pleasure of sitting down with their founder Jemma Gawned (Big Brother contestant 2001, AKA ‘Lip Gloss Queen’), to discuss all things business, raw desserts, health and course wellbeing.
Not to long ago I asked my sister to recipe test these ‘Taste like ‘Snickers’ Balls for me. She accepted the challenge and I didn’t expect to hear from her for a few days. At 9.45pm that very same night, I get a call from her. I immediately thought something was wrong (she never calls me that late). I answered the phone in a mild state of panic and before I could even get a word in, (with a mouthful of ‘Taste like Snickers Ball’) she says “Oh my god!! These snickers balls have changed my life!!!” and we burst into laughter. Today, this recipe is up on the blog for you to enjoy!
