Rosemary Citrus Drink

This is a sparkly, tangy drink, great for autumn or winter. Fresh rosemary gives it a flavourful twist. People always ask for the recipe.

Chia ‘Cheesecake in a glass’ Pudding

We all enjoyed this delicious creamy chia dessert at our mid-year Youth Space dinner. Themed on a cheesecake but served in a glass, it looks good, tastes good and is loaded with nutritional goodness – including lots of minerals, omega 3s, fibre, good fats & protein. There’s no cooking (apart from lightly toasting some slivered almonds to…

Bircher Muesli

Sometimes the simplest things really are the best! This simple breakfast takes around 5-10 mins to prepare the night before, and is hearty, nutritious and yummy. It boasts the goodness of chia seeds, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds along with almonds, oats and coconut cream. Chia seeds and flax seeds absorb liquid and become jelly-like, which makes the…

Raspberry Coconut Mousse

Hello friends, a sweet (but not too sweet) treat that looks stunning for your special occasion, but is very simple to make 🙂 To get maximum impact you will need some nice looking glasses (not too big is good), some baby mint leaves (raid a garden) and a piping bag with a large star nozzle…

Organic Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Vegan Cheesecake

Okay, so this must be cheesecake week! My daughter and I made four different cheesecakes on Sunday, and another 3 cheesecakes on Monday…and this one was my favourite 🙂 (The strawberry one was pretty much equal favourite, we’ll put that up soon too.) These “cheesecakes” actually have no cheese, or dairy, they are made with…

Waffles for Breakfast!

Once you have a good waffle iron the rest is simple. The basic recipe is this: freshly ground flour from a grain or your choice, ground seeds/nuts, salt, water. The…

Carob Mud Cake

Here’s a rich, chocolatey dessert that will satisfy. The concept originally inspired by Petite Kitchen’s Vegan Dark Chocolate Torte, we have replaced the dark vegan chocolate with the ingredients of vegan carob chocolate (cocoa butter, rapadura, carob powder, soy milk powder), reducing the cost considerably and removing all caffeine. We also changed the “icing” into a…

Persimmon Icecream

It’s amazing how delicious persimmons are, and how few people are familiar with them! A winter fruit which is a great source of vitamin C, they look stunning and taste delicious. But even fewer people are familiar with persimmon icecream. This icecream is a must-try. Fast. Convenient. Apricot-coloured. No sugar. Tasty.

Almond Cream Cheesecake

This recipe is a little more complicated, as there are 4 layers, but it is all worth it, I promise! The layers are: The base which is a simple gluten-free pastry that is rolled out and baked in the oven. Melted carob chocolate which is brushed over the base to seal it, and keep it…

Carob Hazelnut Cheesecake

Wow! An amazing vegan, raw, delicious, satisfying, “cheese”cake. Recipe coming soon… This cake is very large, makes 16 good sized slices. Use a good, large knife for slicing as the cake is quite firm. Great with either an orange or raspberry jelly on top and splashes of carob chocolate. Alternatively, if you are just in…
