This Lime and Rose dessert is so good!
I love love love to use rose in puddings, well in actually  everything I can get away with.
This is also the perfect way to hide avocados for the kids as they think (well the little one does) that the green colour comes from the limes.

– 3 avocados

Orange Chia Breakfast

 

20141228180113(1)

Hi there!
The party season has totally kicked in and I feel I’m out drinking and celebrating most nights!
I have far more Christmas partys and drinks to go to now that I have two kids in school then when I was young free and single, but I’m not complaining it’s all great fun!
During the festive period I really make sure my breakfasts are super healthy and filling to counter out what happens later in the day… and this is one of my absolute favorite breakfasts.
So orangy and delicious I hope you like it!

Raw Vegan Raspberry and Vanilla Yoghurt

20141228171044(1)

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
This raw vegan yoghurt recipe is totally yum!
It needs a bit of preparation as you have to soak your nuts and then the mixture needs to ferment overnight, but I promise you it’s all worth it!
Now I’m off to help Santa with his purchases in The Chelsea FC Megastore.
I love it that my 8 year old still believes in Father Christmas and his little helpers and I’m more than happy to get him all that he wants, like the soft bearded Diego Costa (a player in Chelsea) so not yum… but I like that it’s not all tech on his list.

20141122203432(1)

Happy Halloween everyone!
These coconut and cinnamon bites are so yummy!
It will take you minutes to blend and then they need to set in the fridge for about 40 minutes.
So simple and so quick!
I will also make them for Christmas as the cinnamon makes it a perfect yule treat!

Raw Choco Smoothie Bowl

20141003202118(2)

As I did the school run this morning some beautiful red and orange leaves dropped down on my head reminding me that even though it’s warm and a long time until I have to get out the cashmere, autumn is here.
I have to say I love it!
Autumn in London is gentle and gorgeous, and soon it’s Halloween which is so much fun in my neighbourhood!
This weeks recipe is a chocolate smoothie bowl full of goodness and beautifying avocado and acai powder.
Great as a filling breakfast or healthy pudding.
It’s also perfect for hiding avocado from picky eaters!
Hope you like it!
