Ice Cream & Frozen Delights, Recipes / 04.03.2021

We've had the most beautiful hot summer in Cape Town. Sadly its coming to an end and autumn is on its way! Luckily with our amazing climate here in South Africa, it's still warm enough to enjoy these super-easy and totally refreshing Pina Colada popsicles. With just 4 ingredients and a blender, you can whizz these up in no time. They're dairy-free, gluten-free AND vegan so they make a fab treat to have on hand in the freezer for any unexpected guests. For alcohol-free, kid-friendly lollies, simply omit the rum. You can also add ½ tsp of finely grated lime...

27 February is National Milk Tart Day in South Africa. I love the fact that there is an entire day dedicated to this delicious dessert - not that I ever need an excuse to eat milk tart but it does always get me thinking of other ways to enjoy this lekker, local delight.

The gorgeously luscious texture is thanks to a special ingredient - golden syrup! It also gives a hint of caramel flavour which balances the dark chocolate perfectly.

Ingredients: (enough to fill and ice 1 x 20cm double layer cake) 200g dark chocolate, finely chopped 230g unsalted butter,...

Christmas has come and gone but I'm still in in the mood for making holiday treats like this gingerbread fudge! It's deliciously creamy and packed with all the warm and festive flavours of a gingerbread cookie - what's not to love? A while ago I found an adorable mini gingerbread man cookie stamp. It works beautifully to cut out cookie dough so I tried using it for cutting out fudge and it was a win! The resulting gingerbread men are not only super-cute but also the perfect size to gobble up in one bite! If you cant find a similar...
