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...

I had some pomegranates leftover from a shoot recently and instead of a dessert, I decided to make something a little different - a cocktail!

Even better if you can convince someone to serve you brekkie in bed! Dutch baby pancakes are similar to Yorkshire puddings in that they contain no raising agent, yet puff up beautifully in the oven. Steam is what causes them to rise, so it's important to...

The first time I used cacao nibs was when I made Raw Vegan Brownies. I loved the intense, dark chocolate flavour they added.  Cacao nibs are considered a superfood and often used to make healthy smoothies and snacks. Me being me, I came up with a far less virtuous use for them. By simpling roasting the nibs to intensify the flavour, and steeping them in white rum for 2 weeks, you have a delicious chocolate flavoured rum. I added a little sugar to balance out the slight bitterness, but this is of course optional. A bottle of Chocolate Rum makes for a...
