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...

Fact: chocolate is one of the most popular food products in the world. Newsflash: now you can make it quickly and easily at home! This is because cacao products such as cacao butter and cacao paste are now available to the general public - yay! Making your own chocolate means you can customise the sweetness and flavour to your liking.  The quantity of sugar in this recipe can be increased or decreased, or try using creamed honey instead. Play around with adding some orange zest, nuts, coffee, dried berries or cookie chunks. This dark chocolate is completely vegan and dairy-free. If you...

Sweet, juicy pears are in season and are so versatile to bake with. I especially love the combination of pears with vanilla. This week I felt like trying my hand at a bit of confectionery. The French term for these deliciously soft sweets is "pâté de fruit", which means "fruit paste".  Unlike jelly sweets set with gelatine, these are softer in texture and not quite as chewy or jelly-like. The secret to achieving this texture is using pectin. Pectin is a soluble fibre naturally found in the cell walls of plants. Citrus fruits and apples contain high amounts and are used to produce...

Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 04.07.2017

Raw Vegan Brownies. Not what you were expecting from me, was it?  It's true, I usually aim for decadence at all costs without much consideration for health or dietary requirements. But isn't it time our vegan friends got to enjoy some decadent treats too? These "brownies" have a dense and fudgy texture, with a lovely bit of crunch from the nuts. Fresh Medjool dates (currently in season) provide just enough sticky sweetness, and the cacao nibs impart the rich chocolate flavour. Cacao nibs are a very pure, unsweetened form of chocolate made by crushing cacao beans. If you are sceptical about trying these, rest assured that I would not put my...

I'd love to tell you that my favourite thing about these ice lollies is that they are made with only fruit and are therefore super-healthy. But I'd be lying. What I love most about them is that are just so pretty! I mean look at those colours! Isn't it pleasing to know that all those lovely, bright colours come from fruit alone? These lollies are a great way to get your kids to eat something healthy on a hot summer's day. In fact once they see these beautiful treats, you may have to fight them for one! All you need to make these is fruit, water, a blender, and ice lolly...
