I didn’t set out to make ice cream. Not yet anyway. This recipe was a happy accident. Now I know what you’re thinking, how can you accidentally make ice cream, right? Let me explain.

It all started when I made my Maple Walnut Cake. It’s a completely oil-free cake and the oil is replaced by sweet potato. The sweet potato is blended up with non-dairy milk and vanilla before being added to the other ingredients. When I was blending it, I realized that it was kind of custardy and might be good for other things, so a few weeks later I tweaked it a little and tried to make popsicles with it. They weren’t the greatest but to save wasting them, I let them thaw a bit then blended them up to make a quick ice cream. The result was delicious. A few more tweaks later and we have ended up with this No Churn Rhubarb and Custard Ice Cream. Continue reading →

Peanut Butter Banana Cups

These 4 ingredients Peanut Butter Banana Cups are a lighter alternative to more traditional versions and are literally melt in your mouth delicious. Eat from the freezer for an ice-creamy, fudgy type filling, or leave to defrost for a few minutes and they will become super creamy, smooth and oozy! 

These 4 ingredients Peanut Butter Banana Cups are a lighter alternative to more traditional versions and are literally melt in your mouth delicious. Eat straight from the freezer for an ice-creamy, fudgy type filling, or leave to defrost for 5 - 10 minutes and have a super creamy, smooth and oozy melt in your mouth delicious.

Peanut butter cups have got to be one of the most delicious foods out there. The peanut butter chocolate combo is just incredible and when a craving for them hit a few weekends ago I knew I had to make some. I melted some chocolate then went to the fridge to retrieve the peanut butter. When I opened the jar it was nearly empty. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?

With the chocolate already melted I had to improvise. I hadn’t been grocery shopping for a while and had one overripe banana left that I was saving to make Chester’s Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Cookies.

Poor Chester. I had to steal his banana.

Don’t feel too bad for him though as he’s got to be the most spoilt dog ever. He ended up having Sweet Potato Cookies baked for him instead.

So I ended up adding the stolen banana to the peanut butter to make it go further and when I tasted the mixture straight from the food processor bowl I couldn’t believe how delicious it was. I used it to fill my cups and then put them in the freezer to set.

Then came the fun part. Taste testing!

I was surprised to find that they were edible straight from the freezer. They were hard but not too hard to bite and the filling was almost like a cross between ice-cream and fudge. So good!

I left a couple to defrost for a while and after about three minutes they started to become beautifully soft, creamy and oozy. Continue reading →

I am so late writing this post. I honestly don’t know where my time has gone over the past few days. I usually have my posts all ready and scheduled out at least the night before but not this time. I’m now sat in my pyjamas at stupid o’clock typing this, with a bowl of Almond Hemp Granola on the side to see me through. If you are on my mailing list you will be getting this sent to you a little later in the day than usual and that is why. And I do apologize for giving you visions of me in pyjamas first thing in the morning. It’s not a pretty site…..

It couldn’t be more appropriate that I am eating this Almond Hemp Granola as I write. It makes such a wonderful breakfast. I love it served with yogurt and fresh berries, or with a splash of very cold homemade cashew milk. It’s also wonderful with stewed apple, on smoothie bowls or scattered liberally over banana nice-cream. It makes an awesome snack by the handful too.

I published my Double Chocolate Coconut Granola recipe a few months ago and it has been really popular so I thought I would follow it up with another flavour profile that doesn’t involve chocolate. I love to eat chocolate no matter what time of day it is but I realize that some people don’t. For those of you who fall into that category, and for those of you that just love granola regardless of what flavour it is, I created my Almond Hemp Granola.

This granola is crunchy, slightly chewy and has such a lovely toasty flavour. The main ingredients are the obligatory oats, almonds, hemp seeds and puffed rice which I love to add to my granola for the added texture and crunch. What makes this granola really special though is the cinnamon and cardamon. There might not be much, but it totally lifts the flavour and makes the granola super delicious. Continue reading →
