Cherry and Almond Tray Bake





Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in current crazes and recently there has been no bigger craze, in certain circles, than that of health food.
When it comes to health food I'm always in two minds - on the one hand I am unashamedly greedy and wholeheartedly believe that life is too short to consistently say no to dessert; though I am also in the mindset that it is definitely possible to create delicious foods that are good for you. Now this is where the problem has arisen recently - as so many have jumped onto the health food bandwagon, so much of what is being created does not actually taste any good.

Raw, Vegan Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Sammie's





Ice cream (along with pizza, obv.) is pretty much my biggest vice. It can be the coldest day of the year and I can still single handedly finish off an entire tub...although I wouldn't be left feeling too great afterwards. So last summer I tried my hand at making some vegan/dairy free ice cream for the first time and came up with my delicious Bounty Ice Cream Recipe which is still one of my favourites. Ever since then I have wanted to try out some more healthier ice cream recipes; striving for something that was delicious and tasted indulgent, whilst still packing a serious nutritional punch and stayed away from any additional sugars.

Mini Raw Lime Pies




These Raw Lime Pies are the perfect light summers dessert. The filling is creamy, zesty and not too sweet; coupled with the flavoursome crispy base and just a hint of fresh ginger, these couldn't be better. Obviously they are also ridiculously easy to make, only needing a handful of everyday ingredients.

Banana, Cacao and Maca Bread




My recipe for vegan banana and date loaf is one of my all time favourite (and most popular!) recipes on here. I often re make the old classic, but for a while I've been wanting to make a new version, adding in some cacao powder to make it different, but keeping the same core ingredients that I always have at hand.

Raw Chocolate and Hazelnut Tarts





I actually made these wayyy back when at the end of March before I went away but only just rediscovered the photos! 
After having a quick flick through, it all came flooding back and I remembered just how good these were. I worked on this recipe just after making my raw chocolate pudding so the filling for these tarts is a very similar. They are just as quick, simple and delicious; with the same very green core ingredient.

Now I know I've been quiet for a little while, but I have big news. 
I have finally perfected my recipe for a vegan vanilla cake! 
This cake also happens to be free from both gluten and wheat, as well not containing any refined sugars. 
Alright, Ok I lied - this not big news - this HUGE news...for me anyhow.

Raw Chocolate Pudding




When you're busy it's great to have a few fall back recipes that are simple, speedy and only call for a handful of everyday ingredients. With my love of avocados we pretty much always have a few sitting in the kitchen so this recipe for me is the absolute perfect thing to use up all that green goodness. Throw in a few dates and some raw cacao powder and you have possibly the most delicious, simple and healthy pudding known to man.
