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.

Green Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to pack lots fruit and vegetables into your diet with very little fuss. They are quick to make, delicious and so easy to take with you when you're out and about, as well as being unbelievably versatile so they can suit everybody's tastes. I've been trying out a few different recipes recently and the 3 below have come out as my favourites. Like with all smoothies, they are very adaptable and can easily be changed depending on what you like and what is available to you.

Chocolate and Stout Mini Bundt Cakes with Salty Caramel Sauce

Last year around St. Patrick's day I made the most delicious Guinness brownies with cream cheese frosting - the recipe for which you can find here - and ever since then I've been wanting to make another cake that includes Guinness or stout beer. It's still always a shock to some that I'm a pretty big fan of the stuff.
