Smoothie Bowl Feathering Tutorial

I kept this smoothie bowl really simplistic (in terms of ingredients used) but guys, feel free to make any smoothie you like to turn it into a fun smoothie bowl. But you’ll want to use chilled (not frozen) fruit/veg, and some liquid, because you need…

Wild Herb & Quinoa Sushi

Wild Herb & Quinoa Sushi

Quinoa sushi with herbs, radish and avocado. Quinoa sushi I usually just add avocado to my sushi but when I make sushi for myself, I love to add radishes. They add a peppery flavour, a bit of heat – plus it’s a great way to…

Lemon Poppyseed Vegan Donuts

Lemon Poppyseed Vegan Donuts

I’m currently hooked on anything lemon-poppyseed flavoured. You may have noticed, I’m not always very creative when it comes to flavourings…usually I just stick with chocolate. So I guess that’s why I’m so excited to branch out and make other flavoured sweets (dare I say…
