Raw Coconut Macaroon Balls

Ava is still not eating sugar but she’s becoming more aware of what Joe and I are eating so I’m experimenting with more recipes that taste sweet but that are healthier alternatives to shop bought treats. Here is the recipe for some very yummy macaroon balls. They take minutes to make and only have 5 ingredients. No cooking is required and you can whip a batch of these up in minutes so they’re a great option for a quick and healthy snack. I’m a huge fan…

Chewy almond and goji berry breakfast bars

Golden Milk aka Turmeric Tea is something that I’ve been wanting to make for ages now. So I’ve been playing around with this recipe  because I wanted to get a great, creamy taste whilst keeping the perfect levels of turmeric. And I think I’ve done it. Hurray!

Coconut and Chia Balls

I’m passionate about getting healthy, nutritious but also tasty food down my family – Ava included. And just because she’s a toddler (and they’re normally pretty fussy and don’t like trying new things) doesn’t mean I’ll let her eat just anything. She (like both her mummy and daddy!) love to snack and this means that I experiment a lot with snack foods for us all and this one has become a firm favourite. Coconutty, a bit gooey and pretty irresistible – my version of the chia…
