HORACHATA

HORACHATA

Horachata is a rice milk drink popular in South America and Mexico. Each country has their own version but the base is always rice milk. This recipe is quick and easy and closer to the Mexican version. You can even spike it with Rumchata or […]

RASPBERRY COCONUT ICE CREAM

RASPBERRY COCONUT ICE CREAM

I love ice cream. I would eat it everyday if I could. This is a nice alternative to the traditional ice cream with it being mostly fruit and mixed together with sweet creamy condensed milk. The coconut cream gives it richness with the hint of […]

CHIA PUDDING

CHIA PUDDING

I went to the store the other day and they were selling chia pudding cups for $3.99. It was a 1 cup serving with a few ingredients in it. I thought to myself, why would someone buy this when chia pudding is so easy to […]

BANANA NUTELLA WONTONS WITH ICE CREAM & RASPBERRIES

BANANA NUTELLA WONTONS WITH ICE CREAM & RASPBERRIES

This dessert is everything you want in a dessert – sweet, tart, cold, hot, creamy, crunchy… absolutely perfect. I made it for my friend for her birthday instead of a birthday cake. She couldn’t get enough.

BANANA COCONUT MUFFINS

BANANA COCONUT MUFFINS

As with most banana muffin or bread recipes, it starts with you having a bunch of bananas sitting on your counter that you were going to eat or make a smoothie with. But the days went on and now they’re black so your only option […]

GREEN SMOOTHIE

GREEN SMOOTHIE

Smoothies are my favourite everyday dessert. I use kefir for its probiotic properties. It’s a fermented milk drink that has lots of good bacteria. Coconut oil has so many health benefits and when I first heard of adding it to a smoothie, I was skeptical, […]

FROZEN BERRIES WITH ICE WINE CHOCOLATE

FROZEN BERRIES WITH ICE WINE CHOCOLATE

The first time I had frozen berries with white hot chocolate was in NYC with my Swedish friends. It was New Years Eve and we were at this Swedish restaurant. When they told me it’s berries and white chocolate I wasn’t overly impressed. But then […]

GREEN TEA ICE CREAM

GREEN TEA ICE CREAM

I love ice cream, good ice cream that is. In the grocery store I find that Häagan daz is my favourite but we don’t get that many flavours or the new flavours. One of my favourites from them was the green tea vanilla honey. They […]

RASPBERRY ROSE ICE CREAM

RASPBERRY ROSE ICE CREAM

I went to a gala and they were serving raspberry rose gelato. It was amazing and of course the first thing that came to my mind was that I have to make this at home. I used my quick no-churn ice cream base and added […]

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

I love jams with berries. Whenever I’m in the grocery store I see all these wonderful jams made with fresh berries. Then I turn the jar over and see how much sugar is in it and put it back. One of my favourite snacks is […]
