Dairy-Free, Protein-Rich “Magical” Matcha Tea Latte (+ the secret ingredient to making any drink creamy & frothy without milk)

Dairy-Free Matcha Latte 3

I’m an unabashed one-a-day coffee drinker and have been, off and on, for over 15 years. I’ve always taken it with a little sweetener and most importantly, a liberal pour of cream. (These days it’s dairy-free cream but still…) In addition to the aroma, warmth and pick-me-up, my morning coffee ritual is all about comfort and […]

Tomato, Strawberry and Basil Sorbet (from The Best Homemade Vegan Cheese & Ice Cream Recipes)

Tomato Strawberry Basil Sorbet from Vegan Ice Cream

In my garden, the tomatoes are still producing strong! I planted heritage varieties of Chadwick Cherry tomatoes, a sweet, plump, slightly larger cherry tomato size than the norm, as well as Black Seaman tomatoes, a large, bigger-than-your-hand, dark red-purple tomato. I found these tomatoes had trouble ripening evenly, with lots of cracking with our summer […]

Party Time Dessert Pizza (dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan friendly)

Dairy-free, gluten-free Party Time Dessert Pizza 1

It’s Friday! And you know what that means, don’t you? That’s right, it’s p-a-r-t-y time! To be a bit more specific, it’s Party Time Dessert Pizza time! (In hindsight, that’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it?) Admittedly, I feel like no party is ever complete without pizza so it’s pretty easy for me to think of […]

Late Summer Peach & Almond Porridge (gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, vegan)

Hey guys, it’s been 37 days since I last posted a breakfast recipe and since you know how much I adore breakfast, I figured it was high time for another! This is a sweet easy late summer breakfast porridge, it’s mostly raw (if you use raw almonds), and there’s no cooking involved. It also consists […]

Basil Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (dairy-free)

Basil Chocolate Chip ice cream (dairy-free)

I’m sharing this recipe because there’s a chance that one day someone who’s adventurous (crazy?) like me, who loves to throw ingredients normally expected in savoury dishes into sweet desserts, just might love this little ice cream recipe as much as I do. Chocolate + fresh basil + coconut milk + sweetener = the best […]

Iced Turmeric & Honey Chai Lattes (gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, vegan friendly)

Turmeric and Honey Chai Latte featured

Throughout the summer, I love nothing more than sipping on a cold drink, served over ice, with lots of spicy notes, a hint of honey and a splash of creamy, milky comfort. I also love it when those drinks are easy and relatively cheap to make at home, supremely healthy and packed with antioxidants and […]

Coconut-Vanilla Chia Pudding with Cherry-Rhubarb Compote (dairy-, gluten- and grain-free)

If you’ve ever tried chia pudding, you’re probably in one of two camps: you love it, or you hate it. Chia pudding usually consists of small black or white chia seeds, soaked in a liquid, with or without additional flavourings, spices and/or sweetener, until the seeds plump up, absorbing up to 10+ times their weight […]
