Dairy free and with a base ingredient of veges but the smooth taste of chocolate – bring it to me now!

White Choc Yum!

coconut, macadamia, coconut oil, cacao butterSteering a little away from peanut butter and chocolate this week, I thought I would revisit some of my white treats and create something new.

This is a step up from the White Chocolate Fudge recipe and is even more creamy and tastes even more like those chewy Milk Shake lollies of my youth. (I was sure my teeth were going to come out chewing those lollies.)

Lemon Noodle Salad

healthy, lemon, salad, kelp noodles, weight lossI just wanted to share with you my current favourite salad. I could eat this at least four days in the week, as it’s just so light and tasty and really hits the spot.

Boo! Devastated.

Little story before I launch into the recipe for this one – this week I saw a picture/recipe for cauliflower cheesecake. Yep vegetable as a cheesecake and given that I am always on the lookout for ways to eat more veges, this was a little exciting.

Cherry Choc Geli Slice

I have a confession to make. This recipe was supposed to be something entirely different. It was supposed to be ice-cream!

With cherry season here I had visions in my head of this deliciously creamy ice-cream with chunks of cherry and chocolate through it and a bit of a crunch of macadamia nuts – heavenly, dreamy and yum.
