Low-Carb Vegan Vanilla Milkshake

Vegan “milk” shakes and smoothies (which don’t contain dairy obviously) are all the rage these days. They usually rely heavily on frozen bananas and/or other fruit as well as dried fruit such as dates to achieve a sweet, creamy and thick consistency. While arguably delicious, this makes them heavy on the carbs and sugars, andRead more

Vegan Clafoutis {lc, lf, gf}

Note: This is an updated – veganised – version of a vegan clafoutis to my previous recipe for paleo clafoutis! I hope you enjoy it! It seems I have a thing for French desserts at the moment – or rather, my take on them. While I love the timeless finesse that French desserts exude, aRead more

And for him, those bombs served as a perfect substitute forRead more

This coconut frosting is relatively easy and quick and tastes great! It also has a better texture than my previous frostingRead more

Who of you vegans, low-carbers and dairy intolerant folks has not pondered old favourite recipes calling for condensed milk – only to resign yourself to the fact that no dairyRead more
