These dairy free coconut & chocolate popsicles , inspired by the world famous Bounty bars (one of my all time favourite snacks btw), are SO easy to make and SO tasty, you will want to freeze and eat dozens of them!
After making my lemon waffles with Spring fruit compote the other day, I had some cherries left and I also happened to have some yogurt to use up, so I decided that since I wanted something yummy for Sunday breakfast, baking a cherry yogurt loaf cake was just what had to be done!
Spring and Summer give us the best, sweetest, juiciest fruits of the whole year *double sigh* and since I didn’t want to miss on the fun, I came up with this quick compote of peaches, apricots and cherries and paired it with gluten free lemon waffles.
The season for enjoying lunches in the open air has FINALLY arrived and this black rice shrimp salad with a simple vinaigraitte dressing is going to be the perfect, quick-to-make, tasty dish to bring to picnics and BBQs!
I used the rainy days to do some baking and make once again these delicious cocoa cupcakes topped with my dairy free coffee cream!
So, without further ado, let me tell you how the recipe goes
I wanted to make something scrumptious but easy, that could be offered after a lunch or dinner with family and friends, a dessert that wouldn’t absorb much time while you are already pretty busy preparing the main courses.
Today’s post rather than a recipe is an idea for a last minute meal, using what you have in the fridge and pantry.
In fact this is a dinner I put together the other night after getting home from work.
I opened the fridge, contemplating for a moment its content, you know, when you’re so tired you find yourself staring at things forgetting what you are even doing there.
A while ago I discovered the magic that cashews can work whenever you need to cook something creamy, but dairy-free.
So far I had only used them in savory recipes with my easy cashew cheese sauce, but the other other day I decided to experiment with a sweet recipe.
One day my boyfriend and I were talking about sweets he used to eat before being diagnosed with his many food intolerances, years ago. And he told me: “Oh I miss the good old classic tart, you know the one with LOTS of jam in it? Apricot jam! Lots of it. That’s my kind of tart”.
Some mornings, especially when it’s cold and rainy outside, you wake up and you know you are going to need a comforting breakfast to start the day on the right foot and face all the work and errands and chores ahead.
