Salted Caramel Milkshake

A little bit sweet, a little bit salty. Anything caramel flavoured I am drawn to. In my early 20's I would go through the McDonald's drive thru and ask for a cup of caramel sauce and devour the whole thing in a sitting. Long gone are those days, it's not worth the sugar hangover! If you are a caramel lover, try this homemade milkshake. The combination of dates and cashews make it ultra creamy! Enjoy! Jx

Nut Free Bliss Balls

Bliss Balls are one of the easiest and nutritious snacks to make. These bliss balls are nut-free, making them perfect for people with nut allergies. Most schools are a no no for nuts which means you can send these snacks along to school as a healthy lunch box treat. As well as being nut free, these bliss balls are also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. I have used dates, cacao, orange rind and vanilla to sweeten them.

Every baby deserves an equal start in life, regardless of their home situation and times are tough for many families.

Crispy Smashed Potatoes

For many families, potatoes are a staple vegetable and are enjoyed in so many different ways - mashed, steamed, baked, roasted, boiled, made into soup, fried or cooked on the BBQ.  I am always looking for new ways to cook potatoes and recently, I have been enjoying them baked and topped with garlic, olive oil, pesto, chives and parsley.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

You are tasked with making dinner for the flat, it has to be budget friendly (you don't want to spend your weekend Rosé fund on your flatties, do you?), it has to be simple, ingredients that you possibly have a home, someone is coeliac so dinner can't contain gluten and another flat mate just got back from a stint in Sydney's eastern beaches and has embraced the Paleo-dairy-free lifestyle like all good Bondi hipsters do, so hold the cheese! If that sounds like your household, this is the recipe for you.

Peanut Butter Fudge Slice

This is the result of some serious procrastinating... I have been doing anything but study lately. Cleaning the toilet has been more appealing.  Today I had a huge craving for peanut butter and wanted to make something with ingredients I already had in the cupboard.  In Julia and Libby's Wholefood Kitchen we have an incredible Peanut Butter Cheesecake and I took inspo from that recipe, but simplified it.

The strawberries give it a burst of sweetness, the cheese adds creaminess and the walnuts and pumpkin seeds add some crunch. Feta cheese can be used instead of goats cheese and almonds, avocado and blueberries can also be added for some more variety.
