Basil Pesto

When hosting a dinner party I can take some time to cook so always make sure there are snacks for guests.  One thing I love to make is home made basil pesto - it goes well with crackers, cut up raw vegetables and corn chips.  This basil pesto is gluten free, dairy free and vegan so suits most people (sorry, it does contain nuts).

Fruit Whip featuring Yonanas machine

After hearing lots of talk about a Yonana machine I decided to purchase one and have to say I'm pretty happy I did. For anyone who is unsure of what a Yonana is, it is a machine that makes it possible for vegans, any one who is dairy free or lactose intolerant and those of us who are more health conscious to enjoy frozen desserts similar to ice cream/sorbet/frozen yoghurt.  All you need is frozen fruit as a base, along with your favourite topping, mine is dark chocolate and pistachios.  Other fruits that process well through this machine are frozen berries, peaches, apricots, mangoes apples and cranberries.

Peanut Butter Protein Slice

On my way home from Uni yesterday I had a peanut butter craving, so got home, looked at what food was in the cupboard that I could possibly use to make some sort of peanut butter creation.  Keep it simple is one of my motto's - Make something substantial and somehow combine protein powder without making the whole thing taste like cardboard. The recipe can easily tweaked here and there to suit your own taste.  For example rice milk if you don't drink almond, honey if you don't like maple syrup and adding in stevia if you have a big sweet tooth.  Make it for yourself and let me know your thoughts.
