Bubblegum Cheesecake

A little something we call “bubblegum” cheesecake. This dessert is naturally coloured with beetroot powder, blue spirulina and matcha powder. Not only does this create the beautiful colours but it also enhances the nutritional value as these ingredients are packed with antioxidants. We have used macadamias and coconut yoghurt for the base of this cake, however cashews can be used …

Tropical Berry Nice Cream

Nice cream is a summer essential. It is the perfect alternative to ice cream with that creamy texture we all love, just without any of the added sugars, flavours and preservatives.

Caramel Slice Nice Cream

This creamy, decadent nice cream recipe was inspired by the ‘caramel slice’ smoothie on Health Synergy app. To create the thick ‘ice cream’ texture it is important that you freeze the bananas in advance.

Hazelnut Chocolate Ganache ‘Cheesecake’

Rich, decadent, delicious and healthy. This one I made whilst I have been away on exchange, which really goes to show that it is still possible to make healthy desserts with limited space and resources. I won’t lie, it does make it more difficult – my blender decided to stop working on me so I revert to the old-fashioned way and had …

Choc-Hazelnut Bliss Balls

These Choc-Hazelnut Bliss Balls are a great afternoon pick me up to satisfy those 4pm sweet cravings, without any of the added nasties.

Orange and Sesame Donut Cakes

This recipe has been adapted from our ‘cinnamon spiced orange cake’ and like the cake, has a delicious ‘sponge’ like consistency. We have used sesame flour which is a great alternative to almond meal if you are intolerant and/or sensitive to nuts. That means our orange donut cakes are not only gluten, dairy and refined sugar free but they are …

Double Decker Chocolate Cheesecake

This recipe was adapted from our earlier recipe ‘Black and White Chocolate Cheesecake’ but we decided it deserved its own post! We made the cakes as normal, using two small circular spring form tins and allowed them to set individually. We then removed the cakes from the tin and stacked them on top of one another… Too easy! Another difference …
