Homemade Hemp Milk Hot Chocolate

There are times in life when you just want hot chocolate. It's usually an upset, either a so called friend stabs you in the back (metaphorically speaking), your favourite umbrella broke in the rain, or whatever. It doesnt' really have to be a major life catastrophe, now does it? Us women have an inherent instinct to "justify" the necessity.

We rush to the kitchen at full speed and whip up hot chocolate or grab our favourite chocolate bar. Our cure-all for life's minor setbacks, or so we convince ourselves.

Whether it does or not I convinced myself that it warms me up. mugful but it is certainly not like the sweeter versions that are my norm. Hope you like it.

Dairy-free Choc & Vanilla Ice Cream Torte

Now here's one you'll thank me for when you get that call from one of your guests to say they are intolerant to dairy, gluten or is a vegan. This dairy-free chocolate and vanilla ice cream torte looks like you went to an awful lot of effort. Who's to know, unless you tell them, that it's from shop bought ingredients.

Blueberry, Redcurrant & Avocado Smoothie

When I saw the blueberries and redcurrants on special offer yesterday in my local shop I grabbed a few packs. Happy thoughts of smoothies and possibly a berry crumble to be made were making me hungry on the drive back home .
