Coconut Water Cold Brew Coffee

I have recently been getting into the cold drip ice coffee – you know the ones made in the giant glass contraptions seen in trendy cafe’s -those ones. Besides costing a small fortune and there being a shortage of trendy cafes in my area, I couldn’t really keep up this caffeine habit and decided to make my own. After some research I found it was actually quite simple to make at home, all you need is some ground coffee, water, a glass container and something to strain out the grinds. …

No Bake Raspberry Ripe Slice

You know those times when you want to make that amazing looking raw cake recipe but can’t really convince yourself that you should spend a small fortune buying the ridiculous amount of raw nuts called for? Been there.  So instead I have created a slightly budget friendlier raw slice recipe made without nuts.  It’s ridiculously easy to make and eat and did I mention that it’s delicious?

Vanilla Buckwheat Breakfast Pudding

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Lately life has been so busy, I have been doing an intensive course at uni, trying to prepare to move out to go on uni placement, keeping up at the gym and then working on the weekends as well! Sometimes life just gets so busy you run out of time to prepare food and find yourself having to eat on the run. This is definitely true for me at breakfast at the moment. Rather than buying something on the way to uni to eat I have been soaking a big batch of this buckwheat pudding on Sunday night so that its ready to eat in the morning.

The beauty of this recipe is that it takes no time to prepare, just stir up all the ingredients plus it will last in the fridge all week. Once the mix is all soaked in you can divide it between jars or containers and top with fruit and yoghurt all ready for the next morning.

Banana fudge overnight oats

I hate ever having to skip breakfast, but sometimes its just too hard to get a bowl of cooked oats together in the morning when time isn’t on your side (especially if you’re cooking rolled oats from scratch!). ‘ why I love overnight oats so much. All you have to do is soak your oats the night before in your favourite milk and whatever flavourings and then in the morning you can either heat them up as an instant porridge or eat it cold like a bircher muesli. They can even be made in a jar so they are all ready to grab and go in the morning. No excuses not to eat breakfast here.
