The Macaccino

a delicious plant-based smoothie for people on the go

This is by far my most requested and popular smoothie. Delicious and substantial, it is a smoothie for breakfast or could be a meal replacement. Any left-over smoothie can be frozen into ice lolly (popsicle) moulds – or add less almond milk and you have a delicious ice cream. I’ve used almond milk but it would work equally well with coconut milk or oat milk.

Rice Milk

a dairy-free, nut-free, soya-free vegan milk

Rice milk is a refreshing plant-based alternative to nut, seed and soya based dairy free milks. It is a useful addition to your culinary armory if you are seeking to avoid dairy, nuts and soya. I’ve sweetened this version, but you could omit the yakon syrup and vanilla for a more neutral flavoured milk for use in savoury dishes.

Hot Schokolade

(Dairy free, gluten free, vegan)

When there’s a chill in the air, I find myself propelled towards a smooth hot chocolate drink for comfort. Imagine being about to make one that is so rich, thick and creamy that you thought you could be in one of those little cafes in Switzerland. Free from cream, dairy and sugar so it’s a perfect healthy treat.

NOTES: I always feel more comforted if I warm the mug first. It gives the feeling of a hot drink and makes it feel even more indulgent.
