Homemade Almond Milk

Juice 2-19

Hi lovelies!

I’ve been meaning to try out homemade almond milk ever since my bf’s lovely Mum bought me a nut milk bag (thanks Toni!).

I finally made the time to test it out and was pretty happy with the results.

Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes with a Berry Compote

IMG_0649.JPG

Lazy Sunday mornings are perfect for pancake making. It’s become a little ritual between my boyfriend and me to have pancakes almost every Sunday. In fairness, we’d both happily eat them every morning if we had the time.

Although weekends are perfect for letting go a little and eating something less healthy, treating the entire weekend like that will have a negative impact on your health and (if you have them), weight loss goals.

So, I have pinched this recipe from My Fitness Pal and created my own healthy topping.

These pancakes are pretty good- they aren’t like standard pancakes, slightly heavier but still good and a lot more filling in my opinion.

They are almost sugar free; I managed to make 9 pancakes altogether-with 1tbsp of sugar in total, per pancake thats pretty much only a tiny smidge of sugar. You could also replace the butter with vegan butter and make it dairy free.

Ingredients:

  • 1.1 ounces all-purpose flour (1/4 cup)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup non dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
  • 1 large egg (use Orgran egg replacer
  • Oil/butter for pan

For the Compote

  • 1/2 cup natural yoghurt almond/coconut/soy
  • 1/2 frozen berries
  • 1/2 small banana

Method:

Preheat oven to 150 degrees c

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Combine milk, butter, and egg in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
Heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat (can use frying pan). Coat pan with oil/butter. Spoon about
2 1/2 tablespoons batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles; cook until bottoms are lightly browned.

Vegan Chickpea Tacos with Crunch Mango Slaw & Spicy Red Pepper Sauce

Juice 2-4

This recipe has become my ‘go-to’ recipe for impressing friends (vegan and non-vegan) and a firm Friday night favourite when you’ve got a bit more time to prep. I never used to like chickpeas but I now realise that stems from memories of eating them undercooked which mean hard and crumbly. I have developed a great love for the humble chickpea and it is an excellent healthy option and meat replacement.

Juice 2-5

So lets get down to the nitty gritty.

Vegan Chocolate and Raspberry Chia Pudding

IMG_8264This little guy is such a healthy sweet treat to have when you’re craving sugar. But, it does take a couple of hours to set so plan ahead chocolate lovers! The dark chocolate hardens when mixing with the other ingredients and creates a nice crunchy-ish textures and the raspberry and a slight tartness which really compliments the chocolate (check me out sounding like a food critic…)

Lemon and Poppyseed Pancakes with Strawberry Puree

Poppyseed Pancakes

So this is one of my new favourite pancake recipes. I LOVE pancakes- it’s become a Sunday/Weekend tradition for my boyfriend and me to treat ourselves and have pancakes. This recipe isn’t one of my most healthy, but it also isn’t that unhealthy, especially if you make it with my strawberry puree instead of adding sugar or maple syrup.

I pinched this recipe from a lovely website lecremedelacrumb

So these are her wonderful words of wisdom (a little edited by me to add in my puree) 🙂
