Eternal watermelons for an eternal summer: Watermelon Popsicles with Mango and Kiwi (Vegan)
Whenever watermelon is brought into the house, my mind begins buzzing with things to do with it because it is just such a versatile fruit. Watermelon is the perfect fruit for making popsicles, because it’s so watery but naturally sweet and just tastes amazing frozen. The best part is that with watermelon, you don’t need yogurt, or honey or even ice to make the perfect popsicles.
De-seed the Watermelon and puree it in a blender until it forms a liquidy red mixture
Layer the bottom (or what will be the top) of your popsicle containers with diced Mango
Place a coin of cut Kiwi on top of this diced Mango in each popsicle container, and then pour the watermelon puree in
Freeze overnight and you should be good to go with these popsicles for breakfast, afternoon snacks or after-dinner fruit!
(Nearly) monochromatic beauty: Warm, Nutty Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa with Cherries and Mango
A vegan breakfast recipe worth dying for. Or at least, throwing lots of positive adjectives at. A wonderful amalgamation of all my favourites, including the nutty delicious quinoa, the fragrant cinnamon, crunchy toasted walnuts, creamy almond milk paired with juicy fruit, this is a breakfast. The best part is, it takes so little time/effort for such a delicious outcome.
Using a 1:1:1 ratio of quinoa:almond milk:water (I use 1/4 cup of quinoa for breakfast), firstly rinse the quinoa in cold water and bring the almond milk and water to a boil. Then reduce the heat to medium, add the quinoa, cover and let it cook for 15 minutes until it fluffs up.
Whilst the quinoa is cooking, put one walnut half per quarter cup of quinoa in the toaster to toast the walnuts to crunchy, delicious perfection.
Once the quinoa is done, sprinkle with a generous helping of cinnamon and stir through the nuts. If there isn’t enough milk left then feel free to add some more to cool down the quinoa as well, and enjoy with fruit!
I love breakfast parfaits: Chia seed pudding parfait with Blueberry Strawberry Banana Smoothie, Kiwi, Blueberries, Mango and Watermelon
It began with one of my most beautiful breakfasts to date, the oatmeal parfait, and the obsession intensified with my perfect smoothie parfait. But this is a parfait of all the nutrients, flavours and colors I could ever need in my life, and is definitely going to be a recurring thing - Chia seed pudding and “boring” won’t be put in the same sentance again!
