Tropical Acai Smoothie Pineapple Bowl

Tropical Acai Pineapple Bowl

Now that Spring is officially here, I’ll be returning to my regular smoothie programming. Although this is not your average smoothie.   Obviously Acai has enjoyed its fair share of smoothie spotlight. But having been in Malta the past few years, the Brazilian fruit puree hadn’t arrived onto the island until very recently, thanks to Purple…


Rosé Mulled Wine

When the temperatures drop in preparation for the holidays, I love a steaming cup of anything from apple cider to hot chocolate. But it wasn’t until I started visiting European Christmas Markets that I fell in love with mulled wine (or glühwein as they say in Germany!). It’s basically Christmas in a glass, with spiced red wine…


Bloody Acai Halloween Cocktail

Whether you’re throwing a party this year, or just need something to sip on while dishing candy out to the trick & treaters, then this ‘Bloody Acai’ cocktail is for you. The acai berry puree gives it a deep rich purple colour (not to mention a serious antioxidant boost!), as well as a cloudy look…


Birthday Banoffee Pavlova Pie

It was recently my good friend’s birthday. When we first met a few years ago, and we talked about our favourite desserts (naturally), I remember she mentioned her absolute favourite was pavlova. Definitely not one to top my dessert list, I thought pavlova an odd pick – as it’s basically only egg whites – so…


S’mores Brownie Pie

For the quintessential Canadian, nothing is more synonymous with summer than s’mores. This isn’t your typical dessert across the pond though. Case in point, Malta doesn’t do s’mores. For those that haven’t tried ’em, this delicious dessert combines melted chocolate with roasted marshmallows sandwiched between two graham crackers. They’re usually assembled alongside the glow of a campfire,…


Pina Colada Chia Seed Pudding

Building on the post, Chia Seed Protein Pudding: Three Ways, here is the first recipe instalment. For me, there is nothing quite like a proper pina colada in a tropical destination. However, I find myself craving the flavours of one even in the dead of winter with no palm trees in sight. Pina Colada smoothies…


Chia Seed Protein Pudding: 3 Ways

Chia seed pudding is culinary genius. If you’re not familiar with this superfood, remember back to those popular plants that would sprout in the shape of an animal known as chia pets? Yeah, those chia seeds. The once common kitschy house plant has been reborn into one of the coolest health foods of the moment. Luckily for…


Blended Berry + Beet Chia Seed Pudding

For those of you lucky enough to have a blender as part of your kitchen tools arsenal, then you have to try out this blended chia seed pudding recipe. Or if you’ve been…


Mocha Macadamia Chia Seed Pudding

Building on the post, Chia Seed Protein Pudding: Three Ways, here is the second recipe instalment (see the first recipe for Tropical Pina Colada Pudding). If you find yourself craving an indulgent snack, look no further than this ah-mazing Mocha Macadamia Pudding. I’ve upped the ante by adding in dried mulberries, as inspired by my favourite…


Gingerbread with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

I first tried the flavour combination of gingerbread and lemon in the form of an ice cream sandwich, with lemon gelato between two chewy gingerbread molasses cookies. I was pretty hesitant to try it at first, thinking the mix sounded less than appetizing. However, one bite and I was a total convert. In fact, the combination of…
