THE BEST VEGAN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE BY IQS, SPOOKIFIED (Happy Halloween… BOO!)

I made this yummy IQS chocolate mousse (purportedly the best vegan chocolate mousse around) after seeing it suggested as a healthy Halloween treat on iquitsugar.com the other day. I loved their suggestion of turning the chocolate mousse cups into spooky little diorama treats!   These were super-easy to assemble; approximately 100 x less labour intensive than baking and decorating Halloween cupcakes. […]

IQS-STYLE CARAMEL SLICE (an egg/nut/gluten/sugar-free treat, just in time for Halloween!)

This delectable Caramel Slice is an IQS-inspired treat, closely based on the fabulous recipe by Steph from I Quit Sugar, posted a while back on iquitsugar.com (click here to view the original recipe). It is not one of the recipes featured in the I Quit Sugar 8 Week-Program, however I admit I did have a piece (or two)… […]

SPICED ALMOND MILK HOT CHOCOLATE

I have decided that tonight I will attempt to catch up on news in the blogosphere. But before I see what my friends have been up to, I want to quickly share a recipe that I’ve had a few requests for via Instagram. The other day, lovely Lillian, the brains and beauty behind Sugar and Cinnamon, […]

MISS MARZIPAN’S JAVA CHIP FRAPPU-CHIA-NO (a healthy, sugar-free, protein-packed, vegan, paleo-inspired, frosty mocha smoothie you can make at home!)

It took a long time for a certain coffee chain from Seattle to reach Sweden’s shores and, for many years, the highlight of my time spent sitting in airport transit areas was the rare opportunity to sip on a coveted Frappuccino. When I started becoming Pinterest-obsessed a few years ago, I noticed many a DIY take on […]

ROASTED SWEET POTATO & QUINOA SALAD WITH CHILI & GARLIC-INFUSED DRESSING

Probably my favourite salad ever. Won’t beat around the bush, but I ate this every evening last week whilst at night school (that’s pastry night school, folks… will explain all in another post soon!)  if that’s any indication how much I love this recipe! ROASTED SWEET POTATO & QUINOA SALAD WITH CHILI & GARLIC-INFUSED DRESSING INGREDIENTS 4-6 […]

QUICK PAN TOASTED SPICED TAMARI SEEDS

I love inventing simple additions to meals on the fly, and these super-easy toasted tamari seeds were the perfect accompaniment to my Roasted Aubergine and Tahini Bowl the other night (based on the recipe by Deliciously Ella, which you can find here).   Impatience led me to using a frying pan (I didn’t want to fuss with an […]

I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PROGRAM (weeks 7 to 8 in review)

And so, the IQS 8-week program has officially come to an end. :’( *blub blub* It hasn’t stopped me from whipping up Easy Gado Gado for dinner tonight, nor treating myself to a Zucchini Brownie for afternoon tea. Yes, it seems that 48 hours post-program, I have stuck with sugar-free, despite being technically “off the hook” now. And […]

STRAWBERRIES & CREAM SUGAR-FREE TARTLETS (IQS-style, gluten-free, egg-free, summery scrumptiousness)

Midsummer in Sweden is a big deal. When you spend half the year (or more) coping with trying to survive decidedly wintry conditions, you know why. This year, in the midst of the IQS 8-Week Program, I questioned whether I should bother baking or not. The rationalisation that I needed to create something celebratory for Midsummer- if only “for […]

I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PROGRAM (weeks 1 & 2 in review)

Hi all! Firstly, I apologise for neglecting to respond in good time to the lovely comments on my previous IQS post. Traveling, working and general “mama life” have prevented me from being here as much as I’d like at all. As those of you who have read my previous IQS-related posts will know, I own a […]

FESTIVE BANANA BREAD WITH CRANBERRIES, ORANGE & PECANS (gluten/dairy/refined sugar/guilt-free!)

Craving a guilt-free, festive sweet treat? Overripe bananas begging to be used? This could be just the ticket! Still a tad nervy about gluten-free baking, but having a packet of Doves Farm white self-raising flour blend that I needed to get through and an event coming up with a gluten intolerant guest to cater for, I came up […]
