Ladies and gentlemen when you’re in need of something sweet…
These 2 minute brownie bites are just what you need to eat!
- 1 banana
- 1 cup of flaxseed
- 4-6 tablespoons of carob
- Handful of Almonds
- 1 tablespoon of dried grapefruit zest
- Dates/raisins/currants (optional)
Measure out your flaxseed into 1 cup…
Then add with the almonds and shake it all up!
Give them both a good fine blend…
Your consistency should look like this in the end:
Add the rest of the ingredients carob, banana and zest…
Blend well until the dough is mixed right through and is smelling the best!
Then roll into balls or why not fill a shaped ice cube tray…

Sometimes you need something refreshing and nice, There’s nothing like a cool bowl of watermelon ice!

- Chop melon into bite size chunks (We used 3-4 mini watermelons, though 1 large melon would work also.)
- Freeze over night
- Blend in high speed blender or ice crusher.
- Add a small amount of water if you are finding your blades are struggling.
- Do not feel you need to completely blend the ice crush mixture, it can be rather appetising to leave a few frozen watermelon chunks in your sorbet!

Ladies and Gentlemen here’s a delicious idea to give your meal a nutritious start…It’s so wonderfully vibrant it is edible art!
- Lettuce head with large leaves. We used Batavia, though Cos could work well too.
- Julienned or thinly sliced salad vegetables.
- Salt/pepper to taste
- Cocktail sticks
- Favourite dip/sauce (optional)
First wash out your leaves and lay them out flat..
Then lay salad items in strips…just like that!
We used julienned, cucumber, carrot, red onion and pepper too. Though you could add any fillings that you wish to.
Sprinkle a little salt and pepper for extra spice and roll the green leaf up like a wrap, oh it looks so nice!
We always find piercing a cocktail stick through the middle helps it to stay, so your delicious crunchy centres don’t unfold away.
Voila! There we go our wraps are ready and complete, ready for a delicious healthy bite to eat 👌
Here’s another tasty tip…Why not serve our lettuce wraps alongside your favourite sauce or dip?
