Mandarin banana bread, gluten-free & vegan

It is the high season of mandarins. Yippee! I love them when they are ripe, juicy and sweet. However, I have the following problem with them: they are often sold in 2 kg packs or more, so I stuff myself with mandarins for a few days before I get bored. I usually end up having to choose…

Vegan chocolate

Christmas special: Gluten-free & Vegan Gingerbread Cookies

I do not have a sweet tooth: if you ask me to choose between a piece of cake and a portion of fries, the portion of fries will always win. Except during Christmas holiday season: you’ll see me stuffing myself with chocolates and biscuits, something I usually never do. Is it the cold that drives…

Homemade sugar-free Bounty bars

I love Bounty chocolate bars. Their coconut flavor reminds me of a vacation in the tropics. The subtle bitterness of dark chocolate contrasts beautifully with the sweetness of coconut. Well, to be honest, there was a time when I used to love Bounty bars… Indeed, the candida diet I followed last year (see bio) made…

Those of you who know me well know I love Japan and Japanese cuisine. During my trip to the Land of the Rising Sun a few years ago, I have had the pleasure of rediscovering some European classic desserts with a Japanese twist. Thses original blends of textures and flavors were surprising sometimes but always beautiful, light…

Smooth and sweet: mango cream

I love the sweet flavour and soft texture of mango. After blending, it becomes a thick puree, to which I simply added soaked buckwheat and some liquid to get a smooth cream. The origin of thisrecipe is an unfinished smoothie: I originally wanted to make a mango, papaya & orange smoothie. When I tasted it whil I was preparing…

Pistachio chia pudding, raw raspberry jam

I always found that pistachio and raspberry form an irresistible duo, both visually – I love the soft green and deep pink blend – and from a culinary perspective. In this recipe, the sweetness of the pistachio is enhanced by the tangy flavor of raspberry. This chia pudding is perfect for an energizing breakfast, a pretty dessert…

Frozen treat: exotic popsicles

Sunny days give me summer cravings: refreshing drinks, fresh fruit and ice-cream! Last year, when I was on the candida diet, I was very frustrated not being able to have ice-creams, until I stumbled on an ice-cream maker who had on offer daily two gluten free, lactose free and sugar free flavours. This encouraged me to sudt my…
