Another Cheesecake finally. I haven’t made a lime cheesecake before and paired with fresh blackberries and blueberry powder by Arctic Powders and a base made with tahini and Chocolate Lovers powder by Yoursuperfoods it is absolutely fabulous.
Ill make it short this time I just know if you love the tanginess of limes and the fresh taste of blackberries you will love this cake!
As always please tag me on Instagram if you do try it. Id be honoured.
Who doesnt like pancakes right? I certainly do. And I was on the search for a delicious vegan pancake forever until I came across the fluffy recipe by thevegan8.com.
I did try it out and thought it was a bit too starchy for me. So i adapted it a small bit and used Oatmilk instead of coconutmilk (just because I am not a big fan of coconut flavour in anything except on its own)
Anyway these turned out so so fluffy and delicious.
Please have a go and try them you will not regret it.
Want a cheesecake with a superfood in it? well youre in luck as I have created two very yummy cheesecakes and both feature a superfood. Whats not to like right.
So are you an orange or a lemon fan? Or do you like both. Me for one I think I prefer lemon, although the orange one is pretty good too. So you can try both like I did and please let me know if you do. Id love to hear your opinion.

WARNING! This is not a healthy cake! Its full of sugar and white flour.
But on the other hand its my little James’ favourite cake and I had to perfect the vegan version of it. So here it is your treat that is to be enjoyed sparingly but nevertheless enjoyed.
Aquafaba is very temperamental so let me know how it works for you. Every tin of chickpeas could be different in aquafaba quality so maybe try different brands if it doesn’t work well at first. I had a few terrible outcomes but this one turned out perfect.
This, my friends, could possible be one of the best desserts I ever made!
I am not joking the feedback I got was amazing. And guess what Its NOT my recipe.
The blueberry bit is, but the rest belongs to Amrita www.crazyvegankitchen.com or @crazyvegankitchen on Instagram.
Ever since I saw her original Vegan Riramisu recipe I really wanted to make it but was too lazy to make a sponge for it. Well then I saw her Match Tiramisu and I was totally in love with it. I had to make it.
Unfortunately not everyone loves matcha I had to come up with something else, heres where the blueberries come in. My freezer was full of blueberries (Im the kind of person who buys them every time I do the shopping, which is quiet often) so I thought lets try blueberries.
Guess what it turned out beautiful. I made it for a birthday party and I came home with one (they are big portions those glasses I had).
I was very tempted to devour it myself (remember I am still on my sugardetox) but had a tiny teeny bit of the cream and gave the rest to my cake loving colleague.
So here we are thats the story of the Blueberry Tiramisu and below all this talk is the recipe.
Although I am on my sugardetox I couldnt help but make cakes. I just love making cakes and I much too rarely make chocolate cakes.
So here is one that ive been thinking of making for a long time but never got to it.
The Rocher Cake (or tiny cakes in this case).
This will make about 5 small cakes depending on the size of your tins. I have made several different sizes so I wont give you guidance on the measurements.
As always if you recreate anything you see on my blog please tag me on Instagram. Id love to see your creations.
There is yet a person I have to meet (except my youngest monkey) who doesnt like the combination of chocolate and mint. Thats why I guess mint chocolate bars are such sellers, right?
Think after eight (I wish they were vegan) and me not liking chocolate by itself, minty chocolate is one chocolate Id always eat. Thats why I thought a minty chocolate cheesecake bar would be such a lovely idea.
Although I am not the biggest fan of shop bought treats oreos have always been my favourite biscuit since I went vegan. When I then discovered that the new minty oreo is also vegan I had to try it and what is a better way to try something than out it into a cheesecake?!!??.
So here it is all you chocolate mint cheesecake lovers! The Oreo Mint Cheesecake Slice. As always when you make it please tag me on Instagram, id love to see your creations.
I LOVE blueberries! Absolutely love them. It is my favourite fruit and berry and no other fruit comes even close. Isnt it also the most beautiful fruit to photograph?
Just as well it is so so good for you, full of antioxidants and vitamins it should be classified as a superfood! maybe it is HAHA.
Do you actually know how to find out if a fruit has loads of antioxidants? I’m sure you do but here’s what I learned.
Cut it open and leave for a few minutes, maybe half hour or so. If it turns brown like an apple pear or banana, well tough luck hardly any antioxidants, because its oxidation that makes our fruit brown. So what antioxidants do is fight that oxidation. In fact when we get old we get age spots. Guess what that is? Yupp oxidation. So all those yummy berries that don’t change colour are full of those oxidation fighting antioxidants.
Learned something new? I did.
Anyway back to blueberries. As I said I love them and there was a time when I used to eat at least two punnets a day, which was very expensive. My kiddos have blueberries every day with their breakfast. And now I grow my own, but here in Ireland they take forever to ripen. Ours are still green.
So why did it take me so long then to make a blueberry cheesecake? I don’t know maybe because I do enjoy them so much that I thought it might be a waste. But fear not, it wasn’t. I actually think this is my best cheesecake yet. (Sorry not that many recipes here but you’ll see on my Instagram account that I tried out a few.
The review I got today when I brought this cake into work were great, everyone loved it.
But a little warning the biscuit base is made of bought vegan choc chip cookies so is not sugar free. Of course you can replace those biccies with a healthier alternative.
For now enjoy and as always let me know what you think.
I’m still fighting this nasty cold that I got about 4 days ago and I am really not happy. I haven’t been sick for over a year and I have way too much to do to be sick.
My two monkey are getting bolder by the minute and wont listen to anyone especially the small guy. Well actually both of them are just as bad as each other.
Work is busy and I have so many ideas fro recipe that I just don’t want to be sick.
Anyway to boost my immune system and hopefully get back on track very soon, tomorrow would be good 🙂 or Id prefer later today actually, I made this really old favourite of mine. The Pink Plum and Berry smoothie.
I don’t know about you but I try to buy seasonal fruit and veg but sometimes I’m in the mood for some berries and guess what when I buy them out of season they’re just so disappointingly sour. But frozen berries are always in season right? So This smoothie is nearly seasonal except for the plums and strawberries, I guess which were quite sour though.
So if you need a boost of vitamins here comes my recipe for the Deep Pink Plum and Berry Smoothie.
- 3 very ripe fresh bananas
- 1 ½ plums de-stoned
- 2-3 strawberries
- 75g frozen mixed berries and some for decoration
- Granulated pumpkin seeds for decoration
- Sweetener of choice, I used agave syrup
- Blend all ingredients except the decorations in a blender until smooth.
- Pour into a bowl and decorate as you wish
