Vegan Avocado Pesto Pasta

Personally I am not a fan of processed white flour in general but since I do not have any gluten or wheat issues, my favourite pasta is actually wholemeal pasta. I also enjoy spelt. Durum wheat semolina flour used in pasta is actually quite different to flour used in bread, it has a much lower gluten concentration so it is less likely to create a digestive upset,

No-Bake Vegan Plum Vanilla Jelly Tart

When I first made this cake a while ago I never intended to blog it because it is the exact same recipe as my vegan baked vanilla cheesecake but with the addition of blueberries and a little lemon zest. I was so thrilled my first attempt at a baked vegan cheesecake had worked so well that I wanted to try different flavour combinations.

Tea Infused Vegan Spelt Muffins with Blackberry Coconut Frosting

Its a very plain recipe so I wanted to attempt to give it more flavour by using herbal tea instead of plant milk and add some frosting. The herbal tea I used was a sleep time blend from Asha Twinnings, which was mostly chamomile, but you can use any tea you like.

Silken Tofu Chocolate Mousse

In terms of hormone health, this is the perfect dessert! It has some of my most favourite hormone friendly ingredients and is loaded with essential nutrients for hormone health.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse and Chia Pudding Parfait – Vegan

I have experimented with chia pudding a fair bit over the years and was never quite happy with all the different ways to make chia pudding. Chia pudding is usually eaten for breakfast but most recipes I have seen called for a plant milk base and quite frankly it is just not filling enough or flavourful enough.

The Best Plant Based Foods for Low Estrogen

but when it comes to raising low estrogen for women in reproductive years (not postmenopausal women) they can only help once the root cause of low estrogen is addressed. In most cases the root cause involves; not eating enough, exercising too much and excessive stress. Addressing these issues is what brings about real change, and only after these problems are rectified is it ok to lean on these foods for extra support.

Vegan Blueberry Lemon Custard Tart

I'm not really sure what to say about this tart other than my husband ate 3/4 of the whole thing in one sitting! There was something about this flavour combination that really really worked. I have made a few vegan custard type tarts before but this time I wanted to create a custard recipe that was a little firmer than usual.
