Mango Coconut and Carrot Bliss Balls

Blissful in that they taste divinely creamy, sweet and deliciously treatlike. Also in that any child (or fussy grown up) will be blissfully ignorant that they are inadvertently consuming hidden carrots and antioxidant rich turmeric!

Paleo Beetroot and Artichoke Hummus

Never was there quite such a quandary on the spelling of a word than with 'hummus' - or is it 'houmous' or 'houmus', which I used in my previous two 'hummus/houmous/houmus' recipes and can be found here Lemon and Rosemary Artichoke Houmus and here Smoked Paprika and Porcini Artichoke Houmus.

Pumpkin Pie Hidden Vegetable Smoothie Bowl

Why I bothered to state the obvious about 'hidden vegetables' in the title is a mystery to me given I hide vegetables in every meal!

Sweet Potato Turkey Indian Spiced Patties

Over the busy summer holidays I have been trying to make meals that:
a) cater to the tastes of all members of the family (quite a tall order given the diversity of strong likes and dislikes;
b) require minimal fussing over a hob in the summer heat;
c) can be served cold straight from the fridge for efficient leftover lunches.

These little patties do just the job. despite the fragrant Indian spices they are not too spicy for the children (or husband) but flavourful enough to elicit a general consesus of approval. A winner in our household!

No-Bake Mini Matcha Sesame Doughnuts aka Donuts

Let me be very clear at the outset: aside from their shape these bear absolutely zero resemblance to the average doughnut! That's not to say they don't taste good but there is truly nothing worse than unmet expectations - spiralling into disappointment, frustration and potential anger... After all, this is the highly sensitive subject of doughnuts, people!
