Whipped Nutella

Today I have something quite special for you to make: Indulge in homemade, decadent whipped Nutella! You can thank me later ;)

Once you have tried homemade Nutella you won’t go back to the store-bought kind. And it is so easy to make! Once you have your hazelnuts sorted out (=skinned), the food processor or blender will basically do the job for you. My whipped Nutella is also healthier. You won’t need any additional oil and there are no artificial flavors or other nasties added. You can alter the chocolate to your preference and could even try to make a dairy-free version, using dark chocolate.

Homemade Almond Granola

Sorry for the lack of posts lately I don’t really know what my excuse is, I guess I have just been catching up with life in general… Nevertheless my to-do list does not seem to be getting shorter. Anyways.

The bikini season is almost upon us, even though the recent drop in temperatures (again!) might not seem like it. I’m still trying to motivate myself to get into shape and with all the rain it has been very hard these past weeks.

Got Almond Milk?

For my first post of 2014, I wanted to write about a healthy DIY to help all of us staying on track with our new year’s resolutions because haven’t we all made some health and fitness-related resolutions back in good old 2013?! ;)

I like researching how to make my own ‘food’. First of all it gives me a great deal of satisfaction knowing that I am not dependent on a supermarket, a brand or a company (yes I’m talking about you Nutella!). Most of the time it is healthier and does not contain any nasties. And in 99.9% of the cases it tastes much better than store bought!

Homemade Almond Butter

I’m obsessed with my food processor. I missed it so much while I was in London and I only had it for about two years.

I remember when I saw it standing all dusty in my boyfriend’s parents kitchen, on top of the cupboard. I was immediately intrigued about all the new cooking opportunities that this handy device has to offer. Needless to say, I saved it from an unfilled life and took it home with me :)
