Victoria Sponge with Berries

Posted on

I had guests for dinner but no dessert so we quickly made a Victoria sponge. I reduced jam with brandy to make a topping, and added fresh berries.

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

Posted on

I make this smoothie as a full-meal dessert, when I’m craving something sweet but don’t want to eat a full meal and also a sweet. Usually I make it from one banana, one tablespoon of Dutch-process cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon tahini, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 4 juicy dates, and stevia to taste. I add just enough hazelnut milk to blend.

This smoothie is decorated with matcha powder, coconut flakes, raspberries, strawberry and pistachios.
