This recipe is quite a unique one as it uses the UK’s first ever pistachio milk along with juicy berries and antioxidant packed matcha to provide a tonne of goodness!
Borna’s pistachio products are quite unique as they’re the first brand in the UK to produce non dairy milks from pistachios, it’s also rare to find pistachio butter or snacks like the rest of their range.
Pistachios have a huge number of benefits (see more below) but this range is especially suitable for those on a diet free from animal products as their milks are fortified with vitamin B12 and calcium which are often hard to get from plant based products.
No joke, these things taste and smell a little bit like a pizza, the herbs+cheese+tomatoes are a great combo and one you need to try at least once!
They’re great for lunchboxes but also for anyone who wants more fibre in their diet but doesn’t like or want oats for breakfast then this recipe is a great one.
The courgette in this may seem a little strange but trust me it works, it gives moisture to the recipe plus the other ingredients cover any bland flavour it has. It’s also another veg that’s squeezed in there which can be a secret from anyone you want to feed more veg to without really knowing!
With everyone being in lock down atm, most of us are missing our meet ups with friends or family and having a catch-up over a cup of tea and sweet treat. As some people are making their own baked goods and then having a virtual tea party over Zoom and are also looking for healthier snacks while they work from home I decided to put together this mix of healthier tea party & snack options
Why not up your snack game to make it a bit healthier using nourishing ingredients and expand your recipe repertoire.
- Healthier, wholemeal scones, these are two of my own recipes which have gone down a storm with my family
Orange, dark choc & strawberry
- Peanut butter hummus (for people with more of a savoury palate) from @eatnourishlove
This would also be a great dip for apple slices
- Spiced fruit & nut biscotti-normally i make these around Christmas time but they’re great all year round and you can adapt the fruit and flavour to suit your tastes
- Sneaky veg blog has some great veg/fruit based bakes, these fruit based, refined sugar free flapjacks are an easy afternoon treat to whip up
- Another great option which is also vegan from sneaky veg blog are these blueberry banana muffins
I’d recommend using half wholemeal flour as suggested in the recipe in order to get more fibre in there!
- Power hungry Camilla’s almond sponge cake which uses ground almonds and starch to make it means it’s flourless but also gluten free and would go so well with some fresh Summer strawberries and a dusting of baobab powder if you have it
- I love these easy wholefoods oat based cookies from Amy’s healthy baking, you could also sub half the raisins for dark choc chips and I would recommend if you have it that you could sub some flour for flavoured pea protein to balance out the macros a little more and then reduce the maple slightly.

"Taco" a look at this indulgent, healthier Saturday night fakeaway! (sorry, couldn't resist). For those of you not from Northern Ireland you may have a different idea of what a taco chip is but over here it's a typical takeaway dish that uses fried white chips that...read more
Didn't think there could be a healthy, tasty, low sugar AND low carb donut? Well think again because I created one! I was so careful with this recipe to strike the right balance between using low carb coconut flour (which I've found in Tesco before) but also making...read more
