Cocoa, banana, avocado and almond butter smoothie with pumpkin seeds.

The thickest, creamiest and most delicious smoothie I’ve ever made. You could so easily fool someone in to thinking this was an unhealthy milkshake. I’m bad at photographing smoothies but I had to document this one!!

Recipe: 1 small avocado, 1 verrrry ripe banana, 1 tbsp cocoa, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 cup ~ish almond milk and a few ice cubes.

Dinner - spicy grilled tofu and mushrooms with cherry tomatoes, edamame, spinach, a side serving of broccoli and a peanut/orange sauce.
For the tofu I pressed a third of a block, chopped it in to 5 slices the put some cornstarch, cumin, ground coriander, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper on a plate, mixed it up and rolled each piece of tofu in the mix. Then I just sprayed the griddle pan a few times with a lil’ bit of oil and grilled away!
The dressing is simply a tsp of peanut butter, pinch of salt and some orange juice (which I microwaved for 20 seconds - they heat helps everything emulsify) and bam! Awesome dressing. :D

Low-fat intensely chocolatey bundt cake with a dusting of icing sugar. ^_^ (vegan!)

This recipe comes from Veganomicon, potentially my favourite vegan book of all time after Ms. Cupcake’s book. I’ve never made a bundt cake or tried using coffee in a chocolate cake before but it turned out pretty great! You can’t taste the coffee which is great, it just makes it darker in colour and richer without the need for soya butter etc.

I think next time I might drizzle this with a little glacé icing and top with toasted crushed hazelnuts and fresh raspberries, yum!
