Brownies

Brownies that are healthy AND have minimal ingredients? We’re on board for that! In a bowl, mix 1 cup dark chocolate (melted and slightly cooled) with 1/3 cup honey. Mix in 2 eggs (whisked until foamy), and whisk until combined. Add 1/3 cup whole wheat flour and a pinch of salt. Mix until just combined (don’t overmix). Pour into an 8” x 8” greased baking tin and bake for 15 min at 350°F (180°). Cool and enjoy!

Popsicles

Popsicles are great for a quick snack that cools you off at the same time. While we are on the topic of healthy and easy desserts, we have to tell you about this recipe. In a food processor, blitz 1 large can coconut milk, 2 cups strawberries, 1 banana, and honey (to your taste). Pour into molds, and freeze.

Banana Nice Cream

As the weather is warming up, it’s time to get out all your ice cream recipes. This is an easy (and healthy!) recipe you can add to your collection. You don’t even need an ice cream churner. In a food processor, add 3 bananas (chopped and frozen), ¼ cup of milk, and vanilla extract. Blitz until smooth, and freeze in a loaf pan for about an hour. Scoop out and enjoy!

Chocolate Mousse

Chef Annabel Langbein has a deliciously easy chocolate mousse recipe. All you need is 200g dark chocolate, 2 cups of cream, and 1 cup chopped marshmallows. Heat the chocolate with 1 cup cream, and marshmallows, and stir until completely melted and smooth. To avoid the chocolate from getting too hot, you can use a double boiler. Remove the mixture from the heat, and cool to room temperature. Beat the rest of the cream until you get soft peaks and fold this into the chocolate mixture. Spoon into serving glasses, and cool overnight.
