Average per serving: Cal = 370 Total time:20 minutes prep + chilling or freezing time

I was drawn to this recipe because quite frankly I thought “that… sounds gross” I was intrigued therefore decided why not! Safe to say… I was pleasantly surprised. I always say this but i think this has to be one of my favorite desserts yet.

Sweet Potato, Spinach and Lentil Soup with Cashew nuts

My Home-made soup to help heal and soothe a poorly tummy and gut

Last week was show week at Laine Theatre Arts, which also meant numerous trips to Costa Coffee and the sweet shop for an afternoon energy boost, then whether spoons later that evening for a post bowl of chips and a glass of wine. Safe to say, since then I have been feeling the side effects. My energy levels, digestive system, skin.. you name it, it’s caught up with me! (7 days worth of stage makeup didn’t help either) hello spots! *cries*

This being the case, I have devised a recipe full of all the necessary ingredients to give my body the chance to detox and heal. As a sufferer of IBS, my poor tummy has been in knots, so implementing root vegetables alongside taking an effective probiotic should soon soothe the pain in no time!

I have been persuaded. ANYONE who tells me that gluten free food isn’t as good as regular food Is either 1. a liar or 2. hasn’t eaten this cake. Honestly, I have NEVER in my life made something and been so happy with the outcome.

We’ve all been there. We have had such high expectations for a cake. We’ve slaved away in the kitchen all day, followed the recipe religiously, and spent a fortune on ingredients, all in the hope that we can rely on Mary Berry or Betty Crocker to assist us in creating something delicious… only for it to come out of the oven with burnt edges and a soggy bottom.

But not this time. Served slightly warm, this moist and satisfying tea time treat is one I shall be making again and again from now on!
