Good morning from Amsterdam! I’m currently sitting down with a cup of tea looking at the first blue skies I’ve seen all week, hurrah! I’m here for a really exciting project but will be sharing more on that in April so stay tuned. For now, let’s eat!

4 ingredients. Creamy, nutty and rich in raw chocolate flavours from the naturally-sweet carob powder. Perfect to spread on toast but equally as good to smear over fruit slices and just about anything that needs a yummy hit!

This is a mismatch of the two; the perfect savoury and sweet combo. Toasted wholegrain bread smeared with the cashew nut butter and topped with all things fruity. Another one of my recipes using the delicious Alpro nut drinks (this time the unsweetened Almond drink) which adds a world of creaminess to the nut butter. You can also use blanched almonds instead of cashews as the nut base if you prefer.
