Magic Matcha Latte

We all know of my affinity for making potions and tonics and all the goodness that comes with them. So, here’s another drink recipe for you (I could write a whole blog on magical drinks alone I think…), my mid-morning magic matcha pick-me-up.

This is a recipe I get asked for quite a lot so it makes sense that it would have its own place here on Living Alchemy. You can make it as basic or as fancy as you like, its an easy recipe to tailor to suit your needs day-to-day I find. Some read more

Simple Coconut Breakfast Loaf with Almond Butter & Nectarine

I like the simple things in life; moving my body, meditation, a good book, spending time with my loved ones, a warm mug of herbal tea, the sound of the heavy rain against windows, being in nature.

Roasted Carrot & Garlic Dip with Turmeric

I’ve been wanting to make this specific dip for a while now and I am so glad I finally got around to making it. So creamy, full of flavour and versatile. I’m thinking served with crunchy vegetables and oatcakes, smothered on toast (as pictured here), topping a veggie burger or just in place of wherever you would usually have some humous for a welcome change and a burst of colour.

I woke with a very shaky start this morning. A combination of not sleeping through the night and an read more

Raw Strawberry & Coconut Cheesecake

There aren’t many better ways to experience the taste of summer than eating fresh, sweet, juicy strawberries straight from the punnet. This will always be my first choice when it comes to the question of how to eat this beautiful fruit. This cake might very well be a close second. Raw, naturally sweetened, filled with fruit and goodness… it’s pretty damn magical.

The sweetness you get from fresh Scottish strawberries in the summer is almost like they have been dipped in sugar. read more
