the easiest coffee ice-cream

I love ice-cream but I don’t have a fancy ice-cream maker, nor do I want to faff about churning it all the time! This is perfect and amended slightly from good ole Nigella.

Ingredients:
300ml double cream
150g condensed milk
2tbsp espresso powder (not liquid!)
2tbsp of coffee or chocolate liqueur
Optional : nuts, chocolate chips

Method:
Put all ingredients together and whip (electric or by hand) until the cream has created peaks.

THAT. IS. IT.

Pop it in a container and into the freezer for 6 hours, or even better, overnight.

The alcohol will ensure the ice-cream never freezes solid and retains a gelato consistency.

Enjoy :) !

warby parker ~ nailing it

Some companies are nailing it at the minute. Warby Parker is one of them.

If you’ve not seen their annual reports, you should take a look, such a breath of fresh air from the pages of text you normally see. Here’s their 2014 report and 2013 was also ace.

…and here’s a note from their CEO Dave to me…you can now refer to me as loofah :). More companies should do this! Brands, take note.

HidrateMe ~ smart water bottle

HidrateMe, a smart water bottle that syncs to your phone to track your water intake and glows to remind you to stay hydrated

hidrateme

I actually need this bottle…and it looks like others do too because it is already funded! Hooray!

I would love to be one of those people guzzling water all day, sadly I am just not. I have a coffee in the morning and I can genuinely go for hoursssss without drinking anything else, because I don’t get very thirsty unless I have done a workout.

If I am at my desk I *might* remember to fill up a glass, if not, gawwwd knows when, most probably when I am lethargic and grouchy with the beginnings of a headache which is a taaaad too late to keep the ole noggin and body healthy. I know I know. Must. Do. Better.

Check it out below.

frozen banana ice-cream

A super quick ice-cream made from frozen bananas! Who knew?

Especially good for the dairy free or vegetarian bods amongst you.

Ingredients:
(serves 1)
1 frozen banana
1 heaped tsp raw cacao powder
honey to taste
teeny bit of good quality vanilla paste
teeny bit of cinnamon – don’t overdo it!
teeny pinch of sea salt
optional ~ nuts, dried fruit, peanut butter

Method:
1. Freeze the banana, best done with the skin off (they only take a few hours)
2. Chop the banana up and whizz it in a blender for a few minutes until smooth
3. Add all the other ingredients and you’re done! ~ Just amend the quantities and flavours as you wish :)
4. If you fancy a topping, coconut, cacao nibs and berries work well!
