Lolly Cake in your MOD Blend Pro

Lolly Cake in your MOD Blend Pro

Anyone who around in the 90s will recall that if you walked into a bakery anywhere in the country, you could guarantee that a lolly cake would be among the offerings of sweet goods. It was my favourite treat growing up but I haven't made it in years! Lolly cake is very quick and easy to make (especially in your MOD Blend Pro) and requires no baking. It just needs an hour or two to set in the fridge.  Here is our recipe for making the kiwi classic.

Healthy 1908 Biscuit Recipe

Healthy 1908 Biscuit Recipe

An absolute kiwi classic.  Growing up in New Zealand, these biscuits remind me going away to school camp when my grandmother would load me up with dozens of these biscuits to share amongst friends.  The smell of toasted cornflakes and chocolate is a well known smell to a lot of kiwis so I thought I would try and recreate these with a bit of MOD twist.  Unlike the originals, these biscuits are completely refined sugar free, gluten free and dairy free and they can be whipped up in a few minutes using our MOD Blend Pro. They are not as...

Carissa Mason's One Plate Pancakes (GF | DF)

Carissa Mason's One Plate Pancakes (GF | DF)

Growing up my favourite breakfast in the world was pancakes. The batter was a simple white flour, white sugar, milk and egg mixture, and then smothered in pancake syrup, berries, icing sugar and on occasion, whipped cream. As I got older and became more aware of healthy living, the idea of loading up on that amount of sugar in the morning became extremely unappealing.  Thankfully, now there are so many pancake recipes out there that still taste just as delicious but will not provide you with that 10am sugar crash.  Nutritionist Carissa Mason kindly shared her go-to pancake recipe that is so...

Mango & Greens Smoothie

Mango & Greens Smoothie

This bright green tropical smoothie is filled with all the good stuff.  Hemp seeds are now available in most supermarkets and are a great source of both protein and essential fatty acids. The body is unable to produce essential fatty acids yet they are crucial for ensuring long term health. Adding something like hemp seeds regularly into your diet ensures that your body is getting a sufficient dose.  Another slightly unusual ingredient in this smoothie is psyllium husk. It's a great addition to smoothies if you prefer your smoothie on the thicker side. They absorb more water than chia seeds and have...

The lovely Kira has created the ultimate vegan nacho cheese sauce.  This is a great recipe to have up your sleeve when you are wanting to indulge in cheesy goodness but for whatever reason, do not want to consume the real stuff.  It can be lathered over nachos, pasta, enchiladas or just as a fondu style dish.    I was introduced to this recipe when my friend, Kira, made it a few weeks back. After having a taste, I knew instantly that this was a recipe that I needed to share with the MOD community.  A vegan cheese sauce that will change...
