Hope you all had a super fun Christmas! We've had such a wonderful Christmas and Boxing day this year, surrounded by good food and family, it's been heaven.
I know I've been a little quiet here lately, I've been so busy at work promoting my new book 'How to Eat a Rainbow' which has been an amazing journey, but totally time consuming- so sorry for the lack of posting- but rest assured I'll be back into the swing of things soon, along with a revamped site; please stay tuned!
In the meantime, I have a wonderful recipe to share with you, my 'Red Velvet Chocolate Elixir' which is featured in the recipes section on Indigo Herbs website, please visit their website to check it out.
This drink is everything you'd love in a chocolate drink and more! Sweet, comforting and warming and packed with superfoods, it's the perfect drink right now for these cold Winter's days,and really gives you a boost first thing in the morning too.

This recipe I created exclusively using products from Indigo Herbs of Glastonbury. For you guys that haven't heard of them, they are an amazing company based here in the UK, delivering what I believe to be the most top quality herbs, superfoods, chocolate, teas and all sorts of goodies possible! For those of you who've seen me talk, you may have noticed that I nearly always use these products as I really can taste the difference in them. I am not paid to promote these products at all, I just really believe in them- they have never let me down.
So imagine how excited I was when they offered to provide me with some of their delicious ingredients to create an elixir recipe for their website! I adore elixirs, and make several variations of them at my talks and demos. Packing herbs, superfoods and spices into chocolate is a win win combination that I learnt from the wonderful David Wolfe in my raw foods certification from The Bodymind Institute. Since learning of this powerful combination I have never looked back, and I love to include as many local superfoods and ingredients as possible to make these even more special.
So please do check out this tasty recipe, and this lovely blog post they did about me and my new book!
I'd like to finish by wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to all the fun changes the new year brings, I'm sure it will be a blast!
