Alpro Calls Time on Dessert Envy!

At last, here is a suite of desserts worth shouting about!

If you’ve longed for something rich and creamy, these will hit the spot. Gone are the years of dessert envy. Now you too can luxuriate at dessert time by devouring these divine pots of glorious creaminess, tempered with tangy fruit compote. Allow me to introduce […]

Gluten Free Damson and Almond Traybake

Our favourite traybake recipe has taken a very successful leap into the gluten free realm. The texture remains good, the flavour is excellent and the recipe remains as easy as ever!

You will need a standard roasting tray (mine is about 13″/34cm x 11½”/29cm), a measuring jug, a large mixing bowl and an electric hand whisk.

The […]

New Additions to the Alpro Family

It’s been a while since a new “yoghurt” appeared on the scene…and just like buses, now there are four. Alpro have brought us the new flavours and they’re all good!

Alpro Lemon and Lime

This one was the first new kid on the block…and for me it’s an absolute star. The zingy lemon and lime come through […]

Chocolate Cherry Delight

This is my favourite variation yet on the traybake recipe!

It started as just another experiment. It has become a new favourite and was devoured at the latest Parents’ Association cake sale. Of course, when you put chocolate and cherries together, you can’t go far wrong. This recipe has a delicious gooeyness which complements the flavours […]

Autumn Traybake

This is a variation on what has become one of our favourite recipes. The Damson and Almond traybake recipe just begs to be adapted and at this time of year, we’re enjoying both blackberry and apple versions. This is my latest apple one. The basics remain the same and, if you feel like it, you can […]

Yoghurt That Pours - Tasty But Wasteful!

I’ve been meaning to post details of this for some time, but then today I finished a box and felt compelled to whinge about the waste. Alpro have brought out a “New, Improved” pourable version of their excellent vanilla yoghurt. The yoghurt’s lovely: thick but pourable; smooth on the tongue; very vanilla-flavoured and thoroughly delicious […]

Tesco Free From: New things for the fridge!

Tesco have finally woken up to the market that’s out there in the dairy-free community. They have massively expanded their range of own-brand dairy-free things in their Free From range. I have tried their own natural soya yoghurt (yes, I prefer to spell it the correct British English way rather than the pervasive American way!) […]

Damson and Almond Traybake

You have got to try this!!

This cake is SO delicious that it really ought to be harder to make than it is: it vanishes like the proverbial snow off a hedge! I’ve made it for cake sales at school and for functions when cakes are expected and it’s gone down a storm every time. It […]

Provamel summer fruits soya yoghurt is back! Hooray!

The lovely big pots of Alpro Soya summer fruits soya yoghurt which disappeared a while back are now available again,…but not in the supermarkets. Alpro have brought it back under their premium Organic healthfood shops only Provamel label. It tastes as good as ever and seems to be on offer at the moment in Holland […]

Balti-style Lamb

This is a great meal to make with leftovers from the weekend’s lamb joint. As it uses cooked lamb, the cooking time is fairly short, so it’s a good choice when you fancy something tasty (that isn’t just cold lamb and veg.), but you don’t have much time.

We cook Indian food in a flat-bottomed wok […]
