*Exciting news klaxon! I’ve been nominated in the top 3 for ‘Best Food & Drink Blog’ at the NE Blogger 2015 Awards! So amazing! Thank you everyone who nominated me! The awards ceremony is on 10th November, so I will let you know how I get on! Fingers crossed!*
The leaves on the trees are starting to turn a myriad of beautiful colours, and ‘pumpkin-spice’ everything is dominating our foods and drinks, heralding the arrival of autumn! Summer berries are on their way out of season, but one that’s still in its prime is the autumn raspberry. Deep, dark red, almost purple, these fruits are so intense and sweet, it seems only proper to enjoy them to the max before we’re scraping the ice off our car windscreens every morning! I’ve put a ‘clean’ spin on the traditional Scottish desert Cranachan; a decadent combination of whipped cream, raspberries, toasted oats, honey and whisky. My version is so much healthier, but still just as great! If you wanted to add a slug of whisky to the smoothie, I wouldn’t hold it against you! But if this were your breakfast, I hope you’d resist the temptation.
